I'm back

No blogging yesterday and hey you don't half miss everybody - life here has been manic finishing off Father's Day Card orders but all done and dusted now. I hope you didn't think I'd been sunning myself or anything 'cos I tell you it has been absolutely brass monkey weather yesterday and today...where has summer gone or is it autumn already....oh no!!!! Who knows the way the weather's been lately.I did find time to play with one of my new Hero Arts purchases - I love collage stamps and already can think how different this would look with all different papers. This was just a quickie to cheer myself up after all that guy stuff and all this from one sheet of that fantastic paper from colouring just used different parts of the paper for the colour variation and a little bit of Heidi Swapp ribbon. I wish I knew the manufacturer of this paper - I think it did say on the outer wrapper but silly me threw it here's a question for all you guys that bought it.....because I'm fed up saying that paper from Costco. Here's the deal the first one to leave a comment with the name will get a little goody bag from me.
Had a little bit of therapy this afternoon watching the American Design Craft programmes on QVC - the only ones I watch apart from scrapbooking hours. Rosemary Merry was on with American Crafts stuff (one of my favourites) and I got some Thickers....metallic this time...they are fab and can't wait for them to arrive. Well enough rambling for one day off to do some Funky Hand stuff and then I get to play ..didn't manage many challenges this week and I am suffering this weekend is me challenge heaven time.....remember the Penny Black Challenge starts on Saturday...should be a goodie - can't wait to see all your entries.
Enjoy your weekend!!


  1. This looks great Kath :) Pay a visit to the Hero Arts website for some more ideas for these stamps! They had some samples on there when i was deciding whether to buy them or not! although your cards are always fab anyway :)

  2. A beautiful card. Love the text background and the flowers.

  3. Love it love it love it Kath! The text and flower stamp is so nice. I couldn't decide whether the text was seperate from the flower or not - till I looked at your goodie post, which answered my question.

  4. Hiya Mrs, liking the new design ... very sassy!!
    Anyway been looking at your pic of your bargain and I think it says Memory Clues or something like that on the wrapping. Enlarge the photo that you have on your blog, maybe you could read it better. Kelsey say's that you for voting for her card and leaving the lovely comment on the Fiskarettes blog, hopefully she will win as she keeps taking my stuff now and when I'm looking for something, it's normally in her bedroom. Anyway, got to go to bed now, it's been a long day. See ya soon Mrs, Karen

  5. Great Cards, by the way the make of the paper is by Memory Stor, went to Costco today and wrote it down, must admit I,ve never heard of them, i bought these papers as well and threw away the wrapping i just cut out the card with pictures of the papers, any way well done.

    I have only used about 3 half pages too. this pack is going to go on and on.

    Love Carol xx

  6. Gorgeous card, Kath, as always!

    I wish:

    a) I had a Costco near me!
    b) That I was a member
    c) That I had the pennies to buy a pack with!!

    Never mind. Things could always be worse. I might not have any Funky Hand CDs to play with!! lol ;o)

  7. I second what Heather said hehehe



Thanks for taking the time to visit me in the cubbyhole...I love to hear from you.
hugs Kath xxx
