Just to prove I can still do arty.  Here’s the Charm to go with yesterday’s page.  I wonder now if I should have done an arty page to go with it?

80th Birthday card


  • Pattern Paper – English Paper Company
  • Green Cardstock – Prism
  • PM Buff, Cream and Brown cardstock
  • Stamps:  Fish and Basket (on the inside of the card) – Creative Expressions & Hand Stamped By (SU)
  • COPIC Markers
  • Chiaro Flo Clear Embossing Powder – SG-me! 
  • Palette Noir Ink
  • Versamark & Lime Green Fluid Chalk Ink
  • Green Stitched Ribbon – AMM
  • Scor-it Board
  • Cricut with Base Camp Cartridge
  • Loopy Bard – Karen Foster


Used the Base Camp cartridge to cut the 80 and the postal stamp rectange and shadow background.

Stamped out the fish, roughly coloured in with COPICs, covered with Versamark and then several layers of Chiaro Flo (I know that it’s our own product, but it really is the most amazingly clear EP!).


Well, well, well …………. Peep Show won best Situation Comedy at the BAFTA’s last night, it was worth sitting through the whole thing just to see that.  Such a shame the lovely David Mitchell didn’t win best Comedy Actor (he was robbed).  I’m not a fan of Gavin & Stacy and don’t see the appeal of the fat chap, James somethingorother, who did win.

To celebrate I ordered the Series 1 of Peep Show for Rob (ohhh, I admit it me too)  – who is now a massive convert to the series and a huge fan of the wonderful creation of Mark Corrigan.

Well, today’s been a complete bug up!

Dress up Maggie Index

I won’t bore you with the details, but Toodles diving was cancelled.  There’d been a mix up and her Instructor thought that she was 10 last week.

As she has to be 10, she couldn’t do the course, and we’ve had to re-book it for a fortnight hence.  Obviously, she’s upset, but we’ve just bought a new Shining Star Creature (which has made her a VIP), so she’s actually bearing up quite well.

As I had some spare time, I’ve just started re-assembling her bedroom after all the electric work, and have just found time now to sit down with a glass of the red stuff, and make another Sugar Nellie Index card.

COPIC Colours used: E00 (Skin White), R20 (Blush), YG03 (Yellow Green), RV17 (Deep Magenta), R02 (Flesh), E31 (Brick Beige), Y17 (Cadmium Yellow), C1 (Cool Gray 1) plus the usual Palette Noir ink.

The background stamp (not that you can see it too well) is a tiny mirror and case image from my See-D’s Vintage Image set. The edge of the Whispers White (SU) cardstock has just been edged with Fluid Chalk Ink Violet (17).

I’m now just about to top up my glass, and have a stalk round the blogs whilst listening to Suzi Q – ohhh my goodness, they just don’t write music like that any more.  I love rockn’roll.
