The Uniko challenge this month is 'Anything Goes with a Love Twist".
Seeing as it's not too far off Valentine's Day, I've gone 'lovey dovey'!

Hope you have a fun weekend planned.

It's my birthday, so I'm really looking forward to it!

I need to make a card for my son's imminent birthday, but thought this week's colour combo over at CAS Colours & Sketches was more suited to a feminine card. 

They aren't colours I would normally put together but I was pleasantly surprised to see how well they work. 

Why not join in on the action? 
You can link up your card HERE

Meanwhile, I'm off to bake and ice a birthday cake for my elder son's birthday tomorrow ... 
Oh yes, and make him a birthday card! 

January is just one long month of birthdays, cards, cake and celebrations in our household. 

It's fabulous! 


It's my husband's birthday today, so it's fitting that this week's card for the CAS Colours & Sketches is the one I made for his special day!  

It would be great to see your entries for Challenge #205.
You can join in the fun HERE.

I'm off to eat a slice of hubbie's birthday cake ...

Happy 2017!

I'm delighted to have been invited to guest design for CAS Colours & Sketches this month :)

For the first challenge of the New Year, we have a colour challenge for you:

A fresh, light and airy combo (don't you think?) after the rich opulence of the recent festivities.

You can link up with the challenge HERE.

I look forward to seeing your entries!
Here's wishing you a fun-filled and healthy 2017.

SU Only Challenge wants circles/ovals and squares.





Some more last minute Xmas card deliveries that I'd forgotten ...



HappyLittleStampers want Christmas wreaths.




It's a quick post today .. Lots to do!

Happy Christmas Eve everyone!


After last month's festive release, the Uniko Design Team are revisiting a current stamp set for December's inspiration.

This month we are playing with "Stunning Snowflakes" - very apt for Christmas cards
(not that we've had any flurries of snow recently, but hey ho!).

I do love this set and turn to it frequently for quick and easy Christmas cards.
Talking of which I need to crack on as I've got 20 more to make!

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning this set for yourself, join in on the DT bloghop, commenting on the way.
First up is Bev HERE.

You have until midnight on Sunday 18 December.
What are you waiting for?!

Hope you have a peaceful Sunday planned.


It's that time of year and there are many Holiday and Christmas themed card-making challenges!
I'm linking up with Uniko, AAAcards and the Card Concept.



Have you decked the halls in your home yet?!

Festive wishes




Using CAS Colours & Sketches' inspiration.

I turned the sketch on its side for my row of festive trees!

ABC Christmas challenge is for 'criss cross'.



Must dash - supposed to be at work in half an hour - oops!

Happy Wednesday everyone!







Using this week's FreshlyMadeSketch.



We are dog sitting 2 extra dogs this weekend so it's a fun-filled household.

All 3 are currently snoring in various beds recharging their batteries before the next session of play and tousle ...

I think my 9 month old Alfie will be all sparked out next week when his mates go home!

Hope you and yours are all having fun.






Yes we're well on the way to the most wonderful time of the year;

if you love Christmas festivities that is!
