Moon Fairy


Inspired by some time spent with a dear friend and her gelli plate,
I took out a stamp gathering dust, a Stampin' Up! die of a bauble,
one of their background stamps, some ink and a mask made from a sticky note.
I masked the fairy so I could ink up the bauble, then stamped her again to make another pair of wings



I think I added a bit of glitter, dazzling diamonds to her wings.

You need to believe to see one......

Not an early bird!


Hiya, hope all is well with you and yours.....

A bit of Bird Banter today
Gelli plate background reminded me of birds poo teehee.
(don't tell my Uncle that!)
I personalised it with Pick a Pennant, stamped the ickle birdie,
then overstamped with the "body" using a marker pen to ink the stamp.


It was late in the making, so therefore late in the post too,
so I added another gelli plate background as the insert.
I also enclosed some bird jokes, as he has a great sense of humour, 
but he is suffering ill health, so I hope it made him laugh.

Q what birds spend all their time on their knees?

A Birds of prey  

Hope you've had a fab weekend
See you again soon!

Hope your day is Magical

Myths and Magic for a boy, with knights and dragons.
It ended up a tri-fold card because it went a bit wrong from my plan.
Love this set and the Designer Series Paper,
from which I fussy cut some characters.


Have a Magical weekend

Parkinson's Walk at Leeds Castle

Hi everyone!
I thought I'd share what I've been up to at the weekend.
I did a sponsored walk with my sisters, spouses, cousins and friends,
at Leeds Castle,( that is not in Leeds, it's near Maidstone) :)

Our team was Ron's Ramblers as we were walking for my Dad who is suffering,
a cousin and great Uncle sadly no longer with us, 
and also on behalf of all of our sponsors,
many of whom have been touched in some way by this horrid disease.

We had such a lovely day, the sun shone and the scenery beautiful.


most of us had dodgy knees/hips/backs/feet and one with baby and push chair,
(which a kind man hauled over a stile for us!) 
so we took our time and enjoyed the moment.



I stamped the forms for the backs OBVS!


we all got a medal for completing the walk, which also gave us free entry into the grounds afterwards, so a win win! 


me and him :)


we made it!

A couple of people have asked for the link to our Just Giving page,
so here it is, we are extremely grateful for every penny.

Enjoy your day!

2018 Autumn/Winter Catalogue by Stampin' Up

Want to see a fun video from Stampin' Up!........
grab a cuppa, sit back and relax....



Want to see something completely different?

A lovely friend came over with her Gelli plate, paints and stuff.
We had such fun making backgrounds, way out of my comfort zone,
then I had to try and come up with something to share.

This is Guinevere.....
I tried to make the sunrays using a die as a stencil, its a bit too subtle.
Then I added the seahorse.....its so not to scale, in the wrong place.


One thing I tried was to continue the ground from the rock pile, using a fine pen,
which kinda worked. I also added gold sparkle to her hair and tail.
Pics not good but for a Gelli first it was fun, and that's the main thing.
I have more ideas in the pipeline.....

Lift Me Up!

Hi there!
I needed a quick card, 
this stamp set seemed apt, not had it out to play for a while.

Nice and simple, with a few snippets of white card stamped and die cut,
means I can enter the Snippets Playground yipee!


If you've no idea, click on the link and visit this fab blog for inspiration, prizes and more!

I need a lift.......my Dad's carers have given them 2 weeks notice as they can no longer provide him
their service due to staff shortages..........took so long to set up, and there's limited choice out there.
Carers have been overworked and underpaid for far too long.
It's about time they were valued for the service they provide.

On a positive note, we are doing a sponsored walk for Parkinsons UK,
and have been overwhelmed with support and donations.
So, every cloud..... :)
I have a Just Giving page if you feel able to donate anything.

Meantime enjoy the rest of your weekend,
may the sun shine for you wherever you are
