Boys Will Be Boys

Hello, Good Morning and Welcome!! It's time for

The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog

It is Boys Will Be Boys and I chose this sweet little fella from our Sponsor.

Pink Gem Designs


He is pre-coloured and I chose Lawn Fawn papers that seem to compliment his outfit perfectly. I can't remember where my Happy Birthday die came from but it adds a bit of interest to a fairly plain card. I die cut the star buttons and then coated them in glossy accents for a bit of shine. Its been a long time since my boys sat cross legged on the floor playing on their Playstation!! Martin and I couldn't wait for them to go to bed so that we could attempt the next level on Crash Bandicoot...remember him?!!

Well, Mama Mia was brilliant and we came home a little hoarse from  singing our heads off!! There was plenty of time to wander around Bournemouth beforehand and reawaken some happy childhood memories. Lunch was scrumptious too, so a very successful outing and one I hope we can do again.

Anyway, we look forward to seeing your Cute boy cards.

See you soon xx

AYLI - Favourite embellishment

Hello folks!! It's time to get your embellishments out and let us know at

As You Like It Challenge

which is your favourite!!

I am not one for a lot of embellishments but if I am feeling in a fancy mood I add ribbon to a card for a bit of interest. It adds a lovely touch to certain designs and still doesn't add too much bulk for posting, as you can see on my card.


Another card without a coloured image, I don't know what is going on lately!! This sweet little fairy and papers came free with a magazine and was perfect to send to a friend for her Birthday. All it needed was a gold mat and my perfectly matching ribbon. 

I usually say I am looking forward to the weekend because Martin will be off, and he will be, but I am abandoning the boys and going out on a "jolly" with the girls from work. We are going to Bournemouth to see Mama Mia at the Pavilion. I can't wait!! I love live theatre and it has been far too long since I have been to see a show. It's a matinee performance so I have booked us in for a nice lunch beforehand. We can dance and sing the calories off later!!

Anyway I know it's a bit premature but whatever the weekend has in store for you, I hope it's a good one!!

See you soon xx

The colours of your flag



Allsorts have had such great challenges lately and I have found myself with time to play along again. This week they are asking for projects using the colours of your flag. Well, being British I have chosen red, white and blue, but have also incorporated a little bit of yellow for Dorset. Yes the county of Dorset has a flag!!


Image result for dorset flag

Anyway here is my card using the latest Julie Loves kit, and a stamp from Craftwork Cards.


Better get ready for "walkies", I can hear excitement building and had better not disappoint as it is such a lovely day!! 

Hope yours is a lovely day whatever you are doing!!

Poppies

Hello friends. Yay, I managed to find some crafty time because it  is raining !!

 Many years ago, in the late 80s actually, one of my work colleagues arranged a "Colour me beautiful" consultation for a group of us. Basically a lady draped coloured scarves around our necks and told us what colours suited our skin tone/hair colour best. I was an Autumn/Winter and still stick to certain colours to this day. Anyway, that is why I was drawn to the latest challenge at Allsorts...the beautiful autumnal colours, and this is what I was inspired to make.



It's a very old stamp that, I think, came in a collection from QVC when Dawn Bibby first started presenting...yes, I am that old!! I heat embossed it using black shiny powder and used Aquamarkers to paint in the detail. It looked a bit flat on a plain card mat so I used a hessian effect embossing folder for a bit of texture. Ta-dah!! Not a cute image or patterned paper in sight!! The colours are much more vibrant in real life...I blame the weather!! Hope you like it.

That's all for now. See you soon xx

Make me up

Hello!! Another brand new month and another new release at Sasayaki Glitter. I chose this little lady to play with and put her together with some free LOTV papers from way back!!


I gave my SN Illustrator pens another airing and I think I am getting the hang of them!! The flowers on her dress were given a bit of bling by way of a Sakura glitter pen but try as I might I could not get it to photograph, probably because it was sunny!! I realised I was short on oval dies in my collection so recently got hold of a Tonic essentials set which I am really pleased with and used them for the image and the sentiment. 

Well that is me for today. I am having a quiet week, work wise, so might get chance to have a crafty play once the furry members of the family have been taken care of. There are a couple of challenges that have caught my eye so here's hoping!!

Until next time xx

Favourite colour Combo - AYLI

Hello friends, I have my DT card today for 


We would love to see your creations showing off your favourite colour combo.
Here is mine and they are pink and green which I suspect is one of Mother Natures 
favourites too...they just go!!


Our sponsor is Polkadoodles and I used an image from my own Winnie Springtime CDrom. My Promarkers were used again to colour her and the papers were from The Range. 

Thank you for your company this week. See you the other side of the weekend!!

A very fancy fold!!

You know yesterday I said I managed a bit of crafty indulgence over the weekend, well it was inspired by the new challenge at Allsorts. I am ashamed to say that it has been a while since I have entered any of their challenges as work commitments meant I only had time for DT pieces, most of which weren't suitable. So when I saw the Fancy Folds challenge this week that was inspiration enough for me to make time to play and here is what I made. 


and a side view...ish


and this rubbish picture shows how it will look when it comes out of the envelope


Like the one I shared last week it looks complicated but in actual fact is very easy. 
The beauty is that it is flat for posting and yet stands centre stage in the mantelpiece!!
I have also been itching to have a go at colouring on kraft again and was inspired by Jules and her lovely work in Quick Cards Made Easy.

Here are the measurements if you fancy having a go!!

 You need card stock 11" long and about 4" wide. Score the long edge at 1",  2.75", 3.75", 5.50", 7.25", 8.25" and 10". Cut a slot along the 5.50" (halfway score) leaving half an inch either side so that your mat can fit through. Score and fold, decorate a 5" x 3" mat, making sure it is one layer only otherwise it won't slide through, poke it through the slot between the flaps inside and secure with wet glue or extra sticky tape. If my instructions are pants  (!!!) I am sure you will find demos on YouTube!! 

If you are still with me, thank you !! See you Thursday xx

Favourite Festive Digi

Morning campers!! Hope you had a good weekend, mine was as predicted!! I even managed a bit of crafty indulgence which I will share tomorrow.

Anyway, it's Christmas time again!! Not really, but it is time for a new challenge at

Christmas With The Cuties

where it's Favourite "CUTE" Festive Digi

I used an image from our sponsor, Paper Nest Dolls,  and here is what I made.


This is Christmas Angel, coloured with Promarkers. The papers were free with a magazine last Christmas time, I think. I stickled her wings for a bit of festive frosting and the sentiment tags are good old LOTV.

It would be lovely to see your Cute Christmas cards!!

Toodles for now and I will be back tomorrow, all being well xx

Making Frosty friends

Happy Friday everyone and I hope you have something nice planned for the coming weekend. Martin is working so it will be pottering about here for me, spending some time with Surprise, dog walking, lawn mowing (if the rain stops!) and maybe even some housework...I said maybe!!

Anyway, I was inspired by a DT card that my lovely friend Lisa shared in support of 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday and thought I would join in so here is my card.



Most of you will know that I am a bit seriously  partial to a paper pad or three and I recently subscribed to Craftwork Cards' Julie Loves monthly boxes and this Christmas collection was my first delivery. It's gorgeous as you can see!! The snowlady was stamped using a Lawn Fawn set Making Frosty Friends and was coloured with SN Illustrator markers.

Another Christmas card made!!

Thank you for stopping by xx

Reading Time

Happy Thursday folks, yet another week has rolled around and the weekend is in sight. Before that though I am here in DT mode for Sasayaki Glitter with Reading Time. She is one of the older characters and actually one of my favourites.


I made a pop-up slider card this time which looks very impressive but is really easy to make. The image was coloured with Promarkers and attached to the card base which I made using cardstock and candi from Craftwork Cards that came in a mega Hedgerow pack. The stamped sentiment is also from a Craftwork Cards set craft which I can't find on their site now :0(

Here is a side view so you get the gist!!


Well, that's all from me for now. Thank you for your continued support and lovely comments which are always welcome. Take care xx

Pearls or Gems?...you decide!!

Hello, me again and quite unusual these days. How I wish I had time to make cards to blog for the sake of it and not just DT work. Thankfully this is my last week of holiday cover for a month so fingers crossed!! 

We have a new challenge at


where the theme is Pearls or Gems?

For me it has to be pearls, you can get such a wonderful selection of colours these days ( I have tried to colour white ones with Promarkers but it's never been particularly successful!!). they add a lovely finishing touch to all styles of cards whether elaborate or simple...like mine today.


Now, this little piggy is part of an MFT set that I bought a long time ago, I have a collection of pigs you see and just had to have it and it has remained uninked until now!! Sound familiar?!! I was inspired by a design that I found on Pinterest one day. I fussy cut him myself and coloured him with Promarkers. See what I mean about the pearls...just right!!

Before I go I must share a picture of the fur babies, we have had them a year now, how that time has flown. They have grown into truly delightful dogs and in spite of their voracious appetites for "Walkies" and digging in my precious lawn they are well and truly established as the bosses and completely in charge!!



I love comparing then and now!! 

I really am going now. Take Care xx

Here come the girls


It's Cutie Pie Challenge time today and our theme is

Here Come The Girls

Crafty Sentiments are sponsoring this challenge and we were supplied with images to use. This one is Emmi Loo - Just Me, isn't she cute?!!



I printed her out on the lightest setting in order to try the "no lines" look with my Promarkers. I think it actually worked, to a degree!! The pretty papers are Marianne Design Peach and Mint. I faffed about with the white mats but am actually quite pleased with the look. Do hope that you will join us with your Cute girlie makes.

See you later in the week xx

Meg and Kitty - Sasayaki DT

Hello everyone. hope you are all well and that life is being good to you. It's my turn to share some inspiration at Sasayaki Glitter today and I chose Meg in her summer attire. I used her about this time last year here if you want a look!! Anyway here she is with her ice cream!!


She is such a sweet character and I broke open a paper pad that fell into my basket during a visit to The Range some time ago (I must be due another visit I reckon!!). I chose Promarkers to match and used one of Jules' sketches. Apologies for the shadows but THE SUN IS SHINING and I think it looks rather nice in dappled light.

Speaking of sun, I am very excited that, as we had a paddock unoccupied, we have made some hay this year ( sad...I know...I am easily pleased, what can I say?!!). There is nothing quite like the sweet smell of a good bale of hay, it's quite intoxicating, unless you are a hayfever sufferer of course :0( 

Anyway, that is me for today. Toodles until next time xx

AYLI Favourite way to add ribbon


Hello friends, Thursday again, sniffing distance of the weekend and another new challenge at



We would love to know your favourite way to add ribbon. I don't always use ribbon, but when I do I tie a bow ( in this case, seam binding) and attach to a length of the same ribbon wrapped around the card, as you can see below. It adds a bit of "pretty" without too much fuss.


I have made a get well card this time using some goodies from My Mum's Craft Shop, where there are currently bargains galore to be had!! I love fussy cutting images usually but could well be a convert having bought the die to match the gorgeous MFT stamp!! She was coloured with Promarkers to match the papers, as usual!! To add some definition I inked the edges of the papers too, must do that more often as I quite like the effect!!

Well, that is me for today. Thank you for your visit xx

CAS at Cutie Pie christmas.


Guess what...six months today it will be Boxing Day!! If you want to get ahead with your Christmas cards why not join in the new challenge at


the theme, out of my comfort zone a little, is

Clean Cute and Simple


I used the snowman from our sponsor Crafty Sentiments, who was coloured with Promarkers and then fussy cut.

I can't tell you how hard it was not to add some paper,  but I settled on my good old Cuttlebug embossing folder for a bit of interest, some twine and Mama Elephant tags and stamps...again. I gave him a black glittery nose too...as you do!!

See you soon  xx

Happy Birthday Mia

Good afternoon/morning, depending where you are in the world!! Get the kettle on and put your feet up, I am in the mood for a chat!!

To start with it's my turn to share a project to show off  the fab designs by Naz of Sasayaki Glitter and this time my make features

 Happy Birthday Mia.



I CASEd one of  a card collection, by Paula Holifield, that is featured in a current magazine and used some very old paper, it certainly  came from  one of the very first paper pads I ever bought when I dipped my toe into papercrafting...I am now, well and truly, submerged right up to my neck!! I will definitely use this layout again. The unfussy design really appeals to me and yet there is still space for some pretty paper.

For more inspiration you can visit here and here.

Thank goodness it's Thursday, it's been bedlam at work following my annual leave but I don't work on  Friday so it will be time to catch up at home again tomorrow!! Then I am doing holiday cover for a fortnight...:0 (  I sometimes question the logic of working part-time. Having to cover holiday means you don't really get any holiday at all, the perils of a small workplace I guess!!

Anyway, last Sunday seems like a long time and we had a lovely lunch with Mollie and her Daddy and Mummy!! She was fighting sleep the whole time until Grandad took his turn...he must have a very comfy knee because this happened!!


So that is me for today!!
See you soon xx

Oliver Texting

Hello friends. Hope this finds you well. We have had a lovely week and most definitely don't want to go back to work tomorrow...never mind, our next week off,  in September, will soon be here!!

I know I am not alone in struggling with cards for the male "flavour", particularly youngsters. However, I think I nailed it with this fab image from LOTV - Oliver Texting featured on a card for one of my cousin's boys.




I flipped him so that he was facing in the opposite direction and coloured him with Promarkers to match the MFT papers - Painted Prints. I inked the edges with Frayed Burlap and finished off with my favourite Mama Elephant Mini Messages and Mini Tags and a small grey pearl.

To round off our week we have been invited out for a Father's Day carvery, so looking forward to that...no cooking!!  My Dad will be very much in my thoughts today and if you can't be with yours either I hope you too have some happy memories to recall.

Have a good day whatever you are up to and as we are in the midst of a heatwave in the UK, stay safe in the sun xx

AYLI DT Favourite Fruit

Hi there crafty buddies, hope you are well and looking forward to the weekend. I am hosting over at

As You Like It Challenge

where we would love to see a project inspired by fruit, be it an actual fruit or that you have used the colour of a certain  fruit to base your project on.

Now I am partial to all sorts of fruit but my favourite fruit flavour is lemon...lemon drizzle cake, sherbet lemons, lemon cheesecake, lemon doughnuts, Thorntons lemon chocolates, lemon possett...need I go on!? Anyway, fuelled up by the thought of Lemon drizzle I got out my PB T for transparent set and made this...


I used a Tonic set for the card base and mats and covered them with Maja Designs Coffee in the arbour papers which I thought I should actually use instead of just looking at from time to time!! Coloured with Promarkers and glittered with Stickles and Wink of Stella. The sentiment was from the stamp set also and die cut with a rather lovely shaped set that I found in The Works.

Well that is me, I do hope you will be inspired and join us.

See you soon xx

All Creatures Great and Small - Cutie Pie DT

Monday again...yay...I am on annual leave this week and Martin is off too so lots of fun ahead...more of that later!!

It's time for our June Challenge at

new style blog badge

where the theme is All Creatures Great and Small. 
Here is what I did using an image from our Sponsor, Bugaboo.


I sat and scratched my head while trying to plan this card and eventually used one of the old LOTV sketches, as I often do if mojo is lacking.  I used a new paper pad from Craftwork Cards, Julie Loves -  Daisy,Ditsy and Dotty Bundle and coloured the ever so cute bear, with Promarkers, to match. The flower was made using an old Die-namics Layered Rose set, matching card candi was stickled and I used my trusty Mama Elephant Mini tags dies & Mini Messages. You must have some cute creatures in your stash so it would be great to have you play along!!

So, back to our fun week...don't laugh!! We have a skip arriving later today as we have all sorts of accumulated farm stuff that is just too big to dispose of at the local Recycling Centre so it will be fun filling that!! On Wednesday we have a digger coming to do a bit of groundwork so that will be a couple of hours entertainment too and I can bark orders!! The rest of the week we are planning to eat out, walk the dogs (Martin) and ride Surprise (me), and generally enjoy some much needed time together that is not dictated by our watches.

Hope you have a fun filled week!!

Baking Time

Hello friends, Thursday again and another weekend sneaking up on us!!

I am here with my inspiration card for Sasayaki Glitter.

This little cutie is called Baking Time.


I must apologise for the quality of the photograph, my trusty camera is misbehaving so I had to use my mobile phone which I can never keep still enough for a crisp picture...but you get the idea!!

I love colouring these short haired little ladies, so much simpler than long flowing locks!! She was matched to some old papers that I found in my stash, I have a feeling they might be Dovecraft, but don't hold me to that!! 

Hope you are all in good health, if not, I wish you better days xx

AYLI Favourite Reason


Hello lovely people. Don't these weeks just fly by? It doesn't seem possible that I am here shouting about another new challenge at


which is Your Favourite reason to send a card (other than a Birthday!!).

Other than Christmas, mine is a Just Because card which I make and send to friends that I haven't seen for a while or to those I haven't even met (but hope to!!). Let's be honest, there is nothing nicer than receiving a card totally out of the blue is there?!!


Like many, I am sure, I just had to have one or two (maybe a few more!!) of the newest LOTV images and I am so glad I chose this little darling as she was a delight to colour. I used Promarkers to compliment the papers that I picked up in The Works. I found the layout somewhere and cannot for the life of me remember where, so to whoever it was...I thank you!!

Right, that's me for this week. I hope you have a good weekend, when you get there. We have Mollie Rose's Christening, to look forward to, on Sunday so I hope the weather will stay reasonable for us. Keep your fingers crossed!!

Until next time xx

Snuggly Bears with The Cuties at Christmas


Hello friends. First I must apologise if I haven't been to visit you lately...nothing major,  just holiday cover at work and family. Still with the horrors of last week I really don't suppose my woes are very important....get things in perspective Sarah!!

Anyway, it's Christmas with the Cutie Pies time  again and we would love to see your
Cute Snuggly Bears. Here is mine with his little mate!!


I made an 8x8 card this time to accommodate the Dovecraft  papers and the larger than average stamp from Hobby Art, Winter Bears Set. I tried out my (Subscription free gift) Chameleon pens...my word,  they are different!! I haven't had the chance to practice very much yet, but I am sure when I get the hang of them they will get far more use. I do hope most of you here in the UK will get to enjoy our Spring Bank Holiday. The trouble is we won't have a clue what day it is for the rest of the week!!

Hope you will find time to join in here.

Birthday Cake


Hello friends I am here today with a cute CAS card from


She is called Birthday Cake and who wouldn't love one that size?!!


She was coloured with Promarkers and the pile of pressies are various Doodlebug papers. The message is from a Purple Onion set that was a gift from a crafty buddy.

You might like to know that there is a DT call for both the Sasayaki Glitter Inspiration Team and Challenge Blog. If you have time to make a couple of extra cards a month then please consider entering the call, believe me, they are a great group of ladies to work with!! All the details are here.


 Before I go I must bore you with a snap or two from our visit to Lyme Regis last weekend. Meryl Streep was seen there in 1982 windswept along the cobb  in the French Lieutenant's Woman!!
The weather wasn't great but the black cherry ice cream was delish!!

AYLI DT Favourite skin or fur colours

Helloooo!! I love it when it's time to share a DT piece for

j

because it means that Martin's weekend off is coming up...yay!! I think we are off to Lyme Regis this time, there is always the guarantee of a great ice cream there!! 
For now though, there is the guarantee of a great challenge and this fortnight it is to share a project showcasing your favourite colours for skin or fur. As always, it is necessary to tell us what you have chosen and why.

Our sponsor is 


so I had to use an image from Winnie's Spring Collection and here it is. 


On this occasion I used my Promarkers to colour her in to match the papers. My default skin colours are, Apricot, Oatmeal, Blush and Baby Pink which, together,  always give a fantastic result and go, pretty much, with cool and warm paper colours. The border is a Spellbinders die and the little tags are Mama Elephant with the Mini Messages stamp set and some seam binding ribbon to finish off.  Hope you will have time to join in this time.

Ribbon and Rubber at The Cutie Pies

Hello folks, hope you are ready to face the week following a lovely weekend!!
We have been lucky with the weather so I managed to mow the lawn and spend some time in the garden. Bowie and Bumble really enjoyed attacking the mower!! Thankfully they soon got bored and  then proceeded to dig up my borders...little terrors. Still, I must forgive them as they are one year old today!!
Anyway on with the job in hand.

It's time for some mid challenge inspiration Cutie Pie style!! Our current challenge is 
Ribbon and Rubber.

Here is what I made


My Presscut stepper die had an airing and the grand opening of several  more packets took place for the stamp set and other dies (oops...Love Cynthia, Sue Wilson Spring Foliage and Elizabeth Craft ). The papers came out of my scrap box and I found a piece of seam binding that matched perfectly, although it doesn't look that way at all in the photograph!!

I do hope that you will join us, if you haven't already, there is still time!!

Leila

Hello my lovely blogging buddies. Not quite sure where the last week has gone as I intended to share a few more cards but hey ho, I am here now!! 

This is Leila from Sasayaki Glitter


She was coloured with Promarkers. the die and stamp are from a Taylored Expressions set and the chevrons were done with texture paste from Lidl using the free stencil that came with Making Cards Magazine. I really enjoyed making this card and have decided not to shy away from white space quite so much!!
