Halloween at TMR

Good morning everyone,
we are celebrating Halloween over at The Male Room.

So I just had to use my favourite WMS stamps. I want simple but with a hint of fun.
I loved the little phrase so I used it as the theme for my composition.
Please remember to visit our DT ladies blogs and leave a comment.

Well I better get back to finishing this baby blanket and also my very first quilt project. Plus I promised my husband I'd have a craft clearout :-( 

Back soon with more crafty shares

Leaves in The Male Room

Hello again,
We are having a litttle bit of leaf fall over at The Male Room

Please pop over and visit our DT blogs and leave a comment, it's always appreciated.
Now for my take on this challenge:
A nice simple and clean masculine card
I wanted a clean unfussy card for a very logical no fuss friend and I think I have achieved it.
The paper are Tattered Lace downloads and the stamp is from Stampin Up.

Back to xmas place-name name filling and baby blanket crocheting.

Well it's not finished yet but I thought I'd give you a quick peek

It's coming along quite nicely and I shall reveal all hopefully the end of next week.
I hope that has engaged your interest.

Space and Beyond

Hello, we have a great little challenge for you over at The Male Room . For the next couple of weeks  the theme;

STAR TREK (or any other space series)

Why Star Trek? Well, it's because I'm a huge science-fiction fan and because the franchise is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year. I started watching the show as a kid in the 60s and I love it. I've just seen the latest Star Trek movie by JJ Abrams and highly recommend it. And because many guys really like sci-fi programmes.

You don't have to stick to Star Trek inspired ideas - and there are thousands from the various TV shows and movies - you can base your space series (science fiction) project on any series from Star Wars, Stingray, Dr Who, Twilight Zone, Stargate, Falling Skies, Six Million Dollar Man, Superman, Quantum Leap, Arrow - and this list goes on!! If your inspiration is not immediately clear, do tell us what show you've picked.

My choice is the best space series to have ever exist. And making cards for small people well.....
Soup Dragon, from the Clangers, the greatest souper hero ever
yeah yeah terrible sense of humour.....can't help it 

I have to confess that I am a big trekie at heart but I have the Clangers saved on my digi box. I'm hoping to crochet a clanger one day when I've got my other projects finished. 

Well, I have a baby blanket to finish (my neighbours will be 1st time grandparents next month).
I also have a couple of little owls that need stuffing so I can send them off into the geocahing world.

Please remember to leave comments on the design teams blogs

Fab'n'Funky in the great Outdoors

A very good morning to all,

I am hostess this week over at Fab'n'Funky challebges and I have a wonderful challenge for you.

Go Outside
 Yes, we want you to go outside and let nature inspire you creation
I have created a collage of my travel photos to help get you going.
(the waterfall shot was me attempting to locate a geocache to no avail, so I settled for a photo)
I hope it gives you some ideas

Our lovely sponsor this week is 
Lacy sunshine 

The prize is 3 digi images  

I had millions of ideas but nothing seemed right, then I remembered
I have several reading-mad friends and so I decided to make one of them a bookmark.
I've kept it simple, the book should always be more than the mark. She loves nature and mythical creatures so hopefully this will be a real hit.

Please remember to stop by all our lovely ladies blogs and leave them some love.

Scottish Highlands

Hello from Scotland,
This is the beautiful Glen Affric, a peaceful and majestic landscape. It is a stones throw from the village of Cannich (our favourite place to retreat to). My trendy walking poles are a godsend, no way I'd have made it to this spot without them. Further down the glen is a spot called Kite Rock, where we were fortunate enough to see the golden eagles that were nesting over the hills. I wasn't able to get a good enough photo, I think I may have to consider a bigger lens.
