Something Snowy, at CWTC

Hello my lovely blog chums....hope you've had a lovely weekend. I'm not a huge fan of days out on a bank holiday weekend, so I've busied myself at home, although I did get up super early yesterday morning to do a boot fair. Just to clear out old shoes, clothes and general shed clutter. I didn't do too badly,  so I am going to treat myself to a little crafty something.....any suggestions?????

Anyway, its time for a lovely new challenge at 


And our theme, this time is


How you show us your "snowy" is entirely your choice.....for my own DT card, I opted for a snow covered post box on this adorable Penny Black stamp. I am using Promarkers to colour.  Also, die cut snowflakes too, from Lawn Fawn. The plaid paper is from a First Edition stack. Enamel dots added to sentiment,  to complete.

We now only have 5 more challenges, until Christmas, so it's a perfect time to play along with us!

Stars and Stamps with the Cutie Pies

 Hello there my lovely blog chums.....I hope this finds you keeping well and you've had a great weekend.

I'm a few days late with adding my DT card for our current CUTIE PIE CHALLENGE, but better late than never....and I've even got two cards to share with you!!!

Our theme is 


For my first card, I used this adorable Nativity scene stamp from LOTV. I have coloured with Promarkers, I added stardust stickles to the star, but unfortunately it didn't photograph too well. I used polkadot paper from Limetree Crafts, together with the Stargazer Backdrop die from Heffy Doodle. The sentiment stamp is from Taylored Expressions.

I would like to enter these challenges please:
Merry Little Christmas #51 anything Christmas goes
12 Months of Christmas link up #103 anything Christmas Goes, optional twist stars.

Second up, is the card that I made for my step daughter's birthday, at the end of July, and used digital elements as opposed to rubber stamps, this time.  I have used this image, several times recently, Superstar from Amanda Jayne designs. I coloured the cow with Promarkers, and also Paper Pieced the star to feature the sentiment, this was using a Nitwit download paper.  I also added a die cut star banner, from Your Next Die, to complete.

I would like to enter these challenges please:
Allsorts Challenge #741/2 All Creatures Great and Small
