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!

Cutie Pie # 58

Hello from a very rainy, dark St. Madoes!
The Scottish word I like to use is driech and it fits today very well.  I really don't like this kind of weather.

Another challenge card today - cutie Pie Challenge Blog have the theme 

Cute Scenes and Backgrounds

 I have done this sunny scene to cheer me up.  The images are all from  Make it Crafty where you will find some brilliant  digital stamps and the backgrounds are amazing.
I've gone for quite muted colours on this, using peach and lemon which are colours I don't normally use.
I'm still battling through Christmas Cards and I will post some on here soon.
Hope the sun is shining wherever you are.
Bye for now!

Party Time Tuesday's colour challenge

 Over at Party Time Tuesdays  the challenge of the week is to use this colour palette.  These are some of my favourite colours I must admit,

I have used a digital fireplace background - can't remember from where and a Magnolia stamp.  
I have cut out the Magnolia image and put some foam pads behind her to give a bit of definition to the card.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch and a piece of ribbon for the side of the card.
I am slowly getting my Christmas Cards made, I also sell cards in the local Hotel, so they took a bundle away the other day.  Just means I have more to make now! LOL!!
I am going now to  make a layout for Scrapbook Magazine using a sketch.  Look out for 2 of my layouts in Issue 78
Thanks for stopping by!

Bo Bunny Papers, 
Wild Orchid Flowers
Magnolia Doo-Hicky Swirl

Ribbon and gems from stash

I am slowly making my way through my Christmas Cards, but time is so short at the moment!  I think everyone feels the same at this time of year, though, don't we?
