WOYWW 163 - the current mess!

WOYWW again and I thought I would share my current workspace - the dining room. My office/craftroom is being decorated and I can't wait for it to be ready and to start putting all my things back up there, and creating a relaxing working and crafting space, but in the meantime my crafting is a bit reduced as I can't find much to craft with!!

Anything Goes Challenge - Lavender and Lace

Here I am again. The novelty will wear off again soon I'm sure. It's easier at the moment as I'm camping downstairs while we decorate the attic/office so I can take photos in my 'photo place' in the kitchen quite easily and quickly. Taking photos is usually the thing I never get around to.

Anyway, Anything Goes have a new challenge this fortnight - Lavender and Lace. Here is my entry, a simple little card, which I think I'll save for my MIL as she loves flowers.

Bye for now K x

New Baby Card

I know, here again. Just having a quick break from my lunch hour spent scraping old paint from door frames!
My cousin Jilly had a lovely little girl a couple of weeks ago, called Betsy Willow. I didn't have chance to make a card before we went to see her, so I got a shop bought card in the meantime...... Now I've had a chance to make one, which makes me much happier :-)  Hope you like. Back to the doors and then back to work. K x

Scrap our Stash Challenge - Stars and Stripes

I have finally made an entry for the Scrap our Stash Challenge this month. I'm a very bad DT member :-( Groovy Deb has taken over the helm and has come up with this fun challenge.

My Stars and Stripes layout is of, Emma, on a pony ride at a fair last summer. The photo is not brilliant, it was taken on my phone, but it’s a lovely memory to share. Dan was leading her up and down, an experience for him as well as he’s not used to horses!

The papers are Bo-Bunny and I’ve raised the stars and the banners on pinflair glue to create a bit of depth around the photo. You can just make out feint stripes I think under the picture in a starburst pattern. My first layout in a long time with no flowers or butterflies on it! See, two posts in two days. A flood after the drought!
Right off to paint. Not the fun kind on paper, but on walls. Doing up the attic/spare bedroom/craft room/computer room and in a right old mess!

Hello everyone again!!

Well, after my first 'hello again' in January, I disappeared again for 7 months!! Oops!
Busy, busy, busy - there are never enough hours in the day, but I have missed visting my blogging friends and so here I am again.

Just a quickie (best not overdo it!)

I am sharing a card I made this week for my father in law's birthday. I am not good at men's cards, but I saw this in a recent magazine and thought it would be good for a chap's card. My advice here - don't attempt it! LOL! Cutting and sticking those tiny little strips of paper for the beach huts drove me round the twist!! The comments I had back were worth it though!

See you soon I hope and not in another 7 months! :-)

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year to all!!!! It's been a long time!!!, I hope you all had a lovely time with your friends and families and best wishes for a lovely 2012!

Well, it's been 3 months since I last blogged. Work has been very busy as I've changed my job and I don't know what I'm doing, lol. Home is always busy and I found I wasn't doing much me crafting, so I decided to have a wee break from blogging.

So I thought I would share my first project of 2012, a card for my Dad, whose birthday is this month. He's an old rocker (he got an air guitar for Christmas. Yes you can buy them, that's not a joke, I know they are supposed to be invisible, lol) so I thought these old stickers I have had lying around for a while would suit him perfectly!

The papers are K & Co, Sera, Sera, bling and sequin waste from stash.
It's also my lovely Mother in Law's (Wendy) 70th Birthday this month as well and I have made a Tilda card for her. I can't remember what this Tilda is called, but she's doing a lovely 'hurrah' in the air, so she's lovely for birthdays. We are off down to 'Naarfek' (Norfork to normal northerners) this weekend for some lovely celebrations. That's me back off the diet, Wendy feeds us too well! Short one today, don't want to overdo it straight away! Have a lovely week K xx
