There's the red balloons  and these two strolling up the incline of grass and daisies..beautiful blue skies, white fluffy clouds and a sparkly sun..

There's a side view..all coloured up with markers this time..

Thanks so much for stopping by and just in case you need a kitten they are..

Casper...Wickett...and Olivia...Wicketts eyes are a lot better and some days are really really good..and some days they are not...heading for 8 weeks and Casper leaves us on Tuesday..😢

Hello everyone...

Well, I didn't know and neither did anyone else until last Wednesday, and it was a boy..

I was prepared of course with 2 cards...

Both images are from a vintage baby photo site..and the girl one is from a card that my Mum got when I was born..eeek..I'm vintage.

A sleeping baby boy..perfect.

My cloud with hanging stars and moon was handy here and just added a few buttons and a bow.

Simple cute card..

A very cute little Girl here with  a beautiful square frame die which cut beautifully so I was very relieved about that.

Safety pin die cuts and a few tiny flowers and a bow and she is ready to go off somewhere when another stork appears.

Thanks so much for stopping by..phew it is stinkin' hot today..stay cool or warm where ever you are..

Hello Everyone...

I'm here today to share some inspiration by using and older and FABulous image from the SASAYAKI GLITTER STORE

This little sweetie is called VALENTINE ELLY

And who wouldn't want a heart from her..she is adorable and even though she is in love with a snail, it just goes to show how caring she is.

I just had to use my new " snail"  die and added lots of glossy accents on his shell..
Elly is all coloured up with markers.....her pot with Faber Castell pencils..

The lovely sentiment is from a clear set from my friend for Christmas and it is all lovey dovey sentiments... just right for Valentine next month....

Die cut some hanging hearts added white gel pen highlights and added the sentiment..

So there we go...thanks so much for stopping by..and I will see you soon..

Hello again and Happy New Year from me and CHRISTMAS CARDS ALL YEAR ROUND

Time for a new challenge on this 1st day of January 2018..and after all the lovely gifts and cards you received we thought how appropriate to get those Christmassy " Thank you " cards that is our theme this month..." Thank you "...but with a Christmas look..

For my project I used this terrific wee chap called Barry..from the now closed Stampfairy...

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and a red marker for his hat and scarf.....I added some string for him to steer his sled..

I'm sure he saw the thank you sign as he sped down that snowy slope....

Embossing folder swiss dots in the background and my lovely pine needle border die across the top...

Even managed to stick down a Merry Christmas word die and then remembered it was a thank you I could add under the sign " For a "..

So there we go...there is another post under this on if you wish to have a scroll...

Hello Everyone and a very Happy New Year 2018  to you all...

Welcome to the New Year and a new challenge at  CLASSIC DESIGN TEAM OPEN CHALLENGE

This month we are being sponsored by the wonderful SASAYAKI GLITTER  and the team were lucky to get some fabulous images to play with...

I am using LUCY AND BEE

She is so cute and fun to colour..I used my markers for colouring and a bit of pencil for shading....

Adding clouds and a Sun  with glitter card and my new Bee die which is enormous and pretty flowers...

My clouds are up side studied the photo and you see so many things that shouldn't be, but didn't see when you made the card..

Lots of wink of Stella and I did not squeeze it this time..

And this is " Casper"..4 weeks old...the only one who will sit in front of a grandaughter is having this one..

Thanks so much for stopping by...

Hello Everyone...

This was my conversation with the cat the other morning...

 " Good morning's the family this morning.."

" They are fine..don't fuss I haven't moved them or nothing.."[ but said in a meow because I cannot understand all the cat language yet..]

" Are you ready for breakfast? "...

" In a minute, got some stuff to do first"...

" Why are you in here you goose..I've got work before I can play...go see your babies or come have breakfast"..

.........................................................she was taking a long time coming out to the kitchen........

WHAT!!!!!...this is not the wardrobe...what have you been up to?...what are they doing in here?..

" They wanted to move here..tis true I tell you."..

" Oh, grief Holly..all over my lovely drapes...really!!...well, as long as you watch them and no messes, then you can all stay in here for now"...

Well, this lasted a week and few days and all was well............ until..............

This morning my day off and I got up and just the usual day... nothing to worry about and then realised the craftroom was very still and quiet...

OH NO!..yep, you guessed it....they had gone again...this time behind MY drapes in my bedroom..
I never took photos of that as was so quick in getting them out of there and into the dog cage I bought..

Mama is NOT impressed at all and several times she has had a kitten in her mouth carrying it out into the living room where she has a place up inside my couch to put them..I've been watching her getting in there for a few days now.

The kitties have their eyes open and wandering around..they can come and go from the cage but get locked up if I'm not home...just in case.

The white one has a home and so does the silver and grey tabby...the little runt on the bottom of the heap...well, his name is Wicket and he has bung eyes which I'm trying to treat and he is tiny compared to the others..they dont usually let him in their cuddle time, he sits out on his , yes, I'm keeping him.

They are so cute and so much fun to play with and have stolen my craft time away from me, but I don't care... they are only three weeks old..

So if I don't get back from now until Christmas..I could be in the dog house..I just want to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and all the very best for 2018..

See you in the new year...
