Simply Love with the Cuties

Helloo, thank you for visiting today...hope you've had a lovely weekend!

I was a very lucky me on Saturday, as my hubby took me on a night out to the theatre. We went to the White Rock theatre in Hastings to see Joseph and his amazing technicolour dreamcoat....and it was absolutely terrific. It is one of my fave  musicals having learned all of the songs at school (many years ago) then going to see it in the 90's at the London Palladium with Jason Donovan, and then Phillip Schofield.....have to say that Joe Mcelderry was a fantastic Joseph!

Anyway, onto today's card and it is time for 
A Little Extra Cutie-ness
our theme this time is
Simply Love
our wonderful sponsor is

  • You've got my heart - from Sasayaki Glitter
  • coloured with promarkers
  • papers from a Me to You
  • MB Precious hearts die
we have already had some gorgeous entries, but there is still plenty of time to hop on over and join in the fun!

Claudia Loves Christmas......and so do I!

Good Morning my lovely blog chums, thank you so much for the very kind comments on my post yesterday as I now go headlong into year 8 of Blogging! 

I am feeling very Happy that it's Friday - the company I work for (in the real World) recently changed my working hours, so I decided to look upon this as an opportunity to reduce the hours and days that I do and I now no longer work on a Thursday or Friday. This is only my second week of doing this but last week was brilliant - having the extra couple of days off, I was completely on top of the housework, the dogs had longer walks, I felt soooo much less tired and when I went back into work on Monday I felt much happier in myself and actually enjoyed the three days that I'm in. I also managed to spend time last weekend making a wedding card for an order (note to self - don't forget to take a photo!!) and doing a bit of colouring.....a little bit of which, is featured on today's card......
I have used Claudia Loves Christmas, from Little Miss Muffet digi stamps - isn't she adorable....and is an absolute treat to colour, so will be appearing here a lot more over the course of the year.

Today's card features:

  • Claudia Loves Christmas
  • coloured with promarkers
  • glossy accents
  • Stardust Stickles
  • Martha Stewart border punch - oldie, can't recall the name
  • sentiment created on Serif page plus
  • Doodlebug Twine
  • magazine freebie paper
  • button from stash
I would like to enter these challenges:
In the Pink - Dies/Punches (only the one punch used, but hoping that the Pinkness makes us for it!)
ABC Christmas Challenge - C & D creature and dimension - my Creature name also starts with a C and I hope that the button adds Dimension

Cheerio for now, and have a lovely day xx

7 Today!

Hi, hope you're having a great week so far!

I am having a little Celebration here, as today is my...........

It doesn't seem like that long ago, that I was on a week off from work, quite a few of my friends from the Docrafts forum were already blogging, so I decided to take the plunge - and I am so happy that I did!!! This little part of my PC has become such an important part of my life, over these years my life has seen some incredibly happy times, and then some not so happy times too but blogging has been a constant, and in a weird cyber-y sort of way has been an arm around my shoulder throughout. When I first started I never thought I'd be "brave" enough to enter a blog challenge - but I did, and it was fab and eventually I even won one, then I never thought I'd be "good enough" to be offered a Design Team position, but I did get the offer of a spot - and then another one shortly after, I'm sure my 7 years ago brain, would have exploded at the thought of running TWO challenges -  and yet here we are now with the Cutie Pie challenge doing fantastically well and even getting a mention in Papercraft Inspirations magazine and Christmas with the Cuties growing in popularity and just about to have challenge #3. I have been fortunate and blessed to have made some amazing and wonderful friends, through this world of blogging,,,,,and if I could have one wish I would visit you all in person to give you the biggest of hugs, but I hope you will accept my Thanks and virtual hugs. Thank you also to this little blog for being more than a URL to me.

 My blog name sums me up perfectly, I am very much One Happy Little Crafter - and I have much to be Happy about and Thankful for.

There really was only one theme I could use for today's card..........

Today's card features:
  • Dan with flowers, from Digistamp Boutique
  • coloured with promarkers
  • older papers from stash - not entirely sure of "make"
  • ribbons from stash
  • sentiment from LC designs
  • Dovecraft acrylic dome stickers

I would like to enter:
Thank you for stopping by today, and also if you have ever visited me over the last 7 years - your vists, lovely comments and support mean the world to me xx
