Good Morning All,

I hope you are having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend those of you in the UK.

It is time for a new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme this time is Tag It, so there must be a tag somewhere on your cute Christmas project please.

I have used one of my favourite Mama Elephant reindeers from Reindeer Games stamp set, coloured him with copics,  and attached him to a white stitched tag with foam tape.  This card is only 5" square and I have used papers from a small Wild Rose freebie paper pad, which must have come with a magazine. The merry die is from Concorde & 9th from Seven Hills Crafts and I have layered it with gold mirri card and heat  embossed the little Christmas word in gold.  Two pieces of red ribbon and three little pearls finish it off.

I would like to enter:

Rudolph Days May challenge
Pixie's Snippets Playground  #353 - all the gold mirri pieces and the red sentiments were snippets
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Crimbo Crackers 185 - Anything Goes
Crafting by Designs -  Feature a Creature

Thank you for visiting and I hope you can join in this month's challenge where the sponsor is Crafty Ribbons with a lovely prize for the winner.

Good Morning All,

This is my final card as a Guest DT for the Colour Crazy challenge, where it is Anything Goes as long as there is hand colouring to be seen.

Contrary to my post yesterday, I have made a boy card and used the sweet "Gamer Little Dude" from the sponsors, Polkadoodles.  You also get extra papers with the image, but the colours don't always come out as they should  from my printer so I've opted not to use them.  I have coloured him with copics to match the papers which are from a pad called Baby Mine by Carta Bella.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and I have added a couple of die cut stars for a bit of extra interest.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Allsorts - Happy 10th Birthday
Di's DigiDesigns - Make it Masculine
Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
Digi Choosday Wk21 - Anything Goes
Polkadoodles Wk 21 - Anything Goes

Good Morning All,

It is time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite "His or Hers" (and don't forget to explain why it's your favourite please).

Mine is definitely girly.  It's a lot easier to add lovely embellishments and although there aren't many on this card, I have lots to get through!

I couldn't resist this cute bunny from the new LOTV release.  I just love the expression on his/her face.  I've coloured with copics and used paper from an old LOTV pad.  The daisy and border dies are both MFT and the sentiment, which is from a Whimsy Everyday Sentiments set,  is stamped in metallic silver.  Two little pink sequins were added to finish it off.

The sponsor for the challenge is

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are keeping well.  I have been to the dentist today, had an x-ray taken and I have to have a tooth taken out on my next visit!  Not something I am looking forward to, but I have been having a few problems with it so hopefully things will improve when it's gone.

I thought I'd share this wedding card with you that has been in my drafts.  It is a 7"x7" card and uses one of my old pre-coloured LOTV prints.

The top die cut is from Spellbinders and the stitched ovals are Tim Holtz Sizzix dies. I have rounded the corners of the papers and added lots of lovely flowers, lace and pearls.  The sentiment is also from LOTV.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Simons Says Stamp Weds - Stitches
Cute Card Thursday - Stitching
Crafty Catz #462 - Anything Goes/Add flowers

Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for another challenge over at As You Like It and we would like you to show us your favourite non card projects (and don't forget to tell us why please).

Recently mine has been finishing Sam in the picture.  I found him half made in a bag of materials when I was having a sort out, together with the pattern.   I couldn't believe it when I saw the magazine that it was over 20 years ago when I made Sally and she has been waiting for Sam all that time!   I thought it was about time I finished him so Sally could have a companion to sit with in the craft room.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

with a prize of an A5 stamp set for the winner

Good Morning All,

It is time for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas and this month we would like to see some holly on your projects.

For my DT card I've used the cute Lee Holland digi "Owl Couple".  I have coloured them with copics and added  glossy accents to the berries.  I have made a circular card with a Tattered Lace die and added red ribbon and the sentiment, which comes from a Lawn Fawn set.  I resisted adding any other embellishments to keep it post friendly.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Cupcake Inspirations - Shaped Cards

Creatalicious #162 - Anything Goes
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes

Have a good week whatever you are doing and thank you for taking the time to visit.
