Quiet Crafty Day


We've had a quiet day here...it's been miserable and windy and the forecast has said that we are headed for some really cold weather...so I guess we will be staying indoors this weekend. We have to go out tomorrow because 'the hubster' has a check-up at the hospital but I think after that we will batten down the hatches and just chill and be cosy. 

I was making Design Team cards today and I found a couple of images that I had so I decided just to mess about and make a couple of cards with them. The window die is from 'Stamps By Me' which came with other dies and crafty stuff so I thought I would just use it and have a play...I guess they can go in my Daughter's pile LOL I have been busying crocheting too..I have made two baby blankets and finished some scarves that were picked up yesterday to go to Ukraine so I'm going to start on some hats and hand warmers for the next trip out.

Anyhooooooow hope you are all safe and warm..take care and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxx

Snowmen Family


I had some Penny Black stamped images so I thought I would put them together and try and create a scene..the stamped trees went a bit wonky lol but I enjoyed making it.

Grandson's appointment went fine he has to go back on 2nd December he has a bad tear in his shoulder but at least they know what's wrong now. I haven't been blogging much but I've tried to get around to do my commenting..I don't know where the days are going! Anyhoooo I must go and start the tea ..no clue what we are having yet though I'll make my mind up when I open the freezer door!!

Take care and lots of huggles xxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxx

#584 Fab'n'Funky Challenge - 'All The Blue Hues'


I can't believe how fast these month's are going by! It's time for our challenge at Fab'n'Funky and the theme is 'All The Blue Hues' and our host this fortnight is the wonderful Buffy.
I have used a Mo's Digital image and she is called Sing Joy and I've coloured her with my copics in different shades of blue and used some scrap paper to make a frame and punch some snowflakes out.
The weather is definitely getting colder now but thankfully the car doesn't take long to warm up! I'm taking my eldest Grandson James to see a specialist on Friday he's having an MRI on his shoulder because it's been causing him pain for months and he hasn't been able to get an NHS appointment so he's going to go private as he wants it sorting out as soon as possible because it's affecting his work. 
Anyhooooo take care and lots of huggles and stay warm! xxxx Sue xxxxxxxx

Sweet Stampin 'Use Red'


Time for our 'just for fun' challenge at Sweet Stampin and the theme is 'Use Red' so I have used this poppy stamp that I have had for ages and the sentiment is from the same bundle. I thought it would be fitting for Remembrance Day..both my parents were in the war..my Dad was in the Navy and my Mam in the Wrens.
Have a pop over and see what my teamies have made and join in the challenge.
Take care and lots of huggles xxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxx
