White Christmas with The Cuties

 Good Morning to you all my lovely blog chums.....I do hope that this finds you keeping well and that you've had a good week. Its been a busy couple of days at work, and at home with Christmas preparations....but the big food shop is now done, just a couple of "fresh" bits to pick up later next week, the gift wrapping is nearly done...we even managed to squeeze in a trip to the groomer for the dogs! 

Talking of my gorgeous 4 legged boys, when we decided on the theme for the current CUTIE PIE CHALLENGE, there really was only one image to go for....

Our theme is

We do hope you will play along with us......

My DT card features the completely adorable, Mac, from Digistamp Boutique (very sadly no more). I used Promarkers to add the elements of colour. A few months ago I had to take my mum to the hospital for an eye clinic, and as I wasn't allowed to accompany her, I went for a mooch around The Weald of Kent Hospice charity shop, where I found a bundle of embossing folders, which I grabbed hoping there would be at least one or two decent ones and at least it was money to a worthy it turned out there were several absolute beauties, one if which I am using here - I loved the pretty border! I added a snowflake die, centered with a button, die cut mittens, and some gingham ribbon.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas With The Cuties

 Good Morning to you lovely blog chums! I do hope that this finds you keeping well and safe. It has been a worrying few weeks, as my part of Kent has the second highest infection rate in England. Aside from work, I am trying to keep trips out to the absolute minimum. Most people that you speak to now know "someone with or recovering from" the virus, and it has affected numerous of our family friends......its all so horrible, and I do hope and pray that as the vaccine rolls out, things will get better.

Anyway, its going to be a busy Cutie Pie week as we have our usual CUTIE PIE CHALLENGE starting today, together with CHRISTMAS WITH THE CUTIES running a little earlier this month,  so that we can squeeze a challenge in before Christmas. I will be back with my Cutie Pie card later, but I am very excited to invite you to play along with us at Christmas with the Cuties, our theme is 


Anything Christmas Goes, with the option of based in a Christmas carol/song

They also very kindly provided some so, so adorable images for the team to work with, and I could not resist Bella Bear Ice Skating, which you can find here. I used the good old Promarkers to colour. I had positioned this digi beside my own sentiment, which incidentally features Lavendula font. This yummy plaid background is a Nitwit download. A little finishing touch was needed, so I added cute little die cut mittens. In keeping with the theme, my card is based on the joyful Paul McCartney single.

I genuinely believe that this year, our Christmas cards will be more precious to our loved ones, than ever, and I do hope that you are enjoying making them......we'd love you to join  in our little challenge, and you can do so by clicking here

Christmas post.....and some very exciting news

Hello my lovely blog chums......its been a little bit of a quieter time on my little blog, over the last few weeks. Its been a busy time being back at work and getting ready for Christmas at home. I do have a card to share, and also some very exciting news.....I have been lucky enough to be offered a Design Team position with the amazing PASSION FOR PROMARKERS challenge......I have been bursting to tell you all!!! I will officially start in January, and I am already planning my first card....

However,  its a pre coloured image for today's card...this delightful image from LOTV has featured on a number of my cards this Christmas.
I've teamed it with a gorgeous gingham paper from Doodlebug, its a double sided paper and I've used this reverse side on the pennants. I've kept the design nice and simple and flat for postage.
