Hello my lovely blog chums, thank you so much for visiting me today....hope we find you well!

After a wee break the team at
are back, and we have a fab and fun challenge to start our 2019 season with.......

So, quite simply, we challenge you to see how many items that begin with B, you can use on your card which should, of course, be both Cute and Christmassy too!

Our lovely sponsors for this challenge are
All the info about the challenge, and some absolutely yummy inspiration from our wonderful team can be found with a click on the link above.

My own card features Baking Bears from Di's, they are coloured with ProMarkers, and I have chosen Blues, Brown and Beige tones to fit the theme. Backing paper from The Range, as with the ribbon and Bow. Doily and wooden hearts from stash. The sentiment verse is something I saved on my pc years ago.....and completely forgot about but I thought it suited this image perfectly.

I would like to enter these challenges:
aud sentiments challenge - Bingo (patterned paper, 3D item & ribbon)
cute n crafty christmas - christmas or winter

Before I go, I wanted to share a couple of pics with hubby had recently purchased something from Gumtree  which we had to go down to Devon to collect, and we decided to take advantage of the unusually pleasant weather and so we stopped off for two days in Dorset.....I have wanted to visit this area for many years.....and I wasn't disappointed. I am hoping we will return soon and stay for longer!

As a fan of Broadchurch I was very excited to visit West Bay

Any trip, to any sandy beach Must involve "name in sand writing"
