Sheenagh & Dave Anniversary 2016

Hi Folks

This is a post I scheduled before Christmas.

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas, we have had friends from 
Scotland staying you will probable know Sheenagh Hulin from FB and here Hubby Dave.

We had a great time, ( well I hope we did as am writing this just before they arrived lol ).

Their anniversary is on the 31st January, so had to get it finished before they arrived.

I think the Heart Wreath from Clarity Groovi plates  work so well and loved
making this one, as I do all my parchment creations using Groovi plates.

I hope everyone has a truely amazing 2017 
Hugs to all.

Peacock Beauty

Good Afternoon Folks
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas,
 we did, had our good friends Sheenagh Hulin and Hubby to stay, lots of
eating and drinking lol.

 I didnt get anytime to spend in my craft room, and am still struggling with an
absent mojo, however,  today  I made it there.

The CD is Collage Fusion Stamp it up and the folder I used is
Peacock Beauty, just love the colours of this folder.

I did play around with the background and the frame,  using Serif Craft Artist., so this background is
not on the cd. didn't change the colours, 
just superimposed the ladies head and some Butterflies, onto the background, 

Anyway hope you like this card.

Memories are forever

Hi Everyone 

I have finally managed to make a card and blog it. It has been a while lol.

As most of you know, we are back in our house finally, it has taken nearly 11 months
and a lot of heart ache, don't think I could go through another flood like Storm Desmond, 
get very jittery every time it rains !! hopefully, that will pass with time.

Anyway enough of being maudlin,

This is a card I made using a CD the first one for a year or two, and am a bit out of practise
with this medium, but, could not resist using the new CD from
Magik Graphics ( formerly JemsDesigns ) 
Collage Fusion Stamp it up.
It contains 12 folders all gorgeous and very usable.

As I said I do need some practise, icluding my photography skills , but, hope you like what I have
managed to create.
Hugs to all

Clarity Groovi "Velvet"

Good Evening All
I hope you have all had a great weekend, once again
we have been packing boxes, just for a change lol.
Our house is coming along slowly but nicely, Kitchen is been delivered
on Tuesday fingers crossed.

I needed to make a card for a neighbour, who is going back to work as a
Trainee GP at our surgery, after having a year off on  maternety leave.

So, once again I have used my current favourite Groovi plate 
Velvet Art Nouveau border plate I also used the swirls on the same plate
I also used the Art Deco Alphabet and Pricking Border plate.
all available from 

The Eagle eyes of you will notice this is not stuck together, mainly because,
I have no idea which box all my glues, & tapes are so will buy some instead
of opening lots of boxes.
I hope you like this as much as I have enjoyed making it. 
Thank you for visiting

Groovi Christmas Parchment

Good Morning Folks

I am up early this morning. we are waiting for the Removers to deliver the boxes,
ready for packing up to move back home, this has been delayed a little but it is
coming on and definately looks better than it did a month ago, at least we have plastered 
walls now.

As, most of you know I am not doing any crafting, but decided to learn how
to do Parchment craft and of course, as you all said I would get obsessed  with it
and I have lol. It is wonderful to do, and the Claritystamps Groovi plates 
are amazing.  I am mainly doing Christmas parchment, and in my mind I will
have time to make them into Christmas cards when I get back, for some reason,
everyone laughs at that and says yes maybe for Christmas 2017, and that I will have no 
time for crafting for a few months, they could be right, but, we will see. 

Anyway, I was really pleased with this one so thought I would show you, I actually put it
on a couple of the parchment groups I belong to the other day  and forgot to put it on my blog lol.

I used this plate for the main image and and other bits from other plates.
All the 4  Art Nuveau Ladies are lovely, 
Thank you for visiting, it is much appreciated.

Grooving along with Clarity for the 2nd week.

Good Evening Folks
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying all 
this lovely warm weather, we had better make the best of it might
not last that long.

I have been playing with my new passion
Clarity Groovi Plates, I am still doing lots of practise bits and at the
moment I am concentrating on Pricking and Snipping, sounds exciting doesn't it lol.
However, I do like to take bits from different plates and make up a design.

Anyway  these are what I  created this week and as you
can see I do need the practise.
Thank you for visiting
