More Memories - part four

Hello. I am so pleased with myself! My memory keeping in my Sn@p album is pretty much up to date. I have decided that the secret is printing the pictures as soon as possible. Then they are good to go whenever you have a few spare minutes.

The first page are views of the trees and the path in the park that backs on to our house. This is where the dog gets walked everyday. The pages below are the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow and then yours truly fooling around. I can never resist popping my head into these cardboard cutouts (do they have a real name?) and this one matches my haunted home image perfectly.

You can see more of my album in this blog post here.

reach for the stars to the moon and back!

Hello. A little while back I won the monthly challenge over at Seven Hills Crafts. It was a voucher to spend in the shop and this was one of the stamps sets I chose. It's called 'little dreamers' byWplus9.
I have kept the cards fairly plain to show off the sweet images. Just a piece of patterned paper behind the image panel and a water colour wash on the diecut panel itself.

The landscape painting programme is back on the telly tonight. One hour of telly bliss!

Hello. This is a bit bold don't you think? At first I wasn't sure, but it's growing on me! The stamp and butterfly die is by Waffle Flower ' enveloper little birdie'. I coloured using my ZIg Real Brush markers.

I am entering my card into the challenge over at Creative Inspirations - Autumn/Halloween.

beaded snowflakes

Hello. At my monthly Craftaholics meeting I made these! Three new snowflake decorations for my tree. Surprisingly quick and easy once you know how, my demonstrator did a wonderful job of teaching me!

Next month it's felted angels, can't wait. Will let you know how I get on!

magazine article

Have you seen this on the shelves? It's a bumper boxed kit packed with inspiration for Christmas. As well as the magazine, which includes my article on shaker cards, you get loads of crafty goodies. An A4 stamp set, 7 dies, an embossing folder and loads of papers.

Did I Miss the Cake?

Hello. By the look on the little bears face he certainly did miss the cake! The stamp set is 'Friends for All Seasons - Fall' by Wplus9. I bought it (and another, but more of that later) with the voucher I won over at the Seven Hills Crafts monthly challenge.

So, it seems only right and proper that I should enter this card into their new challenge which is a fabby sketch....
