Use Stencils for the CCC!

 Hello Blogging Friends, I hope you are having a good day and keeping well. 

It's time for the Christmas Card Club to show of their latest creations, and this time around the theme is Stencils, here is what I've come up with,

On a grey circular card I've stencilled on some snowflakes. This stencil is an old one from Imagination Crafts, I've added little gems and silver mica splatters. The sentiment is from one of Lavinia Stamps sticker sentiment sheets. Very simple card.

I want to thank you for all the lovely encouraging comments you left on my last post, about remaining on Blogger, and I have to say I was further encouraged to learn that quite a few of you feel the same. I tend to feel guilty if I don't comment every day, like I used to, but I'm learning to pace myself and if I can't manage I don't beat myself up about it. Of course it will mean that I will miss  some fabulous cards from you, but, I will I will catch some.

Anyhow, I'm going to have a catch up with your creation now, take care everyone and cheerio for now

Time Flies!

 Hello Everyone, hope all is well with you and life is good.

Popping in today to show a card  requested by a friend for her Brother's birthday, I actually made two to give her a choice,

I've used clocks and cogs from Lavinia Stamps latest release which has a Steampunk theme. I edged the card with gold Glistening polish and splattered gold mica on to it.

I will post the other card at a later date.

I'm sorry, that I'm not getting around to commenting as much as I used to, I'm afraid I'm find it a bit of a chore, I'm often just too tired. I think it must be all part of what's wrong just now. I haven't all that much inclination to make cards either, I've got to really push myself. 

I've been blogging for a good number of years now, and perhaps it's time to stop, I've not entirely made up my mind on that one, but a lot of people seem to have gone that way, many are Followers, anyhoo, we'll see what happens.

Thank you very much for the lovely comments on my last card, I do appreciate them.

I'll say cheerio for now, and see you next time, take care,

Playing in the Moonlight!

 Hello Everyone, I do hope all is well with you.

We have had more lovely weather, hopefully you have too. This month is fairly marching on though,  frightening !!

Anyway, just a quick post tonight to show you this latest card using Lavinia Stamps with a Scenescape background paper,

I've entered the card into the Lavinia Creative Challenge.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last card, I really do appreciated every one of them.

That's me for now, take care of yourselves,

Cats /Dogs for the CCC!

 Hello to You All, I hope you are enjoying your weekend and that you have such a lovely warm and sunny day as we have here.

Hoping everyone is keeping well too.

Thank you for your well wishes on my health, I did get to speak to the surgery pharmacist early on in the week and he was very helpful and I now know what this new medicine is for, and unfortunately I will be on it for evermore. It's pretty awful to take even mixed with orange juice and a horrible texture, but hey ho, needs must. Anyway, I hope it will help.

It's time for the Christmas Card Club to show their latest card with the new theme, and it's Cats/Dogs, I chose Dogs.

Not the best of photos, sorry about that. This is a Hobby Art stamp called Pawsome Christmas, and coloured, with gel pens, Zig water markers, Oxides and mica powder.  It does honestly look better in real life.

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

That's all from me just now, take care and have a lovely weekend,

 Hello Everyone, and Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. I hope you are well and enjoying life.

Sorry not to have been around for a wee while, truth is I've been too tired to really do much blogging or commenting, and just not feeing all that well.

 I had been waiting for the results of the SeHCAT scan which were never arriving, but meanwhile I received new medication which I guessed was to do with whatever was found in the scan. Total daftness, what was this new medication, why was I getting it and how was it going to react with my existing meds. Without the results I was certainly not going to be taking it. The letter finally arrived on Good Friday, no real information, just that I had more bile acid than I needed. I know the NHS is struggling, but I would have expected more information about the condition. 

However, I have a phone consultation with the surgery pharmacy on Wednesday morning, so hopefully I will learn more, failing that I will have to phone and see if I can speak to the Consultant Gastro fella. 

Enough of all that, I've got a little card for you today,

once again, mostly Lavinia stamps, and stencil. Sentiment is a stamp I've had for a while and not sure where from. 

Thank you so much for the lovely comments you've left on my last post.

That's me for now, enjoy the rest of the holiday and take care of yourselves,

Winter Animals for the CCC!

 Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and enjoying your weekend.

April has crept up on us hasn't it, seems to have come around so quickly, if only it would get a bit warmer.

Anyway, it's time once again for the Christmas Card Club to show off their cards, and this time the theme is Winter Animals, of Anything Goes.

Well as you can see I opted for some lovely deer, and this was from one of those sheets you pop out the picture, it's a Kanban one, who remembers them??? I've had it for yonks. The stencilled sentiment is from Imagination Crafts and some glitter paste. Finished off with some crystal gems. Just a wee simple stick together card.

Thank you so much for you lovely comments on my last card, your kind words always encourage me.

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