Good Morning Everyone,

It is the start of a new challenge over at As You Like It and we are asking you to tell us your favourite colouring medium and share a project using whatever it may be.


Out of all the different mediums I have tried I love my Copic markers.  I think it's because they're what I'm most familiar with.  I dabble with Zig markers, but Copics are my go to pens.  There are so many colours and they blend well.

I have chosen a Tracey Hey stamp set for my card.  It was a Christmas present to myself :).  This is quite a large stamp so I've had to use a 7"x 7" card this time.  Coloured with copics and the bunny has been coloured and fussy cut to enable me to position him correctly.  He has been added to the card with tape and I've added a little cotton bobtail.    The sentiment comes with the set.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

 Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for the start of a new challenge over at the Cutie Pies and the first one is themed as Simple Starts, i.e. we would love to see your CAS projects featuring a cute image.

We have been kindly provided with images by the sponsor, Lee Holland, and I have used this adorable mouse with rose.  There just happens to be a 50% sale on at the moment too.  I have coloured him with copics and just added a silver embossed sentiment, which was a freebie from a magazine, and attached him to pink paper to match the rose.  

I am a little late putting this on as hubby has been hogging the computer nearly all weekend with something that needed doing and I can't even comment on my phone for some reason even though I am logged into my account.

Hello Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend.  My card today is made using Whimsy Stamps Wee Snippet and Mystic.  

 I have coloured them with copics and added glitter to the wings and horn.  I have used old LOTV papers in blues and also a LOTV sentiment in silver.  A glittery white ribbon has also been added.

Good Morning Everyone,

It's the start of a new challenge at As You Like It and for this challenge we are asking you to show us your favourite way to decorate a gift. 

When I give either of my daughters something like jewellery I like to put it into a pretty gift bag to make it look more special, much better than a tiny little square box.

I have covered a small gift bag, which is about 4.5" x just under 6" with pink card and cut a piece of Stampin Up specialty paper for each side.  I have decorated one side only with some pretty flowers, shiny leaves and silver beads.  The sentiment has been heat embossed in silver.  The curly ribbon just happened to be in the craft room and suited this perfectly, but I would normally just put tissue paper in the top.

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well and had a good week.  I do like this week in between Christmas as it gives me a chance to relax and do just what I please.  The days do fly by though even when you're not doing a lot! 

I thought I would share this card today which is an image from Colour of Love called Cosmos Fairy.

I have coloured her with copics and simply mounted onto black card with papers to match.  The sentiment is from LOTV.  

I don't make New Year's resolutions, but I have pulled out all my stamps which I have bought and never used and put them into a box on their own, so I'm going to see how much that goes down by the end of 2022.

Morning Everyone,

I hope you have all had a good Christmas.  A very quiet one here, apart from Christmas Eve, when we had the family round, but it's been nice to relax after the build up.

This is the card I've made for the Grand Prize Draw at Pixie's Snippets Playground.  It is a die from Simon Says Stamp called Brilliant Gifts.  I die cut the surround with gold mirri card and cut the individual presents with snippets from a Doodlebug Christmas pad. 

 I do love these pads for their small patterns and would like to buy more when I've used some of my paper mountain. I did have a bit of a sort out before Christmas and gave quite a bit I knew I wouldn't use to the local school.

The sentiment is heat embossed in gold and I've added some gems too.

 Morning Everyone,

This is my reminder post for Christmas Craft Creations where the theme is "Make a Scene".

For my card I have used the cute reindeer from the Let's Prance set by Clearly Besotted.  I drew round a hilly die with a pencil and then stamped the two reindeer in place.  I coloured them with copics and also the sky.  The trees, from the same set, were stamped in green and I've added a white highlighter pen here and there to make them look snowy.

After that I rubbed out my pencil marks for the hills and also coloured them with copics and added white glitter.  I've used a Simon Says stencil with texture paste for the snow and stamped the sentiment, also from the set.

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