Cute Christmas

Hi all, 
Firstly I just want to say a massive thanks to everyone who left such lovely comments on my latest card. It has been so long since I posted anything on my blog that I did wonder whether everyone would have forgotten me by now :) Don't know how I forgot that crafty peeps are just the best!

Here are a couple more cards I have made with some of the other fab christmas images from 

This one is using the Sweet Mistletoe Owls 


 I coloured them with prisma colour pencils
The snowflake is a memory box die and the sentiment is from another digiset from Digstamp Boutique HERE

And not forgetting this lil beaut...how cute are those lil mice!

SWOOOOON.....I'm in love....

With OWEN!
How blummin brill is this new guy from Digistamp Boutique eh?
He's just perfect for those pre-teen/teen/young adults chaps in our lives . Heck he would even be good for hubby who spends far to much time in this position for a 47 year old...I could always add the grey hair...right ???? :P lol



Here I have coloured him with prismacolour pencils
 and the papers are digital from just so scrappy too called Hey dude.
I made the sentiment myself and left a blank space so I could write the recipients name on to personalise it.
All the papers  were printed onto papermill shop linen card and the "kraft" buff is also from the

Thanks so much for stopping by today

A stranger in the camp :P

Hello my lovelies
Once again it has been toooooo long. I've had no time and I have REALLY been struggling with my mojo. Nut I have persevered and managed to make a couple of cards using some adorable new images from Digistamp Boutique
...how could you have no mojo when working with these beauts eh?



All these images are from the

Sally-Ann has just released some even more cute Christmas images and an absolutely fabulous set of a new character called OWEN...perfect for teenage/young adult boys  ...oh my, I am in love with him!


Sorry about the not so brill pictures but it has been grey here for a week :(

I think we can safely say that autumn is deffo here now. Grey,cold,wet and generally miserable............ but that's only the weather right! I am feeling a lot more positive with things at the moment. I have decided to reduce my hours and things have really settled down with mum. She was in the "when I get better" mode and not wanting to go anywhere etc etc . But over that last couple of weeks I think she has realised that she has to try and make the best of now too. We have taken her to a couple of local towns by bus and she has even managed to go to her local club for a game of bingo on Sunday morning. Although she couldn't play by herself she really enjoyed the social aspect of it. So it seems although physically she hasn't really made any big steps over the last few weeks mentally she is soooo much happier which in turn has taken a weight of my shoulders and I am starting to feel a lot more bright about our future too :)

Thanks for listening to my waffle and hopefully now I have a bit more time you will be seeing a bit more of me on here...fingers crossed xx

Hello my lovelies :)

Well it's been a long while since I posted hasn't it?

Things are just so hectic  trying to get in to a routine caring for Mum. We have had quite a lot of issues with her care and dealing with different department for basic stuff . Why is nothing to do with any sort of social services straight forward?  I cannot tell you the amount of time I have spent on the phone to different departments trying to get something sorted which to me seems perfectly straight forward. I won't go in to details and some of the things are not pleasant but by gawd I cannot imagine what some people have to go through if they don't have anyone fighting their corner like mum has with us. It' shocking and has REALLY opened my eyes !

Anyway what with that and still trying to fit in everything else that I was doing before into my life it has left me NO time for cardmaking :( The little time I have had I have sat here and shuffled bits of paper round and gotten nowhere fast!! :( A lot of the time after the basic care my mum just needs company/chat as she is sooo bored and with her not being able to see well she is VERY limited in what she can do. So I have started taking a bit of crochet with me whilst I sit with her and chat. Here is what I've made the last few days...some little hats for the kiddies for winter :)




I do hope you are all keeping well and thanks ever so much for all your continued messages about my mum . Take care all and keep safe and warm in this awful weather we are having at the mo :(

Another little bobbi :)

Hi all, Hope you are all having a good week :) I am!.... I'll tell more after my card .

For this weeks DT card For Digistamp Boutique I've made another card using the adorable Bobbi ....gawd I love this lil Ted so so adorable! Sally-ann has just released some christmas Bobbis too :) :)


I coloured the oh so cute Bobbi with prismacolour pencils

On to my happy news. We are finally setting the wheels in motion foe mum to come home :) we had 2 choices she could go to the stroke rehab centre for 3/4 weeks or come home and receive up to 12 weeks physio at home. All to do with funding I suppose. She left it up to mum to make the decision and she chose home. So we are just getting all the equipment in place. Hospital bed , hoist etc we have had a to take a few doors off downstairs and  once everything is in place care wise she will be saying goodbye to the ward ....It's gonna be hard work and I will be helping care for her but I can't help feeling elated at this point. Mum is so happy and it will be soo nice not to have to trapse up that hospital everyday . So upto now I am :)

Thanks for stopping by today
