OK, so I'm a little late with this. But consider it a midway (and some) reminder. The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is still going on and is a super easy anything goes challenge. We are sponsored by My Creative Scoop.
I went with another Candy Cane Tag. Again of the wee pup Theo. This one is digi from Mo's Digital Pencil called Mel. Coloured with Polychromos Pencils blended with Sansador using Paper Stumps. The Tag is an MFT die along with the stitched circle. I think the scallop circle is Spellbinders. The hat is a die cut too, but can't remember whose.

The Son got his Girlfriend a puppy for Christmas. A very cute Collie dog. So even though he is the present, he still has to get a 1st Christmas card - right. I have used the super cute Colorado Craft Company stamp sets. Coloured using Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper stumps. The papers are Papermania. I printed the Christmas and wrote the rest. Not that I like my own writing.

I decided to make some Candy Cane Tags. I printed some Buffalo Plaid paper out and die cut with an MFT Tag die. The circles are MFT too. I just love Nutcrackers, so these stamps were a no brainer. These Nutcracker Stamps certainly came to life when coloured. Coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper Stumps.

I have used silver mirri card. But it really doesn't like having it's photo taken. Haha. Kept it pretty simple really (OK very simple). The Penguin is Bugaboo which I have had coloured for ages, so thought it was time he made it to a card. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley. Used a snowflake embossing folder and a Martha Stewart Icicle punch.

When I saw this Taylored Expressions stamp setm I just knew I needed it. I love this one. The horse is a stamp set from Your Next Stamp and just went with the sentiment. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs. I have made a wee pizza box. So simple to make.
Thursday, 12 November 2020
I made a wee pizza box. I need a few of these made, so you may see a few more. I think the image is from Dis Digistamps, but I can't seem to find it amongst my images. It has been coloured in for a while just waiting to be used. Coloured with Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps. I have added some sticles glitter on the snowflakes. I don't use it much these days, but have loads. I seem to use wink of stella for my sparkles now.

I have made a very simple gift card holder. I have made it big enough that a folded note will fit nicely in it too. The image is a simply print from Lili of the Valley. James the Bear here. The papers are from a First Edition Christmas pad.

Oops running a bit late here. But anyway, a new challenge has started over at Cute Card Thursday. The theme this week is Halloween. I'm quite enjoying making Halloween bags this year. We are sponsored by Dis Digi Stamps.
I decided to make a wee something for the Granddaughters Cousins since there wont be any Guising this year. Well, what started off as a wee sweetie cone has turned into a bag with a cone, juice and crisps. Think I got a bit carried away. Haha. But hey - I enjoyed making it. The image is a new Lili of the Valley one. The background is digi papers from Lili of the Valley too. I'm loving these with the images which come in different formats. I have used a PNG one here. The ghosts are a Memory Box die and the name is a Tim Holtz Bigz die. I have coloured him with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps.

I decided to make a wee bag for Big Sis for Halloween. I told her I was making up some bags for the Grandkids and I think she was feeling a bit left out. Haha. I decided to change my colour scheme for this one. Halloween is always orange, green or purple for me. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Boo Crew by Digilicious Design. A Martha Stewart web border die. Memory Box Pumpkins. Marianne Designs Web doily thing. Whimsy corner web. Impressions Obsession Bat. The ticket is an old digi sentiment from Whimsy. The image is here from All Dressed Up.

I made a wee Popcorn box for some Halloween treats. They are quite dinky, but turn out cute. I got the die from Stampin Up, but it was a lot smaller than I thought. But that's OK, it's cute - haha. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs. I used dies for the cobwebs from Whimsy Stamps. But it's an old one, so don't know if it's still available. The Penguin is a digi image from Whimsy Stamps from here or in rubber here. The Ghosts are dies from Memory Box, again rather old. And the chocolate is all eaten. Haha.
Thursday, 10 September 2020
I got the new background die from Whimsy Stamps here, so went with that. I decided to use Magical Unicorn from All Dressed Up to go with the rainbow thing. I had the ribbon already sitting there. So it all came togeter nicely. I added the sequins because they were there too. Haha. I can make things without patterned papers, but I had to think about this one.
Thursday, 3 September 2020
For my card I have used Gnome Fishing. A super cute digital stamp. I have coloured him using Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper stumps. The papers are from a very old 12x12 paper pad by My Minds Eye. I had a wee tidy up (only a wee tidy, I am easily distracted) and found a big pad hardly used. The grass is an old Quickutz die and the buttons are an MFT die.
Thursday, 27 August 2020
I have made a bottle tag with a pocket for a bar of chocolate. It is actually measured to take a bar of Lindt chocolate. But a smaller big bar of Cadbury's fits in too. The bees are from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and can be found here. I used Distress Inks for the background and added a few sequins. The bees are coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador with paper stumps.
Thursday, 20 August 2020
For my card, I went very simple with my embossing. I die cut the banners from an MFT die. I embossed the larger white one with a Crafters Companion embossing folder. The image is a pre coloured image from Dustin Pike and you can find it here. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and can be found here. I was planning on using a different sentiment, but my Big Shot die cutting machine died. So I went with what I had cut already. I'm looking at it now thinking I really want another sentiment on there though. I don't do cutting with scissors, so will have to wait. Although my Birthday is coming up, so plenty of hints to Hubby. Haha.
Thursday, 13 August 2020
I have used Bucket and Spade from All Dressed Up Stamps. I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper Stumps.The papers are from Echo Park. I have realised I obviously don't do bright colours. I don't have many bright papers. I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday although I have rotated it.
Thursday, 6 August 2020
I have made another sticky note calendar. I'm getting a bit carried away making these. I have used a super cute gnome from this set by Dustin Pike. And the best part is - it's digital, so instant. Yay. I have coloured him with Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps. The papers are digi too from Sweet Shoppe Designs. Adventure:Badger by Studio Flergs. I managed to get a wee black mark above the gnome. But saved the day with a wee wooden bee. The honey comb is a die from Whimsy too.
Thursday, 30 July 2020
I decided to make a tag with a pocket. Not that you can see the pocket. I printed the image a bit too big. But I decided to use it anyway. But I made the pocket, then didn't know what to put in it. Luckily it was big enough to fit these wee Dairy Milk Little Bars. Takes 2 nicely. Like it ws made to measure. Haha. Anyway, the papers are from Sweet Shoppe Designs - All Hallows Eve by Kristen Cronin-Barow. The tag is an MFT die and the ghosts are Memory Box. The Boo is a digi from Whimsy Stamps, but don't know if they are still doing it. The image is of course from Bugaboo and you can get him here.
Thursday, 23 July 2020
I made a box/bag thingie for this one. It fits a mini bottle of wine in. I found the wee chocolate Santa, he must have avoided being eaten. So I used him as a prop then ate him - haha. I used Dear Santa from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. I have coloured him using Polychromos Pencils and blended using Sansador with paper stumps.
Thursday, 16 July 2020
I then decided to add it onto a bag instead of leaving it as a card. We all need some gift bags - right. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Happy Holidays by Zoe Pearn.

I have used a retired rubber stamp for my card this week from Whimsy stamps. You can find some of the collection here in the UK. The dies are a mix. I was going to colour them in but sat them on top to see how they fit. Thought they looked OK white, so stuck them down before I changed my mind.
Thursday, 25 June 2020
For my make this week I have gone with a sticky note calendar. I quite like making these. I have used Happy Hummingbirds from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. The papers are pretty ancient, which I found while having a wee tidy up. I've decided that I really must use blues more often. Coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps.
I am going to enter this into the Kraftin Kimmie Skrappy Challenge where they want to see anything but a card.
Thursday, 18 June 2020
I have used the super cute Toucan Surf from Whimsy Stamps. The papers are a very old pad I found, don't know who by. The sentiment came with the image.
I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday, so am entering it over there.
Thursday, 11 June 2020
I have used an oldie for this one. It is an old stamp from Sugar Nellie from their Little Cotton Rabbits range. The papers are from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Black Pearl by Misty Cato. I think the tag is a die from Whiff of Joy. And a wee MFT die cut button. Pretty simple really.
Thursday, 4 June 2020
I got a Popcorn Box Die from Stampin Up a few years ago. But erm it stayed unused until this week. Anyway, it sure is kinda cute. I decided to use this Mermaid Tail clear stamp from Whimsy Stamps. I got mine from here at Dies to Die for in the UK. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Like a Mermaid by Meagan's Creations. The Seahorses and shells are dies from Whimsy too. The box is super cute, but I still managed to fit 10 wee chocolate sweets in there. Now to find a cellophane bag to fit it.
Thursday, 28 May 2020
I just love these couples over at Bugaboo. And this one is Person to annoy. I have split the sentiment up so I could add the rest inside the card. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs. A whole Llama fun. The flowers are MFT dies.
And a wee look inside. I just mirrored the outside really. But did it digitally to keep it flat.
Thursday, 21 May 2020
I have made another sticky note calendar. I have used this super cute dragon from Lee Holland. This one is pre coloured but you can get it as digi too. Just printed some green papers and die cut some flowers. Pretty simples really.
Thursday, 14 May 2020
My card this week is very pink. I got this cute dragon from Lee Holland Art. He is already coloured here or digi here. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs.The curved die is an old Spellbinders that I've hardly used. Don't know why. The flower is a Britannia Die. Kept very simple.
Thursday, 7 May 2020
For my card I used Penguin Bubble Bath from Whimsy Stamps. Coloured using Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper stumps. Although I don't think I am liking the pink shower cap. But it's done now (unless I print it again and stick another cap on top - haha). The papers are very old Papermania ones. I printed the sentiment.
Thursday, 30 April 2020
I have used an old retired Sugar Nellie stamp for this one. The papers are an old pad from Lili of the Valley. I think it was a freebie from a magazine. The dies are all MFT and the sentiment is Lili of the Valley.
Thursday, 23 April 2020
I used a cute Stamping Bella Piggie for this one. He's been sitting around waiting to be used, so I thought now was the time. I coloured him using Polychromos Pencils blended with Sansador using paper stumps. The papers I have had for a few years. (OK maybe a wee bit longer haha). The sentiment is a Kraftin Kimmie stamp set.
Thursday, 16 April 2020
I made a matchbox Easel card for this one. I bought a matchbox die (Sizzix) years ago with the idea of making Advent calendars. Does a card come close to that. haha. I would put some chocolates in the drawers. They fit 3 wee individual Dairy Milk Chocolates in each drawer.
Anyway I have used this cute Bee from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Sweet as can be. Of course being a thicker card, I had to make a box too. so it fits nicely in the box. Don't know that it will post well though. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs - H is for honey by Grace Lee. The honeycomb die is from Whimsy Stamps - here.
I'm going to enter the box into the Kraftin Kimmie Scrappy Challenge. Anything but a card. Although I feel a bit of a fraud with the box as it's only the sentiment I used. But I'll enter it anyway.
Thursday, 9 April 2020
I made a super quick Gift Card holder. But I must confess, the inner white bit is stuck down squint. Bummer. But I'm guessing a nice wee gift card in there could divert your attention. Yeah.
Thursday, 2 April 2020
For my card I used the freebie TP Dudley. And how cute is he. He definitely brought a smile to my face. I also wanted to make a Rainbow, like the kids are making and putting in windows. Then I thought about a pot of gold. Then the idea of the toilet paper came about. It's definitely like gold just now. I had a cloud embossing folder on my desk, so thought that would be perfect. No idea who makes it though. The Rainbow is an MFT Die and the Scallop Mat is Creative Expressions. The cloud is W Plus 9. He is coloured with Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps.
Thursday, 26 March 2020
I have made an ATC for this one. Maybe I'll punch a hole in it to make a Tag. Oh the options. Anyway the papers are digi from Pink Petticoat. The stamp is Skinny Bird Easter from Bugaboo. Coloured with Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador with paper stumps. A few die cuts and a nice and simple ATC.
Thursday, 19 March 2020
I made a nice bright card for this one. Colours I really don't use. But I think I like it. Coloured with Copics. The image is from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps from the set called You're Sun-sational. The papers are erm VERY old. A mixture of dies. The Sun is MFT the sandcastles and bucket and spade are cut and make from The Range I think.
I am going to enter it into the challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps where they have an anything goes theme.
