A well used colour at AYLI

 Hello friends. Wherever you are in the world I hope that you are keeping well. We are currently heading towards the end of an icy and cold spell in Dorset UK which was preceded by flooding which made the sub zero temperatures all the more interesting!! Picture, if you will, me sliding across the stable yard hanging on to the wheelbarrow full of manure!! I survived!!

My share today is wrapped up ready for such temperatures!!

It's my DT piece for the new challenge over at

where we are asking you to share your creations showcasing your most used (favourite) single colour. I revisited my blog and found that peachy pink teamed with aqua seems to be a favourite of mine. The adorable PB Bundled Bunny is a new addition to my stamp family and was coloured with Promarkers to match the pretty Simply Creative papers that came from either The Range or Hobbycraft, I think.

It would be lovely to see you join us, it's always worth a go as we have some lovely sponsors!!

See you soon friends xx

Thank you Fairy Friend

I took a little break away from craft leading up to Christmas but golly I missed it and it's good to be back!

So for the second time this week I am here to share another DT card.

 Over at 

 we want to see your favourite reason for making a card.

Those of you old enough will remember that Post Office sets were popular Christmas presents in the 70's and Mum and Dad always made sure we used the paper to write our Thank You letters. Not much has changed for me here in my 50's and I still send Thank You cards at this time of year.

This one is with thanks for the stamp set that I used to make it! I have everything crossed that it will have been received by the time this post goes live!! 

Thank you for dropping by today, your company is always appreciated xx

January Blues

 Happy New Year everyone and I hope you have survived the first week of 2023!! With Christmas now behind us and the New Year under way it's lovely to be back here with a card to share.

The Cutie Pies Challenge is now a Just for Fun Challenge and we are kicking off with


I had an accidental Sale purchase back in December and added a lovely collection from Amanda Jayne Designs to my stash. I decided to colour up one of her wonderful images and use one of the pretty papers for my inspiration.

Sorry (not sorry) if you are fed up with Christmas cards!! This little cutie was coloured with Promarkers and I used a Clearly Besotted sentiment from Rockin'Robin set.

I am looking forward to catching up with you all after taking a bit of a blogging break for the festivities.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and don't forget to add us to your Challenge list!!

See you later in the week xx
