Peggy on mushroom

Hello lovely peeps. Nearly the weekend again, thankfully!! Before that though it is my turn to share another Sasayaki Glitter creation. This time it's Peggy.

How cute is she, sitting on her toadstool!! I coloured her with Promarkers, glittered her wings and used more of the wonderful Craftwork Cards Julie Loves Collection. Little Lucy gave me the pretty doily ( thank you xx) and I finished off with pearls and rolled roses from the papercraft kit too.

See you soon xx

Christmas Animals

Hello blog land buddies.  It's new challenge time at

where your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to inundate us with Christmas cards showcasing cute animals....easy peasy!!

Here's mine, featuring a really cute polar bear from our sponsor


I coloured the little darling with Promarkers and I think I am right in saying that the backing paper is from a Doodlebug pad. My glittery snow is by Marianne Designs and the sentiment from a new Crafters Companion stamp set.

I will see you on Thursday, until then, have a good one xx

AYLI Favourite Paper Pad

Hello everyone. Here I am to shout about the new challenge starting at

As You Like It

Your Favourite Paper Pad.

What???? I couldn't choose if my life depended on it!!  However...I somehow managed to subscribe to the Craftwork cards Julie Loves collections and have really been enjoying using these wonderful kits. I love the sweet Ditsy prints which I really like to use on my cards.

I used a couple of papers here to create a little background scene for Lazy Daisy. The cute little pair were coloured with Promarkers and I added a fence to finish the scene. We had a pony on the yard once that used to lie down when he thought he had worked hard enough,  rider and all!!

Before I go here are Surprise and I coming back from a walk a couple of weeks ago. She is much better now, thankfully.

Stylish I know...wellies and shorts!!

Thank you as always for your visit xx

Winter Mia

Hello friends, hope you are all safe and well. 

I am back in Christmas mode and have Mia Winter to share with you. She is available here together with lots of other sweet images. 
I coloured her with Promarkers. The papers are from my stash and I added some snowflakes using die cut glitter card. The Merry Christmas die is new and I am rather pleased with it...not too big yet not too fiddly either. Ooh and finished off with a few little pale blue pearls.

So, that is me for today. All very quiet here in Dorset which is just as we like it. It seems to have got a lot cooler though. I had to put away my cropped work trousers, which made me very sad, hopefully we will get an Indian summer in October when my holiday cover stint is over...can't wait!!

Right, I am off...see you soon xx

Favourite Cutie Image

Welcome to another new week and another new challenge at

The Cutie Pie Challenge

It's a rather special challenge as it's our 6th Birthday and for the occasion we have lots of sponsors, so many chances to win!!

I used an image from Bugaboo, one of said sponsors.

She was coloured with Promarkers to match one of the elements from Craftwork Cards August kit (which is scrummy!!). I used my favourite colour combination here, pink and turquoise...ish, my summer wardrobe is based around these colours and sadly soon to be packed away and replaced by winter woolies and boots!!
Anyway, less of that!! Hope you, and your Cute cards, will join us for our celebrations!!

See you later in the week. Until then take care xx

AYLI Flora or Fauna

Happy Thursday everyone. Hope you have had a good week. It's been lovely here in Dorset, although the mornings are so much darker so my early jaunts have been put back a bit, much to the disgust of our four legged family members.
Which brings me nicely to the theme for the new challenge at

As You Like It 

We would love to see your projects featuring Flora or Fauna.

As you can see I chose every sense. Although I love my garden, when it comes to card making its animals and people that inspire me.

 I bought this Clarity stamp quite a few years ago now and stamped and embossed it and it has sat in my "not quite sure what to do with" box ever since!! While flicking through my paper pad mountain, as you do, I came across deer backing paper and so my card idea was born.  Throw in a new embossing folder, bells and some ribbon and bingo...job done!!

I hope I have I managed to inspire you to join us.

Well, that's it for now.  Take Care xx

Under the Rain

Hello and welcome, it's me again, with yet another Sasayaki Glitter image for you.

It is New Release day today and this little lady is one of them. I do hope I am not tempting fate with the umbrella, as it has been positively gorgeous here in the UK for the past week. I hope it stays that way because I am not quite ready yet for muddy ponies and dogs on a daily basis!!

Anyway less she is...Under the rain

i used some old My Mind's Eye papers as the starting point here, mainly because of the perfect sentiment cut from the pad. She was coloured with Promarkers (I am not entirely happy with the umbrella, my Royal blue was quite dry and I didn't achieve a very smooth blend) and the sweetheart blossom balances the card quite well, I thought.

Well that's me for now. I don't think I will be troubling you, with any waffle, tomorrow. So until next time stay well and have a good weekend  xx
