Good Morning Bloggers, What funny old weather we are having, rains like cats and dogs one minute then lovely sunshine, is this our summer gone. Well today is nosey day, where we get to see WOYWW. Well I was quite pleased with myself last week got to everyone I think it was 150., I did 75 on Wednesday and finished the rest on Thursday Friday and Saturday morning. As in my previous post I have not made any cards but I was attempting to colour in some elephants, my sister has a thing about elephants.
The one on the left was a sample I did with Jane Coleman last year. As you can see still not quite getting there. Next to the elephants, is a little notebook I made with Tim Holtz paper from his pack I just love this pack and it sure goes a long way. The little flower again is one of the ones my granddaughter made a couple of weeks ago for me, I coated it with some mica and gun arabic to make it nice and shiny. Well not a lot from me today.
Well I best end here. Now you will have to go to our Queen Julia who started this all off

Good Morning everyone, what a horrid night, poured and poured of rain. Hope everyones gutters are ok. - Good for the gardens. Well, had my sister Babs come to stay for the weekend and a little surprise my Grand-daughter came on Saturday. Babs like myself loves card making and this was the first opportunity for her to make cards with me since Christmas. I didn't get to make any but Babs did as I was showing her different techniques as it is very hard for her to get to classes.. My Grand-daughter Francesca also likes to make card, she made two but I forgot to take pictures of them. Here's Francesca
Isn't she just gorgeous, Francesca will be 13 in November. Now here is the two cards out of the 3 my sister made - Again I forgot to take a photo of the 3rd one as I was getting tired ....lol.
Here we used Tim Holtz die and I was showing her how to distress backgrounds.The cuttlebug folder and nesties were used.

I have been looking after my two daughters dogs this week, the little one is a Pomeranian who is a little jealous of the big one who is a Rottweilla who is a bit soft and believe me I don't like big dogs but she has changed my mind what a lovely dog. They have taken most of my time up this week.
The Rottweilla is Zena and the
Pomeranian is Naughty Boo.
Thought you might like to see them, Boo had gone home but is back today and Darling Zena goes on Friday, must say she is moulting so much have to hoover and wash floors twice a day. Well thats enough for me so will end here and don't forget to pop over to the wonderful Julia's blog to see what's going on with the rest of the WOYWW Bloggers. Hope your day is Joyful lots of Love Jo.xxx

Morning Everyone, well the heavens are open again, good for the plants. Well a few pictures of my desk today as I am doing a few cards, but thought I would stamp some images and colour them in with distress inks, and copic so here they are
|These are Stamping bella stamps which you can get from the Craftbarn.|
|This is the distress inks ready to use with their applicators and that Penny Black cat has sneaked in.|
|These are polymer clay made from moulds which my Granddaughter made for me when she was here last week making a batch of words to make plaques for her friends. I am going to colour them in, then put mica and other|
colourings on them so watch this space ha ha.
If you are still with me I have one more picture to show. I have to thank two bloggers last week as they put me in touch with two companies that do the large ATG Guns.Their names are Kaz and Jo These two ladies are very talented. On Kaz's blogg she has lovely units for your distress pads. On Jo's blogg she done a wonderful concertina file. Thank you ladies.
