Christmas Post

Well it's a bit sunnier today I've managed to get quite a bit of washing dry on the line...love the smell of fresh bedding!...then I spent some time in my craft room and coloured in this LOTV digi stamp and made a card and I like this one a lot better than some of my previous makes lol

'The hubster's' appointment went well yesterday but the heavens opened on the way back, I hate driving in the rain. If the weather is nice tomorrow we are going to spend it with our Daughter and Granddaughter...we are going to Beamish Museum and it's all outside so fingers crossed it's nice...but I guess we can always run into the home made sweet shop hahaha

Take care and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxx

Thunder And Rain!


Well the thunder started rumbling in the distance and now it's here along with the downpours! but at least the lawn is getting a good soaking...the sky is really black and Woody isn't happy he's sat on his Dad's knee bless him and Ollie couldn't careless LOL 

I've coloured this lovely All Dressed Up image but not too sure about my choice of flowers and I think I should have made a smaller card but hey ho I can always do another one. We went to the beach this afternoon and 'the boys' had great fun in the water as usual and on the way back to the car it had started to spot with rain but cleared up quickly...but oh my it's lashing it down right now. Hope it's not like this tomorrow because Paul has to go for an ultra sound and check up and I don't fancy driving that distance in the rain! 

I'm off to watch some telly so take care everyone and stay safe! lots of huggles xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

'Barbeque Anyone???'

Well the weather continues to be warm here and ideal for a barbeque! I love this LOTV image I tried to colour him and make him look a bit fluffy with texture but I don't think it worked LOL and I love these papers from Nitwit I've had them for ages but never used them.

Just a reminder if you haven't already seen it, there is a Design Team call over at Crafty Calendar Challenge and if you would like to apply all you need to do is contact me my email is on the right hand side of the challenge blog.

I have no clue what to do for tea but it's going to be something quick and simple I baked a quiche this morning so looks like that and some salad! Take care everyone and stay safe!! lots of huggles xxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx

So Much Cooler!


Well it's finally a lot cooler here today although it's still nice and sunny it has been far too warm for us the past couple of weeks. 

I've had a bit of crafty time today so I sat and coloured this cute LOTV image in and used my brick wall embossing folder for the background. I haven't put a sentiment on yet because I don't know who it's for. 

We went out with our Daughter, Son-in-law and Granddaughter yesterday we did some shopping then someone piped up 'do you fancy going to Pizza Hut Nana???' LOL when how can you resist her I say ..so we all toddled off and had a lovely time. 'The hubster' and myself shared a dessert it was scrummy...so that's our treat for the week as I've been so good at cutting down I don't want to put it all back on...but we have decided it's better to have one treat a week and then you look forward to it hahahaha. We are going for a nice stroll down the beach with 'the boys' later on it will be so much cooler for them...so I shall toodle off ..lots of huggles xxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxx

Snow Family

 Well another hot day here so we've been melting again LOL ...I disappeared into my craft room and put my fan on so that was heaps better. I have used this Snowman set from Jan's Digital Stamps which has gone down in price! and you get lots of images so an absolute bargain...printed the pre-coloured images off (because I was too lazy to colour) and added some glitter and die cuts.

I'm still not happy with my Christmas cards that I'm making but I just can't seem to get my mojo back.,, I'm off to water the plants and settle down to watch some telly...take care and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Another Scorcher


Another scorching hot day! I think I'm melting!!! We have done absolutely nothing today except fill the pool up again with nice cool water for 'the boys' so they can cool off. I think Woody has gone to sleep in it lol 

I love this image from StudioDuda Art....there are some really lovely images on her site. I'm trying to get back to making Christmas cards but I just can't seem to get in the mood. 

Well I shall toodle off...everybody stay safe even though it's 'freedom day' I still intend to wear my mask ...lots of huggles xxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
