Summer Blooms at...... TioT's.


Summer Blooms.....
is the new theme over at...
Roses are the flowers that represent  the months of summer to me.
I have created this layered digital card,
 you may wonder why I choose to use  digital programs for my  cards just now
 and the answer for me is a simple one....
I enjoy the process and I can be sure the card gets to its destination on the correct  day, in an email .

Thank you for calling in here today and I hope you will call over to TioT's

Make it Feminine...... at Try it on Tuesdays


One of a Kind

'Make it Feminine'
is the new challenge theme over at
I'm sure we all have different ideas on how ' feminine'  fits into our lives and our  art,
the team have shared lots of ideas and we hope you will join us and share your takes on this topic.
My page is a digital creation . I find it hard these days to hold things for very long without dropping them, which create their own problems if paint or inks  are  involved. 
My  thoughts behind this page ...
Eva,  dreaming of being a dancer and thinking she could never be a graceful Ballerina.
She doesn't realise how special and  lovely she looks to her family and friends.
She is for sure......'one of a kind'..

Thank you for calling in here and I hope you will join us at TioT's.

Make it Magical..... at TioT's

 Make it Magical......

is our new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays.

My thoughts behind this theme were to make a digital   Birthday card to send to

a fun loving friend.  Only one candle on the cake  as, when reaching a certain age we may  want to  subtract a few years. However the birds all turned up to sing  a birthday greeting

 to make the day magical.

[notes  about my digital work can be found in my sidebar] 

We hope you will join us at TioT's please pop over to see how the girls all interpreted this subject.

Thank you for calling in to see me today you are always welcome here.

Behind Closed Doors..... for AJJ

 1st July and a new theme for us at Art Journal Journey.
 is our hostess this month and has chosen the theme.....
Doors and/or Arches.
Please call over to  AJJ and see what Wendy has created to inspire us for this topic
 and to read the information  she has shared with us

Once again I have chosen to create my page in the  digital computer
 programs I use, {notes in my sidebar]  a selection of images and layers 
were selected to go with my thoughts behind the page.
Who knows what is behind a closed door,
it takes courage to open the door to find out what is there.
which door would you choose.?

Here comes Summer.... at TioT's

 Here Comes Summer....

is the next theme over at Try it on Tuesdays.

We hope you will join us there.  What do you enjoy about this season of the year, is it the sunny days,

going on holiday,  relaxing in the garden or on the beach, visiting somewhere  that has a history or is modern to look at. the list could be very long.

We hope you will join us and call over to see how the team interpreted the theme.


I used a variety of stamps on the scene, took a photo, then  mounted the piece in the
 digital computer program I use [notes in my sidebar]
My thoughts behind this scene are that Fred took Maud to the beach,
so he could sit and watch the waves and have a few daydreams.
Maud had other ideas she wanted to talk and declared she was a mermaid.
Getting no reaction to this remark I think she would just sit and enjoy her drink.

Thank you for calling in today 
your visit is always appreciated.

I'm NOT catching fish .... for AJJ



      I'm NOT catching fish  

Well its nearly the end of June and I have managed to make

 another digital journal page for Mia's theme....Fish

 over at Art Journal Journey

I am struggling to create any type of art and  journal pages just now.

my mojo went walk about a number of weeks ago  and hasn't returned home as yet.

Add to this, a theme,  that I have to admit has caused me  a  big metal block on the topic. 

I am not  someone who enjoys the sea , I'm more country, fields and woodland.

Anyway I found in my digital library this vintage bathing scene, added some fish

then decided that Molly was trying to catch a toy  boat the boys has lost earlier

 and not the fish who were happily swimming with her friends in the sea.

Thank you for stopping by to see me

you are very welcome here.

Recycle at Try it on Tuesdays

The new theme at Try it on Tuesdays is....


I often use an  old calendar ,cards, cut outs from magazines  to make a quick card

 or a digital page.[notes in my sidebar]

I'm sure we all have quite a few cards etc that we have loved and cannot throw away, so why not recycle them and   help save our waste and our planet.

This card is simply cut and layered using an

 old calendar[ Wrendale designs by Hannah Dale]

I also made  digital cards, saves the postage  as well .

 We hope you will join us for this theme and look forward to seeing what you recycle,

please pop over to the TioT's blog to see what we have been making.
