HANGLAR CARD

Hi Everyone

Is everyone ready for Christmas !!! I have started my shopping but not yet quite finished. Due to another bout of depression I have not been able to pick myself up to make any Christmas cards this year, which has been a bit annoying but I have decided not to get stressed about it.
I made this card a few weeks ago for a childhood friend I heard about recently who suddenly discovered she had 3 stage breast cancer and started treatment immediately. The background stamp is Magnolia and the main stamped image is hAnglar stamp I was very lucky to obtain recently.


Thank you for visiting !!! Hopefully things will pick up and I will feel like making a card soon. So annoying when you really want to make one but just have no MOJO !!!!!

LOVE AND HUGS

CHRISTMAS - DOWN UNDER

Hi Everyone !!!

I cannot believe it has been so long since I have blogged. So much going on and not enough time. I am ashamed to say I have only made one card and that was for a work colleague's Mum who asked me to make a Christmas card to send to her sister in Australia and could I put some tartan in it.
Here is the end result. As far as I know it is now on its way. I do hope she likes it. I dont think she has been back in Scotland for such a long time.
Thanks for looking !!!


Take care !!!

CRAFT CLEAR OUT !!!!! WHAT TO START WITH FIRST

Happy Monday Everyone

I thought long and hard about this !!!

I hate parting with anything but my wee house is bulging at the seams and I truly need to de-clutter. I spent most of Sunday going about like a mad woman cleaning our sitting room. The amount of leaflets that come through our letter-box is quite horrific. I also spent a few hours shredding.

Anyhoo I have decided that I also need to go through and de-clutter my crafting cupboard (unfortunately I dont have a room).

So to start with I am going to sell of my embossing boards by the Glitter Girls. If anybody is interested in buying any of these please let me know. I have 8 boards all in PERFECT condition. They are listed below

BOOKATRIX BOARD
ROMANCE BOARD
ILLUSION BOARD
FRAMEY BOARD
THE KEEPSAKE ULTIMATE BOARD
EASTERN PROMISE BOARD
ELEGANCE & FANTACY BOARD
MAGJESTIC BOARD

PLEASE LOOK AT THE WEBSITE TO SEE THE BOARDS http://www.theglittergirls.co.uk

I am willing to sell these for £8 which is just over half price. Postage will be £1.50.

Thanks for looking !!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO EWE !!!

Happy Saturday !!!

This morning I dragged hubby and daughter off to the Glasgow SECC for the Hobby Craft Show. So I had a mad dash round for a few hours and when it was getting too busy for me I had purchased all that I wanted and all that I could afford. I picked up some really cool cardstock and paper along with some Sizzix dies I have been after for a I while ... so I was really quite happy.

Anyway I would like to share this card that I made using one of Victoria Case's Rubber Stamps which can be purchased either from www.internationalstampconnectsion.com (if you are in the UK) or www.victoriacaseartdesigns.com if you are not. The little sheep I have actually 3d.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend. !!!!

LIL SNOWMAN

Hi Everyone !!
I hope that everyone is doing well. Sorry I haven't been around .... doesn't life suck when you have to work for a living when all you really want to do is colour in, blend, and make cards !!!
I made this card yesterday on my day off. I thought instead of having the usual christmas colours I would try something slightly different. I went with purple and silver for my main colours. The stamped image is the Lil Snowman rubber stamp from Victoria Case.
If you are in the UK this stamp can be purchased from www.internationalstampconnections.com or www.victoriacaseartdesigns.com.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day.

MORE !!!!! BRITANNIA

Hi Everyone !!!!

Again we are half way through another week. I have now asked Lucy to make a list for Christmas ... we have 3 items on the list .. so it is a start. I haven't had the question yet Mum is Santa for real??? But I know at the grand old age of 10 I doubt this year Santa will be real. We shall see.
As promised I would like to share more photos with you of our trip to the Royal Yacht Britannia, which incidentally for those who do not know (me being one of them) that during the Falklands war Britannia was actually used as a floating hospital.
Anyway the first photo is of Lucy sitting on the grand-staircase between the state dinning room and the drawing room, photos shown in my last post.

I mentioned that during the Falklands War that Britannia was used as a hospital. Well here is the sick bay where operations took place. Behind where I was standing when I took the photo were some beds.
This photo is where some of the officers would dine.


Believe it or not there is the HONEYMOON SUITE !!! This is where most of the Royals that used Britannia for their honeymoon slept. It is the only double bed on board Britannia and also where Prince Charles and Princess Diana slept. The actual room is behind thick glass panels. What struck me was it was really quite plain and not as luxurious as you may have imagined.


I hope you have enjoyed these photos as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. Okay I am off to do some colouring in. HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY !!!!

OUR TRIP TO ... THE ROYAL YACHT BRITANNIA

Hi Everyone !!!

Well we had a holiday weekend this weekend. Today we decide to take a trip to Leith near Edinburgh and visit the Royal Yacht Britannia ... something I have always wanted to do. I was not disappointed.

This first photo is the state dinning room. There are 56 places at this table and it took 3.5 hours to set those places. Each place setting was measured by a ruler making sure everything was precise and perfect. Some of the most powerful and influential people have sat at this dinning table with Her Majesty. Bill Clinton, Margaret Thatcher, Nelson Mandela, Ghandi to name but a few. LOL I cannot remember any other names.


This is one of the small bars on board the yacht for the crew.


This is the Drawing Room where the royal family would retire to after dinner.

This is the front of the yacht before we boarded her. It was fascinating. I will post more photos in the coming days.



Thanks for coming on board !!!!! Oh I am sorry about that !!!!!
Take care
HUGS

THINKING OF ALL YOU SICK PEOPLE !!!

Hi Everyone !!!

I apologise for not being around for a week now. The reason is I have been sick. Like so many people across the globe at the moment I have been struck down with this flu virus .. sure knocks the stuffing out of you. To all my friends that I have met through blogging or on PCP forums I apologise for not commenting on your wonderful creations this last week but I have spent more time lying flat on my back and feeling sorry for myself than looking around the blogs. I am sorry. I truly hope that everyone that has this horrible virus does not need to suffer it much longer and we can all be healthy again.

Unfortunately I have now been left with Labrynthitis which I have not had now for quite a few years. It is a horrible thing to suffer from and my heart goes out to people that do suffer from it. It is an infection of the inner ear and usually attaches itself to a virus AHHHH !! Its affects your balance and can make you feel very sick !!! So now instead of being in my bed with a red nose and coughing ... I am now dizzy and want to throw up .. such are the joys.

Anyways I had made this card a while back and I wanted to dedicate it all my friends out there in blog-land who are feeling under the weather and hoping that you all feel better soon.

HUGS TO EVERYONE !!!!

Love

HEIDI HI !!!

Happy Wednesday EVERYONE !!!

So everyone in our house has a sore throat and a cold YUK !!! Started off with our daughter last Thursday, then hubby got it and now it has been passed on to me which was inevitable really. One thing I hate more than anything is the cold !!! I have now been talking to friends and this whole sore throat and cold seems to be everywhere at the moment.

I still managed to create a card or two today on my WEDNESDAY, MUMMY DAY OFF !! Which I love ....

This is a digital image called HEIDI by Victoria Case .. such a talent she has don't you agree. Victoria has also just had a new release of digital images today so please be sure to check them out.

I have coloured HEIDI with primsas and copics. This is rather a large card 8 inches square. Needed a big card for the BIG PAIR of ...... BEER GLASSES .... dont know what you were all thinking about LOL !!!! The lettering at the bottom of the card is actually sticky rubber lettering from Papermania. The stripped paper is from Little Claire.

Thank you for taking the time to visit. I do appreciate your comments and love looking at everyone's blog. I am actually going to be spending some time tidying and updating my blog list.

TAKE CARE !!

NEW LILI OF THE VALLEY

Hi Everyone !!!

So its the start of another week. Hoping everyone had a wonderful weekend !!

I would like to share this card with you that I made using one of the newer stamps from a UK company called Lili of the Valley. They have got such a cute range of new rubber stamps and decoupage sheets. You cannot help but fall in love with them. Be sure to check out their website www.liliofthevalley.co.uk.

I have coloured this image with copics and prismas. I think the paper is from a Papermania Christmas pad but I am not 100%. I have also glittered up the angel wings and finished the card off with a piece of tartan ribbon and a brad.


Thank you for looking and take care !!

YIP ..the very next day what arrived on my doorstep .. what would have been my first set of stamps. I contacted Marie in the hope that she had not sent out the fresh set of stamps but I was too late. So Marie came up with the idea that I use the stamps for blog candy.

See below all you have to do to WIN !!!


Items to win: 3 Stamps from the Greeting Farm !!! A Martha Stewart diamond punch (new), a little bunch of lowers and a pack of 5 deckle edge light blue cards by Craft Creations with envelopes.

WOW CHECK THIS OUT !!! - DIGITAL GOES CD

Happy Friday EVERYONE !!!

Who would have believed that digital stamp images would have become so popular across the world in the crafting business. I myself am a huge fan of the digital image but after a while you realise just how much room it takes up on your computer.

WELL it doesn't have to be that way any more. Victoria Case has came up with a solution and I think it is a FANTASTIC solution especially for those of us who love to use digital stamp images in our cardmaking/scrapingbook.

INTRODUCING the CD COLLECTION !!!! It is awesome !!! Please take time to visit her website and check out her newest venture in the CRAFTING WORLD !!!! www.victoriacaseartdesigns.com - You will find her full CD collection under her Stamps - Digi and click on the link of "Older Digi's".

THEN and NOW - 12th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

Hi Everyone !!!

HAPPY SUNDAY !!!

Today I wanted to share with you two photos. 12 years ago today my husband Tommy and I were married. I cannot believe it has been 12 years. Thank you for being my ROCK !!! I love you so much. Happy Anniversary !!!!

The first photo is both of us on our Wedding Day


The photo below was taken last week on our mini vacation
a Loch Ness !!!



Have we changed much in the last 12 years. My husband is not as heavy as he was (must be my cooking LOL !!) on the other hand I am actually double the weight and size I was when we married. What does that say ..... I was far too slim back then !!! that was just the way I was. Also my one major craving that I had when pregnant with our daughter was CHOCOLATE hee hee that craving has actually never left me.
ENJOY YOUR SUNDAY EVERYONE !!!

MINI VACATION - LOCH NESS, SCOTLAND 2009

Hi Everyone !!

Can you seriously believe we are almost at August !!! Where has the summer gone?? Hubby, daughter and myself have just returned from a few days up in the Highlands at Loch Ness. As you can see from the photos the weather was bad but the scenery is STUNNING !! We had the most wonderful time and the weather did not spoil it for us.

We went for a sale on the Loch and the litle boat was equipted with a sonar and it showed just how deep it is in some parts of the Loch. It was truly fascinating. Our daughter got a chance to drive and steer the boat ... she was quite delighted with this experience and opportunity. The photo below was taken while sailing and bobbing about in the boat !!

The photo below was again taken from the boat. The castle is what remains of Urquhart Castle. We decided not to go into it as we had a great view from the boat.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Hoping everyone is enjoying their summer whatever you are doing !!

THERE IS A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING - PLEASE MEET SOPHIE

Hi Everyone

This is a FIRST for me !!! Fingers crossed. I have never uploaded a video before. This is a wonderful puppet that SANTA brought our daughter Lucy last year all the way from Israel !! Her name is Sophie.

Sophie was created by the VERY TALENTED Sharona Reouveni (aka Raisinlike). Her store can be found on Etsy and she has now also launched her very own website. Sharona's talent is amazing. Her puppets and flutterbutts are just stunning and make a wonderful gift for any friend or family member who has a zany side to them !!! I think we all do. My daughter is the very proud owner of 2 flutterbutts and two hamster magnets. Please check out her Etsy store at http://www.raisinlike.etsy.com/. I can assure you from experience you will NOT be disappointed.
Below is a short video of Sophie dancing for joy on Christmas Day 2008 with her little singing christmas ornament doll.

Thanks again for taking the time read this.

GRACE BY VICTORIA CASE !!!!

Hi Everyone !!!

I didn't realise it had been nearly two weeks since I had last posted !!! Shame on me. I would like to share a card with you that I created the other day using an older digi image from Victoria Case. I believe she is called GRACE. Isn't she stunning. The actual card measures 8" x 8" which makes it quite a big card. I just adore this size of card. I got the cards from www.craftworkcards.co.uk. They do a beautiful range of cards and the quality is excellent. I have used black and white check gingham vellum and black cardstock to mat and layer onto this particular card. GRACE is coloured with copics.


Thank you for taking the time to look. Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday !! ITS THE START OF THE WEEKEND woooooooooo hooooooooooooooooooooooo !!!!

FRIDAY !!! YIPEE ITS THE WEEKEND

Happy Friday EVERYONE !!!

Thanks for popping in !!! Another 3 custom cards to share with you. The first card is for a woman in work who is leaving and loves dogs. She is always helping animal charities, she is and older woman but you would never know. She loves bright bright colours ... so I thought that pink would just do the job. It seems to work I think.

This next two cards are for the same person. One is as the daughter and the other from her little sisters. The first card below is made with a digi image from the very talented Sketching Stamper called Vicki Shopping. The card took a while to grow on me but then I really came to like it. My daughter thought I had put the "Happy Birthday To A Special Sister" the wrong way round and it should have been at the top of the card. I told her I just did it to be DIFFERENT.

This final card took a bit longer to grow on me ... but after I kept looking at it over a few hour period I decided I LOVED IT. It is soooooooooo vibrant !!! I wasn't sure if my customer would like it but she loved BOTH CARDS !!! phew ... The mini cooper image was drawn by the very TALENTED .... Victoria Case !!! Who is about to release a new set of digital images.

Sorry about the very long post. Hope everyone has the most fantastic weekend !!

GOOD FRIDAY 2009 - LOOKING FOR NESSIE

Hi Everyone !!

Hope you are all enjoying the Easter Weekend. Sorry no cards but I thought I would share with you a trip that we took yesterday which was Good Friday.
Even though we stay in Scotland we stay about a 3 hour drive from the start of the Highlands. We decided we would take a trip there yesterday as it has been such a long time since either my husband or I had been there. Our 9 year old daughter hasn't been at all and it is such a vast area. We decided to head for none other than Loch Ness to see if we could find NESSIE.


The above photo is taken from the car and show that there is still some snow on the Scottish mountains. This is a view of Ben Nevis which is the highest mountain in the UK.




This above photo is taken from the top of the loch and looks down to the very beginning of Loch Ness itself. The little town at the beginning of Loch Ness called Fort Augustus. Such a pretty place.

The above photo is taken from the very edge of Loch Ness. It was the only place we could get stopping at so that we could take some photos. It was rather late in the day when we got there, it was such a long drive. We will certainly take another trip there, there was such much we didn't get to see.

This is another view of Ben Nevis. I will share more of the trip with you in the coming days.
HAPPY EASTER TO EVERYONE !!!!
Hugs
Junie
AND WE DIDN'T FIND NESSIE BUT HAD ALOT OF FUN LOOKING !!!
