BBTB2 - Gift Boxes



Hello Friends. How are you doing?
Sorry I still seem to be missing in action.
My son hasn't been well and he is in for his scan today. Thank you for all your well wishes.
Hopefully we will finally get to the bottom of things.

I finished doing my extra work hours last week...yippee! And we are off for a few days of pampering and golf in Wales later this week.

Today is my turn to host over at BBTB2 and I chose gift boxes.
I love stacked boxes that are tied up with ribbon and so that was my inspiration....


I used Sweet Tooth Boxes and cut at 7" 8" and 9" for the boxes.
I love the choice of box lids on this cricut cartridge ...I just wanted plain lids.


The ribbon is from dovecraft.

The DP is Nordic Christmas by First Edition.
I love that these only took 3 sheets of 12 x 12 paper!

Do check out all the fabulous inspiration from The DT Ladies and I hope you join in the fun with us.

Thanks for looking in.

BBTB2 - Cow Milk Carton

Happy Monday!
Hope you had a great weekend.
This week the lovely Sharon has challenged us to use a cow over at BBTB2.

I used my cricut Imagine!!!!! Wasn't even sure if this ornament still worked!
I love the cow image from Imagine More....


I cut the milk carton from TBBM2 at 6" out of acetate and added some milk bottle candy.

I had to take a piccie real quick as the boys were trying to free the candy!



Hope you like my milk carton.
Do check out all the fab inspiration from the team.

Thanks for looking.

BBTB2 - Leaves



Hi, how are you doing?
Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and we are using Fall leaves.


I cut 3 leaves at 1.75" from Artiste.
Crumpled them, inked them and added some bronze and gold gilding wax.
I machine stitched them to the card and stamped a Paper Smooches greeting.

Sorry I haven't been around...I  have had a very poorly son who is getting much better now.
I hope to get some time and catch up with you all really soon.

Thanks for dropping by, Do check out all the amazing projects from my team mates.

Happy Monday!
Is it me or is this year flying?

A very clean and simple card from me.

Added some white enameling for texture.
The DP is Bo Bunny Double Dot & Avery Elle(love) - Brights

My DT sister's  have lots of fluttering inspiration to amaze you with, so do call by and check them out.

Happy Birthday Dad!


Hi, hope you had a fab weekend.
Saturday was Hubby's birthday and yesterday was our anniversary.
Slightly less celebrating than anticipated as Ossian collapsed with stomach pains - suspected appendicitis! He's doing ok at the moment.

Today is my Dad's 80th Birthday and as you read this I will be helping throw him a party.
This week over at BBTB2 Mayra asked us to celebrate cricut and use any cut we like.
Perfect timing for my Dad's card....


The card base is 8 by 8"
I used Real Dial Size at 1.5" for my cuts from Artbooking.

Very little inking from me....shock! horror! lol!


Happy Birthday Dad!

Do check out all the fabulous inspiration from my team mates and I hope you come and join in the fun.

I hope to catch up with you this week.
Thanks for looking.

BBTB2 - Purse



Hi, how are you doing?
Long time no see!

Lots to catch up on...and we will,  but for today it's all about BBTB2.
Diana has challenged us to use a cricut cut purse.


I haven't used my cricut for 3 months (gasp!! lol) and it took a while to find my mojo.
So a very simple one from me this time. The purse is cut at  5" from Artiste and the buckle at 3.5".
It needed something extra, so I added a swipe of white acrylic paint to distress slightly. Et voila!

Check out all the creativity from my DT sisters (great to be playing alongside you Ladies again btw)
and hope you link up and join us.

See you soon and thanks for dropping by.

Golfing Good Luck!

Happy Monday!
Hope you had a good weekend.
Mine was slightly strange as the house is so very quiet!
The boys flew to Indonesia on saturday ready for the World Champs today.
Good Luck Ossian!

Laura has asked us to alter a cricut cut for this week's BBTB2. challenge.

It was the perfect opportunity to make a Good Luck card for Ossian.


I nearly always alter my cricut cuts ...inking, embossing, doodling or glossy accents.
(And that's just this card..lol!) Personally I think it brings the cuts to life.

A side view to show the dimension and  inside.

I chose yellow to represent sand and blue the water.

I curled the flag for movement.


The sentiment is from My Guy by Paper Smooches.
Wild Card 2 for the card at 5" and phrase at 2".
Create a Critter2 at 4" for the flag and green.

I have made a card for Oss to open each day whilst he is away with some 'Mum' encouragement in!
Just didn't have time to take photos . If the mini cards make it home I will share.

I hope you check out my fabulous DT sisters and find time to play along with us over at BBTB2.

Thanks for visiting.

Shaker Baby!

Hi Everyone, how are you on this sunny Monday morning?
It's time for a new challenge over at BBTB2 and our talented Susan has asked us to use a cricut cut car for our project.

Shaker cards seem to be everywhere at the moment. It's amazing how things come back around again. I used to make these years ago and they are so easy and effective.


I used Nate's Abcs for the card and Art Philosophy at 5" for the card and frame.


With the age of diecutting both electric and manual it makes shaker cards a doddle!

There's lots of motoring fun from my DT sisters so do check them out and come and join in the fun.

Thanks for looking.
