This weeks challenge is congratulations so Ive done a wedding card terrible pictures I'm afraid just couldn't get it right its the light I think. the paper is a papermania one, with a string of butterflies in an embossed gold card the heart is layered up in decreasing size in gold and cream card an organza ribbon tied round the bottom I promise it looks better in the flesh. Everything is available from http://www.craftden.co.uk/
Well what about the weather then Ive been marooned all day not been to work and neither has Helen we just hope our old ladies didn't make an effort to come out we feel soooo guilty but its about 8 inches or even more now and I dare not look out of the window I thought I would craft but all I do is keep going to the window
Where I have moved to is high I didn't realize how much difference it would make sorry Sandra and Ann thought you were exaggerating its the first time in 30 odd years of work that its beaten me and I cant quite believe it.In fact old Harry Graition from look north is at the Norton and its horrendous poor chap mind you all the local nutters in tee shirts were dancing about behind him WHY, WHY, do people do that it just makes them look deranged lol
Sara and James got home okay a bit dicey at the bottom of Woodseats road and never want to do it again but no snow in Berkshire lucky them. Alicia walked in to work through meersbrook park deserted this morning at 7am, tonight as she walked home it was full of kids sledging in the dark lol. Right I'm shutting up now at long last no one to talk to sad eh lol x

same old same old yuk

" where are my legs"
outside the kitchen door

week 26 animals at anything goes

Here we are on week 26 and this week its animals over at http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com/, hmm what to do I decided to do a scrapbook page with my "baby" Link or Linky as we call him stupid name but he came with it, as the subject looks just like his mummy doesn't he lol. He looks just as though he is kissing his piggy toy cute or what?The papers are Bo bunny I just love these papers the quality is fantastic I have punched round the edge with an ek success punch "paw prints" then added TWO not ONE, TWO crochet flowers these are my precious, precious stash they were made for me under blackmail conditions by one of my lovely ladies at the hairdressers Hazel who I have known all my life I turned on the sad face and said I needed (coz wanted gets nothing) some but they were soooooooo expensive sniff sniff so she made me half a dozen in white and then I glimmer misted them, I am soo evil and basically stingy.The letters are from two sets I'd not got enough of one set so I had to mix them up in fact I wanted it to say give us a kiss but I had completely run out of Ss so it reads ME
Then I just piled on the flowers with gems and pearls all clashing colours and all sizes and added two heart pins. Everything except my crochet bits are available from Lynne at http://craftden.co.uk . Look forward to seeing what everyone does this week at http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com/ I'm off for a cuppa now see you later xx

This is one of the four cards we made at http://craftden.co.uk last weekend we actually made four. Lynne really cracked on and sometimes we had to laugh you cant chat and listen at the same time sorry Lynne but it was a good day and she (who's she cats mother) sorry Lynne is running another on 4Th Dec so taken another day off work and am looking forward to it.
Back to the card a fabulous magnolia image coloured with copics I'm enjoying the change having got my copics back, yes you know who you are Lissy and WHO now says she loves colouring but find making the cards difficult don't we all thinking up stuff, whew its hard work lol oh yes the card sorry, the background is another magnolia stamped and covered in glamour dust the sky is distress ink stormy sky the flower is a Martha Stewart poinsettia and finally a layered Martha Stewart snowflake all layered on to navy blue dotted Swiss x

week 25 let it snow..

Wow week 25 already I cant believe it that's almost 6 months of challenges. Now on Saturday I went to Craftden for some R&R and did I need it you know how you just have one of those weeks anyway I digress I had a really good day made four cards just need to add the finishing touches,but back to this weeks challenge "LET IT SNOW"
This is my card,It is Tilda and Edwin dancing round the lamppost in the snow that's twinklets on the bottom of the card I hope you can see them. I have copic coloured the image for a change the colours are B00 and B02 and B95 B97 B39 the hair is E37 E47 I think that's right I forgot to write them down, Dohh no surprise there then lol

The paper is Bo Bunny and it has embossed snowflakes on it then its mounted on some pearl dark blue card and there are a couple of pieces of each of them on the card and snowflakes in the same card layered up and finished with a gem The sentiment is one from http://craftden.co.uk/ that I bought ages ago but I have also used it a lot.
I hope you like it I'm not sure, I seem to have lost my way again,everything seems boring and all the same, thank heavens for Lynne's Christmas card Saturdays for some new input, next one at the beginning of December, have a look on the Craftden website its well worth it

anything goes challenge, Embossing

This is this weeks challenge post and this week it is embossing so I have gone a little mad.The pictures actually are not that good bit of a light issue at this time of year. I have used GCD peace and joy I love these papers they are foiled and EMBOSSED w-hay first one then I turned it over because they are double sided (don't you love that more for your dosh) and DRY EMBOSSED it on the bigshot I'm telling you that is coming with me when I am buried I love that machine, next I cut the Santa sentiment and TRIPLE EMBOSSED that and lastly versamarked and clear EMBOSSED the edges of the nestability that Tilda is mounted on. That's embossing covered.
The edges of the paper were distressed with Tim Holtz distressing tool. Tilda is distress inked with Victorian velvet. The little green bow is a papermania one and under that is a tiny little gold safety pin with two tiny bells attached. The poinsettia has been twinkled to death it is a Marianne die and the gold bits in the poinsettia are from my Christmas stash.
Everything is from http://craftden.co.uk/ . Thanks for stopping by and taking a look xx

Another Wedding Scrapbook Page

Here's another page is this getting boring now? This is the order of service and the menu. Sara and James printed and decorated the order of service but had the menus printed elsewhere.
This time the backing paper is brown bazzil and another Paris nights paper. The flowers and butterflies are spritzed with gold shimmer and edged in old faithful frayed burlap and that's all there is to it.
At this moment Ive got Bugsy Malone on film 4 hopefully drowning out the fireworks so Link wont hear them oops its obviously not loud enough there he goes barking and racing all over like something demented. I love this film so many famous faces Jodie Foster as Tallulah and Scott Biao as Bugsy priceless, great memories of the late 70s of a long gone teenager lol mind you the girls loved it too when it was on telly so much they bought the DVD and CD so maybe I'm not so weird. Anyway I better see if I can keep link calm!!!!!!!!!!! Have a great weekend x

week 23 B, at Anything goes challenge

I think you could say this is a B. its week 23 on http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com/ I have done another page for Sara's book the paper is from the Paris nights collection from Lynne at http://craftden.co.uk/ mounted on cream bazzil then I stamped on the page which I used to do a lot. the stamps are also from craftden one is a Kelly Panacci but I have had it a long time its from the love collection the other is a little ivy stamp and I don't know what that one is sorry but it was from Lynne's. I cut the massive B on the cricut( yes I've got it back for a limited time before Lissy from http://lissyslittlelovelys.blogspot.com/ comes and pinches it again)and cut some of the flourishes from the spare patterned paper and added a couple of pearls from my stash.I love this picture of Sara she looks so regal great memories of a great day xx
