Wednesday already...!

Hello friends

It's a good job I'm an early riser because the two new kittens certainly wake up early!
Bella is in shock, she likes a lay in but suddenly I'm taking her out for a walk at 7am.
This is Camer Park, not far from where I live - 40 acres of open space.
Dumbledore also happens to live there (aka Michael Gambon)!

Back to today's craft project.
A decorated heart - I like doing these!
The papers are Cosmo Cricket - Evangeline.
A slightly different shape heart to the ones we used in the Charity Kit,
although I do still have some of those blank hearts available in the shop -
details are here.
I teamed together Imperial Gold dies - Gold Circles One,
Gold Labels Four, Les Papillion TwoCarnation Creations and Foliage.
Yes a butterfly - they've been missing recently!

I've also been having a bit of a sort out and more 'Pre-Loved' dies have been added
to the website, this is always ongoing (bit like housework!)
so worth checking back now and again.

Take care friends - enjoy your day.

Good morning Christine, there's nothing like an early morning walk, everything seems so much more quieter and serene, I'm sure Bella enjoys it. Your decorated Heart is lovely, I certainly enjoyed making my Charity one and it turned out to be one of my nicest pieces of craftwork. Have a lovely day.

The heart is very pretty-love the flower & butterfly. Bella looks like she's ready to run through the park. Nice to know where Dumbledore lives.

Really pretty Christine and of course I love the butterfly touch.
I´m out with my dog, Gracie, at 7 in the morning at the moment. It´s too hot for her later on. It´s lovely walking then-it´s so quiet and peaceful.
Love Val in Spain x

Hi Christine, love the colours and the heart shape - very usual. Poor Bella, bet she doesn't know what has hit her. But who could resist a walk in Camer Park at 7 am on a beautiful morning.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Christine. I am playing catch up so have to say thank you for the reminder yesterday about using other materials. I love using felt, it gives a great effect doesn't it. Your brooch is so pretty : )
Glad to hear that all is calm on the pet front, Bella looks like she is really a real computer buff : )
What a lovely start to your day, that view is beautiful. Love the heart, the colours are lovely and it's good to see a butterfly : )
Have a good day. Take care.

Good morning Christine, sorry I didn't comment yesterday - I've picked up a tummy bug from work - yuck! The kittens look so adorable. I have used felt many times but do struggle to get it to cut cleanly. The metal shim might help.
Love the heart today. I have had a lot of positive comments about my charity kit heart so I am thinking that these different shaped hearts would make great gifts.
Enjoy your day

Morning Christine,
Love your heart, and the photo of Bella. Enjoyed had many walks around Camer Park when had our two dogs, and then to finish it off with a cup of tea and a bacon bap from the little cafe. Happy memories.
Have a good day.

Hi Christine,
I love the heart today,the colours are really nice.
I am sure Bella would love her walk at any time, she always looks happy.
I hope you have a good day. Take care. x.

Good 'early' morning Christine,
I am totally understanding your problem today Bella & Milo still wake at 5.15 every morning without fail! I like a fool was getting up to feed them, as I thought they were jumping on my head and meowing because they were hungry, but after chatting to the vet he has assured me it's because it's light and they are small so going 8 hours without food is quite a long time, so I still get up and feed them
One the joys of being a cat ownerL
Crafty hugs to all of you today,
Huge snuggles,
Sandra xxx

These look beautiful, both Bella and your tag, xxxx

Morning Christine, boy I'm not surprised that Bella is wondering why she is walking at 7 am. Still, it would be cooler then, if the day is going to warm up. We've had 4 lovely days in a row, but it's dull here today. Off to look at your pre loved dies now.

Morning again Christine, just a quick line to say that my new dies arrived today and a big thank you for the free gift. Cheered me up no end.
Thanks again

Maggie said...

Hello Christine. What a great place to walk even at 7am - not a time of day I see usually but it's a lot better at this time of year! Love the heart, flower and butterfly. xxMargaretxx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Christine,
7 am ?? Middle of the night..... no wonder Bella is in shock. But she seems to be wide awake and ready for that beautiful park.
Love the heart, it's lovely.
I bet the kittens keep all of you on the go (apart from when they're asleep).
Hugs, Rose

Beautifully decorated heart! The colours are lovely and I love this butterfly set, it's the one I use the most. I'm not 'owned' by a dog, but I do enjoy an early morning walk - it's peaceful and the air is so fresh.

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Christine, I'm also an early riser, thanks to my cat, Lizzie, she wears a wrist watch and knows when it's 5.30 am and even on a weekend too !! My hubby is at work for 6.30 am and I love the mornings when no-one is about and the birds are singing, it is 'my' time. Loving the piccie of Bella's 'eye view' and her collar is very pretty.
The decorated heart is beautiful.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Jacquie said...

Hi Christine,

Love the heart, looks vintage which I love. Poor Bella, bet she likes her lay in of a morning, hopefully she is coping with the new arrivals still?

Love & Hugs
