O' Christmas Tree


Morning Peeps, time for our new Allsorts challenge, this was the theme Susan chose before taking her break so we decided to go with it at it fits nicely with the season as it is 'Christmas Trees'. Our lucky winner will receive a set of Distress Crayons.

Christmas Flowers


Time for our new challenge at Allsorts where Mervi is our host with the theme of 'Winter Flowers'. Our sponsor is Marianne Designs.

A message, written by Eddy on behalf of Brenda. As I know little about blogs (so it's a one off) Tracy despite her own problems, has stepped back and kindly been assisting me updating challenge teams and Brenda wanted me to transfer some of that to her personal blog so you understand her absence.

Although she's not had a stroke, she's suffering similar symptoms, lacking coordination, poor speech and writing functionality, unable to drive, sleeping and eating little. She's on new drugs which need careful monitoring alongside those for pre-existing conditions, by nature strong willed and impetuous (a nod and wry grin from her) she was not happy when told patience is required as it could take three months to see the benefits.

But positive as ever she tells me she wants to continue with her challenges and her teams are all very supportive and happy to cover things until her return for which I know she is grateful.

She has a habit of crafting for England when preparing for TV and Retail shows so has sufficient work prepared and posts scheduled well into 2019. It's mainly photos of her artwork and as she is not able to add content currently please accept this as an explanation for short posts in the interim.

I am permitted to add that she had used Penny Black stamps on the above work !!

Poinsettias and sparkles


It's time for our  new challenges at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More where our themes are 'Winter Sparkle' and 'Traditional Christmas Colours'. As always there are wonderful prizes to be won at both. 

I'm rather poorly and unable to string together a meaningful sentence without help so a big thank you to Tracy for being such a good friend keeping in touch with hubby and stepping back into craft land sorting things for me despite the difficult times she and her family are going thorough.

Fantasy land


Morning Peeps, time for our new Allsorts challenge and the theme I chose is 'Fairies, Fantasy and Magical' with some Fairy stamps as a prize.

I'm rather poorly and unable to string together a meaningful sentence without help so a big thank you to Tracy for being such a good friend keeping in touch with hubby and stepping back into craft land sorting things for me despite the difficult times she and her family are going thorough.
