Mother's Day/Special Lady with Sweet Stampin Challenge

Hi everyone it's time for our 'Just For Fun' challenge over at Sweet Stampin Challenge and the theme this week is 'Mother's Day/Special Lady'. I have used one of the fabulous LOTV digi's coloured with promarkers and I'm so pleased they have brought these out and the printed images!
I went to the craft fair at Harrogate last Friday with a couple of crafty friends and had a really good time it was only the second time I had been out since I was ill so I made the most of it LOL...I really didn't want much (nose growing a little lol) I bought some essentials like glue and cardstock but on the way out I just happen to stumble across the Gemini machine on special offer with lots of extra's soooooo I thought why not! I've been poorly and was in need of a boost hahahaha! and I must say it cuts really well and really helps with my old limbs:))))
Well I hope all you wonderful peeps are well and don't forget to pop over and join in our challenge! Take care and lots of hugglessssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxx

It's A Mice Day!!!

Hi everyone...well I couldn't resist these new images by LOTV! aren't they adorable :) It was a shame when they stopped making their printed images as they made very quick cards so I was really pleased when they brought these back and with new images too!!! It's so bitterly cold today took Ollie and Woody out for their daily constitutional and I was wrapped up like an eskimo! I was so glad to get back home to the warmth....so for the rest of the day I'm going to chill and craft. I made some tasty homemade veggy soup so we shall be having that for tea with some crusty bread...just whats needed for a cold and icy day.
Hope everyone is okay ..sending lots of huggles to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sweet Stampin Challenge - Dies/Punches

Hi everyone! It's time for our weekly challenge at Sweet Stampin and the theme this week is dies/punches. Once again out came the LOTV image! I adore these little boys with the flat caps on LOL and even better that they now are available in a digi format..so much easier to store. Our challenge at Sweet Stampin has changed now ..we do it 'just for fun' ..so come on and join in!
We had a sprinkling of snow but nothing to write home about but the temperature really dropped last week and it was really icy but now it's really mild and dreary cloud overhead for the past few days. We had a stroll down the beach early this morning and Woody decided he would brave the icy cold North Sea lol well he didn't last long and I think he was glad to get back to the car for a nice towel dry, of course the older and much wiser Ollie just looked at us as if to say 'is he mad????' Well I must dash it's our youngest Grandson's birthday tomorrow and we are popping over with his pressies..can't believe he's 15 already!!! Take care and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
