Not been on in a while

Hi everyone, sorry I've not been online in a while and I do promise to do catch up with you all and update my blog at some point, once we got the Christmas out of the way, Ian had his on and off days then last week my poor Dad had a fall in his sheltered flat, he fractured his arm and is still in hospital. They need to make sure he is steady on his feet before they let him home.

I'm not sure if anyone else has been getting comments form an Anonymous which they've been trying to leave really sexual explicit comments on my postings they have also been trying to leave links on my blog posts too. I'm just glad I've had my Comment Moderator on and had a chance to rejected them all.......I've had a total of 20 up till now. If these are not computer generated comment's then who ever is leaving these please stop as i will not allow them on my blog.

For those who don't have your comments monitored I would suggest you put your comment protection on.

Ian's Home

Good Evening bloggers, just to let you all know that Ian is now home, things went well but he's in a lot of pain with the procedure he had and he's not a happy chappy because he's got to go back into hospital in a fortnights time to have a stent hopefully when things settle and my mind is my own again, I'll be back adding my cards.

I would also like to thank everyone for all your support over the last two years.

Not been on in a while

Good Morning bloggers, once again I'm sorry for neglecting you all I will do my best to catch up on all your blogs.

For those who know about my husbands condition he is about to go back into hospital on Tuesday 29th to see if this other procedure please keep every thing crossed that it does work this time.

Here are a few parchment cards I've managed to do hope you like them.

Made this Dragon Parchment for my Brother ....he loved it

this parchment one was made for the forum challenge and I couldn't believe I won....

The eagle parchment was for my other Brother who's a tatooist but I don't think I coloured the eagles body very's more of a colouring parchment using my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils in the same way you would use your parchment tools.
but he loved it......xx

I was just playing and thought I'd try to do more patterns to get some practice in so made these two, as you can see I added butterflies to the red one mistakes do happen lol.

Thank you for viewing my cards and blog

Orders as well as Playing .....

Evening everyone......hope you are all well.........things here are just the same so can't really give you anything exciting....apart from our New Asda's floor moves.....what a fright I got. I felt so sea sick I can tell you.

I've managed to get some orders done at last.........and yes it's the bookatrix and Car once again they are so popular .......I even got a freebie from Phil at Arty Farty.........he sent me the new Dashboard for the car....he said its not on the website yet but will be soon for those of you who have Colin Car...I've also manged to have a play too with my new stamps Whiff of Joy and the Tilda from the Sea that I won on Bev's Saturday candy.

I just have to put a verse on then it's finished. I used my Memories Slice Machine to do the flourish and heart.

I love making these Car's but they do seem to take forever

This is the Dashboard I got as a free sample from Phil at Arty comes in Brown and Black and I think it really finishes it off nicely.

Now for my water colouring .....I love doing these I find it so relaxing and I hope I've done them justice
I bought this cutie stamp from my local Arts and Craft shop

I just love this Whiff of Joy stamp. I think she's so elegant yet cute. I made it for my good friend Shirley from Sunderland as the other one I made her got all squished and damaged in the post.

This is my lovely Tilda in the Sea stamp that I won from Bev's Saturday Candy. She is soooo adorable (Thank you Bev and Heidi from Simon say's Stamps)
The papers I used are the Glitter Sweet Stack which I bought from the Papermill shop.

Thank you for taking the time to pop by

Update on Ian's procedure

Hi everyone not been on for a while, I've had loads of things going on so hopefully I'll catch up with my blog hopping when I come in from work tonight....

I would like to thank everyone for their emails and pm's regarding Ian's second procedure, I had to ring the Hospital this morning because Ian has gone over his fortnight and they told me that they have provisionally booked him into Hospital for 26th July, and will have his procedure on the 28th...just have to wait for confirmation if there's going to be a bed for him..
Hopefully all going well It will work this time.

Thank you for your kindness and support.
