Hi there , long time no see . Thanks for calling in .Sorry that I have been gone so long but nothing interesting to share here . Of course my cards /paper craft for my blog , http://shirley-anne-stampingforjoy.blogspot.com.au/ are uploaded more regularly .
By that I mean Doug and I have not been out and about on the gophers because it has been just too darn cold . So there has been no photographing .
This morning though we managed a quick trip to Morialta Falls . It was still brisk but we knew that there was no rain coming .
We are both well . So over Winter. Looking forward to fine weather and being able to share photos of what we call, ” our back yard ” .
Hope that you enjoy looking at my amateur photos .
Catch you here again soon .
Hi blog pals , welcome to my room . So pleased to see you .
Thanks for calling in .More wintry weather today but not a great deal of rain .
Had an awesome afternoon with DIL , Rachael and Grand daughter , Noomi .
I simply enjoyed spending time with baby while Rachael played at craft .
We all had a quick lunch before Rachael began to practice some sponging /distressing technique and stamping . Two cards she completed . Rachael sponged coordinating SU inks on her back ground layer before stamping and fussy cutting butterfly images for her first card .The second card had a two step floral image stamped directly to the sponged area .
Was a super afternoon .
See you here again soon , hugs Shirley-Anne.
Winter sucks! Today was cold , yesterday was cold and wet while tomorrow is going to be…you guessed it , COLD. The weekend is going to be cold and wet . Sigh. I know that it is not as cold as some Winters are in some other countries but 14 here at midday is freezing to me and Doug . Few outings but what I miss more is taking photos . Roll on sunny days .
Of course on the bright side I do get to spend more time in my craft room . I am grateful for that . Today I did a little blog /face book browsing , liking this and that . Even left a comment or two .
Hope everyone is well and happy . Thank you for calling in .
While visiting a friend today at her FB page
I spied some of her card designs that really did inspire me . So hope you don’t mind Teresa I used one of your ideas to create this card using a sweet image from Wild Rose Studio.
Card stock from SU. Sentiment from MFT.Pearls from my stash .Copics as colouring medium . Have not coloured for a while so did enjoy this lot .
Time to go .
My thought for today ..
See you here again soon . Hugs Shirley-Anne.
Too long since I have posted here . Hello to you and you and of course you . Thanks so much for calling in .
I do hope that you are enjoying life in general . If you are grieving , I pray for you to find that caring love and prayers from family and friends will uphold you during this difficult time . If you are unwell , may your recovery be swift . And if you just need a hug, then I send you a huge hug . I promise not to let go before you do …..
Sandy and I enjoyed some craft time this morning then went off for a quick lunch at a nearby deli where we have become regulars on a Tuesday . I had a curried egg sandwich, which I have to say was not as nice as I would have liked . I am not a lover of mayonnaise with curried egg and lettuce . How do you make your curried egg sandwich? I always boil my eggs while warming some butter in a small bowl and as it melts add a quantity of curry powder .I peel off eggshells and while egg is still hot mash lightly into butter and curry then add chopped lettuce . Salt and pepper to taste . Sandwich some onto fresh bread and Mmmmm!!
Wow , I think that is the first time that I have shared a recipe here .
One of the cards we made today but did not finish is that which I share this time .
I found this image on Pinterest , I think .
When printed out the image had a greyish area where the white is so I cut around the black area and adhered it to a piece of white card . The card base is Basic Black from SU . Whisper White , SU for first layer , then second dotty paper is from Kraftyhands C6 pack . The words are sourced from SU set , Crazy About You .Image topper was then added with foam dots . Will add greeting inside when card needed . Hope you like .
Will leave you now as I need to visit some blog friends and leave some blog love …
See you here again soon ,
Hi there , welcome to my room . Cold Autumn days now so a bit more time here .Says me who wishes that were true and easy to organise . Trouble with me is that I dabble in this and that and mostly do not achieve much at all . Full time caring is not 9 to 5 I fear.And I am loathe to give up on DT spots .
Thankfully a bit of spare time this afternoon to share a little birthday make . Some time ago when browsing on line I found this paper and image and knew that it would coordinate with a die that I had . Now I believe that this topper was actually a party table place tag .
I cut it out and instead of folding in half I created a topper , layered it onto some Real Red card leaving small border . Then adhered it to some blue card before placing all onto white card base .I stamped SU greeting in name tag spot . I die cut some small pieces and placed them at bottom of card . The circle topper was another piece from the same on line set. that was added to0 with foam dots .
oops I see a bit of foam dot under the starfish die cut ..
See you here again soon.
Hello I am baaaack ! Thanks for calling in and welcome to my room .
Slightly better weather this morning so we were able gopher out for coffee this morning . Mind you it was still quite brisk . By the time we had a coffee and toasted sandwich the weather had deteriorated , making a trip to the Linear Park trails unpalatable . No rain , just a chilling wind . Even though we were rugged up , Doug is on blood thinners and really feels the cold so we decided to head home instead . Now dear hubby is in the couch rugged up and watching a movie through closed eyes . LOL .
This morning after going through my box of unfinished cards I found some that have not been shared . So I put inserts in those that need it , some bling on front of others and took some photos
If I have indeed posted before , sorry for that .
All cards have been created from papers , images and card from my craft room stash
The smile card image was coloured with copics The birthday card made from printed matter from pinned images /sentiment. The With love card has topper from kraftyhands and the Party card, an image from K&K.
See you here again soon .
