I am back from my Hols..x

 I had a fantastic week down at Aberaeron with my parents and Becci, we were really lucky with the weather..it was boiling..

            NewQuay beach..beautiful..x

 Also had a fab time at the beer fesitival with my brother..x

            My card this week is being entered into 3 challenges:   Totally Tilda Challenge - Summer Fun. The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - bright and Cheerful. Sketch Saturday - the chosen sketch.     I had great fun with this card, I used Magnolia Images and shrunk the image down so it was smaller, New edition paper and some odds and ends I had lying about.

Have a lovely day..

A Beautiful Day..x

Such a gorgeous day today but inbetween packing and cleaning for my week away I made a black and white card for a couple of challenges..

I have entered this into 2 challenges:

Sketch Saturday - a sketch
Saturate Canary Challenge Blog - black & white and one other colour.

I am away for a week from Monday, visiting my parets and my brother and his girlfriend, I hope this gorgeous weather keeps up.

Have a great week and take care..


A quick Friday Card...

I decided at the last minute to make this card for the:

Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge

I have used a Saturated Canary Image by the lovely krista and used Sakura pens to colour the image.

I love this image, my youngest daughter Becci is very much into her peace and love and hippy stage, its quite funny really as she can be quite a stroppy 13 year old...
The sun is out , lets hope its here to stay for a while....xxx

Its Raining Again...

After another miserable day, I shut myself away in my little room with some good music and some inspiration..
I came up with this little idea which I have decided to enter in a couple of challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge
Sketch saturday
Totally Tilda Challenge Blog
I am starting to really get back into the swing of things now, I may even start my christmas cards next..
Both kids have gone on a trip for a few days, to London to see Shrek the musical and visit the new Harry Potter world..I am very jealous but I am sure they will have a fab time..
I will miss them , its oh so quiet...xx

Another Card this morning..x

Another Saturated Canary Image, I have recently discovered the very talented Krista and digi images...I love stamps and I am slowly getting used to the fact that you can actually download these images instead of buying the stamp..its an age thing I suppose..
Anyway I coloured this image with Sakura pens, I will get around to treating myself to some copics one day soon. I used various papers in my stash and my favoured flower punch..
I made this card for a friend who has recently got married, I m loving this Tilda image, the image is coloured with wtercolour pencils. The flower I made with strips of paper and a hole punch with a brad....and my flower punch..

The amount of rain we have had today is unbelievable, we took the dogs down the beach this evening and the fields are flooded where the river has burst its banks..my vegetables are swimming nicely and the chickens just stuck their heads out of the door and retreated back in..
Here's wishing  for some sun, and thank you for looking..

Crafting Again..x

I have recently started crafting again after bouts of not bothering, so I thought I would ease myself back in by entering this into The Cupboard Trilogy Challeng. I made this card for my daughters birthday, I think I have used the colours specified.
The image I used is from Saturated Canary by the very talented Krista, and she is coloured using Sakura pens.
Thanks for looking.x

Beautiful weather

Gorgeous day today, it was so warm at lunch time that a few of us in work sat outside among the daffs and ate our lunch....doesn't it just make you feel happy, everyone smiles and talks to each other...started to tidy up the herb garden today, the sage, mint , rosemary and lemon thyme have all survived nicely, I need to plant some parsley and chives and a few others but not quite sure yet what to plant, any suggestions would be great..
We took the dog out for a lovely walk after work, gorgeous views of the beach but forgot the camera, must remember to take it next time..
Busy sewing and watching The Good Life this evening, will post some pics tomorow..
Almost forgot, got five bags of horse manure today, my rhubarb is going to love it..

Take Care ..x
