Being productive

Good morning my dears,

Let me just polish my halo here... Determined not to be caught out in December with only two Christmas cards made this year, I've been a little busy...

(It looks like the flash was a little too bright and washed out the colours a little. Apologies, I did not notice until I posted!)

Which brings my current total up to 10! Still nowhere close to enough yet, but getting there at least, lol.

Have a busy day ahead, so going to dash.

Have a fantastic one people!

DecoArt funtime over at Crafters' Palette!

Morning all,

We're showcasing decoArte products over at Creafters' Palette at the moment, and I made a card using their scrumptious crackle paste (I am soooo in love with that stuff!)

There's more pictures and info up on the blog if you want to take a peek!

Hope you're all having a fantabulous Tuesday!

Mid-month tutorial - Rhedd's Creative spirit

Hi all,

Back again to let you all know that my tutorial for this canvas is live on the Rhedd's Creative Spirit blog now.

And now off to work I go...

Have a great day all,


Spots and/or stripes - Sweet Stampin'

Good morning bloggaroos, it's Saturday again, which of course means a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'. The theme is spots and/or stripes.

I wish I could enter myself this week, as we're being sponsored by Lili of the Valley!

I dug out a LOTV Christmas stamp, and decided to use both spots and stripes...

He's such a cutie, isn't he?

I hope you'll come and play with us, and don't forget to go see what my fellow sweeties have done if you'd like some more inspiration!

Have a most fantabulous day!

Postal service update...

Hi all,

No card from me right now, but I just wanted to swing by with an update on the postal situation in my parents' village. Some of you may remember that a few months ago, I posted a plea for signatures on a petition, as the Royal mail closed the Ballater sorting office and posties were forced to sort the mail out in the open in a public car park.

Many thanks to all of you that signed the petition. Several petitions (there's a lot of elderly folk in Ballater who aren't online, so there was even a paper one, lol) were taken to the local councillors, and they took action and had stern words with the royal mail. The posties now once again have a roof over their heads while sorting the mail! They have access to facilities, the location in far more secure than the car park, and the letters/cards and parcels are no longer getting soaked.

Thank you all. I (and the residents of Ballater) really appreciate your help!

Have a fantabulous day!

Hi all,

There's a few pink themed challenges around at the moment, so I was inspired to make a little something so I could play along...

Instead of a stamp, I used an image from one of the old LOTV art pads. It kinda feels like cheating, but it certainly makes it a quick and easy make compared to colouring!
I also used LOTV papers.

I'd like to play along with:

Live and Love Crafts - Traditional pink
In the Pink - Flower Power
The Ribbon girl - October card challenge

Have an excellent evening all.

Heart-shaped mini book - Crafters' Palette

Hi all,

Just popping by to share my latest make for Crafters' Palette.

I spent a little time playing with the absolutely gorgeous Prima Rosibelle collection, and made a heart-shaped mini book.

More pictures and info over on the blog!

And now I must be off up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire, before I drop into a coma at my keyboard, lol.

Sweet dreams Bloggers.
