Quotes at Tag Tuesday

Hi All

Still very cold and a thick frost here today but beautiful blue sky with sunshine as well. We have a lot of cleaning up and sorting out to do after we had a combi bolier fitted this week. It has left so many things to sort out and clear up. One bonus is a huge empty cupboard where the copper cylinder used to be--now what can I put in there??

Couldn't resist the challenge at Tag Tuesday  as Michele has asked us to use a quote. She is also giving a prize as well so a chance to win that if you enter a tag.


My tag has a  background of one of Frida Kahlo paintings and I did brighter prints of some of the painting and cut them out to highlight parts of it. Then I used a Split Coaster stamp that has Frida and one of her quotes on it. Had to do it on a white background as the ink didn't show up on the painting. The whole thing was them stuck onto some orange card and I am happy to say it is now hung on my wall so I can look at it as I type.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Love is in the Air at TIOT


Hello Everyone   

Hope you are well and not having weather problems where you are. It has been very cold, wet and windy here but only a light sprinkling of snow so far this year.

Try it on Tuesday  have invited us to show our 'Love is in the Air' ideas and there is still over a week to enter with your creation.



I made a card. It started out with a red card background, then a few light stamps of a black ink pad and some gold paint. The Love stamp is from Chocolate Baroque and called Punky Romance. Lots of great stamps in the set.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx.

Have a Heart at Tag Tuesday

Hi All

Another two weeks have flown by and Tag Tuesday started their new theme last Tuesday. Sandie has chosen Have a Heart as the subject this time.



This is something I have been wanting to try for a while so now was a good time.

I designed the three heart shapes together then printed them out onto patterned paper You can save them if you like to try this as they are in GIF format so can be printed out as an outline on any backing. I cut around the middle heart leaving a little bit at the centre top and bottom. This section can then be folded to stand up from the rest. The whole thing was now stuck onto card leaving the stick up bit free to stand out


I found the quote on a free quote site and have saved it as a GIF as well if you want to use it. I  typed it out in a fancy font as well as a plain one

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Try it on Tuesday

Hi All

I hope you have had a great week and you are looking forward to the weekend. 

Try it on Tuesday have Fire and Ice as their theme this time and there are some amazing ideas from the talented team there.


I did a digital piece this time. I found the quote on Google and then made a picture of what came into my mind from the quote.

Plenty of time to join in this great challenge.


Our humidifier came to the end of its days a few weeks ago so Vic made a garden robot out of the pieces and other things he found here and there. The robot is called Ray Darr and will go into the garden when the weather gets better. I think he is going to have a few solar lights somewhere as well so should be a fun addition to our garden art.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx
