This little boy is growing up

Well Timmy is not little anymore and he’s becoming a real handful. Apart from the fact that he eats ANYTHING, he also thinks he’s a dog and plays catch and fetch.

His latest think is to steal from my craft bag. It doesn’t matter what it is, Stickles, cut n dry, pens and he always takes them outside and leaves them all over the lawn.




He’s a handful but I love him and it’s so nice to see him getting on with his brother. Thanks for looking xxx

Early Morning

I don’t usually get up before my husband if I can help it but this morning I heard the alarm at 6am and actually got out of bed. It’s funny what a gold torch does to you.


There were loads of people, old and young, lining the route.Flags flying and whistles and drums and a fantastic parade. It was so nice to see everyone smiling and enjoying the event.

Thanks to Sally who got me there and great to see Ann, Jeannie and Martin there too. I have uploaded more pictures on Facebook. What a great start to a busy day.

Have a good one wherever you are. xx

Another Card Challenge

I can’t believe this is the 92nd Card Challenge at Scrapbook Sisters. That means, even allowing for the few I haven’t had time to do, that I’ve made about 70 cards since it started.

This fortnights challenge is Clocks and I could only think of one famous clock and thats Big Ben. So here is my entry this time.


The flags are from a Penny Black set and I think Big Ben was a Papermania Stamp. I loved its simplicity, something I’m really into at the moment.

Thanks for looking and don’t forget to hop across to Scrapbook Sisters Blog and enter your card. Hugs xx

Something to share

Those of you who know me know that cards are really not my thing. I struggle for ideas and surprisingly I can make a Scrapbook page quicker than I can make a card.
Here is one I made for card class last week.
I bought this stamp at Stamperama and it has quickly become one of my favourites. Every time I see it i thing “Silly old bear” as it reminds me of one of the Winnie the Pooh sketches.
Thanks for looking. xx

A new era and a new Scrapbook Challenge

With the announcement of the closure of our lovely shop yesterday, I was feeling a bit down and as you can see from the time of this post, I can’t sleep,  so what better way to start off a new day then to announce our next Scrapbook Challenge.

Our theme this time is Spring or Summer and you can enter your layout HERE.

Here are the two I have put up as examples.



Don’t forget to pop across to the Scrapbook Sisters Blog and have a go.

Have a great weekend. Hugs xx
