My Favorite Things Have a Yappy Birthday Card

Good morning all.  Hope you are having a good day.  Todays post is a birthday card I made for my OH using a number of products from My Favorite Things.

His surname is Yapp hence the Yappy Birthday sentiment.  I'm sure he didn't mind about me making fun of his name.....


For my card I have used:
The doggies and sentiment are from the 'Four-Legged Friends' stamp set by My Favorite Things.
The background was stamped using Steel Blue Hybrid ink and the 'Paw Print' background stamp both from My Favorite Things.



Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon..... x

February Crafty Calendar Challenge Card - Two or More Layers with Dr Digi

 Good afternoon, I hope you are well today. 
I've had a little bit of a stressful January, three weeks ago my assistant at Brownies announced she was leaving at the end of January and being unable to find a replacement at short notice I had no choice but to close the unit.  It was a bit upsetting having to close but it takes a lot of time and commitment to run it and I think it is time for a change.  After volunteering for 27 years there was a lot of sorting out to be done and a major declutter has taken place.

But we are now in February, a new month and time for a new challenge over at

Our challenge for this month is
'TWO OR MORE LAYERS'
on your projects


For my card I have used:
Quackers from Dr Digi's House of Stamps coloured with copics and cut with my Scan n cut.
Polka Dot paper is from the Wild Rose Studio 'Vintage Rose' paper pack and the heart paper is 'Chocolate Candy Hearts' by Scrappy Cat.
Sentiment is from the My Favorite Things 'Tweet On You' stamp set.

Good morning all.  Hope you are having a good day today.

I've had a couple of days of work so Friday was a shopping trip to Cheshire Oaks looking for bargains and on Thursday I went to the Birmingham NEC Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts show.  I managed to pick up some crafty goodies and had a go at making a polymer clay Christmas decoration, my first time with polymer clay was okay but if I was doing it at home I would have taken a little more time over it.

Today is the first Saturday in the month so we have a new challenge over
at Crafty Calendar and our theme for this month is:
AUTUMN COLOURS
so time to find out those browns, reds and oranges for this months projects.


For my card I have used:

Three images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set by My Favorite Things coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.
The orange tartan paper is from the Craftwork Cards Contemporary Tartan 8 x 8 paper pack and the autumn leaves paper is from the Docrafts Tilly Daydream A4 paper pack.
The green leaf was cut using my Cricut and the fall leaves file from the Creativebug set.
Happy birthday sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn Scripty Sayings stamp set, stamped with versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Other items from my stash.


No sponsor this month but we have a great craft stash surprise for one lucky winner.
