What i did today

Hi everyone,

Today I ment Princess Ann, at my local St John office where we were having an open day. I Chatted with her, shock her hand & waved a flag. She's a very nice lady.

So now i've met:

Lawarnce luelene bowyn (chated and hugged)
The Queen (Saluted)
Princess Ann (chatted, shook hand, waved a flag cheered)

I wonder who's next??

Right now I'm in pain, my shoulders gone funny, i'm cold & ace all over. I will say more later for now i need food, drink, and sleep.

Take care all and happy crafting.

More about what i get up to

Well i did mention i do Photography on my about me bit. So i though i had better show some photos.

Here's two robing having a chat about who gets the dried mealworm. Taken at work and within four foot of them.
And here' s another Robin at work having a sing song in a tree.

My photos are mostly of wildlife from home and work, I also go to country shows get photos of horses, dogs and other animals. Sometimes i get a tad to close to the action......

......and other times i stick my neck out

But i get out ok. I love wildlife so much i will do any thing for a good photo.

I love getting close so i can see the white of the subjects eyes, Which can lead to a lot of fun. And someone hanging on to me.

So like the above remember to keep smiling, have fun and happy crafting.

Take care.

Todays Cards

Well here's today's selection. Appol's for the lateness of this I've been at work most of the day (hurra for overtime)!! trying to catch up on a rather large backlog of work. The only good thing about the work, was that we did not have to keep stop starting due to running a helpline at the same time. It's guarantied the minute you start something you need to concentrate on the phone rings and you have to stop and start something new.

Plus I'm getting nervous over submiting design ideas to Spiral whispers, I so hope that they like what i sent in. I cant wait to find out agagagagagaga my nerves!!!!!!!

Any way enough with the rabbles on with the cards.

First off a Christening stamp using one of the new Cherri sh Teddy stamp brought at the Alli Paly this year, when i went with my Best Friend Sarah. I also used Sticky gems, Silver sticker words and borders, with Light blue Mottled card stock.

Next A Gothic Rose birthday card.
Made with a Red base card, Gold card stock, Gold sticker lettering, Do crafts stick ribbon, and Sizzix die cut rose.
I hope you like so far.
Take care & happy crafting to everyone.

More of my work

Well i hope everyone's having a good time. I'm busy as always at work and at home. I thought i should show you some thing I have been working on for ages.
Yep these are bookmarks, handmade and drawn, due to the fact i'm still learning to draw on the computer. Backed on to plain coloured card & Laminated. They are draw at the size of the bookmark so rather weeny detail. I had asked for a pro company to do the work, but things got legal, and then they lost the original work. For a year i heard nothing till chance came that they were returned to me. (Hugs paper work). So I'm never letting go of the originals again.
Anyway what do people think? Made with :
  • Tria Markers
  • Bristol Board
  • Indian Ink
  • Gold, Silver & Bronze gel pens
Any feed back or questions are appreciated.
Take care everyone and happy drawing/crafting

Pics Ahoy!!!!

Hi everyone,
Ok here we go, my first pic.
A Book of Tricks i made of late. I have been trying to use some of the huge supplies of stickers/ peal offs i have. I thought these ones go well mounted on each other with foam squares seems to just give it that little bit of depth. I also used a Penny Black Stamps on foam squares.

I prefer simple layout that are gentle on the eyes and i think this book of tricks meets this. I enjoy making these bookatricks and hope to have lots more soon, though i find the colour matching hard i hope to get better soon.

I hope you like. Take care and happy crafting.
