All Creatures Great and Small, with the Cuties!

Good Morning, and thanks for stopping by! Hope the new week has got off to a good start - my Monday morning started a little earlier than planned - with a phone call from work at 4.55am!!! Megan has a summer job in our store, but is working with a team that has been seconded to another store which is being refit, and when it re-opens will be a Bunnings Warehouse - instead of a Homebase store. Anyway, apparently her alarm never went off this morning, and when she wasn't at the prearranged pick up, they realized what must've happened and phoned me to give her a kick - the poor soul was up and out in about 10 minutes! Fortunately, I'm an early bird anyway, so I've had time to catch up on some DT stuff before I need to think about getting ready for work myself!

anyway, enough waffle - more today it is our "A Little Extra Cutie-ness" Inspiration post day - if you've not seen it yet, why not hop on over for a nosey??

our challenge theme is
All Creatures Great and Small
and here is my card

We are lucky enough to have Two Lovely Sponsors for this challenge - so huge thanks to

Happy Fathers Day!

Hello there....hope you are having a lovely weekend, and making the most of this glorious sunshine.

Whether you will be fortunate enough to spending time with your Dad's today, or spending time thinking about your Dad's today - I wish you a Happy Day!

This is the card that I've made for Megan and Cameron to give Alistair today, 
I couldn't resist using this adorable James the Bear digi stamp and adding my own sentiment - using Unkempt Font. The image is coloured with promarkers, and instead of using a normal circular style of colouring, I kind of just dragged the marker to create a mor "woody" look for his sign, thought this would look great with this wood effect DP too, and finished with two wee stars too (as this card is from our two wee stars!)

have a lovely day xx

Thank you so much to LC for providing some gorgeous images for the team to use - I couldnt 't resist the Three Monkeys digi (although I only used one of the three, lol)

I had mentioned in previous posts, that last weekend I did a craft fair - to be honest, it wasn't the best advertised event and the turn out was disappointing, but still managed to sell a few cards and bit and bobs including a couple of the felt keyrings, that I have been making recently. When we were at the caravan a few weeks ago, I was discussing with my Mum, what we were going to do at this event and I stumbled upon a few ideas on Pinterest that I couldn't resist trying - I thoroughly enjoyed making these - whilst my sewing skills have plenty of room for improvement, it was lovely to have a go at something different....

thanks again for visiting, cheerio for now xx

Snuggly Bears!

Do you ever have days where you are rushing around so much, that you think you are going to meet yourself coming back....I do hope that you are nodding now, 'cos that pretty much sums this week up for me.......the bank holiday weekend, was crazy busy at work, I am doing a craft fair this weekend coming up so still struggling to get sooo many things finished and ready, Megan is now home from Uni, but is back at work with me, although on different shifts, and just as it happens most of Cameron's friends live in an area of town near to my place of work, and good old Mum is a free and reliable taxi service, so I feel like I am spending half my time driving up and down the same road!!!!

Anyway, enough of my rambles, I am here today, as we have a fab new challenge at
our theme this time is
Snuggly Bears
