Niamh's Easter Card, Some Painting and a Spot of Pottery.

Hi  crafty peoples. It's very wet here, although we aren't anywhere near any of flooded areas, thank goodness. Another month's gone by so it appears it's going to take a me quite awhile to get back into blogging everyday... so let's start with once or maybe twice a month!? (I will try harder! But I can't promise!) I would like to say hi to all my new followers on my other Digi store Blog but (I whisper this...) they all appear to belong to 'come met and see sexy girls' blogs.. so... I'll probably silently delete them!  As you can see, we've had the grandchildren a couple of times this month and Niamh is getting quite good at making cards and experimenting with other messy things!
 Of course Oliver's good at that too! So, I thought I'd add them here, seeing I haven't done much worth showing you at the moment. A couple of cold mugs of tea, a half eaten Picnic Bar plus a load of crafty stuff that just won't go  or stay where I put them...that's the trouble with moving my crafty stuff from my shed (now hubby's Man Cave) to the large bedroom and then packed away in the attic and now 'set free' to clutter the smaller bedroom again...(over the last ten years! Bloody Hell, where did the time go!) This is when I wish the walls were made of rubber, then things would squash in willy-nilly...or of course, I could have the bigger room back!
 Anyway!! Back to the crafty bit...
Niamh who is now seven, made the above Easter card, (Top Left) for her friend. Scalloped Edge card and Little felt bunny from Easter Themes paper from Papermania. (the papers are years old so they may not make them now) I suggested cutting out the little Happy Easter tags and 3D-ing them using sticky pads to make them pop.
The painting (Top right) didn't quite come out the way I planned, but it was fun, and that's all that mattered!
The clay pottery painting (Middle lrft) we did; is from a few weeks back. Oliver painted a guitar, which had to be RED! and Niamh painted a little night light fairy house.

 At the bottom...of this post that is...(sorry I've just stopped for a bit of a rest but then decided to go and sort out comments and spam.
 There was a few from 2017, which I've now added and  140 comments... that all needed deleting, some typed in Chinese....I mean...really?( I can't even manage English let aloan read Chinese!) There was another 101 in spam!
Anyway, I've added some more photo's of Niamh's two cards she made a few weeks back and of course Oliver wanted to make something but not a card.
 "What's in this box Nanny?"
"Umm...all my original drawings of my Digis," sez me.
"Can I paint this monster?" and as you can see....he did!
 Well, that's it! You wouldn't believe how long this took to type out and down/up load! I'd forgotten how to load pictures and to add links! But I guess that'll soon come back.... I'm just amazed that my old computer  who hasn't had a download for YEARS coz it's so old, has managed not to give up the ghost and die on me! Oops, touch wood....should there be smoke coming out the back???
Thanks for popping by!

Happy Burns Night.

Well, I am actually sitting in my umm-er craft room...with the cat, Mr Jinx,, he's snoozing, I'm typing this and no.... I'm not going out hunting haggis tonight, as it's gone midnight, and I'm typing this on my phone! (Tiny tiny screen!) Mainly because, for some reason I haven't been able to get into my blog for the last...trillion years. For some reason by dog walking business's email (which I have virtually wound down now, don't worry! If you're booked in, I'm still doing you!) has been showing at the top of the blog...instead of my dragonsmoore one, so of course, blogger seems to think I'm a newbie and wants me to start a new blog...and there's a load of guff about cookies, and they don't mean chocolate ones, anyway, will try to add a photo now. Oh...there it is, at the bottom! (quickly move that over a bit) This is a scene shot from my phone of my daughter and grand kiddies all sitting on hubby's Silverwing motorbike and having fun. So while I'm here I'll wish daughter a very Happy Birthday... and see you all later...'s the off button?

Ike's Gnome Sweet Gnome

Well, it's April, so it's a little late to be saying Happy New Year but I'll say it anyway. Happy New Year! Not a good start to 2018.... what??? Not a good start to the last five years actually... no that's not all true, bad things may trip you up (that's because my wellie boots are a little too big for me!) and send you falling face first into the mud(which some say is good for the complexion!) but the good things can whitewash over all that. (Just give a two year old a paint brush )
One of my fav card makers, IKE, has been at it again, bringing a smile to my face and using one of my digital images on one of her challenge cards.... Here it is!! Not the little gnomes but their Toadstool house in the  back ground. How fantastic is that!?  To find out more about the little gnomes and the papers Ike has used, just pop along to her blog.  join in, have fun, guaranteed to make you smile!

Edwina's Halloween Cards

It's nearly the witching hour and Edwina  has been busy making some fabulous Halloween Cards using one of my digi's 'Treat or Treat'...(I think the cat's called Treat!) Nip over to Edwina's blog to see how she made them.  First this window card...

                                           A Halloween Boo, Just for you!
 And this Halloween Card. Nice that they took the cat along to help with the trick and treating. Cats love treats too! (It's really too cute to spook!)
Well, that's all from me.... see you at Christmas, if not before!

Edwina's Creations!

Hi Bloggers, I just had to come out from the dust in the corner, fight off the dogs staying with me today, push Jinxy the cat off my computer chair... (it's okay...he's moved to the bed now) to blog about two fabulous cards made by the one and only Edwina  from Edwina's Creations.
 She has used Birthday Party Teddy from my store (yes, it's still there!) and coloured him with Copics. That cake looks good enough to eat! Bet it's chocolate fudge!

In the second card Edwina has used some fabulous cake  papers (I think there's a link on her blog) and used softer pastel colours also in Copics.
PaperCraft Inspiration Magazine has some freebie birthday cake papers HERE
(Stop awhile and pick up lots more!!)
 There's more infro on how Edwina made her cards over on her Blog, Edwina's Creations 
 Well, that's it from me....back to the dusty corner for a few more months! Unless of course you make a card using any of my digi's, then I'll just have to blog about that too!   Happy Crafting!

Unicorn Birthday Wishes Card by Tiya

Half a year's flown by so I thought I'd add this lovely card made by Tiya, using one of my digi's. Unicorn just to proove I haven't forgotten how to blog.... I have but we won't mention that! I remember drawing him, I hadn't had my Waccam long and couldn't get the legs right. Of course these days the only corn I get is Crunchie Nut Cornflakes or a corn on my toe! (The joys of dog walking!) 
So here's the card. Pop over and see it on Tiya's Blog   there's lots more cards to have a spy at.

Hi From Mr Jinx...and Me.

I know, it's been ages and ages (years??) with no posts or freebies or anything, but here I am, brushing away the cobwebs and trying to use the computer while Mr Jinx keeps pressing all the wrong keys (or trying to push me out of my chair!) 
I just thought I'd pop in and say "Hi" I'm still here and very busy, sort of, with my new venture...  Forest Walkies and to also say thank you to all of you bloggers from the crafting world who pop in and comment, like, make funny faces, on my Forest Walkies face book page - it's always great to 'hear' from you and makes my day! I hope to make a comeback with the crafting some time soon, not sure how, when all my crafting stuff is packed away in the attic but never say never!
  Hope you all have a fantastic Happy 2017!



Just Keep On Creating!
