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 Challenge – Spring colours

Apparently, Monday was the first day of spring.    Hmmm…it was wet and windy here in Bristol, but the sun came out eventually.

My card today, for the new Creative Moments challenge uses a digistamp from

I coloured the sweet fairy and her friends using Promarkers and embellished with some wooden lasercut toadstools, which are also coloured.  The sentiment was typed onto the page before printing – all ready for Mothering Sunday, next weekend. The wings were printed separately to allow me to shape and decoupage them for dimension.

Her children arise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

Proverbs 31:28

Hello,  I have made a very pretty card for this latest callenge at Creative Moments – and unusually my card contains no colouring.  I used a Floppy Lattes digistamp and sponged around the sillhouette using distress inks.  Have you spotted the Barbara Grey masked-off moon?


My challenges today will be: – use a digi – pearly, girly and swirly – things with wings – pearls – lots of layers – anything goes with markers – anything goes

I hope you liked the card which is much fussier than my usual style.

Yours in crafting,

Scrapper’s Delights – Freestyle Bloghop


Hello and welcome to the Scrapper’s Delights Bloghop!

I have created a very different card this week as I was playing with some of Scrapper’s Delights fabulous digikits.  They are very reasonably priced and are available in the Scrapper’s Delights store.

I imported the digikit elements into Craft Artist and set out my card design.  I then copied and pasted some individual elements to cut out seperately and layer up to give my design some dimension.  The whole design was then mounted on a purple 6 x 6 card.  I had to finish with some glitter, of course and used 2 shades of purple.

I hope you like the finished card.  🙂


17thJuly blog hop 1

The individual parts that were cut out were curled slightly and fixed to my card wthPinflair for a 3D finish.



The digikit I used is called Fairytopia and is available here Scrapper’s delight is giving you 20% off on the use of the coupon below!
