Day 119

Today's prompt.. Handmade

I love this pop-up card I made using some gorgeous stamps 
by Janet Klein & Roc Nicolas available from Stampotique Originals

I was so happy I submitted it to Craft Stamper (UK) magazine

and got a lovely reply saying they wanted it for their May issue!

My first time in print!

Thanks for calling, Gez.xx

Today's prompt.. Art

It's been a week or two since I had time to play :o(

life keeps getting in the way..

Here is my photo for today!

Many of my dear cyber friends know I like to doodle and make cards,
get painty and get messy!..

so I thought I would share something different with you today..

..this is what I used to do in a past life!

sorry about the flash.. 

here's a close up!

I love this picture.. it hangs above my bed..

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend.. I look forward to catching up again with everyone's lovely pics.

sorry.. I'm cheating this morning!

Believe me when I say.. it's a white out in the sky this morning.. you DO NOT want to be here!! it's that right fine wetting rain and it's horrible!

I've been up to the cemetry to sort out the flowers this morning and I feel like I've been through a car wash!!!!

sooooooooooooo.... here is a photograph from last weekend that my daughter took.. she loves photographing clouds.. she's studying weather as part of her A level Geography and gives me a weekly forecast!!

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend whatever the weather. Gez.xx

edited to say.. I've just stood at the kitchen door and took this shot!

hadn't realised I was still on yesterday's settings oh well I suppose the scratches add something to today's cloudlessness sky!

not today!!!!!!

Is it just me? why, does nothing ever seem straight forward!!!!
me and technology... no!!!!!!!!!

I've just looked into loading Google+ onto my Android and now it's claiming 

the name I have enetered appears to be inconsistent and my account might be suspended!

I don't need this Google!!!!!!

Do I stay with Blogger or change to Flickr??

My darling furr angel Smudgey girl.. she's 6 months old and full of mischief!

 sock thief!!!!!!!

Smudge is our 6 month old kitty and she loves nothing more than running around with socks, 
perhaps, we should have called her Socks!!!

other naughty habbits include, scratching, then tearing wallpaper,
sitting on the computer keyboard or the laptop keyboard
getting stuck in the net curtains because a bird flew by outside
jumping up onto the dinning table while we are eating
climbing up onto my crafty welsh dresser and knocking things onto the floor to chase
chasing my ball of wool while I crochet..

do I need to go on!!!!!

(we do all love her very, very much!)

Thanks for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance. Gez.
