Good Morning Peeps,

I do hope you are all keeping safe and dry and not been exposed to any of the awful floods some poor people have had to cope with.

It’s time for the new challenge at My Time to Craft where for the next two weeks our challenge is:

Rubber Stamps - No Digis

I used a Polkadoodles stamp, coloured with Copics and decoupaged a couple of the flowers and added a butterfly from the same stamp set, the backing paper is from my stash and the sentiment is a very old stamp from a See ‘D’ set.

Hope you can join in with our challenge this week.

Have a great day.

Challenges Entered:

Polkadoodles Challenge - Anything Goes (28-02)
PearlySparkles - Include some Red (29-02)
Sheepski Challenges - Hearts and/or Flowers (17-03)

Love, Love, Love

Good Morning Peeps,

What a week it has been with the storm on Sunday, we had some flooding in the village when the River Irwell broke it’s banks, but luckily no damage to property, just some flooding on the roads and gardens.  Yesterday we had sleet and hail and some lovely sunshine!! though it was bitterly cold with the strong winds, today seems a little quieter and more settled thank goodness.

We have a new challenge starting today at Fab’n’Funky where our theme this week is:

Christmas ATC's

Good Morning Peeps,

I hope everyone is having a good week and keeping warm, it turned colder here yesterday and we had a couple of snow showers which didn’t stay too long.

We have a new challenge for you today on Fab’n’Funky where I am the host this week for our monthly challenge of Christmas.

I have used some Christmas ATC’s I made, sorry the photo is not very good.  The image is by JOFY, coloured with Copics, I added different colours of Nuvo drops and Glamour Dust

Hope to see you making a start on your Christmas cards and joining in with our challenge this week.  Have a good day.

Funky Flowers

Good Morning Peeps,

Happy New Year, hope you all had a lovely Christmas.  We had an enjoyable time with the family and a nice rest.

I have my first card of the year for you today and it’s for our challenge at My Time to Craft where our theme for the next two weeks is:

New Stash

For my card I used some new stamps from Polkadoodles and did some of the colouring with some new Promarkers Brush pens which I got as a Christmas present, I also used Copics for my colouring. The sentiment is a JOFY stamp that I have had for ages but I really love the words.  Sorry about the quality of the photo but the days have been so gloomy it’s hard to get a good pic.

Hope to see you joining in our challenge and showing off your new stash.

Have a good weekend.
