Must See

Hello Everyone

Sorry im not blogging lately but my bunny is really ill, so im nursing him lots.  It is not usual for bunnies to overcome their absesses, and eventually it will end his little life prematurely after a long time of sickness.  But, I found a procedure online that hopefully will help him actually eradicate the Absess so that it won't come back (almost unheard of).  Anyway, my little mite is really poorly at present and the vet is tracking down thespecialist medication he needs so he can carry out the procedure.  So, we are very anxious to get the treatment started.  Also, little Gladdie has gone completely geriatric and is now incontinent, Bless her little cotton socks.  So i have spent the rest of my time cleaning, cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning - uh !

This is Gladdie (aka Loollabell) looking her usual cutiepie self, earlier this summer....

It's been a particularly horrendous week and obviously I couldn't carry on like this so we just got a nice big cage for her.  It's a shame because all my buns have always lived completely free and this will be the very first time one of them has been confined.  But i have made it all comfy for her and believe it or not she loves it.  Giving her a secure place of her very own seems to have settled her down.  And she is not stressed out by the new arrangement at all. (Big, big sigh of relief).  But obviously in the summer she can pee all over the garde if she wants !!!

Anyway, i wanted to share this small clip with you.  It is possibly one of the most funniest things iv'e ever seen. 
Well, it cheered me up anyway......

Oh, and this is Spike up a tree - thats before he went into 'Brumation' - otherwise known as a long sleep over winter for Lizards - that's if they've had a particularly adventurous summer.  We are missing him madly, but he looks set to sleep till the spring.  He ses "Wake me up when it's all over".

Thanks for stopping by

Poorly Bunny

Hi Peoples,

I have a very poorly bunny this week.  Monday we thought we were gonna be losing him but thankfully after a serious operation the vet was very pleased with him and the prognosis looks good.  It's still early days (and im afraid to get too excited) but we are very hopeful and as you can imagine, to say we are relieved would be a huge understatement.

This is Smudgie, he's the 'baby' of our bunny bunch, and a very poorly but brave bun.  This is an old pic of when he was a babe, but he hasn't changed much - except he's maybe even more fluffier !

I'd just like to thank Helen of Ellephantastic who sent me such a lovely birthday card with one of her very own hand drawn digi images on.  I was so happy to receive it.  It really warmed my heart to think that she thought of me.  She's such a sweetie pie and draws the cutest digi images - well worth a look.  I'm just off to get her Nativity image now !

Thanks for popping by

Messy Mists

Hi Ya

Here i have use Molly Blooms; Dandelion Clock Flower with lovely rich Cosmic Shimmer Mists.  I made a right old mess doing this one with my spray mist going every where.  I tried the Cosmic Shimmer with a brush too but you don't quite get the same effect.

Quite Plain

Hello Peeps

This is quite a plain card, and although i like the clean look of it, its a bit boring !

The stamp is Molly Blooms - Flowers for Sale which decoupages up lovely and looks great with a coating of clear glossy accents.

The frame is; Marianne Creatables circle frame LR0112 which is nice and big and would look great as an easel card which I have still yet to do !

Thanks for stopping bye.

Hello Peoples

I won't make you guess what it is. 

This is a pulling handle.
i made for our Loo !

Cool innit !

It worked soooo well that
i was even going to put
beads on it, although i'm not
quite sure how hygienic
that would have been.

The orginal button mechanism
kept on breaking, so i made
this handle.

We had it for more than a year
till my husband decided to
change the whole thing.

But the new one even broke !
I think we should have kept myn, i know it didn't look much, but it worked a treat.

Hi Peoples !

How you all doin?  Good I hope.  Here's a 'cuddly' card with some cute pets on from one of the new Kars/Ollyfant stamp sets.  We could all do with some cuddles, don't you think?

The woolly flowers i've had for yonks.  I bought a book on how to make knitted flowers but Mum hasn't finished kniting my 6th cardigan yet! So ill have to wait till i can talk her into some more cheep labour!!!

Well, it's a shame to waste all that raw talent she has.

Thanks for your visit. See you all soon.

Better Late than Never !


This was an extra big card for an anniversary card.  The couple went on a cruise and i was too late to do them a card before they went.  So I did an extra special one to welcome them back home again !  Just as well they were gone a few weeks, so i could finish it!

It was quite grand!  the lovely baking paper is Magnolia and the nic-nacs are Sizzix sizzlets.  And i've used a Martha Stewart punch. But, the ship is my very own creation !

Hope you like.
