About Me

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!

Cutie Pie Challengeand Design Team Call

 Hello and welcome back for my second post of the day!!  Over at  The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog they are looking for Easel cards which are based on the sketch above.  As Easels are my favourite cards to make, I just had to give it a go!!  They are also having a Design Team Call, so I am entering my card for that too!  Wish me luck won't you?  I have used a stamp from Molly Blooms, which is so cute!  The papers were free from a magazine (slowly getting through my stash!) and the flowers are really old too!  I threaded some Baker's Twine through the circles which were cut using my Nestabilities, and I added a piece of yellow ribbon. I also added some little orange gems in the corners.  I must admit, yellow and orange are not my favourite colours to work with, so I challenged myself with this card!!
Okay, I am going to take advantage of this lovely day and sit in the sun for a wee while, don't worry, I will put my suncream on!  Enjoy your day, wherever you are!
