Just how Wild is a Knitting Moose???

I suppose the obvious answer there is, it depends how you run away with their wool.....groan!!!!

Thanks for visiting today, and I hope my corny sense of humour hasn't made you run off. So once again, the rain has meant the lawnmower has had to stay tucked up inside my shed and my grass continues to grow.....I could have spent the afternoon ironing or cleaning the bathroom, but, after I spotted a sketch that I wanted to play with, that never quite happened.

I also wanted to take part in the lovely Squrrel's Wild Animal challenge - and I very much hope that this Moose is acceptable!

My card features:
  • Riley the Moose
  • coloured with promarkers
  • Sunny Day flowery paper from Kaisercraft
  • gingham paper is a magazine freebie
  • LC designs sentiment
  • Memory Box label die
  • wooden handbag embellishment
  • dovecraft doily and pearls

Gotta run now, and see about some dinner.....bye for now xx

A bit of Fancy Footwork

Hello, my lovely blog chums...hope you have had a good weekend and this week has begun well for you. As the weather bucked its ideas up here toward the end of last week, I took Friday off and spent the day clearing out and tidying our smaller of the two sheds, Saturday was spent rotavating and raking my Mothers back garden (oh my soul, did I ache on Saturday night!!!) and yesterday was a mammoth day of washing and the first BBQ of the year for tea, so that was nice...although, you always find you eat sooo much when its cooked on the barbie! So after all that I decided to have a more relaxing afternoon, and have a bash at a couple of challlenges that I'd had my eye on.

Today's card features:

  • The Big Kick from LOTV
  • coloured with Promarkers
  • mini sentiment from LC designs
  • X-cut scalloped edge square
  • blue dotty card from Anna marie designs
  • Pink star paper was a freebie here
  • wooden stars from The MDF man (I think - purchased at Sincerely Yours show)
  • dovecraft acrylic stickers

thanks and hugs for visiting today xx

Splish, Splash!

Hello there my blog friends, so how is your week been so far? It has been a grey, wet one here this week......I had actually booked a few days off work with the intention of clearing out our small shed and also doing a bit of work in my Mothers garden.....however, as the rain was so heavy yesterday morning I decided to abort mission and ended up going back into work this morning. I am hoping that the weather will buck up by the end of the week, then I will have another attempt at my time off plans

One upside of the lousy weather was that I was able to create a card around an image that I'd coloured a few evenings ago
today's card features:

  • Fifi Bubbles from Crafty Sentiments
  • coloured with promarkers
  • random papers from scrap box
  • sentiment from LC designs
  • twine, button and pearls from stash
I would like to enter this into:
i love promarkers - Inspired by a song or film - Splish, Splash by Bobby Darrin

Enjoy the rest of your day
Bye for now!
