Pencil Portrait


It's a great relief that my final assignment for my painting and drawing course has been submitted. This portrait was the final piece and was done in pencils. Fingers crossed it will be good enough. 



I still miss you every day my precious girl. Wish you were still here to give you lots of cuddles. I will store them up till we meet again.

Have a great day everyone.

Art Journal page


Had a lovely time playing with some Marabu water-soluble  wax crayons to create the background and the flower. I then used pen and black ink to line the flower and white ink to give highlights. I also used both black and white inks to splatter and write on the page. Added a touch of red to the buds using Pitt pen.  There is a lovely sheen on the background due to using gold and silver waxes. 

Would like to enter my page in the

Using my Gelli prints


It's nice getting back to a bit of crafting. I used two of the papers I printed using my Gelli prints for the background and flowers. Used Imagination crafts texture paste  and Hero Arts stamps on the backgrounds. The words are from a stamp (Visible Image). The butterfly stickers was found in Home Bargains store.

Charity find and new box



Was asked to decorate this wooden box with the heart cutout. I first pained the box with a mixture of red paint and gesso and then pearl white on top. Stuck the twig heart, which i dry brushed with white and pink, to the box and made the ribbon flower and added the clay rose on top. All the  dies and product were from The Works. 
Would like to enter this in this months





How is it that you take things to a charity shop and end up leaving with much more ! :) We were just about to leave The Woodgreen Animal Charity shop in Royston , when I spotted a basket of stamps. There were brand new and great brands. Next to this was another box of unused dies and EK Success punches. It was like Christmas I bought quite a lot. lol 

Made this card with four of the stamps and one of the punches I bought today. It is a bit different from my usual style but I just had a go and I like how it turned out.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

I am on a roll with trying new things. Today I decided to play with my gel press which I have had for months. I did all these in moments. It is so much fun and I will be doing lots more in the future. 

If like me you have had yours sitting there for months just get it out and play.

I made a card today and just wanted to say thank you for all the kind words of sympathy that has been left on this blog. As you can image it will take a long time to heal but we will. We have over 18 years of wonderful memories and we are very thankful for that.

So once again, thank you all!

Happy New Year


Happy New Year to all.  Mummy has been a bit busy with work and looking after me, hence her lack of commenting on your blogs. They did not think I would make it through the holidays but as you can see I am still here. Still think that outside water is so much better than that tap water they try to give me, silly humans!
My legs are not doing so well so we are off to the VET today so fingers cross all will be well.

Thank you for your visit and my Mummy promised to be back online with some great crafts soon.

Purrs Skipper (most beautiful girl in the world)

The Long Haul stamp set




The new stamp set by Beccy Muir is called 'The Long Haul' and has various truck images. The sentiments which are included with the set are going to be so useful. The Long Haul is not just a set for men but also for those ladies that love trucks as well. 
You can find 'The Long Haul' stamp set and may other in Beccy's Place Shop.

I stamped two of the images and sentiments onto white card. They were all coloured with watercolours and then mounted onto cards. As you can see form my cards, the colours and patters you use can make it a masculine or feminine card. 

Have a wonderful day and thanks to Beccy for having me on her design team for the last 4 years. 


Merry Christmas everyone
