Let's Celebrate Kindness

Good Morning everyone,

This week Hazel the Boss over at Moving Along With The Times would like you to Celebrate Kindness, as today is World Kindness Day.

Grace is 1

Good Evening crafty friends,
It's been a long time since I posted in the evening, usually a bit dozy after a day at work. I am going to try and be a better blogger both posts and commenting.

Thought I would share a card I made for an order a couple of week's ago.
I used Digital Designer Forever Friends Celebration CD to print off the images after adding text to the balloon. I then cut round the image leaving a small white border which I raised using foam pads onto a white mat.

The backing paper was embossed using spellbinders dainty dots folder.
The name was cut on the silhouette.

I would like to enter:

Craft your passion-something beginning with B (balloon)
Let's  craft & create - Animal antics

Enjoy your evening!

Friday Sketch Challenge #82

Good Morning,
Spent yesterday at the NEC stocking up my stash. I went with my fellow work mate to get supplies and ideas for projects for our service users to work on. Can't wait to start making the samples.

has a fab new sketch for you to play with that Lesley has created for us

We have a fab prize too

This fortnight we are giving away a £5 Gift Certificate to Digi Stamp Boutique:

I have used one of their Christmas images, the super cute Waddle & Xmas pud. It comes with 3 more cute penguin images.

The papers are from a HOTP pad that I've had for a while but never wanted to use! The sentiment was cut on the silhouette in a pearly white paper with a black shadow. The holly was die cut using a Crafters Companion that has been glittered and small red pearls used for the berries. The image was coloured with markers then glamour dust was added to the hat and viva pearls painted onto the puds topping.

Hope you will come a play along with us this week.

Friday Sketch Challenge #81

Good Morning my lovely cratfy friends,

This post should have gone live yesterday morning but silly me did not hit the publish button.
I did not realise till this morning as I came home from work last night and thought I would have a little lay down on my bed. What a joke that was, I woke up this morning with a cold cuppa on my bed side table, no dinner or programmes. Must have needed it!!

There's a new challenge starting over at
with this fab sketch from the lovely Gea
I have used it rotated.

I was given an image to use on my card Two mice with a can phone, how adorable are these two.

The patterened papers are New Leaf from First Edition
The embossed paper was created using Hessian folder from Crafters Companion the inked.
The flowers and leaves are punched and die cut with a mix of gems and pearls for the centers.

Hop on over to the challenge blog for more inspiration. You have until the 6th November to get your entries in.

It's a White Christmas @ MAWTT

Good Morning,
It's been a long time since I last posted, in fact it's been a long time since I've been on my laptop. I've been busy decorating my room and building furniture. Then just as I'm ready to start moving in I go get ill! Sore throat & cold which has gone to my head leaving me with a pounding headache and blocked ears. I can't believe I have not made a card for nearly 2 weeks.

White Christmas
is the theme that the lovely Wendy has chosen for us this week over at
Moving Along With The Times

a true challenge for me as I have tried this theme several times but have never succeeded in producing an end product

I have used a cut file that my Daughter designed to cut out the snowflake on the silhouette. This was mounted onto a piece of white glitter card and a piece of card candi was added to the center of the snowflake. The sentiment was computer generated and mounted onto 2 mats and added to the card with foam pads.

Hop on over to see more white on white from the talented DT here

Moving Along With The Times
bet you've guessed from my title what she has chosen


Image - Cuddly Buddly, 'It's For You
Colouring medium - Markers and chalk

Sunday Sketch & Stamp #218

Good Morning,

Craft room update - 
Day bed has been put together, it's a sofa, single and double bed all in one with storage drawers. Went for this as I wanted somewhere for staying guests if I need it. 
The desk has a couple of sets of drawers that were out of stock so can't get that assembled till next weekend as they support the top. So hopefully I can start moving my stash up next weekend.

The lovely Francesca has made us a super sketch to work with this next fortnight over at
Is that not just fab!
I went for a CAS design using white embossed papers mounted onto red card. I used a snowflake folder from Cuttlebug and the dainty dots A4 folder from Spellbinders.
The image is a poinsettia in a frame which I believe is from DigiStamp Boutique but I couldn't find it in their store. I coloured the image with markers and added a little glamour dust round the frame and gold glitter to the flower centers. The sentiment was computer generated.

Hop on over the the challenge blog for more inspiration and get your entries in, I can't wait to see what you come up with using this fab sketch.

Have a great day!

Harry's One

Good Morning,

4 days posting on the trot, this can't possibly last!

I can't believe Harry is 1 already, I remember making cards for his birth.
I thought I would share the card that I made to order for his birthday.

The image was printed from the Do Crafts CD 'Forever Friends - Celebrations', I added the number to the rosette. I colour picked from the image for the backing papers & embossed the white layer with the 'Hessian' folder from Crafters Companion. The sentiment was computer generated.

Back to work in the morning. Where did those 2 weeks go?
