'twas the Challenge before Christmas
Told you I would be back in a while didn't I!!? With the Cutie Pies still in mind we have brought forward our
December challenge and the theme is a really good one. We would love you to revisit our challenges from this year and make a card to fit your favourite.
I went with the July Challenge CAS and made this little cutie...
I managed to get the lovely little peek-a-boo snowman stamp and die set and the die cut window arches last year and thought it was about time I actually used them!! The card came together remarkably quickly and all I did was added some snowy backing paper inside and some sparkly snowflakes on the front.
That's it from me for today. See you later in the week xx
Cute and Cuddly Christmas
Good Morning friends. I'm not sure I am liking the pace at which December is galloping along, too much to do and not enough time. Sound familiar!? Still, I did get the marzipan on my christmas cake at the weekend, managed to wrap some presents and the sloe gin has been strained and bottled so not all bad!! I hope that your preparation is going well, although who knows what Christmas is going to look like with the new Omicron variant taking hold. Anyway less of that!!
I have a card to share today to encourage you to join in at
where we are having a Cute and Cuddly Christmas. I am a huge fan of the images from our sponsor Hetty Clare and used Little Donkey
I coloured him with Promarkers and put him in a snowglobe as I had the perfect backing paper to hand!! As usual, the silver mirror board did not photograph at all well, but you all know what it looks like!!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you will find some time somewhere to join us.
See you in a little while!! xx

Jingle Bells and Snowflakes
Jingle Bells and Snowflakes sounds like the title of a Christmas film but in this case it's my chosen Christmas Embellishments as per the Challenge that goes live today at
We would love for you to share your projects showing off your favourite Christmas Embellishments.
Those of you that have been long suffering followers will remember that I make small Christmas gifts for my work colleagues each year. This is the 2021 offering!! I have covered MDF baubles with pretty Maja Design papers. Each one has a different sentiment and they all have bells and snowflakes.
Jingly bells take me back to my childhood when the local Fire Brigade used to transport Father Christmas to the local villages. Somehow the front of the Fire Engines were made to look like his sleigh and had reindeer and everything. I have to confess that my Sister and I were terrified!! And the snowflakes...well no self respecting card or home decor would be seen without a snowflake or two.
There are also more in festive colours too, so you might get to see them another time.
Thank you for calling and I look forward to seeing your projects. See you soon xx
