Happy Mothers Day!


I've not posted for a while.  My crafty mojo took an unplanned vacation!   It's not back yet.
So I had to improvise without it to make a Mothers Day card for today.

Here it is.

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges: 

Have a good day, stay safe x

Where does the time go?  Here we are mid way through February already!  It's been a busy month so far and there's not been much crafty time.

But I did want to try a quick card today! So I took my inspiration from #413 at Less is More.  The theme is More (but still CAS).

Here's my card!

Blue Monday


I can't believe where January is disappearing to!  And they say that today is "blue Monday".  I can't say I'm feeling that!  I'm enjoying some quiet time crafting today!

I was inspired for this card by challenge #411 OLC Off Centre over at Less Is More.  So I thought I would keep it simple and have a play with the "My Meadow" set from Stampin' Up!

Christmas Tree


Not much crafty time today so I thought I would do a CAS card and this time I'm inspired by Challenge #171 - Winter, at CAS on Sunday.  I stamped the tree then masked it with drawing gum.  I used Distress Oxide (Faded Jeans) for the background as I love the variations of colour it gives.

A little something


Second card for today is inspired by the sketch challenge SCC222 at Sunday Stamps.  I'm sticking with a Spring feel for this card. The sketch shows a bow but I'm just rubbish at doing bows so I've had to improvise a bit!



Happy Sunday!  It's wet and dull outside so I thought I would go for something bright and cheery!

A watercolour poppy!

I'm going to enter this card in two challenges: 

Have a lovely Sunday!

Coral & Blue


My second card for today. This time my inspiration comes from challenge #410 at Less Is More.  It's a colour challenge - great fun!

Celebrate You!


It's been a busy week back to work.  I'm so glad it's the weekend!

I've been inspired to make this card by challenge #354 at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I've used the new stamps and dies from Stampin' Up! called Bonanza Buddies.

First of 2020

Hello and Happy New Year!

I took a crafty break over Christmas and New Year.  Too many other things on the go plus I've been making a start at decluttering!  Although that hasn't included the craft room so far (I'm working up to it!)

What better way to get the crafty mojo back into gear with a CAS challenge from AAA Cards.  This one is a sketch challenge (#156) so I've kept mine nice and simple!

No Line Colouring


I'm having a try at no line colouring.  It's not easy and I have a way to go but it is good fun.  My card is inspired by challenge #170 at CAS on Sunday.  It's for a Christmas themed card so although I said I was done making Christmas cards, this one is an exception!

I masked the little Polkadoodles reindeer with Pebeo drawing gum and did the background first.  Then used a tiny brush and my ZIG clean color real brush pens to colour.  The gold paint is Gansi Tambi Blue Gold.



I've been inspired by the new challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch for my card today.  It's challenge #352 and it's a bit different.  Not a layout I would have thought of but great fun to do!  And great for using scraps of paper!

Sticking With Washi


Another card made using washi tape.  This time the layout is inspired by challenge SSC220 at Sunday Stamps.

Washi tape really is such a great crafty product. So easy to use!

Washi Wishes


I've taken my inspiration for this next card from the sketch challenge (#416) at Freshly Made Sketches.

Not a tricky card to make although fussy cutting is not my favourite thing to do!  The background and flowers on this card are washi tape.  I love the colours and the simplicity of this.



A change for today.  Not Christmas!

Christmas Reindeer


A week until Christmas! The time is disappearing.  I think this may be the last of the Christmas card makes for this year.  I'll need to get on with making gift tags instead!

Holiday Wishes


I'm taking a wee break from Christmas pressie wrapping to make a quick card.  Christmas music playing.  Christmas tree up.  Definitely feeling festive! If only presents would wrap themselves!

Little Christmas


I hope you are all well and getting well prepared for Christmas! I'm getting there (slowly)!  But I am looking forward to time off work and some "me" time!
The weeks just seem to be flying in at the moment!

I'm trying to get my head into gear for what feels like a mammoth task of de-cluttering.  I can't bear to part with things! But my mind is set on less is more! and with the time off over Christmas I'm going to start small.. and hopefully achieve big!

Crafty time is somewhat limited but here are a couple of Christmas cards..

Can't help loving you


It's been a mega busy week catching up back at work! and I can't believe Christmas is now so close!  Need to finish off the Christmas shopping and work out when to put the tree up!

I do have some Christmas cards still to make so I had better get on with that. But for the moment, here's two little kitty cats feeling all loved up!

Baby Powder trees!


It's been a busy weekend as we've been away for a couple of nights to a gorgeous cottage near Pitlochry which was conveniently situated next to a dog friendly pub!

It was chilly though, -6 during the nights and it didn't rise too much during the day.    The trees on the way to Loch Tummel looked like they'd been dusted in frosty baby powder!

 So just a couple of cards for today..

A change away from Christmas for this one!  Love colouring this little guy!

Little Reindeer


More Christmas cards!  I found a little reindeer die that I've had for about 14 years.  So I thought I would make some quick little cards.  I've got a bag of little scraps to use, including some vellum so I just had a play around.  All the backgrounds are Sahara Sand from Stampin' Up!  I think it's possibly one of my favourite colours.

A Sprinkle and a Spritz


Second post for today.  I've been staying with the poinsettias for these cards - just a slightly different look with the torn music paper.

Also a before pic!
