Wedding Acceptance - this is my 2nd post of the day so please scroll down for the earlier one

When you get to our age it seems like we don't get invitations to many weddings!! In fact our last was July 2003!!! We have been invited to join a young couple at their wedding in July of this year too!!! Whilst we know the bride's father quite well and have known him for years, we felt it only right to formally accept the invitation so kindly sent. I don't yet know who made the invitations but they were beautifully hand made in navy and silver so I thought I would reply in a similar colour scheme . . .

Materials used:
  • 5" square white card and envelope
  • Kanban image and Stampendous RSVP inked in versamark ink and heat embossed using detail silver embossing powder.
  • Navy ribbed card and silver mirri card formed the matting layers and all corners rounded using a fiskars punch
  • Navy organza ribbon wrapped round the card and fastened in a knot
  • 3 crystal gemstones to finish

And the envelope carried the matching image inked in memento london fog. The insert was generated on the computer using AR Cena font in navy to complete the co-ordinated look and a double heart punched in the bottom right corner.

I'm pleased with the way this turned out and hope the bride and groom will enjoy receiving this acceptance in their own chosen colour scheme.

And the update on the weather here - lights are on (it's 3:05 pm) and it's STILL raining!!! Hope you are having better weather where you are today.

Morning readers and welcome to the start of another week!

Hi there and welcome to the start of yet another week - not entirely sure where the year is going but blimey - it'll be JUNE on Wednesday!

Saturday saw a new challenge over on the Simply Less Is More blog and by Sunday afternoon there were 127 entries already!! The challenge was to pick a square from a choice of 5 (each corner plus central). Well it's obviously hit the inspirational spot with many of us as quite a few are entering a number of times - this if my FIFTH and I have to control the urge to make more before people get fed up of seeing my name!! This one is suitable (I think) for male or female use......

Materials used:
  • 6" square white, 300 gsm card, with matching envelope
  • Hero Arts image inked in Brilliance rocket red gold (how fab a colour is this?)
  • Do Crafts sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black
I decided to make the envelope co-ordinate and simply stamped the image three times whilst only inking twice. I also did the same with the insert but added the sentiment in black again to fully co-ordinate this card.

Hope you like it.

In the meantime, the Sunday themed challenge over on Craft Mad & Loving It has been unveiled by Karen and it is ........ SONG TITLES!!! Well there's been all sorts of mayhem with uploading over there so I inserted my retirement card (penguin with balloon) just to see if it worked (which, I'm pleased to say, it did) so I had a quick look on youtube and came up with THE BALLOON SONG - it's a really dreadful rendition but hey, it's a song!!! I think I shall probably have another go when time permits, in the meantime ..... this one could be Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - whaddya think? I think I prefer to think of SHOOTING STAR by Bad Company.

Last evening saw us visiting friends in Gloucester, dinner and a catch up - which was great. We've been friends with this couple for, like, EVER! Sandra is just starting out with her own business, and doing extremely well, so I've decided the star card will be heading her way as soon as I can get it in the post. BEST OF LUCK Sandra.

Happy Monday peeps, do you think it's going to be BBQ weather today? Personally, I'm going with NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO as it's been raining ALL night!

Sunday, 29 May 2011

A nice relaxing Sunday morning ......

Hi there,

Welcome to a lazy Sunday morning! Also welcoming my new follower, Squirrel, glad you found me and hope you'll be popping back from time to time!

Right, having teased you about my "grumpie" session I'm pleased to say that my card arrived at it's destination so this is no longer a "spoiler" post .....

Materials used:
  • 5" square white care and envelope
  • Smeared ink "grumpie" image and sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black, on to white card and cut out
  • Copics and Pro Markers to colour said grumpie
  • Navy ribbed card die cut in to a scalloped rectangle
  • Organza ribbon
  • Double sided sheet adhesive cut in to a rectangle slightly larger than my grumpie panel and then Jones Tones blue glitter applied - liberally!!!
  • Silver glitter panel run through my die cut machine inside an embossing folder
  • Blue gems to finish

Hope you like it, my pal assures me she did!!!

And now to a FOURTH entry for this week's challenge over on Simply Less Is More!! This challenge just goes from strength to strength - with over 80 entries already! WOWSER - this seemed like such a simple idea and yet - I KEEP thinking of other things to do with this . . . . thought I'd try a different corner this time!

Materials used:
  • 6" scalloped square white card and envelope
  • Cats Pyjamas image and the word HAPPY inked in memento tuxedo black, directly on to my base card
  • The word RETIREMENT (by Hampton Art - I THINK) inked in memento tuxedo black also directly on to my base card.
  • S.U. marker pen to draw freehand border around my chosen square
  • Diamond glaze on the balloon, hat and "trumpet"
  • Three silver "pearls" to finish

I THINK I'm done for this week . . . but then again, I DO have bottom right left to use if I fancy another go!

Have a great Sunday - my hubby is still debating whether or not to go flying - it's dull, it's grey and it's windy ...... but I BET he will!

3rd post for today - just a challenge update

Just a quickie from me ....... with my third and FINAL entry for the Simply Less Is More challenge blog which also happens to be a CAS Sketchie card for Craft Mad & Loving It!! Two challenges one card - smart huh!?!??!



Materials used:
  • 5" square white card and envelope
  • Inkadinkado image inked in memento tuxedo black on to a die cut circle and edged using Distress Ink in Barn Door
  • Pro Markers to colour image
  • Red 3.25" square, edged using the "poinsettia" Martha Stewart PATP set
  • Two iridescent snowflakes, one silver snowflake and one red brad - to embellish
  • Crystal stickles to highlight

Now, having used the snowflakes I'm not too sure that it won't exclude my entry to the LIM but . . . . we'll see.

Hope your Saturday is proceeding apace - as you can see from my crafting - the weather's vile round these parts!!!!



2nd post - challenge entry!

Hi there,

If you missed my earlier post then do please scroll down, you'll have missed the fab chalenge and sketchie published today.

After a little "electronic chat" with Joanne Wardle we decided to have a go at the LIM challenge using the same stamp . . . . it's such a little beauty this month!

Materials used:
  • 5" square white card and envelope
  • C.S. freebie inked in versamark, dusted with glitter gold embossing powder and then heated
  • Hero Arts sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black

There - bet you can't wait to see what Joanne does with her stamp

Morning and welcome to sketchie day!

Morning all,

Welcome to another Bank Holiday weekend, now THIS is supposed to  be more like traditional British Bank Holidays - cold, wet, windy or all of the above!!! Hope you have nice weather where you are!

Saturdays are craft challenge days and there are two I try to do each Saturday . . . .

There's the Simply Less Is More blog which has a CAS (clean and simple) challenge each week - lots of white space required for these. This week's challenge is: 5 Squares! - pick a square for your design but leave the rest as pure white space! YIKES this is a tough one ....... and yet there were six entries before 09:30!!!

My new issue of Craft Stamper arrived this morning, with it's FAB free chandelier stamp . . . which led me on to a sympathy card (although it's versatile enough to use for many many other occasions). I enjoyed this idea and strongly suspect there may be up to four more this week - one for each corner perhaps!!!

Materials used:
  • White 5"  square card and envelope
  • Craft stamper freebie inked in memento tuxedo black on to 300gsm watercolour board and then edged in black ink
  • Grey Quickutz, linen texture, grey self adhesive card
  • Black panel
  • Hero Arts sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black directly on to the base card
  • One single faux crystal to finish

Hope you like it, here's the sketch ....

The other is the sketchie challenge over on Craftbubble's Craft Mad & Loving It group which, this week features a sketch by Karen, who has added the twist of CHRISTMAS!! In typical Craftbubble fashion - it's the weekend (and a LONG weekend at that) so it's playing up and everyone's having trouble uploading photos so Karen's posted her challenge here too so that, if you want to have a go you can post your entry on your blog and link it on the CMLI blog - GOOD LUCK

Have a fantabulous Bank Holiday weekend . . . however you end up spending it! Since it's a typical Bank Holiday here I think I may well be ........ CRAFTING!

2nd post - challenge entry!

Hi folks,

If you missed my first post then do please scroll down and check out the post and my Friday Funny for this week!

This afternoon I decided to have a go at the new Bah Humbug challenge which, this week, features BELLS!!! Here's what the brief is:

Challenge 21 ... "Sleigh Bells Ring...
... are you list'nin'?
In the layyyyyn, snow is ..."
"Jingle Bells ... Jingle Bells ... Jingle All The Way!
Oh What Fun It Is To ..."
"Ding Dong Merrily On High!
In Heav'n The Bells Are Ringing!"

We've given you a few, not so subtle, clues to our theme this week and you'll have quickly sussed that we want to see jingly-jangly dingly-dangly bells on your projects.

I don't normally get the chance to have a go at these challenges until the weekend but ...... hubby decided to have an excursion to the flying field which left me able to craft without guilt. I know I SHOULD be doing hous***rk but, somehow, I would far rather be crafting! - go figure. You know how it is once you've finished you set to thinking about how you could have improved it ...... wish I could hit that stage BEFORE I stuck everything down!! Thought afterwards that maybe I should have cut away more of the white .... but I left it there so the bells were just, well, more obvious!!! Given they were embossed in gold I thought perhaps they would disappear against the strong coloured stripes - what do you think?

Materials used:
  • 300 gsm 6" square white scalloped card and envelope
  • Red card
  • Yellow self adhesive velour
  • Green/red/yellow/blue striped paper
  • Gold card die cut in to a circle
  • CuddlyBuddly image and Studiog sentiment inked in memento black and cut out.
  • Image coloured using Pro Markers, sentiment coloured using Copic Atyou Spica pens
  • Anita's bells image inked twice in versamark and then embossing using gold sparkle embossing powder
  • Stamp positioner to line up the bells image stamp
  • Fiskars corner rounder punch
  • Faux crystal gemstones
  • Crystal stickles to highlight

And here's an envelope to go with my card, using the same studiog sentiment and a Custers Last Stamp holly image - both coloured with Copic Atyou Spica glitter pens

Hope you like them - if you need help and/or inspiration with your pile of Christmas cards this year then why not pop over to this blog and have a go!

Also hoping you are enjoying your Friday - have a great weekend too

Morning readers - the weekend starts here!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to new followers Dana and Heather, I hope you will both find time to pop back soon.

Yesterday saw me getting grumpie! in the nicest possible sense of the word! A pal bought me a sheet of grumpies unmounted rubber stamps as part of my birthday gift (THANKS matey) so I sat and cut them out the other evening and could hardly wait to get them inky. Only problem is (and this is NO criticism) they are Halloween Grumpies and October's an awfully long way away so, what to do with said Halloween Grumpies in May!! Well, I was talking to a pal and she set me to thinking of a splendid project so . . . I set to work. Now, I can't share this with you today as I mailed it yesterday and it might spoil the surprise as I KNOW she's a follower so I hope to be able to share my little grumpie with you tomorrow - just wanted to let you know that I had indeed been crafting!

And now for this week's Friday Funny ... this week provided by Liz and Graeme - thanks guys! It's a long one so ..........  ENJOY

Your Yearly Dementia Test-- only 4 questions

Our Yearly Dementia Test

It's that time of year for us to take our annual senior citizen test.

Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you lose it!

Below is a very private way to gauge how your memory compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty.

Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer.

OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.

1. What do you put in a toaster?

Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast' give up now and do something else..

Try not to hurt yourself.

If you said, bread, go to Question 2.

2. Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink?

Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading more appropriate literature such as Auto World.

However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3.

3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?

Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading these??? If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4.

4. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales . In London , 17 people get on the bus. In Reading , 6 people get off the bus and 9 people get on. In Swindon , 2 people get off and 4 get on. In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea , 3 people get off and 5 people get on. In Carmarthen, 6 people get off and 3 get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven ..

Without scrolling back to review, how old is the bus driver?

Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!

Don't you remember your own age?

It was YOU driving the bus!!

PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions!!

Happy Friday peeps!!!, have a good one

Morning - Thursday already!

Hi there,
A big Purple welcome to new follower Judy, hope you'll pop back from time to time.

Well, craftbubble came back and blogger seems to be behaving itself so all is right in my World!!! I FINALLY found the time to cut out my birthday grumpies (which are actually Halloween Grumpies but they were a BIRTHDAY gift - thanks your blue-ness!) so I'm planning to get down and grumpie in a bit!

Rain overnight - hubby tells me it was raining so hard at one point that it woke him up! OOOPS - missed the whole experience (thankfully), still - you just KNOW the gardeners amongst us are going to be grateful and, if it only rains at night, I'm happy too! Yep, I'm no gardener - leave that to Steve as he enjoys a good potter about in the garden!

Had another go at a kinetic card for Bah Humbug as I wasn't sure my shaker card fitted the bill . . . . although subsequent remarks indicate it seemed to fit the brief so thanks peeps. I made a spinner card this time and followed the plan, stuck it all together and left it for an hour, went back to pick up and finish the card . . . . horror or horrors . . . . the DST used to attach my spinner threads was plainly not up to STIX2 standards and the bottom thread was very slack . . . . so there was nothing for it but to pull the thread out. I TRIED re threading it using a needle - though I hadn't really thought through how to attach it FIRMLY if I'd been successful so, frankly, had to go with plan B), which was to tie a piece of organza ribbon in to a bow and heat up the glue gun . . . . and secure my spinner thread to .... the FRONT of the card!!!

Materials used:
  • C6 metallic double aperture card and envelope (QVC TSV)
  • Two bauble images (also from a QVC TSV)
  • Metallic embroidery thread (from Hobbycraft - recognise it Lilian?)
  • Gold organza ribbon tied in to a bow
  • Silver peel off
  • Glittered silver paper for the insert
  • Glue gun, Scotch Quick Dry adhesive and useless double sided tape
Hope you are all having a fab Thursday

2nd post - challenge entry! If you missed my earlier post then please scroll down

Blimey, what a palaver with blogger over the last day or so - do hope I'm not the only one else I shall feel like a major league numpty!!! To add insult to injury, this morning I lost my connection to Craftbubble - got the log in boxes and then ........ nothing! I do, however, know that I'm not alone in that so I know it's nothing I've DONE!!!!

Anyhoo, with not being able to trawl t'internet and "gossip" amongst by cyber pals I was at least able to make my newly tidied craft desk all messy once more - hurrah!

I just cannot get enough of these Clean And Simple cards so decided to have another go at this week's "BUTTERFLIES" challenge over on the Simply Less Is More blog with the card and envelope you see below . .

Materials used:
  • 5" square white card and envelope
  • Hero Arts sentiment and Inkadinkado image inked in Brilliance purple
  • Crystal stickles to highlight

Hope you like it . . . if you like butterflies you should definitely check out this blog as there have been some fabulous entries already this week.

Right - off to have another go at a kinetic Christmas card for Bah Humbug as I'm not entirely convinced my earlier entry qualified . . . .

Later peeps - hope you are all having a less technological nightmare of a day!


FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tidied my work desk recently AND I even managed to increase the amount of space I get to work in . . . . make the most of this view as it won't be this tidy again, for quite a while!

By the way - the paper roll you can see is . . .  KITCHEN ROLL!!!!

Is it just me or is everyone else having trouble with blogger too? Yesterday I couldn't upload a link (back to my blog) over on the Bah Humbug blog, with my entry for the kinetic card challenge. I kept getting bounced back to the log in boxes until I gave up. When I came to upload the above photograph (now I HAVE to be logged in to be able to be writing this post ....... right?) I get the "you must be logged in to complete this action"!!! DUH - I don't get it at all.

Happy Wednesday everyone - have a splendid day!

Tuesday, 24 May 2011

Here we are, Tuesday again ....

Hi there,

Welcome to new follower, Tricia, hope you'll find yourself visiting again soon. Thank you for your comment on my Christmas card and envelope - I DOOOOOO love those inkadinkado stamps though I have started to collect them (rather too avidly if you listen to my hubby!) in the clear format as they take up so much less room.

IN FACT, I couldn't wait to use that image again . . . . Bah Humbug's current challenge is: KINETIC CARDS, cards with movement . . . so I thought shaker card. A couple of years ago I fell for the QVC TSV which came with some double aperture cards - perfect for shaker cards. My Santa image was about a perfect fit for the aperture too! Unfortunately, blooming blogger will NOT allow me to upload to the Bah Humbug site - what IS that all about? I just keep going round and round the log in page - it's blooming annoying I can tell you . . . and what's worse is that I have NO IDEA how to fix it! Hope I can get it uploaded before the challenge expires!

Materials used:
  • Green C6 mirri card and envelope
  • Acetate
  • Foam double sided tape
  • Gold star and "Merry Christmas" confetti
  • Inkadinkado Santa inked in memento tuxedo black on to white card, colored with pro markers and die cut in to a zig zag circle.
  • Penny Black sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black directly on to the base card
  • Crystal stickles to highlight

Here's hoping you like it, you can see how many others have entered and their cards at

Got up early this morning (well, early for us) and so I found myself at the mall at Cribbs for 10:00 - did my shopping and was home again by 10:30!!! I needed to get a birthday gift for a friend. Problem is that this friend is about to move . . . . from a three bedroom house to a two bedroom bungalow so she's mindful of needing to downsize! Hmmmmm, the lady has two vacations booked this summer so I went with a sort of summer essentials kit and bought a summer shade of pink shopper/handbag and then piled in toiletries and cosmetics - not forgetting sun cream too! This way, aside from the bag, there won't be too much left at the end of the summer! Perfect? I HOPE so!

Hope you are all having a fab Tuesday . .  lovely and sunny and (thank heavens) the winds appear to have dropped here today!

Morning and welcome to Sunday morning

Morning and welcome to a lazy Sunday,

And welcoming new follower KraftyKows - hope you will be popping back some time soon.

Out to dinner last evening, with friends (one of whom recently came to join us in Florida), we tried a new restaurant (to us) in Downend, European cuisine. I tried the moussaka and hubby tried the stifado (interesting that we both chose Greek dishes when we so seldom go to a Greek restaurant!) and the fruit and nut chocolate brownie dessert was scrumptious in the extreme!! Another birthday present and this one consisted of the most fabulous purple bag, bracelet and earrings - be still my beating heart!!!

And here are two photos of gifties - Liz and Graeme's wondrous purpleness from last evening and the marvellous grumpies etc and a collage stamp - thank you everyone, I have had some LOVELY gifts.

Faith commented on my blog yesterday about the "posh" stand/easel my card was displayed on - thank you Faith, it was around £4 for IKEA - in case anyone else is interested!.

Sundays are themed challenge day over on Craft Mad & Loving It and this weeks theme is to be set by Nicola and she has chosen: "Something old something new"

Have a great Sunday, my hubby is playing Biggles all day and BBQ-ing with his pals so I have the entire day to myself to do housework .................... yeah right! Let the crafting commence! Of course, the weather is not playing nice so, knowing my luck, he'll be home well early with the excuse that "rain stopped play" but I hope not - he enjoys his hobby every bit as much as I enjoy mine - except mine's drier!!!!. Do pop back later and see if I've managed to make a something old something new entry!

  • White card candy centred on to the black flower using a dimensional foam pad
  • Kaisercraft black pearls

I've been playing with my kindle, uploaded a couple of books and am about two thirds of the way through my first one . . . . and loving it! A fellow kindle owner pointed out yesterday that, with a kindle you only need to get one hand cold in the winter!!! I shall look forward to that!

I also received two more fab cards this morning so my thanks to Marion and Karen.

Happy Saturday everyone.

Never Argue with a Woman

One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside Cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, And begins to read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.

Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'

'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')

'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.

'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.'

'Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up.'

'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault,' says the woman.

'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.

'That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.'

'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.

MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

Have a great Friday and a fabulous weekend everyone. Feel free to check back later to see if any crafting got done and to see whether any crafting goodies were received ......
