Rosie D's Challenge No. 61 - Sponsored by Digi Sparkle

We have a new, fab challenge over on Rosie D's this week. As it's Christmas, we've decided to let you choose what you want to create (aren't we nice!) One lucky participant this time will have the chance to be the winner of unlimited access for a month to our sponsor, DigiSparkle's shop! Wow - fantastic or what?!

I've chosen the Tea for Two range from the shop as it's always nice to catch up with friends and as I'm off work for two weeks, it's the perfect time to do so; we all lead such busy lives that it's nice to unwind for a time.

So, with that in mind, if you live locally to me....

Snow way it's nearly Christmas!

Woah! Have you seen the white stuff outside?!  I was so excited as I love the snow!  Spending time outdoors with the kids in the snow is the ultimate chill factor!

It was my last day at work today before Christmas and as Jacob had finished school yesterday he was coming into the office with me.  The snow also meant that Freya had her final day off too so they both came with me (not to work of course, to build a snow man in the car park outside!)  It's a shame I never got any photos of it as it was HUGE - the car park was empty apart from half a dozen cars as the other companies locally had closed for the day (very sensible indeed; Will's 10 minute journey to work took him an hour this morning and my short journey took half an hour too - but we all arrived safely, so what the heck!)

We were back home again by not much after 12.30pm followed by a quick lunch, change of lens on my camera and outside we went.  I'm loving my new lens that I bought from Kirsty (though I have to focus manually as my new camera doesn't have a built in motor into the camera but uses lenses with Silent Wave Motors - hence the slight blurring of all my piccies - I'll get better with it hopefully!

I love these shots....

My house.... looks just like a Christmas card!

The patio & the shed... (taken this morning before work)

My totally handsome son...

Freya gathering a snow ball - hopefully for Jacob and not for me!

Catch this one brother!

Nice shot!

It's ok mum, I didn't eat the yellow snow!

Anyone for spam?

No?!  Not me either, but unfortunately there are some sites out there trying to sell some rather dubious chemical concoctions who are having a field day leaving me comments which I cannot, for the life of me, understand!  I don't speak or understand mandarin Chinese which are most of the weird comments!

I don't know why I've suddenly become their target, all I CAN say is that "thank goodness I have comment moderation" on my blog.  I don't use word verfication (as personally, I don't like it), preferring instead to moderate my comments, thereby controlling who can and cannot leave comments - I was previously 'stalked' by a very nasty lady indeed and had to block many an evil comment from her!

If you don't have moderation on your blogs, please enable it.  It's not only Chinese comments that I'm receiving; there are others equally as dubious in their offers of medication.  You can guess their offers I'm sure, but siffice to say, last time I looked I had no 'manhood' for which to increase in size or stamina courtesy of a little blue pill! HAHA!

Spam, spam go away... You're not welcome on my blog and I don't want to play!

Our theme for this challenge is Red, Green and a bit of bling!  Nice and Christmassy themed if I may say so, but of course, you may have other ideas in mind.....

Kathy's Waffle Sketch 2009 #17; Layer it up

Not quite sure where my time goes to recently.  Working full time.  Family chef.  School meetings.  Son's taxi.  Not to mention that I've been feeling totally pants these last few weeks and subsequently VERY tired.

It seems ages ago that I've done one of Kathy's fab sketches, so I've given myself a kick up the bum and have created a card.

Everything here is recycled or old.  From the backing paper to the corrugated card to the circular gift tag to the scraps of cardstock punched into flowers and shaped.  Not to mention the odd buttons that I've used.

Thanks Kathy for a great sketch!  If you too want inspiration, pop over to Kathy's sketch blog for some great places to kick start your mojo.

Inspirational Card Sketches #43

We have a returning sponsor on Inspirational Card Sketches this week, SquiggleFly. Ashley, the owner is giving the winner of this challenge 3 choice images to the winner.

Your challenge for the coming week looks a bit like this.

Remember, you can rotate, flip, stretch or anything your heart desires with the sketch.  Have fun creating!

I thought it was about time to start my Christmas cards properly and I really enjoyed using this sketch to make my card.

Inspirational Card Sketches #43

Dawn's Inspirational Card Sketch for us this week is lovely!  I really enjoyed working with this one to create my little happy Santa!

I gave the sketch a little bit of rotation and came up with this...

For the circular base I used a blank coaster that I simply inked round the edges and then added a simple ready made topper! S'cuse the handwriting round the edge of it!

Inspirational Card Sketches #42

I had such a mare of a week last week that I forgot to upload this card to my blog. I managed to get it across to Dawn in time for the ICS launch. I've also not had the chance to leave comments on the fab cards that the talented artists have made, so to those people, I'm truly sorry!

The images from The Greeting Farm are fantastic!  I loved this image of these two little cuties and couldn't wait to bring them to life with colour.

Rosie D's Challenge No. 58 - Lemon, Lime with a dash of Ribbon

We have a new challenge that's gone live over on Rosie D's this week.  Our colour combo is Lemon, Lime with a dash of ribbon.  We were also kindly sponsored by Heather from Fresh  Brewed Designs who has a bit of  thing for coffee as can be seen from her fab images of coffee cups and all things cakey that go with the perfect cup!

I'm in a using up bits and bobs kind of mood again.  With Christmas coming up, I'm saving my pennies on the craft front and have found some right doozy stuff that I'd forgotten I had! LOL.

Hello, only me!

I've really been MIA, on emails, texts and blogs recently.  I've had the most awful migraine which peaked this week with such force.  Wednesday found me struggling with my vision and my balance so much that I packed myself off to bed at 7pm.  Yesterday the early night previously had started to knock it on it's merry way (thankfully!) and I started to feel slightly normal again (no comments please! LOL)  I've had to avoid the computer in the evenings as I sit in front of one all day, every day at work and it's been very hard.

It's still lingering around but I can at least stand without feeling nauseous, listen to music and look at a computer screen for a little while.   I've not been in my craft studio for almost a week either - now that was HARD to do!!!!

My son turns 14 next week (oh, how those years have flown by!) so last week we went out to buy his pressie.  He wants a watch and I managed to get him a gorgeous French Connection one at a bargain price because the jeweller didn't have the box!   Like he's going to wear the box on his wrist!!! Anyway at 75% off the price it was certainly worth having no box.

Not only did we find Jacob a watch in the jewellers, but I spied a gorgeous ring (as you do!)  I'm not one for lots of flash jewellery and what I have I wear.  My original engagement ring was a solitaire but with a sneeze of a diamond (it WAS 1986 after all and I was only 18 and Will was 21 and we were buying our first house at the time).  The ring split years back so Will replaced it with a diamond cluster, but it was never my solitaire.  Anyhoo.... I told him I'd seen this ring that I liked when Jacob and I got home.  Next thing, he'd got his coat and shoes on - "Are you going to walk the dog?"  I ask.  "No" he says, "We're going to buy you that ring you've seen!  I've waited over 20 years for you to say that you've seen a piece of jewellery that you REALLY like and you never have, until today."  So it went like this:  coat and shoes... car... car park... jewellers... bling on my finger with this piece of gorgeousness!  Not only did I get my solitaire (much bigger diamond this time too) but I got a little piece of rare Welsh gold to wrap it round my finger with!

I'm totally paranoid about losing it and use that as an excuse to admire it several times a day!  She sparkles like, well like a sparkly diamond ring! LOL.

Santa has come early for me and brought my birthday pressie with him too!  Diamonds really ARE a girls' best friend! LOL.  Well, next to my husband and kids, it's my best friend!!!

Remember that there's a great prize up for grabs.  All you have to do is take part and have fun!

If your birthday is 12th December, then please look away NOW!!!

I have a certain friend (she'll have to remain nameless or she'll know that this is her birthday card! LOL) who has a passion for little dragons.  When we were given some images to play with from Doodle Palace over on Inspirational Card Sketches that included this little fella, I just couldn't resist getting myself ahead and making her birthday card - early I know, but good for me to be so organised.

Fantastic family film!

Weekends are special to us as it's our family time and we always try to do at least one thing out of the ordinary with the kids as they really deserve it with their impeccable behaviour and hard work at school, so this weekend we had a trip to the cinema to see the Disney/Pixar film 'UP'  We LOVED it!!!!! If you want a good, family film with entertainment, laughs, touching moments and all out FUN we can truly recommend it.

Oooh, and I cried - twice!  But not as much as Freya did! LOL

I can't embed the video at the request of Disney it's not available, but I can give you the link to the official trailer on YouTube just {here}

Sad, sad, sad, sad!!! But ecstatically happy! New Moon, here I come!

Why am I sad but ecstatically happy?  Because I've just booked two tickets to see New Moon on opening night, Friday 20th November, that's why!!!!!!  Jacob and I are going - I've told him that it's his birthday treat as he'll have turned the grand old age of 14 on Wednesday 18th HAHA!  Really he's coming to keep ME company.

Haaaaaaah!  I need to watch Twilight one (or several) times more before I go just so I remember what happened in the first film you understand..... don't you?

Indigo Mill Kit

I love to use up my bits and bobs - waste not, want not and all that.  I also like to save my papers for just the right photos too.  Indigo Mill's The Beautiful Life kit from August was still out as I knew I wanted to scrap some fab phots but just didn't know which ones to use until I found these...

The other day I was looking through my tin of photos and came across these two of the kids taken a couple of years back at Kirby Hall.  They had a dressing up table.  Needless to say (judging by the photos) one of my two was more keen to try on the costumes than the other one... can you guess which one is grumpy? LOL!

Tthe other layout I made used a photo dating back a few years, 6 or so we reckon looking at the ages of them both.  I love the way that the light coming through the window behind them creates a halo effect around their heads.  Hence why I then chose to cut out a large chandelier from my Cricut Home Decor cartridge to shine above them.

In addition to the Indigo Mill 'The Beautiful Life Kit' I used:
Cricut Cartridge: Home Decor.
Stickles glitter glue.
American Crafts Mini Marks rub ons.
BasicGrey alpha stickers.
Prima flowers.
Chipboard crowns from Buzz and Bloom.
Metallic rub on paste.

My mojo has been very quite of late!

No pics, just words...

I have lost my mojo recently. Don't know where it's gone to if I'm honest.  I WANT to create but can't be bothered!  I do my duty and meet my DT obligations but beyond that in the last couple of weeks I've really struggled.  Don't know why, and I'm not making excuses.

I've not even been in my room most of the last couple of weeks.  Had to push my way past the tumble weed to get back in today!  No MSN as my laptop is in here.  I've kept in touch with relatives via Facebook as my mobile patches in to the interweblet.

On a plus point... I have read a book in the last week.   I have also had some well needed early nights and feel revived, refreshed and raring to go again (I think!)

Today I made chicken casserole.  Enough for two meals I thought...... until I cooked it and turned out to be enough for 3 meals!  I could have fed half of my neighbours tonight LOL.  One portion for the freezer and the other for the fridge which'll equate to a quick, wholesome tea next week.

Hope everyone in blogland is well and enjoying life.  If you see my mojo on your treks, please chastise it harshly and send it back home, won't you?

Di Hickman October #3

It's been a while since I've joined in with one of Di Hickman's sketches.  Doesn't life just get in the way of having fun and doing what you want to do?  Anyway... Di has a great new sketch that's she's just put up on her blog and while chatting away to her on Facebook, I came up with this little number.  Very simple and it uses some lovely velvety flocked Bella! paper that was in a kit from Indigo Mill.

I've stamped the sentiment in brown faintly to work as a shadow then again, slightly offset in black.

The string came from a label that was on Jacob's new jeans and the buttons are all old and recycled too.

Sad, sad news. Rest in Painfree Peace, Aunty Lesley

I had an email from my Aunty Gill (one of dad's sisters) who is on holiday here from America telling me that my Aunty Lesley had been rushed to hospital and could I get hold of mum and dad as she only has their home number and not their mobiles or even my own home number with her in the UK. Mum and dad are away in their caravan for the weekend.

I was assured by the local hospital at 10.40pm that she was comfortable as could be expected and to call in the morning to see what kind of night she had had. Then to call again after 10.30am today after she had been seen by the consultant. This info I relayed to my parents. Settling news as she seemed to be relatively comfortable and they were unconcerned as to her immediate future.

I then received another call from the hospital at 11.45pm to say that she had deteriorated rapidly and could I ring the family, which I did.

I then get a call at 4.20am to say that she was very, very poorly and sadly not expected to see this morning. Again the phone calls all round to my parents, cousins and two aunties. Unfortunately it seems no sooner had I put the phone down again after making these sad calls that I then get another call from the hospital to say she had passed away at 4.45am.

I then had to call my parents, and my cousins while the hospital rang my other two aunties to give them the sad news.

Though I'm glad dad didn't come straight home in the middle of the night as he has a heart complaint and angina and is 72 himself and would have had to drive 2 1/2 hours to be with her in the middle of the night. I wish we could have said goodbye and God bless to her properly.

I had to explain to my children that their great aunt had passed away. My son who's almost 14 understood in such a mature manner, knowing her ill health which had become much worse recently. My 8 year old daughter was extremely upset but I've tried to make her understand that her great aunt was so poorly, that her body was very tired and it was making her sad to see everyone else sad for her poor health. That her great aunt is now in the stars looking down with 3 of her grandchildren who died many years back in a house fire. That they now have their grandma to cuddle them as my daughter has her grandma to cuddle and love her.

She later asked me if she could go to the funeral if it wasn't on a school day. I just can't let them go, either of them. It's no place for a child in my eyes. There will be time enough in the future for funerals. For now I want to protect them from that experience.

Digital Delights & Promarkers

We were sponsored this week on Rosie-D's Challenge blog by Digital Delights who kindly sent the DT 4 images to work with. Being a little indecisive as I am at times, I used all four images and made them all into cards. All of them were coloured using my new fave item... Letraset Promarkers which I recently treated myself to from Cowling & Wilcox

All of the papers I used on these cards came from my scrap packs. No new paper was harmed in the making of these cards! LOL.

Rosie-D's Challenge Blog

We have a great sponsor that we're working with this week. Digital Delights are offering our winner a $10 gift certificate this week. They have some fantastic designs in the shop.

Such a scary Mary!

I'm so daft sometimes I really do scare myself! Every week on Inspirational Card Sketches, Dawn provides us with a sketch to follow. This week we also had a sponsor (Lindsay's Stamp Stuff).

I duly downloaded and printed the images we were sent. Chose which one I'd like to put on my card. Got my Promarkers out and coloured my image of the witch in (gorgeous isn't she.. she such a pretty witch!) and then proceeded to finish making my card.

I photographed it in daylight to prevent flare from flash photography and went to email it over to Dawn ready for her to post on the ICS blog.


Anyhoo, I like my card so much that I'm admitting my stupidity and sharing my witch with you! I hope you like her as much as I do.
