Thinking of you...


Well the glitter was still out so here's another little card

...Using up one of the many sponged, painted and splattered pieces I've created and have sitting in a box...

Glitter isn't the easiest thing to photograph huh?

I managed to get to the club class last night and had pre-prepared projects for everyone - It was noisy and very busy!
My appointent for the clinic was a painful one... Anyone who has ever had to endure their muscles pummelled will understand. Lol! The muscles are compressing the nerves in my leg but I'm hopefull 
that things will improve. Thanks so much for your kind thoughts and wishes, it means a lot.

Well, on with the exercises... 

Have a great day!

This, That and Felicity's Birthday

Hello there...

A special little girl celebrates her first birthday shortly... My DH's Granddaughter Felicity
I can't believe how fast the time has gone!

Her parents are having a little party for her on Sunday in Derbyshire and though we have been invited,  I am unable to travel and DH refuses to go without me so we'll catch up with them another time.... Between you and me I'm happy I'm not going - It was Grandparents Day here a week ago and once again my hubby didn't get a single card from any of his 4 grandchildren... I know it hurts him and it makes me so mad!

Anyway, here's the card I've made for Felicity

Ink blending, stamping, masking and lots of glitter...

I cut out her name using the Cameo and stamped the polar bear (Yeah, I know he's a Christmas bear but I like him) before I removed the letters then put some double sided tape on the back and individually glittered each letter... I also used a die to cut out the balloons and glittered them too...Heck I'll be cleaning up glitter for the next few weeks! 

The little butterfly was from anther stamp set I got online - I love to mix and match

On another note, I went to my back appointment on Friday and had some acupuncture and manipulation which 'popped' something in my back and at least relieved the pain in my groin... I felt much better though it was still painful to sit ... Then when I woke on Saturday I was in so much pain down my leg I wanted to scream. DH was beside himself because nothing relieved the pain all day and night... Thankfully it has subsided to allow me less discomfort. I am due back there tomorrow for neurology testing and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that on Thursday I won't be screaming. I know it's going to be a long process but if it works and I can be 'normal' again after 9 months of struggling, well it will be worth it.

Finally I just want to thank the team at AAA Cards for awarding my card 1st place in their Autumn Colours challenge... That was something to smile about!

Ok... I have to move now so I'll wish you all a lovely day/evening

Take care

Another Birthday

Hello there...

It's Pat's birthday today and unfortunately I didn't get to spend time with her as I had planned on Wednesday ... I just wasn't well enough.
I'm feeling better but still struggling with a nerve trapped in my groin, so this afternoon I have an appointment with someone who maybe able to help me... Fingers crossed.
Pat did come by yesterday evening to check on me and to collect her card and gifts so I can share her card today and one of the gifts I gave her...

Another die that I hadn't used was this dragonfly frame... It's a bit of a 'busy' card for me but my excuse is that I haven't been feeling well and my mojo took a hit Lol!

I also made her a little teddy too... 

After all, she's followed my journey in this hobby 

I know she will love this, she already has a bunny I made...

That's it for now... Have a lovely day

Snuggle Buddy

Hello there...

I thought I'd just share the little snuggle buddy I made for my friend who is recovering from a mini stroke

He's all dressed for bed and looking forward to his new home ...

I hope she likes him ... We are never too old to enjoy a teddy bear.

That's all I have for now... I'm not feeling so good but Pat is coming over and she's bound to make me feel better...

Have a great day

NBUS Challenge

Hello there ...

A quick post today with a card I'm entering in the NBUS challenge over on the lovely Darnell's blog...

In the midst of all the goings on last week I had a text to say that one of my girlfriends had suffered a mini stroke... I'm making a little crocheted teddy to send to her with the card I am sharing today

I've acummulated a few new dies and stencils that I haven't yet used so I opened a couple to make this card
The die is from The Works and the flower stencil I bought from an online store

I kept with bright and cheerful colours for my flowers and smooshed the die cut leaves in versamark then heat embossed them - I also die cut the leaves in foam and glued them together - not only to give it dimension but it makes it a little stronger for posting. 

Before I go I just want to say a big thank you to the ladies at CAS Watercolour Challenge for my award this week ... As we say in Liverpool "I'm chuffed!"

Have yourselves a lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by my blog today

Autumnal Colours

Hello... It's good to be back

My Aunt arrived last Friday (finally) and left yesterday... She looked amazing and was just her old self, not quite what I expected really considering her recent health issues but she was as fiesty as ever and somehow still defying the ageing process
 We viewed a number of properties whilst she was here with the view to her moving nearer the family, but suffice to say nothing pleased her and I can't see anything changing in the future... 'Nuff said.

 I have a little card to share that I made last week whilst I was with Pat... I'm squeezing into the challenge at AAA Cards before it closes...

I smooshed cardstock with various distress inks and then die cut the leaves... then I did some dry embossing with the same die over the leaves

The Eiffel tower die was cut both in CS and in foam to give it dimension and then I applied Versamark all over the die cut and embossed it with a mix of silver and gold embossing powders.

The sentiment was stamped and embossed to match... 

I just love the colours of Autumn... I desperately try to hold on to our brief summers here in the UK but the golds, reds and yellows of Autumn are a beautiful distraction from the inevitable winter weather that seems to last forever and sneaks in unannounced, so quickly.
Did I tell you that our hedgehogs have been visiting regularly every evening? We feed them and it's good to see them so plump before they hibernate and boy can they run!

Have a beautiful day and I'll catch you soon
