Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and looking forward to your weekend.  Our town is holding it's annual Raft Race this Sunday.  It is a great event where teams are encouraged to build their own rafts and paddle down the river through the town.  Lots of side stalls and entertainment is provided too.  Hopefully the weather will be kind to us when we sit on the river bank on Sunday with our refreshments.  I think a few nibbles and a glass of prosecco will go down nicely lol.

Anyway, onto crafty matters.  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  This will be an extended challenge and will last until the 27th August. 
Our theme for this challenge is:
Christmas Carols/Christmas Songs

Here is my inspiration project and I have chosen the song 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town'.


The image is from a Lily Of The Valley Art Pad.  I matted it onto red cardstock.  The background has been embossed with a snowflake embossing folder.  Some Ho Ho Ho ribbon along the bottom and some punched snowflakes finished the card.

I am looking forward to seeing all your entries to the challenge.  Just pop over to Winter Wonderland for full challenge details.  We have four sponsors for this challenge offering some great prizes so you don't want to miss out.

Like A Bat Out Of Hell....

Hi Folks
Thank you for all your lovely comments and good wishes on my post yesterday.  Very nervous to be starting a new job soon as it is totally different to anything I have done before.  But I am up for a challenge and looking forward to it too.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Use ribbon or twine

We have two lovely sponsors joining us this week:
Dr Digi - prize of 2 digi images to the winner
Little Blue Button Stamps - prize of a $10 gift certificate

Here is my inspiration project using a super image from Dr Digi.


When I saw this image I knew I had to use it as the song is from Meat Loaf - Like a Bat Out Of Hell.  I love Meat Loaf and have seen him 6 times in concert.  He never disappoints and would go to see him again in a flash.  Anyway, let's get back to my card.  I coloured the image using my promarkers and mounted onto kraft card.  The dotty paper is a freebie from a magazine.  I used ribbon across the front of the card together with a ribbon bow.  Some dazzlers and a couple of sentiments finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries this week.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the super creations from my talented teamies.

Happy Birthday

Hi Folks
Thanks for popping by today and hope you are all well.  I went for a job interview yesterday and was offered the job there and then.  Not sure when I start yet as they need to sort out references etc but looking forward to a new challenge.  Will have to get myself sorted into some sort of routine now lol.

Today I thought I would share a quick and easy birthday card that will suit both male and female recipients.


I used a large Happy Birthday stamp from Woodware for this card.  I stamped the image several times onto different patterned paper and then pieced together the letters.  The backing paper is mounted onto black card.  No further embellishments added apart from some faux stitching.  Of course you could jazz it up with buttons, flowers etc if you wished.

Would love to know what you think.  I do appreciate all the comments and support you give me.

How Charming at Winter Wonderland

Hi Folks
Hope you have all had a good week and looking forward to your weekend.  Our local rugby club has a beer festival on this weekend so I suspect we will be paying them a visit on Saturday.  Would be rude not to lol.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  Our theme for this week is:
How Charming
We would like to see you add a charm to your christmas projects.

Here is my inspiration project.


For the main image I used a stamp from Woodware which I stamped onto kraft card.  I added a bit of colour with some promarkers and then added lots of stickles for the sparkle.  The backing papers are from our sponsor, M R Designs, and they are also matted onto kraft card.  A die cut snowflake, ribbon, bow and charm completed the card.

Our sponsor for this challenge is:
M R Designs who are giving the winner a 20.00 euros voucher to their on line store.

It's Christmas at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
How are you all?  Sorry I haven't been around much the last few days.  We spent a lovely weekend away with some friends on the Norfolk coast.  There were 14 of us sharing a large beach house and it was lovely.  We were actually sunbathing on the beach on Saturday and Sunday.  But back to reality and now trying to get myself organised again.  It is surprising how even three days away can mess up your routine.  

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Christmas in July

We have three sponsors joining us for this challenge:
Bugaboo Stamps - prize of 7 digi images to the winner
Sunsational Stamps - prize of 5 digi images to the winner
Digital Delights - prize of a $5 gift voucher

Here is my inspiration project using a cute image and sentiment from Bugaboo Stamps called Christmas Sheep.


These days I seem to be going along the route of simple layouts and less embellishments.  This card follows that theme.  All the matting has been done onto green glitter card.  The background paper was in my christmas paper pile and I must have had it for about three years. The image has been coloured using promarkers and I did add a touch of distress ink around the edge of the image and sentiment.  A large button brad and some paper trees were the only added embellishments.  Not sure is you can see it clearly but I also added lots of glamour dust to the image for added sparkle.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the super inspiration from my talented teamies.

Anything Goes at Crafting Musketeers

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  I am looking forward to the weekend as we are going to Norfolk on a long weekend break with some friends.  We go tomorrow and come back on Monday.  So looking forward to a little break and spending some quality time with hubby and friends.  Not sure if there will be any wifi access so apologies if I am not about much commenting.

Today I would like to share some inspiration for our current challenge over at Crafting Musketeers.  Our theme for this month is:
Anything Goes
Our fabulous sponsor is Crafty Ribbons with a prize pack of some ribbons to the winner.

Here is my inspiration project featuring ribbons from Crafty Ribbons.


I started with the background by dabbing distress ink through a honeycomb stencil.  The birthday stamp is from Woodware and was stamped and embossed.  The matting is done on brown coloured card.  I wanted this to be quite simple so I added ribbon to two of the sides and tied a little knot on the bottom corner.  Quite effective and could be suitable for a male or female.

Thanks for popping by and would love for you to enter the challenge.  Just pop over to Crafting Musketeers for full challenge details.

It's All About The Sparkle

Hi Folks
The weather has taken a bit of a turn today.  It is not cold but we have had a few showers.  Perfect day to spend a few hours in my crafty room lol.

Today I thought I would share a card that I did quite a while ago using products from Imagination Crafts.


The patterned card is from Imagination Crafts and I used a stencil and sparkle medium for the flowers and dragonflys.  The sparkly purple background card was created by brayering sparkle medium onto white card.  The addition of some ribbon, gems and small flowers finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really do appreciate all the lovely comments that you leave me.

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and had a good weekend.  We have been to our local town Carnival this afternoon.  Luckily the weather held out and we didn't get wet.  Of course hubby had to buy a lovely Victoria sponge cake from the local WI stall.  It is his favourite cake and he can't get enough of it lol.

Anyway, today I thought I would share a sample I have done for the new CD Luv 2 Txt which is being launched by Kraftyhands on 18th July.  The CD is just perfect for all those teens out there and has images and papers suitable for both male and female.  The CD is available to preorder here and you can see a video walkthrough.

Dinosaur Gift Box

Hi Folks
Hope you have all been managing to make the most of the nice weather we are having in the UK at the moment.  Long may it continue.  I do love being able to sit out in the evenings with a nice cold drink.  Just a bit too hot for me during the night to get a good night's sleep lol.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Kraftyhands.  Our theme for this month is:
Wrap It Up
We would like to see you use your stash to create lovely gift boxes and packaging.

Here is my inspiration project using images and papers from the Dangerous Dinosaur CD which can be found here.


I used a popcorn box template that I have had for ages to cut out the basic box using white card.  The sides of the box are covered with papers from the CD matted onto some blue box.  I cut out one of the small toppers and attched to the handle of the box using some green ribbon.  I also put some green ribbon around the bottom of the box.
A really quick project but this would be ideal for any dinosaur loving youngster to receive a gift in.

Holidays at Little Claire Digi Challenge

On Your Wedding Day

Hi Folks
Hope you have all had an enjoyable weekend.  Spent Saturday afternoon with my daughters at a local event in our town for Armed Forces Day.  The weather was gorgeous and lovely to see so many people in our town supporting the event.  Today has been a bit quieter and a a day for catching up on things before the week ahead.

Today I thought I would share with you the card that I made for my Daughter and Son-In-Law for their wedding.  


I wanted to use the colour scheme of the wedding which was Royal Blue for the card.  My new Son-In-Law is a supporter of our local football team - Peterborough United - and their colour is blue.  Heather decided to choose their colour as the main theme for the wedding which did please Gary immensely.

For the card I used various embossing folders and dies.  The background is a swirly embossing folder, I added versamark to the folder before embossing and then sparkly embossing powder.  The frame die is a Sue Wilson die and I also used her lattice weaving dies for the inner background to the frame.  The roses were created with a bitty blossom die from Spellbinders and I added some Memory Box die flourishes.  A ribbon bow and some pearls to the corners etc finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really appreciate all the lovely comments that you leave me.
