NEW HOME

Morning Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

My youngest daughter and her partner moved into their new home just before Christmas and this is the card I made for them.




The image is  Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Fairy Garden House coloured with copics and the backing paper is an old LOTV pad "Romance & Roses" (I love this paper).  The sentiment comes in one piece, but I've stamped them separately onto small stitched rectangles.

I would like to thank Mervi and Jules for becoming my newest followers. I hope they enjoy seeing my makes.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

AYLI DT - ANYTHING GOES


Good Morning Everyone,

After our Christmas break it's time for a new challenge at As You Like It and the theme for this fortnight is nice and easy as it's Anything Goes.




For my DT card I am using one made just before Christmas.  It was a request from my daughter for one of her friends and I've used a LOTV image coloured with copics and paper from First Edition It's a Girl.  I do love making baby girl cards as you can make them really pretty and pink.  I've added cheesecloth, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon and a little heart shaped button die.  The oval die is a Sizzix Tim Holtz one.

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the lovely makes from the rest of the team.

SPARKLES DT - WHITE ON WHITE

Morning Everyone,

I hope you had a good Christmas and received some lovely crafty goodies.

It's the first of the month and time for another challenge at Sparkles Forum Christmas challenge.  The theme for this month is white on white so, I know it's only just gone, but we'd love to see your white christmas cards.




Using all white has given me a chance to raid my white scraps drawer.  I don't know about anyone else, but mine is rather large and doesn't seem to go down much!  I've stamped Creative Expressions shaded poinsettias onto white vellum with Versamark, heat embossed in white and fussy cut them all out (I cut them out whilst watching TV as it took quite a while).  The sentiment is also Creative Expressions and cut in glitter card and the foliage is from a Sizzix Tim Holtz mini greens die set, which was a Christmas present.  The scalloped square die is from Crealies and I think the circle die is MFT.  Glitter was added to some of the foliage and a few pearls finished it off.

I hope you like it and if you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the lovely white creations from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Allsorts - Seasonal Flowers
Pixie's Snippets Playground 313/314 - Snippets used for sentiment, all foliage and scalloped circle.
Creative Craft Cottage - Anything Goes
Creatalicious 130 - Anything Goes
The Sketchy Challenges 133 - Christmas
Southern Girls - All that glitters

Thank you for visiting and I appreciate any comments you leave. I love to read them.

I would like to wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year and thank you all for your visits and lovely comments over the last year.  They really mean a lot to me.

LOVELY AS A TREE

Hi Everyone,

I thought I'd have a break from the Christmas preparations to post this card which I'd made a while ago.



I bought some of the Heat n Stick powder from Stampin Up where you can add any colour glitter to it when it's warm and tacky so I had a play with this stamp from the Lovely as a Tree set and used bronze glitter.  I wasn't quite sure what to do with it for a while and then I found this paper and won some lovely ribbon that matched perfectly, so I turned it into a small A6 card flat enough to post.

I also have 2 new followers and thank them for joining me. I hope you enjoy seeing my makes.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Creations 357 - Anything Goes
Creatalicious Challenges -Anything Goes
Let's Craft and Create - Anything Christmas
Sir Stampalot - Winter Trees
That's Crafty - Tis the Season
The Sketchy Challenges - Christmas

Well I think that's it for now.  I hope you all have a Happy Christmas and New Year and thank you for visiting.  I appreciate any comments you leave and love to read them.

PENNY BLACK SATURDAY - GUEST DT

Morning Everyone,

I am joining in again as a Guest DT over at the Penny Black Saturday challenge for their mid-month inspiration post where the theme is Winter/Christmas.




I've made 2 small 5" cards with this little fella who is from the Holly Day Critters stamp set, as is the sentiment. I've used copics to colour and small scraps of different paper for the top layer which has been edged with a stitched mini scalloped border. One has been matted onto kraft card and the other a red card. Glitter has been added to the hat brim and pom pom.

My photo looks a bit wonky, I think it must be the way I've laid the cards out.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Festive Colours
Come and Get It - Christmas
Addicted to Stamps - Seasons Greetings
Creative Knockouts - Christmas Delight
Polkadoodles - Anything Goes
A Gem of a Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
Pixie's Snippets playground - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I do love to read any comments you may wish to leave.  Hopefully, I will be back in the week but, if not, I hope you all have a Happy Christmas and keep well.

AYLI DT - BOX OR BAG

Morning Everyone,

I hope you are keeping well and have not had too much snow.  It was a rainy here yesterday so hopefully we seemed to have missed this latest batch of icy weather.

It is time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this time we would like you to tell us if you prefer to decorate bags or boxes and to showcase a project.  I have chosen a box as I think they are sturdier than bags, they are fairly easy to make and can make smaller presents such as jewellery look a bit more special.




For my little pillow box I have used paper from an 8" First Edition pad, Gilded Winter, but I stuck it onto a piece of white card first to make it that little bit stronger.  I have decorated it with a gold edged ribbon, a large white flower which I edged with gold coloured stickles and some pearl and gold embellishments.  The little gold balls are rescued from the Christmas crackers we had last year.  I've also added a little tag stamped in gold metallic ink.

The sponsor for the challenge is


with a $10 voucher for the lucky winner.

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Anything Christmas Goes
Dream Valley - Christmas
Crafty Calendar - Christmas
Brown Sugar - Anything But a Card
Paper Creator's Crafts - Christmas and New Year
Noor Design - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I appreciate any comments you leave.  In the meantime keep warm,

The lovely sparkly ribbon and white pearls finish it off.
