Free on Friday 28 July 2017

Welcome to Free on Friday, now I don't want to upset anybody, but with July nearly over it's a fast ride to Christmas!  I know a lot of you folks don't want to think about Christmas just yet - but it's coming :)

I have started a new project, colouring-in prayer cards, Bible tip ins, how ever you want to use them.  I have made my first one and this is where I would like your help - please!

Now this one is 3 and a half inches by 5 inches, I decided it might be too small to colour in if it was 3 x 4.   So I would like to know if this size is a good size and also if anyone has a problem with the ink smudging from inkjet printers.  I was thinking I could make the black, grey, so it wouldn't cause so much of a problem.  Please let me know what you think.  Have a great weekend - I am hoping the rain will stop :)

It's a breezy day today.  Not too bad for temperature - I haven't put a jumper on yet, but then I am indoors :)   A few days ago I ordered a stainless steel rubbish bin for my in-laws off Tesco Direct.  Today I got a phone call asking me "Did I order a bed?"  apparently instead of a bin a bed was delivered!  Taking the order number off the receipt they had been given, it tallied with my order.  The delivery driver had given the right receipt, just the wrong parcel!  A few phone calls later and it was all sorted and hopefully as I post this they will have their new bin :)

Today I got kinda sidetracked - which is par for the course!  I have a folder on my computer called "To Be Sorted",  I came across a picture and the window in the picture caught my eye.


This is the window and this is what I did --

 This one will fit on an A6 card.  The ones below are half A5 size which is 74 x 210 mm or 2.9 x 8.3 inches.  I actually thought DL size was half A5, but when I googled it, it wasn't.


I made two cards with this design which you are welcome to.





For the rest of the vintage picture you will have to wait a little while :)  Hope the sun is shining where you are - but not too hot x

Hello and a warm welcome to another Free on Friday.  I am posting rather late today, having just watched Phantom of the Opera.  I just love that film and the music.   I did see a live production of it which was amazing.  Do you have a favourite musical/show?

Today I have a Japanese morning glory image.  This came from a site called Vintage Printable.  I spent some time making the image more crisp, then I did a coloured version too.



 Hope you like them, see you soon x

July challenge on at 2CraftyCritterCrazies

The July challenge for 2CraftyCritterCrazies has started.   This is my card for the challenge:


The image is called Birdhouse 2 and is from Limited Runs  For the card I added bird stickers and ribbon.  The one below is a mixed media piece which I photographed and then digitally altered as originally I had painted the roses red!

Come and join in the fun, you make anything you like, but the main feature(s) must be a critter.

Welcome to Free on Friday, the weather is cooler today, yesterday was hot, hot, hot!  Now I know some of you ladies endure temperatures far greater than here in the UK - how do you cope?  I find the heat so draining!  I have never been one for sitting in the sun - still want to move to Australia though:)  I figure that 3 months of heat cancels out 3 months of cold in the UK.  It's an event looking less likely to happen - sigh.  Anyway...today I have been working with some pictures from an old cookery book from Gutenberg.
