Quick reminder


Hi there, just want to remind you about the fantastic event organised by The Stamp Man. To find out more check my earlier post or better still click on the picture in my sidebar to go over to the SM blog to get all the gen.

Tuesday Taggers - Let it Snow.

Hi everyone, are you getting excited? Only 3 more sleeps!

Well it's Tuesday Taggers challenge time again and this week we have a very apt challenge for you all. Let it snow! As usual you can create anything that takes your fancy and interpret the theme anyway you like as long as snow features somewhere. I know we've all finished our Christmas cards!? LOL! but you might have a last minute one that you could enter or even make one ready for next year!!!
This week the challenge is sponsored by the Craft Barn who have some fantastic crafting goodies on their site. £15 to spend for the winner chosen at random. So please join in the fun and if you need some inspiration pop over to the TT blog and check out the fantastic creations my fellow DT members have come up with. Good luck to you all who take part.

This challenge will run for two weeks with it being such a busy time.

I put the tag through the cuttlebug snowflakes folder and sprayed it with Crafters Companion silver Spray & Sparkle. Used my favourite little stamp of the moment and glittered. Papers & ribbon from my stash.

Looking forward to seeing your creations.

Have a good day. I'm off to the hairdressers for a trim.

Love, Pat xx

Jolly Old St Nick - Tuesday Taggers challenge

Hi there everyone, hope you are having a good day. Sorry I am late posting this but it's nearly Christmas, as if you didn't know, and I really wanted to get the shopping done and dusted today and yippee! I did. Well I might find myself wandering into a few more shops and coming out with bags heavier than I went in with but that's the fun of Christmas. We had the grandchildren stay over last night so no time to get on t'internet last night.
Anyway enough of my wittering on. The challenge over at Tuesday Taggers this week is to create just what you'd like as long as Jolly Old St Nick features somewhere.
Here's my bookmark. I used Grunge Paper to create this and coloured it using Cosmic shimmers mixed with Chrystal Laquer . Unfortunately the photo doesn't do the effect justice, it really does shimmer as the name says. I stamped the images using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer black sparkle embossing powder. I went around the edges with a silver Pen Touch pen although it doesn't show up on the pic.

Hope you'll pop over to the TT blog and take a look at the DT 's fabulous creations and then join in the fun with us. We'd love to see your take on the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and do come back soon.

Love Pat xx

Tuesday Taggers challenge and digi image winner.

Hi there, well I do hope you all enjoyed the hop and thanks for taking part in the fun. The winner chosen at random of the poinsettia image is Artyjen. If you email me you email address I'll send you the jpeg. Congratulations and good luck for the main draw.

Well today the TT challenge is The Christmas Tree and here is my creation.

I decided to get out the parchmentcraft stuff for this one. The pattern is one of Christine Colemans. I really find this craft so relaxing but unfortunately as I've always got so much on the go I don't seem to be doing as much as I would like. Perhaps in the new year!

Please pop over to the TT blog and check out the fabulous creations that my fellow DT's have come up with and join in with the challenge this week. We'd love it if you did.

Thanks for visiting

Tuesday Taggers Blog Hop!

Tuesday Taggers are hopping mad!!!!

Hi there and thanks for hopping over here today. We thought we’d spring into the Christmas party season by doing a blog hop today. We’ve got some great prizes up for grabs kindly donated by Jill from the Stamp Man and Tracey from Stamp Design
To be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is hop from blog to blog, leave a comment on each & collect letters on the way which will make up a word or phrase. When you’ve collected all the letters you will arrive at the TT blog where you should leave a comment and email your answer. The lucky winner will be chosen at random and the winner announced on Tuesday.

You should have hopped here from Michelle’s blog but if not just hop back to Michelle and follow the links. At each blog when you leave a comment you'll also be in with a chance of winning the digital image that has kindly been donated by our very talented DT member Teri. Teri has a shop where you can find all of her fabulous designs.

The image you can win here is a gorgeous poinsettia which I think is a very useful and versatile image to use. I’ve chosen to decoupage mine onto an easel card and here it is. Leave me a comment and I’ll choose a winner at random at the end of the hop. Good luck everyone!

So the letter you want from me is........
And the next blog to hop to is


Good luck everyone and don’t forget to pace yourself ‘cause it’s strenuous work hopping and you don’t want to wear yourself out now do you?

Good Luck everyone!!
