Winged Creatures at IAAS

 Good morning.  I'm back with my DT card for IAAS. The theme of Winged Creatures was chosen by me this time.

My Card

 If you are looking for my Christmas Card Club card
 please scroll down to previous post.

 I used a Hunkydory topper, from Feathered Friends I think, and made it into a 7" card. I mounted the sentiment topper onto a pink poinsettia which now looks nothing like a poinsettia. 

Please pop over to the blog and you will see the amazing array of cards made by team mates. It's great how we have all interpreted this theme in so many different ways - which is exactly what I had hoped for.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Robins for Christmas Card Club

 Another two weeks have flown by and it's time for our little group to post our cards using the theme Little Robin Redbreast which was chosen by Margaret.

Card #1

Card # 2

The first two cards are from Craftsuprint.  Last time Lorraine showed a card using a CUP image and it reminded me that I have loads of images and not used them in ages. I went hunting and this is the one I decided to use.  It is actually a decoupage kit but I decided, in an effort to keep as many cards flat as I can, to use the decoupage to make a second card so they are the same - but not the same. The first one is 7" square and the second is 6" square.

Card # 3

 My final card uses a digi stamp called Kissing Robins from JustInklined which I have had for about eight or nine years. It is such a cute image.

I hope you enjoy your weekend whatever you are doing.

Take care.

Winter Wonderland Peace on Earth

Good morning. Time for another challenge at Winter Wonderland. The theme, as chosen by Michelle, is Peace on Earth. We are sponsored by Sheepski Designs this month. 

My Card

This is a six inch black square card and I die cut a frame using Pressscut Stitch Dot Squares.

The image is Winter Deer from our sponsor and the stamped sentiment is from Little Claire many years ago. I then just added a couple of snowflake dies  from The Works. A CAS card and flat for cheaper posting.

Why not go over to the blog and see the rest of the cards from the DT and maybe you will be inspired to join in with the chance to win three images of your choice.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter Weekend.

Take care

Animals/Birds at MAWTT

 Good morning.  I hope you have been enjoying the beautiful weather the past three days  if you live in the UK .  March did what it's supposed to do coming in like lion and going out like a lamb. 

We have another challenge for you today at MAWTT and it is to show birds or animals on your card.

My Card


I used a fox on a Christmas card which makes a nice change. The paper and topper are from the Paper Boutique's "A Whisper of Winter.". The pine cones are from John Next Door.

Why not pop across to the blog and see what my teamies have made for this challenge. 

I can't believe just  how quickly time is passing. The whole of lockdown seems to have gone by so  fast - although my brother disagrees with me on that point. If people behave themselves than we can continue to take steps in ending the lockdown slowly but surely, so fingers crossed.

Take care.

Shaped Cards (no squares/rectangles) for IAAS

 Good morning and it's time for another challenge at IAAS.  This time we don't want to see any square or rectangular cards so be adventurous.

If you are looking for my CCC card please scroll down to previous post.

My Card

I used two different sets of dies to make my card.  The larger dies are from Card Making Magic "Happy Birthday Decorative Word" set.  The smaller ones are from John Next Door "Stamford" set and they coordinate really well. The patterned paper is LOTV/Nitwit Petal Fresh pad. The sentiment stamp is from the Notwit "Bloom With Grace" collection.

Why not popover to the blog and check out what the rest of the DT have made from this interesting challenge?

It is extremely cold here this morning but it promises to improve over the week so fingers crossed.

Take care.

Trees for the Christmas Card Club

 Good morning. Kate has chosen our theme this time and she has given us quite a wide brief. She wants to see trees, Christmas trees or trees in a scene.

 Card # 1

This is using an image I have had for years but not used for a long time. I just added  a little colour to give it a pop and lots of glitter. I mounted it onto silver mirri which sadly looks black in the picture but I wasn't able to get a better picture. I computer generated the sentiment and just added a couple of snowflakes but otherwise left it pretty simple.

Card # 2 

This is an upcycled Christmas card from last year but it was so pretty I decided to use it.  I cut it down to fit a 4" x 6" gold glitter card. It is not showing well but the trees at the front are gold and very pretty. I bought a pack of both silver and gold glitter cards last year very cheaply but never used them until now.

The other ladies will be displaying their cards tomorrow.

Here in England  from Monday we are all looking forward to meeting up with other people after three months, even though it is just outside. We are planning to have our first WI committee meeting for twelve months on Monday afternoon.  We will probably be wearing our thermals since we will be in the garden - just praying that it doesn't rain. 😉😂

Take care and enjoy your weekend.
