Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Have i got any hair left???

I've been tearing my hair out all morning trying to make this card. I thought i'd just go and make mums birthday card, then i can play with my new Lili of the Valley baby stamps. no such thing!! You see i made the mistake of colouring it in on sunday before choosing a backing paper. I've got so many chopped up sheets of pink papers it's unbelievable, nice ones at that too.They all looked wrong, so i had to change my card size and shape and eventually came up with this.
Her birthday's not until wednesday but i wanted to get it done today. I've been hankering after this stamp for ages and finally sent for it a couple of weeks ago.I thought a bit of frivolity was just the ticket for a 90th birthday girl.
Here's a close up so you can see all the splodges of glitter glue which isn't dry yet. I'm not proud, lol.The image is Penny Black by the way. The card base is 5"x7".
 I'm so hungry, i haven't eaten anything yet today and i've only just noticed. I'm doing well on the treadmill by the way, 3 miles this morning brisk walking, it seems to be getting easier. Oh here's a laugh for you!! It has 3 quick speed settings which just take you straight to 3, 6, and 9 miles an hour. Well as i was on 5 anyway i thought, i wonder how fast 6 is and pressed it. Oh my giddy aunt, i had to break into a run and it took me ages to dare to let go of the handles to put it back to 3! I won't be doing that again i tell ya. I'd best go and get something to eat now before i eat mother's card.  Di.xx
