The Sunday Stamper Challenge~Week 89~Hearts...

I have altered this lil Heart trinket box & was wondering what to do with it & then popped over to Hels blog & her challenge on The Sunday Stampers is to use hearts this week!!!
I painted the box with Anita's Antique White acrylic paint,then distressed it with a gold ink pad,the paper is BG Origins,the heart with the bird in is the free stamp on this month's Craft Stamper mag,stamped with Brown Versacolour & embossed in clear powder.the paper lace round the edge was swiped with brown ink to match.
Tiny but cute!!! TFL :o)xxx

Cute Stamps!!!...

How cute is this stamp?!!!Awwww!!!
I have seen the Mabel Lucie Attwell stamps on blogs & in magazines & they kept shouting me,so I invested,LOL!!!They are from The Artistic Stamper.
I have almost copied the card that Hels Sheridan made in the January copy of Craft Stamper magazine.Fabulous,striking colour combo,luv it.
I bet Hels thinks I'm a stalker,after copying her grungepaper flowers yesterday & now her card!!!
I just really like her style & ideas,I'm harmless!!!

I just have to mention,I can't get a lot of blogs to open on Paul's laptop that I'm still using.When I open them,it freezes & then shuts everything down?! Not sure what that is,maybe not big enough memory or something.
I'm not being ignorant!!!
Thanx for looking :o)xxx

Cute Card Thursday #94~All New!...

This card is for this weeks CCT challenge~All New!
You need to either use something "new" or create the card for a "new" occasion.
I chose a baby card & used some Anna Griffin kits I got years ago from QVC.I had just started crafting & luved the papers & stamps she was using on TV so ordered them & then sat looking at them dumb when they arrived!!! I didn't have a clue how to even stamp & just put them away, so when we moved & discovered them again,it was fab,they are like "new",& also fit this challenge!!! I just added pearls,pin & lace,rest are from the kits (x3).
I just had to do a rescue job on the clear alphabet stamps that are in the kits,I had hacked them to within an inch of their lives! I really didn't have a clue,LOL!!!
I'm working 12-4 today,so best go get ready.
Thanx for looking :o)xxx

I'm ringing work first in the morning,in case I get there & nobody else does!

This afternoon I have also found out that my Nanna,who is in Florida for 5 weeks,has been in hospital for a week with Pneumonia,a heart problem,blood problem & is very poorly!
I have been soooo upset,but my Mum has rung her & spoken to my Nanna & it sounds like she is a little better.I just want her to come home now & hug her,bless her,she is due to fly next week (11th).
Come on Nanna,you can do it!
