New Year Celebrations...

Afternoon lovelies, well have you all recovered from Christmas? I haven't I can assure you! lol

Quick post today, Its time for a new challenge over at Tilda's Town, and the theme this week is 'New Year Celebrations'

Now I had a bit of a panic this week as I wasn't sure if I had a tilda that would suit but after looking through a lot of my stamps I remembered about this cutie, Celebration Tilda

And I had the idea of sitting her on Tim Hotlz's weathered clock, and yaaay it worked!

So here is my card, hope you like it....

final DP2 challenge of the year

Hi lovelies, well it is poring with rain here and very strong winds so not very christmassy or very nice either!!I hope it is better where you are!
Well its Thursday again, so time for a new challenge over at Mo's DP2 challenge, and this one will run for 2 WEEKS instead of the normal weekly one. And the theme this week is such a great idea, basically we want you to pick your favourite Mo's card that you have made this year! See told you it was a good one! You don't even have to make anything new! The only problem is picking your favourite! I struggled a bit, but I really only had one choice in the end.
I went with the card I made for Meghan's birthday, I mean if I get an image drawn for me by the wonderful Mo then I gotta use that one eh?

I totally love this image, I asked Mo for a teen witch with long curly hair and she most certainly delivered, didn't she??

the rest of the team have picked awesome cards, I cant wait to see what you will pick as your own favourite!

Santa Clause is coming...

Evening lovelies, very quick post must get back to wrapping pressies! 
It is time for a new challenge over at Deep Ocean challenge and the theme is 'Santa is Coming...' so a nice and easy one for you.
I have used another Mo manning image called Ragged Santa, I made this card for my son Alex for Christmas and he was delighted with it. Its very plain and simple for me but I love that the image takes centre stage, he is one very jolly santa!!

OMG!! a non dt card!!!!!....

Hi lovelies, well get me! I finally have had a chance to make a card that isnt for a design team, an order or for a challenge! 

I honestly cannot remember the last time I did this!

I made this card the other night completely for fun and boy did i enjoy doing it! I have cut down my dt commitments to five teams now and hopefully that will enable me to get back to enjoying making cards.

 Dont get me wrong I love all the teams I am on and I love creating, but sometimes its just nice to make because I want to.

Before I show you this card I want to say a huge thank you to all my followers that have joined me throughout this year, A huge warm welcome to all my new followers, I really do appreciate you following me.

 I have sadly lost a few followers recently, which I find sad but I can understand as I havent been the best blogger recently, I have been in a very difficult place these last few weeks which happens every year at this time, most of you will know why. I have been visiting your blogs just not leaving comments, so please bare with me, once I get through the next few weeks I should hopefully get back on track.

So here is my card using a Make it crafty image called snowball fight

also here is a picture on my daughter Meghan all ready to go to her senior christmas dance,

Oh dear!!!!

Morning Lovelies, Oh My Goodness how bad am I???? I completely forgot to do my Joanna Sheen Challenge post on sunday! And its my last one too as it is time for me to leave this great team. I have had a fab time with this great team, and I wish Paula and the girls all the best for the future with it.

The theme for this challenge is 'With Love At Christmas', I was sent house mouse decoupage to use this time which if I am honest was a huge struggle for me, there were a few tears and tantrums on my part  I have to admit! And quite a few ended up in the bin, but this is what I came up with, I hope it does the product justice.

So here is my card, hope you like it,
