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! :-)
