Tuesday musings and art

I have had an arty crafty week, see  that below.  Also been doing lots of digital stuff for my other blog. 

At home i have been visiting mam more often as she is not doing so well, losing weight and last week hallucinating. The doctor is looking into it. Its hard to get to the bottom of things with someone that has dementia. All we can do is keep on loving her and doing our best to look after her.

Sam and i are going away this weekend to Crimdon Dene caravan park for a few days. We are also taking Sams sister and her partner and our little Jojo. We have not had a break or holiday for a long time so it will be a welcome break. 

Ok  here is the creative stuff ...

Atc's are stamped and altered images, I can't just stamp, i like to make them my own lol. Lots of paints, pens and inks used as well as scraps of papers and some vintage book text. I really enjoyed making them. 

 Below is a greeting  card i made too.

Its been an extremely warm week this week. I have sat in front of a room fan whenever the opportunity presented itself. Its also been a very productive and creative week. I have turned my hand back to an old favourite of mine 'ATC'S. I had forgotten how fun they are to make. Its been a messy, painty but extremely satisfactory time. Below are the results of this  (don't forget the sunglasses ! ) 

I have also been digitally  creative over at my other blog  Dezinaworld15  Where i have been creating and posting Free and Original images for everyone to use.

A brand new Autumn card finished today. I was in the mood for autumnal colours. The card is white and brown cardstock with 5 patterned coordinating papers cut into the shapes and glued down on cream card then mounted onto the brown.. Then i used another paper on the rectangle and mounted that onto the brown card. I stamped the images of leaves and greeting and frame, coloured all with markers and dabbed the leaves with distress inks in rusty hinge and green using corner of a baby wipe. I coloured the die cut butterfly the same way and assembled.

Have a happy Monday everyone.

Hello everyone. Well this week has been hectic, as will the rest of this month be. Two of my grandchildren had birthdays this week. Joshua who is 13 and Riley who is 2 years old today. Also coming up this week are my grandchildren Ethan (15) and Sammy (8) . We will be going away for a few days later in the month too. But as crafters usually do, I am busy crafting and creating both physically and digitally as i go from day to day. 
Over at my Dezinaworld Blog I have just posted my latest digital images that i created as free downloads. So do pop over if you want to snag a few/.

I made this card yesterday too. The stamps are Stampers anonymous and also a set of butterflies i have in a tin (wood mounted ) I don't know who they are by as they are old ones. The background is blue cardstock which i stamped the butterflies and distress dot background onto. I embossed the butterflies with black embossing powder and then painted the insides of them with neat bleach to lighten the cardstock so i could colour onto it. I used Spectrum  Noir pens and a white Sharpie paint pen. Added the stamped sentiment and that was it.

I would like to enter this one into the Brown Sugar Challenge Blog - Anything goes  

Have a fab weekend all.

Chunky Monkey Ice-cream

Hi all, well its been a funny kind of week for me. Full of good intentions but nothing much achieved. I am good with that. Life is like that sometimes and we just have to go with the flow.
We managed to get some painting done and finished the cabinets in the bedroom though.

Something strange did happen though. Yesterday,  I asked Sam to put a c d on for a little background music.  He asked what i wanted i said 'You choose'. He put on a country mix and the first song came on ' Rose garden by Lynn Anderson' Dad and I used to sing this together. The song that followed was also one of Dads fave songs. 'Ghost riders in the sky' ..... Weird you may think ? Well a few minutes later Sam was moving a unit in the hallway to clear behind it and .... this was found behind it. " Hello Dad, we miss and love you "

I am feeling creative but nothing much is being produced. My sister in law is here for the weekend so maybe after the weekend i may actually get something creative done. 

My mind is turning to losing some pounds (much needed ) and so i am going to start collecting a few nice recipes to keep the job of weight loss a little more pleasant and less boring. Here is one i found today. Chunky Monkey Ice cream ... Love that idea. Here is a link to the blog  page Chunky Monkey Ice-cream    I will definitely be trying this one. My plan is to plan out some foods and recipes. Buy and make them all, Freeze and then begin. .... We will see how that goes . My plans do not always go to plan lol. 

Hope everyone has a magical weekend
