  1. I won some fab blog candy just before Christmas and have finally had time to do a bit of crafting and made a card with it. It's over on my blog, here - I'd love to know what you think. Hugs,

    Card I made with blog candy I won

    Thank ladies - I'm really pleased you like it. :-) Eve, two step stamps are where you have two stamps to make one image. This image is one from a couple of sets of Stampin' Up stamps I won, and they do a lot of two-step stamps. Basically, the more solid, background colour is stamped first, then using a stamp positioner you stamp the second, outline image over the top. It's a really simple concept but I think the effects are brilliant. I'm so chuffed having won this candy! Hugs,

    Trying to Update Photo

    I wonder if anyone can help? I've been trying to update my profile picture but without any success. I've got a photo ready, which easily complies with the file size requirements, but for some reason it just won't upload. I've been removing my existing photo, then browsing my pc to insert the photo I want. The correct file details are appearing in the "browse" box, and when I click upload, it says it has uploaded successfully. Unfortunately, when I look at my profile picture again, there is the old one, back like a bad penny. Anyone got any ideas?

    Trying to Update Photo

    Woohoo - it's updated now!!!!! I love this new photo. Alan took it while we were on honeymoon in Cornwall in June last year. I love how chilled I look! Thanks for all the help, everyone. Hugs,

    Trying to Update Photo

    Thanks Rosie. I don't think it's that, though, as I've already re-sized the photo and the file is small enough to be accepted. Really odd that the old one keeps appearing back again.. I keep removing it but it's as if it's on elastic! Hugs,

    Card featuring Nude Stamp

    Hi folks. Following my earlier post canvassing opinion I've posted photos on my blog (rather than on here) of a card I've made featuring a gorgeous nude image I picked up a while ago. It's on the Becki and Alan blog linked in my signature below if you'd like to have a look. I hope you like it! Thanks for looking.. Hugs,

    Card featuring Nude Stamp

    Thank you everyone! Alan received the card yesterday and was thrilled to bits with it. And thankfully, he didn't think she looked like she was being sick (phew!!!) Thanks so much for your lovely comments.. Hugs,

    Started My Christmas Cards Now!

    Beautiful as always Natalie! Well done on deciding to make some after all (and good girl Maggie, for persuading you..). Hugs,
  10. They're really pretty, Helen, and I'm sure they'll be appreciated. On the glue question, my fave glue is Art Institute Dries White. It's a fab all-rounder. As well as that I always keep double-sided tape on hand, and silicone glue for those really stubborn things that refuse to stay put with anything else, or for decoupage. Welcome to the wonderful word of papercrafting - you'll find it hard to escape now.. hee hee! Hugs,

    Card featuring Nude Stamp

    Hee hee - I've just been and had another look at the stamp and I can see what you mean! But no, it IS her hair, I can assure you.. Strong stuff, Leffe! Hugs,

    Card featuring Nude Stamp

    Thanks Lacey!
  13. This is beautiful! I'd love to try metal embossing but not dared so far. I bet it took ages! Well done!

    Sunrise Photos....

    The countryside round about Mum and Dad's house (where I'm now living) is so amazing, I've posted some photos on my blog, of the views I wake up to every day. The sunrise yesterday was particularly beautiful. If you want to have a peep, they're on the Becki's Ramblings blog linked below. Thanks for looking.. Hugs,
  16. I wonder if you would let me have your opinion..? I am currently working on a card using a one of a set of four beautiful stamps and when it's finished was thinking of posting pictures on here. The only thing is, the stamps are line drawings of nude women and I'd hate to offend anyone. They are really tasteful, not at all pornographic, but I thought I'd better canvass opinion before I put up photos. If you'd rather I didn't, then I can just post pics on my blog so it would be up to you if you wanted to go and look at them. Perhaps you would let me know what you think. Hope you don't mind me raising the question.... Hugs,

    Question re appropriateness...

    Thanks for all your comments. I'll put the photos on my blog tomorrow. In the meantime, I've posted some photos of the fab views I wake up to now, and of the amazing sunrise I watched yesterday. They're on the Becki's Ramblings blog linked below.. Hugs,

    What to make with bananas?

    I love them baked. You just wrap them in foil, sprinkle a little brown sugar and cinnamon over them, then add a teaspoon of brandy and parcel them up. Twenty minutes in a medium oven and they are just gorgeous! Enjoy, whatever you do with them. I'm hungry now! Hugs,

    Advent Calendar

    Oh oh oh! I remember these from when I spent a lot of time in Germany many years back - it's gorgeous!! I bet your boyfriend will be thrilled with it. Well done! Hugs,

    Help! with my flower punch.

    I find punching through kitchen foil works a treat, or even very fine sandpaper, if you've got any. Good luck!

    Question re appropriateness...

    No, that's fine. I was thinking that that might be the best approach. Suddenly occurred to me this morning that perhaps some people might be upset or indeed do exactly what you said, look and then object anyway. Thanks for your comment. Scary place, the internet, isn't it. So easy to get yourself into a muddle without meaning to! Hugs,
