Fabulous Cute Critters

We are going critter crazy over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.

Challenge this week
Cute Critters

Our lovely sponsor is



For those of you who have known me a while now, you will know I've been struggling with my weight for a few years and falling down the stairs didn't help matters. So for this challenge I decided I needed a cute new recipe book to write-up all the healthy W.W. friendly recipes I'm going to try to create
And here it is, the little critter hippo is to remind me how I don't want to look anymore, the critter rabbit is pointing out to think veg! Lastly Alistair Alligator is reminding me not to make Snap decision. All these adorable critters are available from Dr.Digi.

Please pop over and visit our lovley design ladies and leave them some happy thoughts.

I do promise to post my W.W. friendly recipes on here if they turn out yummy. They will be for a family (4-6portions) not a single person recipe. (But hey, sevral portions means several days of prepared lunch/dinner.)

Back soon

Not a square on it

We have a great challenges for you this week over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges

"Anything But Square"
(No squares cards or boxes or anything)

Our lovely Sponsor this week is

It is so simple to make square or rectangular cards, so hopefully we can inspire and encourage you all to change the pace a little.
If you are one of the lovely people who treated yourself to a Scan N Cut then let it help you created a shaped card, like this:
I can see this being the start of lots of shaped cards, I simple typed my daughters name into canvas then used the "create offset line" to make the actual card section. 
Once you create the offset you then duplicate it and use the mirror tool to flip it over. Now line up the top edges, allowing them to overlap a little bit.

This is your card base, now you can go nuts and decorate.
I used this lovely Whoopsidaisy digi stamp

and coloured it with Promarkers that were as close as possible to the card-stock I used.

Pop over to the Fab'N'Funky blog to see the lovely inspiring creations from our fabulous design team. Leave our ladies some good vibes.

We look forward to seeing your creations.

Happy Mothers Day

I would just like to wish all my fellow mums a very Happy Mothers Day.

Today has been lovely, I whipped up a quick card for my nephew, which I am entering in the "Abstract" #290 CASology challenge:


A nice simple card, I had the sunset backing paper in my stash and thought my little skate-boy stamp and a die-cut sentiment.

I got taken out for a lovely meal at Moonsha, a Japanese restaurant I like.



My lovely girls trying to decide what to have.

We started with Sushi and Gyoza (fried dumplings). Unfortunately I forgot to get a piccie.



 
 Main course was excellent, I had the Tempura bento box, it was like being back in Japan
Needless to say the girls were happy too, eldest had the Beef Teriyaki bento, youngest had the Katsu don and hubby had the Tempura, same as me.




Of course Mawgan had to share her dinner with her friends on snapchat.







 But no meal is complete without dessert




                Mochi                                                                       Coconut Ice cream

I hope your Mothers Day was a wonderful one too

Well, it's been a long and exciting day

Mothers day is coming

Well what a week we have had. Snow, sub-zero temperatures and a lot of people driving stupidly.
I personally love snow and have driven to work on several occasions in the past in rather poor visibility.
Well when you work up on the Staffordshire moorlands you have to be prepared for anything, especially when there are areas with no mobile signal if you get into trouble.
I have to say, it was easier to get to work in a blizzard up on the moorlands than it is here in the city...go figure.

But let us get back to the more important matter of crafting. Over at Fab'N'Funky Challenges we are celebrating Mothers day.
We would love for you to come and join in with us.
I have had several requests for card from work colleages, but here are just 2 of the many I have had to make.
This first card I decided to go elegant & understated, gentle mute tones and just a simple ribbon.

Sticking with the multi-stamp tulip, I changed up a gear with bright crisp colours.

I have also done something crazy, I have entered a dress I made into the "Dress maker of the year" contest. I am actually feeling slightly queazy now that I've done it.
Every entry gets 2 dressmaking patterns, so that's like winning to me 😁
I will keep you updated.

Getting late and I'm shattered.
Back soon with more sharing

Lacey Heart Update

Hello lovely peeps

So I realised today that there was an access issue with the Lacey Heart cutting file.

I have hopefully resolved this problem, so head over to the Download tab to get your copy.

Here is a super quick card using the Lacey Heart:
Simple with a hint of elegance.

I look forward to seeing your creations in the comments below.

p.s.  I spelled Lacy incorrectly so it would be a distinctive name, I'm planing to make a collection which of course will be "Lacey"

Good morning,

I have put the cutting file in my Downloads tab.
