Its all about the hair colour OH and a DT call!

Hi Ya all

Its Top Tip Tuesday Challenge day
and we have a huge post today

We are having a DT Call this fortnight.

 We're looking for a few new members and would like to invite you to apply if you'd like to be considered to be part of our friendly and mad about crafting team.

Its my turn to host this time and I chose
the theme

It's all about the Hair colour!

I want to see your best hair colouring
this can be male or female.

Our sponsor this week is The East Wind

I am using the gorgeous image called Aurora Daisy
My Tip is you can make your own sparkly dots
but using glue dots and ultra fine glitter.

I chose Blue as my favourite colour is blue and I love colouring her hair blue so different and so much fun! and using Christmas papers she can be a Christmas card or a winter birthday as I have yet to add a sentiment

Here are some challenges I am entering my card for:

The Crazy Challenge - Use Ribbon or Lace
Christmas Card Challenges - Christmas or Winter - Anything Goes
52 Christmas Cards Throwndown - May Stash Challenge is Ribbon - Blue velvet ribbon
Christmas card challenges - Anything Goes
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes + twist: Add Some Texture = Glitter glue dots see above.
Hope you can join us
Hugs me

Happy Birthday Sweet 16!

Time for a new As You Like It 
Challenge and the theme this time is
Favourite decade / period in your life (& why).
This could be a special date (Anniversary / Family Xmas) 
or a period of your life (eg your childhood).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Our sponsor this time is

My interpretation of favourite Decade/Era is when I became 16
Its a special birthday 16 a young woman not a kid!


I am quite a bit older! COUGH!

When special family friend daughter's turns 16
it reminds me of when I turned 16 and shopping shoes and clothes.

I also made a matching box

Here are some challenges I am playing:

Alphabet Challenge - JFF - G for Glitz & Glamour
Sweet Stamps - Favorite Colors definitely blue and yellow combo with a splash of brown.

Beans and Joy

Hey all how are you?
My Broad beans are doing ok We covered them up 
with Hay to protect them from the frost we are still having and thankfully so far....
They are growing and not getting frost bite! yay!

The Runner beans that were killed but the frost a could of weeks ago went to the
recycling heap and I have planted some more... I have noticed 1 peeping through the soil
in the greenhouse so fingers crossed they will be ok too!

SO then... with the Joy of the Broad Beans being Ok 
and onto a New challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge

The Challenge theme J for Joy
