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!

Hearts and flowers

 Hello again, from a wonderfully warm and sunny Perthshire!!  I can't believe how warm it is today!  Gorgeous day, so Eric and I went for a wee walk.  Still trying to persuade him to get a dog, but he isn't budging :(   I won't give up though! 

I have been busy with my mixed media projects recently, and I have a couple of things to show you.

i really enjoyed doing this heart.  the colours are lovely and muted and the embellishments are so pretty.

I especially like the wee balloon resin.  It's a beautiful wee thing, and just a little  bit different.

Here is another wee close-up of the embellishments. The large rose is stunning.

This is the 2nd one.  this one was a bit different, as we had to fussy cut the flowers, but I have to admit they look 3d on the canvas!!  I love the colours on this one, as blue is my favourite colour.

I completed another one last night, but I haven't taken a photo yet, so I will add it soon.  These are all from Creative Craft Academy, part of Craft Box.  This is a monthly kit which provides all "ingredients" and online tuition to follow.  Anna is really good on her online videos and she gives you lots of new ideas.

Well, I had better go and catch up with my chores

Bye for now!!

Rory's Penguin

Hello and thank you for coming to my little corner of the world!

It's time for the Creatalicious Challenge once more.

We have been sponsored by The Colour of Love (Formerly Lacy Sunshine) and I have the cute 
Rory's Penguin to show you on my card.

I just love penguins, so I am slightly jealous of Rory!!
I used my Polychromo Pencils to colour this card

Why don't you head on over and take part in our challenge?
