More Molly


Christmas Eve already, how did that happen?

Anyway I hope your all organised and not running around like headless chickens, I bet you are though so you will be too busy to look at my bloggy.

Just on the off chance though here is a card


ThisIs another one made using the Molly Bloom kit, I coloured with copics.

I don't think this one looks Christmassy though, so could be used for a birthday, what do you think?


Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

100 years in a queue...

Good morning, actually it's 11.15pm last night!

I thought I would do something constructive while in a phone queue,it's only been 1 hour 23 mins so far,yes really..

So before I start ranting about phone networks here's a card



Quite appropriate, I may be 100 before I get to speak to a customer service chappy..

I used a cool swirly balloon, miniature corner, and my beloved letterbox kit, all from Claritystamp.

Ink used was Shaded Lilac

Balloons are decoupaged, not sure if you will see it in picture.


I got to tell you this, the 'on hold' music is a repeating loop and it keeps playing 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger' are they trying to be funny!!! Lol

Have a good one!

Black and white snowflake

Good morning!

Hope you are all well, and not having too many problems with the rain...

Actually, is rain the least of our worries? Is today the last day?

I remember sitting in Mr Rogers English class in 1980 and debating the end of the world that was going to happen in 1984, my first thought was 'oh well it's ages away anyway' but when 84 came around I was very uneasy, especially because the nuclear threat from Russia was quite real at the time,it was a scary time so I hope I have managed to put Stevie and Amber's minds at ease a little so they don't feel the fear I did as a teenager.

Maybe we should start a 'nice' rumour and see if that spreads as quickly as the doom and gloom, in the meantime here is a card to take your mind off it...


This is one I made for my good friend and neighbour Julie and her family, she is Aunty Julie to the bunnies and fishies when I'm away.

I cut an aperture using a spellbinder, Venetian I think, backed it with black, added a white circle and punched snowflake. The stamps are from Claritystamp of course.

Hope you like it!

Special day in floral...

Good afternoon, yes not morning!

I was all revved ready for going out and finally braving the Christmas shopping madness, and then spotted the boy bunnies are still playing out in the garden,so while I wait for them to go back into their house I thought I would blog.

You may have noticed the little error with the same card being posted in the last few days,blogger hid the original post so I thought it was gone and did another via the blogsy app,doh!

This is an 8x8 using the lovely big Clarity Corner and floral set, this was for tv but all my cards must have been toward the bottom of the piles coz none of them were shown on the Sunday, sob!


You know how I like my mono cards...


I stamped in Raison and coloured with a Promarker, then edged with cranberry.

The sentiment is also a Claritystamp.

Hope you like it!

Right I'm gonna be a wicked ole mum and lock Sam and Jakey up safe so I can go out and spend some money.

What does it say again?..


Cold again isn't it..I wish I had done all my Christmas shopping early now,I could have just hibernated for December.


I think I may have brain freeze because I can't remember what the text means...maybe happy birthday?

Anyway, it's a Clarity text set, I also used my Floribundas stamp and a little swirl from the numbers set.

Not my usual colours but I quite like them, I used Weathered Wood and mustard seed distress inks.


Thanks for stopping by!
