Welcome to my Blog!

Hello Crafters! Crafting is my escape into my own little world full of ideas. Some of my best creations are produced in the early hours of the morning out of my craft cupboard …. hence ‘Open all hours’. Plus, as I have three lovely small children, often, evenings, weekends and late at night is the time when I can concentrate on making cards.

Colour Create Sunday Challenge - Week 15, Blue & Green ...

Good afternoon everyone,

What a lovely day, I should be planting the plants I bought in the week for my hanging baskets, but when I saw the colours on today's 'Colour Create' challenge I thought, I must use my little 'Lilli of the Valley' dragon stamp. So here he is for his first outing, he's such a cute little fellow...

Image coloured with Copic Markers, (I'm still addicted to using them!).

Enjoy the rest of your day, bye for now.

Colour Create Sunday Challenge - Chocolate, red and cream...

Hi everyone,

Amazing! I managed to get a little more time for crafting today. I love the colours for this week's 'Colour Create' Challenge, Red,chocolate and cream. I nearly used these colours for the PB Challenge on Saturday but changed my mind, so when I saw the colours I knew exactly the papers I would use. I love 'Stampin up' papers as it is so easy to match everything up. Check out Jackie's House of cards. Jackie is a Stampin' up demonstrator. The 'Gorguss girl' is one of my purchases from Ally Pally, I think they're so sweet.

I can't believe how quickly this weekend has gone, I wish it went as quickly when you're at work!

Here is my card, hope you like it....

Penny Black Challenge - Week 47 - Shapes

Hi everyone,

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend. I haven't had much time for crafting lately so it's good to get back to it today. I had already coloured in the little hedgie earlier in the week with my Copic markers so I couldn't resist using him for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I have used a rectangle and a circle and punched out some flower shapes and some swirls. So hopefully that covers the 'at least three shapes'. So here's my card...

Bye for now and enjoy the rest of the long weekend,
