Happy sunday everyone. It's pretty horrid here in Dorset, grey, rainy and quite blowy so I thought I would make use of indoors time and make Mollie a Halloween card. It's not something we ever did when our Sons were small but Mollie enjoys dressing up and visiting their neighbours.
That cute image (re-discovered on a memory stick!!) is Puddle Jumpers Ghost Girl from Lori Designs. Coloured with Promarkers and glittered up a bit. I coloured the mats with the same Promarkers as the image for complete coordination. So there we are, ready to put in the post tomorrow, as first class post in these parts has been taking a week to arrive at it's destination recently.
Enjoy the rest of you weekend everyone and see you tomorrow xx
I Love Promarkers #446 - Anything Goes +/- die or punch

An odd title I know but we like to keep you on your toes when you join in at
This time we would love to know if you prefer people or animals on your cards/projects.
For me it's animals, particularly the cute and fluffy variety, they are so much easier to colour than hair on a person. The card I am sharing is using one of my favourite critters actually, and the sentiment always makes me smile.
I used a Do Crafts (I think) pad, for this pretty pink joy fold card, so that the papers were a perfect match for my pink loving friend. The bunny was coloured with Promarkers to match.
Well it's been a rainy old week so far in Dorset, much needed but a shock to the system nonetheless!! It wasn't ideal for our first Over 65's Flu Clinic yesterday. Keeping Covid safe we had all the windows and doors open so it was a tad draughty!!
Thank you for your company friends. See you soon xx

Well hello, hope you are all keeping well and had an enjoyable weekend. I love live theatre so couldn't pass up the opportunity to watch Connor's girlfriend, Amelia, as Elizabeth-Jane in Thomas Hardy's Mayor of Casterbridge. My word, it was a brilliant production and a lovely trip down memory lane to revisit O'level English Literature!!
Anyway, I am not here for that, it's all about the new challenge at
I don't have the accompanying die set so the little farm animals were fussy cut and stuck on with foam pads for a little bit of dimension.
I am wishing you all a good week ahead. Keep well xx

Hello friends. Hope you are all doing okay.
I have a clock to share with you today. At As You Like It this time we would love to see your non card projects. My crafty journey started with cross stitch and since then I have tried lots of different crafts. This clock started life as a kit that was a Birthday gift. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and it's now proudly hanging on the living room wall.
Thank you for calling in and I really hope that you will make a little project and join in.
See you soon xx
