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!

Let's Crop

Hello everyone.  It's a dreary dull day here in Perthshire,  the sun has got lost yet again. He keeps teasing us with 2 gorgeous days, then goes again to heaven only knows where!!

I have made a few cards lately, so I would like to show you this one, 
with a free image from Simply B Stamps
We had to use the image, the sentiment and make splatters on the card.  I have done everything as requested!!  I used Cosmic Shimmer and a brush to make the splatters.  The papers are really old, so I am happy to be using up some stash.  I'm afraid I don't have any details for the other items 
I have used, they were all nameless in boxes.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Crafty Girlz Challenges # 3 Anything Goes
Through the Craftroom Door   Anything Goes June 16-20

That's all for now,  more cards need to be made!  Thanks for stopping!!

Mr Tea

This is my card for the Progressive Challenge Part 2 
over at the Rick St. Dennis Blog 
You can find this funny wee image here  Mr Tea 
 I spent a lot of time trying to colour the cat to look like fur,
 but I think I need more practice!!

This image was very good for me, as I love tea and drink cups
 and cups of it throughout the day.
I mounted the image onto green card, and decorated the base
 with green  card, and pink paper. 
 The paper actually has teapots and cups on it,
 but you can't really see it.

I fussy cut out cups and cupcakes to finish it off, as tea is always better with a wee cake!!  thanks for having a wee look at my blog, please leave a message so as I know you have been here.  thank you and see you soon!!

Haute Couture

Sorry, I have been Missing in Action lately.  I seem to have so much going on at the moment! It is quite scary.  I have slotted in a bit of time for a bit of blogging and also some colouring hopefully.
This image is called Haute Couture, and is another of Rick St. Dennis' Digital Images.  Isn't she glamorous?  Here is the link on Zibbett if you want to find her.

I decorated the card using very old paper from a Hot of the Press pad.  I added ribbon and gems, and the flowers and silver corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  This is actually one of the images I coloured when I was on holiday.  Oh memories!!  I am now going to upload this to the Rick St Dennis page on Facebook.  I have another card to upload tomorrow, when hopefully I will get more time.

Have fun crafting and thanks for stopping for a look.  Please leave a comment to let me know you have paid a visit.
