Marianne Creatables Button Flower Die, Flower and Leaves Die and inside is the Forest Branch Die

Hanglar and Stanglar Stamp
She was a right 'poser'!

I hope you had a super BH weekend. I spent most of my BH Monday unpacking and washing dirty laundry!

We loved our holiday on the beautiful Isle of Mull and saw some wonderful wildlife.

As I post for a few days I will put up a link to Daisy's Diary  so you can see some photos, if you wish, that my husband took as we enjoyed our visit there.

Daisy posted everyday so there are lots to look at and both Holly and Daisy had many adventures! (tic)

The 'Thank You' card above, uses some 'parts' of  THREE  Marianne Creatable Die Sets. The top button of the Button Flower Die and both sets of leaves from the Flower and Leaves Die, on the front of the card along with the Forest Branch Die for the inside of the card

I bought all the dies from http://www.craftsulove.co.uk/ who are free P and P until tomorrow 31st August !

Coloured with Copic Markers and Polychromos Pencils

The image is coloured with Copic Markers and Polychromos pencils and I used a White Gel Pen for the mega amount of doodling!

 The sentiment image is a LOTV Stamp, cut with a small circle nestie.

Doodle all the way!

Forest Branch Die used inside the card.

I only managed to make two and half cards while we were away.

I took shed loads of crafty stuff but because we had such good weather ( usually rains a lot in the 'Highlands!) we were out and about most days!

 I have a lovely Christmas card to show you tomorrow, again, using a Hanglar stamp.

Please pop by if you can and thanks for looking today.

BTW, many thanks for the good wishes and lovely, lovely comments .....Super stuff xxxx

My followers are very special to me.

The Isle of Mull and a problem with my 'Dongle'!

Hello Fans!

This post is just to let you know that I am unable to post any cards for the next couple of weeks. Hubby and I, along with our 'girls'! are up in the Scottish Highlands staying on the Isle of Mull .

This island is beautiful,wonderful and glorious but the phone signals, where we are, are naff!

I have a few cards to post and my last post to edit but my 'dongle' is driving me nuts 'cos the signal is so low and data transfer is SLOW or CRASH!

I cannot access FB or my email so it's just like the old days!

I have decided to put all my energies into having a good time by walking, reading, watching wildlife ( hubby is on a boat as I write this, taking photos of Sea Eagles! ) making cards and eating chocolate! I will post my cards 'wot I 'ave made' when I arrive home.

Ken is keeping up to date with Daisy's Diary by going into Tobermory each evening but it is taking hours if he wants to post text AND pictures !

Please don't forget me :(

I have some super stuff to show you (modest is my middle name!)

Pat ... I have received your email and I will answer it as soon as I get home.
Thank you for following my blog and also for the kind comments X :)

See you all soon.

Ps The local 'Chocolate Shop' has free internet connection and that is where we are at the moment !

Drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows and yummy cake ...the WEP connection is great so we will be back !!!
