Oh Christmas Tree, at Christmas with the Cuties

Hello there my lovely blog chums.....hope you've had an enjoyable weekend.  It started off as a bit of a damp, gloomy day yesterday, but as it brightened up the hubby started to get a bit restless indoors so suggested a late afternoon drive down to the coast.....well I'm always up for that! We enjoyed a bag of chips beside the beach before a stroll along the seafront....sunsets on the North Kent coast are always lovely!

Anyway its new challenge day at

 Hello there, lovely blog chums.....I hope that you had good weekend, and your week has got off to a good start. On Saturday afternoon, the hubby decided that he was bored and wanted to be out and about, so we jumped into the car picked up Fish and Chips at Whitstable, then sat on the beach to eat. We then drove along to Herne Bay, and sat at a beach front cafe with an ice cream and watched the evening sunshine turn into a lovely sunset. Bliss!!!!

So it's time for a new challenge with 


and this time our theme is 


It's a nice, easy way to add a sentiment onto your card......or it could even be the main feature.

I am using one of my favourite images from Crafty Sentiments Little Friends,  and have coloured with Promarkers. I am using a pink dotty card stock from limetree crafts, together with some green card die cut into patchwork style squares. My all important sentiment tag is from LOTV and finally I added enamel dots from Doodlebug, and a little wooden ladybird to complete.

Girls, Girls, Girls with the Cuties

 Hello there my lovely blog chums.....I hope that you are having a great week.  Its been another busy one here, as I am back at work following my thumb injury. Still feeling sore and stiff, so I am being cautious. Equally busy at home too, as we are replacing one of our garden sheds, next month,  and we have been able to sell the current one on but this has meant a thorough clear out, and so we have been selling on or giving away things that probably seemed essential when they were purchased but had cluttered up the shed for so long!!!

Anyway,  enough shed talk.....we have a fabulous new challenge with THE CUTIE PIES 


Always a popular theme, so I do hope that you will play along with us too.

Our lovely sponsors are 

Who have some fabulously cute digi stamps.....why not pay them a visit.

I am using Lilly from Crafty Sentiments, which you can find here I am using Promarkers to colour. The papers are both from different stacks that came from The Works. Two die cut flowers and a little button, plus a stamped sentiment to complete.

Favourite Colours with PASSION FOR MARKERS

 Hey lovely blog chums, I hope that this finds you well! 

You may remember from my previous post that I recently injured my thumb....its been uncomfy two weeks as I recover, I have been back to the hospital and no longer need to wear the wrist splint. It is still a little swollen and I am having to do some physio at home to improve movement and grip. It's not been easy, either,  to do much in the way of crafting and blogging.....fortunately I had made my DT card for this weeks PASSION FOR MARKERS challenge, before I fell over!!!

Our theme this time is 
Favourite Colours 
I love any opportunity to use yellow and blue together! 

Our lovely sponsors are 

For my own DT card, I  plumped for a super cute digi from Paper Nest Dolls, that was a magazine freebie a while ago.I am using Promarkers to colour. For my papers I am using a combination of a plaid digi download from Cuddly Buddly, and tiny dots from Doodlebug. I was very fortunate, recently, to be the recipient of a beautiful bundle of ribbon...from Crafty Ribbons....and I was excited to use one on this card.

We do hope that you will play along with us here
