Inspired by Jo Firth Young

Well Hello!

How the devil are you?

Well it's taken a while but I finally got round to creating my masterboard as shown here on the PaperArsty Blog by the 'some might say' (Jeremy Clarkson style) 'Quirky' Jo Firth Young, don't you just love this lady??? Not in creepy voyeur kind of way. (Did I dig myself out that hole?!)

Anyway I'm waffling! Jo created a scrumptious masterboard and as a girl who just loves to create backgrounds I had to have a go, although it takes as while (as usual) but I ALWAYS get there in the end LOL.

Here's my offering, the top image is the scan of the original and the bottom the original photo.

Now if you've popped over to Jo's site you will see that I have plagiarized her ideas unashamedly until I get into the groove a little, (don't seem to be finding time for craftig at the ,moment which isn't doing my sanity any good at all!!) here are the cards I made with mine.

So that's me done, thanks for stopping by and leave a comment if you fancy.

See you next time

Bad Blogger!

Well hello! Long time no see! I know I'm a really bad blogger and it's been a while (well longer than a while but who's counting!). So what's been happening?

Amazballs stuff over in PaperArtsy Land check the blog HERE.

I couldn't possibly show everything I've been up to, not that it's been that much I really need a time machine or the Kris Kringle effect of slowing time down, just enough to catch up or have a little ME time!

This is one of the latest creations. Back in January it was Sue's birthday (my craftin bud), for her birthday I bought us both one of these frames from PaperArtsy (the real gift is the creative time together). So it took a while for us to get together.

Here's Sue's Blog with her finished item.

Here are a couple of close ups.

I went for my usual reds and greens from my fresco paint collection and used some of the gorgeous trinkets I received for Christmas.

Here's a couple pics of other things I have created.

This was a card for a friend who was off work after op!

This is a belated birthday wall hanging thingy for Sue's daughter.

So anyway I'm off to peg the washing out, at least it's dry enough to peg out, I must be getting old taking pleasure in such things!!

Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment if you fancy.
