Winter Wonderland - Add a Heart

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

Here is my second post of the day so not just one Christmas card but two today. The new challenge starts on the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog and the theme is Add a Heart. The sponsor is Sasayaki Glitter.

When I had coloured the image and cut it out there was this piece of red striped paper on the table and that is what I used. I found the other paper in my stash the candy canes on it make hearts. 


There are many gorgeous images in the Etsy shop if you click on the logo you will be taken there. 


This image is called Christmas Couple and it is available HERE   I printed them  onto Neenah Card  and I coloured them with Promarkers. The I cut the image out with my ScanNcut. 


I got some nesting heart dies free with a magazine. I used them to make the heart and the sentiment was added with a Tattered Lace die. 


I am really not sure who I am going to sent this Christmas card too. I am sure there will be someone suitable.

Moving Along with the Times MAWTT - Black and White and one other colour

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I hope your week is going well. I am invigilating for the next two mornings with a very early start on Friday. This is also a busy blog time for me with lots of Design Team commitments coming at the same time.

The new challenge starts on the Moving Along with the Times (MAWTT) Challenge blog and for the next fortnight the theme is to use Black and White and one other colour.


I started by finding a black and white script backing paper. I cut the lattice with the Strip die from John Next Doors Sandwich Box die set.  The frame was made with the Double Pierced Square dies from Creative Expression.


I used the Stitched Flag dies from Creative Expression to make the flag. The sentiment was cut with a die that I won as a prize. 


I used the Gerbera Flower dies and the Gerbera Leaves dies from John Next Door to make the flower spray. 


Enjoy the rest of the week.

Beccy's Place - Ferris Wheel

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? I have been very busy the invigilating has taken a bit of getting used to and of course it has eaten into my craft and blog time.

I am the Guest Designer on Beccy's Place Design Team. Here I am using the second set of images from the second set I was sent.

The background for this card was made with inky kitchen roll that I had dried and stuck to card. The stars were cut with a die I think they were the waste. 


There are many wonderful images in at Beccy's Place. If you click on the logo you will be taken there. 




I printed the image onto Neenah card and I coloured it with Promakers. Then I cut it out with my ScanNcut. 


I put two of the sentiments on the card. 


I cut flags for them with some Sue Wilson dies. 


There you have is quite a simple card. The colouring always takes me a while.  You can see my card on Beccy's Blog HERE. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Always Fun Challenges - Anything Goes

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you have had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead. We dashed to the tip on Saturday (we had loads of garden waste) then to M&S to get nice food for the weekend. We were home in time to watch the wedding which was so lovely. We know Windsor quite well and we have even been to a service in St George's Chapel so that made it all rather special. The weather played its part too. The rest of the day we spent in the garden and my husband fitted in another trip to the tip with even more garden waste. On Sunday we visited the Poppy Wave installation at Fort Nelson near Portsmouth. In evening we had friends round to share a curry. It has been a good weekend.


Being Monday the new challenge starts at Always Fun Challenges and this time the theme is the ever popular Anything Goes. 



I am often asked for cards featuring owls by my friend who runs a Brownie Pack. They make great cards for other people too. The packing paper came from a paper pad from Creative World of Crafts. The die for the branches came from Crafter's Companion. 

Why not join us for challenge 59 the theme is Anything Goes. 


This is another fabulous image by Pollyanna Pickering. We are so lucky that she left a large body of work behind her. 


My go to Happy Birthday die for Crafter's Companion. 


I have another busy week coming up with more invigilating.

I hope you have a great week.

Crafty Catz Challenge blog- Anything Goes with the optional twist of using the Sketch

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been? I have been rather busy which I must admit I rather like. I have been invigilating, I helped at a Felting workshop and I have been out to lunch. This evening our daughter and son-in-law are coming to supper it will be lovely to see them and share a meal. All of this has made it rather hard for me to keep up with my crafting and blogging. Our weekend will be full of gardening.  Our garden has been somewhat neglected for several years so it is taking a while to get it back into order.

Being Friday the new challenge starts today on the Crafty Catz Challenge blog the theme is Anything Goes but we have the optional twist of using the Sketch provided by Niki one of our very talented designers. The sponsor is Digi Doodle Studios. The design team had wonderful images to work with.


All the papers lace and ribbon I used came from my stash lots of it left over from the wedding last year. 

Our sponsor this month is Digi Doodle Studios if you click on the logo you will be taken to the store. 


Here is the sketch. I rather enjoyed using it. 


This image is called Jade and Skye Digi Doodles Sheep Dog Digi Stamp and is available HERE. I printed the image onto Neenah Card Stock and I coloured with Promarkers. Then I used the ScanNcut to cut out the image. 


I had been using the Cape Daisy dies from Creative Expressions and the Star Flower leaves from John Next Door to make flowers for other cards. They seemed to go well with this design. 


This is my go to Happy Birthday die from Crafter's Companion. 


Have a great weekend. Of course there is the Royal Wedding and the FA cup final all to enjoy.

Beccy's Place - Spring Chickens Digital Image Release

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? This week I started invigilating at the local secondary school. It did come as something of a shock to get up at the particular time but it has been okay. It is very casual work. On the plus side it means I have some extra money for Craft supplies.

I am still Guest Designer at Beccy's Place and I am sharing from the first set of the second set of images I was sent. They are part of a new release of images  this month.


I am sharing my favourite card of the ones I made for Beccy. I love the Chickens in this collection they were so easy to colour. They were printed onto Neenah card stock and coloured with Promarkers. They were all cut out with my ScanNcut. 


This is a Twist and Pop card. 


This gives you more room for images and a sentiment. The paper was left over from the wedding I have lots of it. I made one of these cards before and I had more layers which made it bulky when flat. This one has less layers and is easier to fold up. 


This set is called Spring Chickens and it is available HERE. Aren't some of the sentiments just brilliant as well as the chickens. 


I know Beccy liked this card she told me so. I just have to work out who to send it to.
