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!

My goodness, time is just flashing by at the moment.
 It is very true, the older you get, the quicker time goes by.

I'd like to show you a card I have made using an image
 from Rick St. Dennis

 This wee chap is called Archie and he can be found here on Zibbet 
I made a simple card, but his shirt is as loud as can be!! 
 He looks very happy in it though, and who can blame him, he is on holiday!!  
I'm not quite sure what to use this card for, but it may be good 
for a retirement card.  Once I make up my mind I will put a sentiment on it.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges.

Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
Crafty Girlz Challenges - Anything Goes / Summer Holidays
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes

I am now going to start a Scrapbook Layout before Jackson appears for his sleepover.  I don't get much crafting done when he is here as he wants to take all my pens etc.  If I give him his pens and crayons they are not as good as mine!  They learn young don't they? LOL!!
Have a good weekend everyone and thank you so much for stopping here for a wee while. xx

I would like to share a layout of my beautiful wee Granddaughter Freya.  I just love being able to do girlie layouts now, and I can see her Scrapbook being far bigger than any other!!

These photographs were taken on the day she was born, when she was still in hospital with her Mummy.  She is gorgeous.  I'm biased of course!  Poor Kim looks exhausted, and Greg isn't much better!
On the tag, it details her date and time of birth -

The sun is coming out here, so I think I may make the most of it and go out to the garden after lunch.  Jackson will be here, so he can run around for a while.  Have fun whatever you are doing!

Morning Goddess Edie

It's time to reveal our cards for the Progressive Challenge at Rick St. Dennis' Sparkle and Glitter Blog

My card shows Morning Goddess Edie resplendent in her 
dressing gown and curlers!!   
I used the sentiment "Pamper yourself it's your Birthday" 
as I thought this is what she looked like she was doing!
If you head on over to the blog, 
you can see what the other DT members have done. 

Here is a wee close-up of the embellishments I used. 
 I am trying to use up my stash, and I am taking out items I 
have had for ever and ever, and I am making myself use them!!  
The flowers you see here fit into that category.  
Don't know where they are from, or how long I have had them, 
but at long last I have used them!! Hooray!!! 
 (or some of them at least, I still have 3 in the packet though, 
which didn't match the colour scheme)lol!!

That's all for now, off to do some more colouring.  
Thanks for stopping for a wee look.

Card for Freya

Hello and welcome to my blog.  I have a new card to share with you today.  
I made this for my wee Granddaughter, Freya, who was 2 years old yesterday.
I am making an attempt at different card folds, to get away from the square ones which I usually do.

Okay, it's still square in places, but it is a bendy square! LOL!!
I used one of my favourite colour combos, pink and brown.

 I can't remember the maker of the image above, but it is a really sweet design.  I have put all my rubber stamps into special folders, and no longer have the details.  If you recognise the maker, please let me know?

The two images above are from Lilli of the Valley.
The paper is from Bo Bunny (my favourite)
The pinwheels are from Papermania.
Gems are from stash.
