Sunday Sleepiness...

Evening Everyone,

I've been a little quiet this weekend, unfortunately not because I was supposed to be a busy bee! Yesterday I went to see the Scotland -v- Argentina game, despite the score I was enjoying the game although was begining to feel something wasn't quite right. Whilst leaving the stadium to walk back into town I was hit by a pretty big migraine. I must have looked some state walking through town in all my supporters memorablia crying. People probably thought I was upset at the result! I wound up having to get a taxi straight home, I was very lucky though OH took good care of me. I'm only getting back to feeling ok now, as I woke up during the night with another migraine. It is such a tiring thing to endure, I'm hopefully back to normal now though.

These are the cards I made this evening, my lovely new stamp arrived with my even lovelier copics on Friday! :o) I was playing with this tonight. The images are coloured with yummy yummy copics and topped with a little glamour dust, papers are doodle bug, blue ribbon coloured with copics to match, pink ribbon and gems from my stash.

Thanks for looking and reading my moans! Hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening. Thanks for looking, Lyns xx

Morning Everyone,

Thank goodness it's Friday! What has everyone planned for the weekend? Mine is going to be on the busy side but should be fun. Off for a couple of drinks with my OH's friends tonight, tomorrow I'm at the Scotland -v- Argentina rugby game. Will Scotland win again? I'm not hoping for too much, but it would be an incredible end to the Autumn tests. I'm sure a few drinks will be had there too and if I ever get any time I'll be doing some more crafting!

Here are some of the cards I've made recently, yes MORE Wags 'n' Whiskers cards! I love the image so much, I think everyone might get a card like this! Another cute image is my popcorn stamp, he's so cute! All my images are coloured with copics, papers are doodlebug and some from my local craft shop, so I've no idea... oops! Glitter is glamourdust.

Speaking of Copics, I've ordered up another set of 36 which I'd really like to arrive today - they wont now I've said that. I've also ordered a new stamp which is a little mouse on top of a cupcake, hopefully it'll be another cutie to colour!

Well I hope everyone enjoys their Friday and has a good weekend, take care, Lyns xx

Morning Everyone!

Morning folks,

Hope everyone is fine on this rainy day (well it's raining here). I couldn't sleep very well and woke up early this morning, so I took the opportunity to get some crafting done and play with my new stamps. I absolutely love this image, the image reminds me of a photo of myself playing in my gran's garden in thick thick snow, when I was very young. I went for another easel style card, coloured the image with copics and topped with some glamour dust then mounted on to some of my yummy papers and added the little snow flake charm to the ribbon. I might add a little sentiment to the bottom part but I'm not sure... anyway, thanks for looking xxx

Yipee! My New Stamp Came!

My new stamp came today! So I`ve been playing with it... pleased with the results. I punched out the snowflakes then added the dazzle dust and gems, stamp is coloured with copics - don`t look too closely at the cat, the ink bled out a little :o( the paper is from my stash and the brads aren`t brads they`re card candy! :o) TFL xx




Monday Madness...

Well another weekend is over, it goes by too quickly! I'm being naughty and posting from work, our printers have gone caput and it's the usual waiting game for them to be up and running. It's crazy how much we rely on things we normally take forgranted.

So whilst I wait, I thought I'd have a blether about my weekend. Turned out Scotland WON the rugby, I am still in shock. Everyone was standing around me cheering when the Aussie Fly-half missed a conversion. I don't think I could quite believe it, I was thinking why are they cheering - we didn't win! lol It was also my little brother's first match, who we now believe is a lucky charm and will be coming with us all the time now. Course he now has high expectations of the team... oh dear! :o)

In light of such a hectic weekend, I got no cardmaking done - BAD CRAFTER! Tonight will be a hard crafting night, I have some more Christmas cards to make (please may that stamp come today to help) and I have a commissioned 60th birthday card to make. I'll post some piccies when I'm done.

Hope everyone has a great week! That's my printers working again :o)

Hates Waiting

I don't have any new cards to upload today, I had to clear up all my stash last night as I'm having my little brother to stay. There is quite an age gap between us (16 years), but he's great fun to have around... Most of the time! I decided that I'd need to free up the dinner table as he'll probably want to play with some lego, so do I if I'm honest!

Well the reason I called my post 'hates waiting' is: I am waiting on a new stamp to arrive, it was shipped yesterday and being ever the optimist I thought it might come today... It didn't :o( saddens my wee self. I'm sure I can live until it gets here but don't you hate when you are really excited for something coming and it doesn't come when you hope it will?! I'll have to make do with the stamps I have until it arrives.

So for the weekend?! What is everyone up to? I'm off to see Scotland get a roasting (or should that be a soaking?) at the rugby tomorrow... the weather forecast is terrible, so on one hand I'm looking forward to it, on the other - I really don't want to get wet! Well we are Scotland afterall, rain is to be expected. I hope it is a good game anyway, at least the Aussies aren't used to this level of wet and wind. A Scottish advantage?! Not likely! I should mention now, I'm ever the optomist except when it comes to Scotland and Sport! lol

Well I'm signing off now, going to do a bit of blog hopping. I hope you all have a good weekend whatever is planned. I pray the weather is better wherever you are!

Snowmen and Stamps

Another couple of Christmas cards. First one is from my lovely Bo Bunny Papers, I love them! The second I card, I'm not really sure about! TFL xx




Lush, Lush Papers!

Morning Everyone!



I ordered some yummy papers from glitter pot by Bo Bunny which came yesterday, as soon as I opened the envelope I just wanted to 'play'. This card is what I came up with:

The stamp was free with Cardmaking & Papercraft mag. The snowflakes I bought in a little pack from the works for a pound! Bargain! Hope you like and thanks for looking. xx

Forever Friends Challenge Card

Over on the docrafts forum there is a challenge requiring you use a Forever Friends themed image, the theme being Scottish or blue and white. Below is my attempt, hopefully not too bad! Thanks for looking! xx

Finally Updating! oops!

I've been totally lax with this blog, started it up with the best intentions but then never got anywhere with it! oops! Will try again though. Here are some of my latest cards I've made, a combination of Birthday and Christmas. TFL xx
