Girls, Girls, Girls!

I'm back!  I've gone back to Chrome and things seem to be working, Jason used Safari and that was useless for pictures, so hopefully now I will be able to blog, browse and maybe even do some commenting!

This week's theme at Cute Card Thursday is an easy peasy one - Girls, girls, girls!  Our prize is from Whiff of Joy and you can see the rest of the DT's creations on the CCT blog - I'll go and load mine once I finish here.

I had this cutie already stamped up, she is called Dawn Sharing a Biscuit from Nellie's Choice stamps and I've coloured here with my Copic pens then added touches of Stardust Stickles for the snow.

And here's the card - another of my small squares created with SU! card then a scrap piece of Nitwits paper with a white mat.  I've given the image a mat as well and added the embossed faux stitches around the edge.  I actually had the image coloured up in my Christmas box already, left over from before last Christmas and I had planned to keep things quite plain and simple, my version of CAS!  But, I just had to have a little embellishment especially as I wanted to use the sparkly red berries I recently won.  I die cut the pine cone from Coredinations and sanded it back then added the pine leaves, topping things off (to hide the glue mess) with the text on a die cut banner.  All Marianne Design dies of course, here't the list:

faux stitches with LR0161
pine cone from LR0286
pine leaves from LR0227
banner from COL1324 with text from COL1325

Not sure if there are any challenges I can link up to as I've been without the pc for the last week and haven't caught up yet - I might find some and add in a bit .. ..

I have to take Mum to Trelisk Hospital tomorrow so will schedule a card for the morning, fingers crossed it works.  Then I have no idea what is happening at the weekend as DH has a broken van, again!  We had planned to visit the Farmers's Market at Bodmin Herbs on Saturday morning then go for a carvery lunch at the Weighbridge garden centre as I have a voucher - plus no doubt there would be a plant or two to catch my eye!  And hopefully now that Jason is back home we can do more to finish off the jobs around the house and garden .. .. the gravel area by the shed is now finished, Jay just wants to put a fence across to give some privacy and divide things up a little.  He's dug out a semi circle of lawn around the drain cover ready to lay a brick edge and then infill with the left over gravel to give an area for the BBQ or seating - just need to get stuff from the builders yard to actually do the work (plus a little more gentle nagging from me!) So weather permitting I will be in the garden, but if I do get a moment to myself I'll try crafting a little and catching up with you all.  Whatever you have planned, I hope the sun shines and you enjoy!


  1. Glad you're back Annie. Who would have thought that using a different browser would make such a difference. Anyhow, lovely card and as usual love the dies xx

  2. Lovely to see your gorgeous card Annie.
    Everything went well for me after I changed over to Chrome.
    Hope all goes well tomorrow.
    Hugs xx

  3. Chrome all the way - have been using for years and never any problems. Love your card, the image is so sweet and I love the pine cone embellishment. Hugs, Claire x
