APTTC December

 Hi and welcome to another great month of inspiration from the team over at 

A Perfect Time To Craft

This months challenge is kindly sponsored by 

Dr Digi 

The image I chose this time around was little Christmas themed one.


I printed him out 2 times and coloured them all the same apart from the middle image.  He is a "faux"  Added a few presents and a sentiment ( a mix of SU ones current and retired).  The background was made with a stencil and oxide inks.  

I just love this cute little furry guy.  Just perfect for the dog lover in the family this Christmas.  

Happy Crafting.

Penguin V.2

 I am back today to share a project that compliments yesterdays post. 

So the previous project I used traditional red, green and gold.  This project I done in the baby blue white and silver.  And I have to say, I am a traditional girl through and through, but this colour combo is definitely growing on me year after year.  

See!  It really is pretty. Gives a cool feel.  And here in Australia right now we could use a cool change.  We are in the middle of a heat wave.  Not pretty...hehe. 
This was just a short post to share the "other"  version of my penguin pop up.  
I am off now to make more of both these cards and many other cards I have on order.  I would have to say this has been the busiest year yet. And I thank all those wonderful people for supporting my crafting habit.  
Happy Crafting.

Festival of Christmas 2020- All Out Christmas

Here we are.  On the countdown till that jolly, red dressed fellow visits once again.  
I am up to date well and truly on my card making (makes a change) but I really should hurry up and organize presents.  Nothing like leaving it till the last minute.  Hehe. 

Today I am sharing a pop up card I made using MFT Holiday Penguins.  
This is one of those sets that at first glance you just know you can make it into a pop up.  

Usually this is where I share the links to others blogs but this week was not a good week for most to join in.  Life just got in the way.  Fingers crossed we will have more participants in the weeks ahead.  Have yourselves a great weekend. 
Happy crafting.

Crafty Christmas Club - November Edition

Whoohoo!  It is getting closer!  1month to go and counting. 
My project for this month is all about the year we just had.  Not very pretty but totally fitting.  

I used a mix of Taylored Expressions dies, Elizabeth Crafts die and Sassy Club stamps.  

Below are the links for the others playing along today. 

I hope these projects bring you some Christmas inspiration. 
Happy Crafting.

 Is it just me> Is anyone else getting excited for Christmas?  

Playing along with blog hops is a great way to fill your stash very quickly.  And this year I have made more Christmas cards than ever before.  

It is 

Sketch Saturday

 time again.  Obviously, Christmas, was my theme for this one. 

I used 2 MFT Christmas sets for this one.  
Secret Santa and Holiday Penguins

You will notice in the next few weeks just how much I have used these penguins.  Seriously cannot get enough of them.  
I did remove the flourish element on this one.  I found with the images I used I did not need it.  Also the sentiment has been placed in the center instead of off to the side.  Otherwise I stuck to the original sketch.  
There could be some fun leading up to Christmas so stay tuned. 
Happy crafting.

 Welcome to another great week with 

Sketch Saturday

This weeks sketch is #635

I felt like doing something a little different with a Christmas card.  This one is not as straight forward.  You could use this one for those that are over this year and just want to start a fresh.  No Christmas cards but many cocktails to see you through...whoohoo!

The stamped image was one from the Picket Fence and Simon Says Stamp collab for Stamptember. 

The paper is from SU (retired).  The "Bring On 2021" was done in my word document so I could print out as many as I want.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expresion.  

Very busy for me but I am loving that bird of paradise in the background.  

Don't forget to play along with this weeks sketch for your chance to win a prize.  
Happy crafting!

So Thankful

It is a month of thankfulness, and there are plenty of reasons to be thankful.
Now I think this theme is mainly timely for the US creators. So I added some spring colours for us in the southern hemisphere.

The new beautiful stamp and die set from Stampin'Up. Quite Curvy.  I love the purples in the pattern paper ( left over Sale A Bration from from last year).  
Copic markers for the flowers and leaves
YG67  YG25
BV11  RV17

I have never dabbled to much with mixing different colours together, mainly just stayed in the colour groups, but I love how the purple and pink blended nicely together in the flowers.  Added gems in between the pattern cut outs.  Nice little touch.  

And looking on side on I popped the top white panel and the blue strip sentiment (Taylored Expressions).

Ok, now don't forget to check out all our other participants playing along.

Me (you are here)

Thanks for looking.  As we near Christmas we will be ramping up our hop frequency to help those a little stuck for inspiration.  Stay tuned.  
Happy creating.
