New Challenge at Tag Tuesday and T Day

Hello All who call in at Jumbled Crafts and thank you for your visit.

 If  you are here for T Day at Elizabeth and Bluebeards it is after the Tag Tuesday part of the post. Tuesday is such a busy day here on my blog. I am sure both blogs will be happy to have people join in at both places

There is a new challenge starting today at Tag Tuesday and I am the one to choose the theme this time

The theme is 'My Favourite Colour Combinations' so thinking caps on and I hope you enjoy joining us. You can choose any colours you like and as many colours as you like in the combination

There is a prize this time and the winner will be drawn randomly from the people who make a tag for this challenge.  It is open to anyone anywhere who joins this time

      This is the prize             

I knitted the owl and he is only 6 inches tall so won't take up a lot of space. 

 There are a few other things I am adding to the prize, including at least one of my tags made for this challenge.

These are the tags I made so far



Purple and yellow go so well together and appear in many flowers. I do love this mix of colours in pansies. The tag has a pocket at the bottom to hold the extras


The inspiration for this digital tag was the wonderful cornflower with the beautiful blue and green


I am looking forward to seeing your tags and visiting your blogs as well


Happy T Day if you have arrived here from Elizabeth and Bluebeard's drinks related post. Here you can join in every Tuesday and all are welcome

We decided to go for an extra walk one evening as we hadn't walked far because of the rain during the day. On the way we decided we would walk even further and go for a pizza at the Pavilion along the North Beach end. We live at the South beach end of town so it is a bit of a trek through town or around the harbour.


Forgot to take a photographs when the pizza arrived so here it is almost demolished. We both had Lime and Soda to drink with lots of ice and a stirrer that is something I haven't had before in a cold drink.


We walked back a different way and passed the Spa . For some unknown reason there were lots of vintage cars parked outside the Spa. People were arriving for the show in the theatre and appearing was the 'Pasadena Roof Orchestra' from way back when. There is another large place for shows and events in the Spa  and it is well worth a visit as it is so beautiful. -pictures if you follow the link I added.

Have a Great Day

Inchie and Journal Page

Hi All and a happy start to the week to you. Thank you for your visit today.

At Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is Camel

 This brought to mind a very scary ride for me when I went quite a long way on a camel in the Canaries. My camel was a nice quiet chap but the one behind kept pushing me in the back and as it was a string of camels, with only one man leading them in the front, I just had to put up with it all the way. Never again have I been on a camel though Vic has.

At Art Journal Journey the theme this month was chosen by Elizabeth and her beautiful cat Bluebeard. They chose the theme Summertime Love and it is wonderful to see all the different ideas that people have thought of. This is my last page I have made for this challenge so thank you Elizabeth for all the inspiration and your comments


A digital page from me today with a face and flowers I made years ago but the page was made for this challenge.

Just a few more hours to join us for 'Cake' at Tag Tuesday but a new challenge there tomorrow and I hope you will come back for that and see what is on offer.??

Another week at Try it on Tuesday where the theme is Let it Shine so we would love you to join us there as well.

Have a great day everyone

Love Chrissie xx

Journal Page and photographs

Hello Everyone and Happy Weekend to you. Hope it goes well and thank you for your visit.


At Art Journal Journey the theme this month was chosen by Elizabeth and her beautiful cat Bluebeard. They chose the theme Summertime Love and it is wonderful to see all the different ideas that people have thought of.


We have friends who have a caravan and go here and there every other week from Spring until Autumn. I can't imagine where they find to go that is better than where we live but it is certainly the things they love



 We went for an evening walk to the harbour and the fishing boats were in. This is a something we don't see often as they are usually out at sea. The building on the end of the pier is a fish factory and now, they are building a fish laboratory and research centre for the industry, on the other side of the harbour



This is the main road and our estate is behind the hedge on the right though we live farther back from there. On the path side behind the trees is avery beautiful golf course with lots of wild life and plants.
Suddenly the road became very busy and traffic came almost to a halt. We kept on walking and passed most of the traffic until we came to th e culprit


A gypsy caravan that was going very slowly even though it had two horses. Eventually it pulled off the road into a field and the traffic was able to go on its way safely. The building on the right is a very new small hotel that seems to be full most of the time.

Have a great day 

Love Chrissie xx

Tag, Journal page and photographs

Hello Everyone. This week is racing ahead and my days seem to have been full of the great outdoors this week. Done lots of gardening, walking along the seafront and playing bowls in the back garden. The bowls is a fun idea we started last year. We play with anything that is round and the games are just Vic and Me. It is all very competitive but also lots of fun. Looks like the game will be called off today because it is raining. :(

At Art Journal Journey the theme this month was chosen by Elizabeth and her beautiful cat Bluebeard. They chose the theme Summertime Love and it is wonderful to see all the different ideas that people have thought of.


I used a mop up page with shimmer paint for the background then added the wonderful VW van image. Still a few of those around and I just love to see them, all lovingly restored and appearing at outdoor shows.

Go Tag Thursday has Flags/ Bunting as the theme for this week. 


The little flags and the white braid were leftover pieces that I couldn't bear to throw away. Valerie sent me the bigger pieces with other treasures years ago and I have made so many things from the wonderful package. The background is splodges of various paints and the balloons were cut from a magazine

 These naughty boys went missing for a whole night and a day and my daughter was very worried. They came home, ate a hearty meal then curled up and went to sleep for hours and hours. Felix is on the left and Willow on the right--the twin of Willow, Oscar is quiet and more of a house cat. Felix was also a twin but his brother died as few years ago.


Here's Oscar never far away from daughter Linda except when she is at work. She knitted this P.J case and he was testing it.

Have a great day
