Rain Rain Go Away!

Oh I do wish I was like this little mouse snoozing in a hammock but unfortunately I'm not LOL the rain here hasn't stopped for three days ..the garden is soaking and I've had two very wet dogs to sort out when we've got back from our walks..but I must admit the walks were shortened a bit!!! Oops I forgot to say 'Hi' to you all and I hope your all keeping dry! The image I've coloured is one of the recently released digi stamps from LOTV :))) I know a lot of people don't know this but they are one of my favourite companies!!! I think this mouse is so adorable just laying there and snoozing away. Yesterday was crafty Saturday we go once a fortnight and it was one of the girls 70th birthday so we put a lovely buffet on for her and as always we had a lovely time full of laughter and chatting and trying to craft as well :))) Well I shall pop off and shall be back later to visit your fab blogs.

Sweet Stampin Challenge - 'Love'

Hi all you wonderful peeps! It's time for our weekly challenge over at Sweet Stampin and the theme is 'Love'...it's that time of the year folks when love is in the air especially with Valentine's Day around the corner.

Anyway enough waffling..I made this little book with these black/white images I think I bought them from the Little Claire stall at a craft fair.

Our challenge at Sweet Stampin is just for fun now so come on and join in the fun!! Take care and I'll be back later for our monthly Crafty Calendar Challenge! so see you all soon xxxxxxx huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

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
