Our Mischievous Mice

Morning friends, I do hope your day has started well.
Karl was up and out at 5am, 
So I have walked Eric early and am now trying to catch up on jobs in 
my craft room. 
Although every time I tick a job off my list. 
I seem to add another one.
I bet you know that feeling. 

Today I have a sample to share with you using a couple of our mischievous mice. 
I have also used one of the new stencils. 

Keep your eyes peeled as these will be available on the website this Friday…

Here is a closer look 
They really do make me smile.

Take care everyone 
Much love and hugs

Stamping on the gel press

Hi everyone, 
Me again. 
Thanks for joining me, twice in one day. 
Get me.

I am just popping back to remind you that it is Tuesday, so that means time for a crafty catch up.
Today we are going to be looking at stamping on the gel press. 

I do hope you can grab a brew and cheeky biscuit and join me. 
You can find the video here 

I really hope you enjoy it. 

Much love and hugs

A little book of flowers

Hi everyone, thanks so much for popping in today. 
I do hope that your week has started well.
I am sat in my kitchen having a coffee, sat next to Eric. 
He has just been to the vets, and bless him his joint pain is getting worse and he needs more medication and physio. 
He is so good though, he just looks at me with those gorgeous eyes. 

Today I thought I would share a recent Aall and Create project with you. 
I really loved making this, and completely lost my self in a wonderful creative space. 

I used an old die from my stash to create the book shape. 

Then some simple inking, stamping and embossing. 

These backgrounds are fabulous to make. 

I stamped the design again added some colour and fussy cut the flowers. 

I added a little tassel…well I couldn’t not. 
Here is a closer look 

This is such a beautiful designed stamp by Bipasha bk. 

Take care all

Much love and hugs

I rescued this one

Hi everyone, 
thanks so much for popping in today. 
It is always so lovely to spend time with you. 
Today I have another Aall and Create sample to share with you. 

Now the funny thing about this sample is that half way through making it, 
I didn’t like it.
It very nearly needed up being filed in the bin. 

So I was so excited when Abs said on tv that it was one of his favourite samples..
Just goes to show you…
Thanks Abs, honestly you made my day.
You see I still doubt myself….just like most of us do 
Here is a closer look 

I have had grandma duties this morning, also food shopping, and walked Eric 
So I definitely deserve a coffee 

I hope you have a fabulous weekend. 
Please take care 
Thanks so much for your friendship on here 

Love and hugs

Music and Flowers

Good morning everyone, 
Thanks so much for popping in today. 
I have just got back from walking Jenson to nursery and Elliot to school.
It is so good to get 7504 steps in the bag before coffee.

Today I have a sample to share with you using some fabulous new stamps from Bipasha bk for 
Aall and Create. 

I found these stamps so wonderful to use. 
The artwork is amazing, 
So much detail.

Just the stamped images looks  stunning. 

I added some colour. 
Not too much 

The posca splats really do finish off the design 

Here is a closer look 

Abs is back on Create and Craft tv today 10am and 2pm.

I had better get my brew and cheeky biscuit so that I am ready to watch 

Have a lovely day 

Much love and hugs

Monday catch up time

Good morning everyone, thanks 
so much for popping in today. 
I do hope you had a lovely weekend. 
Our tester Cumbria workshop went very well. 
I kept numbers low so that we could all have plenty of space. 
It was so good to see everyone again. 
The sun was even shining 

I also managed a couple of visits to see my parents too. 
My dad still isn’t very well, bless him. 
So time spent together is more important than ever. 

There was another new release from Aall and Create , this time with stamps by Tracy Evans. 
Here are a couple of my samples 

I loved creating this one. 
As you know, over the last 6 months I have been showcasing dl cards especially the ‘along the edge design’ 
and the ‘corner to corner’ design. 
This stamp is just perfect for these and it is such a thrill to see so many other creatives using similar designs. 
Makes me so happy and means I am doing my job…yeah 
Have a look and see how many you can spot.

Here is another sample, 
this one uses the gorgeous woodpecker stamp , he is great to colour in. 

Here is a closer look 

I have another busy day , making more samples.

I hope you have a lovely day , 
Whatever you are doing 

Much love and hugs
