Tag Tuesday and reminder for TIOT

Hi All who drop in at Jumbled Crafts and thank you for your visit. Always great to see what people think of my makes and for me to get to know you a little better along the way.


At Tag Tuesday this week we have Wendy choosing the new theme. She has chosen Birds/ Nests and that is quite the thing for this time of year in the UK. Birds are gathering bits of twig and moss near us and the crows have already made huge nests in the high trees on the main road




For my background I used one of Astrid's stunning freebie tags-a big thank you Astrid for your kindness. One side is embossed and then I added two birds that I cut out from a picture. Hope you will join us during the next two weeks with your take on the theme.
Thank you to all who joined in with the last challenge and your amazing tags

A reminder that you still have another week to join us at Try it on Tuesday for the Lady in Red challenge. Also today the Top 5 for the Time for Tea Challenge will be posted so I hope you are among those.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

T is for Treats

Hi All. Second post for me today as this one is for T day at Elizabeth's where we all gather on Tuesday to say hello with a drinks related post.

 Happy T Day to all who drop by from Elizabeth's T Party and to anyone else who calls in.

This week we have been out for more snacks and meals than we have done for years. One excuse is that the sun shone for a couple of days and another is that it was our 27th wedding anniversary so it was all worth celebrating with treats.

Here we are getting married in Jamaica

Here we are with our best man and bridesmaid who stood in at the last minute

 We went for a Chinese meal on out anniversary and the drink was Lime and Lemonade



Eating and drinking again overlooking the sea at Jeromes. It was freezing cold outside so good to be undercover though we usually sit outside when we go to Jeromes for coffee.

Love Chrissie xx

Journal Page and Inchie

Happy New Week All and thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts along the way.

At Art Journal Journey we have dear Yvonne taking us Out and About this month.


Our garden is full of fairies though they don't come out too often and you need to be very quiet when they do or they fly away.

I painted the background with acrylics then drew around the shapes with white pen. The fairies I drew digitally about 15 years ago when I bought a 'How to draw fairies' book. Not sure I ever got them right but they were useful to use for PSP tutorials when it was tabu to use anything copyright at all without permission.

Every Inchie Monday has Woodpecker as the theme this week

It does look a bit like my heron did last week expect for the angle and a bit of brown.

Enjoy your day. 

Love Chrissie xx

Card and photographs

Hello Everybody who calls in and thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts. Looks like a dull grey weekend but with 3 rugby matches today I am sure I won't even notice the weather.

You still have time to join us at Tag Tuesday and Try it on Tuesday so hope you will pop over and see what the themes are.

At Frilly and Funkie the theme this is 'you've-got-to-know-when-to-fold-em'.



I did a side fold card. I made the image from a few flower pictures and printed them out in different sizes. I also attached a little card as I never know where to write the greetings on this sort of card.

Here are a few photographs of Driffield station that has made a real show of Spring flowers









The birds nest in the rafters above the platform and someone has to clean up their droppings.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx
