I am very tired this week as its been so busy.

The Craft Fair i spent weeks prepping for was a total disaster!! there was only about 20 folks turned up on the day as the Lady running it hadnt really done any advertising. I was feeling really sad by the end and there was a few tears as I had been so excited to do one. Taking the positive from it though I managed to go and coped so theres something amazing!!! 
Thank You to My Folks who came with me and supported me!!  I still ache from all the tense anxiety fuelled muscles yet!!! What a dafty!!!

Thats me for today, Im off to vote!!! EACK Jakes voting too as anyone from 16 can vote in this Referendum!!!

Snow Poop!!!! (and weekend piccys)

 Hi Everyone,

Here is my Whimsy Inspiration for this week. I have used the brilliant Wee Snow Happy from Stamp Art Designs By Kathryne. Isnt he just the cutest. You also get a free bonus sentiment file with your order.
 Now I have been trawling  over Pinterest and found this brilliant sentiment and some tic tacs so thought I would go for a couple of cards using it for the Craft Fair!!! Thought it would raise a smile!!! 
Card Recipes
Cards made using 5 x 5 Card.
Snow Happy Digi Stamp
Doodlebug Papers
Sentiment from Pinterest.
I had a very busy weekend and am now so tired!!! On Saturday Mum, Tom and I went to the Mortuary Chapel in our town. Its a Sandstone Chapel (Non Denominational) which dates back from the 1870s. It was built by a Local Man Patrick Allan Fraser. Its not open very often but its been Angus Heritage Weekend so we popped over. I have been a few times and adore the stonework. Heres a couple of pictures. 
 This is beside the front doors. The outside stonework is sadly worn away with the Scottish weather. 
 There are all sorts of animals in the stonework
Heres Tom looking down over the main chapel.
It was stunning. I managed to stay a wee while so a big plus for me!!!! (Even though it was quite busy!!!) 
Hope you enjoyed looking, Thanks for dropping by,

Shaped Cards...

Good morning and Happy Thursday, Phew the weekend is in sight!!!

 The theme this week on MAWTT is Shaped Cards picked by Debs. I decided to keep up the Festive theme and have made a Cracker Card (and some others!!!) 
I got these cards from a friend who didn't want them anymore. They are from Craftwork Cards. The papers are a freebie from a magazine. I think they are a Kanban One. I have made a couple of them with different papers too. All for the Craft Fair next Sunday (Gulp!!!)
