No sharing anywhere!  GO HERE  it might be a bit slow, or maybe that's just my computer!  A comment would be lovely as would links back here. . Have a great day.  I'm looking after Niamh later!

Training My New Dog Walker!

Niamh's growing up so fast,  I thought I'd train her as one of my new dog walkers!
 "Come on Benson hurry up!"

This is me telling her not to rap the lead around her hand
"Go! Go!" sez Niamh!

Happy Birthday Mason-Rain

Happy Birthday Mason Rain ! Five today!! He's growing up soooooo fast! Is it really five years ago since we stayed in Seattle when he was born?? I made this little zoo book last year ready to send on later but ended up making something completely different about dogs...didn't take a picture. I've added another felt lion to the front of this and another zebra too, but  again, I forgot to take a picture! Never mind. Sometimes I send stuff out to the USA and it comes back, so if it does, I'll take the picture then! Haven't shown you a pic of Mason for's here's one of him and his mum, Maria. Aw, miss you much!

Quirky Leaves and Autumn Colours The Finished Card.

Our 20th Challenge this year over on the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog, (which started yesterday) is set by Monica. Fall, or Autumn as we call it here. I was late again and didn't finish my card til Monday, so if you scroll down you'll see I was almost on time and had actually started my card (printed out the digi!) and this is how it turned out! It's a nice easy challenge so we hope to see you there! 
I placed, then printed Pumpkin Swirls from Kaz Kraft (Stitchy Bear our sponsor) over some freebie papers from PaperCrafts Inspirations Magazine. I've 3D-ed the pumpkins, coloured with Promarkers and added Stickles Glitter, ribbon and punched out leaves.
 Although Stitchy Bear sent us some lovely papers to use and my phone downloaded them, my old computer couldn't find them so with time fast running out, I opted for some leaves and *pumpkins papers (*saved as jhosFord-cutepumpkin-bg8 and luckily already printed out!) which I found whilst hunting through my folders. Most likely freebies from Scrapwow years ago. 
The orange ribbon and the die cut letters to make the Autumn sentiment came from a tin case set of mostly orange ribbon, cords,  threads, diecuts and beads from Laura Ashley. (Years old, never used them!)
I've also added a stamp by Hero Arts (E2322) along the top of the card using an autumn scene in aged mahogany Distress Ink, which I also used to colour the larger punched out leaves, plus orange and green Promarkers. As you can see I've left the inside blank with just the leaves backing paper. I think that's it! Only one of these pictures has Glitter on you didn't notice! Thank you for stopping by!
The Shabby Tea Room-autumn-bliss/ plus pumpkin
Incy wincy designs-something old something new 
(The Digi is new and the Laura Ashley diecut letters and orange ribbon are years old!! first time I've used them)

It's A Quirky Autumn Challenge...

Okay...I'm out of time again. So....just it case I don't get back, I've taken pictures of my DT Quirky Craft's card as I've made it. This Challenge is Monica's idea and she'd love to see, Autumn themed creations with falling leaves and all the colours that go with that! 
Here's my first picture of what will end up being my DT card! (You're rubbish Lyn...I Know!) Our Sponsor is Stitchy Bear. I've used this pumpkin corner Digi by Kaz Kraftz. Pumpkin Swirls.
I've teamed it up with some freebie papers from PaperCrafts Inspirations Magazine. 
As I type this, I've got as far as layering it onto some orange card. The next layer may be black....but it could turn out to be brown...probably brown...embossed... with gold...(My mind's thinking up ideas as I watch the clock!) Anyway, must go. I haven't coloured it yet, but that with be done a.s.a.p., using Promarkers. As you can see, there's more pumpkin pictures to use, so I'm also going to make the pumpkins 3D. I'll also have a spare orange background pumpkin, which I could use inside or use if I colour the first one wrong! Watch this space!! (Or not....scroll up!) meanwhile, go see what the Design Team have come up with. Fantastic!! Back Later! (tomorrow)

Another Quick Quirky Challenge Reminder

Here's my third DT card for the Quirky Summer Memories Challenge, which is in it's last week...
I'm using up anything I can find as my printer still thinks it's out of ink! The swimming Monkey is  from Bugaboo and was already coloured in ages ago with Promarkers. I've also 3D-ed him to make him pop out.
The die cut sun...well I have no idea where that came from! I do have a sun but I'm sure it's bigger than that! (Never used it! Or perhaps I have and can't remember) There was a smiley sun drawn in in the background but for some reason I cut it out. (why?) I have no idea! 
The beachy backing paper is all by PinkPetticoat, the sentiment was a freebie rub-on from a Craft Mag, the ribbon and the Seahorse charm are from my stash. There's also a little bit of stickles glitter glue.
Yes....I can remember wearing arm bands and trying to swim....sunk like a brick... and still do! Come and join in! I'll add this to last Sundays Quirky reminder too! Thanks for stopping by!!
