Cutie Christmas

 Happy new week everyone. I hope your weekend was good and filled with your favourite things and that the week ahead is kind to you.

My christmas card pile is growing nicely and I have another make to share with you today in support of the new challenge at

As you probably know by now, we are always Anything Goes but add a little option if you like to follow a prompt. This time it's to share a (cute) pre-colored image.

I got a little bit carried away and made three cards using a pre-coloured page from Making Cards magazine and the complimentary paper from the same edition. I also found a pack of DL cards so used those up and made another in kraft.

The sentiment stamps were from a Clearly Besotted set and I finished them off with skinny ribbons and a knot.

I hope I have inspired you to join in and add to your own Christmas card pile.

Thank you again for your visits here and continuing to inspire me xx

Rain at Allsorts

Happy Weekend everyone!! I am here with my weekly inspiration for

Allsorts challenge where the optional theme is Rain. 

This theme made me very happy and I knew exactly what I was going to showcase. 

It's been far too long since I spent an evening fussy cutting so this charming, rainy, House Mouse design was just perfect. It's layered up with Pinflair glue gel and really didn't need much else. Rather than just make a tent card I went with an easel for a change so that the dimension is fully on display.
Mats in pink and black framed it rather nicely too.

Well, our little Grandaughter Mollie was incredible throughout her acrobatic dance performance. Bless her litte heart, she did five shows over four days and at six years old I think that's pretty incredible!! The whole production was fantastic with ages from fifteen months upwards. Looking forward to the next show!! 

Thank you for your lovely company today and I hope you have time to join us at Allsorts xx

AYLI - People or animals

 Hello friends. I hope that you are having a good week. The weather here in Dorset has been damp and warm which has been perfect for putting fertiliser on the paddocks. Not so perfect are the wet muddy dogs that take ages drying after our walks!! 

Today is the start of the fortnightly challenge at

which is People or Animals

I am never very happy with my efforts colouring hair and skin to generally go for animals as fur is much more forgiving if I make a boo boo!!

I used an old image (Squirrel with bee) from our sponsor Lee Holland Art and coloured with Promarkers. I also tried my hand at stencilling again. In real life the ink is much brighter in shades of green and peach which went quite well.

Thank you for your visit. See you Saturday xx

Perfect Pastels

 Hello everyone. I am really enjoying sharing my Saturdays with you. 

The optional theme at Allsorts challenge #720 is Perfect Pastels.

Here's what I made

As cute is my "thing" I had a rummage through my LOTV rubber and found this cute springtime  stamp (Delightful Daisies). I had an equally fun rummage through my paper and found a couple of pastel MFT pads. Decisions, decisions!! The sweet image was coloured with Promarkers, as usual.

We would love it if you would join in and be in with a chance of winning one of these fabulous prizes from our generous sponsors.

I hope you are all looking forward to a nice weekend. I am beyond excited to be taking my Mum to the theatre this afternoon to see Mollie on the stage. She has been dancing for a couple of years now (ballet and acrobatic dance) and is performing in a Dance spectacular...can't wait!!

Thank you for stopping by, it's always much appreciated.
See you soon xx

I spy, with my little eye, something beginning with B

 Hello friends. I hope you had a good weekend and that a happy week lies ahead.

starts today and the optional theme is " Beginning with B", as always though your entry must be as CUTE as can be!!

I think my inspiration ticks all the boxes and has Bunny, Birthday, Binding, Bow, Butterflies and Blue.

I used my good old go Kreate die set for the base and mat. I dug out a favourite stamp set from The Cats Pajamas that has been used many, many times before and always makes me smile. You can get her (and many others) here in digi form. I still had Maja Designs Coffee in the Arbour on my desk so pulled some blue papers from that for the layers. Bunny was coloured with Promarkers and I added some Stardust Stickles to the icing which, as usual, does not photograph well!!

That's me for today. I hope that you will join along and I hope to see you soon xx
