You'll Find Me In The Garden, with PASSION FOR MARKERS

 Hello there my lovely blog chums, I hope that this finds you well. Did you have a good weekend? I had a lovely Saturday afternoon out with my daughter then my Mother came to 6s for dinner on Sunday. I was thoroughly spoiled by my daughter who made me a wonderful Mother's Day goodie bag with Pyjamas, Ferrero Rocher, socks, a candle and matching Reed diffuser, and an Adam Kay book....she is a very thoughtful soul, and I am blessed to have her as my daughter. 

Anyway, back to today and it's time for a new challenge at

They also provided some completely adorable images for the team to work with and I couldn't resist this very handsome Gnome, which you can find here. I made this card for my son to send to my mother. So kept the design fairly simple. I am using Promarkers to colour, the sentiment is my own creation. I am using an offcut from my bits and bobs box with a pretty border die.....and that's about it!

Christmas Post

 Hello, lovely blog chums.......I hope you are well. 

I was awake quite early this morning,  so I had a little time to finish this card before work. 

The design itself is based on a challenge, but more of that further down. I am using the very sweet Christmas Post pre coloured digi from LOTV, I will probably add a more personalised sentiment later. The red paper is from a very old Docrafts stack, and the other is a remnant. I added a middle section with a faux stitched die, and a wee die cut circle and button. 

So, I would like to enter these challenges:

Lil Red Wagon Let it B

12 Months of Christmas linkup anything goes,  with optional things with wings (Robin on the branch)

The Holly and Ivy Challenge #110 anything goes

Feminine cards at PASSION FOR MARKERS

 Hello again,  my lovely blog chums

So it's time for a new challenge, at PASSION FOR MARKERS 

and Marie has set the theme of 


Our lovely sponsors are 

Who also provided gorgeous images for the team to work with. I am using Petals. I am using Promarkers to colour. The papers are from an old Dovecraft stack, I think and I thought a mini doily would sit well with this pretty paper. The gingham ribbon  is from Hobbycraft, and I have edged it here, with a kind of sticky backed paper lace. I then added a simple sentiment, a couple of die cut flowers and enamel dots to finish.

This is always a popular theme, with so much scope, so I do hope that you will hop on over and play along with us....also check out the other fabulous DT cards.

The Crafty Friends are back!!!

 Hello there my lovely blog chums,

Àfter a little bit of a break, I am delighted to tell you that, The Crafty Friends Challenge is once again, up and running! 

We kick off with a theme, that is perfect for the time of year

🌸 Flowers 🌸

Gone for something slightly different on my DT card.....I often veer towards CAS style - but - no stamped image, oh my goodness!!! I really enjoy working with DL sized cards, and decided to use this gorgeous gingham  as background and also to Die cut my flowers. The central panel was made with a Sue Wilson die that I got for Christmas. I have added a die cut sentiment, flowery buttons and twine to complete.

I do hope that you will hop on over and play along with us.....
