Christmas with the Cutie Pies

Hello friends. I can't tell you how relieved that this week is going to be a "normal" one for me work wise as holiday cover is over for a while. So what better way to kick the week off with a DT card for

where we are 


interpret this as you will...perhaps recycle something on your card or, like I have, use the literal meaning and use only green!!

Our lovely friends at Polkadoodles are sponsoring us. I used Rolling Snowballs and coloured her with lime tone Promarkers. The mirror board is actually green too but, as is so often the case, my dress is reflected and you don't really get the full effect!! The sentiment is a Sue Wilson die.
So that's it...another Christmas card to add to the pile. I really must settle down and make some less cute Christmas cards before the months whoosh us to December!!

Whatever you are up to this week I hope it is a good one.

See you next time xx

Bird or Beast at AYLI

It's nearly Friday again and that can only mean a new challenge at

As You Like It where it's Birds or Beast? 

I have told you many times about my fear of birds, thanks to my Darling Grandma, but on this occasion I have decided to try and overcome my fear by colouring up a cute pair of birds that I found in my digi collection.

I used Promarkers to compliment the Craftwork Cards papers. I used another of Jules' sketches...

...I always turn to her fantastic library when my inspiration and enthusiasm for crafting is lacking!! Thank you lovely lady!! 

We have been out and about again, a visit to Lyme Regis this time...

...a little overcast but still nicely warm and the pistachio ice cream was delicious!! 

See you soon xx

A beauty Session

Hello my friends. I hope you have had a good week. Mine was Ok. Holiday cover again but I did have a good lesson on Wills on Wednesday. After riding Surprise for so many years I thought a little refresher course was in order and let's face it we are never too old to learn.  My thighs have been a bit tender since...but less of that!!

My post today could not be more appropriate as when it goes live I will be sitting in the hairdresser's chair. No rollers for me though!! It is my DT piece for

Colour Crazy Craft Challenge

This little lady is called Beauty Session and was kindly given to the team by our sponsor The Paper Shelter

I got out my old stepper die and some MFT paper and coloured her to match.

That's me for now. See you soon xx
