A Very quick post

Hello Blog friends and followers.  Thank you so much for calling by.  I been missing so many times of late.  I hope things settle down and I get back some ME time soon.
We had a very busy day yesterday, another day of not having time to change my mind.
If possible we intend to have a quite weekend .. well quite as apposed to what has been going on lately. 
The boys will be along after Football Training.  Our house is on the way to their house from the Football Ground.  They come in, one goes in the shower the other in the bath then it`s Bacon Rolls all round. I have never seen bacon disappear so quickly.  Good job there is always plenty in the fridge.  The other thing is Rolls man! oh! man! those boys can eat. 
It`s a beautiful day today, very cold, the sky is blue and the sun is shining brightly.  At least they can go exploring, the only thing is that means dirty, muddy wellies to deal with.
Here is my offering for today:-

Base card is a cut off from a project approx the same as a DL
Backing paper left over bits from another project ... printed from a  Rob Adams CD
Navy card from my Bit Box 
The Rose is the only decent image I got while experimenting!!!
I bought a stamp set for multi layering Roses. Sorry I cant remember the name of the Company.  I have cut the name off the top of the stamp sheet to get it in the A5 storage packet  
I experimented but just could not get the hang of using them. Even tried to follow their Tutorial on YouTube without much success.  
I will stick to my SU Stippled Blossom Set in future.
Sentiment from CE Stamp set.  I have just noticed there is a little "flaw" in the "T"
Mmmmm!!! do I send them back or do I just ink in the missing bit with pen???
That`s me for today the boys will be here soon better get things started
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blogger, sorry I have been missing.  It has been rather hectic here on The Ranch since last Saturday.  Been so much coming and going I have not had time to draw breath let alone spend time on the computer. 
We have had a week of wonderful weather which has been good for getting washing dried and ironed  ... all on the same day.
"Oldie for Friday" was started by Erika over at:-
Its a chance to show off some of your old work.  It does not have to be cards, anything Crafty you have made in the past is what is wanted.
Here is mine for today:-

A New Home Card
Simple, simple, simple!!!
Backing Papers from Roberts Adams Gingham, Polka Dot & Check CD. 
A very old CD I have used it so much it`s a wonder it is not worn out.
The Hinge and Brackets are very old Dies from Tim Holtz
That`s it for today 
Thank you for your visit, I really appreciate it and all your lovely comments
Till next time

"Baby Girl Card"

Hello Blog friends followers and poppers by.  Welcome to my little corner of the wonderful world of Blogging.  If you have landed here because you pressed a wrong button along the way, please stay a while.  I often do that and find myself in a place full of fantastic inspiration and ideas. 
I hope I can do the same for you. 
I do go missing from time to time due to "things" going on around me.  Always something going on here at The Ranch ... NO!! I don`t live on a farm, I do live surrounded by them.  The expression came from the our two Grandsons.  Our house is built in the corner of what was a field.  We have Field hedges and Ranch Style Fencing round the property so they decided to call it The Ranch.  My name for the place is "Wits End" that`s how I feel some days!!!
I have taken the advice from a lot of the comments you made and have sent back the offending Stamp to Creative Expressions. Your right you pay for something (not cheap) it should be perfect.
OK! here is my offering for today:-

White Base Card
Pink Card from a Lidl Card Pack
White card
Image from Joanna Sheen baby Love CD
Congratulations a "very old" Clarity Stamp
The customer asked for very simple and was delighted.

That`s it from me for today
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
