Christmas stockings time

 Hi all,

It's the 1st of September so time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge and it's Heather's turn to choose the theme which is:

'Christmas Stockings'

I looked on Pinterest for some inspiration then ended up doing something totally different with some stamping and heat embossing with my stockings. Think they were from a Nigel May stamp set and the papers are from my stash. 

We would love you to pop over and join in with us over at:

Sparkles Christmas Challenge

                                                    Challenges:

Crafty hazelnuts christmas challenge-557 - Anything goes Christmas, optional embossing

sir stampalot challenge - time to celebrate

I had hoped to blog some more of my cards this month but as usual time has got away with me. I must TRY Harder....

My Dad came down from Scotland to visit a couple of weeks ago and stayed  3 nights with me and a couple with my sister which was nice. We enjoyed a nice meal out which we haven't done alot of since last March and Covid.

It makes these times extra special. I'm heading up to Scotland with my sister Karen for a long weekend on Friday to sort through Mum's clothes as Bob wants us to do it which is absolutely fine. A fine chance to take mum some flowers and catch up with Bob.

Hope you are all keeping well and muddling through as we do. Crafting sure helps.

Thank you for your visits and comments too.

Christmas Music time

  Hi all,

It's the 1st of August so time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge and it's Debbie's turn to choose the theme which is:

'Christmas Music'

The song 'Driving Home for Christmas' popped in my head so that is what my card is based around using my Studio Light pad. I haven't crafted for a few weeks since getting home from Scotland so I really enjoyed pottering with my crafty stash.

We would love you to pop over and join in with us over at:

Lots of Snowflake

 Hi all,

It's the 1st of July so time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge and it's my turn to choose the theme which is:

'Snowflakes - more than 1'

I used a Crafter's Companion snowflake die, a sheet of light green craftwork cards paper from my stash and a freebie stamp I've had a while.


Why not pop over and support the rest of the teamies and add to your Christmas card stash early. It sure helps me to be more prepared for Christmas.

Here's hoping you are all getting some of the beautiful sunshine we've been having lately. I've been pottering around in the garden and had a night away in a lodge with my daughter Shannen last month so it's been nice. 

I am currently in Scotland staying with my Dad for the first time since Mum's funeral in October. It's the first chance I've been able to get up due to covid  restrictions and my health so it'll be so nice to hug him at last. A special time indeed and I'm hoping to take some flowers to my Mum in the Rose garden next to the Crematorium too.

Take care my lovelies and thank you for popping over to see what I've been up to and supporting me.

Krafty time....

 Morning,

It's the 1st May and time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge.

Caz has chosen the theme of 'A Krafty Christmas,' so get your kraft card out and join us.

 I grabbed some pieces of kraft card and went embossing crazy. I had fun with it. My idea came from seeing a piece of scrap with 2 poinsettia die cut shapes and the word friend cut out so there was my card...... it just shows don't throw pieces of card away.

Just nice walkies on my scooter with Hunter the dog each day. Take care and I'll catch up with you soon. Thank you so much for popping by and leaving such lovely comments. It means alot.

Tag time

  Morning,

It's the 1st May and time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge.

Fiona has chosen the theme of ' Use a Tag.'

So I grabbed a tag, some Docrafts papers and my Clarity jumper stamp which were perfect for the other tags. A few bits from my stash and I was done. Nice to have a good play.

Hope you're all well and coping okay in these present times. I'm out this morning when this posts for my 2nd jab, 8.05am slot-nice to be early and get it out of the way.  Shannen is taking me to Hull for it bless her then a little Primark shopping perhaps. Thanks for popping by.

Clean & Simple time!

Hi all,

It's the 1st March already so time for a new challenge at 

Sparkles Forum Christmas.

 Helen's theme is:

'Clean & Simple'

so time for me to look through my Christmas stamps and time to play and experiment with my Clearly Besotted stamps and wreath die. How hard can a clean and simple card be????? It is 1 type of card style I love but putting it into practice isn't quite as easy but I did it and made 2...  and I was quite happy with them.


We'd love you to join in with us and why not start your Christmas cards early. It sure helps when the festive time arrives.
