Christmas Cuties

 Good Morning my lovely blog chums.....hope you've had an enjoyable weekend. It was my birthday on Friday, I had to go to work during the day but in the evening I went out for a lovely meal with my family, which was a great evening - delicious meal, lots of laughter, a few glasses of white zinfandel, and even had the waitresses singing "happy birthday " to me as they brought the cake to our table! 

Anyway, its new challenge day at 


and its a very, very simple theme for us this time.....

Christmas Cuties 

We hope that you will share cutest Christmas cards with us

Our lovely sponsors are 
Who have a great selection of adorable images to treat yourself to, in their online store. 

They also very generously provided some gorgeous images for the team to work with and I am using this sweet lil girlie with poinsettia. I am using Promarkers to colour. The circular sentiment is from LOTV. The gingham paper is a Nitwit download and I paired it with a neutral toned paper from my scrap box.

I must confess, I had a few difficulties making my card, as I recently "lost" my varifocals, when I was out shopping, so I kept things simple and I think we got there in the end, lol

Anyway, if you haven't started your Christmas cards yet, maybe this is just the opportunity for you, I do hope that you will hop on over and join us

Keeping it Slim, with PASSION FOR MARKERS

 Hello there my lovely blog chums......

So at PASSION FOR MARKERS each teamie takes a turn of choosing the theme, and this time round -  its me. I am loving seeing so many DL sized cards around, that seem really popular at the moment, so my theme is 


 Our sponsors are 

Who have a great prize for our lucky winner and also provided this team with some fantastic images to work with, I am using Over the rainbow.  It reminded me of me, hubby and Harvey (one of our westies) and I thought it would make a great anniversary card for the hubby, himself. I am using Promarkers to colour, the sentiment is my own creation. The rainbow paper was a magazine freebie. I added a ribbon and bow.
I do hope that you will hop on over and play along

Hello there my lovely blog chums.....Its been a crazy busy week for me, aside from being back at work, we are also having some work done in the garden at home too.  I've barely had two minutes to I am enjoying a few days away and a much needed rest. We had hoped to get up to Yorkshire this weekend to visit family, but concerns about this latest variant led us down to the South Coast instead, and we are having a weekend near Hayling Island.

Anyway, I am here to share a DT card and invite you to play along with us at 


If you are making Father's Day cards, this weekend then this will be the challenge for you as our theme is


Our lovely sponsors are 

For my own DT card I am using a digi from LITTLE MISS MUFFET,  he is coloured with Promarkers. The dp is an oldie that I rooted out of the scraps box. I cut a label die in half to add a little detail, and used wooden sticky dots to finish. The sentiment is my own creation.

I do hope that you will play along with us.....
