The Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge...

Hi folks...the third Sunday of the month means it's time to hop on over to The Ribbon Girls and join in the fun...the colours chosen for this month's challenge are...
PASTELS
and seeing as I still had the fabulous Potting Shed Collection from Craftwork Cards on my workdesk...it had to be a Flowerpot Card using lots of delicious flowers...all available from The Ribbon Girl online store (you'll find the links below)


and now it's time for you to head over to The Ribbon Girls to check the fabulous prize on offer and feast your eyes on the beautiful inspiration from my teamies...
We had a very cute surprise visitor in the kitchen yesterday...poor little fella flew in the back door and couldn't find his way out again...it took almost an hour to coax him outside leaving me with a bit of a clean up job...poop on the lampshade...a broken spice jar and a pot of basil on the floor with earth everywhere...probably a young robin born in the garden last summer and returned to find a mate...

By the time you're reading this I'll be heading off to the
I'm not walking the 13mile or 7.8 mile route...I've volunteered to be a "dressed in a purple T-shirt and Hi-Vis jacket" marshal...ensuring the safety of walkers at my designated road junction and cheering them on their way...crikey perhaps I should have mentioned that some of the time I'm not safe to be let out alone.
See you all tomorrow

Potting Shed To The Rescue...

Hi folks...it's my turn to post over at the Craftwork Cards Blog today and I'm sharing a gift I made for the man in your life who loves gardening... made with one of my favourite paper collections...The Potting Shed. Did you know that gardening comes 3rd on the list of favourite male pastimes...no prizes for guessing the other two and then I had one of those rather woohoo lightbulb moments...the usual dilemma of what to get the male members of your family for Christmas...I suspect they all enjoy pottering around in the garden so I'm sure they would be delighted to receive their very own calendar to hang in their "Potting Shed" rather than the usual annual cop-out of SOCKS...


Why not make a matching gift bag and pop in a gift voucher from the local garden centre and hey presto...one Christmas present ticked off the list.
I've also made a "Potting Shed" Garden Journal but it needs a few finishing touches so I'll be sharing it with you on Monday...in the meantime enjoy your weekend whatever you've got planned and I'll see you all tomorrow for this month's Ribbon Girls Colour Challenge.

Emotional and very proud...

Edited to add: the answer may be NO but SCOTLAND now has a voice...I'm so proud of everyone who turned out to vote...a momentous day for democracy...

Hi folks...it's been a momentous emotional day...I'm very proud to be one of the 4.3 million Scots who showed the world how deeply we care about the future of our beloved Caledonia...an unbelievable "never seen before in the electoral history of the UK" record turnout at the polling stations shows how passionate we are about our homeland. We've certainly given the corridors of power at Westminster a big wake up call over the last few weeks..whichever way the vote goes...change is inevitable...this is a defining moment in our history and I hope and pray that the people of Scotland will unite behind the decision of the majority and stand together to make Scotland an even greater place to live for future generations.
OK Referendum rant over...it's Friday and that means it's sneaky peek time in the cubbyhole...we've had a busy busy week nailing the crafty list...marooned in the cubbyhole by the drizzly dreich weather and woohoo with Mr Mojo onside...the production line's been SMOKING...crikey even I'm surprised at how much is in the "OUT" tray...
DT Projects for Inspiration Emporium....tick

Kath's Klub at The Papeterie...tick

Fiskars October Newsletter...tick
 tomorrow's DT project for the Craftwork Cards Blog...tick
and Sunday's DT make for the Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge...tick
 I think I've earned some time off for good behaviour...don't you...a fun kicking up my heels night out with the Friday Girls...
See you all tomorrow

The Big Day...

Hi folks...it's the day of the Scottish Referendum...time for us Scots to make the decision that may well change the future of the country we love forever and to be honest there are pros and cons on both sides...hence why I've been sitting on the fence for the last few weeks...a choice of YES or NO...simple you might think but when you've got political debate coming out of your ears...in a nutshell it all comes down to one thing...WHO DO YOU BELIEVE...
the YES camp led by the brimming with confidence but evasive on some issues Mr Salmond...
the NO camp with their ridiculous "better together" scaremongering tactics...
David Cameron and the UK Government who have suddenly noticed we're here and are falling over themselves to keep us or is it the billions of pounds of oil revenue they want to keep...
or the financial institutions who are high tailing it over the border...apparently concerned about the bottom falling out of OUR pension pots (excuse me but didn't that happen some years ago at the hands of my fellow countrymen...Gordon Brown and the scumbags at RBS)...
By this time tomorrow...we'll either all be dressed in our kilts...rampaging to the border to raise the Saltire and fortify the defences at Hadrians Wall...
or for many the life long dream of Scottish Independence will lie in tatters. But whatever way the vote goes...the people of Scotland will rise to the challenges that lie ahead...we have a long history of overcoming adversity...are fiercely proud of this wonderful country and passionate about our Scottish heritage.
On a lighter note the cubbyhole crew have been pondering for weeks over "some may say" an equally important decision...
Do we store these little beauties in SET ORDER or in COLOUR FAMILIES...perhaps a cuppa will help...
See you all tomorrow
