It's time for a Little Extra Cutie the shape of my DT card for
Our theme is

Our lovely sponsors for this challenge are our good friends at
who also, very kindly provided some gorgeous images for the team to play with.

  • puppy with envelope from Bugaboo
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
  • Faux stitched squares, faux stitched labels and heart dies.
I made this as a Valentine's card for my husband! After all these years we don't really "do" Valentine's, but when we were at the supermarket on Friday afternoon, he did drop a packet of Salmon fillets, in the trolley, saying "Lets have these for dinner tonight, I know you like them" .....which, for my hubby, is quite a romantic thing to do, lol!!! Said Salmon was coated in laughing cow light spready cheese and covered in breadcrumbs then served with green salad and jacket potatoes.....yum!

Anyway, back to my card, which I would like to enter into these challenges:

Thank you for visiting me today, I hope you will hop over and join us for this challenge!

Another U Fold

Good Morning my lovely blog chums......I hope all is well with you!

Work and family life seem to have occupied most of my time recently, and I've not had too many opportunities to craft or blog, but with nothing much planned for this weekend I am hoping to get on with DT cards, at least.

I was going to save today's card to use as a DT card, for a future challenge.....but knowing me, I would probably forget by the time it came around, lol!  This is the "other" of the birthday cards that I made for my twin grandsons

I used the cutest little digi from LOTV, which is obviously coloured with ProMarkers. I wanted to do something a bit different with these cards, and I stumbled upon the U FOLD, I found a couple of great tutorials, and really enjoyed trying it...will definitely do it again. I used a combination of papers from Limetree Crafts, together with star die cuts, a balloon and bunting die cuts.

I would like to enter these challenges:

thank you so much for your visit xx

Clean and Simple with the Cuties

Hello my lovely blog chums.....hope you had a great week. We were away last weekend, so I'm playing catch up now.

If you haven't joined us, at The Cutie Pie Challenge, there is still time to play along......

why not hop over and visit: My Besties Shop

I couldn't resist this absolute sweetie, saying her prayers. I have used ProMarkers to colour, and teamed up with a do from a older Graphic 45 stack, then added YNS gumdrops to complete.

As I said, we were away last weekend......having a wonderful weekend in Scotland celebrating my step-daughter's wedding, which was a beautiful day......and just enjoying the family getting together, I haven't laughed as much in ages. I have a couple of my own photos to share, until we get our prints from the official chappy.

The gorgeous bride and groom

I don't think we scrubbed up to badly!

Hubby in all his finery

That's all from me today.....enjoy your Sunday xx

Anything Goes with Crafty Friends!

Hello my lovely blog chums, I hope you're having a great weekend.

So it's time for a new challenge with
Our theme is
Our lovely sponsors are

For my own DT card I am using a stamp from the, My Favourite Things - Lucky Dog, set. This set was a gift from a lovely friend of mine, and is a little treat to use from time to time. I used a woodware paw print punch and a freebie download paper to keep the doggy theme going.

We do hope that you will come over and join us for this challenge.......

First post of 2020!

Hello my lovely blog chums.....yikes, we are nearly a third of the way into January, and I realised I hadn't blogged this year, yet!
I do hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year time,  Ours was quiet, but enjoyable nonetheless.

One of the high points was the first birthday of our gorgeous twin grandsons, Will and Alex. Their first year has flown by, and they are an absolute joy, neither are walking independently.........yet, but both pull themselves up on the chairs and cruise along like that, so I'm sure it won't be long, lots of babbling too, so I think we will have two little chatterboxes, lol

when they were born, they were delivered a couple of weeks earlier, and I never got to making New Baby cards for them so I was determined to make special birthday cards. Obviously I made two cards, I am saving the other one as I think the image will be perfect for an up and coming DT card, but this is Will's card. I had been commenting on a challenge card just before Christmas and I loved the U-fold style that had been used, so decided it would be fun to try........

The super cute image is from Gerda  Steiner (how sweet!!!!), coloured with ProMarkers. I used a combination of papers from Limetree Crafts. I added a variety of die cuts to set it off.

I have a couple of challenges that I am entering, but before all that I thought I would share a little photo of the boys.....enjoying breakfast on their birthday (Alex is eating and Will has the red cup)

So, onto the challenges......
