Cutie Pie Challenge

Hello. It's a cute one from me change there then!!

is ANYTHING GOES, as long as it's cute.

This cute little lady is Winnie from our sponsor

Polkadoodles Ltd

I used Promarkers to colour her to match the pretty papers which are from one of my many "Julie Loves" sets. As usual the design is quite simple but I found myself with a large white area, top right, so used my companion die and stamp set from Whimsy, which filled the space perfectly. The "everything" was heat embossed in white.

Have a good week xx

Hello friends. I hope this finds you well. Yet another Christmas card to share today, this time for

where we are all about stitching and how you add it to your cards.

My nod to stitching is usually by way of dies and on this card the bauble has a stitched edge, as does the circle mat in the middle. I tend to use dies these days for stitched detail mainly for the convenience and speed. 

It was unintentional but I seem to have used a lot of products from our sponsor, Lawn Fawn, on this card, the bauble shaped tag and the stamp and companion dies. It is a dinky little 4x4 card that was coloured with Promarkers.

Thank you for visiting and if I have not visited you recently please accept my apologies. Free time has been in short supply of late what with one thing or another going on here but all will be well in the not too distant future.

See you soon xx

Colour Crazy Craft Challenge

Another Christmas card for you today. This time to invite you to join in at

where we just love seeing your hand coloured cards, the theme is always Anything Goes and this time our sponsor is Bugaboo. I used Christmas Moose Ornaments.

As you can see I went down the delicate girly route this time and even added some ribbon for a bit of texture, it is still fairly flat for posting though. The moose was coloured with Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens and I added a touch of sparkle pen to the baubles on his antlers.

I hope you have a good weekend. Fingers crossed the rain will hold off for a while here in Dorset!!

See you soon xx

Favourite Style

Do you have a particular cardmaking style or are you like me, a bit unsure? 

That is the question for you at AYLI this fortnight. Remember that we are a nosy bunch and like to know why you create how and/or why you do.
I don't really fall into the CAS or frilly and fancy category. I love patterned papers but don't usually tend to add bulk to my cards. I am an inbetweeny!!

This is what I made...

The paper from The Range was the starting point here and I coloured the cute Elf and his presents to match. I used my lovely Sue Wilson Christmas Wishes die again and there you have it a neither Clean and Simple or Frilly and Fancy card!!

Apologies for not being very active with my commenting this week, it has been a busy one. Hope to catch up soon xx

Ribbons & Bows - Christmas Cutie

Hello all. I hope you had a good weekend and that the week ahead is just as good!! 

It is Christmas with the Cutie Pies Challenge time again, boy don't these months roll by!??

This time we would love to see your cute Christmas cards adorned with ribbons and/or bows.

Here is my card to inspire you...

I have no idea where the image came from (shout if you know!!) but it was in my digi box. I coloured it with pencils for a change to match the lovely Echo Park papers which included the sentiment strip too which, I thought, was perfect.

So if you make a card over the coming weeks that is cute, for Christmas and has a bow or ribbon, you know where to come, you will be most welcome.

See you later in the week with another Christmas card xx
