I don't know if you missed me but you may have noticed I haven't been around this past week. It wasn't by choice that's for sure lol. The weather has been so glorious here in Glos that I decided to do some gardening on Tuesday it actually turned out a busy day for me because I also did the washing and also bathed my dog Polo. Anyway you know what some of us are like when we want something done it has to be done now well that is me and I had some very heavy pots I wanted repositioned and to get it done I did it myself and oooooo am I paying for it. The next day I could not move I had pulled all the muscles in my back and all down my right side so it was take it easy time. I already have a bad right arm and wrist and should have known better. I could not make cards or sit at the computer it was take the pain killers and try and get in a comfortable position. It has got much easier now and I was able to make the card in the posting below so I hope to be back to normal soon. I must say I have soooo missed visiting your blogs and leaving comments on your gorgeous creations so I think I will have lots to catch up on. Hugs to you all Lorraine x.
Hi all this is my entry for this week's 'Stamp Something' Challenge which is themed 'Happy Somethings'. I decided to use one of my new stamps from the 'Shy Bear' range this is the only one I have at the moment but hopefully at the end of the month I will remedy that (if you know what I mean lol). I think this card would make many people happy I know it does me I have used quite bright summery colours because that's what it feels like here in Glos. It hasn't rained for ages the sun keeps shinning. Hope you like it hugs Lorraine x.

Hi all this is my very first entry for the Copics Colour Challenge for this one you are required to use 3 Copic colours which are Blush R20, Brick Beige E31 and Shock Pink RV04. I only have the first one Blush but you can use the closest colour that will match. I haven't got that many at this time so I had to use RV13 Tender Pink and E43 Dull Ivory. I really enjoyed this challenge and used a Whiff of Joy stamp coloured with the Copics. The layout of the card is my own and I have used Raspberry Road Designs backing paper and some from my stash a couple of flora doodles a few pink gems a little gold organza bow and a dream sentiment stamp. I hope you like it. Hugs to you all.

Hi this is my first entry to Art Creations Friday challenge and it is an ATC. The theme for this one is the little boy image. ACF give you a picture and you have to make an ATC, card or something of your choice based around the image. Now I am nowhere near as good as Sandie on this sort of thing but after seeing all her lovely ATCs and tags I thought I would give it a go. I have used a Victorian style baking paper I also added some Victorian boys clothes and added glossy accents then added the flowers which are a similar colour to the backing paper. I would be very interested in your thoughts on this one. Hugs Lorraine x
This is my entry for this weeks Whif of Joy challenge also based on a sketch this is Willow with a basket and I have used promarkers some flowers and gems the backing paper is some of the stash that I found while spring cleaning. Hugs Lorraine x

Hiya all hope you are a great day the sun is shinning here is Glos and the washing is drying nicely and look what I have been doing. I have put several new items in my sidebar that you might like to check out this includes new challenge blogs and some new blog candy with a twist. The following blogs are offering candy for a card made with a digital stamp or download which is what I have done above. The blogs are Charmed Crafts and Live, Laugh, Stamp. The sketch is from Live, Laugh, Stamp but has the same requirement as Charmed Crafts in that you use a digital image or download on your card. The backing papers I downloaded from Raspberry Road Designs and the image is a Digital Stamp from Grab-a-Doodle-do the image has been coloured with my Copics. For more information on all these items please look in the sidebar and there are links to all. Don't miss out because you are all so talented and I know you love a challenge lol. Hugs Lorraine x
