Mid-Month reminder at We love Chocolate Baroque.

We have had some really lovely entries for our 'Spring Time' theme and I am here with a Mid-Month reminder. You may need your sun glasses

For my card I have used a image from the Chocolate Baroque Breath of Spring Collection.


This is the very first CB stamp set that I bought and I still love this flower, it is really timeless.

Ribbon SU and papers are from my large collection which I am trying desperately to reduce.

Allsorts challenge 620 - Anything Goes with Ribbon

 Good Morning, it is our lovely Wendy's turn to set the theme for us at Allsorts.

Wendy would like to see some RIBBON  on your creation this week.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Ribbons with a £10.00 voucher for one lucky  winner.


I have used two ribbons the green ribbon is old Stamping Up stretch ruffle trim for this I cut two prices of the ribbon and joined them together so that I had a ruffle on both top and bottom, I then added another ribbon in the centre (make unknown). The image is by Pinksy  Doodles - Dogwood Dasies, the daisy paper is also from Pinksy Doodles also.

Please do check out the lovely creations by the rest of the team.

Allsorts Challenge 619 -Butterflies,Birds, or Bees

 Good Morning,  Saturday again so another challenge over at Allsorts and it is the turn of our lovely Tracy to choose the theme.

Our sponsor this week is Helping Hands Crafts.

Tracy has chosen - Butterflies, Birds or Bees. Here is my take on the challenge.

Using Woodware - Special Bird stamp.

The spotted wagtail warbler, only seen in Bailiff Bridge, on very rare occasions.



I have paper pieced the image with papers from my huge collection and used old LOTV papers for the background.
The image was stamped onto a subtle blue paper.

I have had an horrendous two weeks with my commenting on Allsorts entries, blogger seems to have had a mind of it's own, telling me that my comments have not been published for a huge explanation but the comments had been published. I was on the verge of throwing  the computer out of the window but thought Chris wouldn't want to pay for a new window and it has been pretty cold up here.
Hope you all have had a lovely Easter.

We Love Chocolate Baroque - April Challenge - Spring.

 Good Morning a new month and a new challenge at We Love Chocolate Baroque.

So for April the challenge is ... Spring Time.

The most common flowers at this time of year are tulips and daffodils. I have used the Chocolate Baroque Tulips stamp for my cards for this challenge. 


The photo's do not really show the fact that I have used glossy accents on the flowers but not the leaves.
To me tulips do seem to have glossy flowers. The background comes with the stamp so just coloured it with a very light blue chalk.

Please do pop over to the challenge blog to see the lovely creations made by the rest of the team.

Rudolph Day - March 2021

 Well I totally forgot about Rudolph Day this month till I saw the entries on my dashboard, the other night.

Anyway better late than never.


I have used the little robin from the Penny Black Jolly friends collection.

Woodware wreath and I can not find the dotty circle die anywhere but I gave up looking at 10.20 last night.

On top of all this I have a new keyboard, my little Apple one has just about given up the ghost.

My Son-In-Law has kindly given me a new one of his that he bought in America, it is massive, have no idea what the heck some of the keys are for.

My first problem was the @ key, it was on the third row down. 11 keys further on, so I pressed it, and got a single speech mark, pressed shift and got two speech marks, turns out the @ key is the upper case of the number 2. I am either going to have fun or it will be returned with thanks but no thanks.

Worn out, hate change.

Allsorts challenge week 617/618 - Monochromatic

 Nearly Easter already, so this means a two week challenge over at Allsorts.

Our lovely sponsor for this two week challenge is Chocolate Baroque.

The theme has been chosen by our lovely Mervi, and she would like you to go, 

Monochromatic, basically this means different shades of one colour, but do pop over to the challenge blog for samples from the team if you are unsure.

Here is my card.

Apart from the soil I have used three different shades of turquoise .

The image is 'Flower Pot' from the Chocolate Baroque 'Flora and Fauna' set.

I have yet to put a sentiment on as it could be used for a few situations.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts Challenge week 616 - Anything Goes with Spring Flowers.

 Good Morning another week and another challenge over at Allsorts.

Our lovely leader, Brenda has chosen the theme of......

Anything Goes with Spring Flowers.

Our Sponsor this week is Pinksy Doodles.

I have used the sponsors image - Daffodil Vase.


I have paper pieced the vase, coloured the flowers and then used glossy accents.

Edged the image by colouring the edges with the same colour as the flowers and, amazingly found some green backing card that just about matched the green of the stems.

Please do check out my lovely team mates creation and looking forward to seeing your Spring entries.

On a personal note, still haven't managed to get to the hairdressers, my hair looks like I have been dragged through a hedge backwards (anyone remember that saying?) and while it is not like Josephs coat of many colours, it is more like 40 shades of grey.
