Recycling, and pie…



Hello all, what you up to on this Sunday morning?

My Brother is away for the weekend and rang last night to say “come on over for the day, there’s a great pub nearby that specialises in homemade pies and they’re amazing”. Instantly I’m thinking omg no, I’ve already had a bad week and I’ve got to get weighed tomorrow I can’t eat pie! Keith’s saying we can’t not go because I don’t want to have pie. He can’t understand why I can’t just not have any… not have any! can you imagine when they’re all sat tucking in, it’s just never going to happen is it. So we’re going, and despite good intentions this morning there’s no doubt I’ll be having pie later, and then just because I’ve had pie that of course means it’s a cheat day, so I’ll have a few drinks and some sweeties on the way home…

…and that’s why I’ll never be thin

…and I’ll regret it tomorrow when I have to confess my sins at Slimming World!




Time for another ‘Use Any Image’ challenge at the Ribbon Girl and as always there are 3 lovely prizes up for grabs;



A bit of an unusual card for me this time, I bought a lovely Santoro heart embossing folder (which you can see I used) and these cute images were printed on the packaging…


Ribbon Girl October


Aren’t they sweet, I couldn’t bear to waste them so also made a little matching tag and the red dotty paper was also from the packaging (is that taking frugal to a whole new level?)

The border die is Magnolia DooHickey and I used some gorgeousness from the Ribbon Girl; cheesecloth, white seam binding, tulle, red button twine, 5mm red crystals, apple charm, dragonfly charm

You can see all the details for the challenge on the Ribbon Girl blog and of course lots of inspiration from the team


That’s it from me, enjoy the rest of your weekend crafters

Little Folk…



Good afternoon crafty friends, thanks for stopping by…

I’ve had a hectic couple of weeks, my lovely friend Gretha came over from Holland for a visit with 2 of her friends. I know Karin already as she used to come with Gretha when we had the LOTV open days, it was also great to meet Angelique




I’ve got Jess home for a few weeks as she’s had an operation on her arm, she’s got us running round after her! She has a puppy now, I put a picture on Facebook when she got him but I don’t think I’ve mentioned him yet here on my blog. He’s been to visit before and he’s absolutely adorable but it’s chaotic with him here full time… Manny is not thrilled!




So, not much has been happening in the crafting department as you can imagine! These cards were from a Quick Cards commission earlier in the year and I’ve already shown a couple so here are the rest of the set…






The papers were a bit brighter that I would usually choose but I enjoyed using them with the Little Folk stamps and I was pleased with how these cards turned out

Hope you like them, as always thank you so much for taking the time to comment

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone
