Mr Frosty Face

Core blimey is freezing brass monkeys here, Hello my dearies I do hope you’re all well keeping warm and are not to snowed in (it has gone from here mostly now but some of the roads are still very slippery)
Now then I have some exciting news last week I was asked to join the wonderful Dream Team for Maurie Manning!!! Yayyyyyy so so excited I couldn’t believe it when I got a message telling me (as you will all know if you are regular to my blog I love Mo’s images)
You will have to wait until Fri 22nd Dec for my 1st official DT post but here’s a card I made last night for you.
It’s an 8x8” card blank made from Kraft card the image and wording have also been printed on Kraft. Now I got the idea for the card from a lady that posted a card on the Polkadoodles FB page. She had made a Robin and put the poem about little robin red breast, I was looking for a really cute but simple idea for a card I wanted to make that will need to be posted so wanted the front to be as flat as possible (now you know me I love piling stuff on regardless)
The backing paper is from #Polkadoodles  it’s from the festive Christmas coleection (link below) which I have distressed the edges of. 
I coloured the image (giggling snowman again link below) with a mix of polychrome, Prisma and luminance pencils. Then I typed the poem can’t remember where it came from have had it for ages. I then cut to size and stuck to front of card with 3D tape.
It did need a little something so I added a chipboard snowflake that I covered in frontage and that was the front done.

For the insert I used the paper from the front with a white faded matt then added the snowman, I decided I wanted to colour this one rather than just leave plain due to the CAS style of the front. Then, I just added a simple Christmas Greeting.

Hope you like it and I will see you very soon

Not a card Eeeekkkkk



 It’s getting closer….. Are you ready for it? I’m not I’m not feeling the festive spirit al all this year Barrr humbug!!!! So I thought making a Christmas mixed media canvas for our new challenge over at Polkadoodles might help.





It’s a really easy one to do just taking some distress paints and mixed media sprays on top of texture paste then adding some frontage and Wow glitter embossing powder.
For the focal point I used some Christmas Baubles from a couple or Polkadoodles Christmas collections (Winnie White Christmas and Twiggy and Toots). I fussy cut them out and added some glitter and peel offs around one of the baubles and then sealed it all with a couple of coats of medium glaze. I then added some ribbon and bows to attach to canvas as though hanging.


I finished with a chipboard sentiment which I coloured with faded jeans re-inker and added some frontage and basically job done.
Hope you like and I will see you very soon

Ragged Winne


I’m back again my Lovies with another card to share with you. This is another half Polkadoodles half Mo Manning creation with the same LO as my previous cards.(well why not I’m on a roll)
So the LO is very distressed the papers are Polkadooodles from the festive Christmas and Winnie White Christmas ( you can find the link to get to them below)

I made papers straws from the same papers to coordinate and die cut a poinsettia flower and coloured with brushos. 

The sentiment was stamped then embossed to give a little extra sparkle it was another freebie stamp from a magazine

The image is called Ragged Winnie by Mo Manning (I adore these Ragged images) which I have coloured with prisma and Pablo pencils. Then I inked around the edges.


To finish off the card I added an insert, hope you like it and I will see you very soon with more makes

On a Snowball


Well hello, I hope you are all well, for those that know me you will know that for most of my life (for one reason or another )I have had to deal with depression, well at the moment I am going through a very dark time I have tried to keep positive but finding harder and harder, I have mentioned it on face book and I speak openly on there about it but on here I try to keep things light hearted, but I feel at times people need to know the truth and that behind the bubbly posts are a lot of tears and desperation.
I do find my crafting helps but even that can sometimes be a struggle when my mood is really low. That being said I am slowly getting ahead with my Chrimbo cards so I should just about get them finished my new year (only kidding).

Today’s card is a mix of 2 of my favourite Artists Nikky Hall (Polkadoodles) and Mo Manning a wonderful combination!

The papers are from Polkadoodles as I keep saying I love love LOVE these collections (Winnie White Christmas and Festive Christmas collection) the papers are just GORGEOUS. I have used the same design as my previous card (why change what you like) I have distressed them then added some cheese cloth to the back, made some paper straws and die cut a poinsettia which I coloured with brushos (loving these).

The image is called on a snowball from Mo Manning Which I have coloured with a mix of Prisma and Polychromo pencils. I stamped the sentiment which as part of a freebie set from a magazine (think it was Card making magazine)

To finish off the card I made a matching insert and there you have it another crossed off my list yayyyyy!!!!

Nordic Santa

Ok so I am trying desperately to get ahead with my Christmas cards, according to my list I have 6 still to make but it feels as though there should be a lot more so I have probably forgotten someone. Eeekkk not good.


Anyway my share today is made using a few kits from Polkadoodles  I used the image from the Nordic collection and papers from Winnie White Christmas and Festive Christmas collection (I adore the papers from this collection).

I distressed the papers (a lot) but haven’t inked them I have been good and resisted the urge lol. Then I added some corrugated cardboard which I coated in diluted gesso and added glitter.
I made some paper straws and a poinsettia flower (I have made a batch of cards in this style, quite like it).
The image is coloured with Prisma, plolychromo Pablo pencil. I added glitter to the printed sentiment and there you the outside done.

 I made a matching insert to finish off the card and Hey presto 1 down.

Hope you like it and I will see you tomorrow with another

Christmas Winter theme for Polkadoodles


Hello lovely crafty peeps I hope you are well I’m just getting over a very bad bout of vertigo (uuggghhh) but  hey ho .
Anyway we have gone weekly for our challenges over at Polkadoodles which is great for you guys as double the fun. We have some amazing new teamies so please pop over and say hello to them and make them feel at home.


So the theme this week for us DT girls is Christmas/ Winter and so as I am trying sooooo hard to get my Christmas cards done on time this year I have made it my mission to do as many as possible.


For this card I have made a card blanks 5½x6½ then printed off my papers which are from a couple of Christmas collections (festive Christmas collection & Twiggy &Toots) which I heavily distressed.
I made some paper straws to add to the side using the same papers then added a die cut poinsettia.
The image is coloured with my prisma pencils and is called Rudolph  from the Winnie White Christmas collection.


Finished off the outside with a simple greeting and then made a matching insert for the inside

White with a Hint

Anyway as always for you it’s anything goes for us we have a theme this week
For our challenge it was white with a hint don’t know if my brain took the hint about the HINT as there seems to be more colour than I realised eeeekkkk that’s what happens when you get carried away


My card is 8x8 and I have use papers and image from the Winnie White Christmas. The colouring is done a little differently for me trying to leave white space so just colouring the shadows 


To decorate I die cut the word Christmas out a few time in Kraft then in white and glued together but off set ot add shadow details then made the poinsettia and coloured with brushos (I love these my best buy at Doncaster )


Anyway there you have it hope you like it and I  will see you soon with another make
Have a fab weekend and if you’re going to the NEC HAVE FUN!!!!!!
