I have been browsing through Pinterest for inspiration this week , as I do most weeks ,and I found a beautiful card by ..well I don't know . 
Learn more at Media cache -ako was the mark under it .
A craft pal , Jane,  bought it to my attention and I decided to tinker with it a little .

Hope you like my effort .
The flowers are stamped on scraps and  a tag was used so the image could be punched out .
I forgot to add ink , Old Olive , for the leaves from Lucy's Stamps ,  in the ingredients . The sentiment is from SU set , Thoughts and Prayers .

                                                               And the inside .


Hope my girls think this kit worth making up on Tuesday morning .

Water colouring

Hello there and welcome to my room . So happy that you came to visit and I hope that you like what you see in this post .

Tonight I am happy to share a card made today using water colour . I was researching for ideas earlier today , finally made my way to SU demonstrators planning place [ a closed group] where I watched a video from Hannah Jones .
Slightly changed some aspects of her card to make it my own .

Entering challenge 

Here I have used SU thick white card base and water colour paper along with the thinlits Happy Birthday  die . embellished with SU candy dots.
I cut a piece of watercolour paper 5cm x 15cm and brushed water over to dampen the panel  before colouring strips of different inks .When dry I cut small tags to adhere to front of card
                            Inks used

And for the inside 

Back ground mat has been water coloured too. 

I am hoping that this will brighten some ones day .

Everything is funny, as long as it's happening to somebody else.

Watering can and flowers

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

Raining heavily as I type . 

Had a scare today . I did not tell Hubby the details of my Dr visit today . It was for prescriptions I told him . Not exactly a fib cause I did  pick up prescriptions . 
I have had a few little chest niggles recently and a couple of "sad " moments maybe more teary than sad I guess but any way not my usual strong self  that much I know .  So I thought that my blood pressure may be up . And it is . And I am the heaviest that I have ever been ,
What a clutz I am ! Must stop having the other half of Doug's pie or half his apple turn over . 
Less sitting and more walking too 

Just here to share latest card for now .


Thick white card base.  Paper from my stash . The can of flowers image is from Pinterest ..The leaf is from Lucy's stamps inked in Old Olive SU . 

I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you.

Got to start working on that . 

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

Three little pigs ..

Hello craft pals , welcome to my room .
 I hope that all is well for you and yours . If any one has been  /is unwell I hope recovery is swift .
And if you just need a hug then a huge cyber hug is on its way to you ..

I have been busy as full time carer for hubby and the  mundane house work but did  find time for making some kits up for my craft days with some dear friends . It is the blogging that takes a back seat when  time is at a premium .

Here today I am sharing this one card , hope you like .

Card base is thick Whisper White , SU . The three little pig images are from Pinterest . I cut these out with the top piggy adhered with DS tape while other two were added with foam dots . The birthday greeting is from a set from MFT kit .

Here's hoping that one of my great grand children will love this too .

The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.

Well that's it for tonight ,. Hope that it is not so long before next post .

   Catch you again soon , cheers for now .
