Family or Friends

 Hello friends thank you for stopping by today where I am as pleased as punch to be sharing my inspiration for

We would love to see projects that you have made for friends or family, don't forget to tell us why.

I am very fortunate to work with a fabulous bunch of ladies and make them a different gift for Christmas each year. I have previously gifted hot chocolate bags, tree decorations and pocket tissue holders. This year I have made them Festive Face Coverings as seen on my glamorous assistant!!

 I have made myself quite a few during the pandemic
to co-ordinate with certain items of clothing and have used this tutorial every time. The prep takes far more time than the actual sewing and the results are always perfect.

I hope that you will manage to find some time to play along.

Keep well and see you soon xx

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

 Hello again!! More Cutie inspiration for you, this time

where we are saying "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and would love to see your Cutie Christmas cards inspired by a Christmas song or carol.

Mine is Frosty the Snowman

I used glitter paste through a snowflake stencil for the background that, on it's own, looked a little bit bare so I had a rummage through my die cuts and found a little house scene that was a freebie from Dies to Die For. The little snowman is from a Cats Pajamas set and was coloured with Promarkers.

While on the subject of Frosty, you may remember that I was planning to make sock snowmen, well here is the first!!

I was really pleased with the result, there are loads of tutorials on You Tube if you would like to have a go, it was really easy to do but be warned, you need LOTS of rice!! 

So, that is me for today. I hope this week will be a good one for you. Thak you for popping in to see me, your comments and support are much appreciated xx

White Christmas

 Happy Monday peeps!! It's a double whammy from me today with two Cutie visits.

I will kick off with 


I went with a CAS design and used an uninked stamp set from Crafters Companion.

I coloured, as usual, with my Promarkers using the package as inspiration. The lovely sentiment is from a very old Chocolate Baroque Christmas message set.

See you in a bit!! xx

Naughty List

Hello friends, hope you have had a good week. Mine has whooshed by and I expect yours has too.

I have a tall card to share today, it's my inspiration for

Our sponsor this time is Oddball Art and I used  Naughty List. I coloured her with my Promarkers used a printed Nitwits paper as a background.

I had some scraps of lime green mirror board so used them to frame the image and sentiment.

Hope you have a good weekend xx

This house believes!!

So, December and new lockdown tiers have arrived, good and bad in equal measure I think!!

I have more christmas cheer for you today by way of a little sign that I made. 

Today heralds the start of the new challenge at

 and we would love to see your projects inspired by your favourite Christmas film. I have lots that I watch time and time again but top of the list has to be Miracle on 34th Street, any of the versions actually but I love the part in the most recent one where the "bad" people share their well hidden "I believe" badges!! 
Now we definitely believe in the Wills household so I made this...

..."no doubt about it, he's real!!"

It's not a great picture, so I apologise for that, dull days and artificial lighting do not make for brilliant photos do they?! 

I dusted off a piece of MDF and covered it with some suitably festive snowflake paper. Now something brilliant happened this week, Jules mentioned her Craft Artist programme on a post and I was reminded how much I loved using it on my old desktop computer which died well over a year ago. I knew I still had the installation disk which I assumed would not be compatible with Windows 10 so imagine my utter elation when I discovered that IT WORKS!!!! Martin could not quite understand why I was jumping about beside myself with joy, but that's men for you!! Anyway, the point of this unnecessary rambling is to say that I was able to easily type, colour and shadow text, print it out, fussy cut it and layer it onto the covered board!! Phew!! Many die cuts were  sprayed with shimmer spray and randomly stuck on, together with a bit of bling and glamour dust was sprinkled everywhere. Trust me, it's incredibly sparkly!!

Keep well everyone xx
