I believe I can Fly

There is a super new challenge them starting today over at Try it on Tuesdays
called ....'I believe I can Fly'.

There are some super examples from the team so please pop over to take a look.

My journal page began with background water colour washes, a little washi tape , stencils and a clump of TH  Wild flower images.
Finnabair images completed the look I was aiming for after sticking down some fussy cut butterflies.

I did have a little play with the page in my digital program, by doing this I can print it out as a digital card for future use in any size I choose.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, the comments you leave for me are always appreciated.

Afternoon tea

I realy started off this journal page with
 in mind , where Mary is hosting  the current theme of ....Maps.

It seemed to take a life of its own with the lady propping up the post box ,
she was ready to take  her afternoon tea.
The pair on the telegraph pole stand no chance of being served a cuppa up there.

This brings me to   T   stands for Tuesday over at
 Here is my photo for today to tempt you all with,,,

a very English Afternoon tea.
My OH and I went in to have a sandwich and ended up ordering this tasty stack of delights.
Yes, some sandwiches, currant scones with butter, strawberry jam and clotted cream.
Last but not lease some delicious looking cakes.
Now the cakes proved a step to far, but hey,  they  weren't left behind.

Carefully wrapped in a napkin, we took them home to eat  with a cup of Chai
later that evening.

Thank you for visiting with me today, I have enjoyed your company.

Winnie the Pooh visits London for AJJ

In the UK we  have been celebrating our Queens 90th Birthday, 
many interesting pieces could be found in our newspapers.
The additional pieces I have added to my base map of London were in the Daily Telegraph,.
It refers to the fact that Winnie the Pooh [A.A. Milne]
 was also celebrating  his  90th Birthday this year.
Can you just imagine Pooh reading this to the Queen.
I can, but I do have a vivid imagination.
This is the poem that was with the article.......

.A hum for a Queen.

The Queen is in her palace, as Queens often do.
Doing  all those busy things , that busy Queens do.
But the Queen could never know, as you and I do.
That doing nothing much can be the BEST thing to do.
So from a forest far away, for your special day.
We're sending you some quiet and a little time to play.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, I hope this page for
where this months theme is maps,
has made you smile and remember this book.

Black bird

A digital collage page for this weeks word  at the 

which is............. Blackbird.
I took a  trip down memory lane when I was assembling this page.

Remembering  when I was young and  getting your photo taken was quite an event.
Not many folk could afford a camera.
Parents would say things like, stand very still,
 '''smile for the camera'' or  ''smile for the birdie''
and we did just that.
The results were usually cheesy,  stiff looking grins
 and we sometimes  looked like a poker was stuck up our backs.
Photos were black and white,  how times have changed.

Thank you for stopping by to see what I have been making, I always appreciate
 the comments you leave for me.

A card I made for my OH last month for his birthday.
He was a keen cyclist and it is one of the sports my family enjoy viewing on TV.
We used  to take our cycles to France when the boys were young- teenagers  ,[ they both still cycle] taken apart they  all fitted inside the caravan. Destination reached the bikes were re- assembled.
 We  have some great memories, seeing the Tour de France routes, pedalling through vineyards, even  visiting some beautiful Chateau  on the bikes.

Anyway back to the card, lots of layers as you can see,  a Stampendous image
and Vintage Photo distress ink for added shading.

There is still another week for you to enter the current challenge at Try it on Tuesdays
there the theme is  'For Him'.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today. I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.
