Bashful bun

 

So I can not decide if Peter here is in the bad books and trying to win his lady around with a bunch of carrots, or if if he is trying to romance her, either way she is looking rather bashful about the situation. I am sure you would agree

Polkadoodles Eli

Tuesday so that can only mean one thing. A new Digi-Choosday challenge and discount code is available now. Pop over and claim yours here
The DT brief was to use a critter image and to make a flap for something.
I decided to create this cute slot for a gift card

Jumping in puddles

 This adorable duck was a freebie with the monthly news letter from Sweet November Stamps and I just had to pair him with the Fair-wee April who is also enjoying the rain.

I thought it paired perfectly with the sentiment from the Undercover plushes from Clearly Besotted

Fashion Anya

Our printer had broken, so I have been waiting for my new one to arrive, which meant I have only just got around to using Marchs Digital Release from The Greeting Farm. I love their monthly release as it leans so well to my scene building

Naughty bunny

I absolutely love the idea and the magic of the Easter bunny, as a kid my dad used to hide clues all around the house and he had to follow them and got a little piece of chocolate at each stop, finishing with a big egg in a place he had previously hid a clue. He has continued this on for his grandchildren and despite lockdown last year was no exception, I got up the day before Easter Sunday to a huge bag of chocolate eggs and clues that I had to hide and a zoom code and time. He had coordinated it so that all grandchildren had the same clues and could work together as a team on zoom. It was right at the beginning of lockdown and this quickly set the president for things to come. He retired right at the beginning of lockdown and so his ideas just keep coming.

This year lockdown is starting to ease and we are allowed 2 households to meet. I came home from work to find my dad scurrying around my garden with a note pad, working out clues and where he can hide everything. This year the hunt will be in my garden and my nephews will be here in person to do it with my children. Unfortunately due to the rule of 2 households the great Easter Grandad will be watching via zoom.


I totally digressed there, in todays card this naughty bunny has broken into the Easter harvest and stolen some eggs!! I hope he knows Santa watches all year round



Perfect Time To Craft

 Oh my another month gone!! Time for a new challenge over at A Perfect Time to Craft. This month our sponsor is Hungry Jpeg and I have used these beautiful soft lavender collection


Besties

Now I have coloured these beauties up I think they are in scrubs. This was not my intention. It was yo be 2 friends putting the world to rights over coffee in a diner. But the colours really make me think these are 2 nurses just finished a long and traumatic night shift and having a debrief over coffee before they attempt to renter civilised life.

Polkadoodles New Beginnings

 Tuesday again, my how these weeks are flying which I actually do not understand as we can not go anywhere or visit anybody. How did we ever find time to do that in the past???

Time for a new challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi-Choosday Challenge Blog as always the theme is anything goes and if you pop over today there is a great money off discount code.

The Design Teams Brief was new beginnings and pastel colours. Perfect for new grandparents. I actually had the brief when Oliver, my nephew was born so I made this card which I then sent to my parents.

Sticks and bones

Polkadoodles have rearranged their website adding in new categories and I have found whole new sections that I did not know they did. I love the Sticks and bones range and picked one of these for Martha's birthday card to give to Jack

Spring Polkadoodles

 It is Tuesday so time for a new Digi-Choosday challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi-Choosday. Our design team brief was to use a spring image and bright colours. I unconsciously lean more towards pastels and kept reaching for my favourite blends so this was a good time to push the boundaries and experiment

Saffron Sweet November Stamps

I feel like my colouring has really suffered with not having the daily practice while our building work was going on. The last few scenes I have done I have really had to think about, but thankfully once I started with this one it just flowed like they used to. Just shows I need to colour daily. A perfect excuse

polkadoodles reveal card

Gosh doesn't time fly when your crafting?? Tuesday again already and so time for another challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi-Choosday Blog. Don't forget to claim your discount code. 

This weeks brief was to use 2 images and a card with a reveal. This is a first for me, I have never made one of these before but am totally in love with the result 

Sweet November Stamps Fennick

I had to have some of the new release from Sweet November Stamps. I mean after all I am a girl with no dragons in her collection...

So todays card is a colouring creation, feels like a little while since I have done one of these. (My posts are not always scheduled in order of creation). My main focus has been trying to get the Craft/Games room painted so it was nice to take a little time for me.

Darling Buds

It is Tuesday so time for new challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi Choosday Challenge Blog. Don't forget to take advantage of todays discount code. You can find all the details on the challenge.

The design teams brief was to make a Mother's Day card which featured a wrap around band and an image from the Darling Bud Collection.

This meant I got to colour my snowdrop darling bud which I have not coloured up in so long

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

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. 

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

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
