Floral Rabbit!

 Hello Everyone, how's your weekend going? I do hope you are enjoying it and that your weather is good.

We were going to go for a drive, but decided not, so I got on with bread and soup making. I used to make our bread, but for some reason, I decided that I wasn't going to any more and threw out my bread making books, I also had a machine and got rid of that too, Who's a numpty!!, of course I decided that I wanted to start again as I really find bread in this country so tasteless. So now I'm looking for some really good bread recipes/books. I even made a cheese loaf for Damian and Moreen who said it would go well with their pasta for dinner.

So, I've been busy finishing off a page in a Hanna Karlzon book;


I though this was a lovely illustration, and I don't colour animals all that often so I thought I'd give this one a go. I've used Prismacolours, soft pastels for the background and some Stickles.


Thank you for all the kind comments you leave about my projects, I do appreciate your visits.

Well, it's feet up now, a cuppa in a wee while, and a bit of TV.

Enjoy your evening and see you soon,

Exotic Flowers!

 Hello Friends and Visitors, I hope you are well and enjoying your day. 

I needed to find the date today to fill in a form and was amazed to learn that it was 28th April, I don't know what I thought it was, but not that far along, this is going to be another quick year.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments that you left on my last post, very much appreciated.  

I have another card today and it's a birthday card for a friend,


This lovely floral image is by Altenew called Exotic Flowers and it comes along with it's die. It's coloured with Zig watercolour pens and I've added some Stickles for sparkle. I found this lovely rich shade of purple card for the background, to finish I've added a few pearls.

It's just a short post tonight, so enjoy your evening and see you soon, keep on keeping safe,

Humour for the CCC!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying your weekend and have some of the lovely weather that we are experiencing here in the Highlands. Beautiful sunshine, but frosty and very cold during the night, but that's okay.

Another fortnight has gone by and it's time for the girls from the Christmas Card Club to show their latest cards, and this time it's our lovely Rachel that's chosen the theme of Humour, here is what I've managed;


Here are the Hobby Art Camels, I love this image, such fun and I've used Prismacolours pencils to colour, and added just a little bit of Stickles to the Santa hat. I only managed one card this time, but I hope it will do Rachel, and I loved the challenge, so thank you.

Thank you too, to everyone who commented on my last post, I so much appreciated them.

Well, tomorrow is a big day for Scotland.....no not the Scottish Election, we have another eleven days for that, but the non essential shops are opening up, I think gyms are too, I'm hoping opticians are as I need my eyes tested. Once again it's not going to make all that much difference to us, other than having at long last our Velux blind  installed in the bed room, it was ordered before Christmas before the latest lockdown. So we'll see how it all goes.

That's me today, have a lovely Sunday whatever your plans and see you soon,

A Cocktail for a 30th Birthday!

Hi there, I hope all's well with you and that you have the lovely sunshine we have today....cool in the shade though.

Alistair is away to the Torridon range of mountains today, a bit further afield for him now that we can travel further, he's with his friend Derek, so no doubt they will have a smashing day, but come home exhausted.

I got my second jab on Monday and apart from a bit of a painful arm and a headache the following morning all's well, just so glad to have got it, especially as there are so many around the world who are not getting the vaccine, due to immoral, inhumane, and monster greed politics of the western countries. I get so angry about this kind of thing. A world pandemic and heads of government are playing a lottery with the vaccine. Anyway I consider myself fortunate.

Moreen, my DiL has asked me if I could make a card for her brother to give to his daughter for her 30th birthday. The remit was cocktails, dining out, gyms, here's what I came up with;


 I thought this image by Pink Gems would be just perfect for Anna, and the best thing of all was that I didn't have to colour it. It's a digital sheet so it was just a question of cutting it all out. I've decoupaged the cherries and the butterflies, and added Glossy Accents and glitter. I will make a box for it, and I've plenty of images left to decorated the box.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last card, your comment are always appreciated.

Did you know that today is National Tea Day? well I'm away to make myself a cuppa, put my feet up and have a read. Take care of yourselves and see you soon,

A Colourful Birthday!

 Hello there, how are you all doing?, I hope the weekend is a good one whatever your plans are. Mid April, the weeks and months are whizzing by, scary or what.

Scotland opened up with travel restrictions being lifted on Friday, we could travel outwith our local council areas. We here in the Highlands, live in a really big  council area which takes in the Islands, however, we just went 20 miles of so to Foyers which is along the side of Loch Ness. We thought going to Nairn or Rosemarkie which is the coast would be crowded. To get to Foyers we had to pass through Dores, a little village on the side of the Loch and it was mobbed. the amount of cars parked along the very narrow road was amazing. It made me wonder what the road at Loch Lomond would be like. Anyhooo, we travelled along to our destination, with the intentions of turning back if that was crowded, but we were lucky, we were he only people there, so we had a lovely woodland walk then sat at the side of the Loch and had our picnic, it was just lovely.

I have a card today,


 

 I've embossed a lovely Altenew stamp called Exotic Garden with WOW white EP on to water colour card and then used Altenew water colour paints to colour. Added a few gems and a sentiment from a Creative Stamping magazine. A little bow to finish.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last post.

I go for my second jab tomorrow, i'll be glad to finally get it, although life will continue as it's been doing for me for the last 18 months or so lol.

Take care everyone and enjoy the remainder of the weekend,

I Want to Ride my Bicycle!

 Hello Everyone, hope all is good for you and that your weeks got off to a good start. After all the strange weather over the weekend, we have now settled down to some lovely sunshine, albeit, in the minuses during the night, in fact it's warm enough for Alistair to sit outside and chew the fat with our neighbour, I can hear them now sorting the world out. 

We will loose our neighbours in a few weeks, as they are going into sheltered housing, having been on the list for years, they are delighted to have been offered one, all on the one level and with a little garden. We will be sad to see them go, but so pleased that they have somewhere that suits. The houses we are in are no good for anyone in the elderly age group and or with any sort of poor physical mobility, and it's something that we will have to be thinking about for ourselves.......eventually.

So Alistair is going to miss his political conversations with Donny, and I'll miss their beautifully tended garden, but nothing stays the same for ever.

My Son and his wife finally got their first vaccine on Saturday, I was so pleased for them, not that they are out and about much, as Moreen still works from home, but Damian has had to start going into his office a couple of days a week, but thankfully, they're stay at home bods, so will still take precautions.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my CCC post, I appreciate your visits and every comment.

I have my first finished page from Johanna Basford's new colouring book;

This is a beautifully illustrated book, such wonderful drawing to colour, and Johanna put it all together during lockdown, and she was telling us on one of her videos that her the books sales are 3rd. after Michelle Obama and Piers Morgans' book, although why anyone would want to buy his book is beyond my understanding, anyway no accounting for taste in my opinion, and Johanna's book was only launch on April 1st. 

So what did I use to colour up this wonderful cycle, Derwent Softcolour and Procolour pencils, I used a petal stencil and DI in the background, I kept the background simple so as not to detract from the picture. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Well, that's it for today, remember to keep yourselves safe and see you soon,

Little Robin Redbrest of the CCC!

Hello Everyone, another weekend and time once again for the Christmas Card Club to show their cards. This time around it's Margaret otherwise known as Duchess who has chosen the theme of Robins . Now who doesn't like to see a Robin on a Christmas card???  So I managed three this time, and if I'd had more time I think I could have made more, lol.

First one up is an upcycled card which was too lovely to throw out;


I love the watercolour look of this little Robin and the paint splashes around him. I've added some glitter and gems. Sentiment is from a Creative Stamping magazine.

Next up;


An image from Hobby Art, I just love this Robin image, I've coloured with Copics, which is not too good, I seem to have forgotten how to colour with them, and paper from an old paper pad, some snow and a few gems, sentiment from a Tonic stamp set.

Finely;


Now this is the one I'm really pleased with how it turned out. The image is from Imagination Crafts, which I've had for years, but never opened. I don't think it was meant to be a Robin, however I gave the bird a red breast, hey presto it's a Robin, and to match his red breast I matted it on to red card and added a red gem. Sentiment is from Tonic. I've added a wee bit of glitter on some of the leaves.

So Margaret, thank you so much for this challenge, I did enjoy it.

So, for days we have had snow throughout the day, off and on, and it's been much colder too. Today's snow has been like little polystyrene balls. Thankfully at low level it's not lying.

I hope you are all well and getting your jabs okay, I'm still waiting for my second one, 19th April, so that will be the full 3 month since my first one. 

We are having a treat tonight, Alistair a fish supper and it's a jumbo sausage supper for me and to hell with the diabetes, you have to live sometimes. 

Thank you so much for your kind comments on my last post, I do appreciate them.

So just going to schedule this for tomorrow, Sunday when the CCC goes live.

Take care everyone and enjoy your weekend

Autumn!

 Hello Everyone, and I hope your Easter holiday has been going well and you are enjoying it.

We woke up to a winter wonderland this morning, snow pelting down, it's not lasting at this level though, but the mountains are plastered with the white stuff once again. Last night saw the temperature at minus 3, so pretty cold. We haven't done anything, Alistair has been painting the fences, and I've been quite happy colouring in, and my new Johanna Basford book arrived. World within Worlds. The whole colouring community has been awaiting it, so lots of You Tube videos already out for inspiration.

Anyhoo, I've a completed page from one of my Rita Berman books



 I just love these books, there is one for every season, and this one is Autumn, I believe the translation is My Autumn Walk.

I've used Derwent Coloursoft and Procolour to colour the picture, and the quote is a stamp by Inkylicous, thought it was very apt. Finished of with a little bit of Stickles.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my Santa card, very much appreciated.

Well, the snow is on again, so it's a day for indoors and I've discovered a fabulous film on, The Fall of the Roman Empire, just my type of epic movie with a cast of thousands, none of this modern digital stuff, and it has a great cast,  Alex Guinness Sophia Loren, Christopher Plummer, and Steven Boyed in the lead roles, only thing is it's on BBC 2, so loo breaks and it's a very long film. Some popcorn would have been just the ticket, but I've none.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday, keep safe if you are able to get out and about more, and I'll see you soon,

When Santa!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and looking forward to the Easter weekend. I think it's to be pretty good weather for most folks and we all have a bit more freedom for travelling, not much but every mile counts.

Thank you so much for your continued visits and the lovely comments that you leave.

I have a card today that I'm going to enter into Hazel's challenge;

https://www.fezziwigsfestivefrolics.com/2021/03/santa-says.html


My image and sentiment are from a Daisy Mae Designs, called When Santa Got Stuck up the Chimney. and I've coloured it with Derwent Softcolour pencils and added some clear gems. The paper is from an older First Edition pad called Vintage. I'm not that happy with the lay down of the colouring, I didn't use my usual Strathmore paper and it seems the the paper I did use isn't suited to the pencils, or the other way around. The more I use colour pencils I'm realising how important what paper you use is. No all pencils suit all types of paper.

Anyway, we have no hard and fast plan for this weekend, if the weather is good we might go for a drive somewhere, but we'll be keeping safe whatever we do.

So that's me for now, take care of yourselves

All the Flowers!

 Hello there, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and that the new week has got off to a good start. For some of you in the UK you have a little bit more freedom, being able to see more people which for many must be wonderful. 

Our daily Covid briefings seem to have stopped because our politicians are out campaigning for the Scottish elections on May 6th. so I'm not all that sure when our more relaxed restrictions start, except for hairdressers opening, I've got that marked in big red letters in my diary, it's 5th April and I've got an appointment on the 8th. I did take the scissors to it the other month with disastrous results lol. 

Just before Christmas I got my very long hair cut, I'd been growing it for 7 years and it was was down my back, and I was fed up with just having to put it up in some kind of way, so I decided I was going all Judy Dench, and I love it. But the only thing with having your hair short is you have to keep getting it cut to maintain the style, which also mean lots of money lol. Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting it cut again.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my Christmas card, I do appreciate your continued visits,

I've completed another page in my planer;


   I've used a combination of Bambino Clay crayons and Derwent Coloursoft pencils, with a few bits of gel sparkly gel pen here and there, finished off with a lovely quote from Card-io stamps. I actually loved colouring this page, some of the pages are so detailed that I begin to loose concentration, so I've decided to leave those alone, after all colouring is supposed to be a stress buster 😄

So that's me for now, remember to continue to keep yourselves safe, the virus is still out there,

Trees, either Inside or Outside for the CCC!

 Hello there, I hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying your weekend, whatever you have planned.

We had a lovely walk around Ardisier this morning, it's a little village along the Moray coast, and the sun was out, but very breezy, and not too warm. Mind you, the weather wasn't deterring swimmers, a whole bunch of them....I don't know what the collective noun would be, were all kitted out in their wet suits ready to take the plunge. Now I would have said the see was too choppy, but when I mentioned that I was told that it was nothing to them. A real bunch of hardy folk, I bet it was exhilarating though.

Anyway, I'm here with this fortnight's Christmas Card Club creations, and this time it's my turn to choose the theme, and it's cards with trees on them, either inside trees or outside.

Here's what I've come up with;




All of the images I've used are by Chocolate Baroque, and I've embossed them in Silver WOW EP. I used some lovely teal coloured embossed paper that Mr's A sent me when I won a wee competition around Christmas time, and also the Novo Drops on one of the cards. Sentiments are from various sets. As usual I've put clear gems to finish. Sadly the photos aren't brilliant, sorry about that.

Do make sure you have a look at the other cards the girls make, they are a;ways fabulous.

That's me for now, thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card.

I'm going to schedule this post for tomorrow Sunday for when the CCC post goes live. Take care everyone ,

With Sympathy!

 Hello Everyone, I hope are feeling good and your week is going well.

Sunny and blustery wind with squally showers for us today, I hate the wind so going for a walk is for me out of the question. Alistair and his chum Bill are away walking over on the Black Isle, gives me a bit of piece, as we are fighting for craftroom space, as he has started another story and his lap top is in there, and of course it's more important he gets his ideas down while he still remembers them, lol.

Anyway, thank you for the lovely comment on my last card, you are always kind in your words and encouragement.

I have one of those cards we hate to make, 


This is a card I made a while ago, I don't post these cards very often. Stamping Up dies and stencil for this one, it's the First Frost set, that was out a couple of years ago. The sentiment is an old one I've had for ages. I've added WOS and some tiny gold pearls.

So just a short post today, Whilst Alistair is away I get a chance to do some house work,  and maybe a bit of colouring.

I'll be back at the weekend with my CCC creations, till then, keep safe,

Birthday Wishes!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and have had a good day, we had sunshine and really quite warm, so Alistair too the chance of the good weather to paint his shed, got it all done too, another job to tick of his to do list. I've not been so industrious, I just did some colouring, in between pottering about lol.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last card, I do appreciated the time you take to visit and leave a word or two.

My card today was a commissioned card for someone who likes rusty colours and anything to do with the sea,

]

 This is a Stamp by Chocolate Baroque and coloured with Distressed Inks and Prismacolour pencils. The paper is from Crafty Individuals. Stickles, shells and yellow sticky on shapes. Sentiment is one from a Creative Stamping magazine. Although this was for a lady's 60th I decided onto to put the number on it as not always people like to be reminded of their age.

Alistair got his 2nd jab yesterday with no bother at all, I've got another month to wait, unless there is a hiccup with getting the vaccine as seems to be happening at the moment, so it may be longer, just have to wait and see.

So, that's me for now, enjoy your evening and keep safe,

Vintage Santa!

 Hi there, how are things going? Another new week begins, I hope it will be a good one for everyone. I believe that Wales is opening up more this week, that's good but still keep safe if Wales is your neck of the wood.

Our Nicola will give us an update tomorrow about any further relaxing of the rule, and today more children went back to school, so we are moving, although slowly.

I've a card today that I want to enter into;

http://www.didosdesigns.com/2021/03/vintage-fezziwigs.html


This is a stamp by Imagination Crafts, which I've had for a number of years and not even opened...shocking!! Anyway I thing it was a good image for Hazel's challenge of vintage. I stamped the image our then cut it with a Carnation Crafts oval die, inked the edges in red. I rummaged around and found this piece of paper and quite liked it, them put all that on to silver mirror card. Gems and Stickles for sparkle.

I was really lucky to have my card chosen in Hazel's last challenge, and I also won the Chocolate Baroque comment on their DT blog. I've not won anything for ages, so chuffed to bits.

Well, Alistair has said he would make tonight's dinner, but so far he's stuck in my craft room listening to a You Tube video, with no signs of putting the oven on, I think he forgets the time lol, I might go and give him a nudge.

Hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday, Damian popped over and brought a beautiful orchid, so lucky, but he couldn't get a Mother's Day card, all sold out, he did buy one with a big heart on it, it was either that he said or ask me to make one lol.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my last card and the one before which was for Alessandro, his mum was delighted with it. It's his birthday today, and we went out to see him when he was brought back from seeing his Gran, which apparently didn't go well as  just cried, we were more lucky as he was all smiles for us😊

So that's me for now, keep safe and see you soon,

Christmas Flowers and Foliage for the CCC!

 Hello to You All, hoping you are well and having a good weekend.

Another two weeks have flown past and it's time for the Christmas Card Club ladies to show their latest cards and this time it's Zoe who has chosen the theme of Christmas Flowers and Foliage, with Anything Goes if you can't manage the theme. Here is what I managed this time;


This is a Chocolate Baroque stamp I've had for a while, and I thought it covered both Flower and Foliage. I've coloured with Canran d'Ache Pablo pencils ( I treated myself to a set as I had been after them for some time, and they are wonderful to use),  gold gel pen and Stickles. Gold mirror card and  some poinsettia paper that's been in my box for ages, cant' remember the brand. The sentiment is from a Creative Stamping magazine, and to finish off I've added gems. 

Thank you Zoe, I enjoyed the challenge, and it's always good to use stash that's been in the cupboard a while.

Just back from a wee walk, but had to shorten its as I seemed to put my knee out and Alistair has done something to his hip, so both of us limping along wasn't good, 

Alistair had a hip replacement about ten years ago, but he is starting to feel that something is not quite right with it, he may need it resurfaced, but I don't expect that will happen any time soon, with the current situation.  I was hearing on our local news that another ward in our local hospital is closed with Covid patients, So no one want's to be in hospital at this time in the great scheme of things if they can help it.

Righty oh, that's me for now, enjoy your day, keep safe and I'll see you all soon,




Monday, 8 March 2021

Hi Little Guy!

 Hello to You All, I hope all is well with you and your day's been good.

Not much news tonight, had a quiet weekend, time to catch up on things in the home, like you do, and a bit of colouring, the weather wasn't all that great for being out and about, except for necessary shopping.

Anyhoo, my card today is for our lovely little neighbour Alessandro who will be 1yr. old next week, his first year has just flown by, even his Mum and Dad feel that.


This is a LOTV digi image and I thought it just suited him perfectly as I only ever see him in his pram leaning out to  give a big smile. 

I've used Crayola coloured pencils and I found some First Edition papers and a wee charm for the corner. A few little Altenew grey embellishments, I don't know what you call them as they are not pearls or gems lol.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my coloured page, I do appreciate them.

That's me for now, so take care everyone and see you soon,

A Paintbrush a Day!

Hello Everyone, imagine Friday already!! Time is flying by. Beautifully sunny this morning but cold, and yesterday we had a wee flurry of snow for all of a minute, although there is more on the mountains, where it can hopefully stay,

The last couple of weeks I've spent time trying to organise a switch of energy supplier.....what a nightmare. I've been with SSE since I came to Inverness, and never thought of changing, but you'll all know that prices are rocket high, so I thought I would try another supplier, who gave me a fantastic quote. It's a long saga, so the upshot, is that I was told nonsense, and in fact they couldn't take me on as a customer because of the type of meter I have, but the guy I spoke to  carried on and signed me up. When I didn't receive any of the promised paperwork or email, I phone again, different person this time, who couldn't find any me on their system.. I decided to cancel the whole process and got on to my existing supplier to be told that they had been contacted and my energy was in the process of being transferred.....panic. 

Anyway, I eventually got it all sorted out, and I remain were I am, with new tariff and £100 added to my account for loyalty.. Lesson learned, don't believe these switching adverts. I had visions of us being left without electricity. I'm too old for that kind of hassle lol.

On to my creation for today,


 Another finished page from my Johanna Basford planner. I'm still behind with the pages, I'm still in January.  Anyhoo, would you believe that all this colouring is done with crayons, Bambino Clay Crayons in fact. Johanna, showing them on one of her video and saying how wonderful they are, and they are, not at all like the usual children's wax crayons, and they blend so well, and cost around £7.

As usual I've added Stickles for sparkle and soft pastels for the background.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my last card.

That's me for today, I hope you are looking forward to the weekend, and be able to doing something good, within the scope we all have just now, take care everyone and stay safe,

On Your Birthday!

 Hello there, what a dreich day here in Inverness, such a change after the last few days, it's much colder too. Anyway, how are you all doing, still coping with with your lockdown? I hope you are. We are still doing fine, Alistair is so looking forward to getting up a mountain, I'm looking forward to him getting up a mountain too lol 😀 but that could still be a while yet.

I've a birthday card to show today;


This little scene uses stamps from a Creative Stamping magazine and coloured with watercolour. I've added a little sparkle with Stickles to the water and the weeping willow. Matted on to black and teal coloured card and the background paper is from a pad bought from The Works. A few pearls to finish.

It's just a short post today, but before I go, just want to thank everyone who commented on my lat card , you are always very kind, and I love to read them.

Stay safe, and see you soon,

Christmas Carols for the CCC!

 Hello to You All, I hope your weekend is going well and that you have some good plans, even although you perhaps can't go all that far yet, or do too many things. Hoping your weather is like ours here in Inverness, beautifully sunny and warm.

Another two weeks have gone by and it's time for the Christmas Card Club to show this challenge's themed card, and this time around it's our very own Rita who has chosen Christmas Carols....or of course anything goes.


I've only managed one card this time, and used a LOTV image that I've had for yonks and coloured with Polychromo pencils, added Glamour Dust glitter for the sparkle. For some reason which I'm not entirely sure about I decided to cut the card shape and the image out with a Honeybee die shape. The musical notes, snowflakes and sentiment are all from Dovecraft. Finishing off with a few clear gems.  I hope this'll do Rita, thank you for the challenge I did enjoy it, using both old stash and new.

I'm going to schedule this card for tomorrow for when the CCC post goes live.

Take care everyone and keep safe


 I would like to enter my card into;

Every Day!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are all having a good weekend whatever your plans have been. We haven't really done much, a bit of housework today, but yesterday, we had a lovely walk by the sea and blew away some cobwebs.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last  post, I appreciate  them all.

I have another finished page from Johanna Basford's planner;


I used Derwent Inkintense pencils, a pencil I don't often use, so I need quite a bit of practice I think. I gave the blooms a bit of sparkle with various colours of Stickles. The background is coloured with Faber Castel soft pastel and I decided something was needed within the wreath, so I found this lovely sentiment from Altenew. I'm quite pleased with the finished result.

Just a short post tonight so I will love you and leave you and see you soon, stay safe,

A Windmill in Cocot!

 Hello Everyone, I do hope all is well with you and that your new week has got off to a good start.

It's been a mixed bag of weather up here but the temperature has gone way up, but high winds and a bit of rain.

Our weekend was highlighted with a lovely Valentine M&S meal, chocolates and flowers, and they say romance is dead lol.

Thank you for the lovely comments about the cards on my last post, all of them appreciated. 

I have a finished page for you today from one of my newer books, the artist is a Japanese lady called Eriy and all her drawings are made with a toothpick and ink., here's the book;


It's a lovely book, and a story of an imaginary  country called Cocot. Very whimsical. Anyhoo here is my coloured page;


 Cocot has lots of windmills and here is one of them. I coloured it up with Prismacolour pencils, some gel pen and a watercoloured sky......wish I hadn't as I don't really like it, not used to doing such a large area in watercolour...you live and learn. I added some little flowers and dandelions, from Little Clair stamps and the birds are by Inkylicious. And the little duck who is a resident of Cocot is called Joset, and she is one of the little characters that pop up throughout the book. Hope you like it, it was fun to do.

That's all for now, hoping to get around to visiting your blogs later tonight. Keep safe everyone,
