#593 - Fab'n'Funky - 'Add A Sentiment'

 Time for our 'just for fun' challenge at Fab'n'Funky and our host for this challenge is our lovely Pat K and she has chosen the theme of 'Add A Sentiment' 

I have used a new 3D embossing folder from Open Studio at Memory Box and used the die that comes with it to cut the central image and add some gold gilding wax. The sentiments are from the new set from John Next Door's collection that you can use with his ribbon tag dies. Come on over and join in the fun and see what the rest of my teamies have made!

Won't be long until we are Grandparents again our Daughter is due on 16th May so we have all been helping with the new nursery...the cost of things nowadays is absolutely ridiculous! my Gran once told me she used a drawer to put me in when my parents stayed at their farm! LOL...so Grandad's wallet is a LOT lighter again but we are so excited! We bought Isabelle our Granddaughter a t-shirt with 'I'm going to be a big sister on' and some new trainers because we don't want her to feel left out. The baby shower is on 27th April but there is no 'baby reveal' as they want it to be a surprise...so myself and the mother-in-law can't do anything in pink or blue yet!!! Sir Bertie has been having some lessons I know he's very friendly but he hasn't quite got the hang of 'everyone' doesn't want to cuddle you yet! Here's some photo's of a very wet and muddy walk yesterday!

Straight in the bath after Lol but we had a fabulous time even if it was wet! Anyhoooooooo take care and lots of huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Crafty Calendar April Challenge

 Hi everyone...it's time for our monthly challenge at Crafty Calendar and the theme this month is 'Dry/Wet Embossed' and we are sponsored by the fabulous All Dressed Up.

I embossed the background with a 3D brick embossing folder I have and then coloured the image with copics and added some flowers and foliage and a tag off a John Next Door die. Please pop on over and join in and get the chance to win some images from the store!

Well the 'terror' that is Bertie lol is being quite good...and I emphasise the 'quite' because he's having my life at the minute!! ...he seems to think I'm a teenager and wants me to join in his zoomies around the garden.....well Bertie I'm afraid it's so NOT happening. We are going down to the beach today so he can run off some steam..those ball throwers come in so handy LOL ...take care everyone lots of huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Feeling Groovy


Hi everyone...well we've had non-stop rain ..the garden is like a mudbath and 'Sir Bertie' doing zoomies around it hasn't helped! LOL but he looks so happy so a bit of mud isn't going to hurt us. We have new neighbours that have moved in next door ..so he's already made friends and keeps going for cuddles over the fence if they are outside. I made them a 'New Home' card but forgot to take a photo of it and a lemon drizzle cake for a cuppa while they were getting sorted. 

My card today is an image I received through my Patreon membership of Mo's Digital so I coloured her with copics and just coloured a heart stencil with distress oxides and added the sentiment that came with it. I hope you are all okay and lots of huggles and take care xxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Happy Easter!

 Hi everyone!...I would just like to wish you all a very Happy Easter. We are having the family round today for a roast dinner and I've made a cheesecake and a chocolate cake for afters. 

I took Bertie out early this morning and was trying to tire him out but it's not happening LOL he's full of beans and when Lulu our Daughter's dog arrives I can see it getting even more boisterous.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter Sunday take care and lots of huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

#592 - Fab'n'Funky Challenge - 'Fantasy'


Hi everyone! It's time for our 'just for fun' challenge at Fab'n'Funky and our host for this challenge is the lovely Chris and she has chosen the theme 'Fantasy'. I have used this Sugar Plum Fairy that I bought from Funky Fossil.

It's been quite hard getting back into crafting so I apologise for this card LOL but I think I've lost my mojo! anyone find it I'd be really happy to have it back hahaha. Bertie has recovered well after the loss of his 'marbles' ...it's as if he's always been here. 

Pop on over and see what my teamies have created! and join in the fun...take care and lots of huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

'Happy Easter'


Hi everyone! Lovely sunny day here but I think we are in for some colder weather later on...sheesh we don't need anymore rain that's for sure. I made this Easter card with a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil and she is called 'Ava'.

Bertie had his testibules removed last Monday so he's been taking it easy??? Jeez the vet said he should be calm for awhile well he was till the drugs wore off then he was back to his boisterous self LOL...and Chris kindly sent him a card and a toy and he absolutely loves it. He had had no training whatsoever and was left alone for up to 11 hours while his owner was at work. Thought he was going to pull my arm out of my socket when I took him for a walk...well he's now lead trained and sits, goes down, gives us his paw and basically does as he's told LOL you have to let them know who's boss. But he's so sweet and loves cuddles off us both and has settled in absolutely fine and he's very intelligent...doesn't like any pigeons or crows coming into the garden and gives them a run for their money...after all he is a gun dog hahaha.

Well hope everyone is okay thanks so much for all your kind comments on my last post and have a great weekend! Lots of huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
