Cough, splutter....

... just blowing the cobwebs off my blog - lordy, where has the time gone!!!  In my defence we did have a great week away for our annual jaunt down to Henley, for the kids to do the theme parks, I am always surprised that my eldest still loves Legoland, when he goes on the fastest, scariest rides at Thorpe Park & Chessington - every year I think he wont want to go and he does - brilliant.  Being the bit of a geek that I am I loved the mini Star Wars exhibition and took loads of photo's - sad I know - lol.

I always hope for a bit of retail therapy - but it doesnt happen :-( a quick pootle round the ground floor of Libertys before we trot off to Hamleys - funny that they dont mind spending a lot of time there, but 5 mins in my type of shop and oh my the whinging!!!

Hope you are all enjoying the Jubilee Celebrations, very quiet here though no street party - I was going to do a picnic but the weather has been cold and drizzly so that didnt happen, I do have some flags and paper chains up which hubby described as feeble - lol.  Dont know why he was moaning, he didnt want any up anyway - so at least I didnt go over the top.

Right, I do have some cards made so I'd better blog them (or at least one of them):

I have loved this Wee Stamps digi image for ages, and finally got round to buying it, - I have coloured her with promarkers (and also tried out my pencils on her hair), the paper is Echo Park and I have used my new die, think is was a Marianne - it doesnt show to well on the photos but it is under where the pearls are which are from my stash as is the ribbon.

I would like to enter this into:

Bunny Zoe - anything goes
Ribbon Girl - use ribbon or lace
Hotshot crafts - die cut
I love promarkers - use a digi

This LOTV cutie was a freebie with a magazine, she has been coloured with pro-markers and matted onto papers which were again free with a magazine and then I have added ribbon and pink pearls from my stash (apologies for the quality of the photo)

I would like to enter this into:
Lilies little fairies - anything goes.
Ooh la la - make it girly

Lastly a man card:

Just a clean & simple one for Ians nephew, a Penny Black image from Ebay, coloured with pro-markers and some glossy accents to his nose, matted onto red card with a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

Off for a nosy to see if there are any c&s challenges.

Enjoy the rest of the bank holiday, hopefully I'll be back a lot sooner for my next post.

Take care & thanks for looking


P.S.  Do you ever look at your stats, its not something I often do, but I did look the other day and I'm getting referrals from something to do with Viagra and average penis width???  Hmmm I wonder what they are googling to end up here - sorry if you get here and dont find what you are looking for - lol


  1. love the cards - specially the wee stamps one xx

  2. Love the cards!! The girls are very cute and pretty and that dag is just fabulous :-)

    Well, maybe your cards are just so desirable to men that they don't need the viagra after stopping by, lol! That is a weird one though
