Gold heart card

Hi Ladies and Jellyspoons, ( my OH's name for idea either!).....see here and now
 we all understand where it came from....and relax.
I have another  'LIM' challenge card to share
 with you all again. I was in a card making frenzy
 yesterday so there will be lots more next week
 I think.
See sketch below my card for this weeks theme
 over at 'LIM' towers. I managed to use some gold
on my card. I have been dying to use gold lately
 for some reason. Also a bit of texture on the card
this time too ;)
Have a lovely Sunday playmates, whatever you
 have planned. Now come and have a closer
 look at my card.....

With Love card

Hi friends, as it's Saturday yet again I have another
'Less is More' card to share with you today.
It's a sketch this time, (see pic below my card).
I was in a blue/green mood today so this is what
I came up with.
 Of course it wouldn't be complete without a  
touch of pink  lol ,so I added a bit of that too.
Just realised the sentiment should have been
 at the side .....darn. I did put it there at first
then thought it had to be at the bottom.

I received lots of new crafty 'stuff ' today in
the post so I am trying to get inspiration from
it all. 
Great service again  from Clearly Besotted I 
must say. I ordered it yesterday and it all
 arrived today ;) 
My Make the Day Special things arrived in
two days also so well  done to them too ;)
We are grandchildren  free this weekend so
 I am going to be making cards mostly. In
 between finishing yet another  jumper for the 
grandbabies with matching scarf and hat ;)
Anyway come and have a closer look at my 
card. I hope you are all well and have a 
lovely weekend  too. 
Love, LIM, CAS

Friends cards

Hi friends, I am back with another quick post.
Still sorting my new computer, (see previous post
 if you have a spare 3 hours, and want a laugh!).
I still feel like  a dinosaur trying to learn about
 Windows 8 and  find/move/sort/install/delete/
reorder all my stuff. Getting there bit by bit
 though at last.
I am able to post pics of my cards at last now
I have installed my new PSP programme.
Although where all my old brushes/masks/
etc. have gone to is still a mystery to me lol. 
Anyway here are two cards I made
 recently. I thought the second one was maybe
 a tad bare? hmm should I add a sun and trees/hills/
valleys etc.I decided this was 
 enough for my feeble mind to cope with atm.
a case of less is more so left it  quite CAS.
  I made this quick digi card at first as I was
in sheer panic mode with the new 'puter
taking up so much of my time.
I made this second one when I needed a
 quick break from sorting stuff. Also I
had so much going around in my brain I
thought my head might just explode lol.

This first card/image made me smile. I thought it
 could mean  'friends' who look/dress alike ;)
Be kind about my second card please as colouring
isn't my strong point to say the least lol. I did
 have a try though ;)
Come and have a closer look.............

Bloom digi page.

Hi playmates! just popping in to say I have my new
'puter now. No cards to show you atm. as I just
realised I need my editing programme to finish my
 cards before I can post them.
I have quite  an old version of PSP so have treated 
myself to the latest version.Just waiting for it
 to arrive now. I also need a larger EHD it seems too.
Such a rush, my head is still spinning!! ........I also
 need a new oven and pocket camera too lol.
My OH and my son decided I needed a new
  For some reason my OH thought I would
 take some persuading.I ordered one next day 
(no I don't hang about do I lol).  
It arrived  the very next day (amazing service eh!),
 it's a DEL btw. As we were looking after our 
grandson overnight, ( first went very well,
 I want to keep him  now lol).
 Our son and DIL arrived to collect
 him next day. As he is my main computer expert,
he decided to install my new 'puter there and then.
Much panic ensued by me of course. Things 
were happening so quickly !!! He has set up
my new 'puter and new keyboard side by side
 with my old one and old keyboard.
So after moving some vital stuff, he has left me to
sort the rest.......GULP!!!You would laugh if you
 could see me now. I have two keyboards and two
 mice here as I type lol.
 I had to reinstall printer  drivers when the printer
 was playing up. I am still getting to grips with 
Windows 8. I am very confused about everything
 I do atm. I also feel about 106 ! 
It made me laugh when my son tried to explain
stuff to me. I know I looked just like my elderly
 neighbour when I try and explain things to her.
She gets a kind of glazed over expression.......
I had that too dear friends! Anyway I am just
 about coping, I was here at 4.30 am. as I couldn't 
sleep last night lol.
As I couldn't show you my LIM card/s (I will 
when I can edit them). I am showing you a digi
 page  I made instead. I did manage to reinstall
my CAP programme.
 Not without difficulty though ! I had no kits there
 etc, and much panic ensued. I found the place
to enter a new location for CAP to find my old
 stuff though.
 Phew! Sure I have aged overnight!
Sorry for all the waffling AGAIN !!! normal service
 will be resumed very soon....... I am hoping. 
Also sorry I was late leaving comments last week too.
What with 3 lots of babysitting and a new 'puter,
life took over!
Anyway here is a quick digi page I made to
 calm myself down lol. On a more positive note, I
now have almost nothing on my desktop:)
Before it was getting almost full....I know I know!!!
If you are still with me,come and have a closer look,
 it's my grandson  Charlie. I took this photo at Xmas and
 loved it in B&W, hope you like it too ;)

New Home card

Hi everyone, another grey drizzly day here today grrrr.
A good excuse for escaping to my craft room  and
 making a card though !
I recently bought this lovely embossing folder and
 have been dying to try it out, so here goes.
A bit of distress inking, some stamping, die cutting 
 a few sequins/twine and job done.
I am entering this into the 'Virginia's View Challenge'
which this time is 'Clean Slate'. I used a lot of white
 space (one of the options) and 'new home' means
 that to me also so I hope it's ok.
Silly me thought I could also enter it into the 'LIM'
challenge this week. Then I realised it wasn't one layer
.............. doh! 
I just realised that Virginia comes from Taiwan, so 
does my beautiful DIL ;)
ps. Hmm my computer is running so slowly these days.
It seems my OH has had secret talks with our computer
 expert  son and they have decided I need a new one.
He also told him to get the best as I use it so much
 ( my son will choose I haven't a clue!). 
Wasn't that nice of my OH though awww ;)
Oh my! I am hoping it will be easy to move all my
 stuff  from  my computer/EHD to a new computer. I
 know it wasn't easy last time I had to change 'puters! 
.............Panic mode now initiated..........
Computers seem to be out of date after 5 years now 
according to our son.........not good is it !!!!!
End of waffling, come and have a closer look
 at my card ;)

New baby card

Hi friends, just popping in to show you my 
latest 'Less is More' card. I managed to
get it made in between babysitting sessions.
It's 'One layer' card week again and the theme
 is ........
'New Beginnings'

Been so busy as we had to babysit twice last
week and then we had the other grandbabies 
over today too.
 We are having one of our grandsons to stay
over for the first time next week by
himself as it's his parents Anniversary. 
I predict lots of cuddling then, he loves me
 reading books to him also.......and pretend
 'shopping'.........mostly  for Advocado's lol.  I
 am the shop keeper and  he pays me with
 lego bricks lol. 
Right sorry waffling too much as usual, here is

Pretty flower card

Hi friends, just popping by today to show you
another card. Busy babysitting the next few
 days and cooking/baking food to take with us.
I do like to give my DIL's a break so they
 don't have to do any cooking in the evenings.
Means I have to be super quick making a card 
though. Here's what I came up with in between
doing various 'jobs' lol.
Back to my usual pink too you will notice ;)
I just adored this lovely flower stamp when I saw it
whilst blog hopping. Sorry if you want it now too ;)
ps. Oops forgot to say it was my Fastiversary two days ago.
Been on the 5.2 diet for exactly a year and lost 18lbs.
Not a huge amount I know, but good for me he he.
I also got into a tight fitting size 12 dress the other week.
Happy days, sticking with it now !
