Hi, I'm back today with a couple of bookmarks that I have made using some digi sentiments and the lovely Card-io Majestix Begonia Garden set. I distressed the edges first using the milled lavender distress ink and then randomly stamped the design. I am entering this into this week's Word Art Wednesday challenge.
Thanks for visting today and for any comments. Luv Trish

Hi, It's been so long since I blogged that I've almost forgotten how to do it. Hopefully it will all come back to me! Hope all of my blogging friends are well and had a lovely Christmas and New Year. Before Christmas I was making my little snow people to sell and so I wasn't really making any cards. However, I am trying to get back into it this year and here are my first two. These have been made using the lovely Card-io Majestix little mini stamps which I saw for the first time at the SECC in Glasgow last October. I decided to treat myself to a couple of sets along with a set of new momento ink pads and this is the result.

Thanks for visiting today and I will hopefully visit all your lovely blogs very soon. Luv & Hugs, Trish

Hi to all my friends in blog land.  Back at last after a long break from blogging.

Since I was last here I have had a wonderful holiday in Florida and have been enjoying this exceptionally good summer.  Sadly I am back at school next week so this week I have loads of stuff I want to fit in before its back to the usual routine of work, etc.

I have been working on these little people over the weekend as I was looking for something a little bit different to make.  I am hoping to sell these little people to help raise some funds for a charity my husband has recently become a trustee for.  Anyway I was looking for your opinion of them to see if you think they will sell?  I am quite pleased with them but I would like to know what you think.  I will probably add a little sprig of something Christmassy through the arm but haven't sourced anything yet? 

I would be delighted if you would let me know what you think.

As always life is very busy as we near of the term at school!   Eight more working days and then 6 lovely weeks off, two of which will be spent in warm and sunny Florida!

Two of my friends have birthdays this week so I made two identical cards for them as they don't know each other anyway.   So easy to make using the lovely Lili of the Valley Wild Flowers Art Pad and some of my lovely dies and spellbinders floral oval.  

Thanks for dropping by!

At last the sun is shining after a dreadful few days of rain, sleet and even a little bit of snow!  Who would believe it was the middle of May!!   Thank goodness I am heading to the sun for a couple weeks when the school breaks up.  We are having a special holiday this year as it may be the last year Callum wants to come with his old parents!  So we are off to Florida with friends who have a son the same age as Callum for a week at Universal and then a week at Clearwater.   Can't wait!!!

Here's another Father's day card I made using the fab Lili of the Valley Vintage Boys Art Pad and Country Gent Paper Pad.  My dad loves his garden so this one is for him.

Thanks for visiting today

Hi to all my blogging friends.   Sorry I haven't been around much but life as always is busy.   It's the holiday weekend here so it's nice to have an extra day off, in fact, two days for me as I'm off Tuesday too!!   Been getting the garden tidied and tomorrow hubby is going to power wash the patio.   We recently treated ourselves to a swing seat for the back garden so let's hope we get some decent weather to actually use it!  It's still flat packed in the garage at the mo!

This year has just flown by and that's Callum now left school apart from sitting his exams and his end of year prom.    I can't believe that 13 years of school runs are over - where did the time go!  He's now got a part-time evening job in Sainsbury's so that will keep him occupied for the next few months before hopefully starting university in September - he's hoping to study Web Systems Development at Caledonian University.

Not had much crafting time recently but have made a start on a few Father's Day cards and this is the first one using the fabulous Lili of the Valley art pads (Vintage Boys) and the Country Gent paper pad. 

So glad you could visit today!

Luv & Hugs,
Trish xx
