Wild Animal

 Hello friends. Hope you are all doing okay and it's lovely to see you.

Another DT card to share with you. This time for our new challenge at

this time we are looking for your favourite wild animal. 

For me it has to be a giraffe, there is something about their faces that I find really appealing. It's their eyes that make them so beautiful. My dear little giraffe, and the sentiment, is from a Clearly Besotted set that was a gift. 

Coloured with Promarkers with just a snippet of paper and a scalloped edge for a little bit of interest.

That's all for now. For those of you in the UK, I am hoping that the weather will stay fair for the August Bank Holiday and that you can enjoy it. We have been quite lucky for the last week or so, although the mornings are feeling chillier and are certainly darker as I go about my horsey chores!!  

See you soon xx

Oh Christmas Tree

I have been really good this year and have kept my crafty purchases to a minimum and buying only essentials like cardstock and adhesive. I have had so much enjoyment revisiting paper pads and stamps that  were long forgotten. This sweet Christmas card is one of the prducts of these findings and is my DT card for our latest challenge at

The theme this time is Anything Cute and Christmass with the option of 
"Oh Christmas Tree"


Here is what I made using a totally adorable grey rubber LOTV stamp "Oh Christmas Tree" available in digi form now though, you will be pleased to hear. They were coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens. The paper is from a Maja Designs pad that I have vowed to actually use, rather than just look at, from now on!! Oh and you know what I said in the opening paragraph...I actually lied because the gorgeous tag die is new...but it was essential!! Lots of stickles were used to add a bit of sparkle.

Hope that you will join us.

Wishing you a lovely week ahead whatever you are up to. Stay safe xx

Yellow, red or blue?

I love being on the team at

not only do the challenges ask you peeps to think out of the box but they certainly stir up my grey matter too!! This time we would love to see your projects featuring your favourite primary colour.

 That was a dead easy one for's red. I love Christmas and most, if not all, of my Christmas cards have red on them, like these.

These were super quick to make using just patterned papers (The Works, I think) and red cardstock. 
I simply die cut alternate layers in paper and card and used die cut sentiments on top.

My christmas card stack is looking quite healthy but I think I might make more of this design to have "just in case".

That's all for today. I wish you all a good weekend, when you get there, and hope you will find some time to make something for our challenge.

See you next time xx

Girls, Girls, Girls...Cutie Pie

 Hello friends, old and new, hope you are all doing okay on this Monday morning. Not usually my favourite day of the week as it's my "long" day at work...7.30-18.30 but on the plus side it is time for a new challenge so I am pleased to be here to share my inspiration.

Our theme this time is girly, so cute, pink and fluffy is order of the day!!

I decided to dig out an older rubber LOTV stamp Feather Boa who is, amazingly, still available as a digi. She was coloured with Promarkers to match an A4 Shabby chic Crafters Companion paper booklet (that I suspect was a magazine freebie). Such pretty colours and gorgeous designs so the card came together quite quickly. All I added was some burgungy coredinations that I distressed with a sanding block and some matching organza ribbon. 

I hope that you will join us.

See you later in the week xx
