This Weeks Wednesday Freebie.


This week's Wednesday's freebie is called 'Pot Cot' although, I might change that. I'm not too sure who lives there, but I guess someone does! It was going to be an upside down flower pot, inspired by where a tiny spider has made its home in my garden, maybe next week! Go Here to download it. No sharing please. Comment if you can! Thank you for stopping by!

What's On Your Worktop?! Trees! And Dobby! #634

Happy WOYWW! This week I'm sort of carrying on from Yesterday, as I'm still doing the same thing, so there really isn't much difference . Just more mess! I'm remaking this Card (made from one of my own digi's) as I've misplaced the pictures I took of it the first time round. I printed out three trees-one's reversed so I can stick another picture of the door on the inside...I've cut nearly all round the tree,  then gluded it to another piece of paper, cut around that too, coloured in the open doorway with different shades of Promarkers Iced Grey.... (Oh damn! As I type this I can see I've made a mistake...oh well... no one will know!)It's all printed on 200gsmsmooth white paper, so by the time I 3D it over the main picture of the whole tree it's quite sturdy... I know...I lost you at 'Just more  mess' didn't I!?
So, here's more pictures. In front, the tree's just been cut around, and the door cut so it will open. Behind is the reversed picture, uncoloured, as I'm only going to use the door. (I was testing out the blue for the sky, Promarkers, Sky Blue or Arctic Blue, I went with the former. Above that, is my Dobby mug half filled with cold tea.

This bit was left from the 'original' card. The holes are for the swinging mechanism to fix to, but they were a little too high. I'll need 'more tree' to hide it and the gnome will probably get stuck in the branches! (Hope I can remember how I did it now!)

Oops...this is some ATC's I had left over for T on Tueday, I kept finding papers I liked better, so made far more than I needed. Well, it kept me out of trouble for a little while! That's it for now. Pop over to Stamping Ground and join in! Thank you for stopping by!

Time for T ? (On Tuesday)

I'm v-very late for Tea is for Tuesday this week, mainly because I thought  I'd wait for the postlady, so I could add expected ATC's but no, they didn't come, Then a quick look round the other blogs to see what everyone else had done, made me think, maybe I have the wrong date to reveil said ATC's! So, I'll wait for next week. Instead, there's some of the ATC's in that folder in the bottom left hand corner that I made but I didn't send... I got carried away and made loads, (not literally! But I have noticed men in white coats are always near by!) So, if any one fancies one or two, just let me know! 

T is for Tree. The picture above is me painting a black tree on an orange wall. I did this some time ago in the office my daughter shares will a few others. The idea is that everyone adds a frame to the branches with words of encouragement, hopes and  wishes for the future. I will probably post about this again with more pictures  at a later date.      

 T is for more trees...(The very top picture and below) I made this card some weeks back so it's already been sent off to the recipient  and I've mislaid the pictures I took of it at the time, so I'm remaking it! The smaller card at the back was the practice one. The gnome moved about with the use of magnets. But I didn't leave enough room and the magnets went a bit haywire and smashed! (One of the gnomes lost his arm!) The larger card, I'm adding a pull tag that is supposed to swing the gnome back and forth around the tree...I just have to remember how I did it before!

My mug of Tea this week came with a Chocolate Easter Egg, which I've long since gobbled up!

 And again...T is for Tie-Dying..... Oliver is concentrating very hard on getting his colours in the right place!

...As is Niamh, his big sister! and the last picture...

"All my own work!" sez Oliver!

Thank you For Stopping by!

It's What's On Your Worktop Wednesday!? #633


Happy WOYWW!? What's on My Worktop this Wednesday? Nothing! There! That was easy! Bye for now!

Only kidding!

 I did have the left overs of T for Tuesday's ATC swap... as I hadn't done anything else, except an Anniversary card for Sis in law. So, I quickly pushed all traces of the ATC's out of the way and hey presto... nothing there... bit boring really.  I added the freebie, which I was about the rub out the pencil marks. Then I took a 'step back shot'. I stand to craft so that's most of the things I need to grab first, but, because there's no room to put things down, they get piled up and pushed back, (or put on the floor) anyway, it adds a bit more interest ... ohoo sorry, forgot to remove the Farley's Rusk cereal bowl! Never mind.  That's it for this week. I really MUST get to bed before I get up and then!! Crafting! No! Lady Pam's been in Hospital, (she's okay) and we're going to take her home tomorrow. (Today) I think she even took her Twiddler  in with her!)  See you tomorrow/today. Keep Safe. Thank you for stopping by! Oh! Just one more picture! Here's Jack The Airedale, I puppy sat yesterday evening. So Cute!

Now pop over and see Julia's Stamping Ground!

A BiT laTE for T for Tuesday Trees Tall Flowers and Tied Dyed T shirts!

Sorry I'm so late for Tea For Tuesday. I usually manage to post about 2 or 3 in the morning but ...didn't! (probably fell  asleep!) I haven't be doing  hardly any crafting this week as I had cats, dogs and other things to look after... it's hard to retire when they are so cute! My bench was left with the aftermarth of making T Time Tuedays ATC's during last week. The  papers below I didn't get around to using, I downloaded them free from HERE so I think it's okay to show them!


My this weeks T cup, or Mug is owls on it... last weeks had tiny black pussy cats, which looked like owls, (with whiskers and tails and pink noses!) so I thought I'd have an owl mug this week. Good thing about Hot Chocolate, it's still nice when it gets cold!

 T for Terrier...Here's Jack, I puppy sat last evening. He's an Airedale Terrier. Loves to play. He has his big sister's bone and was trying to hide it!

And here's a beautiful ragged old Tree I came across the other day.


A very Tall flower! taller than me! It's nothing like the picture on the packet. The first year it didn't do much, last year  it got 'eatten' by bugs. But this year, under the carport it's been lovely!  Smells wonderful! I shall probably put it out the front tomorrow. And one last picture....

What's On Your Worktop Wednesday!? #632

Well, I haven't seen my work bench for quite a while now....I did tidy, in my own way, but then I had Happy Mail!! I'll tell you about that later, but first you have to click over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in! Ohhooo, we are not alone! Well, I'm not. I had Lola sleeping on one side of my chair, and last night it was Mr Jinx on the other and tonight Jinx is here and Lola has wrapped herself up in a blanket! The first picture of my work bench is a lot like yesterdays, but  different so,I will, as I go on, move stuff back to show you ATC's from woywwers and Happy Mail! I'd show you Lola the Chihuahua but it's too dark to see her. (I'll try and add something later) First picture, I've been sorting out my A4 stamps and 'filling' them. At least my cup has changed from yesterday! (sorry about pictures. My Camera's getting very old!)
Then we have Happy Mail from Anne,(Copperbeech Crafts)-the strawberry ATC, a late WOYWW and in the middle Christine aka Bishopsmate sent me some plates to try on my Gemini Mini after I said I'd only had it a few weeks and it was warping really badly! Thank you to everyone who told me what to do with them. It did work for a while but they are still bending badly! The plates Christine sent are Sizzix ones and didn't fit  the Gemini but fitted my old Bigshot, which won't cut hardly any of the thin dies I have (not unless I stuff it with sheets of different thicknesses of card...and then it only really embosses!) Anyway, as you can see, with the little plates it cut everything easily! The other ATC is also from Christine too! Thank you! In the background I'm making little notelets again, only smaller this time. I wasn't going to make the envelopes but decided to this afternoon.(Pictures are a bit blurry) as I only needed to use one 6x6 sheet of paper per envelope, cut down to five and a quarter and score at...Uh!? (where's the insert button on this new laptop? My old one would give me the fractions (and other weird things, so I wouldn't have to print them... here it, doesn't do anything!) Anyway...
Then there's the freebie, not finished that yet. Behind him are ATC's for The T for Tuesday Swap...just the backs, can't show you the fronts yet! Oh and another empty's thirsty work typing this! Then,  if we move the freebie out of the way...

At last, Happy Mail!! I have the Lawn Fawn Bundle! Magic Iris. I've wanted this for months. Waaaaay back in March, my birthday, I nearly bought it then, but even with a money offer off the price and a freebie unicorn, I didn't fill my basket because I was told I'd probably pay twice as much because of USA taxes. (If anyone knows if that's not true, let me know!) Anyway, I can't wait to play with these! That's it! I've promised to be in bed before midnight! (I didn't say which Midnight!) Don't forget to pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground!  oh...just one more picture!

Jinx sez Hi...he's feeling a lot better after his all day visit to the vets last week (plus two other days) and has to go again on Friday. That's it!! Thanks for stopping by! Bye Bye for now!!
