AYLI - colours of Autumn or Halloween

I have another DT piece to share with you today, this time for

As You Like It Challenge

Our theme is Autumn/Halloween Colours

I have gone with AUTUMN...

...complete with squirrel and some fallen leaves from a Joanna Sheen CD rom. I love the colours that autumn brings with her. The leaves on our trees are really only just starting to take on the golden and russet hues. We were never big on halloween in our house, even when the boys were small and I think I have mentioned before that we are fairly remote and far too spooky for little ones to come trick or treating!! 

I stamped and die cut my leaves and used copper embossing powder before curling them and attaching them to the card for added dimension.

While on the theme of autumn, this was taken on our walk this morning, still quite green although I suspect the forecast frosts may change that a little.

I am not sure what these are, suffice it to say I didn't pick them and cook them with eggs and bacon!!


So, that is me for this week.

See you when I do xx

Wrap up Warm

It's Christmas with The Cutie Pies time again!!

The theme this time is Wrap Up Warm and my DT piece is wrapped in a very stylish coat and scarf and so is her cute companion!!

She was coloured with Promarkers and the yummy scrummy papers are MFT Candy Land which I scruffed up for a change and kept the card flat for posting by not adding any extra embellishments. If you look closely you can see flocking on the furry elements.

It is hard to believe that we are already hurtling towards the festive season. I have even had my first mince pie of the year!! If you are busy making Christmas cards I do hope you will have one that you can bring along to share with us.

See you later in the week, all being well. Until then, take care xx

GD at Colour Crazy Craft Challenge

Hello friends.

I am excited to be here today as a Guest Designer for

Colour Crazy Craft Challenge

This challenge is right up my street as it is all about colouring , which I love...when I have the time, it seems these days!! Anyway the sponsor is All Dressed Up, a shop that I rarely visit ( but will be doing so more often!!), and I chose to use Christmas Robins and did this...

Those cute robins were coloured with my Promarkers and I chose Dovecraft's Little Red Robin papers to match. Nuvo glitter drops Ruby Slippers provided the blobs in the corners ( sorry Sue for borrowing your word, but I can't remember the technical term!!). Good old LOTV stamps for the sentiments and a couple of little bells to finish off.

Hope you have a good weekend. Ahead of that I have a visit to the dentist for a check up and after that my car is booked in for it's MOT. Fingers crossed it won't be too expensive!!

See you soon xx

CAS or Full of Frills at AYLI

Hello. Thank you for stopping by to see me!!

I am trying to increase my Christmas card pile so decided on a simple card for my DT piece for the new challenge at

Our theme is CAS or Full of Frills

I am afraid my style is actually neither of those but probably more simple than frilly!! I generally let the image or paper do the talking and, in this case, it is the card shape that is in the spotlight, courtesy of a lovely die set from here.

The stamp is from Inkylicious that  I watercoloured using Aquamarkers and added a little sparkle too. I should probably have had a little production line going when I made this one...never mind!!

Until next time xx

Going Girly at The Cutie Pie Challenge

Hello peeps. How are you?
Well, I hope and if not so good I wish you better days ahead.

We are Going Girly at

I used an adorable LOTV digi and coloured it with my Promarkers.

The sentiment is from a LOTV rubber set, which, I stupidly bravely stamped direct to fill an empty space!! Thankfully, it worked!!

I hope the week has good things in store for you.

See you soon xx
