New year, new home

 Morning all.  I hope you all had a good Christmas and new year and are ready for the next challenge over at Make my Monday.  We are looking for something 'New' on your creations today.  Well, as I am shortly to be moving home I am trying not to by anything new for the craft room so I've created a new home card instead.


I've used this digital stamp set from Rachel Vass Designs to create a monochrome new home card.  My intended new home will not look anything like this but I may use this one for Matt and Molly who are buying our house.

Ok, I'm off out for the day.  Please pop over and join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.

Throw some glitter at it.

Morning all and a happy New Year to you.  I wasn't sure I was going to be able to post for this challenge as I am busy packing away my stash for the move.  However, as my glitter card is still out - and I had the perfect glittery sheet I made this sparkly card for today's Sparkles Christmas Challenge.


Zowie chose 'sparkly/glitter accents' as our first theme of the year.  I suppose I went overboard with the accents as the whole sheet is glitter.  Please pop over and join in the fun.  

Thanks for reading.

Thank you

 Morning all.  Today we have the last challenge of the year for 2022.  Appropriately enough it gives me a chance to say Thank You for your support throughout the year.  We are asking to see your 'Thank You' projects over at The Alphabet Challenge today.

Here's mine:


This year promises to be a huge challenge for me and my family.  Now Patrick has flown the nest we are downsizing in a huge way.  Watch this space for more exciting news on this.  I may have to take a couple of months off as I pack up my craft room and adapt to a tiny craft space but I will still be crafting.

Please pop over to the challenge and join in the fun.  I love to see the inspiration you all provide.

Thanks for reading.

To Bee Continued

 Morning all.  For those of you who saw my gift box post, I have now completed some notecards to go inside it.  Which is quite handy as I needed a card for today's Cardz4galz Challenge.  For the last challenge of the year you can chose any of the previous challenge themes from 2022.  For my card I chose 'Things with Wings' challenge from February 24th.


I used the same papers as the gift box and I've made 6 bee cards to go inside it.  I will be giving it to a friend as part of her birthday present.

Please pop over and join in the fun.  I will be missing again soon (we've sold the house and will be packing my craft stuff away whilst I move in with mum for a few weeks) so it will be nice to see your creations before I disappear.  

Thanks for reading.

It's a gift

 Morning all.  Only one week left before the big day.  Have any of your created your own gifts this year.  Over at Make my Monday we are looking for gifts.  It could be a gift you've created or a card with gifts on it.  I chose to use this tutorial by Sam Calcott to create a lovely gift box.


I'm using the same set of papers to create a set of notecards to go inside.  Unfortunately, I haven't finished them yet so I can't show you. I'd love to see other gift ideas.  Please join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.

It's Snow Joke

 Morning all.  I hope you are keeping warm.  Much as the snow is pretty to look at it can be a pain when you have to go to work in it. However, it's always pretty to look at on a card and today, over at The Alphabet Challenge we are looking for exactly that.  S is for Snow folks.


I love the look of white on kraft so I just chose a couple of snowflake stamps and used white embossing powder on them.  I'm really pleased with the result.

Please nip over and give this one a go.

Thanks for reading.

It' Snow Fun

 Morning all.  Are you warm enough. I'm fed up of the white fluffy stuff already, aren't you.  It's great until you have to go to work in it.  Anyway, today we are looking for 'fun in the snow' over at Cardz4galz.  I chose to go with this Cute little fella from Lee Holland Art.  To be honest with you I bought a whole set of cute little Christmas Pigs.  I couldn't resist.  Merry Pigmas!


He looks so happy skipping along in the snow, he's got to be having fun, right?

Please pop over and join in the fun.  I promise I won't complain about the white fluffy stuff on your projects.

Thanks for reading.
