Golden Trees!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are all doing okay, and keeping warm and cosy. It's turned pretty cold up here with the temps in the minuses and there's heavy sleet forecast for later tonight. Even Teallach is not staying out long these days, can't blame him.

Anyhoo, I've a card tonight for you,

This is a design inspired by Robin Riley who is a DT member for De Bello Designs. I didn't have the exact stamps and stencil, I just used what I had. I used the Lavinia Fir Trees and embossed them with gold WOW embossing powder, the sentiment is also embossed and is from Card-io. A simple design but lovely.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last card, I always appreciate them.

That's me for now, thanks for your visits, see you soon,

Deer for the CCC of Anything Goes!

 Hello there to you all, I hope everyone is well and having a lovely weekend.

I got food shopping done quite early this morning, it's good to get it out of the way, and I've spent a bit of time making Christmas tags in the afternoon, managed a bit of knitting too,

Well, it's time once again for the Christmas Card Club ladies to show their latest cards and this time Rachel chose the theme of Deer, or, of course Anything Goes.

I've used Lavinia stamps once again and this design has been influenced by Eleana Evens from the Lavinia DT.

Magnus is the name of the beautiful stag and he's awfully interested in looking at the tree, I wonder what he's seeing. Fairy Fir tree and a group of fir trees in the background. Elements ink, gel pen and posca splats. The verse is also from Lavinia.

I hope this will do Rachel. I enjoyed the challenge, so thank you so much.

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

I'll get this post scheduled for tomorrow. Do have a look at the other cards my teammates create, they are always fabulous.

Take care and cheerio for now, see you soon,

Welcome Home!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and looking forward to the weekend.

It's the Choral Society's winter concert tomorrow, and it will be my first concert in three years. Not in the theatre this time, but in one of our local churches, and we have a lovely programme, so I think it will be a lovely evening. It's going to be the first I've been dressed up and wearing posh show for a long time, more used to jeans and trainers­čśâ

Anyhoo, here is my card for today,

I used one of the Lavinia Scenescapes in the background, and the gorgeous fairy is called Zemira, and the owls are Brodwin and Maylin. I've stamped bramble along the top and down the side and stamped the Tree of Wisdom on the opposite side. Lots of silver gel pen and Stickles.
Thank you for the lovely comments on my last card, I appreciate every one of them.
That's me for now, enjoy your weekend, take care of yourselves,

Shopping's Finished!

Hello there, I hope you are all doing well, if not, here are some healing vibes to feel better soon.

Been a dark, dreich day here, and now it's pouring down. Poor Teallach really wants to go out, but he's a tad shy of the rain, keeps getting me up to open the door, then just stands and sniffs the air, and walks back into the room. I keep telling him he'll have to brave it before bedtime.

I have another snow globe card tonight,

 The snow globe stencil id from Sweet Poppy, and all the stamps are various Card-io sets, inked with Elements Ink. Gel pen and sparkle with glitter. An envelope to match, I just love all these wee happy snowmen.

Thanks to all who left comments on my last post, very much appreciated. That's me for now, take care and keep safe,

Crackers for CCC or Anything Goes!

 Hello there, hope you are having a good weekend. Don't they come around so quickly; in fact, this whole year has gone by in a flash, and we are almost at the end of our CCC challenges.

Anyway, it was Rita who chose this weeks challenge of Crackers. There wasn't a cracker in sight, well, not strictly true, we have plenty of the eating kind, so I'm posting an Anything Goes card,

Once again, a combination of Lavinia and Card-io stamps. I've used one of Lavinia's new circular cards, gel pens, Stickles and water colour pencils. I don't know what's happened to the colours, the base card is white.

Sorry Rita that I could make the theme, I hope this will do.

That's me for now, I'll get this scheduled for tomorrow for when the CCC post goes live. Enjoy your evening,

Noof and Friends

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well and enjoying life.

We've had a really blustery day here, and I hate high winds, can be so dangerous.

Anyway, I've got the birthday card I made for my friend Fiona,

Here's beautiful Noof and her friends, all stamps are by Lavinia Stamps. Oxide and Elements inks, gel pens and some sparkle.

Fiona loved it, and that's all that matters. Fi is getting on fine and almost completed her radiotherapy treatment. She remains positive and is hoping to come along to our Choral concert next week.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last card. Well, that's me for tonight, time for a cuppa I think, so I'll say cheerio for now and see you soon,

 Hello to you all, I hope you are well and having a great weekend.  It's been a lovely day here, although really cold in the morning, but I've done nothing except shopping and housework, well I guess it's got to be done sometime.

Yesterday was Alistair's birthday, here is the card I made for him

Once again Lavinia Stamps. I thought this image made a fabulous male card, and something just that little bit different. I inked up a round gel plate with Elements and Versafine Clair inks. The tree stencil on the envelope is from Imagination crafts. Alistair loved it.

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

Just a short post today, thank you for your visits, take care and see you soon,

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and having a relaxing evening.

I'm just popping in with the Anniversary card I made for Alistair. We are 27 years married today.

Using a combination of Lavinia Stamps and Card-io Stamps I decided to have these little kissing hares in the wreath. Elements in for colouring.

Have to say he loved it.

We've has a lovely day, going for an Indian meal, back to a restaurant we were last in well before covid.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last card, as always you are so kind.

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

Jolly Roger!

Hello Everyone, I hope all's well with you and yours and that you've had a good day.

Teallach and I have the house to ourselves for a couple of days as Alistair is away to Strathdon for a funeral, and decided to stay over with friends, peace and quiet, and some time spent in the craft room.

Here is a card made for a young friend,

I've used an old Chocolate Baroque image and coloured with water colour pencils. The stencilled background is from Lavinia Stamps, Elements ink. I thought this would do for a young man.

Before I sign off, just want to say thank you for the lovely comments on my last card, very much appreciated.

Take care of yourselves and cheerio for now,
