Hats are in .

Hi there , welcome to my room .
Thank you for popping in .

Another hot day in Adelaide . No gopher ride today as it is Tuesday and that means a craft morning with beautiful friends , Sandy and Fran .

Doug was not his usual cheeky self though . I think that the heat got to him and he is tired from the last ride still . I do have to watch him closely in hot weather as he does not like drinking water and if I don't push/ NAG  him to do that he tends to get a bit lethargic . Here is hoping that there is a cool change for tomorrow and he will feel better .


Tonight I am sharing a vintage style card using printed material
 from Kraftyhands CD , Femme Fatale.



Card base is SU , Marina Mist .
Just added a few rhinestones from my stash .

Vintage Christmas

Remember when I said that I was so over Winter?
Heard the saying , "careful what you wish for."?

Well, I take it all back!!

Hello , welcome to my room . Thanks so much for calling in .


We have had record hot Spring days and I am thinking that I am not going to like Summer either .

But this morning was beautiful on the banks of the River Torrens . Photos  are on my face book page .

Tonight am sharing a couple of Christmas cards .

Printed material from Kraftyhands Create-It    magazine issue three.

                             This one was printed as for a 6x6 inch card.
                                  Love the images and paper.

 
This second card was for a A5 card  but I printed out as page set up on A5
and every thing came out to scale beautifully.
 

Both card bases were SU card stock from my stash .

Talking about kraftyhands . There is still time to enter October challenge -Tagtastic


Have a great week every one .

 Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Time for Him .

Hi there , welcome to my room .
Thanks for calling in .

Quite cold today . Doug decided not to get up this morning while Sandy and Fran were here for craft  session  . So he and Twiggy just rested and listened to the wireless and dozed on and off.

The girls and I enjoyed each others company while cutting and adhering images to create cards. Thanks to Fran bringing the jar of  gherkin  we could have our usual Jatz , cheese and gherkin serve with our coffee.

Will share two of the cards finished today .

First is a masculine card printed from  kraftyhands CD, Man about Town

                                                   


The card base I made 13cm square. Kit was  printed at A5 page set up .

The second card
                                                      
                                                          

                  Sorry not a great photo . This was printed from kraftyhands CD that came
 with Create-it       Magazine , Issue Three.      Also printed with page set up set for A5.

Late afternoon now and time to start dinner so....

Best Wishes.

Hello to you all , thank you for calling in . I love that you did and if you left a comment that's fabulous .
Welcome to my room .
It really is barmy weather .Very warm outside ..may be 28 degrees, Grey skies and very windy . Looks as though we may get rain as well .
I still have cards and  kits to make for craft morning tomorrow so better get cracking . Will quickly share this masculine card firstly.



Would this be called a double fold card?
Card base and blue layers  and sentiment with label on front  CTMH .  White sentiment die cut and blue  striped paper from SU. Front image  free from Vintage made for you . And inside vintage car from Graphic45. 
Now it was not until I added photos to my post that I realised that the tyre image from Kaisercraft die cuts is not of the same era .
TOO LATE ..A blind man would be happy to see it anyway!
