A-Z Christmas Challenge Y&Z!!!!

Good Morning,

I scheduled this last night as I'm not sure how things will go today.  At the time of writing this I've got a poorly Iona, she's been up and down for the last few hours with a really dodgy tummy.  There is a really nasty bug doing the rounds locally so I'm hoping that's not what she's got but it wouldn't surprise me.  Typically we have tickets booked for a show by a local kids group Performers UK who are doing numbers from Disney films.  Iona's pal is playing Flounder from The Little Mermaid and she is keen to see her, so I hope she's still able to make it tonight.

Ok on to my cards, and these are the last of my A-Z Challenge cards, Y for Young girl (scraping the barrel a bit now lol) and Z for Zzzz!

Y for Young Girl

Z for Zzzz

My Y card features a Hobby House topper by Sylvia Zet, Memory Box dies and MME Merry papers while my Z card features a Dovecraft glitter sticker, Sizzix die and freebie paper.

That's all from me for the moment,

Share An Oldie For Friday & A Slice of Pie...

Good Morning!

I had success yesterday morning with my first scheduled blog post so I'm giving it another go for Share an Oldie Friday as I will be getting ready to go to work when my post goes live.  As well as share an oldie it is also Dress Down Friday for me, my workplace does this the last Friday of every month.

My oldie today is a card I made just before I began to blog.  

The stamp of course is Gorjuss and I've coloured her with Promarkers.  I think a couple of years on I'm a bit better at colouring skin, she looks a wee bit pale here - peely wally as we say in Scotland lol!

The papers were magazine freebies, I think by Raspberry Road.  The sentiment is one of my favourites from LOTV.

Oh and if anyone read my post yesterday I'm happy to report that my Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie was a huge success if seconds all round was anything to go by lol!!!

Happy Friday, have a lovely weekend whatever you have planned.

DT Card for C.R.A.F.T Challenge #287 Christmas Present

Good Morning,

This is the first time I've tried to schedule a post so fingers crossed it goes to plan!  This is my first DT card for the fabulous C.R.A.F.T Challenge and I'm excited that my daughter Iona will also be joining me with her first DT card for the Junior team.  The theme this week is CHRISTMAS PRESENT and we would love you to play along.  There are some fantastic prizes on offer from our sponsors who this week are:

Ok, onto my card.  I was lucky enough to get a digi from one of our sponsors QKR Stampede to play with.  I chose Christmas Mail Snowman as I think it fits the theme quite well.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers and edged it with Stardust Stickles.  I've used 2 papers from the My Minds Eye Merry stack and the sentiment is by LOTV.  I've finished off my card with some spotty organza ribbon, pearls and a snowflake charm.  Not being used to American style mailboxes I had to resort to good old Google Images to find out what colour to make the flag. Although there were some variations, in the main they were red so hopefully I've got it right! 

On the subject of American culture I'd like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to anyone who celebrates it.  We don't as such here in Scotland but I'm going to try my hand at making Pumpkin Pie for the occasion!  Our big day, also coming up in the next few days is November 30th when we celebrate our Patron Saint - St Andrew!

A-Z Christmas Challenge - T to X

Good Evening,

Well the last few days haven't exactly gone to plan.  On Friday I was tied up for most of the day baking for the sheltered housing Christmas Fayre, on Saturday I was at the sheltered housing nearly all day.  These events I had planned for.  On Sunday, I almost forgot that Iona had a church service with Girl's Brigade then she had dance in the afternoon/evening.  On Monday morning I was working on a little project for the Cutie Pies then took my Aunt to prize bingo at the sheltered housing in the afternoon.  Yesterday I planned to have a craft filled day and get the A-Z challenge put to bed but a burst water main put the brakes on that.  First we had next to no water at home then the school had to be closed so I had to go and pick up Iona.  I managed to get five cards made eventually yesterday but I was working on them until late last night which I hadn't anticipated.  I was back at work today, just in again on Friday this week.  I thought I'd blog all yesterday's cards en masse to make life a little easier.  Anyway just two more left to do - the last day is tomorrow.  I think my Y card should be Y is for Yay! Nearly finished lol!

Anyways, here's some photos of my baking and my cards.  I've already got the brownies recipe on my  Homecooked by Hamill blog, I'll put the mint aero slice on shortly.

 T is for Tatty Teddy

 U is for Under the Mistletoe

 V is for Victorian

 W is for Window

X is for Xmas Tree

Once I've finished Y and Z, apart from my DT projects I think I'll be slowing down on the craft front a wee bit in the run up to Christmas or I'll never get my cards written, shopping done, wrapping up done, tree get the picture lol.

All the best,

Share an Oldie for Friday

Good morning,

I'd like to share a card that I made for Rab and I to give Iona for Christmas 2012.  I never got round to blogging it at the time as I took a bad chest infection just after Christmas that year then my Aunt took a stroke on New Years Day and I was off radar for some time.  Although it's a topper rather than a stamped image I quite like it because of the unusual colour combo.  The glitter ribbon looks purple in the photo but in reality it's a deep pink.

Apart from the ribbon, cardstock, dies used and embellishments all the other materials are by Papermania Me To You.  The star frame die is by Tonic and I think the glitter ribbon is by Dovecraft.  I remember being at the last minute trying to finish it off - on Christmas Eve if I remember correctly, oops!  Hopefully I'm more organised this year!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my oldie!

S is for Santa Hat & Stocking

Well hello again!!!

You must be fed up of me today, but I'm keen to get up to date with my blogging as well as the actual card making! 

Phew think that's me caught up with the Docrafts A-Z Christmas challenge now.  Here's S for Santa hat & stocking...

I've stamped the image with a stamp that was a magazine freebie a while back, it's been coloured with Promarkers.  I think this bear looks a little like Winnie the Pooh!  The papers were also a magazine freebie and are by Raspberry Road.  All dies are by X-cut and the sentiment is by LOTV.  I've added some gems and spotty ribbon to finish off my card.

As always thank you for taking the time to visit me and for any comments you may leave.

Q is for Quilt

Good evening 

I'm back woop woop!  I've managed to get caught up with the A-Z challenge.  I've made Q and S today, for R I'm using a card I made a couple of weeks back!

So, Q is for Quilt.  I've made a patchwork background kind of in the style of a quilt.

I've used my MME Merry papers again cut into swatches with a Spellbinders nestie die and added some faux stitching with a Micron pen.  The image is a Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps topper from Hobby House and it's mounted on a Spellbinders lacey circle mat.  The sentiment is by LOTV and I've added a ribbon bow and some pearls to finish.

Thank you so much for your visit, any comments you leave are greatly appreciated.

P is for Polar Bear

Good morning!

I'm feeling a bit brighter today and more in the mood for crafting and blogging, don't you just hate it when life gets in the way of crafting lol??!!  By life I mostly mean work, I was only in a day and a half this week but feel like I've been through the mill and like I've never been away from the place :(

On to some happy news now - I'm delighted to say I've been welcomed on to the C.R.A.F.T Challenge DT along with my daughter Iona who is on the Junior DT.  I will be joining the challenge fortnightly from next week, exciting!!!  They've just launched a new challenge today and it's an Inspiration Picture Challenge which you can link to here.

Ok, my card...  I'm a wee bit behind with my A-Z Challenge cards but I'm hopeful I'll catch up.  Today I'm on P although everyone else will probably be on S by now!  I've gone for P for Polar Bear.  I've wanted this Sugar Nellie 'Furry Friends' stamp for ages, It's possibly available in a digi format but I can't resist a rummage through the stamps when I visit the Papercraft Boutique in Elgin, which I was lucky enough to do last weekend.  They also had some of the new Sugar Nellie toppers by Hobby House and they look fantastic!

I've coloured the image with Promarkers, added some Stickles to the hat and gloves, then fussy cut around it.  I've used My Minds Eye Merry papers and added some more Stickles to the edges.  The snowflake circle die is by X-cut and I've used a LOTV sentiment on a Spellbinders lacey circle die cut.  I've added some crystal gems, blue pearls and gingham ribbon to finish my card.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

O is for Owl

Good evening,

I've dropped off the radar for a couple of days.  I've had a day and a half at work this week and I won't lie they've been pretty stressful.  Thank goodness I'm not back in until next Wednesday.  I've also taken my aunt out Christmas shopping twice this week already so blogging and crafting have taken a bit of a back seat.

My card is another for the A-Z challenge this time we are on O and I've gone for Owl.

The die set is from X-cut and I've used various papers from the Papermania Craft Christmas range and edged all the edges with distress ink. I've added a tag for the sentiment topped with red berries and also added some capsule collection buttons.  It's not too bad but I feel I could do it much better :(

N is for Noel

Good afternoon,

A quick post for just now in the hope that I get back on later.  I'm a bit behind after being away yesterday.  We had a fab day though visiting family AND some craft shopping in Elgin so it was well worth it.

Yesterday we were on N and I chose N for Noel.

I'm ashamed to say this was the first outing for my Sizzix Noel die I picked up last year.  I've used it with white pearlescent card.  The paper is Papermania Boofle Christmas as are the cardstock stickers.  My very simple card is finished off with red pearls, glitter domes and some gingham ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by, I'll be back with you later, at least once more today...

M is for music

Hello again,

I'm procrafternating I should be finishing a card for a first birthday but here I am on my blog instead :(  I'll have to get it done tonight though as we are travelling to Aberdeenshire to see the birthday boy tomorrow although his birthday isn't until Sunday.  Oh and as if getting huggles from the birthday boy wasn't enough reason to get excited for the trip I also get to visit one of my favourite craft shops on the way - Papercraft Boutique in Elgin!  

Anyway back to my card, here's letter M and I've gone for M for Music.  Back to the old decoupage again for this one but hey its Forever Friends so I don't mind at all!

The decoupage is from the Forever Friends A Christmas Tale collection as is the sentiment.  I've used a selection of Papermania Craft Christmas papers and added some gingerbread man cotton ribbon I picked up in a little drapers/wool shop/haberdashery in Dingwall.  The bell and bow are both from Hobbycraft.  Some pearls and glitter domes finish off my card.

Now I'd really better go and get that card finished!

Bye for now,
Shona xx

L is for Little Donkey

Good Morning!

I'm a day late blogging these although I did manage to get them on Docrafts last night.  I had a busy day yesterday.  Chores and crafting in the morning then I had my 3rd session of CBT in the afternoon, then it was straight to the after school club to pick up Iona and take her to choir practice.  After making and eating dinner my other half was on the pc (even though he has his own lap top pah!) so it was late on before I got my turn lol.

Anyway.  For L I was a little bit stumped, I had a look through my stamps and found nothing so I then turned to decoupage, which I don't do much of now, and found two possibilities for 'Little Donkey' - one cute and modern and one traditional Victorian.  I couldn't make up my mind so I went for one of each!!!

For the traditional Santa one I've used Papermania Victorian Christmas decoupage pack and some extra papers from the same collection.  The dies are Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and the lace is from Papermania Madame Payraud collection.  I've finished the card with some pearls, a button and spotty ribbon.

For the cute one I've used Papermania Boofle Christmas papers, decoupage and a sentiment from the cardstock sticker pack.  The card is finished off with ribbon, a heart shaped button, glitter domes and pearls.

I remember when I cut out this decoupage, I was babysitting for a friend and had taken this with me to pass the time, not being very used to cats I was sitting cutting out the decoupage and the offcut was getting longer and longer, much to my surprise one of her cats looked on it as a toy and started swiping at it!  It was amusing for about 2 minutes then it turned to annoyance as I couldn't get any more done and had to put it away lol!  Bless, I do like cats I just don't have any of my own so I'm not used to their little traits!

That's me for now, thank you for stopping by for a nosey.

A-Z Christmas Challenge - J & K

Good morning,

No work today!  I have put in my first 2 half days back at work and they went well.  I had a wee wobble after the first ten minutes but gave myself a pep talk and then it was fine.  Everyone was very welcoming and said they were glad to see me back so that definitely helped.  That's me off now until next Tuesday so hopefully I'll manage to get in plenty crafting time before then!

I didn't manage to blog yesterday so today I have two simple cards to share for the letters J & K of the A-Z Christmas Challenge at Docrafts - J is for Joy and K is for Kissing!

For 'Joy' I have used the Papermania Christmas in the Country collection and chosen one of the papers, some pre cut elements layered up to make the star and 'Joy' and a ribbon bow from the same range.  All I've added to the kraft blank is some brown pearls in each corner.

For 'Kissing' I've used the Papermania Forever Friends A Christmas Tale collection and chosen several papers, a topper and a domed sticker from the same range.  The border punch is by X-cut.  I've added spotty ribbon, card candi and gold gems to finish my card.

They're not the most inspiring cards ever but I'm trying to get into the spirit of using up some of my older stash.  I've got loads of decoupage sets and toppers from the days before I got the stamping bug that I'd like to use up to make some space and then I can treat myself to some new stuff - maybe more digis they don't take up any space at all, perfect!

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek at what I've been up to.

I is for Ice Skating

Good evening,

I'm back again, this time to share my A-Z Christmas Challenge card for the letter I.  I have gone for I for Ice Skating and used a Magnolia stamp.  I'm not a massive Tilda fan but I do have a few stamps now to pick and choose from but I think this one's my favourite.

I've coloured Tilda with Promarkers to match the unidentified but rather yummy paper that was in a bag of stash one of my crafty friends passed on to me.  I've gone a but mad with the die cutting on this one and used a Memory Box Frostyville Border and corner die as well as X-cut scalloped circles and Spellbinders Lacey Circle dies.  The sentiment set is by Paula Pascual and I've used Tim Holtz distress ink to stamp it for a change.  The only other additions are a Dovecraft doiley, spotty organza ribbon and some pearls.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit!

Cutie Pie DT Card - Festive Furry Friends

Good afternoon,

Ah so glad that's my first half day back at work done and dusted it won't feel so strange going back again tomorrow, it's just for the morning again then that's me until next week.  I usually work 37.5 hours a week but I'll build up to this gradually over the next 6 weeks.

Today's card is my DT one for the Cutie Pie Challenge and their latest challenge is Festive Furry Friends!  We'd love you to join us with your take on the challenge which must include a cute image!  Our sponsors this time are Stamp and Create and Meljen's Designs who provided the design team with some gorgeous digis to work with.

 I chose Cupid but it was a difficult choice as all their digis are just gorgeous.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers to match the papers which were a freebie a while back.  The sentiment is another one from one of my LOTV sets.  The image is quite big so I haven't added many embellishments to my card although I did find space for some MB Precious Hearts die cut in Kraft card topped with some red 'jingle' bells tied with bakers twine to match the reindeer theme.  My card is finished off with some gems and glitter domes.

I'll probably be back again later with my card for the letter 'I', see you then,

H is for Hot Chocolate


Just a quick post this morning as it's a busy day.  Our daughter is taking park in the local Remembrance ceremony this afternoon, she's representing her section of the Girl's Brigade.  It's also her main day for dance classes later in the afternoon, so I've been rushing around getting dinner ready to put in the slow cooker and getting some chores out of the way so I'm not chasing my tail later on.  I'm also back at work tomorrow, just for 2 half days this week but it's a start.  I chose to go in Monday and Tuesday mornings as that gets it out of the way and the rest of the week is my own.  The following week I'll do a whole day and a half day and eventually, over 6 weeks, I'll be back up to 37.5 hours.

Ok on to my card... We are on the letter H and I've chosen H for Hot Chocolate.  I quite like this cute wee stamp by Dovecraft of Santa's elf preparing a mug of hot chocolate.  That's Iona's favourite hot drink, especially if it's topped with whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate sprinkles like this one!

The image has been coloured with Promarkers to match the Papermania 12 Days of Christmas papers, this particular 6x6 pack was a freebie with one of the Creativity magazines and I actually prefer them to the 12 x 12 papers I have from the same range as the designs are slightly different and also more compact for card making.  Everything has been matted with Kraft card and I've used X-cut dies for all the circles.  Sentiment is by LOTV, Hobbycraft buttons and some gems finish off the card.

Enjoy the rest of the day,

G is for Green and Glitter

Good morning,

It's lovely and sunny here in Inverness this morning, I'm not sure of the temperature though as I've not stuck my head out the door yet!  I had a lovely crafty day yesterday.  I met one of my crafting buddies for a cuppa in the morning and in the afternoon I managed to make 2 cards then after dinner Iona and I had some craft time together and I managed to stamp and colour another 2 images.

Todays card is another for the A-Z Christmas Challenge - G is for Glitter and Green.  It's very CAS for me, I don't think I do CAS very well and they aren't very forgiving.  As far as CAS cards go I do quite like this although in hindsight I think I maybe should have embossed the white pearl layer for a bit more texture.

I've used a glitter sheet from a Papermania capsule collection pack I got ages ago in a goody bag and used it for one of the layers and for the baubles which were cut with a Die'sire die.  The white pearl layer was just a loose sheet from my local craftshop and I've stamped a Lucy Cromwell sentiment directly onto it with a Versamark pad then heat embossed with silver Papermania embossing powder.  I've used matching American Crafts baker's twine and added a crystal gem to each corner, that's it job done.  

Thank you for visiting my blog today, hope you have a fantastic weekend.

Share an Oldie Friday - Cross Stitch Poppies

Good afternoon!

Yes I'm back again already, this time to share another oldie for Friday.  I have another cross stitch to show you today, it's one I made years ago, I can't even remember how long ago, and it's very appropriate at this time because it's of a poppy field.

I'm sorry for the quality of the photo again.  It's so difficult to photograph anything framed with the glare the glass gives off and the reflection.  I made this for my aunt and she has it on display on her living room wall.  The design was from a cross stitch magazine and was a joy to stitch.

On the theme of Remembrance, I'm delighted that our daughter has been picked to represent her section of their Girl's Brigade company at our local Remembrance ceremony on Sunday.

That's all for now,

F is for Fairy Holly

Good morning,

It's another drizzly day here in Inverness, yet it's very mild.  Recently it's either been cold and dry, cold and wet or wet and mild - why can't we have dry and mild???  Well I suppose it's November we'd better get used to it!

Today's card is another for the A-Z Christmas Challenge and it's F for Fairy Holly.  This is a cute wee digi I picked up as a freebie from Pollycraft ages ago, I just happened upon her while I was tidying up some files on my computer.  I took the layout from a template I pinned on Pinterest although I've screwed up the proportions a bit and made the circle too small and the sentiment too big but nevermind it's not too bad I don't think...

The image has been coloured with Promarkers with a generous amount of Stardust Stickles added to the wings.  The papers are Docrafts Craft Christmas, capsule collection spotty buttons and a heart shaped button from Hobbycraft.

E is for Eskimo

Good Morning,

We had a super time at the fireworks display last night but boy was it cold!  I forgot both my phone and camera so unfortunately I didn't get any photos but take my word for it, they were spectacular!  Today I have my second installment of CBT, it was quite slow moving last week so I'm reserving judgement until after today's session but hopefully it will go ok.

Ok onto my card.  Today is day five of the A-Z Christmas Challenge so it's the letter E and I've gone for E for Eskimo!  I've used the last of my Mo Manning Eskimo Kisses toppers, I really must source some more or maybe even go for some of the digis and have a go at colouring them myself!  I love Mo Manning's artwork but I'm not sure that my colouring skills would do them justice.

My papers are Docrafts Christmas in the Country 12 x 12's, I've had them for over a year and I'm ashamed to say they've never been used before now.  I've opened the pack and admired them quite a few times but not got as far as using them lol.  The sentiment tag is from the same range.  As the image takes up quite a lot of space I've kept it simple and all I've added is a button tied with paper cord, some red ric rac and some coloured pearls.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

D is for Dog!

Good morning!

I'm happy to report a dry start to the day and the sun is trying to come out, although it is very cold.  Hope it will stay dry for our visit to the fireworks display this evening!

Today's card is day 4 and the letter D for the A-Z Christmas Challenge I'm taking part in over at Docrafts.  I've plumped for D for dog and I've gone for some non-traditional colours for a change.  The stamp was a freebie about this time last year and is Tilly's Christmas by Wild Rose Studio.  The stamp isn't particularly festive and with the colours I chose I thought I'd better choose a DP with some Christmas trees on it so there's no mistake lol.  Now that I've made this card I think I'll give it to my friend Kate and her family who have a gorgeous springer spaniel called Dileas (Gaelic for faithful) not unlike the wee pup in the image.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers to match the My Minds Eye Merry papers.  I LOVE MME papers but I'm not very good at using them I much prefer to just admire them rather than chopping into them but that's just me lol.  I've matted everything on to brown card to make the colours pop and added a paw print border with an EK Success punch.  The sentiment is another from my ever growing LOTV collection.  The image is quite big so there wasn't much room for embellishments so I've kept to a simple layout and finished it off with some pearls and brown gingham ribbon.

Thank you for visiting today and hope you'll bear with me as I make my way through the rest of the alphabet!

C is for Christmas Cracker!

Good morning!

Another miserable morning here in the North of Scotland.  I'd hoped to give the inside of my car a much needed clean today but the heavens opened.  I only got as far as wiping down the dash etc, the vacuuming will have to wait but at least that's a start.

Today I've got another card from the A-Z Christmas Challenge to show you - it's day 3 so we are on the letter C.  If you popped over to my blog yesterday you will know that I got some happy mail from LOTV yesterday as I'd picked up some papers and 5 of the retiring stamps in their halloween discount event.  They came at the perfect time as I wasn't happy with the Christmas Tree card I had made already for C and this cutie of James bear with a cracker was one of my purchases!

The papers are Classic Christmas from LOTV and the sentiment stamp is also one of theirs.  I've coloured the image with Promarkers then given it a spritz of Spray & Sparkle and mounted it on a die cut scalloped circle (X-cut).  The lacey circle dies are from Spellbinders and the star dies are also by X-cut.  My card is finished with gingham ribbon and some pearls.

Thank you for stopping by today all your comments are greatly appreciated.

Eskimo Kisses B is for Baby (A-Z Christmas Challenge)

Good afternoon,

It's another wet day here in Inverness and actually quite cold too.  I was feeling a bit down today, I've had a mad few days with Halloween parties etc so feel a bit flat now.  As if by magic the postie appeared with the goodies I ordered from LOTV during their Halloween event so as soon as I've posted this and tended to my DT duties I'll be having a play.  Actually, their arrival is really timely as I was struggling for something to make for the letter C for the A-Z Christmas challenge I am taking part in over at the Docrafts website.  I did make a card with a Christmas Tree but I'm not happy with it at all so now I will have something better, all will be revealed tomorrow!  In case you think I've ignored the letter A I've used the Angel (Little Ivy) card I made a couple of weeks back as I hadn't put it on my Docrafts gallery.

So on to my card for B...  I've gone for B for Baby and used one of the fab Mo Manning Eskimo Kisses ready coloured toppers.  I love these toppers soooo much!   My colours are also B's - blue and brown!

Sorry about the quality of the photo the topper is a bit shiny and was giving off glare so I had to photograph it again in the daylight with the flash off.  The backing paper is another from the Bellissima Christmas pack (another B!) and I've used my Fiskars Threading Water punch on the bottom edge.  I've added brown gingham ribbon, kraft punched snowflakes, gems and a LOTV sentiment stamped on to more kraft card.

Thank you for stopping by,
