Amble for Arthritis

As you all know... Katie my teenage darling drama queen has Arthritis and hasn't always been very well with it, Arthritis Care Scotland provides a helpline amongst other things, a kids day out where the kids go to a theme park, take family, play have a wonderful meal afterwards in a gorgeous Hotel AND on top of that get a goody bag.

I felt that it was about time that I organised some fund raising to say a HUGE thanks to all the people who provide this support often on a voluntary basis.

Katie will be doing a sponsored walk to raise funds. please read the link and visit my facebook event

And here is the link if you are able to offer sponsorship. If you cant spare change, please spare prayers :) remember to tick the gift aid box.

22nd to 30th May 2010 is National Arthritis Care week.

Come along to Dean Castle in Kilmarnock on the 29th of May, bring your family and walk with us to raise funds for Arthritis Care Scotland.

Dean Castles Park Rangers will be taking 2 separate walks with a 3rd by a volunteer. walk for 5 minutes or 5 miles and see some gorgeous surroundings.

Walks to suit all ages and there will be a tea and coffee tent for those unable to walk.

Bring a picnic and your teddy bear, prizes for the best dressed bear and small prizes for taking part.

The Rangers will also be taking a group pond dipping to see what lives in the pond...

This walk is to help raise funds for the Charity who supports my daughter.

Katie is 13 1/2 with Juvenile Arthritis. There are sadly approximately 120 children living with the disease in Scotland, Arthritis isn't just for old folk :)

Hanglar Flower girl Side step card.

Isn't this just sooooooooooooo Spring like??

I adored the colours in this months kit from Craftyfeeling and sat with my promarkers and coloured in a Hanglar image, added stickles and stuck on a whole whack of blooms :D I even used some rather large ones on the back section of the steps :)

This card will be given to a Sunday school Child, I make cards for the kids birthdays so they all get a nice unique card just for them, not some pre printed yucky one :) Trust me, I had many a year of Sunday school cards growing up...

Wedding Tilda and Edwin

Awe, Tilda and Edwin got married and I attended :)

I made this card to go in my card box and boy is it a big 'un.... the card is a c5 I think.... and is a copy (yes i know, couldn't get my own ideas huh!) of a card I spotted in Magnolia Ink magazine.

The card is all bazzil, with a stamped image of Tilda and Edwin getting married, coloured with promarkers and the heart is from the Winter stamp club kit. ink used on the edges is so saffron from Stampin up and the adorable tea roses and pearls are from crafty feeling :)

Cooking Hanglar Girl

I made this little sweetie for a Sunday school kid. I have had great fun making cards for the kids The images are Hanglar from TriciaTaddy on eBay. Tricia supplies a large range of stamped images all are beautifully stamped and come well packaged. Go check out her images and you will be impressed with her collection of Hanglars and Magnolias The papers are just off cuts from my scraps box and I have no way of telling who they are from.

Images coloured using promarkers and a tiny dink of glossy accents on the cherry :) apologies for the poor photograph... It would appear my camera is playing up :(

Easter Tilda

Here is one of my favourite and most used Tilda stamps. When i look around I don't see many of this image used, I love her because she is Praying, asking for forgiveness or simply giving thanks.

I made this card from a 6"x12" sheet of grey Bazill, a 3d paper cross I bought 3 years ago in America that I forgot I had (whoops) and some hand cut magnolia stamped flowers (boy my hands hurt after cutting out such small flowers with blunt scissors. The Bible text is Psalm 23.

Thanks for popping by :)

Side Step Card

I made a card to be sent onto a friend. I kept seeing the side step card all over the web and try as I might I couldn't get it to work right... UNTIL I googled and found this wonderful idiots guide :)

So here I am... one happy idiot :)

The paper is October Afternoon from an old scrap kit. All blooms are from Craftyfeeling as is the diamanté pin.

The Friend sentiments are 7 Gypsies and the ribbon is from my personal mountain of ribbons.

Bible text card

Today I made a card for a friend at church.

I used some old paper I had in my scrap box, I think its MME.... ok I am pretty positive that it is. Taken with Teal ink from Stampin up.

Ribbons & blooms from Craftyfeeling the April green kit. I loved this kit and used it everywhere I could. I even made some tags for my daughters school folder so she could find sections in text books.

The Bible text stamp i bought a while ago from the bay of E.

Hope you like it :)

Well it has been three months since I was online last. :( my laptop and computer both died. I adopted Cora the old lady cat, and have been rearranging my house with little success.

In the mean time I have been busy with crafting more card making than scrap booking to be honest, with 2 mini books for my DT work with Craftyfeeling one is a tiny little book with hand drawings of my plans for the garden and the other is a recipe book filled with Scottish recipes, YES I do realise that I have misspelled the word recipes LOL, it's all fixed now :) .

I was asked to make cards for Sunday school and handed over 15 of the little darlings... at the moment I am leaning more to 6x6 cards. so 15 cards down and 10 to go lol... thankfully all October - December birthdays.

All blooms and ribbons are from Craftyfeeling... more photos to come
