February 2020 with cute puppies..



Hiya peeps,

Its a new month for February over at 


As always its an Anything Goes and just for fun.


My card, as DT member, is a cute, real life looker topper
of  2 gorgeous puppies. The topper & some of the other items
used in the making of this card are from Hunkydory. The
ribbon, card stock (15x15cm) and the sentiment are from my
own stash. I havent used any foam tape or pads to emphasize
the height of the topper so its flat for postage.

CDT (Heather Valentin's Color Of Love) post for Jan 2020

Eleanor & Pickles Fishing For Love

My CDT project for January 2020 is
Eleanor & Pickles "Fishing For Love"

This digi image was drawn by Heather Valentin of
Color Of Love website & I really enjoy colouring her images.

I love colouring using assorted pencil crayons for over
a year ago and this digi, was, really no exception.
Having used a red fineliner pen by Artez, a Peabo white paint pen (on Eleanor's eyes). The digi was printed on to  used Ryman's 200gsm white printer cardstock, which is fabulous to colour on, no matter which  medium you,
as a crafter, might use.

I am keeping the image,as an A4 page until I can hang all the
framed images in the same frames.

I dont want to enter this coloured image into any craft challenges
as many of the challenges that I know are for a card or finished project.

I hope you like her as much as I do!!

Ben's Birthday Card:


For my youngest grandson's birthday this last year, on New Years Eve,
I made him the card featured below using:

2 x A4 sheets of Linen effect 225 gsm cardstock
1 x 12x12 inch sheet of Rainbow Mirri cardstock 
1 x A4 sheet of red cardstock

3m roll of dark red grosgrain ribbon

An image taken from the
Lichfield Hockey Club

Ben loves playing hockey, and enjoys playing for one of the mens teams
for the last few years that I recall, I cant remember how old he was
when he started playing for the club but he was only a young lad, at
infant school when he picked up a hockey stick, that had been left out
of the store room for some reason, when his dad was rugby training
early one evening.
