Sorry I've not been in blogland for quite a while.  My chest has flared up bad again, so at moment I'm having to rest and can't do very much. I've just got some new stronger antibiotics and so hoping they will kick in proper by weekend.

My room is coming along nicely though... am starting to get some of my crafty stuff back into it. Can't wait to start crafting again.

Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate them.
Take care
Love and hugs

Rudolph the Teal Nosed Reindeer.....

Hi all... thought I'd pop in to say hello... so you don't forget me!! ;-)

Real life is still getting in the way of my crafting at the moment... and I'm really missing it to be honest... so might have to try and find a few bits and bobs to play with soon... see if I can squeeze in a card.

We're still having work done on the house... so most of my crafting stuff is packed away! :-(
but my room is at least looking tidier than before...and I have my new bed which is SO comfy! :-)

I found this card all done in draft... meant to post it before Christmas but forgot... so thought I'd share it with you today... it was one of my fave cards that I made in run up to xmas... I planned it all out properly in my head beforehand... don't usually do that. And was pleased with how it came out.


Die: Cheery Lynn - Winter Neighbourhood Border (Landscape)
Die: Spellbinders Frosty Forms (Reindeer)
Die: Nellie Snellen Multi Frame - Square Snowflakes (Snowflakes)
Die: Spellbinders borderabilities A2 Curved Borders (Snow layers)
Die: Creative Expressions - Classic Poinsettias by Sue Wilson
Stamp: Creative Expressions - Cling Stamp - Elegant Poinsettias by Sue Wilson


 The Poinsettia was die cut out of vellum and then stamped and embossed with white fine detail embossing powder. I used a white gel pen to stencil the details on the reindeer. Finished off with some gems and lots of stickles to create sparkly snow.

I have got my Christmas Rudolph Sweater on today! we're behind with the washing... and couldn't find a clean chunky jumper apart from this xmas one.... and I was SO cold !! so figured... as it's snowing anyway... may as well go with the flow! Lol
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Love and Hugs

MAWTT - Spots or Dots

Good Morning! I'm here with Team B at


our lovely Jessie is hosting this week's challenge and has a fab theme of...

Spots or Dots
We would like your creation to have... polka dots or spots....  big or small.... to give us a cheery start to the New Year! :-)

This was a card for male... so kept it very CAS... and let the beautiful LOTV Pre-Coloured image do the talking... I was going to add some gold nailheads but they seemed to spoil the balance... so left it be... 



I used some of  my all time favourite 'go to' papers for males... Kaisercraft Hunt & Gather which seem to match perfectly. I think the sentiment was a freebie with magazine? I use it a lot as it's a nice size.

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's spotty and dotty creations and hope you can join us for this fun challenge! 
you have until Wednesday 20th January at 6pm GMT to enter.

Thankfully I made this card a long time ago, way before Christmas... good job I made it early, as I still don't have access to my crafting stuff at the moment. We're working hard to get my room sorted, and are making progress, but think it's gonna take longer than I expected. One job seems to lead to another.

My new bed arrived today ... SO glad... just have to let the new mattress settle for 24 hours and then bliss!! can't wait to get on it and in it!! my spine pain has been so bad without it. Sure hope it's comfy!

Will catch up with you as soon as I can
Love and hugs

Happy New Year 2016 !!!!!


Happy New Year 2016 !!!! 

I really hope this next year will be a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous Year for you.
Hugest of Hugs to those of you who are unwell or going through difficult times... I hope and pray things improve for you soon!

Apologies if I am not in Blogland very much over next couple of weeks... my bedroom/craft room is having a makeover and so all my crafting stash has been moved out temporarily. So I'm unable to craft at the moment. I'm also waiting for a new bed to arrive and so can't go on internet for long, as there is nowhere comfy to sit with my laptop.

I will catch up with you all as soon as I can.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Take Care
Love and hugs
