Candy Canes

 Good Morning Peeps,

Hope everyone is keeping well and had a good weekend.  We have just returned from a week’s holiday in Devon, we had a good time though the weather was very changeable, sun, showers and very windy at times.

Now it’s back to our challenge for this month at Christmas with the Cuties where our theme is:

“Take a Trip Down Candy Cane Lane”
(So let’s see your Cute and Christmas projects featuring Candy Canes or Red and White)


For my card I used a Bugaboo digi, coloured with Copics, the background paper is a very old one from my stash, I added a tree cut with an MFT die and added a sentiment and some glitter.

We would love to see you joining in with us this month and please take a look at the great inspiration on the blog provided by the Design Team.

Enjoy your day!

Goth Fairy

 Good Morning Peeps,

Hope you are all keeping well and having a good week.

We have a new challenge starting today on Fab'n'Funky where our lovely Buffy is host with her choice of:

I have to admit that this is right out of my comfort zone and I had nothing to use for an image in my stash, I found this Goth Fairy on Polkadoodles so hope it fits the bill.


I coloured her with Copics and the backing paper is also from Polkadoodles, I added a ric rac strip cut with an MFT die and the flower is cut with a Lisa Horton stitched flowers die and I added a sentiment.

A Tulip for You

 Good Morning Peeps,

Hope you are all having a good week and looking forward to the Easter break.  We have a new challenge starting today on Fab’n’Funky where our lovely Chris has chosen the theme of:

Feature a Creature
(Must be the main focal point)

I have made this card for my granddaughter Emma for her birthday next month when she will be seventeen, she loves all things mice (pictures, trinkets, cuddly toys, everything apart from the real thing then it would be screams and running away) but I think she will like this card.


The stamp and sentiment are by Trudie Howard from Sentimentally Yours, the grid die is also from Sentimentally Yours.  I coloured the image with Copics, flowers are My Favourite Things dies and the paper is from an old Lili of the Valley pad and I distressed the edges.

Our challenge runs for the next two weeks and we would love to see you joining in with us.

Enjoy your day and have a good Easter.

Hope to see you joining in with us this month.

Thank You

 Good Morning Peeps,

Happy New Year, I do hope you had a good one and a lovely Christmas, we’ve had a mixed bag here having to cancel family meetings as granddaughter Abbie tested Positive for covid on Christmas Day, daughter-in-law Mary got Shingles on Wednesday and son Tim tested positive on 2nd January.   My knee has been so bad I have been on crutches for two weeks roll on Spring……..

Well at least I could still do some crafting for our new challenge over on Fab’n’Funky which our lovely Chris is hosting with her challenge of:

Keep it Simple
(nice easy one to start the year off)


I decided to make a simple Thank You card using a sentiment courtesy of Hannilie (Desert Diva) and a very old flower stamp from a See D set and I added three small gems.

There are some lovely projects from the design team over on the challenge blog to give you inspiration.

Have a good day!
