Sorry I have not been around much of late. My Dad is still in hospital. We have now discovered he has multiple fractures in his spine and pelvis. He is obviously in a lot of pain and very well medicated. It is going to be a long time till he will hopefully recovers from this. He is now very frail and a bit wandered due to the drugs. I will try to visit you all when I have a little time.

A quick post tonight with a Less is More card. I have missed so many challenges lately by just running out of time. 
My Dad is still in hospital. He is recovering from his fall gradually but he has a chest infection now. So when he tries to cough he is in so much pain. Hopefully the anti-biotic will take effect soon. 
So my card-

Nice and simple, I used Woodware robin stamp, Magnolia border (my prize from Cute Card Thursday winner), Fiskers snowflakes.

Present time

It's been a busy week again. My Dad had another fall and is back in hospital. Luckily nothing is broken but he has lots of bruising and is in a lot of pain.
He is to have a bone scan tomorrow. It will be difficult to blog regularly for a while due to the hospital visits, but I will try my best. 

On a happier note I was lucky to win the Cute Card Thursday prize on the 14th November with my card below. I received my prize from Bunny Zoe's Crafts last week, so watch this space  when I use my goodies. 

My card tonight is my new LOTV stamp. He is a cute little penguin. 

I used LOTV penguin, Promarkers, HOTP papers, Stickles and Fiskers snowflakes & Sizzix square nesting dies.

We had a lovely day out to Perth today. I had the intention of walking around the Inches but it was freezing cold and the rain came one. So we went for a lovely lunch and warmed up instead. 

I made this card last night and I thought I would use different colours this time. Not quite Christmas, but I like it.

I used a  Bugaboo Nativity image and coloured with Promarkers. I also used Lili of the Valley & My Minds Eye papers, Sizzlets star, Nesties & Liquid Pearls.

Snow Joy

Well I am fairly cracking on with my Christmas cards, it is mainly the family ones to be done now. I still have the envelopes and inserts to do and that takes quite a lot of time!

I used Promarkers, Nesties, Memory Box tree die and Snowflake, PM & Making Memories  papers, Stickles and Fiskers snowflakes (the little ones).

For my tutorial I have used one of Birdie Brown's images Hedgehog and Little Friend. This has lovely autumnal feel, so I used nice warm colours.

It was a busy weekend here. We were preparing for the new shower being put in. So all set, I can't wait!

I am having problems with my printer and need new one. Anyone any suggestions on which one will print on card. Also when printing digital images they won't bleed with alcohol markers. I would be grateful of any help.

In between tasks I managed to make this card. Funny how sometimes inspiration comes and you know exactly what to make. 

This one is for Less is More and a couple of other challenges. 
I used Spellbinders curved border, Memory Box trees, Liquid Pearls, glitter & Cuttlebug Dots.
