A very Krafty Weekend

Hello there and thank you for visiting me today, hope you are having a lovely weekend and hopefully feeling the benefit of an extra hour, with the clocks going back last night. I an doing a craft fair next weekend, so I've been a busy bee getting bits done for that (will add photo's later in the week) and trying to make sure that I've got a reasonable supply of cards to have with me.
I recently purchased this adorable LOTV stamp, Festive Post, and it has been used several times in my makes for next weekend......
I have coloured with the old faithful promarkers, the paper came from a Papermania stack, sentiment created using Zitpy-do font and doily, button and twine from stash.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
passion for promarkers - lets get krafty
allsorts challenge - Christmas
simon says stamp...wednesdaychallenge - use Kraft
LOTV ideas to inspire - anything goes

Once again, thanks and hugs for visiting me today.....I always appreciate it and look forward to visiting you xx

Perfecty Purple and Completely Cutie!

Hello, there my lovely blogfriends! Have had sooo many pc issues over the last couple of weeks ago, I was beginning to think that I would never get this post done, but in the absence of my own pc at the moment, I have managed to revive my daughters old one and I'm delighted to be here!
So this post is all about the latest Cutie Pie challenge, if you haven't already been over and checked out the latest challenge in the last week, then you may not know that we have now changed from being a fortnightly challenge to a monthly challenge.....such was the work load and trying to fit it with real life stuff like work and family. We have a lovely theme running for this challenge and that is
Perfectly Purple and Completely Cute
We are lucky enough to be sponsored by our lovely friends at
and Janet was kind enough to provide us with a super cute image to use for this challenge.
I have coloured my image with promarkers, and just a little stickles to make the fluffy bits look fluffy. The papers are both magazine freebie downloads that I played with using Serif to get the lovely purples, and added my own sentiment using Zipty do font. The gingham ribbon came from The Range and the lace from The works, also used the wonderful MB mittons die which first I coloured and was then just going to go round the edge with my white gel pen, but I got a little carried away!
My wonderful DT girls have made some amazing cards for this challenge, so hop on over for a look and to join in with the fun.
I do apologise that I've not been able to do any blog visiting, technology permitting I will try to make ammends

For my own DT card I have used an adorable image that our lovely friends at Just Some Lines, gave us to play with.........
She is coloured with promarkers (with Three main colours), the papers are from Papermania Capsule Collection (I have used Three different papers) The Three worded sentiment is my own creation and the Three pearls, Three flowers and Three card candi blobs all from stash..........Loving this image, as I ran a week of Coffee Mornings in aid of Macmillan Cancer Charity at work last week, and after that and eating soooo many naughties, this is the only type of biccie I can cope with, lol!
