MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

A little birdie told me...

that I would be very happy if I made a birdie card...lol I love all of the birdie paper and stamps etc that are out now amongst all of the other new designs which my pennies don't always stretch to. I keep slapping myself on the wrist for not using up the HUGE amount of stash that I've had for ages BUT there's nothing quite like the feel of a brand new piece of paper or the sound of something new the postie is dropping on the mat!! I loved these Papermania papers as soon as I set eyes on them aren't these birdies cute :)
A nice summery card which makes me feel good today after braving 2hrs of gale force winds at a bootsale this morning. Must be mad but it was quite good fun trying to play catch with some of my items...to save them from diving off the table and hitting someone around the chops...lol

I'd have been worth a small fortune if I had, had a penny for everytime the guy next to me shouted "Gloves a pound" and "scarves for two quid"... got on my nerves after a while but hey he did a roaring trade cos everyone was so cold, so he definately wouldn't have cared that I felt like wrapping one of the scarves round his own neck and pulling on it tightly.... eeeeeeeeh how wicked am I rofl... I'm a nice girl really honest!!
Anyway the highlight of the morning was coming home and making myself a huge sausage, onion and tomato sauce sarnie... oooooooh it was totally yummy, almost succumbed to the hot dog van while I was out but just knew my own would taste so much nicer in a stottie bun... especially as I had to wait for it, would have taken a pic to show you but my tummy wouldn't allow me to wait that long. I will be complaining when my thighs start wobbling more than they already do BUT right at this moment I'm thinking it was worth it....lol
Will be back a little later with my sewing for Linda and Rosie's challenge cos I didn't quite manage to finish it yet... so don't forget to pop back for a look... I'm quite pleased with how it is coming along even though I had a happy accident with it.... but that's another story:0
Catch you later
hugs
Chris xx

Love your card Chris it is so cheerful. You collect paper things I collect fabric and doll things. anything vaguely that looks it would do for dolls I have to have it. Where our hobbies are concerned we are wicked lol! I could have done with that Sausage today sounds so delicious just the thing for a cold and blustry day like today.
