Yippee, Yippee, YIPPPEEE!

It's my birthday tomorrow (19th)!! Happy Birthday to me...:-)
Just thought I'd let the world know about it!
It was "Ro-Ro's" first birthday today so we have been celebrating with cat food & warm milk all day...yukk! Is it any wonder I am slightly loopy?!

Y's from me!!

Oh My, Have I Been Busy!

This is my cute little Koala bear called "Harry", who is over 30 years old & had been on every plane trip I have been on! He is only about two inches tall & the camera around his neck is one I made many years ago from modelling clay! Here he is with his Santa hat on & his sunnies, hanging in the Xmas tree!
This is "Ro-Ro" playing with a ball filled with tiny polystyrene balls, he loves it 'cause he can get his claws into it & actually hold it!

Here he is again, chewing on the ball! One of these days it will burst open!

"Oh hai", sez "Ro-Ro", "Ai iz lookin' very cute for teh camera, my mom taiks lot's of foto's of me"!!

A little ceramic ornament I stamped on.

"Harry" hanging on to "Ro-Ro's" only lasted seconds then "Ro-Ro" was off galloping round the house with "Harry" being flung all over the place!! Oh the Spirit of Christmas...

These two canvases are less than two inches square. This is a bit of Kiwiana, the jandals, the shells & the glitter on the canvases represent the beach - all the things I was bought up with. I spent alot of time on the beach & in the water as a kid growing up, great fun!

Here is another canvas I did, this one is about 3 1/2 inches tall by about 2 inches wide maybe. Once again it represents all the things I grew up with - sun, sand, seashells & the beach. Oh yes, and the currency I knew as a kid, pounds, shillings & pence & on here is a sixpence from 1958, two years younger than I am!

This card was made using a Stampin' Up set, Snow Swirled.

Another SU set, Pocket Silhouettes. I had alot of fun with these sets!

Oh boy, this was a marathon effort - 5o bookmarks stamped & assembled in a couple of days! I made these for the coffee group I go to - they loved them! Once again using SU stamps.

Another Xmas card using the SU stamp set, Snow Swirled.

I used some background paper & a strip of wavy card I cut, & punched out some green Xmas trees & added them to the red strip. I added white dots to the tree's. Forgive me if I am not doing my usual detailed brief of each card, but I have had some health problems for some time & I am also very tired, so I am just giving you the barest details here! Of course, if there is something you would like to know about the cards, please email me at & I will do my best to answer your questions!

Another card made with the SU Pocket Silhouette stamp set, this time using a domino in the middle. I stamped on the domino with Stazon black ink. I enjoyed making this card & think I did four of them in total!

I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for this card then added the stamped image (Pocket Silhouettes SU) to the corner. They matched perfectly! Another fun card to make!

Another Pocket Silhouette card from SU!

The inside of the note card set I made using my scor-pal.

Here is the front of the note card set. I used my nesties for the shapes & just stamped on the white one. More fun:-)

"Ro-Ro" says, 'sometimes you just need a hand to hold', so he gave me his cute!

"Oh hai! ai iz just sayin' hai to Santa, ai nawt touchin' him mom"...Ok, so he knows he is not allowed to touch Santa!! But he can resist anything but temptation - a bit like his mom! He said he was just 'adjusting' him as he was a bit crooked...yeah right!

This is "Super Cat" in his Super Cape! He was very tired after chasing moths & bugs...

Mommy's 'Lil Bloke! head no body just legs, er, paws! Ro-Ro was lying on his back with his front paws in the air so I took his photo! He often sleeps on his back, especially when he sleeps in his baby sling...
...and here he is peering over the top of my bookcase he was sleeping on! He likes being up high! You can see his wobbly heart shape under his chin!

"Oh Mom, I am SO cute..." sez Ro-Ro!

Wow! What A Weekend!!

This is a little bag with four note cards inside. I made the bag using my Cricut machine. I used my oval nesties to cut out the ovals & my Martha Stewart punch for the zig zag white bit. I stamped a butterfly on each card & added a gem stone. These were fun to make! The bag handle is attached with brads & the handle moves so you can easily get the cards in & out.

I made this card last week but forgot to upload it.

Sadly this card does not show up very well on here. It is stamped in silver & has some Viole Interference powder over the top to give it some sparkle. This is just one of the many cards I made this weekend using a Stampin' Up stamp set. Thanks for visiting, {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

More Weekend Cards!

Although this is hard to see I have uploaded it anyhow. I used my Dazzle Versmark ink pad on white gloss card then brayered over it (it's a Christmas tree image!) with my Birthstone Kaleidacolor stamp pad. I also used some embossed vellum behind it. It looks a whole lot better IRL!This is one of my circle cards using the snowflake stamps. SO much fun!

I have used a Sage Shadow stamp pad (Stampin' Up) on this card.

...another circle/snowflake card!

I stamped this tree in three different colours using Brilliance stamp pads. Thanks for visiting, hope your weekend is going well! {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

I Stamped My Heart Out!

All these cards are from one set of Stampin' Up stamps. I have stamped them in different inks & colours.
This is better IRL! The pink is not showing up too well on here. I think the colour is called Baby Pink. I have used a multi colour stamp pad to stamp the tree.

I have stamped the tree is two different blue colours & added gem stones & a bow.

The stamp set had two word stamps, I like both of them & had a hard job choosing which one to stamp on each card!

This is one of my favourite cards I stamped, the green is quite a subtle colour & the stick on pearls seemed to just be right for it.
Thanks for visiting! {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

A Marathon Weekend...

The above card is ONE of many I have made in the last 48 hours! The stamp set is from Stampin' Up & I have used the snowflake stamps to stamp this card. I added a scallop circle (nestabilities) & some stick on gemstones.
This is a black & white card using the same stamp set.

Another circle card using just the snowflake stamps from he same set. This one is a dark blue colour.

These cards were easy to make, it just took me all weekend! I have used 3 different green stamp pads for this one.

On the red card I have made the snowflakes into baubles & used gold chain stickers to make them look like they are hanging. So many cards from 6 stamps! Lot's of fun!
Thanks for looking, {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

We Have A Follower...

Miss Bella sashay's down the 'cat' walk, strutting her stuff for the camera! (Wiggle that butt girl!)
"Ai just washin' teh windows" says Ro-Ro! (It was a moth & he loves them!)

And here he is again, doing his weightlifting!! But seriously, my two gorjuss Purrito's have a FAN & her name is....MONICA & she lives in Los Angeles!! (We got an email from her today!) Thank YOU Monica & WE love YOU too!!
{{HUGS}} from the two Purrito's:-)

Paper Work..

..."Someone" in this house does alot of "paperwork"! "Someone" has a toilet paper fetish & it is getting expensive!! Whoever did it was very silent & quiet about un-rolling (another) whole toilet roll! I was only one room away I never heard a thing! For the followers of my "Litter Kwitter" toilet training, you will know this is the second time this has occurred. I have my suspicions, but that's all they are, suspicions! I heard nothing I saw nothing! I have learnt (finally!) to keep the toilet rolls as far away from the toilet as possible...maybe even put them in another room?? I said two words when I saw this..."What the..??" Both Purrito's had that choir boy/girl innocence written all over their faces, in fact, both of them were sound asleep so it was very hard to tell "Who Done It.." Toilet paper is now on the top of my shopping list...more good rubber stamp money down the toilet..literally!!
Thanks for visiting, {{HUGS}} from all three of us to you:-)

It's Chritmas, Right?

..."cause I keep making all these Christmas cards! I'm hoping Santa is on his way or I'll be stuck with all these cards! Ok, this card (above) was made by cutting (I used my nesties) out a rectangle frame & then using the mask to stipple various colours inside the rectangle. I then stamped some small Xmas stamps inside the masked bit. I added a purple Caribbean card frame around it & layered it to a white card. I added the "Happy Christmas" words (sticker) last. The tiny Christmas stamps are from Stampendous.

This card was made using some red Xmas stickers which I have stuck onto some clear acetate. I first stamped the words (in red) onto a white card, then stuck this glittery sticker paper over top of the words. On to that I stuck the sticker on the acetate. I have layered it to a green card. Both of these cards were quick & easy to make:-) The Christmas words are from Hero Arts. Thank you for dropping by, {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

More Cards From Class!

The first two photo's are of the same card. The inside of the card is the first photo, done with a spiral word stamp from Rubbadubbado. A fun card to make & quick & EASY! It says, "A Very Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year". We had fun making these on the weekend! The last card is done with a gold snowman sticker & using the gorjuss Caribbean card again. I will need "therapy" when I run out of that card!!
