overdone the trifle

well any amount of weight i lost this year has been made null and void by the copious amounts I have eaten over the last few days - mainly trifle. I have eaten my body weight in coffee creams - roll on jan when i shall return to slimming world with a brown bag of shame over my head.
Hope everyone had a lovely christmas - i had some lovely hand-made cards from my crafty friends. I have just made a simple card today for my sister who spent christmas day in hospital - she seems to be on the mend now.
I can enter it in to 2 challenges;
totallygorjuss. - easily does it
mosdigitalchallenge - fave mo card made this year [i added this because as soon as i use a mo image - it becomes my favourite - this was one of the first images i bought and I use it so much.

Back to work tomorrow if I can find anything that fits...

happy snowman

love this digi image by mo manning - easy to colour but looks effective. I learnt the background technique from Lyndsey. Its a good way to use up scraps and peel-offs. Made a few cards last night - but its no good I have to face up to putting away crafting stuff and get the tree from the loft - tho I swear blind it only went back up there last month - where has 2012 gone!!
Will enter this card in the following challenges

fairy christmas

I have been asked to make a  chrimbo card for a  friends fiancĂ©e.I ihave used a lovely Mo manning image. It's an easel card and I have used some glossy accents to make the Snow Globe stand out and I have used traditional christmassy colours and stickled the holly and flowers to make them sparkle.I have used my new memory box holly die-cut tho it's hard to see!!! I am hopefully going to finish off my own Christmas Cards tonight - so pyjamas call and I shall be sitting in front of the fire - promarkers at hand!!

Thank You Card

I have been asked to make a Thank You card for  our tutor. I have been on a Sign Language Course - really good fun. I passed my BSL over 10 years and not alot of it has stayed with me - its been great trying to learn a bit more. The course finishes a bit before Christmas and we are going to 'sign' Silent Night at the carol concert. I may be signing the first verse three times over and hope no-one realises!!
   The card is quite big - 8x8 and  is using a lovely Mo Manning image and I have been raiding my stash for flowers and gems - it does look better than the photo - I know I always say that[my photography is worse than my signing!!]
I will enter it in to the following challenges

Something Simple

Its been yonks since i put anything on here - not been feeling 100%. I seem to pick up any infection going - i sound as if I am on 50 cigarettes a day - not bad for a non-smoker. Off work at the moment- just feel so dreadful but I thought i would try and post today. This is a very simple card I made a few days ago when I had a semblance of energy. I did go to the craft show and still have to unpack some of it - just need some oooomph,
This was a very simple card. I can enter it in the following challemge

dreaded peel-offs!!!

Been having a sort out and found a box of peel-offs when i first started crafting - i thought they were the beesknees - perhaps use a border bit now and again but thats it - then i found some black ones i have a feeling that they are supposed to go on glass but who knows[or cares] - also found some stamps i had forgotten about - with lovely quotes so i am making a pack of notelets up and here is the first - it also fits wonderfully into the following challenge
joannasheenchallenge - silhouettes

Now i have had a sort out - I am full of ideas so i may even post more than once this week..if only i did not have to go work 


A quick birthday card for my friend - we have been friends since we were at school together - our children are way older than we were when we first met. We bonded over our love of books, chocolate and stripy socks - it was the bay city roller era!!

Lost the Plot

I definitely need to find the plot again It seems ages since I put anything on here - spent more time sorting [and buying] than making anything but I am determined to get some cards made this weekend.There is a craft fair at the local fruit farm on Sunday and that might inspire me.
The only thing I have made this week is an altered book. I met my lovely friend Wynn online on a cancer support site - we were both diagnosed the same week and went through the same treatment - we meet once or twice a year in Birmingham and spend ages drinking coffee and chatting up - I am truly blessed to have her in my life - here's the book I made her.

Today I have been on the Breast Cancer Stall in town - people can be very generous and it was quite moving how many people donated and told me about their involvement with cancer. When I look back I realise my life may not have taken the path I thought it would but it has taken a detour and I have been blessed along the way by the wonderful people I have met - in fact I would never have had  a blog as its only because I had time on my hands during chemo that I first bought a craft magazine as something to do - millions of pounds of crafting stuff later - I am still here XXX

Sympathy Card

Had a busy weekend - went with John and his 2 brothers and 3 sisters[plus partners] to St Ives. We went to scatter their mom and dads ashes - it was a lovely weekend in a way - more laughter than tears and lots of old and new memories.
The card is for my friend whose dad sadly died this week - I remember reading this poem once and thought it was so poignant that I kept it in a file where I put quotes and sentiments that I like.

Tilda loves flowers

 I think thats what this stamp is called - its one of my favourite magnolias as the flowers are so pretty to colour and she hasn't got wings like the older tildas. Really struggling at the moment to get some oomph - probably because its getting darker and I seem to have been asleep when we had this years summer. Got so many ideas for cards but I just stroke the paper and then do nothing!!! I have just googled tilda cards and looked through other blogs but rather than inspire me - it has depressed me - the others are amazing - I would love to know where all the fab papers are from and I really think copics are amazing but I really can't start again as I have got that many promarkers!!!
Anyway this card is for the following challenges
justmagnolia. - pearls and diecuts   [diecut the scallop circle/punched the leaf and there are lots of little pearls on the flowers]
 totallygorjuss - punches/dies

Pots of Love

It is a little known fact that the 'Guns of Navarone', 'Von Ryan's Express' or 'Zulu' are on the television every Saturday night - well thats what it seems like in this house - I am banished to the coffee table as John watches one of them cos it must be at least...7 days since he last saw them!!! Oh well, gives me time to make a card.

Thank You

I should be saying thank you to all the lovely people who made cakes and dropped coins in the MacMillan box . I did the biggest coffee morning in the world today at work - people were so generous with their time and money. The cakes on display were amazing and it was lovely because as there was a Governors meeting on - we had an extended lunch hour - so even longer to sit, chat and eat. I made a batch of cards that I sold earlier so the money from those will go to MacMillan -.
Macmillan were so wonderful when my dad was ill and they were there when I needed them through my treatment.

Sunflower Tilda

I was asked to make a card for a thirtieth birthday - had to have Dr Su on it!! and all I knew was that this person liked sunflowers. Thankfully I found this tilda stamp in my stash. It is to go in a box. I use a lot of that scrim stuff that plasterers use - not quite sure what for!!! I don't do DIY but it's really cheap for a roll in B&Q.
Pleased with how it turned out but it has not photograped as good as it looks - more sparkly and fresh than it appears.

It was great to colour - used Stampin Up papers as they seemed to suit it so well.
I will enter it in the following challenges:-

One day out on a golf course, a group of golfers notice a funeral passing by on a road adjacent to the golf course. Alf says to the others "Why don't we pause a minute ans show some respect for the dead" So they remove their golf caps and stand in silence as the hearse passes by. Finally George says "There were a lot of cars. That person must have been well loved" Alf replies "She sure was, It would have been our 30th wedding anniversary tomorrow!!"

I love sketch challenges - as everyone comes up with so many different ideas. I am gradually working my way through my paper stacks - I have a real weakness for paper - do you think there is a paper equivalent of  Alcoholics name is margrit and I am addicted to paperpacks.....the good thing is that if I used one sheet a day - I would have to live to about 1000 to finish it - but then I am always buying more. My Phillip is off to the States in a few days and I have already given him my orders!!

Sister Act

I love this Mo Manning image - it always makes me smile - I think of the choir led by Whoopi Goldberg and all the singing!! My friend Wynn was taught by nuns and she always thought they had roller skates underneath because of the way they glided!! I jut thought it would be funny to give them bright coloured socks!!

On the back I got a bit of memento ink on it but  have used a stamp that someone loaned me along time ago -[ must try and find if it is still available!!],,,,,"This card is hand-crafted, any smudges, splodges or spillages are intentional and are designed to enhance the artistic quality of the finished piece!"

quick card

very simple thank you card - i had one eye on the Paralympics as i was making it - Alex is one of the volunteers - he will be working mainly with the wheelchair basketball events.
I have used pan pastels to distress - a lot smoother than chalks.
Need to get my oomph back  - it would help if i tidied up all my crafty stuff - but that's an Olympian task in itself!!!

Don't make many of these!!!

A lovely lady called Irene at the Breast Cancer group I go to is celebrating her wedding Anniversary next week - her platinum - 70 years of marriage - how wonderful is that.

I had a lovely day with my friend Diane [get a blog] who helped me so much in making this card - feel a bit guilty getting any credit for it - she had made one the same as a Ruby Wedding Card and it was simply stunning!![get a blog, Diane]

The heart is an indigo blue stamp embossed in silver. Wild orchild flowers .

Not been into crafting much this week - had a week off and was so full of good intentions - but the lure of the settee and re-runs of Law &Order - SVU proved too much!!
I shall enter the card in the following challenges
disdigidesignschallenge - anniversary

Okay thats it - hopefully I will get my cardmaking ooomph back but in the meantime GET A BLOG, DIANE!!!!

It was years since we went to a wedding and now we have three!! One last week which was our nephews - wonderful wonderful day.

Been really shattered this week and have not really done anything crafty but I have a week off work soon and I can't wait to have a bit of 'me' time .

focus on the ribbon

I love this freebie image from saturated canary - i decided to make it into a book for the raffle tonight - my breast cancer support group - if i say it myself everyone wanted to win it and i have promised to make more to sell for funds rather than make as raffle prizes......need to get that martha stewart heart punch [unless anyone can cut me a few out - hint hint!!]
i will enter it into the following challenge
toptiptuesday - focus on the ribbon
i think focus on the ribbon is a cool title for this as thats what people do focus on the breast cancer ribbon - but i also used  stampin up ruffle ribbon as well as loads on the spine.

I love this image - Mo Manning - if you could not guess.

Liz's Birthday

It's my sisters birthday later this month - she doesn't look on here so its ok to post!! A bit different from an ordinary easel card - this is not the first attempt - for some reason when I first assembld it - the picture was on upside down and backwards not the effect I was looking for!! Liz is not a pastelly pink sort of girl hence the brighter colours.
 Well, its a wet weekend in Wolverhampton [alliteration - see that English  A Level did not go to waste!!]
Hopefully after a schlep round the city centre I shall be posting more cards later.

Get Well

Time for a simple card - no flowers or lots of bling and lace. I like this LOTV stamp as its not so hard to colour - some of their christmas ones had so much detail - drove me to tears!!
Been having a blog hop today and I know it inspire you but it also depresses me - when I see the way some cards are coloured and arranged I think I am so primary school in comparison - oh well we all start somewhere. I love copics but being as I have lots and lots and lots of promarkers - I shan't go there!!!
Anyway this card is for the following challenge
