Spring Feed




Hi I hope I have managed to visit most of the blogs I follow, if I have missed you, apologies, The dreaded internet is still not fixed.I have never been so frustrated with a problem before, it took 67min and 3 depts on Wednesday for them to escalate my complaint all I wanted to know was when the team that are responsible for underground cabling would be addressing the problem, got an answer today more than 48 hrs later that they should be finished by Monday evening.I'll wait and see I'm not holding out much hope.

This fun image is from The House Mouse Triple Cd, he's obviously eaten far too much and needs rescuing. Love the Spring colours in the image, so teamed it with yellows blues and greens.

Christmas Tag







Apologies if I haven't visited over the past week our internet which can only be described as poor at best has been almost non existent since last week despite an engineer's visit, all he could say was our speed was below what he would have expected, an engineer is to call again tomorrow, despite the first one saying it was nothing wrong in the house. BT are happy to take payment and at present are not providing an adequate service.

I am way behind in my Christmas cards/tags and spent Saturday afternoon making a few.

Time for Coffee




Today's challenge at  CD Sunday was chosen by Margaret and is Tea or Coffee, . I used the Crafter's Companion Sweet Treats CD to paper piece my image then decorated with fussy cut flowers and coffee beans from Nitwit Collections. Remember to use something from a CD on your entry, pop over to the CD Sunday site to see the teams cards and perhaps get some inspiration.

Special Birthday




Good morning from a wet and dull part of Scotland, a perfect day for spending some time crafting, thank you to all those who continue to visit and leave comments, I appreciate them all.

My tag matches a card  shown here and will both be for my sister's 60th birthday this year. The image  and papers are from Ooh-la-la Yesterday's Memories.

New Baby




A relatively CAS card today for Julie's Embossing challenge at the Ooh-la-la challenge blog. The topper is from the Every Day Occassions Cd, I teamed it with an embossing folder from Doo Crafts and 2 layers of ribbon, leaving enough white space to add a baby's name . Relatively flat for posting an added bonus. Pop over to the challenge site to see my teamies cards.
