Hey There Santa!!

Can't believe I'm doing another post so quickly! It's because 'the hubster' is behaving himself and I've done all the housework ...so it's time to sit down and craft! This is another slider card made with the fab kits from Sam Calcott she has some great tips and techniques on You Tube as well...and I think they are so cute..especially for the kiddiwinks!

Well first vaccines in the UK on the telly this morning! Our local hospital was chosen to do them too ...I do hope it all helps to bring this horrible virus under control and then of course we have the anti-vaccine brigade scaremongering as usual...I wonder if there was any when they made one for polio or measles??? It's amazing how measles has made a comeback and tuberculosis.  Well when it's eventually my turn I won't be turning it down that's for sure. 

Anyhoooo I'm toodling off to make a cuppa and have a huge ginger snap from Rington's lol xxx If anyone hasn't heard of them they are a tea supplier and my Grandma and my Mam used to buy tea and different dinner services with patterns on and I have all my Grandma's collections.  Bye for now lots of huggles xxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxx

A quiet Monday


I've had a wonderful weekend with Paper Nest Dolls virtual retreat...I met so many wonderful people over Zoom and we laughed so much...we played games and learnt some new techniques...I especially loved colouring with distress inks. I didn't make this card over the weekend LOL this image is of course from my favourite images LOTV ...I've loved them since I started crafting many moons ago and I used lots of snippets of paper that I had in my box. 

The weather has been really miserable today...lots of fog this morning and drizzly rain...even 'the boys' didn't want to venture out today which is really strange. We have to travel to the hospital on Thursday for Paul to have a check up ...the traffic is always totally horrendous...and I'm at the doctor's on the morning before we go to have annual bloods taken and an ECG sooooooo it's all go and I'm getting my hair done on Friday...(must get rid of the grey!) It might make me look younger than I am on my upcoming birthday on the 14th!!! Oh my I'm 65..where have the years gone??????

Anyhoooooo everyone take care...great news about the vaccine!!! so hopefully everything will be okay...lots of huggles xxx Sue xxxxxxxx

Slider Card


Hi everyone! I've been busy practising making some slider cards with the kits I bought from Sam Calcott and I have loved messing about LOL ...no measuring (just the way I like it!) dies that cut out and score the lines too and the little elf pops up and down when you pull the side of the card. I have decorated the back as well with a message. I bought two sets the one above and the stamps to go with it and another one with Santa and Rudolph. 

It's been quite nice today we got a bit of sunshine later in the afternoon but I so hate the dark nights...'the boys' are off to get groomed ready for Christmas on Saturday so I will have a few hours where I can nip around and get some last minute Christmas shopping. I only have a few stocking fillers to buy and that's all the presents finished with thank goodness! 

I hope you are all keeping well and safe ..lots of huggles xxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxx
