Rudolph Day - February 2020

Well it is the 25th of the month again so another Rudolph Day over at ScappyMo's. Just to say that the challenge will only be open for fives as it is a Leap Year.

This is a new set of stamps for me, I bought it on sale at Samuel Taylors.

It is Hobby Art - Floral Robin.

Apart from the robin there are many more pieces to this set.
I did paper piece the wing and the breast to give a bit of dimension to the image.
Card size 6 x 4ish(I have quite a few cards this size so I am trying to use them more)
Papers from the Range
Scalloped frame die MFT
Sentiment die - Creative Expressions.

This was very difficult to colour as some of the item were very small.
So far this is the only card I have made with this image as I needed quite a while to get my eyes back in focus. I have set this card to publish at 9.00 AM but it may be a tad later that I get link it up.

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

Allsorts week 560 - Make it Girly


Lynn has chose the theme for this week which is.....

Make it Girly
Our Sponsor this week is JMC Designs

For my card I have used Penny Black 1736K How about a Hug

Papers are some old LOTV/Nitwits.
Decided instead of colouring the body of the cat I would leave it as a black and white cat.
The die is by Tattered Lace and it is straight, it is the photo that is crooked.
When you are going to make a card, especially for challenge you have to decide, what image, what papers, colours, layout, sentiment and other things, but the worst thing of all is taking the photo.

Apart from their Birthday, and Christmas,  Tuesday is one of my Grandsons favourite days.
Pancake Day/Shrove Tuesday and of course Grandma makes the best pancakes ever (think my Daughter brain washes them into saying that).

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

Allsorts week 559 - Dies or Punches


This weeks theme has been chosen by Ellie and she would like you to use either dies or punches or both on your creations.
Our Sponsor this week is Wowvow
With this voucher for one lucky winner.


I have used Spellbinders Candlewick Square frame die (you will be using quite a lot of this die)
and Simon Says Cosmos Flower Frame (you will be seeing not much of this die, I would not recommend it to my worst enemy (only a saying, hope I haven't got one)
The pink card is from The Works and the paper for the flower is Craftwork Cards.
To say that the die was very difficult to use is an understatement, even so I bit the bullet and cut the outside once and three times with the pattered papers and layered them.
I will be very surprised if I ever use this die again, but never say never.

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