I got this in my email and it really makes me laugh.
This elderly man and elderly spinster met late in life and really liked each other . After a couple of dates they ended up in bed one night. In the morning the man was lying there thinking, 'If I'd known she was still a virgin I would have been a bit more gentle.'
The lady was thinking' If I'd have known he could still do it I'd have taken my tights off.

Whats happened to summer

Well, have been off on holiday for the last two weeksI went to Torquay and have to say the weather was fine so were really lucky.  On the home front the weather seems to have turned into autumn whilst I wasn't watching. We all seem to be getting into the xmas design spirit, seems to get earlier every year, with this in mind I have designed some xmas crackers that can be used for tags, labels, toppers or table placement cards.  I have jsut uploaded these to craftsuprint so will no doubt be available tomorrow.

Christmas Cracker

I wonder why we associate robins with Christmas, I was doing some weeding just the other day and a little robin joined in, he was so close I could have picked him up, then he was pecking off my shoe. he was really cheeky.
Anyway here's a christmas cracker cup no.245298, bright and cheerful.

Instead of a picture I thiught i'd give you a poem. I wrote this a few years ago when I was trying to learn about this new fangled contraption called a computer.
There's a monster that's come to stay at our house, It can't be all bad as it's brought it's pet mouse,
also a disk with words that i've never heard of,that I'm sure would frighten the worlds greatest nerds off.
It sits on my desk looking at me, with it's one black eye that lights occasionally.
I've made friends with it's mouse, which I stroke with my hand, but it speaks in a language I don't understand.
I never know what it's going to demand next,as it just sounds to me a near gibberish text.
It tells me to 'download' whatever that may mean, don't want to look stupid so I just stare at it's screen.
I'm told it's a genius at communication, but it says I've performed an illegal operation.
Windows you can't see through,bytes without teeth,rams that are'nt goats, it's beyond my belief.
Giga bytes, mega bytes,the net for a chat,I've heard of a 'floppy' ooops, I don't think it's that.
I've heard that this monster will do every task, I've tried all the buttons, it won't do as I ask.
What am I to do, it's not good for my health, my blood pressure's up, I can't think for myself.
It's driving me crazy. I know i'm no mug,I'll just shut it down and pull out it's plug.
Sheila. M.
I still feel the same about it.

Senior moment

One of my senior moments,I forgot to give the number of the last card, Missing you at Christmas
Now here's another joke.
An elderly couple were watching t.v. and the husband as usual had the remote, and kept switching between a fishing programme, and a porn channel. After a while the wife was fed up and said" For goodness sake leave it on the porn channel, you know how to fish."

Christmas arrangements

That was a really nice curry my husband made last night, I don't want anything to eat today. It was a family get together for some of the family, it's got too big now to get them all round the table.Maybe I should hire a hall, for Christmas, No on second thoughts I think I'll go away for Christmas.

Friday, 19 August 2011


One morning while lying in bed a man rolled over to his wife and pinched her bottom and each of her breasts and said" If you firmed up you could get rid of your bra and control pants,", really jarred off by this comment she grabbed his member and said" If you firmed this up we could get rid of the postman,the pool man, the gardener, and your brother"

Why is it every time I go out to do gardening I get bitten, it's ants, I'm sure they wait for me. I can hear them saying "ok boys lunch has arrived. I must look like some big fat sausage on legs or something. I put citronella on today round my ankles, so they have bitten my hand. Nasty little things.

Long week

Its been a lon week this week as I was asked to make order of service cards for my boss, he only wanted 100, but what a nightmare as the card wouldn't print the way I wanted and have wasted so much card, I think its had an impact on the rain forest.  Its all a learning curve and I now know what ot to do next time!!  Anyway, only have a few more weeks at work before I am made redundant, so will have more time to craft, obviously in between job hunting.

So here my latest design for you on Craftsuprint

The Vicar and the drunk

Joke.    A vicar sat down next to a drunk on a park seat, the drunk was reading the newspaper, he was dirty, he had lipstick marks on his face, and smelt of booze. He turned to the vicar and said, "What causes arthritis?. The vicar said, " It's caused by bad living, drinking and getting drunk, and visiting prostitutes, and not having a bath." The drunk continued to look at his paper. The vicar feeling that he had gone too far in his condemnation said" How long have you had arthritis then" The drunk replied, " Oh I haven't got it, but it says here that the pope has it"Here's todays card no.238927_688

I'll Diet Tomorrow

cup. no. 231612_688.
Read on to the next blog for a silly poem, about being 30years old.

Silly Poem

A friend of mine said she was depressed because she was approaching 30. What a laugh my 30th was so long ago it's lost in the mist of time. So I wrote this poem for her

Why be depressed at thirty, you're almost reaching your prime
So just grab life by the balls, go out and have a good time

In another ten years you'll be forty, you're wasting your time if you rue it
Life's just beginning at forty, don't think about doing it , Do It.

Fifty could be tricky if you let it get you down,
So get yourself some red paint and go and paint the town.

Sixty just gets better, you lose your inhibitions
Who cares what size your bum is, you've tried all the sex positions

At seventy, well now's the time, if you want to stay healthy and sane
Get yourself a Toy Boy and do it all again.

Tonight's Joke

Harry is fiddling underneath the bonnet of his car.A tramp walks by and stops, and looks at him."Piston broke" explains Harry. "Ah yes" said the tramp. "So am I"
I managed to get today's card on, it's the next blog down. I don't know what happened the other night, it just wouldn't accept it.. Probably me swearing at it didn't help, I'm not very patient with computers when they get temperamental.. I wrote a poem about a computer once I'll try and find it for another day.

This is Ellie Fanta Claus

Another Christmas card ,I thought it would be difficult to dream up Christmas cards in the middle of summer, but it's not a problem. Probably by Christmas I will be glad to do summer cards. It's like the fashion trade which I used to work in. We modelled summer clothes in winter with lots of goose pimples, and winter clothes in summer "Phew".
Joke......"Grandad" said the little boy,"Can you make a noise like a frog
Grandad....."Yes I suppose i could if i tried. Why do you ask?
Little Boy.....".Cos Granny said we could all go to Disney land when you croak"

Sorry it's been rejected twice, i don't know why, maybe me doing something wrong, I'll try again tomorrow. So No Christmas card.                                      ,

A bit naughty

I saw this in my local magazine and thought it very funny and clever.

Mr Cadbury and Miss Rowntree met on a Double Decker. it was just After Eight. they got off at Quality Street.    He asked her name,"Polo I'm the one with the hole" she said with a Wispa.   " I'm Marathon the one with the nuts" he replied.    He touched her Cream Eggs, which was a Kinder Surprise for her.
Then he slipped his hand into her Snickers, which made her Ripple.    He fondled her Jelly Babies and she rubbed his Tic Tacs.   Soon they were Heart Throbs.  It was a Fab moment when she screamed in Turkish Delight.   But three days later his Sherbet Dib Dab started to itch. Turns out Miss Rowntree had been with Bertie Bassett and he had Allsorts.


I know its early but for those of you that start the christmas thing early I have designed some snowmen as clipart and they should be available on craftsuprint today.  Next week I will add a free snowman here on this blog so don't forget to pop back

Another hot day

Well all I can say is if Sheila didn't do much yesterday cause of the heat, that was 100 % more than I did, although did go for a walk arounf Nymans gardens which is a lovely place for those of you that like gardening and flowers, or just nice paces to walk.  They have a nice tearoom their and I am afraid to say the diet hit a low when I indulged in a cream tea.  Oops.  Today I have for you some scrapbook pages that I am just uploading on to Craftsuprint (although having trouble at the moment)

Husband to Wife... Darling shall we change positions tonight.

Free silver Butterfly

Though you might like this butterfly I created, it is a png file so you will need a graphics program to use it.  Have fun crafting

The Dentist

Just looked at my calendar, I have a dentist appointment next week, so I made up this poem.

Sorry I can't come to dinner tonight, I went to the dentist today,
There was plenty of action and many extractions, and all I can do is pray.
That my dentures so new,will allow me to chew,
Won't spit when I talk, or snap at my fork
Won't dribble when I eat, or fall out when I speak.
They do as they please, I dread a cough or a sneeze.
I'm losing my sanity, I'm near on my knees
I swear I've got  Tauretts disease.
So I won't come to dine, till my teeth toe the line
I'd feel such a pratt, if they ended up in your lap,

A Xmas card

I know its early and summer has just started, but I see many crafters are already into Xmas cards so here one I have just uploaded tonight.  Hope you like it ( cup222620_688).
I was thinking that you might like a christmas verse for you cards, so here's one I used last year.

Christmas is a special time
for getting together, not just on-line
So let's rejoice and celebrate
toast our friends and eat Xmas cake


I feel as though I've just had a tour of Australia, we picked my son and his wife up from the airport this morning. They have been holidaying over there for 5 months, so they have been telling me about all their adventures. Sounded wonderful. I'll have to do some Kangaroo cards.
" How dare you break wind in front of my wife" said the host to the dinner guest
"I'm sorry" said the guest,"I didn't know it was her turn.

Does anyone have any ideas to stop the squirrels eating all the birds nuts. Ive tried running out and shouting, barking like a dog, I'm sure the neighbours think i'm nuts. Ive also tried putting grease on the pole it;s funny to see them slide down but they still manage to get to the nuts. They frighten away the birds and spend ages just eating.
My husband just told me this joke.
A wife came back from the doctors and said" The doctor said that I had breasts of a young girl"
Husband.  What did he say about your 60 year old arse.
Wife. Oh he never mentioned you.

I had to go to the hospital today with my husband for knee x-rays, as an old para-trooper his knees need a bit of repair. While I waited I made up this poem for people of a certain age and over, whatever that is.

 Age is just a number you know, Whatever all the records may show
Your tits may have dropped, and your belly popped
But heh what's new, they haven't a clue,
Just get up and show them what you can do.
You're toothless, it's vile, you're frightened to smile
But that's no excuse, to be a recluse
Get up and go, play fast and loose.
Your wrinkles are showing, your legs are bowing
Your feet are flat and your bum is fat.
But your health is good , you don't scoff much pud.
You eat all your fruit and veggies,
Who cares what your told, Of course you're not old
You're just a bit frayed round the edges

Lazy Sunday

That's it I've done absolutely nothing very much today except design another greeting card, this time for a golden wedding,   ahhh   how romantic. Talking of romance I've just watched my most favourite film of all time. GHOST with Patrick Swazey, and Demi Moore, and the hilarious Whoopee Goldberg. It is a love story with a difference, and even though I've seen it so many times, I still cry.
Here's the Golden  Wedding Anniversary card. No. 219024

Sunday might be wet

Well, Sunday was wet but this always gives us the opportunity to craft without feeling guilty that we should be outside making the most of the good weather, or even gardening.  So today I've spent the day (well some of it) drawing with my daughter and two granddaughters which is always fun as they are so creative.  I have just uploaded a fun Xmas design for baby's first Xmas (drawing was done by my daughter Cleo). This is a decoupage card and should be available on by Monday morning
