Kids! Who’d ‘Av ‘Em?

JC Blog & DG

Let’s just recap on the kid’s 6 weeks school holiday. We’re one week in & so far we’ve lost our TV & internet service for a few days following a series of violent thunderstorms and now my son has broken his wrist!!
He was out on his bike (without his crash helmet!!) and hit an unseen ditch. He went over the handle bars & now has a broken right wrist, bruised head & swollen cheekbone, grazes to his shoulder & bruising to his left hand. He had a similar accident once before & I bought him a helmet but on this one occasion he left home without it and disaster struck. It’s really shaken him up but he won’t ever leave home without it again….he was lucky it could have been a lot worse.

So….moving onto the fluffy, bubble-wrapped part of my world, here’s a card I made using on of my own digi stamps – Viburnum. Coloured with Promarkers with papers from Doodlebug.
Off to wrap my offspring in cotton wool.
Have a groovy week

Greetings everyone.
I hope you are all well &, if in Blighty, coping with the heatwave?
I had a brilliant weekend with fav’ daughter as I took her to see The Rocky Horror Show live at Milton Keynes. At last…a family member who finally ‘gets’ why I love it soooo much. She too is now hooked. It was an amazing night out & if the show’s heading your way I recommend it 100%!!!!
Back down to earth I have a card for you using one of own digis

It’s been yet another scorcher here in ol’ Blighty today. The garden is holding up, mainly coz it’s jammed-packed with plants which helps hold in the moisture.
My card today features my Love-In-A-Mist digi simply coloured with Promarkers.
Love-In-A-Mist (Nigella)are easy to grow from seed. Sow in the autumn & just leave them to get on with it. The foliage will start to appear before the year ends and should make it thru’ the harshest winters. Those growing in the Tidy Garden have been left to drop their seed year in, year out. Delicate foliage, stunning sky-blue flowers & attractive seed pods. Let them pop open & drop their seed & then cut back the foliage when it starts to fade & the cycle will begin again.
Here endeth today’s plant lesson…lol xxx

I’m Melting!

A (1)

I think I may have chosen the wrong career path…gardening in temperatures close to ‘melting’ is not good when you’re a shade-seeking, heat-hating muppet!
And…I bet if I weigh myself tomorrow I won’t have shifted a drop, let alone an ounce.
Oh well…moving sweatingly on…my card today features one of my own digi stamps….the Centaurea – Perennial Cornflower. Most folk have these in the traditional blue form but I have recently got my gardening mitts on 2 other cracking varieties, one is a white petal version that turns pink as it ages & the other is the deepest purple / black. You can see them growing in my garden here at Tidy Gardens by Jane.
Coloured with a combination of Polychromos n’ Promarkers.
Off to find a cool, shady corner this weekend…hope you have a good’n xxxx

Phwoar! What a Scorcher

JC Blog (5)

Blighty is basking in a heatwave at the mo’ but it won’t last coz I’ve gawn n’ dug out the fans & Mr C’s dusted down the BBQ. It’s our annual ‘curse’ to any promising weather!
Twas favourite daughter’s 16th birthday last week….it doesn’t seem like yesterday since we bought her home as a tiny baby from the hospital, but according to the calendar (and the state of her room) she is now 16 and all grow’d up.
So here’s the card I made for her, using an image from D'Arcy's Diaries and coloured with my new Polychromos pencils. Took me a lot of time / research  / courage to finally purchase some of these pencils but I’ve now got quite a few to play with so early days with my colouring skills (just don’t let my Promarkers know there are new kids on the block!)
A hot week gardening beckons….if I don’t melt….see you again soon.
Have a great week xxxx
