Autumn Colours and Crafty Friends!

Good Morning my lovely blog chums.....I hope you have been keeping well. Things have been quiet here as I have been away on my hollibobs. We got home yesterday from a wonderful week in Dorset...and what a wonderful week it was! We couldn't believe how lucky we got with such glorious weather. We were able to get out and about to all sorts of lovely places, such as the Motor Museum at Beaulieu, the Tank museum but some of my favourite points of the week were the walks to the beach with the dogs....we had to follow along a cute little country path, which treated us to beautiful scenic views in all directions. The dogs are not huge fans of the water, but did paddle their paws a little...and definitely enjoyed their ice creams. I will add a couple of holiday snaps in my next post.

I  am actually here today, to tell you about our great new challenge with 

The Crafty Friends 

Our theme this time, is more what you'd expect to see at this time of year 


Using this colour palette, of perfect shades of the season 

Our lovely sponsors for this challenge are 

Who provided some super cute images as well as some gorgeous digi papers to work with.....I thoroughly enjoyed making my DT card.

I am using a digi from All Dressed Up, alongside their printable paper. Image coloured with Promarkers. Lace and wooden embellishment added to add to rustic feel. Sentiment tag from LOTV.

We hope that you will hop on over and join us

Very Elf-y

Hello my lovely blog chums.....hope you've had a great week. 
Still none the wiser here, about returning to work, but I'm trying to make the most of the time off, before I find myself settling the alarm, for a painfully early start. 

I have a fairly, respectable box of Christmas cards now, although I am always keen to add to it....especially with such a gorgeous image!
This is from Fred, she said.....isn't she cute!!! She has put me in mind to watch Elf, and now we are settled into September, its kind of pre-Christmas, so perfectly acceptable to watch it, right!? Anyway, she is coloured with Promarkers. The holly paper came from a Papermania stack. The sentiment is a LOTV digi.

The one with the twinkly tree

Hello there my lovely blog chums......hope you're having a great week, so far. Our children are heading back to school this week, and that certainly applies to my lovely daughter, as today is her first day as a newly qualified teacher. I think, under any circumstances, this would be an apprehensive time but in the current climate there are lots of additional challenges.....we have had to reassure her that she can, absolutely do this!!!!

So I have another Christmas card to share today.....a little reminder about the current Christmas with the Cuties Challenge, where our theme is 

this little chap is doing a cracking job of dressing the tree, so I also had the Fezziwigs Festive Frolics "Santa's Little Helper" challenge in mind.
This is another adorable digi from LOTV, as is the sentiment.  I have used Promarkers to colour, with the sparkly addition of some stickles glitter glue to add my bling. The dp was a magazine freebie.
