Snowmen




A little crafty time yesterday, it was such a miserable morning too wet to be outside so time for play. Image from Bugaboo, paper from an old My Craft Studio CD and sentiment stamps from Lili of the Valley.I used a Tonic die to create the holes then hand stitched them with glitter thread.

A trip out for some Christmas shopping today, I hope to have bought most of my gifts by next weekend as after that I am away until the end of November. I hate leaving my gift shopping until the last minute, especially since I buy so much stuff on-line now, but a browse round the shops is fun.

Autumn







A CAS one layer card to celebrate Autumn, digi from Power Poppy , coloured with Promarkers and sentiment from Paulette at TLC. The colours are brighter but it was so difficult to get a good photograph.

Definitely an autumnal feel to the weather here and thankfully we seem to have escaped the worst of the rain. Loads of leaves to rake up and fruit to make into chutneys, jelly's and cider. Need to get it done as I am away on several trips/holidays between now and the end of November.

Naughty at the Alphabet Challenge





A big Thank You to everyone who visits and kindly leaves a comment, I really appreciate the time you take to do so.


Today's Challenge at The Alphabet Challenge is N for Naughty  and was chosen by Dawn. I found this image on a free Making card CD and wished it had been of a dog, a long search later I still had't found one so used the cat image, the "try and stop me" part of the sentiment was computer generated.

Our first dog was a German Shepherd who was a fantastic character but a terrible "thief " anything and everything to eat was fair game, he did eventually learn not to steal, but many a meal  was spoiled as he'd swiped the meat.


Do visit the challenge and see the cards there.

Lots of Layers with Oddball Art








The Challenge this month at Crafty Calendar is Lots of Layers and is sponsored by Oddball Art





We were able to choose an image to work with and I chose baby zombie bat  paper pieced the main body and teamed with free papers from Summer Driggs.(no longer available sadly) A Halloween card for my son who shortly after moving into his new flat had a visit from a bat, who wakened him during the night having flown in through the open window. No. 2 son filmed their escapades trying to get it back out and I can honestly say I laughed and laughed for ages.


Please pop over to the Challenge site and see the cards from my teamies. Thanks for popping in I appreciate your visit and comments.
