Winter Layers, with the Cuties

Good morning to you my lovely blog chums, hope you had a lovely weekend. Don't think I have shared this news with you all yet, but  we have babies on the way in our family again....the younger of my two step daughter's, and her husband had been trying for some time to conceive, and had three failed attempts at IVF, but then in June we received the exciting news that they were "forth time lucky" .....and with twins too!!!!! How about that. Her pregnancy has been going really well, and it's looking like they will be delivered by C section at the beginning of January.  This weekend has been spent trawling the internet for cots, and we've now got  two ordered for them, and yesterday we went to her Baby Shower which was lovely. I will, of course, update when we have two new little arrivals to tell you about.

Anyway, we have a super New theme for you at
and this is

So your card should either have an image that represents this theme or feature layers of papers or embellishments.

 For my own DT card I am using "Love you bunches" , by Sylvia Zett.  Isn't she the cutest, I recently found this stamp in a Dr Barnado shop.....and I couldn't pay the cashier quick enough, lol. I have used a border die, spellbinders fancy circle die and an Xcut fishtail pennant die. The yellow gingham paperpapers, and the gems are stash oldies and the ribbon was from The Range.

We would love you to hop on over for a visit to Crafty Friends.....We have more great inspiration from the DT to share with you.

Wrap Up're not kidding me!!

Good morning to you my lovely blog chums! Based on my recent form, I am pleased with myself for managing two blog posts in a weekend......maybe my theory that I DO actually need an extra hour in the day is completely right, and maybe we can change our clocks back more often, lol!!!

Anyway, over at Christmas with the Cuties we are a week into the most adorable....and maybe the most aptly titled theme, given how chilly it is this weekend, 

Our lovely sponsors for this challenge are

For my own DT card  I am using a gorgeous image from Lee Holland Illustrations Etsy store. I got it, back in the spring with this challenge in mind, and I have been bursting to share it with you all. Image is coloured with ProMarkers, I think the papers are from an older Papermania stack, I have used Memory Box, Precious Mittens die, the sentiment is from a Crafters Companion set that I found in a Dr Barnado shop. Card candi and washi tape added as finishing touches.

Once again we have some fabulous inspiration from the DT to share with you, so I hope that you will hop on over for a little visit.

It's been ages since I entered any challenges, so here goes:

Thank you again for visiting, enjoy the rest of the weekend xx
