Hello my lovely friends, hope this finds you fine and well and enjoying your weekend!
So my "Blog More" New Year's Resolution has gone a little astray recently, work has been busy, Megan finished her A levels and has been at home since the end of June and now Cameron is off on summer holidays too, and the gorgeous weather have all been keeping me away from my craft desk..but...I am mindful about how quickly the months pass, so yesterday, I decided to have a Craft-ernoon and get another card or two ready for Christmas.
A friend of my Mother's recently gave her a bundle of unused "magazine freebies" - stamps, dies and paper pads, and we have had a wonderful time sifting through these goodies.....I have used one of the stamps on today's card:
Today's card features:
- Tiddlyinks Wryn stamp
- coloured with Promarkers
- blue dotty card from Anna marie designs
- plaid DP from The Range
- Sentiment from LC designs
- Wooden embellishment bought at craft show
- dovecraft twine
I would like to enter:
i love promarkers - Christmas in July
Passion For Promarkers - Christmas in July
brown sugar challenge - anything goes
- love, love, love this dotty card from Anna marie designs, I have it in several colours and they are just so versatile - they go with everything and look fab either as a section piece or the star of the show! I have been getting my supplies from the Sincerely Yours shows...it is always my first port of call, and is factored into my spending budget!

Before I go, I just wanted to introduce a new family member to you all.
this is Tilly!
As many of you know we lost my Dad about 18 months ago and for quite a while now Mum has been talking about having a "companion " around the house. We took Mum to Battersea dog's home at Brands Hatch and we're really impressed with how well they cared for the dogs there and how thorough they were in making sure that the dog and my Mum were right for each other. They have been together for 10 days now, and so far everything is going well. Tilly is a Patterdale Terrier and is the same age, in dog years, as my Mum so they are pretty much two "old dear's" rattling around the house together!
Cheerio for now xx
