Becca Feakin

Hello Everyone 
Thank you for popping by. I am grateful that you drop in and I do value your feedback.
Thank you for your lovely comments on my previous post.
Mrs Duck and Michele I have a slight confession to make! The formula I used was for beer and just substituted Guinness. My husband is no Alchemist (there must be a joke somewhere there Ang!) and so he didn't notice that it wasn't specifically for Guinness. I'm sure you can substitute Carlsberg, probably the best lager in the world.
Thank you Margaret corgi owner for the blog address.
GailT Oooh! I'm sorry it sounded complcated but it was literally manipulating a couple of rectangles in Serif 

I had a fabulous time in Beverley and would certainly recommend the place we stayed at. Trip Advisor will get some feed back. Not sure if I can advertise the place on here. We had fun in Scarborough where we all behaved like kids and played the machines in the 2p Arcade - that took us back a bit! Some great meals out and some chill time. I've got a new addiction. Instead of taking a puzzle book I bought a colouring in book for adults. I did ask for an adult colouring in book in a certain retail chain We both laughed at the picture we had in our heads at my description. She said they were becoming really popular. I took my daughter's old colouring pencils (they're at least 20 years old) and had a whale of a time! What was great was they are single sided and therefore can be coloured with your alcohol markers

Today's card is an old favourite of mine and have been asked for it in several colour combinations and with more flowers on the left hand edge. Simple and easy
Cream card blank
Cream and maroon card PMD and Llidl

Gold bling from Mei Flowers

Have a great couple of days and take care. For those feeling unwell or in  pain I hope things improve. See you Thursday xx


  1. Hi Karen, think it was me being a bit of a thickie - we are off to Scarborough for the BH weekend - we try and go at least once a year (if we are lucky maybe twice)! for a weekend as we love walking there and only been to Beverley once en-route home but loved it too - anyway sorry back to the card which is gorgeous and can see why it is requested in different colour combos xx Adult colouring books!!! the mind boggles!!! 😉xx GailT xx

  2. Hi Karen,
    what a very super card.
    Great design, and wonderful colour.
    I have a few Serif items, but I can;t seem to get on with them, especially as I have a iMac computer, and have to access window things with my virtual box.
    The memory on the virtual box isn't that good either, at storing stuff.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. Karen, so glad you had a lovely time. Your card is a lovely combination of a great design and colour combo. Hazel x

  6. Great card-very classy looking. Glad you had a nice weekend away.

    We have the penny slot machines on Southport pier-they're great fun! Especially when our American relatives come over-they love them.


  7. Good morning Karen glad you enjoyed your break. Colouring zentangle pictures is a new favourite with my ladies so nothing wrong with adult colouring books on my eyes!! Super card for quick cards. I'm hoping my GC is going to be ok today. I had trouble with a SW embossing folder yesterday and when it eventually went through there was a horrible noise and something is washing around inside!But it seemed to work ok afterwards so I'm hoping it remains so. Best wishes Jackie x

  8. Hi Karen,
    Your card is lovely, and so adaptable, and fairly straightforward. One for my "go to" folder.

  9. Hi Karen
    Love Becca Feekens stuff, boy that gal can tie a bow!
    Love your card. Classy and elegant.
    Adult colouring books eh? Coming to a craft channel after 9pm I guess, along with flesh toned Promarkers lol!
    Best wishes.
