Dont you just love quick projects? A swipe of a blue paint dabber, a dash of pearl paint dabber, stamp, stamp, stamp, stamp and stamp, a few dabs of glue, a sprinkle of pearls and c’est ça – done! I had to photograph it with no image as I kept getting too much reflection from the glossy paper. But at lease we will always have Paris
I am entering this in the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week – Anything Goes!!
Creative Card Crew – No Flowers
I made this double sided contrasting tag out of scraps left over from making this. The card and tag co-ordinate so nicely that I am considering making a gift bag to go with them both. Not yet however – I am trying to make myself use up a lot of my scraps on my desk before cutting into new papers!
This fits the challenge over at Stampin’ for the Weekend – ‘Tag It’, so im off to enter it over there.
Sparkle sparkle. Loving my new – and free – Canon PowerShot camera. Not bad macro mode at all!!

This was made following the layout over at Clean and Simple. I used Bazil blue card stock as the base and repeatedly stamped a paisley print image onto white card. I photo matted this onto black paper. Added a sentiment using foam dots to pop it up, I dont know if that shows in the photo. About 15mins and very inky fingers (and desk?!) later and it was done. I do love clean and simple cards!!

This is what happens when you are too lazy to leave the house to take some photos and your pet rabbits wont sit still long enough for the camera. But on the plus side, when you are done photographing them they make a mighty tasty treat
Ok so its technically a bad photo, but trust me, we laughed and laughed and laughed when I said I was stopping to take a picture of a window full of micky!! (Im still laughing!)
It was sunny yesterday so my friend came over and we sat out in my garden all day. I forgot to wear a hat like I had been all summer so today my face is a bit red :/ But hey, it was 18degrees in Ireland in September, and its looking to be the same again today, so no complaints from me. I much prefer the sunshine to dull grey days!
As an extra bonus the sunshine was the extra boost that my sunflower plants needed so now I have sunflowers in my garden
Ok so these two pics ain’t the most technically perfect, a little soft and noisy. But sometimes I think a technically imperfect image works if you manage to capture something a little bit different. If it means something to you then as far as I’m concerned that’s what matters. I don’t take pictures for other people, I take them for me. I do like other people to enjoy my images though. But sometimes the subject matter don’t grab everyone!
In the first image above is my old Syrian hamster QT (r.i.p), licking the bars of his playpen. The second image (below) is our little dwarf hamster Daisy making a determined break for freedom, showing some impressive climbing technique.
Both shots involved me lying on the kitchen floor for quite some time with the camera pointed at the little critters. They move so much faster than my finger can push the button that I kept missing lots of the funny things they were getting up to. The dwarf hamsters are lightning fast. (See this video here!!)I need a faster trigger finger!!

Or maybe from a photographers point of view thou shouldst photograph to live not photograph to eat!!
You would never guess I had been reading some Socrates. He really was a very deep and philosophical guy, with ideas about life and how to live it that really make you think. For example, how true is this, hundreds of years after he wrote it, “Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of – for credit is like fire; when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.” Deep powerful and meaning full stuff there.
Then he comes out with a gem like this, “By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you’ll be happy. If you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.”
Love it! Im going to change the word wife to husband, and it shall be just as true (if not more so ;p)
