Problems with Blogger

I have had terrible problems over the weekend trying to post my pictures it was a nightmare it just would show the picture on my posting. but I tried today and it worked - so I have no idea what was wrong. Did anyone else have a problem?

Here is the Easter card I made earlier. I love this stamp from Penny Black the rabbits are so cute i coloured them in using copic pens, I used my new nesties to cut the circles, my new Tim Holtz Mini Rosette got it first outing and the greeting is an Art Impressions stamp.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-

Gingerloft Challenge - Diecuts and Punches

Card Making Mamas - Animals

The Stampman - Anything Tim

Some Odd Girl - Pleat something

Last week - Where did it go?

I'm sorry I lost last week - if anybody finds it can they let me know:-)lol

Last week was not a good week Baz was poorly - a combination of his treatment and a bout of bronchitis really knocked him for six and he was off work all week, (not like him at all). As a result between working and playing nursey I haven't had a lot of spare time. Things are looking up and he is feeling a lot better although he is still coughing - for a non-smoker he sounds like he's on 60 a day and it looks like I might get a little time in my craft room this week-end.

Last weekend I had a splendid day at Skipton with the wonderful Jill at the Stampman it was a fairly small class but we had a lot of fun and everybody got on really well. We made a canvas board and lots of different squares using various techniques - gesso, acrylic paints, stamping, meltpot, die cutting and generally had a great day getting all inky (although I was very organised and took a pair of latex gloves with me - I looked like I was off into the operating theatre)mine is all turquoise and brown with splashes of gold and black. We had a lot to fit in and I didn't have time to apply all my embellishments to the canvas and had to bring it home to complete later and as of yet I still haven't! As soon as do it I will post it here - hopefully in the not too distant future!

I have a little card to post which I made a couple of weeks ago and never got around to posting I apologise for the picture it looks like I used cream card but It was snow white! I really must get a new camera.. I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-

The Stampman - Floral/Mothers Day
Wags'n Whiskers - Spring Creations
Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - Going Green
The Creative Cottage Challenge - Spring has Sprung

Does Your Cat Have Staff?

It's the question I ask myself as I open another tin of cat food for Max the cat! Why does he always come first when everyone needs feeding? I think it is the fact that he is always pleased to see me no matter what time of the day I greet him, he always replies with his deep throaty purr. He always announces his arrival into a room with a little mew that develops into his wonderful purring, he's always happy to see you.

As you can tell Max the cat rules our roost and I wouldn't swap him for anything. I found a wonderful set of stamps with some black cats on when I was at Cardcraft Plus on their demonstration day a couple of weeks ago and couldn't resist them. Here is a couple of ATCs I made today while playing about in the craft room.

They are just the cutest stamps and I can see they will be great at Halloween.


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend - it was beautiful and sunny up here in N Lancs and it was so good to see the sunshine - a reminder of things to come. Roll on summer.

Bye for now

Wings & Things

I'm sorry I didn't get chance to post these ATCs over the weekend - I really don't know what happens to the time it just flies. I spent a happy hour or two on Saturday messing about in my craft room and and an unhappy hour or two in Asda doing the weekly shop. As I get older I find I shopping such a chore - once upon a time I could have shopped for England but I wish I had a shopping fairy that does it all for me. In my dreams or perhaps I could train Bazzer for the job. Ha Ha Ha ROFL

I would like to enter these ATCs into the The Stampsmith Challenge Something New as I used my New Tim Holtz mSini stamps to create them. I also would like to enter into the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge Silhouettes. Enjoy my ATCs. See you later.
