Family time

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.

P1030724    P1030727         P1030730

The first card  has  floral image from a floral Art Pad and a sentiment from another  from my stash of LOTV stuff. Shame that these are not available now .

The second card I have totally cased  from one I found on Pinterest . Well it is a little different but see the original at link below .

The third card .Well this is mostly created with scraps apart from the card base . The image is a free image from I forget where in blog land . If I can find where I will edit .

That is that for today with a quote I found .

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. - Joseph Campbell

To Gnome is to love me

Hi there . Welcome to my second blog  place where I am posting cards/ projects that I might have made just for fun .Thank you for calling in .

Today I had some time spare between washing machine loads so not wanting to get too involved in any large project I found a set of stamps with small images for quick colouring .

The words though , are from a SU set , Botanicals For You.

I used copics as colour medium .P1030701

The card base is Hammered White 14cm square. from a pack of pre cut card.

I was not expecting the result I got when I stamped the sentiment onto the hammered card front .It is different but I think I like it .

Now , as is my  usual habit , I will stand this in front of my work space for a day or two and think about whether or not to add embellishments .

I did enjoy the colouring but not the washing …


See you again soon,  hugs Shirley-Anne.

Get inky for Tag Tuesday

Time poor , lost mojo and perhaps too many projects on the go .

I am sure most of you will relate,  but having said that , I am indeed sorry that I have not participated for a while in tag making for Tag Tuesday .

So here  I am trying again .     As soon as I saw the theme I knew the image I wanted to use .     I remember being so messy with pens and ink, when I was much younger .


Just simple tag using,   Whisper White card , Regal Rose ink ,

stamp , SU.  Watercolour Wash for the back ground .

Amanda Writes stamp, Stampabilities. Ribbon from my stash .

Hope that you like the tag as it was fun to make .

The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today. - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

See you again soon , Shirley-Anne.

Grandson Birthday card

Whew , hot here today .

Hi there welcome to my room and my ” Just for me” Wordpress post.

Today I will post a card I made for one of my Grandsons .He wont see this here so all good but I really should have googled for the colours of a basket ball . Not to youngish for a 10 year old do you think?


Pre printed card from Creativ pack . SU punch for banner in SU card. Coloured with copics. Fabulous image from  KnK.  Small stars from my stash of confetti.

Must apologize to the many groups that I am part off but don’t visit often enough  .Something always seems to hinder me and time management skills are fading fast . So to those who are still following me and sharing time with me , I do thank you and appreciate your company  and comments if you have left any .

Will enter this challenge



That’s all for now , see you soon , Shirley-Anne
