Valentine Shaker

Time for a new challenge over at A perfect Time To Craft Challenge Blog. As always the theme is Anything Goes

Todays inspiration 

Happy Mail

This stamp set from Time For Tea Designs is perfect for the current situation and has been so well thought out. I adore all the little stamps and so decided to create some designer paper using them.

It was a little time consuming but the effect is fabulous 

Grumpy Cats

I just love their expressions. They make me laugh with their 'yes' whatever looks. They have the same expression that my daughter often gives me. I have no idea where she might get it from...

Yayyy

I love looking through my stash and seeing things I have forgotten. I just love this little windmill. I always wanted to live in a windmill when I grow up! Especially one on a hill, not sure why that had to be part of the dream but it was.

Clearly Besotted Gnome One Like You

I popped to the local garden centre the other day and discovered that they have a huge crafting section, so bought some Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste. first time for everything. I love how they made the cloud all sparkley without the mess that comes with glitter 

A Birthday Treat

This stamp set is acutally a autumn stamp set from Sassy & Crafty it is part of the pumpkin spice clear stamp set but I have made it into a year round birthday card

Polkadoodles Snow Image

It is Tuesday so time for a new challenge over at the polkadoodles Digi-Choosday Challenge Blog. Pop over and claim todays discount on digital images available unitl midnight GMT 

The design Teams brief this week was to use a snow image. I got this image before christmas and just never got the chance to use it so thought it would be just perfect. 

The UK is in our third lockdown so the sentiment felt just perfect. There are a number of people I want to spend time and I especially want a hug off my mum, like everyone else, my last one was March.


Crafty Christmas Club Jan

So it is January and Christmas feels like a distant memory and the next one feels miles away but I am taking part in the Crafty Christmas Club 2021 Blog Hop meaning once a month, I get to play with my Christmas stamps.

Birthday Wishes

Another card showcasing one of the fabulous prizes on offer at our birthday challenge. This prize is by sponsor The ArtsyStamper 

Snowy Day

When issue 211 of Simply Cards & Papercraft landed on my doorstep if contained a stamp set called Alpine Village by Paper Discovery and that jogged my memory about a set of Paper Discovery Stamps I got back in the summer. The Alpine Village contains some of the same stamps from the Travel and Adventure About Town Stamp Set but on a smaller scale.

This would be just perfect for scene building

Team Tiny Interactive Hop

So this is my first YouTube hop as part of the Team Tiny Group on Facebook. A group for Crafty YouTubers who have less than 1000 subscribers 

Todays hop is to involve an interactive card. 

I have gone with a very simple and easy interactive card as I often fimd people feel a little intimidated my interactivr cards as they are seen as a lot of hard work.

This one certainly isnt


Cuddle Buddies

I think we are all in need of a hug at the moment aren't we? This card is perfect to send to that friend that you are missing greatly because of the current pandemic

Mixed Media Background

I made this background for another project ages ago and just did not love it, so I made something different and this has been sat on my desk ever since. As the weeks have gone by it has grown on me and I now love it so it just had to be used.

Pop Fizz Click

It is ages since I made a card where the focus was not my colouring so decided to have a little play. I couldnt not add any volouring at all but there was certainly less than normal

Clearly Besotted Creating Chemistry

This adorable little set comes with some fabulous sentiments and so is not only suitable for valentines day, but for teachers and graduates too

snow man dance

These are adorable snowmen literally melt my heart I love them. One snowman is brushing the snow from the porch while the other one is boogying on in the snow.

Operation Family Room

Warning There is no crafting involved in this post.

Dodgems

Did you love the Dodgems as a kid? I used to love when the fair came to town as I was all for them. So was my brother, my other brother and sister though, nope they hated them with a passion

Todays card has been created by changing one of the stalls from The Greeting Farm Digital Carnvial set into the Dodgem house. This was incredibly easy all I did was crop the image so the front of the stall below the opening is missing. 

Gamer Husband

This stamp set is perfect not only for my husband but for most of my pre teens friends too..



Purfect

My no spend January went so well I lasted until 8pm on the 1st!!! Then cracked and purchased the entire January release from Clearly Besotted.

Cocktail Time

I used to love a cocktail especially on hoilday and the ones that were so full of rubbish and E numbers and dyed your tongue a funky colour were always the best tasting ones.

This stamp set from Sassy & Crafty which was part of the December release reminds me of fun nights in what now feels such a distant memory I sort of question if it was a past time or not

Winston Gardening

It is time for a new Digi-choosday Challenge over at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog.

The DTs brief for this week was use an image with boots. As a little girl I always wanted red wellies so who better to colour up than Winston Bear

Flying High

I need a few more cards in my stash that are aimed at the males of the species. So thought this stamp would be perfect


Thanks berry much

I had no idea if this would turn out as I wanted it too, but I wanted soft lines and a clean and simple design to showcase the extreme detail in this beautiful stamp. 

Create your own rainbow

A cheerful vibrant card to remind us that we are in control and can create our own rainbows

Special Friend

With the festive season most of my energy had been thrown into making Christmas Cards so I feel a lot of my stash was a little unloved. 
I stamped and coloured this fun and cheerful scene while I was watching the news unfold of the earthquakes in Croatia and our rapidly escalating virus numbers. I decided at that moment that this card had to be full of vibrant colours as there is enough grief and anxiety in the world at the moment


Day over Fabulous

We are celebrating over at The Perfect Time to Craft Facebook Group and there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs. This adorable image is one of our prizes
