We are feeling a little bit peckish at
I used this Mixed Up Craft tutorial for the impossible card base and, as it was little bit floppy without, added the connecting panels on the front and back for stability. I had used 300gsm card but I think the cutting and folding just weakened the base a little. The image was coloured with my Promarkers and I bravely cut into a piece of Maja Design paper to decorate the base. I bought the Daisy Mae arch die set a while back and, I think, this is the first airing. They are a really great size so I think will probably make a rather nice card base at Christmas.
I hope I have given you some inspiration to join us and once again thank you for continuing to visit and leave such encouraging comments. In a world where it's easier to "like" I much appreciate your time. Oh yes, on the theme of commenting hasn't blogger been a devil of late?! Darnell has shared a "how to" if you are struggling. I have done a bit of housekeeping and hope that my comments are now reaching you all!!
Take Care xx

Hello friends and visitors. Hope you are keeping well and happy.
I am very happy indeed as the new theme at
is right up my street, digis and die cuts. We had some lovely images from our Sponsor, Fred She Said, and I coloured mine with my Promarkers to match the lovely paper that I picked up during a recent visit to The Range at Weymouth. My die cuts are the mats which come from a Tonic set and a "happy" that was cut twice for a bit of height.
I tested myself with the colour combo and am quite pleased with the result.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope I have tempted you into joining us with your cute makes.
See you later in the week xx

Hello, me again and it's lovely to be back with my DT card for
I am ever so lucky to be on this team and I hope that, like me, you feel that it makes you think out of the box a little bit. This time we would love you to share your favourite sketch or layout and give the reason for your choice.
When I am lacking inspiration I ALWAYS pay Jules a visit. She has a wonderful library of sketches here that she is happy to share.
I used number six to create this...
...and not a cute image in sight!!
I found this rather splendid paper pack while, as usual, I was looking for something else entirely. It's Docrafts Parisienne Blue Capsule Collection that, as is so often the case, I had forgotten existed. As it all co-ordinates it was pretty quick to put together and I also discovered a navy blue ink pad for the stamped sentiment so that was a very good day in my craft room!!
It would be lovely to see your favourite layout or sketch.
See you when I do xx
