 Moring Everyone,

We have a new challenge starting over at As You Like It and for this fortnight we are asking whether you prefer people or animals.

I much prefer to colour animals. They are easier than people and you don't have hair to contend with just fur or spines as in my little hedgehog.  I have made a simple design with my Penny Black hedgie and coloured him with copics.  The sentiment is a die from Gummiapan and grass die from CC Designs.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

I hope you will be able to join us and look forward to seeing your entries.  Thank you for visiting and have a good day.

Good Morning Everyone,

This is my reminder post for Christmas Craft Creations where the theme this month is One Layer or some say No Layer.

I'm not used to doing one layer cards so didn't find it very easy.  I had a few attempts at different ideas, but ended up with an around the edge card with various foliage stamps which were a freebie from a magazine a few years ago. I have coloured them with copics and heat embossed the sentiment in red. 

There is a mystery package on offer for the winner of the prize and the challenge ends on 11th April so still plenty of time to enter.

I would like to enter:

Crafty Catz - Go for Green 
Creative Knockouts - Add a Sentiment
Rabisco Challenge - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I will be back again tomorrow. Three times in one week, must be a record!

Hello All,

I hope everyone is keeping well.  Monday is usually the day I look after our grandson, but my daughter has this week off so I am on a free day and have taken the opportunity to do some crafting.

I have made this card with some new dies for me from Hero Arts.  The flowers are from 3 separate sets.

The roses and leaves have been cut from pink and green cardstock and shaded with white ink and copics and the rest of the flowers have been cut from white snippets and coloured with copics. 

I found a piece of patterned paper in my snippets box which I thought would be suitable for wrapping a bouquet and cut that out with the die in the set and wrapped with twine.  The sentiment has been printed in pink and is from The Greetery.  The background plate is from Reverse Confetti.

I would like to enter this into:

Passion for Markers - Spring Colours
PIP challenge 2311 - Anything Goes
Snippets Playground - Snippets were the wrapper and flowers.

Thank you for visiting and I will be back later in the week.

Good Morning Everyone,

Today is the start of a new challenge at the Cutie Pies and we are asking for anything cute beginning with the letter B.

I have gone with Birthday Bunny and Balloon on my card, the image being from LOTV.  I have coloured with copics and added a few glittery stars to the ones already there.  The starry paper is also from LOTV as are the sentiments.

Morning Everyone,

There's a new challenge starting over at As You Like It and we are asking for you to show us your favourite Easter critters.

It's either chicks or bunnies for me and I've chosen bunnies as they are so soft and cuddly and children love them.

Our sponsor, Last Minute Manda, has kindly provided the DT with images and I have coloured this cute bunny with copics, die cut him with a tag and added little egg shapes from snippets of patterned paper.

I seem to be in a green and yellow phase at the moment, this is my third card in this colour way recently.
You can pop over to the challenge here to see the inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Has anyone else had anything odd going on with their comments just lately.  I've had at least 10 appear in my spam folder and they're all from years ago, as long as 2017,  from legitimate bloggers. I don't know if they were there and have been taken out of my comments or if they never appeared in the first place. Very strange!

Anyway, have a good day and thank you for taking the time to visit.

I would like to enter:

Allsorts - Four legged animals
Critter Crazy - Anything Goes with a critter
Get Creative - Bunny Hop
Rabisco - Anything Goes
