SUMMER NELLIE ** Sparkly Shoes**

This is one of the Sugar Nellie stamps I got last week, she is called Summer Nellie. I like the way she sits ,you could perch her on virtually anything, so I decided to put her sitting on a fence 'cause I remember doing this myself when I was really young. We had a farm close by with horses in the fields and I would sit for hours watching them and feeding them.The fence is from the Cuddly Buddly Horses, and the backing papers were all freebies from various mags.The stitched stamp and just because stamp are from HOTP. Oh yes! and I gave her sparkly Hope you enjoyed your visit and thanks for stopping by. Take care x Vee

....Ebony.. I love this stamp. and all the other Ebony stamps as well. I just got my stamps today. and couldn't wait to have a play with them. This card was done with one of the stamped images that Natalie sent me( previous post) then the postie came and delivered my stamps.....Yeh heee. Been crafting all day...hubby is bowling so don't feel guilty about being up here in my wee crafty space.
Just me and Matt all day( my youngest, just graduated and has no job as yet) Awwww..Gave him some cash to go out with his pals but he
decided to just get in some beers and chill.....) His degree is Computer Annimation and Media Technology and involves him doing a showreel to show his work to prospective employers, and he is currently working on that.
I have added a link to some annimation he done a few years ago if anyone is interested in having a wee look.
As a Mum I am obviously really proud of his achievements and I know it is a very difficult area to get into. He had his first annimation on 'youtube ' when he was only 14 years old , when he was still at school and it got rave reviews. So here's hoping he will get into the annimation world jobwise, very soon.

Feel free to leave any comments for Matt here if you wish, and I will pass them on to him.

Take care. xxVee


Crafting all day.... Hopefully with no

I was really thrilled yesterday when I received these stamped images from Natalie Grantham( check out her blog on the right side of the page her cards a gorgeous) Natalie came to my rescue this week when I tried to order some Sugar Nellie stamps but they were out of stock, so she very kindly offered to send me some images to play with while I waited for them to come back in. They arrived yesterday along with a lovely Wallet Card. Unfortunately I could'nt play with them as I had my two grandchildren with me yesterday and was also going to my friends house in the evening...( for a wee glass of vino and a gab).. Today however, is a different story . All the housework is done...( well all that's getting done )..and I'm raring to go but I just had to show you the lovely card and images before I get started. Well I'm off now to have some fun. Take care x Vee

Clare's Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday..
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and doing lots of lovely crafting.
I've just finished this card for Clare Curd's Sketch Challenge over on the Do Crafts website. Never worked from a sketch before and I quite enjoyed it. Usually I just fiddle about trying to fit things in where I think they look good on the card/ scrapbook page, so I found this way of doing it really quick. I've got three more cards to do for girls at work for Monday so I'd better get on, going out tonight with friends for a wee drink and a gab, haven't seen them for ages so lots to catch up on. Have a great weekend. x Vee
