Been Busy Playing!!

Hi Ladies~

Hope you are all doing well.
Gosh January is flying by, it will be February before we know it!

My Kids (well not kids as they are 24 and 22!!) but kids anyway, have gone Skiing, so it's all quiet on the Western Front here!! Ha ha...
Mind you that will be normal soon when Matthew moves into his first new home.
My Daughter moved out in October last year, (she is organizing her Wedding at the mo for 2016), and now Matthew is just waiting for his keys and then he will go too!   Boo Hoo.
I know they have to leave and do their own thing, but I know I will miss Matthew as much as I miss Eve. Good thing is......They are both less than a mile from me, so easy to see them, and no doubt he will do what she does and ring me to ask if its ok to come for tea!!

So sorry for the Waffle.....I wanted to show you what I have been doing all last and this week.



I bought this "Tim Ink" storage Unit back in October last year, and I have waited till now to assemble it as I wanted to spend time having a lovely play with it. It was really easy to put together, I then primed it with Gesso, painted it green then covered all the draw bottoms with pretty papers.
I had a beautiful long calender I won from Katy, and It was so lovely I wasn't going to throw it away, but did wonder what I was going to do with it.....well they fit on the sides and back of this storage unit perfectly. The calender was a very unusual "long" shape so I was delighted when the individual pages fit this unit, I overlapped them slightly to get as many on as I could.

I am really pleased I have been able to use these and I am delighted at how it's turned out. Oh and it is great for my Timmy Inks! I must admit I have not got as many inks as the storage takes, but i did squeeze some "oversize" other makes of ink pads in too, it looks a bit miss-mashed but I am happy with it.

Sweet Stampin' "Cute and Cuddly".

Hi Girls~
This week at Sweet Stampin' we have a great Challenge for you...."Cute & Cuddly", Easy right?
Our Sponsors this week are Craft Mojo, so why not head on over and have a go!

I hope you like my card for our Challenge this week.
I honestly can't think of anything more "Cute & Cuddly" than a Teddy Image by LOTV, and in this case Four teddies! so very cute. (well I think so anyway!)

I wanted to keep it quite C&S, so stamped the teddy bears and cut them out with  a Tonic scalloped circle die. The four rounded corner square's in the Anna Marie Dotty cardstock are cut with a Heartfelt Creations die, these are really good and were bought for Scrapbooking, but they are still perfect for cardmaking. I have coloured the images with Copic's, and added a few Hobby House Pearls in lilac. The Sentiment is also from a LOTV set.

Entering into:

Crafty Catz--Oh my Teddies

Winter wonderland--One Designer Paper

Thanks for looking. Debbiex

Sweet Stampin' "Girly but NO pink~

Hello Ladies

Welcome to the First Challenge for 2015 (for me anyway) at Sweet Stampin'.
This week it's "Girly, but NO Pink".....So nice and easy.
Our Sponsors this week are "All Dressed up". Good Luck.
Don't forget we are a Stamping Challenge, so some stamping somewhere on the project please.

I have taken today's photo on my New Camera (Lovely Hubby bought me for my Birthday,) not sure it will make a photographer of me, but my photo's cannot be as bad as the ones I used to take, can they? Saying that....this is a bit shadowy and not exactly right! Oh well..

I have the most amazing Standard Daylight Lamp for my Craft Room, (another fantastic pressy off Hubby, he does spoil me rotten!) It's fantastic, makes taking pictures and making cards at night so much better, my eyesight is getting worse and this helps alot.

For my card I have used a Topper I bought a while ago, not sure exactly who makes it, but it could be a Hobby House sheet, whoever made it, I think it's gorgeous.
I added some stickles to the cycle umbrella, and a Whimsy Sentiment Stamp from the Friendship collection. All the papers are from my stash, I have added a few pearls and a spot of mock stitching.
