Natalie & Amy's 'Stitch It' Challenge

Good morning, I hope you are all well and enjoying this mild weather we are having at the moment. 

As soon as I saw the challenge this month at Natalie and Amy's I knew what I wanted to do. I absolutely love this image and had found the dress form in the Silhouette Store to match it awhile ago, I added the stitching down the middle and across the waist to match the image. I also added stitching to the image and mat layer along with around the border strip across the middle.

My Time To Craft 'Hobbies' Challenge

Good morning all I hope you are all well and busily crafting away for Christmas. I certainly need to make some more Christmas cards but I also have 4 birthdays to come before that and still have those cards to make yet. 

This week at My Time To Craft we are looking for cards or projects that feature 'Hobbies', the only thing I could think of that I had an image for was fishing so I tried to look outside of the box and came up with 'Art' as it is something we as paper crafter's do in some form or another and so that is where I went with it. I used this image from Sugar Nellie which I have had for absolutely ages and I only used once I believe, that is really bad isn't it.   

Supplies:-
6" Card Blank - Natalie & Amy's
Card Stock - Bazzill

My Time To Craft 'Tag It' Challenge

Good morning ladies. I can't believe it is Saturday already where did that week go, the weeks seem to be running away and before we know it it will be Christmas already.

We have had a super busy week and feel like nothing has got done, we only had Harley one day this week but have had to go to collect the children from school a couple of days. I say we but really I mean David lol. 

Talking of David he brought me a lovely present this week, he surprised me with the other 4 sets of Spectrum Noir pencils so I now have the complete set. They were supposed to be for Christmas but he is worse than a child and just cannot keep a secret, hence I have got them now lol. 

I was also super surprised to see my youngest son Jake this week who I have not seen for nearly 2 years after he moved away from home and I couldn't get to, to see him. He is now back for good and will hopefully be staying in Lincolnshire.

 Well after all my trials for the week I am here to bring you another challenge for My Time To Craft which this week is 'Tag It' so make any kind of tag. I made my tag to go with the card I made last week but I forgot to photograph the back side of it, so will do it in the morning and add then. I cut the tag on my Silhouette Cameo and added the same image as my card for the front of it, on the back I did the top part the same, then added a white section in the middle for a message and a patterned strip across the bottom. I tried to line up the Merry Christmas words so they were visible.
