Happy Anniversary

Good morning. Another quick post and another quick card.  I had to make this in a hurry so I could catch the postman.  He always collects anything I have  for posting.  Great guy!!

My Card


Recipe
6" square base card
 Heart trellis e/f -  Crafts Too
large heart die - Hobbycraft Intricut dies
Small heart die - Nellie Snellen
butterfly die - Spellbinders

Yet another simple card.  One of these days my mojo will return but he's certainly taking a long time about it.   Occasionally I come up with something reasonable but for the last year or so that has been a very infrequent occurrence. Ah well, I'll just keep on keeping on as they say.

Take care.

70th Birthday

Good morning.  I was so excited yesterday because we had rain!! The well is full and all the water butts are full and my plants all look so fresh and nourished.  It doesn't take much to please me ... lol!  Now I  would still like more rain but it can rain overnight and then we will all be happy!

My Card


Recipe
white cardstock - from stash
pink centura pearl - Crafters Companion
Create a Card die  - Die'sire
Etched Alphabet & Numbers  - Spellbinders
Oval Bliss - Spellbinders
pearls - from stash

I created a side fold step card from A4 card stock and die cut the Create a Card die into the main piece which I then backed with Centura pearl. I needed it to be quite flat for posting and luckily it didn't need too much more adding to it. Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the die because I took it out of the original wrapping and popped it onto a magnetic sheet and promptly misplaced the piece with the name on. Since that was a couple of years ago now I know it will definitely not turn up again!

Well I hope you are all well and enjoying life.

Take care.

Christmas Activities

Good morning.  Time for our little Christmas Card Club to produce another card in our quest to keep ourselves well ahead of the game and come December there will be no sense of panic or urgency.  This time Maureen is hosting and she wants to see something to do with activities at Christmas such as  sleighing, sledging, skiing etc.

My Card



Recipe
6" square base card - Rymans
silver mirri and glitter card - Crafters Companion
Wintertide die - Amy Designs 




I chose this die because there are skis leaning against the tree and ice skates hanging from the lamp post so I've ticked two boxes. All the mirri and glitter makes it very Christmas-sy - but very difficult to photograph.  Ah well, I know that in real life it looks very pretty.

I like these smaller sentiment dies.  The large ones are great to make a statement on a card but sometimes just  a tad to big for smaller cards.

Well I hope you have been enjoying your weekend.

Take care.

Love and Hugs Christine xx

For The Boys

Good morning and I hope this finds you all well.  This is my DT card for MAWTTSharon has chosen the theme this time and her choice is "For The Boys". 


My Card


Recipe
A5 card base -bronze card from stash
ribbed old gold card - from stash
toppers  - old stash
embellishments - old stash


I made this card a while ago but I am sure I never published it and I have gone back a long time on my blog trying to find it. I remember having to make it it in a great rush because I had the birthday of one of John's friends and needed something in a desperate hurry so that he could take it down to his friend;  hence all the toppers and peel off greeting!   I just love those nautical toppers.

Well we had the much needed rain last week and my water butts are full again but I think they will soon be empty again because there's been nothing since.  But the grass is just starting to green up again.
Please pop over to the blog and find out what my team mates have made for this male challenge.

Take care.
 

Love and Hugs Christine xx

Christmas Traditions at IAAS

Well here I am for the third day in a row - and the third Christmas card too.  This is my DT card for International Art and Soul. The theme of  the challenge is Christmas Traditions so I chose  sending Christmas cards. Initially I was going to use carol singing then remembered that was the theme of the Christmas Card Club.  Three Christmas cards in a row in such heat.  Crazy!!


If you are looking for my CCC card please scroll down to previous post.

My Card


Recipe
white card stock for base - Anna Marie Designs
red card stock - Rymans
patterned paper - Home For Christmas: Papermania
topper - Lili of the Valley
large poinsettia die - Creative Expressions
small poinsettia - Marianne Designs 
sentiment die - Creative Expressions

I have been playing around with fun fold cards this week and this one is called an Impossible Card.  Clearly it isn't impossible just clever cutting and folding.  John was amazed when I showed him and he was sure I had stuck two pieces together.  It really does look very effective and especially since it is made from a single piece of card 7" x 5".  It folds totally flat for posting and the finished size is 7" x 6" but this depend on the size of the topper you apply.

Well that's all from me today.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Take care.

Carol Singing for the Christmas Card Club

Good morning.  These two weeks soon come around.  This time Margaret has chosen our theme which is Christmas Choir or Carol Singing.

My Card


Recipe
5" x 7" base card 
blue cardstock - Limetree Craft
image - In The Lamplight LOTV
Falling Snow e/f - Creative Expressions
Lacey Circles dies - Spellbinders
Sentiment stamp - Little Claire

Another simple card.  This year, except for the special cards for family and friends, I am trying to keep my cards simple - and flat as far as possible, although I did raise the topper with foam pads this time.

This Simply Print image from LOTV is one of my favourites. It always reminds me of my sister and I when we were children.  I always had long hair whereas Jeanie's was short and mine was  much fairer than hers. And we were always singing, both together and in a choir. Alas, memories are all I have now sadly, but they cannot be taken away.

This card is not due until tomorrow but as usual I am posting early to avoid clashing with a DT card on Sunday.  

Well we finally had some rain yesterday evening - all three drops of it ... lol ! 😀 😁  It's like the Sahara Desert.  I'm sure it will come eventually - I've been doing my rain dance every day but not worked so far.

We had a lovely day out yesterday with WI when we went to Marlow and Henley on Thames. We decided on a boat trip on the Thames at Henley assuming it would be cooler on the river but not so. But it was a great day all round with lots of laughs.

Well that's it for today.  Enjoy your weekend.

Take care.

Christmas Gifts at Winter Wonderland

Good morning.  Time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland.  The theme this time was chosen by Hazel and she wants to see a gift or gifts on your project.

We are sponsored by LeAnns World 101. The prize on offer is two digi images so why not pop across to the blog and see what the other members of the Snowflakes Team have made and you may be inspired to join in our challenge.

Don't forget that we are Christmas challenge only so your card, or other project, needs to be associated with the festive season.

My Card

 outside of card

Recipe

green card - Hunkdory
sponsor's digi image - Santa's Helper
sentiment stamp - Little Claire Designs
Falling Snow e/f - Creative Expressions
Petite scalloped circles - Spellbinders
Promarkers to colour

I have been playing around with some new card folds this week and this is the first one which is called a double fold triangle and I found it on Split Coast Stampers.  Not the easiest to photograph I'm afraid but I think you'll get the idea.

You start off with a piece of cardstock 8.5" x 11" and you can get two cards from this one piece. The finished card is 5.5" x 4.5" but I think sometimes it is nice to have some smaller cards.

Just a quick post today but I hope everybody is well and still enjoying this fine spell of weather.

Take care.

WOW for Christmas Card Club

It is my turn to choose the theme for our little club and I have gone for White on White, or a smidgen of colour as long as the card or project is mainly white.

In fact I had to use a bit of colour myself.  My plan was to use all white with white glitter card.  However, my white glitter card was so very different to the very white cardstock I used for the card that it looked totally out of place, so I swapped it to silver and I'm much happier with it.

My Card

Recipe
A5 base card
silver non shed glitter card - Hobbycraft
Snow Crystal die - Crafters Companion
Let it Snow die - Crafters Companion
ribbon- from stash
gems - from stash
I placed bot dies on a piece of cardstock and die cut them together.  All it needed than was mounting onto the glitter card and the base card  and the ribbon and gems adding.

Unfortunately I think my garden is going to have to fend for itself - in other words my flowers are probably all going to die due to the heat and lack of rain.  We have five 230 litre water butts which are all empty, plus another two dustbins of water which are also empty.  I have moved as many of the pots and tubs under the car port as I can so that they at least have some shade and won't need as much water.

The immersion heater arrived this morning so I was looking forward to a shower later. Yay!  Cheered too soon! When John opened the parcel they had sent the wrong one!  Grrrr!!!!!  Boiling kettles to wash is a real pain.  We have been promised it by Tuesday now.  Unbelievable isn't it?  John ordered a specific one, the invoice was for the same make immersion but a smaller size and the actual immersion heater they sent was a totally different one from a different manufacturer - the mind boggles.  How can you make three mistakes on an order of one item?

Well I hope you are all surviving the heat and that your gardens are doing better than mine ... lol.

Take care.

Male Theme at MAWTT

Good morning and I hope everybody is well and enjoying this superb weather.  I have no problem with the sun (well, that's not true because I burn very easily) but my major problem is no rain for the past six weeks!  Does the world not know that my water supply comes from a well and we are running short!! Help! And to cap it all the immersion heater blew up the other day and so we are unable to heat the water except by boiling kettles.  Luckily the new one is on order and should be here in a couple of days then John will get to work fixing it. It's great being married to a man who can do all this work and so never have to worry about tradesmen.

Anyway, now to my card for this months challenge at MAWTT,; the theme chosen by  Jackie is to make your project male themed. I never have enough male cards in my stash so this is good for me..

My Card

 Recipe
7" x 5" black base card - Rymans card
topper, backing paper and gold cogs - Kanban
gold mirri card - Crafter's Companion

I was rooting around in my drawers (as you do) and I found some ancient stash which was perfect for putting together this very quick steam punk male card. I'm sorry the picture is so dark.  The sun was so bright it was really difficult to get a decent picture.

Why not pop across to the blog and see what my the rest of my team mates have come up with?

That's all from me for now.

Take care.

Candy Canes for the Christmas Card Club

Good morning.  It's time for or little club to produce another card and this time Lorraine is our host and she would like to see candy canes or gingerbread.

My Card


I used an image from Greeting Card Factory De Luxe which I matted and layered onto green and then white card before affixing to a red base card. The sentiment is one of the new Sue Wilson mini dies and the pearls are from my stash.

Are you all enjoying the summer weather? My problem is that we have had no rain at all for nearly three weeks now and no sign of it in the near future either. It's a bit of a worry if you don't have mains water - especially when I'm wanting to keep my plants well watered.   Ah well, the joys of living in the country eh?

I'm off to a wedding this afternoon. Our WI choir (including moi) will be singing because it is the wedding of one of our members.  Hope we don't mess it up!

Take care and have a good weekend.

Make It Square

Good morning and I hope this finds you all well and enjoying the summer weather.

Sorry I have been MIA but we booked a very last minute holiday and just took off.  I nevr advertise on social media that I am not at home because you just never know who is looking in do you? We went to the most beautiful 400 year old cottage in Monmouthshire. It had been modernised sympathetically inside and was very light and airy with large rooms and plenty of space.

It's time for another challenge at Winter Wonderland  and this time it is very easy.  Pat K is hosting our challenge and she wants to see only square cards.

We are sponsored by Twinkle Lane Designs and there are some super digi images and digi papers. Please remember that we are a Christmas challenge only, so to be eligible for a prize your project must be Christmas related.

My Card


Recipe
6" blue square base card
digi paper - Unique Snowflakes from sponsor
digi image - Snow Family from sponsor
pearls from stash

Why not pop over to the blog and see what the rest of the Snowflakes Team have made with these lovely images.

Take care.

Not Square or Oblong

Good morning.   This is my DT card for International Art and Soul.  The remit was to make a card which was not square or oblong.  Now I know this is pretty much oblong but I hope the fancy edges make it okay!!

My Card


Recipe
ivory and lavender Centura Pearl - Crafter's Companion
Laced Bow Easel creator die - Tonic Studios
Twig leaf die - Sue Wilson
Numbers/letters dies - Spellbinders 
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment - computer generated 
ribbon and pearls from stash

This set of dies makes such a great card and no matter what colour combo you use it looks fabulous.

I was asked to make this card for the oldest member of our WI and she is absolutely amazing.  Most of our group are so much younger but Myrtle mixes so well with everybody and gets so involved it's hard to believe her age!!!  She is also just recovering from major surgery - and I really mean major but again she didn't let it get her down.

I was asked to use this die or something similar because they had seen another card I had made with it which impressed them.  I was able to kill two birds with one stone and use this card for the IAAS challenge.  We are a Just For Fun challenge but why not pop across to the blog and see what my teamies have produced and maybe you will join in and show us your shaped cards.

Hope the weather improves for the Bank Holiday but here in our part of Oxfordshire it has been a pretty dire couple of days.

Take care.

Add Your Heart at Winter Wonderland

Sorry I'm late with this post.  Over the past couple of days I have been riddled with problems and yesterday we had no electricity for eight hours!!!  Eight hours, can you believe it?  Ah well, we survived by getting out the camping stove to boil water for drinks and eating cold cereal and sandwiches.  John had withdrawal symptoms with no porridge! And also no computer or internet!!!!

Time for another challenge at Winter Wonderland and the theme is "All hearts come home for Christmas"  where you will need to add at least one heart on our Christmas project.

My Card

 Recipe
6" square red base card
papers - Papermania "Home For Christmas"
image - Leila Decorating
die - The Works"

Our sponsor this time is Sasayaki Glitter and the prize on offer for the winner is  one digi of the winner's choice. Why not pop over to the blog and see what the rest of the Snowflakes Team has produced and maybe you will want to join in the challenge.

Well it has certainly been an extremely wet day today after all the lovely warm/hot sunny days so I certainly hope the sun will be back soon.

Take care and enjoy the Bank Holiday Weekend.

All About The Boys at International Art and Soul

Good morning and hope everybody is well and happy.  My card today is for IAAS.  We are a Just For Fun challenge blog and we post every second Sunday.  The DT take it in turns to choose the theme and this time it is the turn of my good friend Planet Susie.  Unfortunately Sue is unwell and unable to take part in her challenge so I hope we have done her proud.  She wants to see cards for the men or boys in our lives.

Please scroll down to previous post if you are looking for my 
Christmas Card Club card.
My Card


Recipe
6" square kraft card base.
papers -  Father Knows Best (disc) LOTV
Banner dies - The Works
Nesting Star dies - Sweet Dixie
sentiment - computer generated

It's always good to have a masculine card tucked away in your box of cards I think.  These dies from The Works are such good value and cut beautifully.

Of late my cards have all been very simple but I guess that's not always a bad thing.  My mojo went walkabout months ago and hasn't found his way back yet. Until he does I'll just plod along producing what I can when I can.

I spent a few hours in the garden on Saturday so the beds are all ready for the bedding plants to be planted up.  I also used the weed killer on the gravel borders and all the patios. Now I remember why I always leave this job for John !!  Gosh my shoulders are letting me know how heavy that flipping back pack set up is!!  John is on antibiotics for a chest infection so isn't feeling 100% so Mrs H to the rescue.  If I'd remembered how heavy it was I'd have left it for him when he was better ... lol!!  Just kidding!

Please pop across to the blog and see what my teamies have produced and maybe you will feel inspired to join us.

Take care and enjoy what remains of the weekend.

Sentiment As Focus for Christmas Card Club

Goo d morning to you all and thanks for dropping by.  I can't believe how quickly these two weeks pass and now it's time for our next challenge in the Christmas Card Club.  Carol is hosting this this time and she wants us to use the sentiment as the focus of our card.  Suits me down to the ground.

My Card


Recipe
5" x 7" white base card
white card stock - Rymans
pearlescent card stock - Jelly Bean Crafts
embossing folder - Chain Link from Couture Creations
die - Sue Wilson
bottom edge -Martha Stewart Cherish punch 

I decided to use a non-Christmas embossing folder for a change.  I think it looks quite masculine which is a bonus since I send a few to males on their own.

This card is not due until tomorrow but I have a DT card to post then so whenever possible I try to post this one a day early.  

Hope you enjoy the weekend, though I think the weather has changed now.

Take care.

Sentiment Only - No Image at MAWTT

I must apologise to Wendy and team A.  This post was scheduled for yesterday and I didn't realise until last night that it hadn't been published . I'm really not sure what happened but here I am at last, albeit a day late!

Good morning. It is my turn to host the challenge at MAWTT and as you can see I asked the team to use a quote/sentiment on their card with no image at all.  I just love to add quotes to my work and I much prefer it to images.  Please pop over to the blog and see what Team A have come up with for my challenge.

My Card


Recipe
5" x 7" white base card
pink pearlescent card - Crafters Companion
Hunkydory large topper - Quotes and Wisdom
ribbon and pearls from stash

A very simple card but with a lovely sentiment.

I hope you are all still enjoying the lovely weather.  Long may it last - but unfortunately it probably won't be too much longer before the weather breaks. Till then we'll just have to make the most of it.
I have been quite busy sorting things out in the garden and planting bedding plants and planters. 

Well that's it from me.  

Take care.

Christmas Wreaths For CCC

Good morning, and what a wet few days we've been having. April is certainly living up to it's reputation. We were so lucky on Thursday when we visited  Kelmscott Manor and had such lovely sunshine.

Rita is hosting our challenge at the Christmas Card Club this time and she wants to see Christmas Wreaths.

Card # 1


This is a 7" x 5" card using an LOTV image.  I used lashings of glitter which doesn't show up at all on the picture but actually looks lovely.  At Christmas I always wish my front door was red - they always show up a wreath so well I feel. Or maybe a nice shiny black.

Card # 2


This is a small 4" x 6" card.  I found this image in the Christmas images section of my Greeting Card Factory de Luxe and thought the fruit made a welcome change from holly etc.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Snow Much Fun

Good morning.  Hope you are all well.  Yesterday I had a fabulous day out with the WI to Kelmscott Manor, the inspirational Cotswold retreat of William Morris near Lechlade.  We stopped off at Burford first and had lunch there then went on to the Manor where we had booked an exclusive visit and tour.  William Morris was an extremely interesting man and we saw some beautiful stuff there. It was a bright sunny day, albeit a little chilly, but it was nice not to have any rain.

This is my DT card for Winter Wonderland.  Our sponsor is Sheepski Designs. The prize on offer for the winner is three digi images.

My Card


Recipe 
6"square blue base card - Hobbycraft
DSP  Frosty Christmas - LOTV (disc)

DSP Frosty Christmas - LOTV (disc)
pierced noble squares - Sue Wilson
snow flake dies - The Works
 sentiment - computer generated 

We would love it if you popped over to the blog to see what the rest of the Snowflakes Team and maybe you will feel inspired to join in the challenge. It's never too early to start your Christmas cards!

Take care and have a lovely day.

Paper Piecing at IAAS

Good morning and I hope this finds you well.

My post today is to showcase my paper pieced card for International Art and Soul.

My Card


Recipe
7" x 5" base card - ivory pearlescent card
quilt die - cheap die from China
papers - Christmas papers
silk flower from stash

I diecut the die three times in different papers - I used Christmas papers (I think from LOTV) although they don't really look Christmas-sy. Then came the fiddly fun part of putting it altogether and gluing the pieces.  It means I can now do another two cards in a different pattern.

We are a Just For Fun Challenge Blog but we would love you to pop over to the blog and check out what my DT sisters have made. I think we all had fun with this.

Take care and see you again soon.

Christmas Flowers and Greenery at CCC

Good morning and hope you are well.  Seeing the sunshine makes such a difference doesn't it?  Makes you feel good after all the rain and mist and fog. Yesterday was lovely and apparently it will be like this all week.

It's time for our little Christmas Card Club to produce another card.  This time Mary is our host and want to see poinsettias or other Christmas greenery.  I have managed three cards, all fairly CAS and I think I have covered Mary's remit pretty well.

Card 1

Recipe
5" x 7" base card 
green card stock - Rymans
Festive embossing folder - Sheena Douglass
Trailing ivy dies - Sue Wilson
digi image - from stash 
red pearls from stash

Holly and ivy definitely counts as Christmas greenery and I haven't used this image for a few years so it was time for it to reappear.

Card 2


Recipe
6" square base card
gold card stock - Anna Marie Designs
image - Greeting Card Factory Deluxe 
 Sentiment stamped in white
pearls from stash

 I love the hellebores and berries on this image and the bunnies look very sweet - but believe me that was not what I was thinking when the little blighters were digging in my lawn yesterday morning! The joys of living in the country.

Card 3


Recipe
4" x 6" base card
red card stock - Rymans 
image - Greeting Card Factory Deluxe
sentiment - computer generated

This one shows the poinsettias that Mary asked for plus a few extra flowers. 

Well I hope you are enjoying some good weather where you are.  I was out doing some tidying up in the garden yesterday. It was looking very messy.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

It's Spring Time At MAWTT

Good morning and many apologies to both Wendy, our fearless leader, and Diane Louise who is hosting this challenge at MAWTT, for my tardiness.

My Card

Recipe
6 inch square base card
white, purple and lemon card - Rymans
Garden Lattice e/f - Spellbinders
large rose flower die - Brittania dies
Leaf sprigs - Sue Wilson
gems - one of the pound stores
topper - Greeting Card Factory Deluxe

I don't know about Spring Has Sprung - I think spring has actually sprung a leak!  I'm a wee bit fed up of all the rain now. And I don't like the mist and fog we have had for the last day or two either.  I'm beginning to turn into a whiner!!

Why not pop across to the blog and see what the rest of Team A have made for Diane Louise's challenge. You might decide to join in with us.

Hope everybody is keeping well.  Enjoy the weekend.

Take care.

Another Golden Wedding

Good morning.  Today I am showing a card that my friend asked me to make for her neighbours who have just celebrated their golden wedding.

My Card 


I used the Tonic Laced Bow easel card die which I bought last year and never used.  Naughty girl!  I used ivory card stock and gold mirri card. The flowers and leaves are Delicate Asters from Heartfelt Creations. I really love these dies.  The numbers are Spellbinders. The ribbon and pearls were from my stash and I computer generated the sentiment.

Sorry for such a quick post today but I hope it finds you all well.
