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.

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.

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

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.

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:

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

Morning Everyone,

I'm back again!  Three days in a row is definitely a first for me!

I am pleased to be a guest designer on the Penny Black Saturday challenge today where the theme for December is Winter/Christmas.

I've had a play with this little chap from the Holly Day Critters stamp set and used paper from Crafts and You called Frozen. The little mouse is coloured in copics with his scarf to match the papers.  Dies I've used are stitched circles, stitched squares, mini scalloped edges, Marianne design circle die and the stitched banner die from Creative Expressions. The lovely sparkly ribbon and white pearls finish it off.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Noor Design - Anything Goes

Deep Ocean Challenge  171 - Fave Card/Project 2017 - this is my 2nd favourite - I really love the colours and the design.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you haven't got too fed up of my posts this week!  If you can leave a comment it would be greatly appreciated. I love to read them all.

Have a good weekend,

Morning Everyone,

I'm back again.  Today is the start of another challenge over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge and the theme is Snowman/men.

For my card I've created a little scene with a Whipper Snapper stamp called Prescott.  He is one of those stamps that when it arrived it was much larger than expected.  I've coloured him with copics and fussy cut him out. The hillside borders are Lawn Fawn and the larger tree is from Find It Trading.  I do normally like to have a sentiment on the front,  but when I'd completed the card I couldn't decide where to put one so it is without for the moment.  I've put liquid appliqué on his hat and skate and stickles around his boots.

I hope you'll be able to join in with this easy peasy theme and if you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see what the rest of the team have been up to.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Fab n Funky - Christmas
Creative Knockouts - Snow Much Fun
Card Mania - Christmas
Southern Girls - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes/Let It Snow

Thank you for visiting and I appreciate any comments you leave.

See you soon,
