On the theme of horses

Thor in boot

Thor In Boots

I bought my horse some new boots, most horses have metal shoes nailed to their feet. Nothing so common as that for my boy! He now has a snazzy pair of hoof boots to go walking in. He loves them and did a spontaneous trot up the yard to try them out. Nothing exciting in that for any other horse but he usually minces on the yard as if he was walking on hot coals. He loves his cavallo boots.


Blogging for the sake of it

Spencer with his rosette

Thought I’d just blog for no reason at all.  There are no cards or scrapbook layouts to share.

I did get some stamping done with some stamps I borrowed from my sister but have only stamped onto blank paper for future use.  Visited my neice at the weekend as her littlest one had his first birthday.  It was the same day as a friend’s 40th!

I made my friend a lovely photo montage  of all her dogs, 1o in total.  I may put the photo up another time as it’s on a different PC. I also went to a horse show, with another friend who was competing.  It was her and her new horse’s first time out and they did ok.  Come home with a rosette.  See photo 🙂

Was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia to go along with the ME/CFS, that could be fun.  Hopefully the new tablets will work and not leave me with a groggy brain.

Challenge Blogs

I am really enjoying the challenge blogs and finding it great for getting me thinking about crafting again.


I do wish the organisers/admin/challengers would include an end date, it would make it easier.  Especially those who say week#..  I don’t know when you week starts and ends 😦


Getting into nail art after getting some paints for my birthday.  Been looking at a template machine on Ebay, it will make life so much easier, only I can’t remember my password and am having issues logging in to my email.

This week’s chalange blogs all look really good so will be having a go.  Finding them really helpful at making me use up my stash supplies, although it’s hard to make a card when I haven’t got a recipient in mind.

I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #59

Promarkers #59

Card for the promarkers #59 challenge


I’ve not done any cardmaking or scrapbooking for a looooong time although I have still being buying stash!  When a friend gave me some promarkers I thought doing some challenges would get me back into the swing of things.

The stamp is Butterfly Kisses “Madam Chic” that I bought at the NEC last year and haven’t used until this card!  I used 2 different embossing folders that have been sitting unused too.  The promarkers used were Coral and Dusky Rose for the hat with Forest Green and Leaf Green for the ribbon and collar.  The face was coloured with a mix of Ivory, Satin and Blush.  Lips coloured with Crimson and the eye shadow is Duck Egg.  Papers were bits in stash and freebies from magazines, tag was cut from a Sizzex die.

First card with promarkers

My first play with Promarkers.  Stamp is Lili of the Valley and papers are some I got free in a magazine.


Working out how this works.  Here’s a little digital layout of Amba
