Rufus and the Red Berries for the CCC!

 Hello Friends and Visitors, I hope all's well with you and you are enjoying your weekend, especially having that extra hour.

I've been a tad busy since I was last here as Alistair was taken into hospital last week suffering pain in his abdomen, turned out it was a hernia, but it could have been his appendix as was thought at the time. I had a scaring drive to the surgery with him and he was blue lighted from there. So no vacuuming for him or lifting anything heavy for a few weeks, so I'm exhausted with doing his share of the chores  as well as my own. Anyway, he's on the mend, and he had excellent treatment in Raigmore hospital, even although they were on red alert.

so, this is the first time I've been near my computer for ages.

Anyhoo, it's time once again for the Christmas Card Club to show their latest cards, and this time the theme is something beginning with R, I've taken a bit of artistic licence with my card,

This is Rufus looking up at the Red Berries, so two lots of Rs, cheating a bit I know. 

Rufus and the berries are from Lavinia Stamps, and the little branches are from Card-io. Sentiment from Chocolate Baroque. Fluffy Puff stuff for the snow, glitter and white Posca pen. I used Glossy Accents on the berries. 

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last card. Hoping to get around to visiting some of your blogs to see what you've been up to. 

Cheerio for now, take care,

Autumn Foliage!

 Hello Friends and Visitors, I hope you are all keeping well, but for those who aren't here's a Big Hug!

I'm just popping in with a short post to show this card,

This design was inspired by Elizabeth Schwabe from Del Bello's Design Team.

I didn't manage to find a real leaf, so I used the Lavinia Stamps leaf Sticker Stencil, Fairy Toadstool, and the Autumn works stamps. Elements Ink, gel pens and Gilding Flakes.

It's not quite turned out as Elizabeth's . but it's not all that bad.

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

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

Wings and Things for CCC!

Welcome Friends and Visitors, I hope all's well with you and that you are enjoying the weekend.

It seems impossible that two weeks have gone by and it's time for another Christmas Card Club Challenge and this time the theme is Wings and Things,

 Sorry about the poor photography. 

I have Rory and Darcy, aren't they so cute, surrounded by trees and Christmas charms with snow falling. I inked up my round gel press for the background. I've added some sparkle gel pen and tiny gems. 
I'm sure fairies have Christmas too.

There we are, another card for the box. We are marching so quickly towards Christmas, it's frightening.

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

Autumn Pumpkins!

 Hello Friends and Visitors, I hope you are well. 

It seems a while since I was last here, finding difficult to get to the computer these days, but here I am now with a card using one of the new stencils from Sweet Poppy Stencils,

This design was inspired by Robin Reilly from Dell Bello Designs, she's a fabulous designer.

I've used the new Pumpkin Stencil and Elements inks to colour them with a Lavinia stencil to make the pattern on the pumpkins. Lavinia sentiment down the side of the card and finished off with a glitter gel pen

Well that's me for now, I'll be back at the weekend with the latest CCC card, take care of yourselves, oh and thank you for the lovely comments on my last card, so kind as usual.

March Calendar Page !

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

Autumn has really settled in here, the leaves are falling fast now, still some warmth around though. Getting dark earlier now.

Anyway, I've finished another page in my 2024 calendar, here is the page for March,

 I was thinking of March hares for this one so, I've got Lupin and Logan having fun with the Top Hat, I wandered into the Mad Hatter with this one. Fairy Thistles and some foliage.  Coloured with Zig Clean pens and gel pens. A sticker sentiment, Love Life which I thought went well with the hares having fun.

I'm not getting through these pages as quickly as I thought I would, need to step up if it's to be finished for next year.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments left on my previous post, you are all so kind.

That's me for now, going to visit and see what you have all been creating. Take care of yourselves, bye for now,

Christmas in the Forest for CCC!

Hello Everyone, hoping all is well with you and that you are enjoying the weekend.

A fortnight has passed and it's time again for the Christmas Card Club ladies have been busy making their latest cards with the theme of Christmas in the Forest, here is mine.

 All Card-io stamps and the stencil also. Inspired by Wendy from Card-io, except that I had to use some different stamps and stencil as I don't have the ones she used, I've used stamps from various sets and coloured with Versacolour ink, gel pens and lots of sparkle.

Just a quick pop in today, we are going to get out for a walk in between showers, take care and see you soon,
