Painting...

I have no pics to post today, I have been busy water colour painting this week....I stamped a load of images and just sat and painted, ready for cards, atcs whatever takes my fancy...
Also I have been running riot on ebay this weekend, I bought basic grey papers, pens, more papers and I treated myself to a Sarah Kay stamp from the Glitter Pot.....can't wait for the post now......I'll have to get the kids to sit on me now to stop me getting up to look out the door every 5mins until everything comes.......
Might treat myself to some h20s this weekend.....anyone tried them ?

A Tag Book....

I have been quite busy today, I made a tag book, like a scrapbook on tags....I made the tags out of a cardboard box and covered them with some paper and then treated them like a scrapbook page....I added some stamped images that have been coloured, some flowers, beads and butterflies and then joined them altogether with some ribbon.....
I enjoyed this bit of crafting and I am going to make another one with different pictures.....






Just a couple of notebooks that I have covered with some nice paper and decorated, i don't know what to use them for yet but I am sure something will come to mind.


A very good friend of mine Sarah (Tiggertastic) made this gorgeous wall hanging for me...isn't it gorgeous, it is honour of my girls who are very much into drama and dance...it has pride of place on my wall above my desk so I can see it when I am working....thank you Sarah, you are a gem..xx

Rugby is taking over my life....

I haven't blogged for a week or so because as some of you may know, the six nations rugby is on......and being Welsh....this is a huge highlight of the year.....I don't like to rub it in but we have won the first two matches against Scotland and .....ahem....England....
Of course, these matches are watched in the pub where vast amounts of alcohol is consumed.....lots of singing and perhaps a few sheep thrown in for good luck....lol......I have been crafting inbetween matches and working but I will post some pics when the rugby fever has calmed down.....wish us luck girls and now.....1.2.3.......bread of heaven,bread of heaven, feed me till I want no more.........I can't hear you...sing up....

Wedding invites

I have spent the past few days making wedding invites for a friend, she loves the fraggles and her husband to be looks like one. The Fraggles were a Jim Henson creation, bouncy colourful characters who lived in a rock. Anyway, these are the invites, very plain and simple, just using cream card, some stickers, images of fraggles and a stamp..

Sprockett the dog on the back of the invites.

The evening invites, with doozers along the bottom.


It Snowed!!!!

Last night , we had some snow , it wasn't loads but it was enough to close the schools and cause some disruption.....it didn't last long but we managed to go out in it this morning and play for a while and build a snowman..
Becky and her snowman, he didn't last very long...
Basil, waiting for Becky to throw a snowball.

Becky making snowballs ready to throw at me...lol....


Wol in the snow, she loves to sit out in all weather....the evening before, she had snow on her head.
