Enjoy It All

Good morning from a very warm Pontefract. The sun is shining, and it's a lovely day. It's hard to believe there could be anything wrong with the world, and yet the terrible events in Manchester were just 36 hours ago.  My thoughts are with the injured and their families at this horrible time.
My lovely blogging buddy Tracy has recently brought out her own stamp set, and I've finally got around to having a play with mine.

The background has been made with Dina Wakley paints, and the stamping with Distress Oxides.

I'm entering this into the MMM challenge Put A Stamp On It,
Simon Says Stamp Monday Little Critters, and 
Craft Stamper TIMI.

Thanks very much for looking, and have a happy and peaceful day x

Take A Paws

Good Morning and happy Sunday. No rain (so far) I think it must have all got used up yesterday along with the thunder and lightening. The lovely and very tallented Donna  has recently made some stamps for Rubber Dance and I've been having a play.

Here's Poodle Power. Don't forget that you can have free P&P on orders of 15 Euros's and above by quoting SDFreeShip. I say don't forget 'cos I nearly did then lol.

Have a great Sunday, and thanks very much for looking x

A Good Heart

Good afternoon and happy Saturday. Today we have a little bit of sunshine after two days of rain yay!
PaperArtsy currently have an 'assemblage' challenge, and this is what I've made.

I must admit that when I saw the theme I just thought 'oh well, I'll join in with the next challenge' But after googling with assemblage actually is, I decided to have a go.

This is how it looks in the sunlight. Most of the embellishments are made of air drying clay from moulds.
The colour is from Prima wax and Treasure Gold, and the sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker.

I'm also entering this into the That's Crafty 'back to black' challenge, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday  'a bit of sparkle'
Thanks very much for looking, and have a fun weekend xx

Thanks for looking, and enjoy the sunshine if it's heading your way xx

Things To Avoid

Good morning and a very happy Wednesday. For all of you cat lovers - and that should be EVERYONE there's a new event over on the portal (or on't portal if you live where I do) where we are celebrating the kitties, and here's mine.

Here's his royal smugness Flearoy or Happy Cat as he's know at Lost Coast. I've also used Diamonds Border and Cracked Grass and Sky

So over to you now to worship the feline.

You Don't Bring Me Flowers

and I certainly don't sing you love songs, though I whistle a good tune ;-).  Good morning and happy Tuesday. We're half way through our 'stitching' challenge over at Lost Coast Portal To Creativity and this is my second piece.

Bless her she still has a lovely smile!
This has been made with Skeleton and Roses.
I hope you day turns out better than hers did lol.
I'm entering her into the monthly challenge at Dream In Darkness where weirdness rules.

Thanks very much for looking and have a wonderful day xx

Just Keep Swimming

Good morning and happy Monday. It's time for our second challenge of the month over at Rubber Dance, and it's a real fun one -  Rule of Three. 

I started by putting a coat of gesso on my page, then added some DecoArt texture paste and crackle glaze through stencils.

I then added washes of DecoArt acrylics and a tiny bit of glitter for some bling. I really liked it while is was wet.

Once dry I added some white bubbles with the end of a paintbrush, and 3 seahorses from Retro Beach - rule of 3 remember.

I made a Brusho background on some tissue paper for my fish.

Of course I stamped 3 from Something Fishy.

The sentiment is from the same set, so that's 3 stamps!

Please join in with our challenge, it's really easy and fun - 3 of anything will be perfect. As always there is a shipping code of SDFreeShip for free P&P on 15 Euros's and above.
Have a great week, and thanks very much for looking x

You Are, You Are, You Are, You Are - On My Playlist

Good afternoon, and happy Sunday. Lots of sport on TV today, so no-one notices if I'm MIA. Apparently Lewis won the GP, and Liverpool don't have quite the numbers in the box, but I really don't care lol. 
 One of the fab things about retirement is that you have a bit more time, but one of the bad things is that you have a bit more time for the GYM. Now I'm not a gym bunny, and never will be, but I do try and go every weekday, and to get me huffing and puffing my way round I have an MP3 player. I listen to the same songs, in pretty much the same order every time, and this tag has been inspired by one of them.

I know, it's not really a classic is it, and you can't sing along on the treadmill,  but here's the earworm
I guess I've stereotyped Donna's Bonny Bunny, I'm sure she's not that type of bunny ;-) I've also used the lips from Mail Art and the hearts that the lovely Bibi puts in the envelopes when she sends out her stamps.
If you want these stamp head over to the store, and remember to quote SDFreeShip on orders 15 Euros and over for free P&P.
Have a fun Sunday whatever you are doing,  and thanks very much for looking x
