About Me

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!

Off to School

Hello again!
Shame on me, I've been neglecting my blog again!! 
 I do have an excuse of sorts though, or excuses to be correct!
I hurt by back again, a trapped nerve to be precise. i was in agony and couldn't lie down to sleep, so I had to sit in a chair and cat nap.  it was horrendous!  It's really frustrating when you can't even put your socks on by yourself!  I have an amazing hubby, who helps me without hesitation, and I would be lost without him.   
i have also been volunteering at our new church/Community Centre.  It is an amazing building, and it is proving incredibly popular. 
I have also been making Christmas Cards, for my 2 charities, for a craft stand at The Madoch Centre and also for myself!!!!!

So, at last I have found the time to be here.  this is the card I would like to show you.

I made this card to give to my Grandson, as he started school at the end of August.  this image looked so like him, i just had to use it.  I coloured his jumper red and his tie black and yellow, which are all the colours for his school.  He has been going to nursery at this school for 2 years, so he know all his little friends and we thought he would settle in fine.  For the first 2 weeks however, he became the child from hell!!  I don't know what happened to him, but thankfully it didn't last long.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges.
