Lets Go

This is my take on the weekly challenge over on UK scrappers this week, really late in getting it done. This is my little dog Tara, we were packing the car to go to the caravan for the weekend...and in she got...and refused to budge LOL, 45 minutes she sat there. She was certainly determined not to be left behind....not that we would have...she is such a little darling.

Just some cards

I have been having some fun playing with my stamps, I really want to master colouring stamped images, so I have been sitting in my craft room, listening to my talking books and favourite form of multi tasking.

SSCC # 23

I started this card yesterday for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #23, but with sorting things for Girls' Brigade etc I did not get to finish it until today, I am still getting used to colouring my images so loving these stamping challenges. This weeks challenge was to use a bit of green somewhere on your card, to signify the tiny green shoot that first appears from a tiny seed. She chose a lovely piece of scripture to go along with this challenge.

1 Peter 1:23 (NIV)

"For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God."

Old and New

This week on UK scrappers the challenge was to scrap a piece of history, I had recently been looking at photographs of my mum, so decided to use one of them for the challenge....I had also just got a beautiful photograph of my friends daughter, so funnily enough both my LO's feature children....separated by 78 years...but both photographs were taken at a time when the world was an adventure waiting to happen.


I know it may seem a bit early but I have quite a lot of things coming up and wanted to make sure I got organised with some cards for various birthdays etc, however I sat down to make them when I spotted the stamps a friend got me for Christmas. So I decided to make a valentine card for my DH.

Faux Leather Wallets

I saw a tutorial for these wallets on splitcoast stampers and just had to try them, I loved it so much I made 3 wallets and then decided to do a minibook for in each one, the minibooks have pics of my mum and dad in them, so I am keeping one and giving the other two to my sisters. Just hope they like them:)

UKS weekly challenge LO

This is my take on the weekly challenge over on UK Scrappers, it had to incorporate - Forbidden Fruit - Flowers or Bling - Ribbon. I took up quilting last year so my forbidden fruit is Fabric, I just want it all LOL, so that is what I chose as the theme for my LO

Two new Layouts

These are a couple of Layouts I have been working on for a couple of challenges on UK scrappers.

Snowy Saturday

Well once again the snow has been falling steadily all morning, only now can we begin to see some blue sky peeking through. I might go out later and take some photographs, not taken any of the snow, but I suppose I should make some record of the worst snow in this area for over 20yrs, especially as this is the start of a new decade. But today was always going to be an at home day, I have a few projects I started earlier in the week I want to finish, but before I can get to them I need to tidy up, once the place looks tidy I will feel better about spending the rest of the day scrapping and sewing:) I will hopefully be back later with some finished projects.

OH the weather outside is frightful......

I can honestly say I am now sick and tired of snow, it is still about 9 inches deep outside, I am fed up digging out my poor little car. In fact my poor little car is slowly losing the fight of being able to reach the bottom of the ruts in the road, I am scared that one of these times when I take it out, it will just balance on the hard packed ice in the middle of the road.
It is definitely a time to snuggle up with a nice warm hot chocolate, a good book, some sewing, a movie or better yet a nice warm man....oh well hubbies busy so it looks like Harry Potter and hot chocolate for me.
