I'd like to share this with Sassy Cheryl's show me spot especially as the logo is a pirate :c)

Pieces of eight, pieces of eight

Arghhhhh Jim Bags - Part 1

 The lovely Crafty Fresian has a thing about pirates as well as cows and mice and Promarkers :c)
1 pouchy bag made to order with spotty lining - I realise now the spots should be black but thought it looked better with the white.

Something for the Cat

That is one really fed up face - can you tell I woke her up? 
At least she has a new crochet mouse to play with

Action shot!!
A really sunny wave to my new followers - thanks for dropping by!
Don't forget to enter my candy :c)

Not another card

There's a distinct lack of cards at the moment as I've been playing with other things.
I've had this Tilda for absolutely ages and every time I see her on Tammy's Blog I promise I'll ink her up - well finally!!

Image: Tilda with Teddy Bear
Paper: Pink Petticoat
Sentiment: Elzybells


I really can't believe it's still raining!!! Will be checking if my feet are webbed soon!
Don't forget to enter my candy link to the left :c)

PS I haven't really posted twice today blogger just won't post anything I've scheduled over the last few days will have another go with my Teddy Bo Tuesday post but apologise if it's late :c)

Some more Notebooks

Using some pre coloured Digistamp Boutique images that I discovered lurking in a folder during my great clearout. Handy coz my printer has no black ink at the mo.

I would like to enter them into the Digistamp Boutique customer competition for April.

Saturday hugs

Friendship hearts

There was a set of Friendship heart charts free with one of the cross stitch magazines a while ago so I just had to stitch the tulip one and love this rose one. It reminds me of a Cath Kidston print. I'm waiting for some heart shaped mounts to arrive (fingers crossed they'll fit) and I may well frame them if I can find any decent square frames without having to part with an arm and a leg. There's a green one with hearts in the pipeline but it's been sidelined for some crochet - more about that another day.

Frames hugs
Debbie xx

PS I have absolutely no idea what is going on with Mr Blogger I scheduled this for Wednesday and it never published and neither did my Teddy Bo post for this morning grrrrrrrr

Fairytale Friday

You still have a few days to enter the Pink and Brown Teddy Bo challenge.
My mojo has been suffering just lately so I've made these notebooks using the 3 Little Piggies images and my paw print embossing folder.
The little notebooks measure 4x3 inches and came in a pack of 10 from Poundland - I really wish I had bought more of them

Fabn Funky - no DP
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes

Furry Friday Hugs

D'Arcy Day

 I'm late, it's the wrong colours and I've used an old image but in my defence my printer is out of ink and postie didn't bring it today so I had to use one I prepared earlier but it's still D'Arcy Day just and we're in the middle of our pink or blue plus cream challenge.

The sentiment stamp is new - its a Whimsy one ordered on 19th from USA and arrived yesterday - I haven't quite got the hang of my alignment tool yet hence the strategically placed star :c)

Image: Listen to the birds
Paper: Memory Box
Sentiment: Raindrop Echo from Whimsy
Shape: Sizzix Framelits

Even more soggy than yesterday hugs
Debbie xx

Attempting to Crochet

Well I'm hooked - sorry! This was my first attempt having realised that I needed to crochet right-handed despite being a Lefty. The dodgy bit in the middle is where I tried out trebles and didn't pull all the rows out.

Then I spotted a tutorial for these little cuties - here. Were they beyond me? Would they take ages and require lots of swearing? No and No!

Am going to make some diva ones with fluffy tops - wish me luck :c)

Still soggy hugs

Tilda Shopping

You'll see a bit of a theme developing over the next few days as I've found a stack of notebooks that I bought to alter ages ago and we're probably talking years here.

I have about half a dozen Tildas and here's one of them - I'd like to enter the Magnolia Down Under ABAC challenge and the crafts and me embossing challenge.

I've just spent the last 2 hours footling round in the garage so am covered in dust and cobwebs - at least I didn't find the mice :c)
Squeaky hugs

Teddy Bo Tuesday

We're half way through the Pink and Brown challenge at Teddy Bo and even though there are no new bears this week there are some boys for those difficult cards and a cat :c)
It's still Team B in charge at the moment which is fortunate as my card mojo has done a runner so I have the 3rd of my rose cushions to share instead (I can stitch in front of the tv when I'm watching Chelsea play)

A big wave to my new followers - don't forget to leave me a comment on my ribbon candy for your chance to win.
Talking of  candy I won Rebekah from Berrylicious' candy which the postie delivered this morning and it's absolutely gorgeous. The envelope was packed yum yum and thank you ever so much hun!
counted hugs

TUSAL again already!

I can't believe we're round to yet another new moon and by my calculations it's rained here every day for the last 23 days!!!! There's some blue in my jar this month as I got a bit bored with the set of cushions I was stitching and have been stitching a couple of smaller designs.
Finally I've found a craft that Abby will join in with - we've tried cardmaking and knitting together but she just didn't take to them - this is her first ever attempt at cross stitch (I did the french knots) and she designed the writing herself. She has just started stitching her name from an alphabet chart so will post that once it's finished

Damp stitchy hugs
Debbie xx


As promised although it was a few days ago now here's my 250 followers candy - there's oodles of ribbon here all at least a metre long. There's xmas, organza, stars and all sorts which I've now managed to tame into an A4 bag

It's going to run until 21st May when hopefully we will have moved - whoop whoop.

If you would like to be entered for a chance to win - please pop the piccy in your sidebar and be a follower after all that is why it's been posted and leave me a comment. It doesn't matter if you don't normally leave comments as I don't get time to say as much as I would like lol!

In case you're interested the font on my photo is called Dymo

50 years!

One of our girls on MSE is celebrating her golden wedding this year - amazing feat!
I sometimes wonder if I can manage 50 more minutes LOL!

This is the card I made with a vintage photo I found on the web and a stamp from Stamps Away that I just had to have about 5 years ago that hasn't been used so I would like to enter it into Flyin Fresian's MSE challenge

D'Arcy Day

I can't believe it's Thursday once again and time for a new challenge at D'Arcy's Diaries. We have a theme of either pink and cream or blue and cream. I don't really do pink but cerise is ok (the pen has blue ink).
I've used a new release today (no 037) on the cover of my notebook and have no idea what the paper is.

Teddy Bo Tuesday

No card from me today as I'm getting stuck into the clearing and tidying as tall child has finally gone back to school. The theme at the Teddy Bo challenge this time round is Pink and Brown and Team B are in charge for the next fortnight. Hopefully I will manage to play with some bears before Friday unless I disappear under all the piles of tat in the garage.........

Tall child has been using up the beads that we unearthed:

Do you like the crop-a-dile display stand?

Cinderella Bag

A huge wave at my new followers - thank you for joining me!
I see I've passed the big 250 and 900 posts! (what a load of waffle lol!) so will be back after the weekend with some candy as a thank you - it's looking likely to be ribbony type stuff :c)

This bag matches the other Cinderella items I've made and is also for sale - send me a message if you're interested. I promise I will get my head round my Etsy shop as soon I we get this house move sorted.
Does anyone have any tips on writing the listing blurb pleeeezzzzz

Tangled ribbon hugs

Monster Dad

Monster from Cre8tive Hands at my daughter's request as the card was for her dad / the first Mr Padster's birthday.
The alphabet from Funky Fairies was coloured in paint resized and cut out so it fitted on a DL card - I have loads of these blanks that I never use so watch out for Monster mum LOL!

I would like to enter it into the MilkCoffee bold and bright challenge

Foggy Hugs

(makes a change from rain but still rubbish for washing drying!)

D'Arcy's Diaries - Mid Challenge Reminder

It's the second week of our use at least 3 flowers challenge at D'Arcy's Diaries - I'm sure this theme was chosen especially with me in mind PAH!

Trusty Papermania blossoms and card candy to the rescue lol!
I've used DARCYSDIARIES_032 and chopped her tail off as she's a mermaid - I seem to be doing a lot of that just at the moment but I have a real problem with colouring shoes and feet (or tails)
The paper which I've embossed to hopefully look like bubbles is First Edition and the sentiment is a discontinued Pollycraft stamp.

Pooh Bear

Pencil case, Purse and another little bag

Not 100% happy about the gingham fabric on the purse but it's kind of cute, matches the lining and I'd run out of Pooh fabric :c)

These are all for sale if anyone is interested - give me a shout!
All items are available in different fabric if you like a particular style.

Little Gingham Bag

Even if I say so myself I was quite pleased with this - what is it I hear you ask?
It's a foldaway shopping bag in it's own little pouch.
The actual bag inside folds out to 12 x 12 and has double stitched seams so it will hold quite a bit especially as it has a nice wide bottom

This little cutie can be yours for the bargain price of £5 posted in the UK.
The sewn items I've been showing on here are mainly samples I can make them in any fabric you wish so long as you give me a chance to get it in as I can't keep too much in stock until after we move.
I have loads of colours of gingham and am hoping to get my little mitts on some polka dots tomorrow :c)

Pink pricked Hugs

Teddy Bo Tuesday - Spring Flowers

Having forgotten to check exactly what the theme was for the current challenge - I kind of forgot the spring colours although I did remember the flowers

I've used TEDDYBOBEA_121, some sadly neglected First Edition Papers and a must have set of Carnation Creation Dies that I've maybe used once.
Rather than a card today I've made a door hanger type thingy although the weather was far too rubbish to get a decent photo of it hanging on the handle

I've used TEDDYBOBEA_121, some sadly neglected First Edition Papers and a must have set of Carnation Creation Dies that I've maybe used once. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley

Happy Fussy and Fancy Dance

Have you seen my new badge ---------------->>>>>>>>
If not here it is again
I've known for a few days but have managed to keep it quiet :c) I start in May when hopefully the house move will be all over and done with and I can create in my new huge craft room

Hubby had a major roll eyes moment when I told him and couldn't understand why I was grinning.

A big Easter Sunday wave to my new followers - only 5 more until I will have some more candy - aka stuff I've found since I've been sorting the house out that I'd forgotten all about - ribbon is looking a likely contender at the moment **grins**

Debbie xx

Wedding Card

Another one I printed off ages ago and hadn't used.
Image was from Digistamp Boutique but not sure if it's been discontinued and I'm going to enter it into the customer competition for April.

Happy Easter Hugs

My grand plan paid off (puts on innocent face) my tall child doesn't like Lindt bunnies so I got chocolate after all - nom nom nom - LOL!
