You’re gonna have that dreadful song in your head for the next 24hrs.
A busy weekend Christmas prezzie hunting has passed & I’m 99% there now.
Card’s all made, written, enveloped & stuck down ready to post, gifts wrapped & if he wasn’t such a damned ‘Bah Humbug’, then Mr C would have been shimmied in the loft for the tree n’ baubles!!
Apparently I have to be patient & wait til’ December….Grrrr
So to occupy myself I have been rummaging thru my vast crafting stash and re-visiting some old stamps & other bits n’ bobs that I’m guilty of owning.
Catch yer next time X

Sheesh I’ve missed you all..sniff!
It’s been a busy year chez nous. I’ve been gardening almost non-stop, our son n’ heir has started at a new school and fav’ daughter has applied to university. It seems like only yesterday they were wee babes.
Life sure is flying by...sigh.
Anyway, I’ve dusted off my crafting corner et voila!
It’s good to be back.

A card….at last.
Tiz Valentine’s Day tomorrow (as if you needed reminding) so I’ve put down my trowel, washed my muddy mitts, rustled up a bit of mojo et voila!
A card for much beloved using hearts & sentiment stamps from Clearly Besotted & romantic couple stamp from Eat Cake Graphics.
That’s it, I’m off back to the greenhouse.
I hope you feel the love tomorrow…XXX
Zero time to make cards at the mo’ - these were made last summer.
I’m concentrating more on my gardening work & gardening blog nowadays (Tidy Gardens by Jane) so new cards to post will be rare.
These were made using Flourishes stamps that were bought for me by much beloved Christmas 2012 (yes…I know, 2012!!)
Anyway, I hope to be back once in a while.

Ahoy and a Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas, seems a lifetime ago already.
I just loved all the build up to the big day, I don’t care that the shops started selling their Christmas wares in August but I confess that once the day is over I do hanker for normality again. That said, I like having the Christmas tree all lit up & was pondering removing the baubles n’ tinsel & having less festive coloured lights on it for the next 11 months. Mr C gave me one of ‘those’ looks, so I guess that’s a ‘No!’
Here’s a card that I made recently for a buddy using the fabulous ‘Airfresh Fiona’ from Doctor Digi’s House of Stamps.
Can’t stop… I have a new greenhouse to stroke.
Wishing you all a fantabulous 2014!!
All ready for Christmas now, cards made, tree up & decorated, fairy-lights everywhere & presents wrapped. Well, everyone else's presents except Mr C. Sheesh…is he hard to buy for.
I’d love to know what gifts you’ve for adult males this year. If only to ‘borrow’ your ideas.
Above are a couple of samples of the cards that I made for my husbands business clients this year. They had to look professional, elegant and smart & with the help of Clearly Besotted’s Holiday Sentiments stamp set I’m quite chuffed with the end results.
Right…off to buff the baubles.
It was cold out gardening this morning, I had held back with my first job of the day as it was raining & then, when the skies cleared, I thought it’d be safe to step outside.
Rain, sleet & snow does not make for a pretty gardener…needless to say I returned soaked to the core with a frozen bottom desperately in need of a radiator to sizzle itself upon!
I’ll leave you with an image of my cold, red bum & another Christmas card that I’ve made for this year that I’m entering in the Clearly Besotted Christmas challenge.
Stamps - Clearly Besotted Holiday Sentiments, Leafy Accents
Dies - Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents

I’ve finished making this years Christmas cards.
Yes! You heard right…F.I.N.I.S.H.E.D.
Tiz a miracle!
These are a couple of samples of the cards I’ve made for my gardening clients this year. I couldn’t resist using the fabulous Leafy Accents stamps again & Holiday Sentiments set from Clearly Besotted. Gold card candi & Orange Peel stickles adds a touch of festive sparkle
