Feisty Females

Good Morning Peeps,

Well it's the longest day of the year today so let's hope it's a good one.  It's been lovely to have so many warm sunny days on the run but I don't think there is as much sun forecast today.  I am off this afternoon to see Heidi and Lauren in their Sports Day at school so it would be nice if it was a little shadier and cooler than the past few days.

As it's Wednesday we have a new challenge for you over on Fab'n'Funky there this week our lovely Buffy is the host with her choice of:

Feisty Females with Flowers 

We have a fabulous sponsor for you this week who were so generous with images for the Design Team:

There are some great projects on the Challenge blog by the Design Team, if you have time please take a look and maybe you will be inspired to join in with our challenge this week.

Good Morning Peeps,

Lovely sunny Saturday morning earlier but clouded over at the moment, though the sun should be back later in the morning, so hopefully going to have a lazy day in the garden reading, but first of all it's time for a new challenge over on My Time to Craft where this week our theme is:


I have had this stamp for a few years and never used it but thought it would be ideal for this theme, it is an Urban Stamp by Michael Powell from Docrafts.  I coloured with Copics, the die cut banner is from La La Land, the paper was free from a magazine and I added some ribbon.

Hope you all have a good weekend whatever you have planned, enjoy the sunshine and maybe find some time to join in with our challenge, there is some great inspiration on the challenge blog by the Design Team so maybe pop along and view them.

Down on the Farm

Good Morning Peeps,

It's Saturday so time for a new challenge at My Time to Craft where this week our challenge is:

Down on the Farm

I didn't have any images or stamps which I thought would fit this theme and then I found this rather nice image on a free Making Cards CD which I thought would be suitable.


The papers were from my stash and I added some plain tags with pearls, sentiment and a gingham ribbon.

"Lets Get Sporty"

Good Morning Peeps,

Hope the sun is shining for you today.  We have a new challenge for you today over on Fab'n'Funky where this week I am the host with my theme of:

"Lets Get Sporty"

We have a fabulous sponsor for you this week:

The Design Team were very luck to have images to play with from our sponsor, thank you.

It was my granddaughter Emma's 12th birthday on Monday and I made this card for her, she is learning Tai Kwondo and has a yellow belt so I coloured the image with Copics and made the belt yellow.

Christmas Post and Robins

Good Morning Peeps,

Hope you are all well and looking forward to a good weekend.  We have two of our granddaughters here for the weekend, Abbie and Emma, so this post is being scheduled as I won't get time on Saturday for my computer.

We have a new challenge for you over on My Time to Craft and this fortnight we have a sketch for you to follow:

I thought this lovely sketch should be on a Christmas card.

This beautiful image is from Delicious Doodles and as I haven't used it for a couple of years thought I would dust it off, colour it with Copics and make this card with it.  The paper is from First Edition and I used a Nesties scallop die with kraft card and also cut the snowflakes out in kraft card using a Cheery Lynn die.  The sentiment is courtesy of Desert Diva.
