Pretty Flamingo
























Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Susan's turn to host and she would like to see 'In The Pink'

So when I read the theme, I read it wrong and had the wrong thing in my mind, I thought it was Pretty in Pink, then the song Pretty Flamingo jumped in my head, and that was it, I'm still singing the song now.  Manfred Mann released that song in 1966 which is 3 years before I was even born but I grew up listening to all sorts of music as my Dad plays music of all types all the time, and sixties music I listen to a lot. 

Anyway this lead to this card, as I knew I had a flamingo die and some flamingo papers.


Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.

Here are the prizes on offer:-

We have prizes from Penny Black, Woodware stamp, Sizzix. Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your animal stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Book Recommendation Welcome
Image result for kindle paper white













So my Husband John and my Daughter Jodie put together and bought me a Kindle Paperwhite for my Birthday. I haven't read in bed for a couple of years now as it keeps John awake, I so missed reading in bed especially 2 & 3 o'clock in the morning when I can't sleep.  I am looking for recommendations for a good read. I read historical romance, fantasy and general fiction.  My favourite Authors are Josephine Cox, Lena Kennedy, Dilly Court. Philippa Gregory and William Horwood.  I have every book that Josephine Cox and Lena Kennedy have written and currently collecting Dilly Court and Philippa Gregory.  I am a bit OCD with my books, I keep them and can't get rid of any, I can't let anyone else read them, and I can only read new books, not ones from the library or a charity shop I'm afraid.  I have to collect every book written by the Author, and read them in order of the date they are written, this is where the website Fantastic Fiction comes in handy, I use it all the time.  If I like the book I can read them more than once too.
So I'm looking at the following Authors Rita Bradshaw, Katie Flynn, Rosie Goodwin and Lyn Andrews, I haven't read any of there's yet.  So if any one has an opinion on these Authors it would be welcome.
I do read other books, I read a lot of Auschwitz survivor books too.
I'd love some feedback on this and thank you in advance.

Good Morning bloggers, and A Happy Mother's Day for all you lovely ladies for tomorrow. As it's Saturday morning It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.

I chose to go with my all time Author Beatrix Potter, I consider her a Pioneer of Women, I love how she did so much to preserve the countryside, battled to get her books published in the way she wanted, and stood up for herself in time that was ruled by men.
So I have done Hunca Munca from the book The Tale Of Two Bad Mice, I also thought it was an appropriate image for a Mother's Day card.  I kept it simple and the patterened paper and border at the top was made using a free embossing folder I have.

Simple Elegance
























Good Morning I hope your all surviving this cold and snowy weather, the one good thing about it is that while we are forced to stay indoors, we get more crafty time. So it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Mervi's turn to host and she would like to see 'Ladies Only'

As I had a bit more time on my hands I had a play, I'm not one for messing with inks, but thought I did some a bit back and enjoyed it, I'd do it again.  So I started by stamping the perfume bottle on a piece of white card, then embossed using clear embossing powder.  I chose two colours of Distressed Inks then applied over the card.  I stamped and embossed on a separate piece of card the perfume bottle, coloured it then fussy cut it. After stamping the image and sentiment I used liquid pearls to fill in the white space.  This is for my Mum, I tried to keep it elegant but simple to show the background I had made.


Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.
