The Bingo one!

Hi to you all! Cant believe its Thursday already, and we are nearly into December - Christmas is coming around soooo quickly and i've still got cards to make, can tick another off the list though - this is one i've made for my parents from my kids and is also my DT card for the Bingo Challenge with Aud Sentiments
I have gone for the bottom line - ribbon, use the word Joy and die cut.
This very sweet image comes from our sponsor this time, The Paper Shelter, and is coloured, as ever, with the promarkers. The sentiments are my own work. The die cuts are the Nellie Snellen die that the image is mounted onto, also Marianne Snowflake and Memory Box fremont crest die. buttons and ribbon from stash.
I think this is quite an easy one to join in with, we love looking at your entries, so come and find us on the link at the top. xx

The One where the Cutie Pies got busy with Doily's

Hello all! Hope you've all had a smashing weekend and that inspite of the horrid weather we've been seeing, you're all keeping safe, warm and dry! It was abusy weekend for me, with my craft fair on Saturday - which didnt go too badly. Didnt sell a lot of cards but my other goodies like Reindeer food and pet treats went really well.

So, as its Monday, its time for another Cutie Pie challenge! We've got a lovely one for you all this time, as our theme is "Use a Doily"

We are sponsored by the wonderful Pink Gem who are offering three digi's to our winner, and also gave us lucky DT girls some adorable images to play here is my DT card

Have used a precoloured image called Faye with flowers, and have popped her onto a go kreate cut circle and a scalloped circle before placing her onto her doily, which incidently, came from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. The paper is  "back to basics" from dovecraft. Ribbon, button, twine and pearls from stash. The "sweet" wording is a small section of a cuttlebug embossing folder.

We would love to see you joining us for this challenge - if you're busy with your Christmas cards, then this is a perfect challenge too!

I would also like to enter this card into: cute card thursday - girls only

the one with the sheep and the wellies

Hope you're all having a lovely week!
So we're midway through the latest Aud Sentiments Challenge and that means its time for the Team B cards......and here is mine! The theme for this challenge is
"Use the word - Thank(s)"
 For my DT card I have used a bit of an old favorite of mine.....this adorable image is from the "Just for ewe" set from Pink Petticoat, which I think I bought about three years ago, but its those wellies that keep bringing me back to using it!!! Have used the trusty promarkers to colour, and have used a lacy circles nestie. The papers are from Lucy Cromwell papermania set (pink polka dots) and the other is a download from Sweet  Shoppe designs. The sentiment is my own creation using Tempus Sans font and a Nellie Snellen die. Ribbon and buttons are from stash.

The Cutie Pie one that was brown, cream and Christmassy!

Hi all! Hope you've all had a smashing weekend. It was another busy one for me.....I have just about finished decorating my lounge! It has actually taken me since about April, but to be fair we did have to carry out fairly extensive work to our chimney breast, and there have been factors like work and holidays as well, but its nice now to have it done (will upload photos at some point) and so its on to the next room (I have paint in my shed for every room in the house!!!)
Anyway, onto todays card, and as it is Monday its challenge day with The Cutie Pies and this time our theme is
Brown & Cream Christmas
Our lovely sponsors for this challenge are
Which, I think, is kind of appropriate for the colours of this challenge!
This is my DT card
I have used this adorable Mousie images from Floppy Latte, and coloured with promarkers and a little bit of stickles
The paper is a freebie download from Summer Driggs "boy oh boy" set
The snowflake is a Marianne die (which I am soooo glad I got - last year I was using the cuttlebug ice crystal die but this one is so much nicer, imo)
button, twine and card candy from stash
This is a little different from the usual Christmas colour schemes but we do hope you'll come and play along with us!

the storytime one!

 Hi all! Back to work for me today, sadly! It was hard work this morning getting the jammies off and putting the uniform back on, lol!

Anyway, its challenge time with aud sentiments and what we'd like you to do this time is use a STORY BOOK QUOTE as your sentiment on your card or project. We are sponsored this time my Sassy Studios, so thank you to them!

As you can see, for my DT card I went for the master of profound quotes himself, Winnie the Pooh! I think this is a wonderful sentiment!
I created this sentiment using arial font, plus another whose name escapes me at the mo!
The papers are "back to basics" from Dovecraft
Again, I've used the Fremont Crest from Memory box, with a button from stash!
