Where Did My Signature Go?

I don't know what happened to my new signature when I published my last post.....oh well here it is now.... will get the hang of this soon...I hope!!  lol 

Not Cards This Time But.....

I thought I'd post the photographs of my recent efforts at pottery painting done on the "Ladies Nights" run by a lovely couple David and Debbie at their art shop in Albox.  Its a great night...I really do enjoy going there.  The vase,  jug/vase and dish I painted with for want of a better discription "exploding paints" (cant remember the correct name for them) .....its a great medium to use and does exactly that explodes when its "fired".

I'm posting four photos of the vase mainly to show the different angles.  I'm not great at it.....I just use a bit of  "artistic license".  lol

Will try and get some more cards put on shortly.

I forgot to say in my post last night that the word-card was made following instructions by JaneyGrey and with the step-card I used sheets made by Nicole......both very talented ladies!!  As I said both were first attempts at those particular styles.....but I'll be making more of them thats for sure!

Hello I'm back !! lol

Spent a great few days in the UK.....enjoyed it very much.....but am just sorry I didn't get to see everyone or do everything I wanted to.....there's only so many hours in a day isn't there. lol   Saw my grandchildren which was the main and my sister and brother-in-law have come over with us until the 30th.....luckily they managed to get on the same flight back as us.

I brought my long awaited Craft Robo back with me....had it delivered to my son's address.....not had a chance to do anything with it just yet but I've got it and thats all that matters. I also got to visit the new Hobby Craft shop that has opened in the town and of course had "a bit of a spend" you do!! lol  

I'm posting two "firsts" -  the word book was for my eldest grandson and the step-card for my youngest grandson's birthday.


Will post more cards as and when!!  Enjoy the weekend.

First Post

This is really out of my comfort zone I'll admit but started this blog anyway and cant believe I've actually got it up and running.....well with the help of my new friend Sylvia R I the patience of a saint she has. lol  Dont know exactly what I'm going to add to it or how often but I'll have a little...or even a big think about it whilst we are over in the UK.  Not long now!!!

I may even dare show some of the cards and other projects I've  been doing.....what I'd do without my crafts doesn't bear thinking about. lol  As you'll see I'm new to this so please bear with me and I hope you will pop in to see what I've been up to from time to time.
