Final card for Feb

Hi friends

I hope you don't think I have cheated on you, well I have though! Sorry. I have been really busy since Thursday and didn't have time to make a new cards for my sister so I went to my trusty stack of cards and did an Eeny Meeny Miny Mo and this card was in the box I chose. I know Chicky hadn't seen it before, but I know many of you have, so I do apologise, I'll try harder next time, promise!. Chicky loved it!

Well it's a beautiful Spring like day here in this part of Wiltshire, I hope the sun is shining for you too, it does make a difference to how you feel in yourself seeing that yellow orb in a pretty blue sky. These day's have been quite rare her lately, so I'm making the most of it.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. I probably won't do another new post until next Thursday is done & dusted.

Thank you all again for all the fantastic support you give me in so many ways. Thank you so much X

Lots & love & hugs

Tina XX


Here Goes!













I really hope you'll forgive me doing a second showing of this card.

Talk soon XX

  3. Hi Jane just popped in while doing a meal for Chick. I must admit it was from a long time ago. My goodness, I went back to have a look and it was May 2014.

    She did like like it, and thank you for the compliment about my roses. I'm with you on the bow unless it's with Sue's bias binding ribbons which you can colour yourself. I used to put bows on quite a few of my first cards, but I guess I've grown up now.

    Enjoy you weekend too. Big hugs to you also.X

    Love

    1. Hi Hazel

      How are you, well I hope?

      I didn't realise I made this card back in May 2014, how time flies.

      Thank you for calling it a Tina card again, and I really miss seeing Patricia's flowers on her blog too. I think I will start the oldie cards in a few weeks, as a family we have a very difficult one in 2 weeks.

      Lovely to see you again
      Talk soon, Love

  7. Morning Tina. What a lovely card. The colour combination is great. I wish I could make gorgeous flowers like you but no matter how hard I try they don't turn out as good as yours. I will just have to keep practising I suppose. It's great to see your beautiful cards on your blog again I have missed them. Best wishes Loraine Jefferis xx

    1. Hi Loraine

      Thank you Loraine I'm glad you like it. I don't know if I did a tutorial on this rose, but I would be happy to do one in a couple of weeks if you would like.

      It's really nice to be on my blog again even if is in small doses.

      Sending you best wishes too.

      Love

  9. Hello Tina,
    Sorry, I'm all sixes and sevens this morning so I'll try again!!!!
    What a beautiful card, it's exquisite - I wish I could open a box and say "Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Mo" and a card like this would appear! Love, love, love it.
    I'll be thinking of you all on the 3rd and send love, prayers and peace.

      Thank you Jeanie, that's a lovely comment and yes the butterflies were made from parchment. When I get back into the swing of things again I'll start doing a list of products used.

    2. Hello Tina!
      I'm at the cow's tail again and I much prefer their eyes and lovely lashes!!
      I have had a migraine so been out of order or something!
      Your card is lovely and I don't remember seeing that one so maybe I hadn't found your blog in 2014!
      It would have been a real shame for it to have spent any longer in a box - much better to be enjoyed by us and more importantly your sister! I love the ribbon, butterflies and beautiful flower with the addition of black which looks almost like lace!
      I won't forget you in the next few days, be assured of that. I was on holiday last year when I read your blog so I remember the date as it's just after my husband's birthday.
      Take care my dear!
      Love Myra xx

    3. Hi Myra

      You make me smile every time I hear from you. Pooo don't go down that end, I'll always think of you as lovely cow eyes & beautiful lashes no matter when you come visit me here, not the butt end!.

      Really pleased you likes Chick's card, and the bow.

      Myra, I'm really sorry, it's sounds like you have wipe out migraines, really not nice!

      Maybe I can get away with showing some older cards until I get back into full swing. I'm working on something foe Evelyn at the moment. I know some people will think Why, but she did exist, I held her ,kissed her and gave her a life times of hugs for as long as we were allowed. Although she is not here in person, I'm a proud Grandma and I will never let her birthday go without celebrating it, and I know you understand this, as do all the wonderful ladies here on my blog.

      Thank you Myra for keeping us in your thoughts. I got your email and will write later when I've put the other half to bed ( Man Flu, my god talk about miking it ). I've asked him to sleep in our caravan as I don't want to catch it till Thursday is over but he said NO! Hey Ho!

      Love & Hugs Myra

  12. Hey gorgeous you're back ☺ you have no idea how much I've been thinking of you that's why I'm here. Every night I think I must check Tina's blog then I close down about 9pm then think a few choice words because I'd forgotten to pop in !! I'm so pleased I remembered tonight, I can only apologise for not getting here sooner what must you think my lovely friend !! As usual your cards are a sheer delight and Mo is beautiful absolutely gorgeous Tina. I don't know how you've done it, you've done really well to do the special cards you've posted, I'm literally having to force myself into my little room, had I not had an order to take with me to next market I don't think I'd have gone in at all !I have so many ideas stored to use Sue's wonderful SB accessory dies but no inclination to do one single card !! Anyway hon, now I know you feel up to blogging again I'll pop in like the old days lol before I go I'm sending you a massive old hug to take with you Thursday but make some room in your bag as I'll have a whole heap more for you before then πŸ˜€ love ya gal xxx 🌹🌹🌹🌼

    1. Hi Boss

      How you do'in. Lovely to have you back here too. I'm coming back slowly, February is my busy month regarding birthdays, It's been tough but It's also been a good kick up my crafty backside to come back slowly. I didn't realise I had so many new people that haven't seen my past work so I'll either do a midweek blog with some oldies or I might do it on Friday's. I'm just trying to keep myself busy, but I have to say I have enjoyed myself here again. I had two little daffodil dies arrive today like little narsissi's (I hope spelling is right)to make Evelyn's memory present for Claire & Toby.

      Sounds like your mojo has been on vacation too. It'll come back with a vengeance soon I'm sure.

      I hope you Andy & Cassie are OK, is she still getting you up at stupid o'clock?

      Thank you for my hug & I've packed the rest.

      Love & Hugs Steph

  13. Hi Tina sorry I'm a little late I've been catching up with all the emails for a couple of month as I have had a Stent put in my heart
    so haven't been upto doing anything was on bed rest as I'm 70 in July the cardiac doctor said more rest. The good thing is OH has been doing all the housework but he doesn't see what I see πŸ‘€πŸ˜‚
    Anyway Tina your card has three WOW's from me it's stunning your flowers are amazing & your butterflies ( my addiction HiHi ) are also amazing I bet your sister loved her card.
    Love to you & your lovely family Lynda xx

    1. Hi Lynda

      It's lovely to hear from you whenever you pop in.

      Goodness Lynda you have had a tough time are you on the mend now?.Glad you are taking full advantage of the OH, but they don't tend to see the dust we see or put things straight like we do. Anyway just enjoy being waited on the dust will still be there when you are feeling stronger. Look after yourself Lynda sending love & hugs as a small contribution to your speedy recovery X. My word Lynda I can't believe you are going to be 70 this year. I saw you at Ally Pally back in Apr 2015. I was there with my daughter Claire & I met Tres & Rose from Chester. I recognised you from my blog picture and was going to stop you as you walked towards me Rose then grabbed my arm & took me over to meet Sue and I never saw you again. Hopefully we'll meet one time soon at AP.

      Sending you love & Hugs

  14. Good morning Tina, a wee Blast from the Past ... that's me not your card!!
    Yes! a card we have seen before but WOW! oh! WOW! it's well worth seeing again.
    Look forward to seeing some of your other older "Tina" cards everyone was a winner.
    Since my computer updated itself to Windows 10 I have lost so much. I can't get my photos from my files to my Blog I admitted defeat and gave up. I really miss it but Hey! Ho! it's not that important.
    Thinking of you all

    1. Goodness Hi Patricia

      How are you?, well I hope.

      The first time around I got a WOW, this time around I got 2 WOW's Thank you. It must look better with age. I don't mean you or me I mean the card. I don't mean you don't look better with age, Oh for goodness sake someone gag me. Thank you Patricia.

      Craig keeps telling me to update to windows 10 but a bit worried now. I'm pretty useless on the computer other than what I need to upload my picture and type my blog the rest of it I wear Craig & Paul's patience out. They are constantly telling if in doubt don't press, then when I don't they say why didn't you open it I sent it to you. Like you, Hey Ho!

      I might put an old one on over the weekend.

      Say Hello to Hazel for me and send her my love, she has been wonderful with Claire.

      Love
