Hello everyone, I hope you are well and having a good week. Dorset is still gripped by the cold weather although all the snow has gone.
Anyway, to balance the cold  weather I have a really bright and jolly little card to share today.

She is Anita from Sasayaki Glitter. 

I took inspiration from a fabulous Doodlebug Designs pad and coloured her with Promarkers adding a touch of detail to her hair with pencil . I used my Concord and 9th Beautiful Branches sentiment stamps, which worked really well.

That is me for today. Hope to see you soon xx

Icy Breeze

Hello my lovely blogging buddies. Hope you are keeping well. 

My post title seems rather appropriate following the return of the bitterly cold wind and snowfall that we had here over the weekend, but it really is the name of the paper collection that I used for today's card.

 I must say a special thank you to Pauline who I blame entirely for steering me in the direction of this fab papercrafting pack!!

Before I go I have a snowy scene to share which I took on Sunday.  I said that after Hubby's accident a fortnight ago that I wouldn't ever wish for snow again but, I have to say, that it was lovely to enjoy a snowy walk together and I am sure it will be many years before we see more!!

There is very little left now.

See you soon xx

AYLI - Easter Creatures

My word these weeks are flying by and it is time for another new challenge at

With Easter only a few weeks away we would like to see your project showing your favourite Easter animal.

I was torn between rabbits and chicks and the chicks won, only because of my new Lawn Fawn stamps and dies!!

I made lots of these for my work colleagues.

I used Promarkers to colour these little guys.

So, that's my inspiration for you, a bit of CAS for a change and they were incredibly quick to put together.

Hope to see your Easter projects xx

Spring Cuties

Hello, Hello!! I hope you had a good weekend. I have that "Monday feeling" but the rate at which the year is flying by it will soon be the weekend again so never mind!!

It is time for the next challenge at

and we would love to see your cards showing cute spring characters.
I used Spring Friends from our sponsor Bugaboo, and you can't get more spring than lambs and bunnies!!

They were coloured with Promarkers to match the pretty LOTV papers
(now retired). I gave the bunny a fluffy chest using flowersoft.

Well that is me for today. Hope you have a good week xx

Singing Bird

Hello everyone.
 First of all I would just like to thank you for your kind words for my Husband. He is feeling much better now and his head is healing quite nicely, although I try not to look too closely....eewwww!!

Anyway, less of that!! I am sharing a sweet image called
Singing Bird today. She is one of Naz's older images and a little less cute than normal.

I dug out an old Papermania pack and went with a blue colour scheme for a change and also went a bit flouncy!! I attempted an ombre effect with my Promarkers, which actually looks better in real life.

I hope my UK followers and visitors are now snow free and getting back to normal. We now have water everywhere but at least the temperatures are a little kinder than a week ago. Better go, I have four eyes looking at me expectantly as it's time my little helpers and I to put Surprise to bed!!

See you soon xx
