Who have a great prize for our lucky winner. 

For my own DT contribution, I decorated a gift bag, which has now been stuffed with Walnut Whip sweets and will be given to my Mother as a wee birthday gift from our dogs. So quite appropriately I am using Winter Westie. The papers were an oldie magazine freebie. I used a pennant die cut and a faux stitched panel die cut. Finishing touches, wooden embellishments from The Works and some red ribbon. The pack of gift bags came from Home Bargains. 

We all love using our super cute animal images, so this is always a popular theme....I do hope that you will hop on over and join in with us

Hello there my lovely blog chums......hope all is well with you today.

It's time for a new challenge with PASSION FOR MARKERS and Kitty has set the theme of

A bit of a favourite of mine......the online store is so worth a visit!

I made my DT card a few weeks ago, after returning from a weekend visiting my in-laws in West Yorkshire. We'd had a day at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (highly recommend, btw) and I'd spotted a tree, whose leaves had taken a gorgeous pinky sort of hue. I don't tend to think of pink as an autumnal shade, and hadn't planned to use it on this card but I soon changed my mind. 

I am using one of the girls from this gorgeous set, and am using Promarkers to colour. The plaid paper is from a Nitwit download set, and the other two papers I salvaged from my off cuts tray. I doubled up on tags, and added a simple sentiment. Also added to the card is a pretty die cut heart.

Christmas, with CRAFTY FRIENDS

The Crafty Friends Challenge 

Our theme is 


so whether you've been feeling festive for a while now, or this is the first time you've thought about it, this year.....this is the Challenge for you 

For my own DT card, I decided to use one of my favourite images, not just favourite Christmas or favourite LOTV....But Favourite!!! I love the way this wee mousie is singing with such gusto, and it is always a joy to colour. I am using Promarkers to colour BTW. I recently purchased a few items from another crafter, including a border embossing folder that I am using here, I think it's from Stampin Up. This lovely backing paper is an oldie, I think from Papermania. This little pennant is from a cute little set, also from LOTV and I've attached it with a tiny brad. 

I do hope that you will hop on over and play along.....ooooh, and we have some fabulous DT cards to share too.

The team also got to play with this set from The Paper Shelter too. 
I am using Promarkers to colour, and just a basic fine liner pen for my Doodle border, I actually quite enjoyed doing this and I'm sure it will be something I'll do again. I went for a lush green and grey colour palette. Papers from Doodlebug and The Range. Sentiment from LOTV, twine from stash. 

I do hope to see you joining in with us this time.
