Trick or Treat

Happy Halloween Everyone !

Well, I've had a bit of a lazy day upto now. The cats woke me up early, so I decided to get up, totally forgot the clocks had changed and it was ten to six when I put the telly on. Had a quick tidy up down stairs then I've been crafting. My Hubby has just offered to take me out, so going to get out of my PJ's and get dressed. Don't know where we are off to yet but it will finish half term off a treat.


I used : Mo Manning digi image (Think it was a Freebie a while ago)
           Paper mania paper (had these forever)
           Martha Stewart punches
           Spellbinders Labels 1
           Spider Rings from Asda
           Digi sentiment ( not sure where from, for some reason I didn't make a note
           of  it, doh!  )
           WH Smith pencils & Sansodor for shading.

I'm entering this into Pear Tree Designs Halloween.

Hope you all have a lovely afternoon and get wrapped up warm, if your off out tonight  trick or treating.

A boy and his dog

Had a great time today at the Stampmagic papercraft show at Doncaster Dome. Bought some lovely new stash although not had a chance to play with it yet. I have had this Mo Manning digi image for ages. It's called Bronte and Louis and I think it was a freebie generously posted by Mo on PapercraftPlanet.

My Grandson Bradley's, childminder has a little dog called Bailey and Bradley loves to feed him biscuits.
This cute image really reminds me of the two of them.

Rosie posy

Had a good day today, work went quick, probably because we were busy. Called at Mums and  my  brother  Brian was there ( Hi there, Wizbit!) I always enjoy his company and we are so close. He was  suprised I had set up a blog, as  I'm a real technophobe and now he's following me, just like when we were kids lol.

Enjoyed a lovely couple of hours tonight at Busy Bees Crafts  making cards and now I've got my feet up with a coffee and a bag of bonfire toffee.

Love this LOTV image. Downloaded the sentiment ticket from A Load of Old Blogocks  Caz has a brilliant blog and is so talented.

I was really inspired by Juls beautiful  pink and green combo on her amazing Flower Power card. Love your blog Juls. 

It also reminded me that i had the free papers from a card mag that I hadn't used much of. Just had to get them out again.

Tilda is my absolute favourite little character and although I have had this one a while I haven't inked her up much since I first got her.

I used:Kanban Card

           Paper roses from The Works

Got the house to myself for a few hours and I'm in no hurry to do the ironing so think i'm gonna get some colouring out and watch the Gilmore Girls.

Sunny Sunday

It's a lovely bright day here in Sheffield, not a cloud in the sky, although just hung out the washing in my pj's and it's quite chilly. Even so, the sun always brightens me up. Gonna have a quick tidy up, then I intend sitting with a coffee and having a long look at all of your lovely blogs. Thank you for all your kind offers of help, I know I will definately be taking you all up on this as i feel like a fish out of water at the moment. A very excited one, I might add.

Thought this card was quite apt for today.

My Happy Place

I have been dithering about setting up a blog for over a year now. I met the really lovely and very talanted Lisa today at Busy bees crafts whilst she was demonstrating promarker techniques. She encouraged me to create a blog. Hi Lisa, great to meet you today, sounds like you've had another busy demo.

My Happy Place was actually our spare room but it's now where I spend most of my spare time and can easily get lost in there for hours.
