MY CAT MORTICIA, WAS LYING IN THE SUNSHINE RIGHT UNDER THE FEEDERS.....HOW LONG SHE HAD BEEN THERE I DO NOT KNOW, ANYWAY SHE CAME IN WHEN I GOT IN AND WELL. IT WAS LIKE A SCENE FROM THE HITCHCOCK MOVIE THE BIRDS, THE FEEDERS WERE COVERED IN SPARROWS, AND EVEN 3 BABY PIDGEON'S .SO WILL BE OUT LATER TO REFILL READY FOR TOMORROW. KNOW I'M NOT SURE IF YOU ARE AWARE, BUT I AM A MEMBER OF AN ONLINE GRAFT CLUB, CALLED CRAFT BUBBLE, AND I OPENED A CRAFT GROUP CALLED CRAFTER'S DELIGHTS, AND I AM PROUD TO SAY WE HAVE 28 MEMBERS, NOW TO MAKE IT MORE FUN, I SUGGESTED THAT WE DID A MONTHLY CHALLENGE, THIS MONTH BEING AUTUMN, EACH MEMBER HAS TO DESIGN A CARD WITH AN AUTUMN THEME....AND WE HAD THE MOST WONDERFUL DESIGNS SUBMITTED, THE ONLY THING WAS I HAD TO CHOOSE A WINNER, AND IT WAS SO DIFFICULT, AS THEY WERE ALL BEAUTIFUL, HOW THEY DECIDE ON A WINNER IN THESE SINGING AND DANCING SHOWS I NEVER KNOW....ANYWAY A WINNER WAS CHOSEN AFTER MUCH DELIBERATION..... AND THE GOOD THING IS THE WINNER OF THIS CHALLENGE GETS TO JUDGE THE NEXT ONE, SO I GET TO SIT BACK RELAX......OH THE PRESSURE.......

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES.....

GOOD AFTERNOON

WELL WHAT A DIFFERENCE IN THE WEATHER TODAY....STILL VERY WINDY BUT THE SUN IS OUT, WAS WATCHING THE BIRDS ON THE FEEDERS IN OUR GARDEN, AND THEY ARE LIKE LITTLE KAMI KAZI PILOTS, TRYING TO LAND ON THE FEEDERS THAT ARE BLOWING BACK AND FORTH IN THE WIND.....WELL HAD PLANNED TO TAKE THE DOGS OUT YESTERDAY BUT SADLY DUE TO WEATHER, WE HAD TO SCRAP OUR PLANS...SO I TOOK THE DOGS OVER TO TEHIDY WOODS THIS MORNING, WAS THERE BY ABOUT 10.30 AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE QUITE, BUT I THINK EVERYBODY ELSE HAD THE SAME IDEA, STILL THE BOYS AND QUEEN SMARTY PANTS HAD A GOOD OLD SNIFF AND RUMMAGE IN THE UNDERGROWTH, AND THEY MADE TWO NEW FRIENDS, MR BENSON A COLLIE AND HENLEY A RETRIEVER....SO AT THE MOMENT THINGS ARE QUITE HERE I THINK THEY ARE WORN OUT BLESS....ON THE WAY BACK I CALLED IN TO MY MUM'S AND GUESS WHAT MY PRESSIE HAD ARRIVED, FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT , MY MUM GOT ME THE GRAND CALIBUR CUTTING MACHINE FOR MY CHRISTMAS PRESENT, SO I AM ITCHING TO HAVE A PLAY...I DO LOVE MY CUTTING MACHINES, THEY CAN CUT OUT THE MOST INTRICATE DESIGNS, SO HOPEFULLY I WILL BE ABLE TO DESIGN A CARD TODAY AND USE IT FOR MY BLOGG TOMORROW. I AM FINDING IT QUITE HARD TO WRITE A BLOGG TODAY, AS MY FRIEND AT THE YARD IS HAVING HER HORSE PUT TO SLEEP TODAY, AND I CANNOT SEEM TO FOCUS ON WRITING, I JUST KEEP THINKING ABOUT MARY, I HAVE TRIED TO KEEP MYSELF BUSY BUT  I CANNOT GET IT OUT OF MY MIND, BUT LOOKING AT THE CLOCK I THINK IT WILL ALL BE OVER, AND CLOVER WILL BE IN PAIN NO MORE.
 SO I THINK I AM GOING TO HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE FOR KNOW.

BASE CARD IS WHITE 320GSM.
MATERIALS USED ARE FROM A RANGE FROM TILDA
THEY ARE DIE CUTS AND ALL YOU DO IS PUSH OUT, THEY ARE SO SIMPLE, AND IF LIKE ME YOU DO NOT LIKE CUTTING OUT THEN THESE ARE IDEAL.
I HAVE MATCHED THE COLOUR TONES WITH THE DIE CUTS, SO HAVE USED PRIMARILY  BLUE AND PINK, THE EMBOSSING HAS BEEN DONE BY USING THE  EMBOSSING FOLDER BY X CUT CALLED HAPPY DAY'S, THESE MATCH SO WELL THE THEME THAT I HAVE CHOSEN FOR THIS DESIGN, IT TAKES US BACK TO A BYGONE ERA WHEN ELECTRIC SEWING MACHINES WERE NOT AVAILABLE. IDEAL TO SEND TO SOMEBODY  WHO LOVES SEWING, YOU COULD ALSO PERSONALIZE IT AS WELL.

IT'S SATURDAY.........OR IS IT

MORNING ALL,

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN YOU COULD NOT WAIT FOR THE WEEKEND TO COME, TO HAVE SOME TIME OF WORK, BUT IT SEEM'S THAT NOW MOST PEOPLE WORK, IS THAT BECAUSE PEOPLE'S LIFESTYLE'S HAVE  CHANGED OVER THE YEARS, HAS LIFE BECOME MORE STRESSFUL OR IS THAT PEOPLE JUST WANT MORE.....WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE TO SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH STUFF, FOR WHAT REASON, DOES IT MAKE THERE LIVES  MORE MEANINGFUL OR IS IT PURELY FOR SHOW, ONE WILL NEVER KNOW. I CAN REMEMBER WHEN I WAS YOUNG I USED TO LOVE THE WEEKEND, IT WAS TIME SPENT AS A FAMILY, WE NEVER HAD LOTS OF MONEY WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, MYSELF AND MY BROTHER NEVER WENT WITHOUT DON'T GET ME WRONG, BUT WE ALWAYS SEEMED TO BE HAPPY, OR WAS IT JUST A FRONT WAS MY MUM AND DAD STRESSED AND THEY JUST HID FROM US.....I FEEL SORRY FOR PARENT'S TODAY WITH YOUNG CHILDREN, THE TELEVISION BRAINWASHES KIDS IN TO WANTING ALL THE LATEST GADGETS, AND PARENTS FEEL PRESSURED IN TO GETTING IT, WHY, SO THE KIDS CAN PLAY WITH IT FOR A WHILE AND THEN JUMP ON TO THE NEXT THING.....THERE IS NO CONVERSATION BETWEEN PARENTS AND CHILDREN TODAY, I WATCH MY OWN FAMILY, THE GRANDCHILDREN ARE STUCK BEHIND A COMPUTER GAME OR THE MOBILE TEXTING, AND THE PARENTS ARE TO STRESSED, BECAUSE THERE WONDERING HOW TO PAY FOR THIS LOT.... WHAT HAPPENED TO GOING OUT FOR WALK'S, OR HAVING A PICNIC, THEY JUST SEEM TO BE THINGS OF THE PAST, NOBODY HAS TIME ANYMORE, THEY ARE ALL TO BUSY, MAKE TIME THAT'S WHAT I SAY LIFE IS TO SHORT, AND AS THE SAYING GOES,
 TAKE TIME TO STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY 

I HAVE STYLED THIS AS AN ANNIVERSARY CARD BUT IT COULD BE USED FOR MOST OCCASIONS.
BASE CARD USED IS A LINEN EFFECT IN WHITE.
THE IMAGE OF THE LADY IS FROM A CD ROM BY PANTHEON ARTS.
AROUND THE EDGE OF THE CARD I HAVE INKED THE EDGES USING A TIM HOLTZ DISTRESSED INK PAD, IN EACH OF THE CORNERS I HAVE STAMPED A SCROLL AND CORNER DESIGN, IF YOU NOTICE I HAVE DONE THIS RANDOMLY AND THEY DO NOT ALL GO THE SAME WAY, THAT IS MY OWN CHOICE AS I DO NOT LIKE THINGS TO BE EXACT, OFFSET DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE CARD I HAVE PLACED TWO PURPLE GLITTERED STRIPS, AND THEN USED TWO PIECES OF PATTERNED PAPER  WITH A SIMILAR COLOUR TONE,AND PLACED THEM AT JAUNTY ANGLES OVER THE TOP OF THE STRIPS. THE IMAGE OF THE LADY HAS BEEN PRINTED ON TO A GLOSSY PHOTO PAPER, THAT I HAVE ALSO INKED THE EDGES OF, IT JUST SOFTENS THE DESIGN,IN THE CORNER OF THE IMAGE I PLACED UNDERNEATH ONE EDGE TWO STRIPS OF SILK RIBBON IN PALE LILAC AND ON THE TOP A SMALL LILAC HEART GEM, UNDERNEATH THE IMAGE AT THE TOP CORNER I HAVE USED TO PURPLE SKELETON LEAVES TO ADD SOME TEXTURE. THE SENTIMENT HAS BEEN PRINTED ON TO A LILAC PARCHMENT PAPER AND ATTACHED TO THE CARD USING A PURPLE BUTTERFLY GEM.
