Silver or Gold?

Happy Thursday everyone, not long until the weekend...yay!!
 Before then though I am sharing my DT piece for


where the new challenge is

SILVER or GOLD

It has to be silver for me especially on a frosty coloured Christmas card. 
|

It is also a chance to showcase Happy Winter who is just one of the fantastic New Release images from Naz at  Sasayaki Glitter that will be available later, together with a 24 hour freebie on the Facebook page. She was coloured with Promarkers and I used a pretty paper with a scene that cut down nicely to position on the stepper card.

Hope you can spare a few minutes between  your Christmas shopping to join in with you gold or silver creations and remember to tell us why.

See you soon xx

Flower Picking

Hello everyone, it's another of those weeks where you can't get rid of me!!

It's my turn to inspire you with another gorgeous image from



This time I have chosen Flower Picking which was actually where my Sasayaki journey started.


She was coloured with Promarkers to compliment the very old MME papers. No frills and fripperies from me except some stickles on the butterflies.

Must fly, I will be back tomorrow though...see, told you it was one of those weeks!!

Take Care xx

Christmas with the Cutie Pies

     Hello everyone. It's such an exciting day today as it's the launch of the very first challenge at

Christmas With The Cuties

I am honoured to be part of this fantastic team and am proud to share my inspiration for the first challenge.


I think you will agree she certainly hits the spot in the CUTE stakes!! I found some very old Christmas papers in my hamper so used those lovely colours as a base for colouring little Rosie. She was coloured with Promarkers. I did a bit of "duffing up" with my distressing tool for a change and sparkled the snow with stickles. I liked my Gemini very much BUT now I LOVE it. The intricate snowflake border cut with one pass and, better than that, every single little bit came out cleanly !! Brilliant!!

Anyway, I do hope you will support Lisa and the rest of her wonderful team and come and pay a visit and join in, I am sure that there will be mince pies and mulled wine on offer...after all it is Christmas...with the Cuties!!

Before I go here is a recent picture of my hairy kids...

Until next time xx

Christmas Couple

Hello crafty peeps, yes...it's me again for the last time this week, and what a busy one it's been. Martin and I have been on annual leave together this week, the first time in 28 years!!  The pups went to see the nice vet on Monday to have "the" operation, but I am pleased to report that, apart from being a little lighter, they are back to their normal boisterous selves as our usual 5-6 mile daily jaunts have had to be shortened for a few days!! We have also taken the time to tidy the garden, including remodelling our fence to further dog proof it, only for Bumble to manage to squeeze under the bottom rail...little blighter!! Looking forward to a quieter day today!!

Anyway my reason for being here is to share another card featuring an image from



This one is  called Christmas Couple 



I coloured them with Promarkers to compliment the papers.  I "borrowed" the design from my lovely blogging buddy Lucy

Anyway better get the hounds walked before it rains.

See you soon xx

Favourite Christmas Colours

Morning crafters, as promised here I am again. This time to share my DT inspiration for


Our challenge is just right for this time of year it's

Favourite Christmas Colours (remember to tell us why)


Our sponsor on this occasion is


and I used Polo and Oreo for my card. It's actually a CASE of one that I made last year for my buddy and DT colleague Annette. I was so pleased with it that I made it all over again, the only difference being I had to colour the edge of the card with Promarker as I didn't have purple cardstock to make the base.

Hope you will pop over and see what my team mates have made to inspire you and perhaps play along and add to your Christmas card pile!!

See you again soon xx
