Let it Snow

After a week of trying to get my printer to work I finally manage to print out this wee image before it finally gave up :-( grrrrrrrr .

This week at Sarah Hurley challenges we are sponsored by Limited Runs Digi's and I was very lucky to be given the opportunity to pick an image of my choice. I just love this little cutie and she is an absolute dream to colour.

Our theme this week is

Last Minute Christmas Makes

Goodmorning all how are we all? I can't believe it's Friday already, this week has just been so full on. Last saturday we celebrated lewis's 3rd birthday, it's great to see him all grown up but in my eyes he will always be the baby of the family. Isn't that always the way with your youngest lol. We also enrolled Lewis into our local nursery so from the 12th Jan I will have Thursday and Friday mornings just me and the cats. It will be rather odd and very very quiet but the perfect opportunity to get some crafting done.....I think I deserve some me time don't you think lol.

This morning I have my dt card for Charisma and our theme is
Last christmas makes

I'm always rushing about at the last minute, while wishing if I started making my cards earlier. So I'm afraid there will be some shop bought ones being sent but they are charity ones so I don't feel quite so bad.

Well I better dash, I have just heard two kiddies shouting a want a pom pom and that can only mean trouble, they're in my craftroom yikes!!

I'll be back later with my dt card for Sarah Hurley Challenges

hope you are all well my friends and a huge thankyou for dropping by during this busy season when time is precious.

Sarah Hurley Challenges

Good morning bloggers how are you all today? I'm afraid it's just a quick post from me I'm off to Glasgow for a christmas night out and I'm very unorganised. Why is it when you have a million things that need doing you end up having thee most clingy and demanding 2 year old. Not even Mickey Mouse is helping today and he is normally my saving grace... boo lol

So today there's a new challenge started over at Sarah Hurley Challenges and this week we are sponsored by the one and only Letraset and they have a fabulous prize up for grabs. All challenge details can be found here.

Our theme this week is


nice and easy..yeah?? So no excuse for not joining in and if your anything like me I'm so behind on my christmas cards hee hee.

Here's my cas card I made, love the doodling and the white on white. The image was coloured using my promarkers...of course lol.

Hope you are all well and getting into the spirit of Christmas wherever you may be.

hugs to you all

Charisma Cardz Challenges- Spots

Brrrrr it's bitterly cold this morning. My fingers are tingling and I only walked to the school and back. Oh how I would love a hot chocolate, not forgetting some whipped cream and marshmallows lol

Today I'm sharing with you my card for Charisma. Mr blogger has been very naughty recently so I'm hoping he plays nice today. Shannon has a great challenge for us, she has chosen


I used my beloved CB swiss dots embossing folder but if you would like to see more inspiration please check out the charisma gal projects here. You will also see the amazing prizes we have up for grabs and some new dt's on team Carly.

I used one of my fabulous Titania stamp from Sugar Nellie, one of many I received for my birthday but haven't had the time to ink up yet. Slap on the wrists for me then lol.


Sketch saturday- sketch
Simon Says- Anything goes
Fab and funky- Anything goes
Craft your days away- buttons or bows

I think I have only managed to make a handful of christmas cards. Every year I live in hope of starting them early and being well organised but somehow Christmas has this bad habit of sneaking up on me. Which is impossible as it's the same date every year, maybe next year will be a success lol.

Well I best be off, I stupidly forgot it's the first of December so the advent calendars are still in that safe place....wherever that may be lol

Take care and thanks for stopping by today. I'll be back later with my card for Sarah Hurley Challenges, details can be found here
