Oh Bring Us Some Figgy Pudding!

Hi there my lovely blog chums, hope all is fine and well with you today.  It's been a busier day here, dog sitting whilst my daughter and her partner go to IKEA, and then taking our old doggo to the vets for a bit of a once over, He is 15, and has some bother with arthritis in his back legs, poor wee boy

Anyway,  We have a super fun new challenge,  this week, at


Our theme is


Optional Theme:  "Oh bring us some figgy pudding"  (feature any Christmas related foods/drinks)

However we may celebrate the Festive Season, food and drink is often at the heart of our celebrations. Our optional extra for this challenge is all about those goodies that we always look forward to . 
For my own DT card I am using this adorable pre-coloured image from LOTV,  The sentiment is also from LOTV. I am using Nitwit papers.. I have been trying to keep many of my Christmas cards fairly flat, this year, for easy postage.

Think Pink, with The Cuties

 Hello there my lovely blog chums.....I do hope that you're having a good week so far. We had a short trip to Yorkshire, last weekend to take the opportunity to visit my S.I.L and her husband. We made a point of going out for dinner on Sunday and having a Roast Turkey Dinner, so I guess for me, Christmas has already started,  lol! 

But for now, back to October and our new 


Our theme this time is always poignant at this time of year as we


Our lovely sponsors are 

Who have a fabulous digi stamp prize for our lucky winner 

For my own DT card I am using Working hard Winnie, and have used Promarkers to colour. The polka dot paper and the pretty flowery paper are from an older stack that I think I purchased from The Range. The green patterned paper was a magazine freebie. I used a faux stitched square die for matting and layering. I also used a small scalloped edged border die. I think that this super cute image could lend itself to numerous occasions, so I  decided not to add a sentiment at the moment. I can do so as and when. 

Whenever we have this theme we always have some amazing entries, so I do hope that you will hop on over and play along with us.

Use More Than One Die, with Crafty Friends

Hello there my lovely blog chums, I hope you've had an enjoyable weekend. We were at a church charity quiz on Saturday, we came third which we were pretty chuffed about. Yesterday we had a lovely walk out with the dogs enjoying the autumn sunshine.

So, we have a fabulous new challenge over at CRAFTY FRIENDS, and our theme for October is......


I love this cute little LOTV digi, which I have coloured with Promarkers. The blue polkadot paper is from Limetree Crafts and the brown patterned paper is a Nitwit download. So as for the all important create the two Kraft borders, I used a rectangular die, with a faux stitch, paired it with a scalloped edged die, again with the faux stitching. For a little finishing touch I used a pennant die with a little heart die. 

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