 Morning Everyone,

We have a new challenge starting over at As You Like It and we would like to know your favourite animal whether it be real or fantasy.

I do like most animals but I have to say dogs are my favourite. We have 2 of them and they are so loving and loyal and great to have around.  

For my card I have used a Di's digital stamp call Puppy Daisy.  I have coloured with copics and used kraft card for the mats and two dotty papers from the same pad.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

with a voucher for the lucky winner.

I hope you can join us with this easy theme and you can see the inspiration from the rest of the DT here.

I would like to enter:

Thank you for your visit and have a nice day.

 Morning Everyone,

This is my reminder post for Christmas Craft Creations where the theme this month is CAS.

For my card I have used a Spellbinders die called More Holiday Decorations, which I bought in one of their sales a while ago.  I've used mirri card for the string and cut the lights from oddments of glitter card.  The sentiment is a mixture of two stamps from different companies.

I hope you will be able to join in. There are three lovely prizes on offer and you have until Tuesday, 12th September to enter so still plenty of time.

Thank you for visiting and I will be back tomorrow.

Morning Everyone,

It is the start of a new challenge at the Cutie Pie challenge and the these is Stamps and/or stars.

This new theme gave me the opportunity to use my Caped Cuties from Clearly Besotted stamps again.   I made a similar card here and just had to use this backing paper again, which is from the Works, as I think it makes a great night sky.  Four of the little cuties have been stamped this time, coloured with copics, and fussy cut.  I've added a larger moon, glittered up my stars and heat embossed a sentiment from the same set.

I hope you will be able to join us and your can see the inspiration from the rest of the DT here.

I would like to enter:

 Morning Everyone,

A new challenge starts today at As You Like It and we are asking to see your favourite 2 colour combo.

I have used green and yellow.  I thing it's such a fresh looking combination and always reminds me of Spring flowers.  We have kindly been provided images by the sponsor

and I have coloured this cute gnome with copics and just added 3 small die cut flowers and twine with kraft as the base.  The sentiment was computer generated and I've printed it in grey as I think black can look a bit too harsh sometimes.

I would like to enter:

Thank you for your visit and have a good rest of the week.

 Morning Everyone,

This the card I made for my younger daughter's first baby. She had her by caesarian as baby had turned the wrong way, both doing well.  The interrupted sleep at night is a bit of a shock to her and her boyfriend, but everyone has to go through it and it will only get better eventually (hopefully)  :) .

When I saw the Bundle of Joy dies from Honey Bee Stamps on the Dies to Die For website I knew I wanted to have a play.  I had a big search through my snippets to find patterns small enough for baby clothes and this is what I came up with.  I think they are all from LOTV pads apart from the pink set of trousers on the left.  The coat hangers and hooks were cut 3 times and glued together for strength. I coloured the bindings on the two pieces on the right with copics and the white frills on the green piece with a white paint pen.

The Congrats die is from Creative Expressions and the smaller piece underneath was created on the computer.

Photo of snippets, some before cutting and some after.  The lilac one was an afterthought so not in the photo.
