I must confess…





I have been carried away since I found the range od Sugar Nellie stamps from Funky Kits. I bought three, then when I stamped them, had to go and buy another six! I have been colourng and painting. My husband wants to know what mt obsession is with colouring little dolls. Every night when I come home from work I have sat down with a laptray to colour and paint. I have tried oil based pencils, water colour pencils, pigment powder paints with Mica, water colour paints and acrylics. All seeing what different effects they gave on the lovely little nellies.

Now I have made up some of the designs into cards and ATC’s.

Feeling Better…

I must have felt ill, to take myself off to A&E with severe chest pains. Little did I know I would be kept in for five days undergoing a multitude of tests and complete bed rest with a suspected blood clot on my lungs. After days of blood thinning injections my stomach is more black and blue bruises than pale pink flesh!
But I have rested and now am feeling better.

I haven’t even managed to do much crafting while I have been ill, although I have managed a little freebie digi kit which you can download HERE.

Our little darling Ellie has gone….


after weeks of medical treatment for which she had seemed to stump the vetinary profession, our beautiful little chocolate Point Siamese cat died at the weekend.

Ellie had been loosing weightand we though we would get her checked out, to which the vets removed her teeth as they suspected she had a painful gum disease. She seemed to get better until a few days later she developed a huge absess on her jaw which required daily antibiotics. Then after several weeks of treatment and still no improvement she failed desperately and was rushed to hospital. during this time they tested her for everything from cat AIDS to Leukemia and was clear of any disease.

Ellie was in hospital for five days while they had her on a drip for fluids and IV antibiotics. She then started to get well again and came back home to play with her partner Harvey and her kittens Lyla and Pixie.

Ellie was home for only a week then she stopped eating started to deteriorate again. She was so week she could hardly stand. We took her back to the vets who sent her off to hospital again. After few more tests they told us she had a form of cancer which her organs had failed.

we only had four years with Ellie and we miss her cuddles and affection. Her kittens continue to stroll around the house crying for her and searching her usual nesting places.

I made this layout to remember her by:
