Oh dear not sure what happened to my scheduled post but it would appear it vanished!!!!

This is my DT card for CRAFT Challenges this week and the theme was "Use Metal" so as you can see I have used a little metal pram.  The image is a Meljens one (one of the many fab sponsors this week), coloured with my promarkers.  A real snuggly baby me thinks...

Do pop along to the challenge blog page and have a look at the many fantastic projects the team have come up with.  Do join in the fun as you could be one of the lucky winners

Love and hugs

Good morning

Hello and good morning to all my followers

Poodles Parlour's challenge this month is a real easy one...."Anything goes" and our sponsor is "Milk Coffee Digi Stamps"

I chose these lovely cups and saucers - his and hers coloured with my promarkers and added a sentiment circle and some inkylicious lace.  Quite a simple card but i really like it.

Hope you are all having a great week and look forward to seeing you all soon.  Anyone going to stamp magic on Sunday - I am!!!

I love Promarkers

Little reminder

Bit of a last minute reminder to pop over to the Nutcrafters challenge blog and have a look what the fab team have come up with.  The theme is paper piecing and if you have never tried it before - have a go it really is such fun....

I've been sewing!!!!

Never thought i would say that but I have!!!!  I bought this lovely little kit from a super lady in the lake district last year.  She sells the kits in jam jars and provides you with everything to make this little owl.  So as a de-stress project i made it up last week when i was away in Cornwall.

Here is the link if you want to have a nosey and if she is holding a craft fayre near you do pop along as she sells the most beautiful items...

Now I need some scraps of material to make some more...

I have some other projects to show you later too...

Mono challenge for you...

Good morning we have a monochromatic challenge for you at CRAFT Challenges and i have gone for the pink theme...

Lucky me got to use another Bugaboo Image "JJ Baking", colored her in with my promarkers, found some old stash (bazzil basic cardstock, ribbon and a button) a sentiment from creative expressions and there we have another DT card.

We would love to see your creations this week but please remember the theme...good luck to all those that enter.  Fab sponsors means fantastic prizes!!!!

Love and hugs

Good morning to you all, another scheduled post from me as we are still in Cornwall, spending some time (hopefully) with my poorly SIL.

The challenge this week at CRAFT Challenges is "Sport" and one of our fab sponsors is Wags n Whiskers.  I chose to use this cheeky footballer "Go for Goal" as he reminds me of my oh so cute great nephew.  Coloured with my promarkers and the backing papers this time are from a lovely CD "Pretty Tuff" from Polka Doodles.

Do come over and say hi and have a nosey at the projects made by my fabbie team-mates
