MAWTT - Butterflies

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


and our lovely team leader Wendy is hosting a fab challenge of

🦋 'Butterflies' 🦋
Wendy is kindly giving a prize set of John Lockwood's Stamps this month for the top winner, to celebrate her upcoming birthday! 

PRIZE!!

Time has been short again this month, and so I have chosen to make this card using a beautiful kit from CraftsUPrint. This is a card for my mum to give my daughter for her birthday next week. My daughter doesn't look on my blog, so know I am ok to show it! She loves Art Deco and my mum wanted me to make a card with flowers on... so this fits the brief perfectly. I've printed it onto thick photo paper, then stuck it onto a 8 x 8 blank card and cut around. That way it is nice and sturdy. I really enjoyed doing the decoupage and love how it came out! :-)




I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT  for more details, and to see the rest of the Team's fab flutterby creations!! I hope you can join us for this fortnight's challenge... I'm really looking forward to seeing your entries... all those butterflies will be so beautiful !! 

Our garden is looking lovely this year.. it's not very well tended, but somehow the plants keep on coming up each year and flowering! :-)
I'm typing this at the weekend and have just been sitting out and enjoying some sunshine. It was so peaceful and the blackbird was singing and the bees were buzzing... finally it feels like Summer!! but I'm scheduling... this so by Thursday morning it might be cold and wet!! but hope not!!
Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them!
Will catch up with you soon!
Love and hugs

MAWTT - Birds and/or Feathers

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


and our lovely Jackie is hosting a fab challenge of

Birds and/or Feathers

this theme is perfect for the time of year, as you can include all those Easter Chicks!!
or if you want to make an early start on those Christmas Cards, then why not Penguins? ;-)



A very simple card as I'm so short on time. I've used a lovely pre-coloured image from a LOTV Art Pad and teamed it with some Wild Rose Studio Paper Antique Library. Just added some black borders to add interest. Finally, added some golden gems. Sentiment was freebie in magazine. 

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's birdy/feathery creations!! I hope you can join us for this fortnight's challenge. 

I can't believe how long it is since I last posted!! My life is very hectic at the moment - I seem to be going through a very rough patch, and I get one thing sorted and something else pops up.....but won't moan too much on my blog, as this is supposed to be my Haven after all !!! ;-)
 I'm hoping that things will improve for me soon!

I'm looking forward to Easter. I really hope my mum stays well and we can enjoy watching our Dvd Programmes and scoffing our Chocolate Eggs!!

I'm looking forward to catching up with you all!
Wishing you all a Peaceful and Happy Easter!!!
Love and hugs

MAWTT - For a Man

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


our lovely Beckie is hosting the challenge this week and has chosen a theme of:

'For a Man'




I love doing male cards. I've made a Birthday card for my daughter's partner. He loves classic cars and so chose this fab vintage topper from Cardmaker's Delight. I've kept things very simple as he likes 'Less is More' style cards and clean lines. The sentiment is from Anna Marie Designs. The paper is Basic Grey - Little Black Dress.

For more details, do pop over to our main site at MAWTT and you can see the rest of the Team's male themed creations!! I do hope you can join us for this fortnight's challenge... I'm looking forward to seeing your entries! 


Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them!!
Love and hugs

MAWTT - Swirls and/or Curls

First of all a Very Happy New Year to everyone!!!
 I know I'm a bit late, but would like to wish you all the best for 2017!
 I hope it's a good year for us all.....

It's the turn of Team B over at


and our lovely Hazel is hosting a challenge of

' Swirls and/or Curls'

I think you will have guessed... that we would like your creation to have Swirls and/or Curls! 


I've used a lovely vintage topper with some vintage paper. Added lots of silver stickles around the edges.... and some Swirls and Curls.... and Pearls !! My darling daughter bought me a Bosch Glue Pen for Christmas - it's great for sticking on flowers and embellishments... so quick and easy to use... just what I need right now! :-)

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT for more details and there you can see the rest of the Team's gorgeous Swirly and Curly creations!!

It took me a while to make this card, but I got there in the end... I enjoyed making it, and I'm happy with it !!

I can't believe we're in the middle of January already! I know it's cold, wet and miserable, but it's so nice to see it getting bit lighter in the evenings!!  Roll on Spring eh! I'm hoping a lot of my aches and pains will lessen when the warmer weather arrives. 

Love and hugs

Wishing You All... A Very Happy and Peaceful Christmas!

Hi all,
Sorry I've not posted for ages. I was hoping to put some Christmas Cards on my blog, but came down with a bad virus a couple of weeks ago. I'm well on the mend now though :-) 

The presents are wrapped, and we're stocked up with yummy food... so think we're all ready for the big day! My daughter is here with Mum and I for a few days. So we're looking forward to watching some nice programmes on TV and relaxing.

I just wanted to say big Thank You to all my lovely friends and followers!
Hope you and your families have a very
Happy, Healthy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year!


Lots of Love and Huge Hugs,

MAWTT - Christmas Scenes

 Hello again... I'm back with...


our lovely Jan is hosting this week....
and she wants to see any creation using.....

 'Christmas Scene/s' 

I've been very short on time this year, so I've only managed to make a few Christmas Cards. I used CraftUPrint Sheets The Winter Scenes Bumper Kit by Julie Hutchings. This is a fab kit and great value as you get 8 winter scenes. Each sheet has extra flowers for decoupage. I've layered the flowers and added some red nailheads for berries and some Star Dust Stickles.

Hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's Christmassy Creations!!
We hope you will have fun and enter the challenge.... and remember you can enter up to three times, but please no backlinking.
Closing date is 1pm GMT 21st December 2016

I'm sorry that I've not been around very much... mum and I have had loads of appointments this last month. Time sure does fly when you are back and forth to doctors and hospital !! I think maybe I need to invest in some shares with our local taxi firm!

Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them! I will try and catch up with everyone over the next few days.
Love and hugs
