New PB Stamp

This is my new stamp & embossing folder from the SECC, I've made a simple card using the folders & ribbon.
The stamp is Winter Swing coloured with promarkers & a simple layout.
I really do prefer simple cards I think they are more effective.
Many thanks for any comments,

PB Challenge Spooky

I was at the SECC & spent loads, but a bit disappointed as there was lots on my list I couldn't find. I'm a bit shattered now so having an early night.

Spooky challengeI have used a layout from another challenge on Dc & really got so muddled with all the circles, I couldn't find my spiders either, really must have a tidy & label things, especially as I now have loads more to store.

I've used PB Fearless Frank I really enjoyed colouring him.
K&Co halloween DP from ages ago, pity we don't make more of these cards
Hero Arts sentiment & some halloween confetti
Pumpkin button
Many thanks for any comments which are always appreciated.
Have a good weekend

Just Magnolia Challenge

My Entry for the sketch challenge, just made it we had no power yesterday so nothing done & freezing cold, so just managed to get this finished. I.ve just noticed in my haste I forgot to cut out a piece of the white, I'll just have to rescue it later.

I actually got back to the gym today, I managed the pilates class, so it's a start, a bit tired now & will probably be a bit achy tomorrow, but at last I feel I'm getting back to my old self.

Card Recipe:
I've used my new Tilda stamp, coloured with promarkers
DP have been lying around for ages I think they are from the DC range
WOC cherry blossoms
Spellbinders circles
Sentiment is from a clear set.
Many thanks for any comments which are always appreciated,

Knitting Kilt hose

I've been doing these while I've been ill & found it very relaxing, not knitted for a while & promised my son ages ago I'd make him some. (I did finish the pair, but the pic is better with one sock.
If anyone has another pattern for Aran sock's I'd love a copy, I have lots of wool left over but finding a pattern is near impossible, I don't really want a plain knit as I much prefer patterns.
So please if anyone has such a thing hiding in the loft, please think of me.

Take care Ann x

PBSC Not a Square

I'm very last minute with this so it's a quickie. it's been so dark here & very difficult for colouring which I prefer to do in daylight

Don't be a Square
I've used PB Student Witch coloured with promarkers
K&Co halloween pad & embellishments
Nellies diecuts
I've randomely cut a resemblance to a pumpkin?
as it 's a bit last minute I didn't want to tryany distressing in case I messed it up.
So a nice & easy not a square card.
Many thanks for any comments & paying me a visit, I'm a little better today & went out for a wee walk, it's been four long weeks, so fingers crossed I'm on the mend.I might even get my flu jab next week.
Take care & stay well

PB @Allsorts Challenge

This months challenge is for Autumn Colours
Here is mine I've used a gatefold card for a change, but it's still a square so doesn't qualify for the PBSC, so will have to think of another.
I'm still struggling a bit for energy as still really weak from all the antibiotics so I'm only managing a short time on here, so many thanks for the comments & for taking the time to visit.
Take care Ann x
