Crafting When We Can DT - Clean & Simple

Good Morning! 

Hope everyone is okay and the weather isn't too bad where you are. It's pretty dull and wet where I am. We just haven't had any snow yet...

That's a nice tie in to the new challenge over at CWWC this fortnight. 
 Clean & simple is the challenge and we are sponsored by


I've used the image Christmas Decor which can be found HERE.


The image has been coloured using promarkers. I may add some glitter to it as well. I'll update the post if I do :) I've used a snowflake embossing folder for the background and added some red gems to contrast with the green layering and the green ribbon. 

A super quick post from me today. Enjoy the challenge!

My Time To Craft DT - Time & Space

Good Morning! 

Hope everyone is well on this dull morning.. I'm back this week. I really struggled with the decoupoage challenge from last week at MTTC. You know when you try so many different images and nothing looks right?! I had that. Then admitted defeat :( 

But, this weeks challenge isn't a struggle, for me anyways :) 

"Time & Space" is our new challenge. 
You can think outside the box with this one. The possibilities are endless.

I've gone with Space & even made a christmas card! 


This super cute guy is from Digi Stamp Boutique, he can be found HERE. The sentiment comes with the digi too. I've coloured him using promarkers. I couldn't decide whether to glitter up his christmas hat, so I didn't but no doubt I will end up doing so! LOL 
I think I will be using him a lot this year for my christmas cards. 

Looking forward to seeing how the theme is interpreted. 
Thanks for stopping by :)

Crafting When We Can DT - Use Your Makers

Morning! 

Was great to see how people interpreted last weeks black and white theme. I was undecided when I did my image but glad I went with the grey scale image too. 

Anyhows, on to this fortnights challenge....

"Use your markers" 

For this challenge we are sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs and we want to see you use your markers. This could be promarkers, copics, sharpie's, spectrum noir's.... etc. 

I used promarkers for my image. I tend to mix with Spectrum Noir's and Promarkers. I like how both work but I'm always undecided as to what to use! I'm clearly no good at making decisions! 


I used the image Dark Fairy Sassy which can be found HERE
These are the list of Promarkers I've used: 

Skin: Dusky Pink, Blush & Ivory - Pastel Pink for the cheeks.
Hair: Henna, Cocoa & Cinnamon
Bodice & Tights: Cool Grey 5, Cool Grey 4 & Ice Grey 5
Boots, Lips, Gloves: Burgandy, Ruby & Poppy Red
Skirt: Shale, Purple & Orchid

The sentiment I had with a digi image from Simply Betty Stamps. Fits quite well tho :) 

 A CAS card from me.. I had to re-do it. As I went to take my picture, I knocked my tea over and it went all over this card and my Mom's birthday card. Not a happy bunny! 

I hope you all enjoy playing along this fortnight

My Time To craft DT - Farm Yard Animals

Morning! 

Now I'm hoping there are no hiccups with the blog post going live as for the first time in about 4 years, I'm having to work a saturday!! Wow. I don't work Saturday as I work every Sunday.  My choice, I find Sunday's boring lol. 

Anyways, our new challenge over at MTTC is 

Farm Yard Animals

Here's what I've got: 


I went for sheep! They are coloured using Spectrum Noir pens. Of course I had some twine and a button! I printed the greeting off the pc. A CAS card but I wnated the image quite predominant. 

Have fun with the challenge. I'm hoping the saturday doesn't drag! Enjoy...

My Time To Craft DT - Charmed

Morning! 

A whole weekend off from work this weekend... eeeek! 
That only calls for one thing, lots of crafting! YAY! 

We have a new challenge over at MTTC this week, which is 

"Charmed" 

So use a charm on your card. I must admit, I struggle with these as I never know how to use a charm (as funny as it sounds) 


I wanted to keep the card quite clean and not knowing what the colour scheme was, I wanted to keep it neutral so went with all white. You can't really go wrong with all white can you. No buttons from me on this card but I did sneak the twine in. The flowers in the top right corner are die cuts along with the swirls. The image is from Tiddly Inks. The white cardstock is backed onto silver shimmer card too.


Have fun using your charms!
