Birthday Card

A quick card I've made for my soon to be mother in law.
It's her Birthday on Sunday and I almost forget! lol

It's going to be a slow summer.

Having no car is an absolute nightmare when you
live in a small village with no shop. It's funny how
you take a car so much for granted until it's gone!
I'm stuck in the house until it's fixed so I've been
doing housework! I know, I must be bored lol.
So once the house was spick and span I thought I'd
make a quick birthday card.

The 21 is embossed in black but you can't really see
it in the pic, not really had the light recently with the
pants weather to get a decent photo sadly. Really
hope we get some better weather soon :o)

For a challenge long ago..

Karin set us a challenge a while ago to make
a tag using a stamp we've not used before.
I only remembered this challenge when Kaz
blogged her tag pmsl (sorry Karin) so got to
work on making mine.
Background was made using acrylic paints
and dazzling metallics and both stamps are
ones I've not used before :o)
I'd say click on the image for a closer look but
it doesn't seem to want to work today lol

Autumn in Summer..

It's gorgeous weather outside, so I decided
to make an Autumnal canvas.. obviously lol

I'm not sure it's quite finished yet, it needs
something... maybe some words but I shall
leave it as it is for now :o)

Sunny Weather and no housework..

It's been so beautiful here for the last week that I've
rather neglected my housework so today as it's dull
and drizzly I decided to tackle it all. I started by
making a cuppa, sitting down to contemplate
where to begin and ended up messing around
with digital images and photo's on the pc all
morning lol Ah well.. there's always tomorrow!!

The tree is a photo I took while we were in Scotland
at the beginning of May which I've messed around
with in PSP.. Needless to say it was a far nicer way
to spend my morning than doing HW :o)

of a ballet girl. Thanks Seona for another
great challlenge :o)

Wednesday Stamper - Bella Italia

It's been so long since I last did a challenge so
I thought I'd get back in the saddle by
having a go at Wednesday Stamper this week.

The theme is 'Bella Italia' and here's my entry :o)
The image I've used is from and is
of the Trevi Fountain in Rome.

apologies for the photo's. just couldn't seem to get
a decent one today lol

Bits and Bobs...

Seona set us another great challenge to make anything
we liked with the bits and bobs she sent to us, including
some lovely papers lol

I decided to make a tag for this one, think I threw
everything but the kitchen sink at it lol but I'm
quite happy with how it turned out.

I can't believe this is my first post of 2009 and it's
March already! where's the start of the year gone?
We've all settled well into our new home and I'm
now hoping I'll get more time to craft, I really have
missed it!
I altered this matchbox for a challenge Seona set us back
in January. I'm only now blogging it as I lost the pics tut.
It's the first thing I'd made since well before christmas
and I really enjoyed getting my fingers inky again.
