Something different.

Well this is going to be a quick one today as I am suffering a migraine.
The Tuesday Taggers challenge this week is a little bit different.  We'd like you to share your favourite projects from the past year with us.  The challenge is sponsored by Lovin' Ink so please pop over to the TT challenge blog to check out the prize and also see what the DT have chosen as their favourites.

Here's one of mine

I'll pop back to share more when my head calms down.
Keep safe and warm
Love, Pat xx

The Stockings were hung................................

This week at Tuesday Taggers we would like you to follow the theme of "The Stockings Were Hung......"
I decided to get out Sheena Douglass's Bah Humbug stamps again and I used Copics to colour it.

Well I know just how busy everyone is at the moment but if you can find the time we would love it if you would join us for the challenge this week.  For more info and to check out the DT fantastic creations please do pop over to the TT challenge blog.
Why is it when the think you've finally  got everything ready for Christmas you think of something else you must get. So once again I hope to get finished today, hoping aren't I?
Catch you later,
Pat xx

I'm doing this post wearing my new glasses which I've had for when I'm working on the computer.  I normally wear varifocals but the optician advised that I had some intermediate vision specs which should help when using the puter.  So far so good except when I try to multitask and watch the TV at the same time.
I got a new pair of the varifocals too and was amazed at the difference they made. I'm hoping they help to cut down on the headaches that I've been getting so much lately.
Anyway just want to let you know that I have a tutorial over on the Crafters Companion News, Views and Inspiration blog.  It's quite a simple little card but one that I love to use and it always looks really effective.
This is the card.
Also just a little reminder that there is a £50 voucher up for grabs on the Crafters Companion monthly challenge blog.  You can either follow the sketch or the theme of Christmas or both and you don't have to use Crafters Companion products but if you do you will be entered into the random draw twice.
Hope your Christmas plans are coming together. Just got a couple of bits to get and then I'll be a happy bunny.
Bye for now,
Pat xx

"Deck the Halls"

It's time for another challenge over at Tuesday Taggers and this week the theme is "Deck the Halls".  The challenge is sponsored this week by 

Lovin' Ink
who are offering the stamp set from Michelle's Compos bug box
I've  used an image from Jayne Nestorenko's Adorables CD and the holly sprays are stamped using Sheena Douglass's stamps from the Bah! Humbug! 1 stamp plate coloured with copics. I've highlighted the berries and fruit with diamond glaze.
It would be great it you would join us this week, and also as we are going to be revamping the TT challenge blog in the new year we'd love you to leave us comments with any ideas you  might have. 

Hope your festive arrangements are going to plan. I'm getting there slowly and hope to get my cards in the post today.
Thanks for stopping by.

Happy 1st of December, have you got your advent calendars ready?
I've got the old faithful one out that I made many years ago and has become a family tradition.  It's  a fabric one with little pockets for the goodies which are always chocolates, yum yum!

Well being the 1st of the month it's time for another challenge over at the Crafters Companion challenge blog.
This  month there is another sketch, this time by Leann, to follow with a Christmas theme. Don't forget that you don't have to use CC products to enter but if you do you'll be entered twice into the random draw to win  the fantastic CC £50 voucher, now that's  what I call  a prize!

The DT have created some brilliant cards to inspire you so please do pop over to check them out and join in this month.

Here is my card
I decided to go with Jayne Nestorenko's Adorables which are so aptly named. The papers and decoupage image are from the CD. I love this gorgeous collection and the accompanying stamps are wonderful.

Keep safe and warm
