Pet sympathy…

Good evening crafty friends, thanks so much for all your lovely comments on my last post. I know it’s time consuming and I appreciate you taking the time to stop by

I’ve resolved to visit and leave a couple of comments each day because if you get behind it’s such a huge job trying to catch up on all your favourite blogs


Just a quick post today, my Brother sadly lost their dog coincidentally a day after I’d ordered some lovely pet related Whimsy stamps from Dies to Die for

I made a couple which I’ll share another time, and then did this one from an idea I‘d seen on Pinterest

This is a Stampin’ Up set called Bella and Friends and I loved the idea of the little doggy floating up to heaven tied to the balloon…


Sentiment - Whimsy ‘fill my heart’

Rainbow – Stampin’ Up ‘sunshine and rainbows’

Clouds – Memory Box ‘puffy clouds’

Sorry it’s such a rubbish picture, the light is so bad at the moment and it’s nearly all white


Hope you like it, enjoy the rest of your week everyone

more LOTV girls…

Good morning everyone, thank you for popping by and I hope you all had a lovely Easter despite the atrocious weather we’ve been having in the UK


I didn’t manage to dig any wedding pictures out to share, they’re under a lot of stuff in the attic that I keep meaning to sort through

Our silver anniversary didn’t quite go to plan, Keith had the day off so as it was sunny we decided to have a drive out. On the way home a young girl crashed into the back of us when we’d stopped to let the car in front of us turn. Keith’s little sports car is his pride and joy but thankfully everyone was ok although it certainly didn’t do my neck any good, it’s just been starting to feel better and I’m back to square one


I have a couple more cards today using the new girls from LOTV, I like these older girls, they’re great for teens who are past the cute stage

These one is called Coffee

and this one is Curls

The papers I used are from a lovely Stampin’ Up pad and the heart die is Sue Wilson

I have so many part used pads that when I start one now I’m going to try and make a few cards from it. I hate cutting them if they’re pretty, and even when I start a new pad I find myself using the ones first that are my least favourite so I can save the nicest ones

It’s like your best clothes or your favourite perfume, they never end up getting used!


It’s a rare sunny day here today so I’m going to do a bit of gardening this afternoon. I do miss my garden in the Winter and I have some cutting back to do

Enjoy your Thursday crafters
