Hello everyone, I've been AWOL again but I have an excuse as I've been away on a last minute holiday
It was a bit of a change for us, we went to North Iceland
It was absolutely amazing, what a fantastic place
The Northern Lights were weak and we couldn't go whale watching because of the blizzards but I think if those 2 things had gone to plan it would be my most favourite trip ever... and I've been on a few

The challenge this fortnight at AYLI is Christmas or Birthday and I went with Birthday.  I love making Christmas cards but because all our family birthdays and anniversaries are spread between December and March I don't usually get chance to make any until those are all out of the way.
These stamps are a bit different for me but I needed a couple of cards and didn't really want cute, it's a set from HunkyDory…

The sentiment stamp and scalloped border die are MFT, I use them both a lot


You can enter the challenge and find all the details on the AYLI blog


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend

Favourite shape or fold...

Good morning crafty friends, thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is well
It’s been a funny old week, I haven’t had a spare minute yet don’t seem to have actually got anything done!


The AYLI challenge for this fortnight is your favourite card shape or fold. I don’t often make shaped cards so thought I’d try something different
This Z fold is very simple to do and I really like it for a change…

This die is actually my favourite shape at the moment, it’s the MFT stitched tag corner stax…

…the eagle eyed amongst you will notice that they are the same fairies, I made this card and then had an unfortunate incident with a glass of wine! I managed to save them and used them on the first one

The little fairies are LOTV downloads from their Etsy store and the greeting is from the large magical sentiments stamp set

Watch out for news of the new cute Spring stamps from LOTV which we'll be sneaky peeking soon. We have some lovely new teamies too so lots of lovely ideas coming up for using the new images


You can enter the challenge and find all the details as well as some fab inspiration from the team on the As You Like It blog

Have a great Thursday
