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!

Anniversary Card

Hello from a snowy Perthshire!
It is so cold  brrrrrrrrrr
A nice day for sitting crafting though!

I am entering the following card into a few challenges.  
This card was made as a commission for an anniversary card.

I made a stepper card on this occasion.
 I used chalks to make a cloud background and stamped a swallow. 
The papers are form K and Co.,
I wanted to make it fairly simple, and just added one flower and a sentiment which I thought was very apt for an anniversary.
"The heart that loves is always young" 
so, on to the challenges.

The challenge #246 at Mo's Digital Challenge is 

Anything Goes with the option of something warm.

I believe love keeps us warm, especially a love 
that has been going strong for many, many years.

The challenge #194 at Party Time Tuesdays is Anything Goes

and finally 

over at Crafting From the Heart challenge #44 is also Anything Goes!!

I'm away to do some more colouring.

If you do stop here for a wee look, please leave a comment, 
or become a follower, I get a wee bitty lonely here on my own!!

Art by Miran Challenge #23

Hello from a very cold St Madoes, Scotland!!!

I have started the new year full of big intentions.  I have joined Kit and Clowder Colouring classes, and I have been tidying out my Craft Room, as it was becoming difficult to even see the floor!!

I'm needing a break right now, so I am entering a couple of challenges.

I only came across Art by Miran images a wee while ago, and I love her images.  Yet another place for me to spend my pennies groan!! lol!!!  

I kept the card quite simple, and just added a wee bit of sparkle to the snowflakes.  You can't really see that on the photo unfortunately. 

 I used my Promarkers
Snowflakes cut from Spellbinder die
Sentiment by Lilli of the Valley
Card is Core-dinations
Paper is from stash.

The First Challenge I am entering with this card is

#23 Anything Goes on Art by Miran blogspot
and the second is
#194 Anything Goes at Party Time Tuesdays Challenge 

I'm off to e-mail some photos to my Sister now, and then I will tackle another box in this craft room!  Have fun and please become a follower if you stop for a look.

Happy New year

Happy New Year Everyone!!  It is a New year, and I have a New Resolution 

1: To Blog at least once a week
2: To spend more time colouring

So here we go 1st Blog of the New Year

This is the Scrapbook Layout which was my Design Team layout
 for Issue 83 of Scrapbook Magazine
It was based on a sketch which I have desperately tried to upload here, but for some reason, it gives me an error every time.

This is my layout

This is a wee close-up

We had a wonderful photo session in the Bluebell Woods.  Jackson was so good, and was a perfect wee model.  Here is another photo from that day. It was wonderful and I was so pleased with the photographs which photographer Ruth Trotter took for me..

Jackson and Mumted who goes everywhere with him.  I love the way he just decided to give her a cuddle.

Have to go now, thanks for stopping and having a look, please become a follower, and please come back real soon.

I will also be appearing  in Issue 86 of Scrapbook Magazine, so watch this space!!
