The little words books/albums are More than Words key chain books from "Colour my World" (again I just googled!). These are about 1 1/2 inches high. They come in a set of about four. You get appropriate words for each theme - i.e. Birthday comes with PARTY, CAKE, FUN and WISH (I think!). I also have Wedding which has BRIDE, GROOM, AMOUR, CHURCH and may be I(heart)YOU. Can't really remember (I'm at work you see!). I do have another set with the words WISH, LOVE, HUGS and something else. Oooh the memory is not as good as it used to be. Anyway the Craft Barn sells them too.
Again I trace round the letters onto chipboard (mountboard is too thick to cut so intricately!).
I then cover them with paper and embellish as appropriate!
Hope that helps............

This is a little mini word book I have made for my hairdresser/BSL buddy!!!
The paper is from the Pocket of Posies pad from K & Co.
This next one is for a colleague at work who has just become a grandma. I have known Lesley for about 36 years!! The papers are called Bohemia (really old!). I think they are from My Minds Eye but am not 100% sure.

I gave it to her today and she liked it very much. I think it is cute!
Then I found the other "distressed" Tilda and made a card. I can't remember the pad the paper came from - It's either, Bailey or Roam from K & Co. Must make more notes before I come down!!!

Thanks very much Linda. Can't wait to use them. I now have five - I also have Aged Mahogany. Scrummy!!!
The postman arrived today and brought me a parcel from Lesley. This is really lovely. The words on the top of the box are on the side of the mug too.
I have sooo much "angel" stuff in the cabin now I think it will have to have "Angel" in the name of it now........ Thank you very much Lesley. Loved the doodles on the jiffy bag too.
AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT !
I have joined a "valentine" swap on the Lotstodo forum. Our remit was not to use any red, any hearts or the word love. I think I managed it.

Went to see Milla this morning and she gave me my birthday pressie which she picked. She gave me a clue a few weeks ago saying "it is something I would use every day but not Friday!" I asked her if it was because I didn't work on Fridays. She said it was. Then going by my track record of my 25 pressies I said "a bus pass"!! NOOOO she cried. then would tell me any more. This is what I got:
How cool is this......... It's made by Red Herring. Same colours as my bag from Freda.
Anyway a change now - I have been playing with colouring in my magnolia stamps with distress inks.
Thanks for stopping by. Going up in the cabin now to finish of some challenges. Will blog them tomorrow.
Love Burnice x

I would recommend it to anyone - can you tell we enjoyed it!!!
Been playing in the cabin today - doing some colouring in with distress inks instead of copics. Not too bad for a first attempt. Will show you tomorrow. Very tired - just got in from a meal with my stitch club girls. Went for a Thai. Took some pics of that too but on my other camera.
Off to bed now.
Thanks for stopping by.

I am soooooooooo excited. We can go to The Albert Hall. Right now Burn, calm down. I am nearly ready and then we will be off.
Have to go to a shop in Brighton first to change a top (need a bigger size). The one I bought makes my boobs look like they belong to Jordan!!! Then pop into the office to drop off a birthday card and then walk up Queens Road to the station. Oooooooh can you tell I'm excited.
I will be back tomorrow with my tale. No doubt something will go wrong so Sue watch this space!!!
Off to have a shower now.

Isn't it cute. Ron said he liked his "suit"! I think the paper is from the K & Co winter wonderland pad. The image is a Rachelle Ann Miller stamp and coloured with copics.
I booked two places for the Artsycrafts weekend in May. I am going to the first one 8/9 May. Going up on the 7th. Really excited. I have made a list of all the places I am going to and all the things I am doing before that weekend, ticking them off and before I know where I am it'll be 7 May. I am going with my crafty work colleague, Caroline. I think she is just as excited as me. Won't be long - only four months ................
Right a confession now - I expect I have just upset me new found artsy friend, Linda. I said I would be going on the 2nd weekend at the end of May but I'm sorry Linda, Caroline couldn't make that weekend. Hope you're not too angry.
Watching survivors on the tele - isn't bloomin' rubbish. OH thinks it's fab. I think it's boring. There is not one single bit of crafting in it!
Thanks for stopping by.
Love Burn x

Isn't that brill. It's by "Red Herring". Just loving the necklace. She gave me that too. I had some lovely card from my forum buddies. I had some money from my bezzy bezzy mate. Apparently I still have some goodies to come from peeps who couldn't get to me and stuff that's in the Royal Mail system. Think this birthday may last a while eh!
Right off to watch Corrie now.
Keep safe folks

When we left the pub we were going to get a cab (not really sure if it would have taken us all the way home) but as we were going down the road a bus came along that was going along the seafront. We decided to jump on it, get off at Rottingdean and then walk from their to home. Seemed like a good idea at the time. We got off the bus at 18.40 and got home at 19.51. I was nearly crying my legs were sooooo sore and my knees were sooooo cold. I did have tights, tracky bottoms, two pairs of socks, leg warmers, walking boots, scarf, gloves and me big quilty coat. Ron was carrying my flowers!!!! Got up this morning and my hips hurt sooo much!!!! Well it did seem like a good idea at the time !
Didn't get to the Craft Barn to see Kim Piggott cos it snowed quite a bit last night. Went up into the cabin for about 4 hours and came down in a blizzard!!!
Right gotta go, watching "Do you think you can dance" or whatever it's called.
Thanks for stopping by.

I decided to make use of my time by doing these "moos". They are for a swap on Lotstodo forum. The theme was "green" so I recycled a piece of card that was backing some attendance notes at work, used the clock images that I stamped out at the PaperArtsy weekend and didn't use, and sprayed with lots of "firework" inks that I bought from a friend. Also I have glued on some clock parts that I bought from paperartsy! Is that recycled enough !!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought I would just show you the view I have from my cabin. It's not the front view it's the side view. The trees are in the gardens of the two houses next door (if that makes sense!) The big fir tree top right is a massive tree that is in the garden behind us. Just hope it never gets blown down cos it will land on me cabin !!!!!

Went along the shop at 8.00 cos we only had a little milk and the shelves were empty but for a two pinta organic milk so I had to get that. Not a loaf of bread in sight.
There were loads of cars parked on the pavement down the road where they were abandoned last night and quite a few on the corner.
Ron has just taken this pic of me! Not very flattering but it is snowing and my dad always said "to keep warm and dry you have to look a prat!" So far be it from me to disappoint!
The statue we call Mary - bet she is bloomin' freezing, bless her!
Was going up in the cabin but can't be bothered - he he he!
We have just realised that we don't have the heating on!!!!! Three cheers for cavity wall installation!
Right off to look for a board book now...........
Sunday, 3 January 2010
The inspiration for this easel card is from a christmas card I got from a Tanda forum buddy, Sue Law.
I have made a couple of them, can't stop!!! Trouble is my photo taking skills are sorely lacking at the moment. My photo's are coming out quite blurred. I shall try again with the other cards.
