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!

The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog

Well I hope you all had a super Christmas!  We had fun with Jackson, playing with all his toys, it was brilliant!  wee Freya and her Mummy and Daddy came down on Boxing Day, and the fun started all over again!  Here are a couple of photos of them both playing with their new toys.

I'm still waiting for photos from New Zealand but I will pop some n here when I get them!

I have not had any time to do any crafty projects this week, but I am entering the following card in the
 where the theme this week is 

Thee are 4 penguins on this too, so I hope it is allowed!!  I had such a job tracking down this digital stamp, I saw it on Pinterest and had to follow through to a blog and then search through the whole thing until I found it so as I could then find out where it came from and then buy it!!    in case you want to buy it, it is called Snowman and Penguins and it can be found here   Crisy's Digis for Whimsy Stamps

Off to do a layout now, thanks for stopping here and come back soon!

Mo's Digital Challenge # 213

The theme for the challenge at Mo's Digital Challenge this week is

Challenge #213 - Animals, Birds, Bees, Insects, &/or Fairies w/Mo image 

This card has a wee doggy poking his wee nose through the hole in the fence.  It was just crying out to be used as a "Hello" card!

I coloured the image with promarkers, and all the materials were from my stash. Trying desperately to use up all the stuff I have lying around- I am sure all crafters have the same problem.  As well as all the paper, chipboard, flowers etc, I have wool - bags and bags of wool, but of course when I go to make something, I never seem to have the colour or thickness I need so I just go and buy some more!

I'm going to make a layout now, haven't done one for a couple of weeks, so withdrawal symptom s setting in!
Thanks for stopping, please call again!

Party Time Tuesdays

The challenge at  Party Time Tuesdays is 
Merry Christmas Projects

Here is my card for the challenge, and it shows a Magnolia stamp from A Christmas Story 2012 and is called Tilda with Two Gifts.

I used Promarkers to colour the image, and cut out a deckled rectangle frame from Spellbinders and mounted it onto red card.
I also used A Fir Tree die from Marianne's which I covered with White Flower Soft to resemble snow.
 I also used papers from Bo Bunny and the north pole stamp is from Lily of the Valley
A very quick and easy card to make!

Must go now, time to make some dinner for the family!
Thank you for stopping here and please come back soon!

Mo's Digital Challenge

I have been poorly all week with a chest infection, so nothing much has been made in my little craft room.  I have withdrawal symptoms today, so had to do some crafting!!

The Challenge over at Mo's Digital Challenge is "I is for" 

So here is my card and I have got sparkly icicles on the corner! 
I adore this image, and she was fun to colour too.  I cut the image outside the Spellbinders frame, so her wing sticks out past the edge of the frame. 

Materials used were
Image - Mo Manning - Winter Fairy Talva
Papers - Bo Bunny
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley
Snowflakes - Spellbinders
Icicles - Frostyviille Corner - Memory Box

I started to write my Christmas Cards last night, and realised I still did not have enough, so I will have to go and make more now!

Hope it is not too cold in your corner of the world!!
