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! 😉

MAWTT - Things That Fly

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


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

'Things That Fly'

so birds, kites, hot air balloons, planes, insects - whatever takes your (flight of) fancy :)

I've made a card for a friend's birthday that has butterflies on.....


CraftsUPrint - Flapper Rose Card with Decoupage - Julie Hutchings


I used a CraftsUPrint Decoupage Kit by Julie Hutchings. I scaled down the sheets to 74% when I printed them out, so that the main topper would fit on a 6 inch card. But if you do this then you have to remember to scale down the decoupage sheet also, to keep the images at the same size. I printed it onto semi glossy photo paper and love how it came out. I added some Star Dust Stickles and some Pearls to finish off.

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 high flying creations!! I hope you can join us for this fun challenge...

Talking of things that fly!!!  Time is one of them.... I can't believe it's August !!! where is the time going this year!!
 I'm looking forward to catching up with you all! 😉

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


and our lovely leader Wendy is hosting a fab challenge of

"Wedding - Anniversary - Engagement"

and there is a prize for one lucky winner too!!!  (see end of post)

I have to confess that I was really struggling to find my mojo this month... I thought I might not manage to make anything...but then my daughter said that she needed a Wedding Card for next weekend, so at the last minute I found my motivation and made two -  I thought she could choose the one that she liked best. She couldn't decide as she loved them both!! what better praise eh!! :-) so she is gonna have them both as she wants one for another wedding later in the year.

Here are the cards....



I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT for more details and see the rest of the Team's fab romantic creations and hope you can join us for this fun challenge!

But I am enjoying Poldark and Mercy Street - both really good dramas! :-))

MAWTT - Embossing Wet and/or Dry

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


and I am hosting a challenge of

Embossing Wet and/or Dry

I love all types of embossing - it always adds interest and elegance to our creations...
so I've made two cards - one using dry embossing and the second card using frantage....


Sentiment: Anna Marie Designs
Flower: Bo Bunny
Embossing Folder: Sizzix - I think? not sure of name


The gorgeous image for second card is LOTV Printout Sheet and I've coloured over her dress and hat in the image, as I wanted to change tone slightly to blend in with the papers. Papers are Wild Rose Studio Antique Library.


Here's a close up of the frantage. 

I hope you can join us for this fortnight's challenge - if you pop over to our main site at MAWTT then you can see the Design Teams wonderful inspiration! 

and there is a PRIZE too!!

here's what you could win!! 
as no winner came forward for the prize last month, Wendy is kindly offering it again for this challenge. The winner will be picked at random.

PRIZE!!


Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them!
Looking forward to catching up with you all soon!
Love and hugs

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!
