This is drivin me nuts

Blogger will not keep me signed in WHY? WHY? this is drivin me nuts I'm trying to leave comments and it just keeps going round and round and round!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any way here's another magnolia card again no flowers now I just cannot do it again, next time there will be flowers and loads of them lol
There are actually three of these coloured images all slightly different they were for the girls for Easter but I never got round to it (no change there then)they were going on the side of those old fashioned cardboard Easter eggs which were to be filled with mini eggs but somehow the mini eggs kept going missing (NO NEVER that's shocking) so I'm using the Tilda's on cards hee hee.

I just love this image so unbelievably cute that hat Awww I want one mind you Id look a right prawn in that lol Hope you have all had a good bank hol even though the weather has been bad.

Have a good week and hopefully blogger will start to behave xx

A Tilda card made a couple of weeks ago I cant remember much about doing it lol, me brains going faster than I realized. It is prisma penciled and has a cheery-lyn die behind and a few gems, that I do know but cant remember the paper oops.

Thanks to all who have asked after my health, I'm bouncing back now must have DESENSITISED to all the dust and I have decided I am not asthmatic NO, NO, NO I'm not having it, actually I haven't got it coz as I say its improving all the time and the dust is worse now than ever lol. Plaster dust allover but the units should start going in at the end of next week and then SHOCK HORROR I can clean up and get to the dust off the telly so everyone will be clear and not blurry.

oh those detested dresses

Oh how the girls hated these VERY expensive M&S dresses I on the other hand loved them

They were a lovely soft material, lovely small flower pattern, beautiful vintage lace collar and buttons oh how I loved to see them in them all spruced up shiny shoes and woolly tights,BUT they hated them detested them never wanted to wear them especially for a school photo lol.
I thought I would scrap these photos (school ones you would never guess would you) as a constant reminder to them of the BEAUTIFUL dresses I used to make them wear.
This L/O is another one I never finished so I am feeling very righteous at the moment The papers are K&co Madelaine which are so vintage looking just like those dresses ha ha. xx

A page finished at long last

I'm trying to finish things off and this is a prime example I started this at the craft den ages ago and I mean ages,

I have a few to finish and I'm going to do another tonight

This is a photo of Lissy and Holly at a May Day celebration at Hunters Bar School it must be 20 years ago (that's frightening) just look at Lissy's little face whilst holding the carton for Holls she has always been a carer, mind you Holls doesn't always appreciate it lol.

The paper is a Bo Bunny double sided one one side is the base the other side is cut up. Lots of layers of flowers and some stuck on the photo coz there was a mans stomach in the background DOH!!!! there is always something in the background good camouflage job though I think

Each flower either has a pearl or a spot of pearl stickles thingy. The double heart has been crackled glazed and everything is edged with good old frayed burlap. The letters are alcohol inked to make them red and the first letters are cosmo cricket bare chipboard covered in the same paper with red ribbon through and there are two Martha Stewart punched strips across the page. xx

a quick card

A quick card for Lissy to give someone at work the only instruction was got to have brown hair so a "vision" in pink and orange lol.

I coloured the image weeks ago with prismas and then thought orange ORANGE what was I thinking I found the papers in my stash the only orange ones I have I think and they have pink in them on the little flowers so pink and orange it is. I used the cheery-Lyn tea party doily die they are really strong and cut out really well will be using this baby again and you have to have the lotv sentiment and a bit of ribbon and that's all there is to it xx

"chubby bracelets"

A scrapbook page for a change. It is a kit from a couple of years ago now and it is a Stephanie Garbett designed page using Websters pages I love these.
The new prima collection that has just come out are similar I think, the prima ones are available at .
This is a picture of Holly she is about 18 months old and still has those wrists that look like they have a bracelet on where the chubby arms meet the chubby hands lol I think she will kill me if she sees this :) I had such a job fining a photo a decent one, I mean we have hundreds but in the 1980's picture quality was rubbish even pics of me in the 60's are better than these they all grainy.People taking pictures of their children now are so lucky with digital cameras Its all so disappointing and frustrating sad life eh if that's all I have to moan about think I better shut up and get another kit done.Be back tomorrow with another coz its bad I haven't done them all yet so I'm off to search for a decent photo of Alicia and one of Sara amongst the zillions of rubbish ones...............xx
