Sadly I can't take part but it would be great if you could join in the fun if you can. Suzanne puts on great Birthday Bashes and I know the girls will cook up a fabulous line up of inspiration for you all.
Suzanne's Copic colouring classes are second to none. If you haven't picked up your Copics and they are just gathering dust sign up for one, they are really good fun and will have you confident in using your Copics in no time. You will just LOVE what you learn on them.
Have fun at the Bash!!

I’m sharing this little card over at Make The Day Special today.
Pop on over there to see what Copics and stamps I used.
For my card I used the following sketch from Retro Sketches…
I seem to have lost my mojo so if you find it could you send it back to me please.
Have a great week!

Here’s what I made..
I was inspired by this lovely image and challenge over at The Ribbon Reel and some patterned paper that I found from way back, so thought I’d play along. You have to add a ribbon and flower as part of the challenge.
Here’s the set in full, isn’t it pretty! I’m so all about believing in your dreams too so it’s a perfect set for me! For full details of the colours I used and the fab funky sentiment pop on over to the MTDS Blog.
Have a fabulous Tuesday and keep believing in your dreams!

Sorry you didn’t hear from me last week, my hubby hasn’t been very well. He’s had several attacks of gout recently and we ended up at the hospital for an x-ray to see if there was anything else going on. Thankfully he seems to be on the mend now. We still haven’t figured out why he gets it though.
Anyway, on to today’s card for my post over at MTDS – a mad butterfly. I made this for my friend, she’s mad about polka dots and I didn’t want to do traditional colours for her.
I’m originally made this card for CAS-ual Fridays, to use silver. I’m not sure if it would be classed as CAS as I added some extra bits but their challenge inspired my card so I will enter it.
Pop on over to the MTDS Blog to see what stamps I used.
Have a great week!

Hopefully it will make him smile too when I present it to him in a glass of something. I think we often take life far too seriously, we need to add in some of that childlike fun back into our lives. Here’s mine, wish me luck. He will either think it’s funny or will get me certified as totally mad! If you don’t hear from me again you’ll know why lol.
For details of the stamp set and Copics I used pop on over to the Make the Day Special blog.
I’m entering this into the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, to use Polka Dots..
Have a happy day! Try and bring more fun into today somehow if you can.

I do have a creation to share with you though for my post over at Make The Day Special. I made this last week to match the little card I made my friend. I also made her a flower brooch to go with it, I thought the colours blended quite well so it felt like I was giving her a matching gift set.
This was the card from last week…
Finally this is the little crochet flower I made for her…
All I need to do now is actually post it to her! Please pop on over to the MTDS blog to see all the details of the stamp set I used for my little notebook and I will be back with you next week, hopefully feeling a whole lot better than I do right now.

What’s your weather like? I hope that if you’re having snow you’re keeping safe and warm. We’ve apparently got more coming tonight so who knows I may get stranded and have to do some crochet! Did I tell you I’ve been learning to crochet? It’s been on my to-learn list for-ever. So far I can do a flower and a granny square! I might share with you when I’m brave enough!
So onto my card.. Today’s card is for a lovely lady I haven’t known very long. She is such a generous, kind, knowledgeable and fun person. I feel really privileged to have met her. She has been giving me lots of her time recently so I wanted to make her a little thank you card. I thought this proud peacock was up to the job!
For details of what I used to create it then pop on over to the MTDS Blog for more info.
I used this latest sketch from Retro Sketches. It’s lovely, isn’t it!
As you can see I rotated the sketch and moved my sentiment around a tad so that he could show off his feathers proudly! Hope you like. He makes me smile!
Have fun, stay safe and cozy!

Hi there. I’ve got a simple little thank you card to share with you today.
I think I could have done with running this through PSE to straighten it up a bit, it is straight in real life, honestly!
For details of the stamp I used pop on over to MTDS where I give the details.
I used this sketch from over at Retro Sketches. Such a fun little sketch, a really great go-to sketch.
Hope you’re having a really good week. We have had a sprinkling of snow here today, what’s it like with you?

Today’s cards for my MTDS blog post are quick and simple. My friend wasn’t very keen, I think she thought it looked like it had been thrown together, but I think it’s quite funky. What do you think?!
Next up is another simple card, just a bit of colouring and some ribbon to give it a touch of candy cane colour.
I also made it in this colourway too…
Well I hope you like what you see. I will be back next week with some more Christmasness. For details of the stamps & copics I used check out the MTDS blog.
Have a great week!

Here’s what I created..
I used two of the Christmas sets from Paper Smooches ..
I have lots of these little ‘jester socks’ coloured in. They are soooo therapeutic to colour and you can do them while you watch tv. Ok so I’ve called them jester socks, what would you call them??!! I also coloured in some of the socks on the bottom left and the more traditional stocking just above it, eek. I LOVE Christmas!
I hope you have a fab Saturday whatever you are doing. We have friends coming over today so I’m guessing it’s gonna be a little hectic!

I thought I’d better start making some Christmas cards before it arrives, so here’s one I made earlier..
My bestie was over when I made this. Oh boy, talk about laugh ourselves silly, it was just one of those mornings, we had an hilarious time catching up!
I created this for my blog post over at Make the Day Special so pop on over there for all of the details.
Apparently it’s 4 weeks today to Christmas so you’d better get started on yours too!

I wanted to create a quick but fun and happy card, my friend is into cows so I thought this would be the perfect stamp for her. I think it’s a she-cow because of her eyelashes, what do you think?!
I very loosely followed the sketch over at Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. I tend to start with a sketch and then get a bit carried away but I hope you can see a bit of where my inspiration came from lol
For details of the stamps and Copics I used pop on over to the Make The Day Special blog.
Have a great Tuesday!
