GDT Colour Crazy Challenge - Baby Deer

Hello everyone.

I have another Christmas card to share today. This time for

Colour Crazy Craft Challenge

Let me introduce Baby Deer...isn't she adorable?!


Coloured, as usual, with my Promarkers and this time I inked a stamped background panel with versamark ink and brushed very old Imagination Crafts shimmer powder over the top. For a little dimension I raised the image on foam pads in front of it.

I hope you have something nice planned for the weekend. We intend to go to Weymouth and have a wander around the town and a walk along the beach, although the weather forecast looks pretty ghastly at the moment...fingers crossed!!

Bye for now xx

Sparkle with The Cutie Pies

Hello peeps!! Hope you are well and getting your Christmas prep underway. If you happen to be short of a card or two why not join us at...


The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog

...although it doesn't have to be Christmas if you are really organised. must be cute though!!

We would love to see your cards with a bit of sparkle this time. Here is what I did using Forest Friends Christmas Foster an image from our sponsor...Little Miss Muffet.


I coloured this cutie with my Promarkers and used some lovely glittery cardstock, glamour dust and stickles too for some real sparkle.

I sent Martin up in the attic to get the trimmings down yesterday so my tree is now dressed and looking very twinkly in the corner. Christmas has now arrived chez Wills!!

Rightio, that is me for today. Have a good week and see you soon xx

Christmas animals at AYLI

As another week draws to an end I am here with my DT piece for

As You Like It

Our theme is Favourite Christmas Animal.

My regular visitors will know that I love all animals so couldn't possibly pick just one favourite so I have gone with Christmas Dog, Cat and, of course, the traditional Christmas robin. The other reason is that Polkadoodles is our sponsor and it was far too cute to resist!!



As usual my image was coloured with Promarkers to match the colours on the paper. I dug out some matching green mirror board for the die cut edge and sentiment.

That's me for now. I hope you will be able to find a bit of crafty time and join in.

See you soon xx

Anything But A card



Happy Monday again...don't the weekends go by in a flash?!!

Can you believe that in a months' time Christmas Day will have been and gone!! How on earth did that happen? I have only just put my summer clothes away!!

Anyway you can stock up  your Christmas creations by joining in at 


where the theme this time is

Anything But A Card

I made a gift bag using an image from our sponsor Crafty Sentiments.



The foliage was cut with a Crafters Companion die and the little fella was coloured with Promarkers. You can just about see that the aperture is covered with snowy acetate too. the bag itself was made using a printed snowy paper from The Lovely Studio.

Rightio, I have scared myself with my comment about the big day being less than a month away so fully intend to get some Christmas shopping done this week...how are you doing with yours?!

that's all for now. See you when I do xx

Rubber Stamps or Digi Stamps??

Hello. 

It's time for the new challenge at 



where we would like you to share a project featuring a stamped image...Rubber or digital. Remember to tell us the reason for your choice too!!

I have been a huge fan of both in the past  but I have chosen rubber because that is how my stamping life started and it's also a perfect opportunity to share an image from a recent rubber purchase from here!!


The cute penguins were coloured with Promarkers to match the MFT papers

It would be lovely to see you join us!!

Have a good weekend, when you get there.

See you Monday xx
