Ribbons and Rubber Stamps

 Hello again, my lovely blog chums, I  hope you're enjoying the weekend.  I have been having a huge problem with my laptop - stupid thing doesn't even want to switch on now, grrrrrr! It had been playing up when I was preparing this post, which hasn't appeared to have actually gone live, so I'm trying again on my tablet.

Anyway,  we have a fabulous theme at

 The Cutie Pie Challenge

We want to see your cutest Creations using 


Our lovely sponsors are 
Who have a fabulous prize for our lucky winner 

I am using a super cute Penny Black Christmas Hedgie stamp, which I have coloured with Promarkers. My stamping ink, if choice is a Catherine Pooler. The sentiment is from LOTV. I created a border with a fancy die and added gingham ribbon. It feels a little odd putting together a Christmas card at the moment, but apparently my Mother has put my name down for a table at her church Autum fair, so I thought I'd better think festive.

I would also like to enter these challenges please:

Summer Colours with Crafty Friends

 Hello there my lovely blog chums.....hope that this finds you well. Doesn't seem possible that we are now in August,how this year is flying by!

And as its the first of the month, its time for a new challenge with 


our theme for August is 


I chose this flowery colour scheme as my daughter had recently got a dress for a wedding reception in a very similar print. The papers are from a stack from The Range.  This gorgeous owl is from Pink Gem. I added a sentiment tag, a wooden flower embellishment and a couple of enamel dots. After much pestering from my kids I have recently taken the plunge to use Tiktok, and I have seen a couple of videos on there featuring cards with a folded over corner,  so I thought I'd have a bash at it too.

Anyway,  I do hope that you will hop on over and play along,  we have some fabulous inspiration from the team to share too xx
