Simply Wonderful


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 ..

There is more to life than increasing its speed. - Mahatma Gandhi

See you here again soon . Hugs Shirley-Anne.

Just sayin’hello

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 ,

Super Autumn weather today . Very quiet in the Barber household . A quick ride around the block so that Doug  could get some fresh air . A little house work , some meal preparation then in my craft room while DH watched a movie and dozed .

Always wanted to try roller skates. Left it too late now of course , even for the skimpy uniform ! Hello there , thanks for calling in and I hope you like my card for today .


Pumpkin Pie , SU , for  C6 card base with layer of older SU paper from my stash .Sentiment from SU set , Endless Birthday Wishes . Small cup cake image from clipart on Pinterest ..Bling from my stash .

I printed digi clip art image and cut her out leaving a panel on one side of her while cutting around the image on the other .  Stamped the sentiment , added bling and layered the lot onto Pumpkin card leaving small border .Small cup cake punched out with circle punch  and adhered to more Pumpkin Pie then punched out with scallop circle punch .This was 3D into corner .

Would like to enter this into this challenge …

Cake or cookie , love them both ..

Thanks again for checking in .

See you again soon , Shirley-Anne.

Birthday baking

Well hello there .Hope that all is well with you and yours . Doug and I are out and about still , even though the mornings are crisp now .But no photos as I think the koalas have headed for the hills .

Welcome to my room . Today I am sharing card for my girls to make .I have been browsing through pinterest and clip art .

The  coloured image on card front though is from a CD free from a magazine ,  Digital Crafting . Time poor at the moment so no time for colouring .

P1030759              P1030760

The idea for the gingham strips top and bottom on kraft card front came from blog land . I have cut out images without leaving white border this time as I think that makes them POP more , in this instance any way . The second photo is of the inside . Really happy with this card .The two sentiments are from the same stamp set from “Just by Jesta” DLU526S  sold by The Stamp Trap a loooong time ago .

Well there you go , a quick post . Hope that you liked the card and that my girls will too on Tuesday morning at craft .

See you again soon .

A perfect day .




A beautiful Autumn day for Adelaide , although the morning was ,    BRISK.

I do hope that your weather is just as glorious .  If it is not,  then I send warm wishes for a lovely day any way .

Went out early on gophers to Linear Park and headed for the hills . The trails were quite busy with walkers , joggers and dogs . There were many elderly people  strolling  , there were couples with children ambling along  ,scantily attired young ladies jogging .and a few men with sweaty T-shirts actually running ….and puffing . LOL


Just one of the photos that I took this morning . I put more pics on my Face book page if you want to pop over to see .

While I am here , I would like to share a card that I made today .



All card and paper along with sentiment and punch used are SU stock . The pink pearls are from Kraftyhands , while the floral die cut is from a  Kaisercraft    pack .  The white layer has been embossed . I adhered the flower and sentiment  with foam dots for added dimension .

So , as you can see , I have had a fabulous day . Hope that you did too .

I was thinking of this , as I passed  others today .

Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another. - George Eliot


See you again soon .

Hugs Shirley-Anne.

Birthday tweet .

Almost end of March ! Do you feel that the year is passing far too quickly?

I do. The days are just a blur , same old same old . Stop the train , I want to get off  and catch some thing slower . I have slowed down some what this week or so after leaving one of my DT positions . Time will tell if I manage now ,  to use my days more wisely.

Welcome to my room . Thanks for calling in , please say hello before you go .

Tonight I have managed to complete a card that I began  a week ago  . Wonders will never cease as I have even added some flowers .



White square card base . Used scrap brown card and coordinating papers and flowers from my stash . Image , a free find on the internet. The  sentiment , The Creative Stamp Collection , has to be 10 years old I think .

Well the clock is still ticking away and now it is time for bed . But before I go here is  a thought for today , before it is tomorrow . LOL



See you again soon .
