This delightful digistamp from

is designed for St. Valentines day but I was making Christmas cards and the pattern on her dress put me in mind of a row of Christmas trees. I snipped out the valentine’s heart and mounted with Christmas trim upcycled from one of last year’s cards. Don’t you just love it when digistamps are super versitile? Have a look at the Creative Moments challenge blog for more inspiration with this digi.

Creative Moments Challenge – Anything goes

Well Hello from Bristol this Mothering Sunday.  I have just watched Songs of Praise which was a blessing.   I have been treated today but still miss my own mother , despite it being nearly 19 years since she went home.  I feel for those who can’t be with their loved ones today, due to risk of viral infection, especially my own sister who is home alone with her low immunity :-(.

But to look on the bright side…  In between distance teaching and marking my classes work, I think I will get in more crafting than usual over coming weeks and some time in the garden.

My DT card for Creative Moments this week is made using a digistamp called Flower Doodles from

I coloured the image using Promarkers using really subtle colours.  It was then mounted on a 7 x 7 ” patterned card.  I have decided which friend will get this card.



Stay safe people – God bless you

Creative Moments Challenge – For the Girls!

Greetings!  My blog posts seem to be few and far between these days – I can only put this down to the pressures of work and family.  I have three teenagers at home and I am a teacher.  This week has been 1/2 term.  so that has been lovely and I have managed to get some crafting in.  This does mean that I will be spending the weekend working though…

But to more enjoyable matters.  My DT card for Creative Moments is made using a digistamp called Stardust 3 , from:

I coloured the image using Promarkers and then dug out some very old stash to mount it.  The papers are from Hot Off The Press – one of my favourite paper brands.  I had a small amount of this paper left and cut around the flowers and butterflies to make it look as though the little figure is pepping out from behind the flowers in the garden.  I finished off with a sentiment topper from Hunkydory and some iridescent glitter.

Creative Moments – Just for fun challenge

I am so deigghted with tnhis new paper from Stampin’Up!  combined with a hand-coloured image from Mo’s Digital Pencil – it is perfect for my sister’s birthday today.  She loves to wear orange and I love to wear red – though we carry a few more years than in Mo’s gorgeous digi image.  And our mother loved toadstools.  Summer might just have officially started but I love these autumnal colours together. I have used Promarkers to colour the girls.

The sentiment comes with the image too.  DO take a look at Creative Moments for more beautiful projects and to enter our challenge.

Easter Bear

This lovey bear is from the Me to You range.  The die-cut decoupage was layered up and presented with just a sentiment and some egg embellishments in a CAS Style.



Creative Moments challenge – Add some bling

The new challenge, starting today at Creative Moments, is add some bling.  I have made an 8 x 8 card, which is super sparkly for the add some bling challenge.
