No man like a snowman

Morning ,

Hope you're all well.
It's time for a new challenge over at
and the theme has been chosen by Mary which is:

'No Man like a Snowman'
so lets see them.
We'd love you to join in with our challenge and the teamies have made some beautiful creations.So feel free to pop over for some wonderful inspiration.

For my card I've used a freebie Nitwit stamp, embossed it in black, coloured with promarkers and stickles. Then I added some die cut snowflakes/xmas tree, ribbon, a charm, gingham papers, pearls & a button.

We are lucky to be sponsored by:
£10 voucher excluding P&P

It was another beautiful day yesterday and pretty productive too.I managed a couple of loads of washing hung out, polished and dusted, took my hanging baskets down and emptied them as they were looking a little dire and fed and watered my flower troughs that was all in the morning - phew!!!

Well I am hoping to craft today if I can.I need to make my Mum's birthday cards and I've a DT card to make too. Thanks for popping by, you are such lovely followers.

Hey Pumpkin

Hi all,

I couldn't resist getting this cute stamp.I sat and coloured it in yesterday morning then popped the card together. Nice to make a card that wasn't an order or for someone's birthday etc.... just for fun for my card box.

I was hoping to do some stamping yesterday but I couldn't find the stamp I wanted.Would you believe it, once I tidied my craft cupboard I found it.Typical eh! Oh well there's always today.
Hope you had a lovely day whatever you're up to.


Big hugs

Forgotten Funky time

It's that time of the month when we re-visit a forgotten funky from Funkyhand's array of products.
It's the turn of the paper collection called Steam funk which consists of 17 backing papers, 4 digital stamps and a sheet of alphas.
There are some amazing designs in this collection and a chance to try something new if these papers etc are out of your comfort zone.Go on, give them a try. Here's a card I made with the collection on Wednesday.

Quite a different style of card for me, but great fun and quick to put together.
Why not pop over and see what the rest of the funkettes have made over at the Get funky and craft blog. So many different cards etc made from 1 paper collection.


Thanks for popping over to see me and to leave me such lovely comments.I really do appreciate it.

As always there are 2 prizes to be won and if you choose to use your own image or a Nutcrafter's image we will love it.Freebies available at the top of the Nutcrafters blog.

For my card I chose the digital stamps from the 'fresh start' set.I used the window with Mrs bunny leaning out, New home sentiment and Mr Bunny.I created the windows with a die from Clearly besotted stamps and a brick embossing folder.

Hope you've all had a nice bank holiday weekend, even if the weather wasn't the best. I've done some crafting over the weekend and yesterday I popped to my daughters' to wait in for the Sky Man to come and install her Sky which went well.

A little bit of stamping and stencilling


I thought I'd pop by to share with you a card I made recently with my a mask and a Sheena Douglass stamp. I really must get my masks and stamps out more. As I loved making this card for my Mum in law.

Well I made it to the hairdressers yesterday which was an achievement in itself after the last month or so.I drove myself, as it is just around the corner and managed okay for once. It was a fine treat to get my hair coloured and cut.It's a lovely reddy brown.Sam did a gorgeous job on it. Such a fab and friendly salon.
I am hoping to pop to see Shannen's new flat this morning for the first time, so really looking forward to it.Poor lass is really missing having her tv as the aerial is needing fixed there and her washer has broken too.Guess Mummy will be doing that job for a little while.

The sun is shining so whatever you're doing today have a super day. In the last week I have had an order of 4 cards from someone who saw my blog - I am over the moon, so that'll be what I am up to this weekend. Shamus posted off the wedding card I was asked to make last Friday, so that saved me going out again.Bless him. I have been blown away by peoples kindness.

Thanks for popping by.

Morning all,

It's new challenge time over at Nutcrafters and it's my turn to chose the theme of:

So whether it's a wedding celebration, new home, etc... we'd love to see what you make  and please feel free to use a Nutcrafters freebie image too.

For my card I've used one of the stamp sets called 'Wedded bliss' which consists of 5 stamps.


So how was your weekend? I had some lovely visits from friends and family.So nice to catch up. On Monday I cleaned my oven - exciting hey-it doesn't get any better than that.I was very good and paced myself and those bags that you shove all the trays in save my arms from lots of scrubbing. I only did it because it was started to smoke a little - so there was no choice in the matter.
Yesterday I had some blog posts to prepare for today as well as a couple of cards.

My daughter moved back into Gilberdyke which is nice.She was fed up of the noise from the pubs etc where she was living before.Lets hope this is her last move for a while. I couldn't really help her with the move due to the last few months with my health but I contributed by doing some washing for her.

I'll be back in an hour with my last post of the day.

Hugs Debbie x
