Return of the Mac!

Good morning my lovely blog chums, and what a cold, foggy morning this is! Not too much planned for the day, as Alistair will be back from his trip to Scotland this afternoon...I may drop in on a Winter Fayre nearby this morning.

I am here, today with a little bit of inspiration for both of the current CUTIE CHALLENGES
The Cutie Pie challenge,  where our theme is
Add An Animal (this challenge runs until Monday lunch, so you'll need to be quick)
Christmas with the Cuties, where our theme is
Show Us Your Santa Hats

The adorable Mac, was always one of my favourite images from DigiStamp boutique.....not least because he looks sooo much like my boys! I have used ProMarkers to colour, and have cut with a faux stitched square. I kept the design fairly simple, I love red and kraft together so added an  off cut of polka dot paper. The sentiment is a magazine freebie embossing folder, finished with a couple of enamel gumdrops from YNS.

I would like to enter these challenges:
We all like to dabble in other craft activities from time to time, I recently got a packet of Air Dry clay to do just that! I have been enjoying making a few Christmas decorations and fully intend to do more of this.....just wanted to share a few photos of my makes, so far......

cut and drying!

I have made wee Holly brooches for myself and the girls at work

 Christmas pudding, this was a bit more of a freehand effort

a doggy bone Christmas tree dec, in memory of our lovely Daisy

 another little doggy bone Christmas tree dec, this will be a gift for my mum from her dog Tilly!

Thank you so much for visiting, enjoy your day xx
