About Me

My photo
Perth, Perthshire, United Kingdom
Welcome to my little corner of the World! I live in Perthshire Scotland with my wonderful husband Eric. We have a daughter, Corinne who is married to Rob and lives in New Zealand, with their boys Harrison and twins Hadley and Dylan. Marie who has a wee boy Jackson, and Greg and his wife Kim, their wee girl Freya, even smaller baby boy Freddie and dog Buddy. I am happy when I am in my craft room, and I love making cards for Charity and also for commissions. I love scrapbooking, and I get my inspiration from my Grandchildren. They are the subjects in most of my Scrapbooking layouts. I have just started to do Mixed Media work, and I am loving it!! I have just started a craft group at our local Church centre, aptly called Saints and Scissors Club! If you can't find me, I will be in my craft room, buried under tons of stash lol!

I've been card making again!    I have decided to enter the card above into a challenge at Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges. I just found this site recently and I love the images.  The theme is "Anything goes"  which makes it nice and easy.   The Christmas Tree actually came off a Christmas Card I received last year (recycling!!!) and the papers are by Bo Bunny.  The sentiment which I thought matched perfectly is from K & Co and is on sale in our shop.  I made the following card for their challenge last week, which was use your own writing on a card, but I didn't get it on here in time!!!   Just thought I would let you see it anyway!!!  I always seem to be late with these challenges, and really must get organised!!

Finally, the following card is being entered into The Saturated Canary Challenge #5 "Anything Goes"  I think these images are wonderful and I love their big eyes!!  I used Nitwits Papers which were free in a craft magazine I subscribe to.  The blue berries and leaves are by Prima and the gems and ribbons were from my stash.  I used Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles on the gift bag to give it a bit of bling!!

I will be selling these cards at a Craft Show in Brechin this Saturday, so hopefully it will be busier than the last fayre we went to!  Just hope the weather is not too bad, as snow has been forecast boo :o( !!!!
Thank you for stopping by once again and please come back again soon!!
