Happy 18th

This lovely digi is from Karen at Cuddly Buddly printed on watercolour card and coloured with promarkers. The layering with my cuttlebug and the fantastic swirls with my cricut. I made the box with matching cardstock also with cricut swirls (really love them!) The flowers from wild orchid craft, the ribbon and papers from stash.
It was a beautiful day here Thursday and Friday so I was out in our garden. I made a start on our veg patch which was so weedy. I must admit I sat on the ground listening to the birds, it was so peaceful, I didn't get very much gardening done but I made up for it yesterday. Colin cut back the hedge and I weeded round my bulbs. I think the ground was warming up, I did pay for it later and almost dozed through Friday evening. Today is looking like another fine one. We are off round to see Jasmine our grand daughter...she had her third birthday during the week so we can play with playdoh to our hearts content. Hope you have a good weekend.

I love my cricut

I know that photo's of white on white don't turn out very well but I think Colin has gone a grand job here! Anyway, I was playing with my cricut, as you do, and I have produced something I am really very pleased with. The card stock was left over from Kanban or Hunkydory (sorry can't remember which) and every swirl, sentiment and everything which isn't wild orchid crafts has been made with the cricut, some of the hearts and flowers I painted with white acrylic paint and added crackle glaze.. It was quite a pleasing way to spend a bit of time just playing with layouts and deciding not to use any glitter, which for me wasn't easy. I have been inspired by which is on the left sidebar. After gazing at her blog and some of the keepsakes she has made I felt I really wanted to try this...I hope it is not considered copying, if it is then I will just keep this for myself, if it isn't copying then woohoo I'm going to have fun!.
I have entered this in the Wild Orchid Challenge, I hope I have done this correctly, any hints and tips would be very welcome.

Thinking of you...

I love this's a digi from cuddly buddly printed on water colour paper, coloured with promarkers. Backing paper from stash, sentiment from m.c.s., flowers and leaves from w.o.c. and the swirl and bee from my lovely cricut - home decor cartridge.
I also was a busy bee yesterday. Apart from shopping of the boring kind  I am re-purpled, I visited the local hairdresser and had a very nice couple of hours with enough chat and hot chocolate to unwind ready to face the ironing. Hmmm...didn't work so I will face the ironing today perhaps with Haven on tv. I had finished a commissioned card for the hairdresser but would you believe it...I made a Diamond Anniversary instead of a Silver, oh well...that will go into stock and the Silver one will be finished hopefully later today. Good job she has a sense of humour. I woke up this morning with my hair all over the place but my fringe is looking pretty good! The garden is still covered with snow so I have Colin at home with me...lovely, means I get cups of tea made (I just cannot make tea that's drinkable)   I hope you all manage to keep warm, sue x

Eliza's daisy chain

Another Cuddly Buddly digi, printed on watercolour paper, coloured with promarkers-glossy accents on the shoes. Greeting from m.c.s. cut with my cuttlebug, swirl made with my cricut, flowers from w.o.c. I think the backing paper is Henbury Lane and ribbon from stash. I have some orders to complete so I am up n' at 'em early today, I think if I show willing with the housework then I can curl up with the promarkers, with Haven on the telly, hot chocolate by my side, cuddly blanket on my lap then I can shut out this frosty day and just play. I was quite good yesterday and even made rock buns (yes, Lexie...those rock buns) they were quite nice, I hadn't made any for ages so they made a nice change from cupcakes. My knees are recovering from last weeks tumble, luckily I have built in airbags...ok so I need to lose a lot of weight but the bit extra does come in handy when I am ambushed by the grandchildren! I hope you all manage to keep warm in this frosty weather.
