Rural England

In a very British week it seems only right to show you a card with a scene which reminds us why we love our  country. This is 'Rural England' ...a decoupage sheet from La Pashe which I've made up and used on one of the Drawer Easel cards... also from La Pashe, and available in either Pastels or 'Red,White and Blue'.  These are sooooo easy to make and turn a card into a lovely gift.
 I'd love to be sitting in the garden of a quaint old thatched cottage... with a nice cup of tea and a good book. Instead I'm huddled indoors with the rain lashing down outside!!  Well...we can't have it all now can we? :)

Have a good weekend...whatever you're doing xx

Pickles & Podge from La Pashe

What a nightmare! I've had PC troubles... and as for blogger....I've not been able to get pictures on here for weeks...and I don't know whether you hear it too, but when I load my blog I get yukky music/adverts going on in the background somewhere and I can't find out where it's coming from :( new PC and one old blog that's 'feeling a bit better' (but still got annoying music) later and I can post!! Yay! :)
I can finally show you these absolutely gorgeous little guys from La Pashe...Pickles and Podge...just how adorable are they? Huh? Huh??  :)

Mo's Challenge #131 - Flowers

Yuk, yuk, yuk!!! So much rain...soooooo cold!!! Hard to believe we were all in Tshirts and sunglasses a couple of weeks ago! Good job we have crafting to give us a reason to stay in the long as you've put your heating back on that is!! ;) The girls are back at school...and I'm back to the gym!! Yay!! The closest to 'normality' I'm going to get I think!! :)
This week for Mo's Challenge we have a hugely popular theme...FLOWERS...designer papers...bought flowers...punched...crochet...knitted...pressed....Mo image with flowers on!!
I've used the gorgeous 'Kisses' image...coloured with Prisma and Polychromo pencils on Kraft...along with floral dp and daisies.

***Mo's brand new book 'Laundry Day'  is now available from Amazon!!    My copy has just arrived and it's A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!  :) xxx

Mo's Challenge #130

Good morning!
It's Thursday again and therefore Mo challenge day! This week the theme is 'I see Spots'...and with so many dotty papers...punches and 3D pearls and pearl pens...the world's your oyster! I made a birthday card for my daughter Emily's 17th birthday...she's a real 'purple' fan, and I just had to use this fitting image as I sent them off to see 'Mirror Mirror' at the cinema the other day which, if you didn't know, is a film based on Snow White. Snow my thinking lol
I have once again used my fav combo at the moment...Kraft with Prismacolor and Polychromo pencils...the image is 'Bite' from the wonderfully talented Mo...
Papers - the new Boofle range...and
3D dots made with 'My Paper World' Pearl Pens from Dragonfly Designs  (they stay like pearls and don't 'peak')

Hope you all had a Happy Easter time...and enjoy the rest of the week if you're off school. Just one more term and it'll be Summer Hols!! YIP!!! :)

Mo's Challenge #129

Good morning from a not so sunny Surrey today! I shouldn't complain really...we've had some gorgeous weather recently, and as us lucky ones woke to another morning of glorious sunshine yesterday, I had a number of friends further north who woke to....SNOW!!!!  Totally crazy...yet still I love the  UK   
I can't believe we're just a couple of days away from Easter!!! This year seems to be speeding along as fast as last year...and the weeks zoom by too! Here we are at Thursday again and it's Mo Challenge time! :)  An open challenge for you this's an 'Anything Goes' week... BUT...there's a sketch over on the challenge blog which you can use if you wish x 

I've used one of the gorgeous little Fairy Princesses...just love her...think it's the bunches!! I've used white cardstock this week but stuck with the Prisma & Polychromo pencils. 

Have a fantastic Easter weekend...hope the weather settles and we can all get out to run off those Easter Eggs!! :)  xx

Mo Challenge #128

Hello!!! What an absolutely gorgeous week of weather we're having over here in the UK!! Daughter no 3 is away with school at the moment down in Chichester harbour. They've been there since Monday and are due back tomorrow afternoon... and have by all accounts had the most wonderful week of sailing, kayaking, raft building...and of course...memory building too x They just couldn't have asked for a better week considering it's only March!!  :)
Well...this week across the pond at Mo's Challenge, the theme is 'To take inspiration from the photograph' given!  I've chosen Mo's 'Flower Girl' image this time...and coloured her on PINK card with my Polychromo pencils x

Mo Challenge # 127

It's quite scary to think we are almost at the Easter Holidays...and even more so that in another three months we will all be starting to think of Christmas in the craft world!! Eeeek! Sorrrryyy!! :)
Lets escape to the world that is Mo's for a while...this week for Mo's Challenge we are going all sparkly and want to see glitter and sequins and gems and pearls and ....anything that adds Bling to your creation basically! :)
You can go for as much or as little as you like.....
I have used the adorable baby fairy Kiki from Mo...I never tire of seeing her gorgeous little smiley face. I've coloured her with Prismas and Polychromos  on Kraft...I have fallen in love with them :)
The sun was out here at 6.15 this morning and it has been beautiful.....but where has it gone now???? Own up!!! Who's got it???? ............

Mo Challenge #126

Morning all...from a very foggy part of Surrey...but hopefully it'll clear to another lovely sunny afternoon. We've had some fab weather this week :) we are at Thursday again, and that means its...Mo Challenge day again!! YiP!! After we gave you last weeks excuse to go out and buy something new, this week we'd better not push our luck and have the theme of... Buttons & I think we must all be pretty safe :)
I have used the fantabulous Spring Fairy 'Puddle' ...and coloured it with a mixture of Prismacolor and Polychromo pencils...on Kraft x
 I'm off to sort my craft room...I can't find anything any more!  I had to do a 30min round trip to go and buy silicone glue earlier as it was quicker than rummaging for mine!!! Ooops!!!

I'm entering this into this weeks...

Mo's Challenge #125

Afternoon...and a very sunny one here in the South too!! :) I could get used to this...but it's just as likely to snow the next minute though with the weather we've had recently! This should have gone on much earlier...but I was trying to hide it from the person that the card is for! A bit difficult anyway as she's on the team...but hopefully she's got it IRL now :)
The sunshine always makes the day better...and added to crafting...we have it made!  Well... I'm back with Mo and the team...and have missed them all and my little pocket of sanity!! lol
This week at Mo's Challenge we have the fab theme of  TRY SOMETHING NEW....I just couldn't decide on 'which' something new!!!  I haven't...sorry...'hadn't'...bought anything new from the craft world for absolutely months...but then!!!...... Oooops!! It all changed!! :)  Soooo... on my card this week I have used a new technique (for me)  of colouring on Kraft cardstock...with my Prisma pencils and absolutely loved it!!
 The thing I NEED to buy more when I have Mr Holtz Distress Ink pens on order?? Do I? Huh? Huh? I think maybe....I do!!!!!! Lol
Anyway....I have also used my new Tim Holtz flower/leaf die...Memory Box heart die...Martha Stewart round the page punches and...flower spacers and brads from Nellie Snellen....oh and...Craftwork Cards Designer Paper...that's new too!! :) 
If you can't join in this week due to having nothing have our full permission to go craft shopping!!! :)

Mo Challenge #121

Morning all ... gee I'm running late today!! Only to be expected though really as I have a poorly Mum, who has us praying very hard this week. When I'm not with her, I seem to live on the phone to various people and  pestering for constant updates...or had my own heart stopping moments when the hospital phone me! In between times I've found some sanity on my craft desk! Well...actually...there's heaps of it all around my desk too, if I'm honest!!! :)'s that time of the week again when we can get some Mo therapy! This weeks Mo Challenge was set by my fabby friend Sheila...and she chose  BINGO for the theme. I have used the totally gorgeous Winter Fairy Talva  and coloured her with Copics .  My three Bingo items are ... Gems...Glitter and dry Embossing......
Nip across to the challenge blog to find out 'how to play' and see all the fabulous creations made by the team.
