What The Heck...

HI folks...I survived the mega magazine removal job yesterday... JUST...crikey my poor old back is wondering what hit it...they are all now safely tucked away in the garage until I decide their fate apart from the 5 or 6 that came to bed with me last night and after finding some cracking projects which kick started some ideas for future looks like I'll have to check out 10 years worth of copies...well you never know how many crafty jewel ideas might be hidden in there.  Here we go again...the hoarder in me is now at loggerheads with my super organised obsession for decluttering the cubbyhole...what stays and what goes is now the dilemma...I did tell you I was a lost cause didn't I. No time for declutter decisions today I should be getting my skates on with the prepping for the Altered Art Night at The Papeterie...only a week away...
but the die cutting production line isn't exactly floating my boat this morning...I'm feeling a little bit stir crazy with the never ending rain and you know me...I'm the proverbial "chasing my tail" "skidding in by the seat of my pants" kind of crafter...why change the habits of a lifetime when you have the opportunity to skive off on a jolly...a "dance in the rain" and splash in the puddles" kind of a day. I'm meeting up with the Huntly Hooligans aka Carol...Aud...Maureen...Helen and Lily for a bite of lunch and a good old natter...what the heck...tomorrow's another day...if only all decisions were as easy to make.
and a couple of "crikey I wish it would stop raining" cards...

 I wonder if you can guess what I used for the raindrops...

The bad news is it looks as though it's going to be wet right through the weekend so to save your sanity...why don't you pop out to The Papeterie on Saturday for a crafty cure-all...the good news is...2 of my crafting buddies will be there to thrill you with exciting free demos...
DEBBI...The Queen of Promarkers will be demonstrating the best ways to use your Promarkers and Flexmarkers (10.00am-1.00pm)
ERIKA will be showcasing the latest products from Personal Impressions including making your own tissue tape...distress techniques as well as using Spellbinder Dies and Embossing Folders (10.00am-4.00pm)

and then you can join DEBBI for a Flexmarkers Masterclass (1.30pm-3.30pm)...a hands on class which will give you the chance to try out Letraset's fabulous Flexmarkers...there are still a few places available so contact Charlotte on 01224 802337 to reserve your place
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx


  1. Adorable cards Kath! Oh, if only I could "nip over" to the Papaterie - it is a bit far for me :) Would sure love to take some classes though!

  2. Fabulous cards Kath.. what you have done with the card candy
    (I think its card candy) for raindrops is just great... I wish I lived nearer as all these classes sound to good to miss... Hugs May x x

  3. ...I have to say the Tattered Florals Die is one of my favourites...loVe your cards especially umberella man lot's of flick technique (another fave)...have a fabby day...Mel :)

  4. Your cards are fab Kath and hope you have a lovely lunch with your buds! x

  5. Your cards are fab Kath and hope you have a lovely lunch with your buds! x

  6. I am so impressed that you put the mag in the garage, my Son who is 43 still has ALL his old comics - his wife is not too impressed but puts up with it! Your cards are fabulous and would brighten any rainy day (floods expected here). The sentiment is so true, so hope you enjoy dancing in the rain with your pals today. Make you own tissue tape - like the sound of that too. Hope you have a lovely day Kath. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  7. Now I thought that might be icing sugar raindrops but on second thoughts I'll settle for doctored card candi?
    Have a super day with lunch out & nattering. Think you dance pretty well.

  8. WOW - super work here Kath. I LOVE the Tattered Floral xxx

  9. Morning Kath - you will come back from your jaunt with added vigour and finish your production line on a happier note I'm sure. Sounds like it's all happening up there (craftywise)... wish I lived nearer. Enjoy your day.

  10. Gorgeous cards Kath, love the rain drops! Waiting to see if they are candy and how you made them that shape hugs Karen x

  11. These cards certainly fit our weather just now. I don't think the dance bit fits those of us who have beg energetic dogs though lol. Sometimes difficult enough to walk if they're being daft!!

    Hope you had a lovely lunch with the Huntly quines.

  12. Love your cards Kath. The raindrops and umbrellas look great.

  13. I guess you used candi for the raindrops? But, what stamp is the umbrella? Love it!


  14. Hope you had a great day out with your chums Kath. Love both of the cards, perfect for this weather. Did you use the rubber bands on your acrilic block to stamp on Mr umbrella man card? I think it must be your lovely card candy for the raindrops , very nice.What's the name for Tim Holtz big die of the alphabet that you use? Ican't seem to find it anywhere online.
