love in a cup

Hi everyone
Are you all sorted for the man in the red suit then?  I am almost finished and if I'm honest I can't wait for it to be all over.  Yip, bah humbug and all that :) 

So, as it's my turn to showcase over on Art by MiRan I thought I'd do something other than Christmas

This is  Love in a Cup available from Art by MiRan store 

I've kept this totally CAS.  
Coloured with copics, fussy cut, and once I'd printed the sentiment onto the card base I just stuck her right on down :)  It must be one of the quickest cards I've made in a long time.
There is still lots of time to enter our anything goes challenge too girls
and of course we'd love to see you on the  Art by Miran Facebook page where we have monthly challenges and lots of crafty chatter. Why not pop over and have a natter with Miran and the DT girls

Thanks so much for stopping by and we hope you have a wonderful day!

Waiting for you

Morning Everyone
It is freeeeeeeezing here.  Winter has most definitely arrived.  We're off out tonight too so I am hoping it at least stays dry.  Who wants to be all dressed up in their glad rags with them hanging like a bag of washing.
Friends from all over UK, who like us visit Turkey every year are meeting up for a wee Christmas get together.  I am really looking forward to it as I've not seen most of them for months.

My card today is my second GDT spot for Sketch Saturday and they are sponsored this week by Art by MiRan  Play along and you have the chance to win three of her gorgeous digital images.  

I've only put a sentiment on the little lamp post sign as I'm not sure yet who this will go to 

papers - First Edition
poinsettia- cricut - Joys of the Season
frantage - That Craft Place 

So, that's my bit of inspiration for you today. Have a smashing weekend

sitting pretty

Afternoon girls
It's wet, windy and downright miserable here so I am desperately trying to catch up with my cards.
Dad is still in hospital so Mum and I are still up and down everyday, me sometimes twice.  He's on the mend though so we are hoping he is allowed home later in the week.
Wait till I tell you how bleep bleep bleep stupid I was yesterday.  Took a taxi to work with two cards I had on order for one of the girls.  Somewhere between getting into and out of the taxi I lost them :(  Yip, two cards gone.  I have contacted the driver but as of yet he hasn't got back to me.  I'm praying they were in the cab and that I get them back or that is two more I need to do :(

Anyway, today's card is another one I did a week or two ago but being so busy I've just not had time to blog.  As you can see I've even got my ADU DT watermark in it even though I stepped down.  That shows how lazy I have been.  A huge congratulations to all the new girls over there and thanks to Bettina for stepping up to the mark and taking over my co-ordinators position.  She will be fantastic for sure :)
 I promise to try and get round for a visit this afternoon too.  I've not even had a peep never mind leave a comment or two :)

So, now that I've got all that off me chest I'm off to make a cuppa then it's time to hop around a bit.
Happy Crafting

Candy Cane Dreams

Morning everyone
Happy Saturday.  Here we are just a couple of weeks away from Christmas already.  How did that come around so quickly?  Are you all sorted?  I'm almost there thank goodness :)
Anyway, on to my card for today.  I've been asked, along with a few other girls from Art by Miran DT if we would like to do a couple of GD spots over on Sketch Saturday.
I said yes of course

Here is what I came up with using the fab sketch.

papers - Lori Whitelock
coloured with copics

I love how this one turned out.  I'm going to have to have a wee look at sketches more often. this came together in no time as all the hard work had been done already :)
Have a smashing weekend

look who's 1

Morning everyone
Almost another week gone by without a post but I have been super busy.  My wee Dad is in hospital quite poorly so I've been up and down to visit him twice per day plus trying to help Mum out a bit too.  I could honestly crawl into bed beside him I am that bushed lol
I've resigned my DT position over on All Dressed Up too as I know I'm not going to have time to 
co-ordinate everything over there now and thankfully Wendy was very understanding of my position.
So, that just leaves me with Art by Miran as  Gayle over at Teddy Bo is postponing her challenges just now until she looks into this VAT carry on.  I really feel for the smaller designers.  It's so unfair on them.

So, now I will be mostly crafting for fun :)  It's been a long time since I could say that :)

Anyway, here's a card I did for a commission about a fortnight ago

papers - Lidl
buttons from me stash
sentiment - my own

Well, that's me news.  Please keep my wee Dad in your prayers if you can
Happy Crafting
