Christmas....Lili of the valley style.

I loved this colouring this image with my copics. It's so sweet. Papers are old ones from my stash and the sentiment is Pink Petticoat and a marianne snowflake die. Button prised from my stash reluctantly!!

New Di's digi challenge.

Another fortnight passes by in a flash, so it's time to check out the fun over at Di's digi downloads challenge blog! This week we are thinking thank yous and as you'll see by my post below I have a lot to be thankful for! Please stop by our blog and join in the fun, remember you don't have to use a digital image to take part, so we'd love to see your creations.


Morning all, what a horrid, horrid day here and the flooding has been terrible. It's been scary walking to work and seeing how high and fast the river Avon has got and how many people have been affected by it bursting its banks in places. My friend who lives at the bottom of our road has sandbags outside her house because the water level has risen so badly across the road and the drains cannot cope with the sheer volume of water, even hubby had difficulty making it home as the road leading up to our house was covered with deep water. We have also been carefully watching our back garden as the water cannot drain away effectively  and it has reached almost the top of our kitchen step, ironic considering that we live on a hill! Unfortunately one man lost his life and I am thankful that my brother made it back from the place where this happened in one piece. My thoughts are with all the people who have had their properties flooded and I hope tonight will not be as bad as they say it will be. We've been advised to brace ourselves!

Thank crunchie it's the weekend!

Well, I'm sooooo glad it's the weekend. It's been a week of "stuff" ! I'm still trying to make Christmas cards and I have some birthday ones to be doing too! Oh, busy, busy! Could I have more hours in the day please, but be sure to make sure that they are crafting ones and not working ones!!

Tilda in Purple!

The Christmas cards are growing and this little sweetie is already to hang the garlands on the tree. I have used non traditional Christmas papers on this one, but I think it works? The colours are a bit wishy washy, but hey ho!

Tilda and her little bear.

What has happened to our weather? Today has seen heavy rain, heavy snow and thunder? Has Christmas come early? I do hope not as I'm still making my cards! Today sees Tilda having a wee hug with her teddy bear. This little darling was fabulous to colour.

Saturday and all is calm.

I have been making some headway again with my Christmas cards. I'm really pleased about that! I know I'll probably think I'm done and then find that I'm not, but the intentions so far have been good and the number of made items is increasing quite well.......shame the housework has taken a back seat!! Still crafting or housework? Hmnn a difficult choice! NOT! Today's offering is a lovely Tilda! Yes you know how much I love this little lady and here she is with pretty hair!

I love Promarkers challenge.

Well been having a bit of a clear out of my crafty stash....this merely involved moving things around I'm ashamed to say....not parting with anything, but I found my dusty promarkers and decided to have a play with them. I coloured this really cute Penny Black image and then used nitwit papers to make this simple card, that won't cost a fortune to post! I am entering this into the I love Promarkers challenge blog. where the challenge is cute.
