Something very close to my heart is my stomach! And today's theme at Make My Monday was always going to be a favourite of mine. We want to see 'Food and/or Drink' on your makes this time please. I chose to go with food simply because I had bought yet another digital stamp set from Le Petite Market on Etsy . This time it was a cute set of Sushi images. Mmm, Sushi 💓💓

X is for Xanthic - yep, I had to look it up too
Morning all. Over at The Alphabet Challenge we have 'X for Xanthic'. Apparently it means tending towards a yellow colour. Well, just to be on the safe side I've gone very yellow.

Morning all. Can you remember me mentioning a cute robin that I wanted to colour for my winter card but I ran out of time. Well today over at Cardz4galz it gets to shine. We are looking for 'Things with Wings'. It's always a popular one this one. I was just glad to find a reason to colour one of these cute images. I am totally obsessed with Le Petite Market over on Etsy. I've bought several digital stamp sets recently so you will be seeing more.

You know how much I love a fun fold...
Morning all. We would like to see your 'fun fold' cards this week over at Cardz4guyz. I really do want to find these cards fun. I keep promising to join in at Debbie's Creative Creases Challenge as she's such a supportive friend and has such inspirational cards. I really do struggle though. I even have an SVG template for my cricut for today's card and you really don't want to know how many I cut out before I was happy. Needless to say I won't be short of paper scraps for a while.

Big and little
Morning all. We have a new monthly challenge for you today over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge. We are looking for something 'big and small' on your projects please. I couldn't resist doing a little mummy and baby thing with this one and you all know what a sucker I am for Koalas.

I 'heart' Van Gogh
Morning all. Happy Valentine's Day. We have a romantic new theme on the Make My Monday Challenge and would like to see 'hearts' on your projects please.
I was really please when my son asked me if I'd make him a valentine's card for his girlfriend. In all the years I've been doing cards he's only ever asked for two. The other was for her graduation. Of course I was chuffed to bits and asked if he'd got anything in particular in mind. Yes he says and promptly shows me that he's bought tickets to the 'Van Gogh' exhibition in Brick Lane. To say that I'm a little jealous is an understatement. I did suggest he take his mother instead but he declined! I've been looking at tickets for the one in Salford but it finishes in a couple of weeks and I just haven't got time spare. Oh well, at least I can take pride in the fact that I raised a romantic soul and hope they enjoy themselves😒

Winter, brrr or grrr
So I'm running behind with my DT projects this week and to top things off we are two short in the office and I ended up doing extra hours tonight to finish a project. I'm on my own tomorrow (congratulations to Jade on your Graduation) so I know I've got to finish a card today. We have W for Winter over at The Alphabet Challenge and I have been planning a lovely card with a digistamp of a robin on it. Well, I got home and decided that I didn't have enough time to colour an image so I would cut something on my cricut.
Well, after several failed attempts and a codging together of some glitter paper, I may as well have coloured the image.

Morning all. I was so impressed by all the 'sparkly' entrants to my last Cardz4galz challenge I had some series issues just picking 4 winners. I'm hoping you are ready for the new challenge and can inspire us with your 'Kraft' projects. I have several Kraft patterned paper pads so this one came together really easily.

Love it Guyz
Morning all. With Valentine's day around the corner we have a 'Love' theme over at Cardz4guyz today. Don't you find that Love is a hard one for fellas. Well, if you need any inspiration pop over and see. The DT have a wide and varied selection for you. So, what do my guyz love more than me. Well, for the OH it would be coffee. But for my son it's probably sport. I think I come in behind football for both of them. So, here's what I came up with.

Going for Gold
Morning all. We would love to see some Gold on your Christmas Creations over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge this month. I went all out and found gold paper and a gold snowflake before cutting a gold sentiment. Can you tell the theme is gold?
