On the nice list - Craft Mojo DT

Happy Saturday :o)

I've used some fab MFT goodies for today's Craft Mojo DT card... I really love this stamp set, the Santas are so cute!  Unfortunately it's out of stock at the moment, but hopefully Sally will have more in soon.


The sentiment stamp is actually all on one line, but I masked it (with a post it note) and stamped part underneath, as it worked better for the card.

I don't think I've mentioned puppies on my blog yet, although everyone around me has had to put up with me going on and on endlessly about them!  Me and the boys finally talked hubby into getting one... 'our' puppy and his litter mates have now been born, in 3wks we go to pick him out, and in 7wks we'll be bringing him home.  We decided on a cockapoo... they're very happy friendly dogs and should be good with the kids... eeeek, I can't wait!!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Monster Christmas - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone :o)

Firstly, thanks so much for all your lovely comments and messages... my scan is next week, and then hopefully that'll be the end of it and I can relax again, fingers crossed!

Here's a little DigiStamp Boutique creation for today...


Looooove this image, he's fab!  The sentiment comes with him too.  This will be perfect for one of my boys this Christmas.  I've totally got out of the habit of colouring, and I'd forgotten that lots of my pens need replacing or refilling, so it's not the best but at least I've made a start!

Thanks for popping in... hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Merry Merry Merry - Craft Mojo DT

Hello!  I'm back at last... apologies for my disappearing act for over a month (!!!), I'll explain at the end of my post.

I've finally made a card... this one is my Craft Mojo DT card, using some gorgeous MFT dies that were released last month.


I cut the 'merry' die in 3 different colours and cut them into strips, then cut again 3 times in brown and pieced everything back together... one of my favourite techniques, it's like doing a jigsaw :o)

Ok... now an attempt to explain where I've been.  If you're on any of my DTs you'll already know, and I've also had some lovely emails from some of my blogging friends... thank you all for thinking of me!  I found a lump, and the doctor found another lump, and I've been having some tests... it's been quite a worrying time, as it didn't appear to be any of the usual 'harmless' types of lump.  Thankfully all tests so far have come back fine, and I now just have a scan to go... hopefully this will be fine too, and then things can start getting back to normal.

I'm sorry I didn't post before, but I just haven't been able to make anything, my mojo fled... and I couldn't seem to make myself blog about it either.  I've now stepped down from all of my DTs except for DigiStamp Boutique and Craft Mojo, in the hope that less pressure will bring back the urge to create... and I thank all my design teams for being so understanding.

So, hopefully this is the start of me getting back into the whole crafting and blogging thing!  Thanks for popping in, and I hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Best Wishes Butterfly - Craft Mojo DT

Happy Saturday!

For today's Craft Mojo DT card, I've used that fab MFT grid background again, and teamed it with a Paper Smooches stitched tag and sweet little vellum butterfly.


I cut the grid die 4 times and layered it up to make it really stand out from the pink card underneath.  It doesn't show well in the photo, but everything was sprayed with Heidi Swapp spritz, so it's got a lovely subtle shimmer.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening.

Autumn Girl - Sugar Nellie DT

Hello everyone :o)

**If you're here for the Sugar Nellie/ All Dressed Up hop, please go to THIS post**

I'm here with my Sugar Nellie DT card, using one of the very pretty new All Dressed Up digi stamps.


Gorgeous isn't she?  I had another nightmare with the sticky copics again though... cleaning them really isn't helping, and I think it's because they need refilling at the same time as cleaning.  The refills are just so expensive though, and I need loads of them!

Oh well, moan over!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Crafty Catz - autumn

Thanks for popping in... hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Little Miss Muffet Challenges - anything goes

Hello everyone :o)

I'm running very late today... we had a trip to the vets with Bram (our elderly cat) as he's got a nasty sore on his back.  He's had antibiotic and steroid injections, and he's now sporting the 'cone of shame' as he won't leave the sore alone... poor love is very unhappy, crashing into everything and trying to walk backwards.

Anyway... I'm here with my card for our new challenge at Little Miss Muffet, which is a nice and easy 'anything goes'.


I love Chester, and it's been a while since I've used him... and I don't think I've ever used this particular image, so it was definitely time to get it coloured.

Apologies for being such a rubbish blogger at the moment... I've not been feeling well, I've got Morgan off poorly and now the cat's joining in too!  Will try to catch up with some of your blogs tonight though.

Hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Birthday Alistair - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello again :o)

**If you're here for the Sugar Nellie/ All Dressed Up hop, go to THIS post**

I'm back with my 2nd post for today, my DT card for DigiStamp Boutique, using a cute new character called Alistair.


I've used one of the included sentiments too... it's such a fun set.

I had a very bad day with sticky copics... ooh, they drive me crazy sometimes!  But I was quite pleased with him in the end.

Thanks for popping in... hope you have a lovely evening :o)
