Well Hello Again - I am not around for ages and then hey presto I'm back!

So glad you stopped by.  This is another card from the Blue Note Card Kit by Studio Calico.  It's a 6x6 card and I just love the colour of this patterned paper and fun striped flower.  I added a large pearl on top and also matted the hello sticker on white cardstock to create a border for extra impact.    The colours aren't great in the photo - grey and dreary here today but it "pops" in real life!

Thanks for peeking.

Hello Friday!

 Well Hello Today!  Thank goodness it's Friday!

Sharing a card I made from my Studio Calico - Blue Note Card Kit.  I have only just opened this box and have Copper Mountain waiting patiently.  I am trying to get through one - well at least open them before moving on to the next kit!!!.

It is grey and dreary here today and I took the photo above with my phone - so apologies for the colour!  

The big hello die is by Simon Says Stamp and I was layering up white on white cardstock layers until I spotted this card by Laurie Willison which totally inspired me to put in a layer of the tomato red.  So I sandwiched a layer in between three layers top/three layers on the bottom of white.  

 I am entering this into the CASE Study Challenge #175 - the amazing inspiration by Donna Mikasa (below).  My card is inspired by the jaunty angle of Donna's "Hello" and the repetition of the triangles is mirrored by the words on the pp. 
and CASology - CONTRAST

Thanks so much for peeking - I hope you have a great weekend.

Where have I been?

Happy New Year to everyone - I know it's the 20th 21st of January - where have I been?
Very good question!.  I was checking out castles last weekend!  Hogwarts anyone?
(it's Adare Manor Hotel really!).

Some pieces of my life in recent weeks - pieces included Lego!.
 Sailors back on the water after a three week break - brr brr!
 Lots of time with this guy!
 Which included monitoring him around the tree!
Don't let this innocent face fool you!  The baubles were for chewing!
It's soup weather here in Ireland - our new favourite is Celeriac and the recipe is from River Cottage - check it out here.
 So I have been creating and taking photos but just haven't had a chance to put the photos on my blog/write blog posts.  I promise I will try to share over the coming days.

Hope you are having a good week - thanks so much for stopping by.
