We have another challenge for you over at Allsorts and it is the turn of the lovely Ellie to host and she has chosen the theme of....
Inspired by your favourite Christmas Carol or Song.

It is also the final Rudolph Day for 2017 over at ScrappyMo's
Now I suppose I could have used this card for R.D. but didn't realise that they came on the same day so my R.D. cards are further down

Our sponsor this week at Allsorts is Tattered Lace with this lovely prize.

A little lonely Robin.
Papers Kanban
Backing card Craftwork Cards

The image is from a Magazine years ago.

But really my all time favourite Christmas song is Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty McCall .... but try and make a card with that one, I gave up.

Now for my Rudolph Day card.
Can't tell you what the prize is yet as this may go live before Mo's


These are for my Grandson's Teachers cards
Gold mirri card cut with Lil'Inkers square stitched die.
Memory Box - Plush Poinsettia corner die - cut in gold and then red mirri card.
In-laid the red into the gold
The two flowers at the end are from Poppystamps small blooming Poinsettia.

Sorry for the long post but good to be able to kill two birds with one stone?

Have a good week and huge thanks to Mo and Team for another year of running the R.D challenge.

Allsorts challenge week 442 - Glitter


It is my turn, once again to host the challenge over at Allsorts and this week I have chosen the theme of Glitter.

This can be glitter card/paper - glitter glue - powdered glitter or glitter pens
Not gems or pearls, as the glitter item

Our sponsor this week is Baker Ross and they have this lovely prize for one lucky winner.

We also have this Tattered Lace Die as a second prize


Here is my card.

The stamp is Woodware - Flower Stems
Stamped with Memento - Tuxedo Black
Coloured with glitter powders and a Quickie Glue pen
Most of the glitter is Art Institute
The very plain green is a Pearl glitter.
The backing card and borders are glitter card.
Paper - Kanban

I did have a terrible time taking a photo, then I had a 'lightbulb' moment...
I took the photo in the dark, I think I had the flash on and it worked pretty well to show all the glitter.

Have a good week and thanks for popping by.

Penny Black and More - Flower Power

Good Morning, very rare for me to post two days in a row but it is my turn from the Allsorts DT to be guest designer over at the Penny Black and More challenge.
The challenge for this month is ....

Flower Power


I have used Penny Black slapstick/cling 40328 - Scented Beauty
I love it.
Coloured with ProMarkers 
Papers Nitwits.
Border die Poppystamps - Woodland Border
Computer generated sentiment with SU dies.
I also used the same ProMarker that I coloured the image with to colour the backing card and the border die so they would match the flowers.
It does not show here but I stamped and coloured the image twice and then paper pieced the flowers.

Thank you, happy crafting.

Allsorts challenge 440 - Blue and Brown

Good Morning, Wendy is in charge of this weeks challenge at Allsorts and she has chosen the theme of Blue and Brown only, but you can stamp in black.

Our Sponsor for this week is Digi Stamp Boutique.

Here are my cards


As I quite liked this colour combo I did another using more of a lighter brown for the backing and a brighter blue


SU label punch.
C.C. Designs stamp - Columbine
Sizzex die for the cut outs and some gems and paper from ages ago. Thought it was about time I tried them out.
The backing on the first card does appear to be black but it is dark brown could not colour the leaves in a darker brown as it did not show the details of the leaves.
I stamped the image twice and then paper pieced the flowers, it does not show on the photo.

Well we had our bonfire and fireworks Friday night so that is over for another year.
Please do pop over to the challenge Blog to see the lovely creations by the rest of the Team.
Have a super week and thanks so much for popping by.
