Anniversary Fun....


Just loved this stamp from Crafty Individuals called 'Waiting for their next Adventure'...I do like to make fun anniversary cards and thought this stamp was ideal.
I've used SU Horizon DSP paper, stamped the trees, birds and die cut the grass from SU On the Horizon stamp set.

Its very muggy today and they do threaten thunderstorms....we do need something just to clear the air.
Thanks for stopping by

Noof & friends...



Monday I had a play with some of my Lavinia stamps...Noof, Tilly & Tango.
Noof is quite a large stamp and I ended up putting him on a 7 x 7 card.....
The background is one of Lavinia pre printed ones.... I coloured Noof with pencils..   I just love the expression on Noof's face and he looks like he's enjoying being stroked by Tilly & Tango...

Time to have a tidy up my desk...I just hate working in a small confined space...

Have a good day whatever you are up to

Cheese & wine....

Hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday weekend...we've lots going off in our village....
We've also got a Wine Circle club in the village and any cards I make with wine on sells very quickly when I do my craft fair.... This image I found in my image box and it actually a napkin...mounted onto card covered and  with modge podge....you get a lovely textures using Napkins on anything...glass, wood pottery etc....you just need to strip away the layers and just use the top layer.

Thought you might like to see what our Parish council have done on our small village  green to celebrate the 70th Jubilee.....

This is a little place where we can sit and chat 


Well done East Coker..

Lots going off  on our Recreation ground today, tomorrow and Sunday..... fingers crossed the Sunday picnic can go ahead....

thanks for passing by......Anne

I have returned.......Gardeners shed...


It' been a few weeks since my last post.....hubby and I had manged to stay clear of the dreaded Covid for over two years and then wallop! 
I spent 3 days in bed and was quite poorly but hubby wasn't too bad..   Kept testing and eventually after 12 days we were negative.... 
Luckily we had booked a few days holiday on the south coast and thankfully we were able to go.   We were so lucky with the weather wall to wall sunshine...Lots of walking along the prom, caught up with family but generally just chilled out..  Like most people who have had Covid we've both felt very tired.....

Anyway back to my card...it's my brothers birthday on Tuesday and I made him a similar card as both he and his wife love gardening and he loves his shed.  I've got several garden related dies so have combined  some to produce my card..  Like a lot of us I always cut too many bits out so have used some of the  'leftovers' to make another card....left a sentiment off for the time being..

What a beautiful day today...we've had our grandson and partner over for lunch which was lovely and spent some time afterwards sat in the garden in the sunshine...

Hopefully I will catch up with your blogs sometime this week...

Thanks for stopping by

Gardeners card....

Our neighbour went in to hospital for a knee replacement this morning, he's a keen gardener so made him this card. I've used a recycled image as he oftern sits with his white hat on in his garden chair.
He's hopefully coming home tomorrow.

Its a beautiful day today here in Somerset but not sure if it will last over the weekend...

Fishing trip anyone.?

Just trying to make a few male cards, you know those 'difficult' ones!

This image is from Delicious Doodles...I've made a few of these cards in the past and they have been very popular...just added a couple of embellishments...

The weather for the moment is still holding out just hope it stays that way for the weekend when we are looking after our grandchildren.

Take care

Thinking of You.....

Hello....sorry for the long gap inbetween posts but its been a stressful 3 weeks or so.  I had another fall which has meant going to A&E 3 times a week to have a wound dressed...the injury is on my right arm so that hasn't been easy and its been painful....yes I know I should take more water with it!   
Then I broke a tooth and spent two days visiting the dentist....

   We've also after 40 years given up caravanning.....I know its the right time to stop as we're both getting older, my hubby suffers from arthitis and things take a lot longer to do and its painful... its been a brilliant 40years we've visited different countries and also seen lots of England which we probably wouldn't have seen had we not had our caravan....anyway a new chapter starts...

 I have managed to put a card together for a friend who's not well....I've  kept the Spring colours as the little PB hedgie is holding a daffodil....

Hopefully over Easter I might get some cards made, although there's lots of things to do in the garden...

Hope you all have a lovely Easter and hope that at least the weather will be dry.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by
