Twist ‘n’ Pop Birthday

Hello Crafters

Hope you are all having a great week producing beautiful moments in time!

This week I decided to have a go at this twist ‘n’ pop craze that every one seemed to be doing, a little behind I know but none the less I got there! First I started by having a look at images and YouTube and then I decided I wanted something different for the grandchildren so said to myself ‘ Let’s have a go!’

I was so pleased as I measured and made it all, and it worked first time.

Well I hope you have a wonderful week and look forward to seeing your creations!

Birthday Time!

Hello Crafters

Hope all is good in your world and that life is making you smile…..’cos frowning makes wrinkles, and we do not want them now do we!

Just a  quick pop in to share with you a card I made a little while ago, when I hadn’t long discovered the world of Lawn Fawn ( Goodness help me, I haven’t escape since :o, seriously haven’t tried though)

It was a family members birthday and I remember coming home and thinking Yikes! need to post that tomorrow, and it had been a cruelling day in the office too, so I just knuckled down, and this is what I came up with.

I think I finally finished at midnight but had a huge sense of satisfaction that I had actually done it at all.

Here’s the things I used:

Quite surprised that it all lined up and only a tiny smidge of ink in one spot, so very proud of myself on that day!

What makes are you proud of? I would love to see them.

Well have a great week and I will see you soon.

Not A Box!

Hello Crafter

Hope you are all having a super duper Mother’s Day no matter where you are or where you’re at!

Now last week I said that I was going to bring you a box, but I clean forgot a tiny teenie little thing……that yesterday was my birthday, and although I got to my craft room, it was only enough time for a quick make to share with you today, and then today being Mum’s Day, I got dragged kicking and screaming to have a meal with my sons (if you believe that you will believe anything)! So two hard torturous days of being forced to eat naughty things and enjoying them way too much, that which I should not, but I’ve been working hard to keep this new found figure of mine, so I have a few (a real few! pounds to spare, which are well and truly used up)….this girl knows how to boogie on down with food lol 🙂

So here today I have to share with you a stamp Mr Kim kindly bought for my birthday:

It’s called ‘Going To Seed‘ by Woodware and although it is an older stamp, it is one of those I kept meaning to get, but kept getting pushed to the back of the queue, so finally this injustice has been put right, and I am now the proud owner! ‘Birthday Kisses‘ stamp also by Woodware too. Distress inks Barn Door, Dried Marigold and Scattered Straw made the background strip by masking off and brushing the colours backwards and forwards until I get the right depth of colour. Mr Kim also bought me a craft pack of card and papers, which I also used to make the above card. He has been taught well me thinks 🙂

I also was given an updated light box made by my brother’s own fair hands (so means a lot), and although I omitted to say that light boxes don’t have a top, it in fact works well, as you can see in the photos.

The above photos were taken without the light on to give a more ‘end of day’ theme.

I was also spoilt with money from my sons, a new pair of boots (desperately needed as I had actually completely walked the heels off the old pair) from Mr Kim, and a lovely camisole top and beautiful print over shirt from my other brother and sister-in-law. Wasn’t I just so spoilt (Yes I am smiling like a Cheshire cat) and of course the spoiling continued today, a whole weekend of pure spoiling, my can a girl get use to that!

Although I had to share today with my little best buddy, Will, it is his 2nd birthday, and we bought him a squeaky skunk toy (which he tried to emulate later by rubbing in ‘you know what’ in the park), and then had to have a lovely shower, followed by leftovers from Mum’s day dinner meat (of which he made light work)

I swear he’s saying “Did I give you permission to take pictures Mrs!”

He’s such a joy and makes me laugh all the time, and his latest feat to say yes with a nod of the head when he wants something. Won’t be long before he’s talking I swear 🙂

That’s it for now, so enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and I will catch up with you soon.

Happy Mother’s Day 🙂

Hugs

Kim
