What's the Old Gal Been Up To

What have I been up to.....nothing too exciting I'm afraid ... the same old decorating......I am getting a little bit cheesed off with it all now.....new radiators were fitted on Sunday and I spent almost the whole day yesterday sanding down the hall...how I hate that job....dust everywhere and my hair...no chance of anyone running their fingers through it.....the ceiling needs doing and all the paintwork ...and then I can start on the walls in the family room and the hall....oh how I hate cutting in around all the doors....it takes for ever.....boy...oh boy....will it ever be finished.
The good news is that I did manage to escape for a little while yesterday afternoon.....out to my cubby hole my little haven of peace and quiet......need something to keep me sane in this mad decorating frenzy...... and you know gals Valentine's Day isn't far away so I had a little play with some yummy stuff from Craftwork Cards.  Have you seen their new range of clear stamps.....oooh...they are gorgeous...watch this space.

Papers ....Yummy Scrummy
Card Candy....Chocolate and Marshmallow
Flowers...... Dotty Daisies
Image: Imaginesce...Snag Em Stamp
           Penny Black "Hugs" Collection
Doodlebug Rub-ons
Basic Grey..... White Choc Chip Stickers
Charm from my stash
And just when you think you have some spare time to catch up with all your bloggy buds.....Mr Blogger starts acting up....don't know if it is just ME he doesn't like...or he was playing silly beggars with everyone...but BOY was he on a GO SLOW last night..so if I didn't manage to pay you a visit blame MR.B.....I will catch up with you soon.
I am decorating by day and crafting by night......DT stuff to get done and can I let you into a little secret..
I am gonna whisper because you never know who is listening...but Anice at Funky Hand will be releasing a new download soon and it's FABULOUS...working on some samples at the mo...will share later.
Well enough blethering from me...better get a spurt on and get some more of this decorating done because......I have a feeling that.....you know who....my idol...the King Himself ....the Prince of Papercrafting ....the one and only Tim Holtz is on QVC this afternoon with DB  ...a little bit of info stored away in the old brain...hope my memory ain't playing tricks on me .....a great excuse to sit down and relax with a cuppa.......and I am a little bit miffed....why have we missed out on the snow.....big hoohah on the weather forecast last night.....the North East of Scotland is bracing itself for severe snow overnight .....well woke up this morning to NOTHING....NIL....NADA....very windy and raining......catch up with you all later.....Hugs Kath xxxxxx

    I have a couple of birdie stamps and haven't used them yet - will have to get them out soon!


  14. These are all fab and such pretty colours xxxx I've 'been' to Craftwork Cards today and had a wee spend (slap slap lol xxxx). Bet you'll be glad to finish your decorating - I'm about to start ours but I keep putting it off. Nothing major, just a lick of paint to spruce everywhere up, but I can't quite find the motivation!!! And no it isnt just you, cos Mr Blogger was horrendous last night. I came in from card club, posted my new sketch to the PTW girls and thought I'd settle down for a blog hop. Nope, I gave up cos it was like watching paint dry!!!! Huggies to ya xxxxx

  15. I love all of these Kath, such pretty colours!! you have been busy!!
