Thank you for stopping by...
I am a newbie at blogging but have been crafting for many years. I used to have a market stall in a nearby town and I just loved meeting fellow crafters and exchanging hints and tips. I hope maybe you will get some new ideas here or you can leave comments and links so I will be picking up new ideas from you. Anyway I will put on the virtual kettle and have some virtual cupcakes at the ready...

Well..it seems as though it took forever for the family to adjust to the loss of Colin's brother and father, I'm afraid everything went on the back burner for several months but now Colin is back playing bowls and I am back blogging. I am just putting the finishing touches to my DT card for the Forever Friends challenge blog and of course to update my sidebar with all the details. Everything will be ready tomorrow (Tuesday) Thank you for your patience.

We are keeping busy at the moment to help cope with Colin's loss. Both his brother and his father died within just a couple of weeks and I do thank those who knew for your kind words. I apologise to the rest of the design team on Forever Friends challenge blog and to Chris on her blog as I haven't been able to keep up with my commitments but by the end of the week I hope to catch up with you all.

Todays Knight is a digi from Christine it is certainly a very useful one to have in your collection when you get tired of the same old 'male' images. Printed onto watercolour cardstock coloured with promarkers, backing paper from m.c.s., swirl made with my cuttlebug and charm from stash.
I do hope you have better weather than we have here and manage to keep warm this week.

At last I can tell....I am now a member of the design team at the Forever Friends challenge blog!!!! We were told a few days ago but had to wait until today to post it on our blogs. I am so chuffed about this and looking forward to using the cute images. I was bursting to tell this news but will post more later today.

This lovely Spring image is a digi by Christine printed onto watercolour paper coloured with promarkers with a free digi frame from cuddlybuddly. The branches are made with my cricut and the flowers are of course from wild orchid crafts. The cardstock is from my stash...one of those wonderful 12 x 12 pads. Christine is on a roll with these lovely images, well worth a look. I hope you have a peaceful evening and I just know tomorrow is going to be a good day...the shopping is delivered around mid-day so rockbuns for tea!

Anyway back to this lovely digi from Christine printed onto watercolour paper, coloured with promarkers. The dragonfly was in amongst my birthday pressies from Lisa, flowers from wild orchid crafts and ribbon from stash. The Martha Stewart border/corner punch is amazing! It is my first punch from MS, Colin bought it for me from Hobbycraft...I guess his retirement isn't going to be too hard after all. I do hope you have a very nice Wednesday, I'm off to see if the carrots can be saved.

Colin 'I was going to take you out to lunch but it might be a bit late'
Me 'That's ok, maybe get a chinese or fish and chips tonight'
Colin'I will have to see what I feel like, meaning said chinese or fish and chips'
Me 'ARRGGGGHHH!!! Is it me??? men!
This weeks lovely image from Christine very easy to colour so I've made a couple of cards in different shades. The pansy's are printed onto watercolour paper, coloured with promarkers. Butterflies made with a Martha Stewart punch and swirls and ladybird made with my cricut. Tied tape from stash and the greeting and frame from my craft studio.
I hope you have a really nice day today, the sun is out already here in Norfolk so I hope it is good warm'ish weather for you too. I have entered this into the challenge at

Anyway, back to today's card. This is one of my favourite digi's from The Paper Shelter. She is so easy to colour and I do think my shading is getting better, I know I have a long way to go yet but there has been some improvement! She has been printed onto watercolour paper coloured with promarkers...there is a link on my sidebar. Layered onto mirriboard and then onto Henbury Lane papers (I think) Swirls from my cricut and flowers from wild orchid crafts. I hope you have a very good weekend, I'm off to join in the docrafts bloghop, I hope to see you there.
