Seven hill challenge

(once again I apologise for the photo it's just the Scottish East coast winter light! )

I hope everyone has had a gret time over the holidays we had a quiet time with family and friends but that suits me just fine!

Over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog they have a sketch challenge and dug out Papersmooches chubby chums to play along ..did take a bit of artistic license :) as I failed to count lines so Im one short ...oops and instead of the circle my chubby chum is taking its place.I also added the dog 'fleas ' which are from a clearly besotted set ,but think in hindsight I should have left them off!Aw well you live and learn... I'll know the next time.

 Thanks for popping over for a look

Cupcake Inspirations

Another Christmas past and another year looms i hope you had a lovely Christmas!

I finally got round to getting my card made for the Cupcake Inspirations challenge!
My husband has a friend that celebrates Chinese New Year (and always comes round with a money wallet for the boys )and each year I wrack my brains for something to give him cardwise ! (any of the stamp companies do anything for this do you know?) my idea this year ..yeah I was desperate! was to link his old home with his new one .

So I went with the colours that you expect of chinese New year of red and gold and the bells for ringing out the old year as we do here ...are you following so far??? I couldnt for the life of me get the Chinese words to print and be seen on my card so settled for just Happy New year! :)

Thank you for taking the time to look

Muse Dt

This is the last challenge of this year over at Muse so thought I would wish everyone  a Happy new Year!!!!..... and what better way to do that than by a card!

I started by creating two backgrounds with 3 colours of chalks (if you prefer use distress inks Im just useless with them!) navy ,purple and blue.One slightly lighter then the other and then cut the numbers out and then used a small clearly besotted skyline along the bottom of each before colouring in the windows with a yellow promarker and yes you guessed itI made a mistake and had to cover it with the sentiment on a spare strip of paper :)

Finally I would just like to say I hope 2017 is the best year ever for you as this last year being part of the Muse team has been for me! Many thanks to the other DT's and all those that take part in our fun challenge.

Lang may yer lum reek!!!

(Scottish saying wishing you a long and healthy life)
p.s think Ill enter my card over at Cas on sunday too where they are asking for New Year Cards!

Thank you for taking the time to look

Muse DT

My turn to be the Muse for  this weeks Challenge and I have made a one layer card - and after the weeks of decorating and shifting rooms about I was in the mood for either a large wine or a bit of crafty therapy I opted for the crafty therapy...... first! :)

I used all clearly besotted products coloured with flexmarkers, su ink and a xcut punch for the flowers, simple but hopefully it is enough to inspire you !

  Maybe it will be the sheep ,puny sentiment ,flowers ,colours??? that get the crafty juices flowing ....but one thing I do know, I cant wait to see what you create in the gallery!

As the theme over at Cupcake Inspirations is thank you this week too will be add it to their blog as well

...and many thanks for taking a peek over at mine
