My 100 Themes
The Digital Whispers Challenge
This is me!
I am a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. I have two wonderful children and their better halves! Two grandchildren, ditto, and two beautiful great grandchildren.
I am very disabled and spend most of my time in a wheelchair in front of this computer. I'd fade away without it. It's my contact with my friends and the great world wide web!
I am surrounded with most of my family who are very supportive, caring and loving. I am indeed blessed.
The Challenge this week on Digitalmania was to design something in the style of Teesha Moore.
Well this lady almost invented Zetti and to try and emulate her style is virtually impossible.And Zetti is not really my 'thing'. You all know I'm mostly into vintage romance and roses and fairy tales. She does fantastic journal pages that are filled with 'clutter' and scribblings. Anyway. I've had a go and posted these two examples of 'my' style of Zetti. I'll post a couple more tomorreow.
I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful weather. It's almost a heatwave here! I think my son is
sending it up from France. Happy day everyone.
Oh I almost forgot, Cindy Adkins has featured me as one of her profiles on her new blog Shabby Chic Girls Club Thank you so much dear Cindy.
All the detail in that lace and that hat! Well.......
So I thought she'd look lovely surrounded by butterflies.
All the elements etc. from my stash.
It's Thursday again and the weather is so beautiful, gorgeous blue sky and wall to wall sunshine. So I shall go to Chapel on my scooter as I haven't to pick up ladies today.
Richard came to tidy the garden yesterday and I got him to polish up my scooter, so it looks like new!
I have had so much trouble with the ordering of the other one, with many phone calls and no calls in return, even though they were promised. I am not used to that sort of service so I have asked for my money back. Hmm.... We'll see how long that takes.................
I hope I haven't been caught in a scam, the way they conduct business is definitely shonky.
Dezinaworld is showing her Trick or Treat Collage papers today on her site. These are a couple of designs I did for her with those sheets. Do click the link and pop over to see what her other
ladies have made for her.
Well I don't kinow how this will turn out. I am still having problems uploading pictures. I have gone a different route via Picasa again but that's not as easy as it looks. I have had a lovely lady from Holland, Ellie, trying to help me but so far I'm still tearing out my hair! LOL!
This picture I made yestereday while in a Fairy mood. Hope you like her.
Her wings are from Dezinaworld.
Background and elements from an old set in my stash.
Try as I may, I have been unable to put any pictures on, and believe me I've tried many times!
I don't know if anyone else is having this trouble.
Is it Blogger being naughty again or is it me?
So just a note to let you know I'm still here.
I was in the garden before 6am. It was just breaking light and the sky looked so pretty, with feathery strokes of rose and gold onto the blue.
Overhead streams of geese were winging their way, in several V formations, all talking at once to each other. A great cackling sound filled the air and I thought 'Here is my first piece of Magic for the day!'
Freddie has gone off for his check up again to hospital, worrying as usual whether the hospital car would come and then would it get there on time for his appointment.
I've had a long email from my sister, waxing very lyrical today. She sounded in a good mood....and who could not be on such a lovely Autumn day as this?
I've had a phone call from my son at the airport, having a coffee before boarding their plane for France.
They are both on leave and will have just over a week in their apartment. So Au Revoir to Stanley and Jenny. Stay safe my lovelies!
As you know, I design for Dezinaworld and June has a couple of fantastic sheets up you won't want to miss. They are Transparent Wings and Wingless Ladies. The ladies you can use alone but they are gorgeous with wings added.
The top pic shows two of her ladies and a set of the wings.
The middle pic is a lady I sort of designed myself with a set of wings added.
And the third pic I am back in Fairyland, with one of her ladies and a magical unicorn.
Most of you know I am away with the fairies most of the time!!
Please go and visit June. Her wings especially are unmissable!
You can also see the fantastic pieces her other Team designers have made.
I found this face and thought it looked interesting
so just had a play with it.
Sometimes things go right and sometimes they don't.
I ordered a new scooter and a 4 wheeled pusher with a seat for Freddie. After waiting a couple of weeks the delivery arrived. The first thing he unpacked was a three wheeled pusher. 'I've already got one of those' I told him. Then it turned out he had brought the wrong scooter.
The poor chap was almost grovelling in his apologies. I laughed and said I'm not going to lead off at you. Mistakes happen and my Granddad always used to say 'Worse things happen at sea.'
So he turned his truck around and made the 3 1/2 hour journey back home.
