 Hello everyone,

I'm all better now, just  slight, but nasty case of food poisoning and went and had my first Covid jab, all good, arm a bit achy but nothing to worry about..

I have another tag to share here today and for tag Tuesday..

This one started with a pretty with all the roses..

Glued that down with matt medium and carefully ripped the edges off..

Then I needed rose leaves so this lovely Altenew rose and leaf die came out to play,
 well, the leaf did..

Die cut out with water coloured paper..
and using Distress oxide ink and distress ink, with water and a paint brush..

I painted them...

Found a place on my tag for the leaves..and glued them down with a load of flowers from my stash too..

Added this gorgeous pink satin bow..

And tried not to match all the flowers..

added an Ephemera bird on a branch..and hot pink sequins from my stash..

And there she is, all pink and gorgeous..

Thank you so much for stopping by and the well wishes yesterday, they worker.

See you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

Time for a new challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON  and our lovely hostess is IMKE and she has picked her challenge theme and it is - JUST BECAUSE -

So I water bird and layered roses and leaves...

A new paper pad [ as if I needed more papers] from MFT..and used Nuvo drops for my card candy look, just gave then a bit of a whack on my desk and the drops flatten out and look like candy..

Not too dimensional and will fit nicely into normal envelope..

So there we, a nice easy challenge, Just Because, so come and link up HERE 
and you can check out what the Girlfriends have been up to..[they have DT by their name]..

I'm feeling much better today[ my tonight] a touch of food poisoning after eating crayfish at lunch time and had to cancel family dinner.. or just too much rich eating this last week and my body said ENOUGH..

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

Sharing again another tag at Tag Tuesday  ..

For gosh sakes, I though I was being so careful and my paper moved and now I'm seeing double..

But of course I will cover most of it up with flowers and butterflies from my favorite Ephemera pack..

they look like water colour flowers so I paired them up my own water colour leaves..

They go well together...

And added a beautiful butterfly and a few more flowers along with gems from when Gabriel blew his horn..they are really that old and nearly lost their sticky!..

And there we have tag #2..

Thank you so much for stopping by,
 I ate something funny today at lunchtime and not doing too good, so I may be back tomorrow or may not..

 Hello everyone,

Gosh, I need my skates on today, the day is nearly over and just putting up a post..

I made a tag to share at TAG TUESDAY  using water coloured flowers..

Thought I would have a play with tissue paper for a crinkled background, never done that before..

Then used inks to smoosh colour on..

Dear old stampin Up ink, this pad must be at least 18 years old and still going..

Glued on a sentiment..water coloured flowers itching to get on there...

So after some netting [onion bag] water coloured leaves, they were put in their place..

I also tucked a little postage stamp in there,not a real one, I bought 2 sheets of them from an Etsy shop and cut them all out..

They make a nice detail and they all have Bee's on them..

Added my ribbon and called it done..

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

This is post #3 for today, busy,busy, and this time it is for  613 Avenue Create and our theme for this new month of August is.. The Flavor of Fall..

I started this project with a happy heart as my favorite season is Fall/Autumn..I love it.
I made this background with water colour paint, and liquid ink..

Then die cut out my leaves, the bases..

And the veins..

Glued them all together...

And I did switch to gold for some..


I had these papers in my stash..[I was saving them]

And then everything else was leftovers out of my trays..netting, flowers, bee's..and I even used snowflakes as flowers, those little spikey ones, which started on another project and I will share that soon..

Gorgeous Altenew Flowers die cut, layered  and painted..

And a simple sentiment " Have a happy day "..

And there we have the flavour of Fall..

So thank you so much for stopping by, there are 2 more posts under this one if you fancy a scroll..

I'm off into the kitchen today, I have meatballs to make, vegetarian dishes to make, kumera [ sweet potatoe] croquettes and blue cheese sauce for pasta, so very busy, lots of chopping and breadcrumb rolling and touching blue cheese..eek..

I'll see you tomorrow..



 Hello everyone,

This is post number 2 today for the beginning of a new month for Christmas Crafts All Year Round and we have 2 more letters for you to play with...O and or P..

I chose P for poinsettia..

And being very good went into my case of scraps and slowly emptying it out..

I die cut a few poinsettias..

Foam dots for dimension..

Gold berry leaves..

Made a frame because I had an idea..

Glued them all down [4 corners Chrissy, why, why did you do that]

And added a gorgeous paper from my stash inside..

Then did this...the frame went on crooked and I thought I could fix it..

So popped the frame back on and you would never know..

After adding a die cut Merry Christmas I was done..

So there we go, thank you again for stopping by, I'll be back..
