Painter Man

Morning all, it's a wee bit chilly here this morning but the sun's out so hopefully will warm up soon, got a few bits to do today so this one's short and sweet. I treated myself to some new stamps last week and have had fun colouring some of them up, my card today is using one of them and I just couldn't wait to show it off.

I promised some candy a couple of weeks ago and I've just about got that sorted out so keep your eyes open for that coming up! Also another scheduled post for tomorrow when I can at last share a wee bit of news with you!

Have a great day xx

Habit Forming!

Hi again everyone! It's one of them bus scenarios here.....I don't post for ages then 3 come along in a week lol.  I've decided that I'm definately going to post more regularly on here.  Life has a habit of catching up but hopefully if I can get into some sort of routine I can keep going!. 

So watcha all up to this week?  I've been busy making cards for a 65th birthday for some friends,  I'll be seeing that number in my sleep for weeks! 

Found this card in my collection that didn't get posted when it was made.  It was done for a friends daughter.  Love this image and think the bright colours really suit it.Think it went down well!  I'm afraid the recipe is lacking for this one,  I know it was Nitwits DP but can't remember what collection and most of the other items were from my stash.  The image is a Bestie and she's toooo cute!

Dreaming Of Summer Days

Morning all.  A tad chilly here today, think that's the start of the cooler weather coming in, soon be time for the heating and the duvets on the bed again.  At least the rain we were forecast over the weekend didn't materialise so was able to get out and about yesterday.  We had a trip through to Skirlington for a look around the market and then on to Hornsea Freeport to pick up some waterproof's for Hubby when he's biking too and from work.  Managed to get what we went for too so that was a bonus!

My card today was done for a birthday, I seem to have had a lot to do lately, and have actually missed a couple because I've been so busy, but this one went down well so who am I to complain lol.

Better go get some work done, enjoy your day whatever you're up to! xx

Mellow Yellow

Afternoon all.

Had a lovely relaxing day today, got some images coloured and a couple of card layouts sorted out.  A bit more relaxed than yesterday, BIL needed a card for Sis's birthday.....TODAY!  lol.  Luckily there was a fab sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp that I was able to use and I whipped out the Wellington CD for a cute image.  Considering it was a last minute card it worked out rather well, even though I say so myself! lol.

Off to the cinema tonight for a double helping, thank goodness for Unlimited Cards.  See you all again soon xx
