Hi Everyone !!!

Well what a day !!!! well what a few days .... what is this weather like !!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH

Had to get an emergency appointment at the vets tonight as noticed Roxie (my guinea pig) had some sort of skin condition and some of her fur was falling out on her back.  Never had Roxie or Lila at the vets before, but obviously had to get them checked out  Turns out they may have caught something from the hay for sawdust like a mite or something.  Got treatment for them both although Lila is fine it is Roxie who has it worst poor wee thing, but she seems fine.   Will keep you posted !!

Also have had no internet all day today, which was a big pain, but back to normal now.

Thought I would share two cards today.  The first card is a stamp from Crafters Companion and the second card is an old stamp from Victoria Case.

OK I think I need a coffee now after all that excitement of the last few hours LOL also my parents are about to arrive.  Take care everyone and thank you so much for popping in !!!

Hey Everyone !!!!

Can you believe it is only a month to Christmas !!!!! Oh Happy Saturday !!! The weather here today is ... as it has been the last few days is totally PANTS !!! heavy heavy rain and very high winds !!! just the kind of weather to make you stay in and craft !!!!

Anyhoo here is a card I made recently .. the stamp is from Crafters Companion, coloured with prisma pencils and blended with Zest It.  The star was the very first thing I cut with my Cricut, which I also treble embossed (which I will be having a proper play with after all custom candles and cards are finished) !! I cannot remember where the paper was from. The sentiment is from Crafts 4 You.

What brilliant tv viewing tonight !!!! So looking forward to sitting down with some munchies in front of the tv and just totally chilling with hubby and Lucy !!!

Have a brillo Saturday wherever your are and whatever you are doing !!! Thank you so much for visiting my blog.

Hi Everyone

Hoping all is well with everyone !!! Just thought I would pop in with some of the candles I have been working on.  I am beginning to get to the point that if I see another candle !!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I am not able to show you all of them as some of them are photos and I don't have permission of them.  Anyhoo thought you would like to see some of these ones.

ALSO, ... some rather exciting news.  My friend has asked me to make her wedding invitations for next year OH MY I have never done anything like this before ... not sure where to start .... anyhoo I have accepted the challenge LOL !!!! it will get me away from candles I suppose.

Hey Everyone !!!

Hoping everyone is well !!!

Today I would like to share two custom cards that I made last week for my neighbour's grandchildren.  She was very pleased with them, which made me very happy, it was the first time I had made anything for her.

For both cards I used Lili of the Valley stamps.  HOW I LOVE THESE !!! The papers were just from my stash.  The wooden embellies were from Bunny Zoe.

Today is my last day at work and I have the rest of the week OFF !!!!! YIPEE

Will be extremely busy the rest of the as Lucy as three shows for Razzamatazz and I have about 20 candles to do ....... so watch this space LOL !!!

OK off to get ready for work !!!! LOTS OF HUGS and thanks for visiting !!!

Hi Everyone

Just arrived back from the club.  Feeling a little demoralised (and I shouldn't), but I do. After being asked to make all these cards some ladies didn't even get up out of their seats to look at them grrrrr !!!! Got a few candle orders so that is good. I shouldn't complain because anything sold is a bonus but I just feel I put so much effort into the cards because I was asked to make so many and then some people didn't even have the courtesy to look at them.  OK rant over LOL !!!

Today I would like to share this custom order that I made last week for Trish in work.  She asked me to make an 80th card for her Dad.  I always like to know a little something about the person when making a custom order.  Trish's Dad used to be a painter and decorator and now he likes making little movies with his video camera LOL !!! Here is what I came up with. The card is 8 inches square.

I was so pleased she loved the card !!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit !!!! I appreciate any comments left !!!

Good Morning dear Peeps !!!

Hoping everyone is well !!!! I have to say that this November is one of the busiest I think I have had in many years !!!! I have had various candle orders (22) at the moment and also some christmas cards.  I am not sure I have enough time in the day at the moment.

Tomorrow I am returning to the ladies afternoon club at our local cricket club to try and sell the various christmas cards that they asked me to make the last time I was there, so I have been trying to get some organised.  I think I have 20 cards in total.  Didn't want to go overboard in case they didn't sell.  I am also perhaps expecting more candle orders !!!

Anyhooo this is one of the cards I hope to sell tomorrow.  The image is from Karen's Doodles and I just love the expression on that kitty's face.  

OK need to get ready for work now !!!! BAH HUMBUG ........................................
