Inspired by Paula...Day 2

Hi folks...what a gorgeous blue sky sunny morning even though it is a tad chilly...not sure what the weather man is up to...he definitely seems to have got his sums wrong predicting lots of rainy weather and getting it badly wrong but hey I'm not complaining although the cubbyhole does become a bit of a sauna when the sun shines which means I'll just have to escape outdoors for more coffee breaks...it's a hard life right enough.
But it's time to share more makes from my fun playtime with Paula's fabulous dies and as you can see I'm still playing with the fabulicious papers from Tim's French Industrial Paper Stash...if truth be told I was a bit traumatised having to cut into it...you know the feeling I'm sure...so I had to go order a spare to look at and stroke from time to time...what's that all about...one of those strange unexplainable crafty obsessions that us crafters seem to suffer from...
 and just in case the Remnant Rubs run out...I had to get more of them too...

and fearful that I was going a bit mad with my favourite papers of the moment...I diverted my attention to some Cosmo Cricket goodies that the Furry Boy had left lying around after one of his cubbyhole rummages...
 I love these cute doiley dies and the teeny weenyest one looks just like a button...

But I'm in dashing off mode this morning...the Furry Boy needs his morning stroll before I get stuck into painting the kitchen ceiling...white speckled hair here I come...see you all tomorrow.
Hugs Kath xxx

You amaze me Kath...painting the ceiling yourself! You are one strong lady.
I used to do all our DIY myself but as arthritis took over my joints, I gave up the painting and wallpapering! Now we have to hire it out as DH is not handy at all!!!

Two more great cards...love the strong colours and strong deisgn.

...these are yummy Kath and I know what you mean about the paper thing, they should come in a pack of two to save us from stress!...good luck with the ceiling, speckled hair and a stiff neck for you tomorrow ;) and maybe Buddy too!...Melxx :)

Fabulous creations Kath - it's been wet and horrid here for days. I have to admit I laughed when you said about cutting into Tim's papers and having to go stroke the other pad - I didn't think a craft goddess like yourself would have the same hang up lol! I still have one DCWV pad that I can't cut into Karen x

Fiona said...

wow these are gorgeous....especially the first one!!
