Christmas Mayhem





Our house is aways total mayhem so why should Christmas be any different. It would not be the first time that the entire tree has been destroyed by a pup...


Tranquil

Little Fairwee here, is having a sneaky five minute rest and enjoying the wildlife

Spooky Forest



Autumn is on the way and that can only mean one thing. Halloween!! I adapted one pf Sandy Allnocks tutorials to create a spooky forest in shades of grey

Schools back


Returning to school Miss Anya. So my kids are both back at school now and I am hoping that they manage to stay open for the whole school year. I of course took the back to school photos, showing a very smart and sensible young man embarking on year 8 and a scruffy little sass bag that is about to cause hell in year 6!!

Lets hope Miss Anya takes after my boy


Autumn Snuggle

I love snuggling under a blanket and this little sweetie is the same, watching the delights of nature around her

Crafty Purple Frog Challenge

Crafty Purple Frog are having a challenge, you can participate on either their blog, Instagram or the Crafty Purple Frog Facebook Group. 

There is a great prize up for grabs

You need to use the same sheet of 6x6 to create a number of cards, you can use a different stamp set, however I chose to use the same one


APTTC

Time for a new challenge over at A perfect Time to Craft Challenge Blog and this month are sponsors are Sheepski Designs

Sunset Memories


A beautiful late summer sunset for Anya today, she has had a lovely day out and is catching the memories on her mobile which she is protectively clutching to her chest

Winter Robin

A Winter Wonderland background that really makes this adorable Robin pop using the Sandy Allnock Copic Winter Wonderland Course

Duckies

I was taking part in the #thedailymarker30day challenge hosted by Kathy Rac but decided to change this up a little and hit my pencils instead of my markers. I stamped this image with every intention of using my pencils. But if I am honest I hate them, so have moved to much smaller images. These little duckies therefore needed some marker love

Noodle Time


This little beauty looks like she is really enjoying those noodles sat in that noodle bar with a city backdrop


Mad Dog

These delightful doggies remind me so much of our last dog, she was an extremely naughty beagle named Indie, we did love her and she let a huge hole in our lives when she passes but boy life was certainly never boring with her


Mermaid at sunset

Sweet November Stamps have a new release out and while I was waiting for this to arrive I decided to coloured up m mermaids. We were staying in a caravan by the sea when I was doing this one and so it felt fitting that the mermaid was talking to Mr Turtle while the sun was rising. I am totally in love with that sky

Interactive Enchantment

Taken my inspiration for this interactive card from the Sandy Allnock Copic Enchantment Course. This was the first lesson of Sandy's that I ever took and I could not actually believe that I have created the piece when we were finished. This is still one of my favourite scenes and so I decided to change it up a little by using blue turquoises

Shopping Anya

I love quaint market towns with cobble streets and tried to re create this here, i had created the cobbled road though before I spotted the high heels. Maybe not the best attire

Promonade

Enjoying the last few days of summer, before back to reality on Monday morning


Fishes

These little fishes really stole my heart and it was this stamp set that made me determined to learn to colour water scenes

Woodland Visit

A little sit down on a fence while enjoying a stroll. She looks so pretty in her hat and sun dress

Employees of the month

Oh my these 2 gnomes will not be winning the employee of the month award anytime soon

Granny

It is ages since I have used my scan n cut but figured that a nice granny card would be perfect on it. I struggle to get a granny card as most are grandma or nannie

Ruba Dub Duck

Just splashing in the tub. These ducks are sure having fun. I sent this card to my swap partner for the crafty purple frog card swap. You can join next month by joining the crafty purple frog Facebook group
 

Coffee Time

These 2 adorable critters are relaxing on the sofa in the guest room enjoying a coffee and each others company

Moonlit Mermaid

This little scene was inspired by some Whimsey Slimline paper that I saw a lady use in a Facebook group and I thought oh I have the perfect mermaid for a backdrop like that. I have changed it a little but the general shape and idea is the same

Art Teacher

So this one took a lot of sketching and rubbing out to get the vanishing point right. 

Rainy Ducks

A group of Heffy doodle Fans have joijned forces to create a prize filled hop over on Instagram. Here is my entry. These poor docks are stuck in a downpour in the big city. This was created before the floods across Europe last week

Turtle

I saw with Turtles in the wild when we got married and as much as I am a bit of a scary cat when it comes to creatures, there is something a little magestic and elegant abput the way they glide through the water

Happy Birthday Mum

My mum has always warned us she plans to get old disgracefully, We tell her she best pick her home now then so I thought this would be the perfect card. 

A perfect Time To Craft

Well another month gone. When this goes live, I will officially be on my holidays and that means we are in the second half of yet another year...

desert island

Very nearly time for my holidays, I wont exactly be relaxing in the sun in a hammock but at least it is a different 4 walls to look at in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales

Twisted Gate Fold

It is so long since I have done a twisted gate fold card but felt that the water lillies from this new stamp set by Crafty Purple Frog deserved some loving

Hardworking Dad

I always struggle for ideas for masculaine stamps and especially when it is fir my husband and my dad. Here is one of the cards for my husband for the kids for Fathers Day

Otter

I am beginning to wonder if I will ever tire of this otter. Stood pondering life on a bridge over a stream today

Fly Away

Holiday season is upon us and Miss Anya is making the most of the green list but with no isolation rules, she is off on her travels. We go away on Friday and I daren't start to get excited in case we get track and traced before then

Fast Food

This is another stamp set I got when I first started my journey and I think I have only used it once. I decided to colour it up into a scene

Covered Bridge

This is one of those scenes that did not turn out anything like i expected but I do quite like it.

thanks teacher

Well we have somehow made it to the end of another very strange school year but time to thank the amazing individuals that have engaged my volatile daughter for the last 12 months. This is my entry into the Instagram Summer Hop for this week as to me the end of the school year always signifies summer

Otter Shop

This adorable otter is off to the shops for his new life jacket, he seems to have misplaced his, maybe he left it on the park bench (oh no wait that was my son and his PE kit....)

Woodland Frog

I wanted to try to portray our hoppy friend here in his natural habitat, sat on the edge of a lake in the woodland

Under Canvas

This would be me, falling over myslef in the sark when I decode I need the loo in the middle of the night

sweet Robin

To me a Christmas card that has the image of a robin on it also needed snow and  a post box

Long Summer Day

Oh what a thought a huge pool in the back garden to keep the kids entertained while I relax under a palm tree and sip a cocktail 

Summer Apartment

Oh my how wonderful would it be to live in or even rent just for a holiday a building like this with huge glass windows over looking the swimming pool. A perfect summer scene for week 3 of the summer hop over on Instagram
