It's beginning to look a lot like Cutie Christmas......

Hello friends, no card from me today, instead I am here to shout about the new Christmas Challenge that will soon be coming your way.

My lovely DT Leader, Lisa, is extending the Cutie Pie Challenge Family and starting

It will be a monthly challenge so a perfect opportunity to create cute Christmas cards all year round. She has secured some fantastic sponsors and is looking to extend the Design Team so if you fancy it take a look here for all the details.

Once again I am sorry for not being around,  believe me, I would like to be!! We have lost one member of staff at work and another is soon due to leave so with work, home and my four legged family, sadly crafting is last on the list and I have so much good stuff yet to play with!!

See you soon xx

Sasayaki Inspiration

Happy Sunday everyone. Hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

I have a little Christmassy make to share featuring another lovely digital stamp from Sasayaki Glitter. She is called So Cold.

I coloured her with Promarkers to compliment the papers and added a die cut sentiment that I found in my Christmas bits and pieces box (funny enough I discovered loads more that will get getting an outing soon!!). The tapestry frame is 7 inches in diameter so it's quite large. On Friday we are holding a Breast Cancer Awareness event at work, so I will take it along together with cards and other crochet goods to be sold in support of this fantastic cause.

Thank you for your visit xx

Autumn Leaves

Hello crafters. I have an autumnal card to share today that I made for an October Birthday. The leaves aren't quite this colour in Dorset, but they are getting there for sure. I love walking or riding and hearing the crunch of leaves under foot. Autumn is always special to me as we married in November to fit around the farming calendar. It was after maize harvesting!!

Anyway, I used some of the items that came with the Crafter's Companion Autumn Inspiration Pack and was really delighted with the result.

Back to the theme of walking, I had better take Bowie and Bumble for their morning ramble before I go to work!! Have a good day whatever you are up to xx

Five of a kind, Cutie style

Hello lovely people, welcome to Monday and another new challenge at

This time the theme is 

5 of a kind...simple just include five of something on your cute card.

Here's mine...with five flowers and gems

I used an image from our sponsors All Dressed Up that I coloured with Promarkers to match the pretty papers that I found lurking on my desktop in a long forgotten folder. The finishing touch was a coordinating seam binding ribbon and, of course, five punched flowers and gems.

You have three weeks to join in so see you there if you are a fan of cute!!

Speaking of cute, here is a piccie of the hairy kids!!


Have a good week everyone and thanks for sharing your day with me xx

AYLI DT Inspiration #90

Hello everyone. Well, October is upon us as is a new challenge at

this time we would love to see your projects featuring your favourite flowers...
that is bought or die cut.

 Like many of you I have drawers full of bought flowers in various colours, shapes, sizes and types, however I tend to favour die cut flowers on my cards and projects. I think it is because you can use such a range of mediums to cut, in the case of this card foil and shimmery peal board.

I am not a massive fan of overly shimmery and shiny stuff but I was really pleased with how this one turned out, so much so that I made another one in a slightly different colour!!

Thank you for your visit and your continued support xx

Spooky Sasayaki!!

Happy Saturday everyone or rather what's left of it!! I am a little later than planned as today our youngest chick has fledged and left the nest, so I am feeling sad and thrilled for Connor and Laura in equal measure. Thank goodness for my four legged friends and Hubby of course!!

Anyway you aren't here to indulge my blathering so here is my project a cute Halloween goody bag.

The image is one of the new releases at Sasayaki Glitter. I coloured this spooky little family with Promarkers to match the papers, as usual.

A close up to show the cute characters. Sorry about the photograph I took it late in the day!!

Anyway, I had better go and get the feather duster out, I have another empty room to dust!! I've just had a lightbulb can house my work room there's an idea!!

Thank you ever so much for your visit, it's always appreciated.

See you soon xx
