MAWTT - Anything But a Card

 Hello... yes it's nearly Christmas,

but we've got a lovely challenge for you, in case you feel like getting crafty over the festive holiday!!


our lovely team leader Wendy has chosen a fab theme of

'Anything But a Card'

some examples might be.... a homemade... wreath, cake/s, sewing/embroidery, painting, knitting, crochet... 
anything that takes your fancy... except a card!   😉

I've been doing a Cross Stitch for the past few months. Just fitting in a few rows here and there. Finally got it finished in time for Christmas.... it's a Ho Ho Ho Banner Kit by Dimensions. It looked a very simple design when I bought it, but soon realised that there are a lot of colour changes for shading. I love the finished effect though, and it was a real joy to stitch. The kit comes with felt backing and wire hanger. But I decided to frame it instead.


I am giving this as a prize:

My prize is a Christmas village set, but I reckon you could use this for an Easter scene or for wedding, christenings, new home etc. A very flexible set of dies.

Please do pop over to our main site at MAWTT for more details... and there you can see the rest of the Team's awesome creations and a list of all the prizes that you could win!! I hope you can join us for this fun challenge...

Gosh, I can't believe that 2017 is nearly over. It honestly doesn't seem five minutes since last Christmas. Its been quite a stressful year for me, as mum isn't too well, and so crafting and blogging have been on the back burner. All I seem able to make at the moment is the CraftsUPrint decoupage kits. So I will probably be making more of them in the new year. I do enjoy making them though.

My lovely daughter is coming over to stay for a few days tomorrow. We are hoping mum will stay reasonably well over Christmas. I'm just looking forward to reading, doing some genealogy and enjoying the TV. Can't wait for Victoria and Call the Midwife!

I would like to thank you all for being such devoted followers and commenting. I know I am not around very much, but I will try and keep in touch. Looking forward to seeing all your creations for this challenge! ;-))

Hope you all have a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas!
Take care
Lots of Love

MAWTT - Christmas Animals

 Hello and Good Morning! it's the turn of Team B again over at


and our lovely Jennie L has chosen a fab theme of .....

'Christmas Animals'

I've made another CraftsUPrint Card..... it's a Kit called The Cutest Christmas Dog... and I think he's the sweetest little pup. The card was meant to be circular with a stand. But I decided to put the design onto a 6 inch card blank. I covered the card blank in red card as I thought it would tie in with his hat. Lots of decoupage on the flowers and bells, but it doesn't show up very well in the photo. I added pearls to the bells and gems to the bows. To finish, I added lots of sparkle to the fur trims on his hat, and also to the flowers.

It's been a strange month for me. I had a bad fall a couple of weeks ago. The Stairlift got stuck halfway down, with the fold down runner across the hallway. I went to phone the engineer, then came out of my room, forgetting about the runner, tripped over it, and went flying, and twisted as I landed. I went to A & E to get checked out and thankfully no bones broken. I've sprained my upper left arm and my lower right back. So it's been nightmare getting a comfortable position to sleep in. I had to sleep bolt upright for a week. Now I can sleep on one side. Things are improving slowly. I've got a bit of movement in my left arm now,  but think it will take a while to come up to strength. I'm glad that I'm right handed. I can do a bit of decoupage now!
 I'm looking forward to catching up with you all! 😉

MAWTT - Add a Charm or Tag

 Hello... Good Morning! I'm pleased to be back once again with Team B at


and our lovely Hazel has chosen a fab theme of .....

'Add a Charm or Tag'


I've made a card for my friend's son and his fiancee as they have just moved into a new home called Rose Cottage. I thought this kit from CraftsUPrint was quite fitting..... I've added a Good Luck Sentiment from LOTV and used a blank LOTV Tag to make the New Home one.

I've added a Lucky Four Leaf Clover Charm (top left)



Sorry about the rubbish photos.  I couldn't get any decent light when I took them, I think it was during Storm Ophelia.
I hope you can see the decoupage in photo below...

MAWTT - Geometric Shapes

 Hello... I'm back with Team B at


and our lovely Janice has chosen a fab theme of .....

'Geometric Shapes'

I decided to have a go at a Pop up card. My first attempt went in the bin. On this second attempt, the pop up bit isn't perfect but at least it works. You really do have to keep everything geometric when making the pop up part, otherwise it doesn't open!! I am pleased with it, but wish I'd had time to have another go!!!


Here is the You Tube video that I used to make the pop up part of this card:

I used Origami Papers to make the pop up flowers. The circular backing paper was freebie from Bearly Mine Designs long time ago.

Please do pop over to our main site at MAWTT for more details, and there you can see the rest of the Team's wonderfully geometric creations!! I hope you can join us for this fun challenge...

I can't believe it's October in few days time! the weather is very changeable at the moment. I saw about a dozen Red Admiral Butterflies the other day on the Elderflower Bush opposite. It seemed really strange seeing so many, as usually you see only one, or two at most.  It was lovely weather last weekend and so mum and I sat in the garden for a while. You have to make the most of the fine weather! ;-)

 I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs.

MAWTT - Add a Number

 Hello and Good Morning! it's the turn of Team B again at


and our lovely Judith has chosen a fab theme of .....

'Add a Number'

I've used a lovely Hunkydory Craft Kit and just added the number 3.


I recently ordered a Christmas Card Kit from Hunkydorycrafts and got a lovely surprise when I opened the package and found another free kit inside to celebrate their Anniversary. So I used the free kit to make the above card. I chose the card with the bunting on as background, and chose the other two toppers. I die cut the 3 out of matching card in the kit. Although it was a very simple card to make, I love how it came out.

Please do pop over to our main site at MAWTT for more details, and there you can see the rest of the Team's wonderful 'numbered' creations!! I hope you can join us for this fortnight's challenge...

I hope you all had a good Bank Holiday weekend in the UK? The weather was glorious here. My darling daughter came over to stay with us for the Sunday and Monday. She cooked mum and I some lovely Roast Dinners and I had a relaxing couple of days with some 'me' time. I did some crafting and genealogy. It was just what I needed, as mum hasn't been too well of late. I don't know where the time goes nowadays. I can't believe we are in September tomorrow!! Yikes. How did that creep up on me! I love Autumn though!
Will catch up with you soon! 😉
