A couple of cards

Happy Christmas folks, well belated at any rate.... Or is it early for next year perhaps?

I do hope you've all had a lovely Christmas - mine was different as I had an unexpected 'gift'..... pneumonia! How fantastic was that then? You're right it was not in the slightest bit fantastic at all! In fact it was sodding vile, I've never coughed so much in my life. I did prove though that I possess some muscles as I pulled some in my side coughing. That made coughing rather difficult - but I'm over the worst now.

So a few photos for you today - here's my gorgeous girl Harry. I love the expression on her face! Any ideas what she's thinking? Well seeing as she was eating I had a camera in her face I'm sure you can guess!


Now a few shots of the card I made for my OM. Yes I know its got a Tilda on but she's hugging! I even cut into a sheet of Magnolia paper! I almost had palpitations, fortunately the other piece had already been cut so that wasn't so traumatic. A bit of lace and a few flowers a la WOC and it was done. Copics for colouring natch ;))


The delightful arty shot!

A close up of the flowers, these were spritzed with some Glimmer mist..... I think you can almost make the glimmer out.....especially if you squint!


Now over at the lovely Julias its WOYWW. Now the 'work', if you could call it that, can't be shared as yet. So I put these babies on there! Now I can put my hand up and say 'I love shoes' especially little babies like these, I mean who wouldn't? And yes I can walk in them. Of course I was chuffed to bits when LK Bennett opened a shop in Meadowhall!


Oh I wubs them I does....

Now seeing as I've not shown you any actual work.... I got talked into showing you the area 'loosely termed' as punch storage.... Otherwise known as the 'space on the cupboard where I pile up some punches'. Notice the use of the word 'some' ;)) That's all I'm saying!





Pop over to Julias and check out the real desks, who know you might see some actual work!

oh my goodness you do have a lot of punches...and it's bad luck to put your shoes on the table, no matter how pretty they are!! Your little caique is just adorable...the colours are just amazing!!

Well of course Harry is letting us know "this is mine, go get your own." So many punches (and there are a few not shown), wow. Very precious card for your Mom. #75

Hazel said...

Lol! - I'm surprised to see you haven't got many punches. x

Marjo said...

Yeah, love those MS punches! Thanks for the peek and sharing. Happy creative crafting in the New Year.

Hugs, Marjo

I'm not sure which is more stunning, the red on the cards, those shoes, or all those lovely punches. You lucky gal, you! Happy New Year! S #48

Rhonda said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better. Coughing is no fun! Your card is absolutely lovely, and so is your sweet Harry! Happy New Year miss queen of the punches! WOYWW #4

I think you should be called Emelda Punch !! Great stuff !!

tracy said...

i think harry is thinking 'i love it when you stick that camera at me when i'm eating!' LOL
those shoes look a bit high for me-i couldn't even stand in them let alone walk!!

Traceyr said...

Now Net I have talked to you about the shoes so I will concentrate on the amount of punches you have. I feel that that amount is unnecessary for one person and would gladly store some of them for you in my house hahahaha!

Great card for your OM hope he appreciated it?

:)

Ciara said...

Wow, I thought I had a punch habit!!

Scrapcollectr said...

Sooo cute birdie, ca-ute card and lovely shoes! I thanked you for visiting me on your other blog but it may have been confusing because I noted my WOYWW number and it may be mistaken for the mr Linky number on that post. Yikes. Hee hee. Happy New Year!

Beautiful bird, she is so lovely I don't care what she was thinking cos I'm thinking "how lovely!". I'm overwhelmed at the sight of all those punches... there's a lotto win there!
I remember when I wore shoes like those every day even for work. I couldn't even hobble in them now!

Happy 2011

OMG Net, I knew shoes like that could hurt your feet but didn't know they could cause pneumonia. Let that be a lesson to us all! Harry is looking fab, and I think she is saying something like "Now zen Mr Bond, vat do you haf to zay for yourzelf?"! Hugs, Sxx PS. Meant to say that Tilda is beautiful!!

butlersabroad said...

Yikes, hope you're over the worst of the pneumonia, not a nice gift to have been given. Love Harry, no matter what she's saying, lovely card and those bloddy shoes are hurting my feet just looking at them!! Have a great New Year.

For having the nasty pneumonia, I'd say there is TOO much going on! You are supposed to be resting!! Of course Harry helps with reducing stress I'm sure, as do those GORGY shoes - walk carefully my dear. Get well and healthy in the New Year! You have works of art to create!

Love your punch 'storage!' Those shoes are certainly gorgeous! Thanks for visiting. The dinosaur will never be the same but I will do my best as she is Miss 5's most treasured possession!
Happy final WOYWW for 2010 and Happy 2011!

OMG Net those shoes are gorgeous - I'd love a pair of them.

Good to see Harry looking well, but sorry to hear about your pneumonia.

Wishing you a great 2011.

Pneumonia - owwie, that's nasty. Glad you are getting on the mend. I hope Harry has been nursing you well.

I'm sure the L.K.'s are contributing to the recovery too. Not sure my knees could cope these days, but they are certainly shoepercalafragilistic....etc.

Wishing you a healthier and happy crafting 2011.

Yes, I know I'm late getting here. I thought I had been here, but when I had to reboot, I lost track of where I was and now it's 2011 already. Took me a whole year to reach you (grin).

Pneumonia, pumps, and punches. It's a real phenomenal post. Hope you are now well and Harry is not too mad at your. She is really gorgeous. Those shoes are a killer! I could never walk in them. But I love the punches. MS has the best punches around. Happy belated New Year and I'll be back on Wednesday.

Harry's beautiful!

OMG! I love Harry and the shoes. You could have stopped there but I did enjoy looking at the punches too! Thanks for sharing! Vickie #69

MaggieC said...

Pneumonia is horrid, and really does teach you what muscles do what. Glad to hear you are on the mend. I am so jealous on all those lovely punches.

The Crafty Elf said...

Gotta love Harry!!! I want your punches.....honestly I do. Glad to hear you are feeling better, maybe you can get back in those shoes.

It is safe to apply a fertilizer specifically designed for bonsai. PondCare® Liquid Ammonia Test Kit. A rule of thumb is to treat your worms as vegans—no dairy, eggs, fish or meat.
