Just Magnolia - Doily

Hi, I haven't done a challenge for a while, been knitting as we had another premature baby arrive, they all seem to be in such a hurry these days, anyhow been busy making some tiny stuff, also had a horrid cold with a head like cotontwool, so it suited me fine not to have think too much.

Another thing is my son has monopolised the computer, he's been on holiday, so not had any chance to come on.

On to my card
I've use a Hanglar image coloured with promarkers
DP been around for ages
Spellbinders doily shape,
Bazzil card
Silver ribbon & flowers from stash

Will try to get around to some blog visiting later, off to make the tea

Just Magnolia Challenge


Knitting like fury

Still no time for cards, have to finish bolero before Tuesday,so far done back & two fronts so can see the light, will crack on while watching DOI.
Finished my book Kay, thanks for asking, have to read Dawn French biog before Friday & have another Linwood Barclay waiting, I've absolutely loved all of his books, Never Look Away is next on the list.
I'm starting a new class tomorrow, Patchwork, like I need a new hobby, but always quite fancied having a try, so tomorrow another mega busy day, how I wish I could afford a housekeeper, will try to find time to give the duster & hoover a whizz round.
Have a nice evening before the dreaded early Monday rise.

Hi All

Nothing to post, just saying hello
been busy with quick christmas cards, finishing baby knitting & new baby card, I posted them yesterday & clean forgot to take a picture of them, to be honest I was fed up looking at the all in one baby suit with bear ears ( which I had to go buy another ball of wool, just for one ear) I was glad to see it in the post.
Just another baby bolero to do before Wednesday, but the problem is I'm reading a really good book, almost finished it, another Linwood Barclay- Too Close to Home, highly recommend his books & can't put it down, I can see me up all night knitting.
Off to finish my book
enjoy the rest of the weekend

Garden Treats PB CASE Challenge

Hi all, a challenge card today for my fav challenge PBSC.
I've used my new stamp Garden Treats, we are keen gardeners & we are kept amused by the antics of a ginger kitten leaping about the allotment, not exactly cat lovers as we are both allergic, but we do get a lot of laughs with it, not so sure about when it gets bigger though!!

On to the card
Image Penny Black coloured with promarkers
Layout (sort of) PBSC
Sizzix die
MB Cloud die
EK success retro flower
Pearls Cuddly Buddly sentiment

Many thanks for visiting & for any comments.
Happy weekend Ann x
OOPS Just noticed I haven't coloured in the earth bit under his feet!


Baby Card

Hello all, I've been missing again, just not had any inspiration for card making, been reading & knitting, as well as going to the gym & it's dark when I get to sit & relax so not good for colouring.
I was asked to make a card for someone leaving to have a baby, so after lots of messing about & nothing working, I even sent for a new stamp, but in the end didn't use it.

Anyhow this is what I came up with

Magnolia sleeping baby Tilda
marianne die
MS butterfly punch
Seam binding
Sizzix alphabet dies
White embossed pearlescent card

I've entered this in Just Magnolia challenge Anything Goes option of a Valentine, but no one to send one of these to.
Many thanks for looking & for any comments, please have a look at my Special Magnolia blog candy, available till 14th Valentines day.

Flowers Frenzy PBSC

A very quick simple card, I had a manicure today & struggling to feel, pick up & take backing off dst, just about got the hang of using tweezers for this, I do love my new nails though.
I've used a stamp I had ready for last weeks challenge which didn't get done, craft room is still a no go area at the moment.
I love fushias too, I have lots of different types in my garden

PB Prince of Orange stamped all over background
Image stamped & coloured with SU inks

Many thanks for looking & please have a look at my blog candy

Challenge PBSC


Special Edition Tilda :Blog Candy

Hello all,
I have this Special Edition Tilda Holding Hearts up for February Blog Candy.
I hope you can see her, I didn't want to use the stamp to add an image.
As some people know I support The British Heart Foundation & as February is RED HEART MONTH I thought this stamp would be appropriate.
It will be 21 years this month since I lost my husband to a heart attack, just as Tilda is taking care of the hearts she is holding, you can also help, by just putting a little heart message on the Heart Foundation shop window for £1 you can help look after hearts too.

I've tried to add mr linky but I'm not too good with gadgets so I'll just do a draw the old fashioned way........ get someone to pick a name from a hat.

This is open to UK ONLY I will do the draw on the 14th Feb, St Valentines Day the last card he ever gave me.
(believe me he was not a romantic & it was unusual to get one)
Please help support The BHF
