Christmas Bells for Friday Oldie!

Hello Everyone, my goodness another Friday, whizzing by this week has without a doubt.

I'm running out of oldies and in danger of showing almost newies, but I've found this little charming card.

I think the image is by Just Inkedline Digital stamps, coloured with Promarkers. First Edition paper, not too sure what die this is it may be a Tonic one, and looking at it it's rather lovely so I must look it out.

Now why not join Erika of Snappy Crafts and share one of your older projects, it doesn't have to be cards, just as long as it's hand made and most of all it's just for fun. There are quite a few for us posting our older makes so please join in, it's good to see how our styles have changed over time.

Just a short post and one that I'm scheduling for tomorrow(Friday), so I will love you and leave you and see you all soon, take care,

Seahorse Canvas!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well and having a good day. 
I've been trying to find time to post all day but kept getting sidetracked, finally I'm here, really don't know where the time goes.

Thank you all so much for your visits and the lovely comments you left on my CCC cards, I'm so pleased you liked them.

It's going to be a short post tonight, not much happening in the Currie household, living quietly and managing to get a few cards made. However my share tonight is yet another canvas, which is my third one and all three will be going on my wall;
Using a fabulous Seahorse stencil from Imagination Crafts, I then coloured it up with Starlights paint. The canvas itself is painted with a mixture of Pebeo Dyna paints and Starlights paint, a few sequins and that's that.

Now, I'm really quite pleased  with it as I'm still a learner with canvas, stencils and Starlights, but I now have a trio of sea themed canvases that will adorn my bedroom wall. I would prefer them to be in the bathroom, but the folk who had the house before us decided to completely tile the bathroom, not something I would do myself, but as it's a big job to change it, I just live with it.

So that's me for now, take care and see you soon,

Sentiments for the CCC!

Hello Everyone, hoping you are all well and having a good weekend. We are having a quiet one, well at least I am, just a bit of chilling and crafting....well knitting really, I've been trying to get a Snowman scarf finished, now I just have to put fringes on it, never done that before, so over o You Tube I'll be going.

Well our wonderful sunny warm weather has finally gone, today it has rained all day, felt strange to have the rain today as it's been so long, I think tomorrow is to be much the same, not good for the washing.

Anyway, time again for the Christmas Card Club ladies to show their creations with the theme chosen by our Carol and it's Sentiment as Focus. A super challenge so thanks for that Carol, here is what I've come up with;
Fabulous Woodware stamp, mind you you'd have to have friends with a sense of humour to send this one.
This is a lovely Crafty Individuals stamp and I've embossed it with WOW Gold EP, I think the paper is Dovecraft, and a lovely piece of ribbon that was in the pack that I'd won from Wendy Spanish Crafter. The little robin die is fro, Die'sire
I have to say I'm chuffed with how this one turned out, Woodware stamp again embossed in white WOW powder and coloured with SN Colourblend pencils. Sue Wilson's beautiful poinsettia stamp inked with DI and cut out, silver thread and gems.

Do visit the other team members as their creations will be fabulous.
I'll be scheduling this post for tomorrow, but just before I go, thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my Oldie yesterday, you are all very kind.

Take care everyone and see you soon

I would like to enter the third card into;

Sleigh Ride Oldie for Friday!

Good Morning Everyone, I've been up since silly o'clock this morning, Teallach though it was great as he got in much earlier than normal and had his breakfast. I've watched the dawn break, but looks as it it's going to be a bit of a dull day, but hey ho what marvellous weather so far for October.

Time for another Oldie, sharing work made at an earlier time on our crafting journey. Just for fun as it's good to see who time has changed what you make and what improvements etc. This all started with Erika of Snappy crafts, and you can share anything that's been hand made.
This little card was made for Damian and Maureen and I'm pretty sure it was the first Christmas card I made for them. obviously you all will recognise the lovely LOTV image and it must be coloured with Promarkers as that would be all I'd have at that time.
That's one thing that's changed in my crafting journey, TOO MUCH STUFF!!, bet you're all the same, and yet still buy more, in fact that will be the case as I'm going down to Glasgow at the end of the month to the big craft show and I have a list of things I hope to find.

Anyhow, do join in with us, it's just for fun and there are quite a few of us who've join in with Erika.

Have a lovely day whatever you plan and see you seen,

Frosty Trees!

Hello to Everyone I hope you are all well and enjoying your day.
Thank you for all your lovely comments and visited, I really do appreciated it as I'm sure like me you are busy. I would have never have believed how busy retirement could have been so busy, but it is, but the good thing is that I can choose what I want to be busy with.

This is just going to be a short post as I'm off soon to see to Milo, and as luck would have it the rain has just started, now this must be the first rain here for a while, there are some lovely big dark clouds. Lots of frost in the garden in the mornings so it's pretty cold.

Here is my card
I've used a beautiful stamp from Chocolate Baroque, Trees, this was one of their AYOS stamps last year. Embossed with WOW EP, then shaded with Teal Memento ink and ink Dusters.
Background is inked with various blue shades of Memento Inks and Ink Dusters, then Winter Bough from Inkylicious embossed with Wow EP, then just a few embellishments.

This is for the CB challenge and here are the colours to follow;
That's me for now, I will be around to look at your lovely creations this evening, I've got a bit of time as Alistair is out at his music group.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Tulip Cat for Friday Oldie!

Hello Everyone, Friday once again, gosh they come around so quickly don't they. I hope you are all well and enjoying your day.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my previous card.
Just a wee quick post today joining in with Erika of Snappy Crafts and you can find her here 
for Friday Oldie. This is just a wee bit of fun posting something handmade from a while back, it's good to see how much your crafting style has changed or improved. It doesn't need to be a card, just something handmade, here's what I've looked out;
This is a lovely Little Claire image and it's coloured with Promarkers, not sure how long ago I made this, but one thing I have noticed about my change of style is that I don't use as many embellishments now, main reason is the cost of postage now. I must however begin to use up my stash of WO flowers and little charms.

Anyway, join in if you can there are quite a few of us playing now and it's just for fun.
Off to link up with Erika now, see you all soon,

Poppy Field!

Good Evening to You, I hope all is going well with you and that you've had a lovely day.
The weather once again up here was cracking, warm and sunny, can hardly believe it's October.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my underwater themed canvas, you've been very kind.

Alistair and I went to the theatre last night to see The Broons. Now all the Scottish Bloggers will certainly know this very Scottish family to be found in the fun pages of the Sunday Post along with Oor Willie. There is a play doing the rounds and it's well worth going to see if it comes near you, well it is if you're a Broons fan. Joyce Falconer who used to be in River City plays Maw Broon and Paw Broon is played by Paul Riley who plays Winston in Still Game, which is returning to TV tomorrow. Now sorry if all you lovely Englandshire folk haven't a clue what I'm talking about, but it is very funny Scottish comedy.  Anyway, the play had a bit of Scottish music and the audience had a good old singalong.Great way to spend a Wednesday night.

So on to my card;
Another lovely stamp from Hobby Art called Poppy Field and coloured with Colourblend Pencils, First Edition Papers and SB die to mat the image on to, a few pearls and a dragonfly gem. Hobby Art stamps are wonderful to colour.

That's me for now, see you soon, take care of yourselves,
