Fezziwigs Top 3 and another card...

Good Morning Everyone,

Hope you are all doing ok. Its been lovely weather here and its set to remain so the rest of the week. so here I am sharing a Christmas card!!! Hee hee!!! 
Its week 2 of the challenge over at Fezziwigs Festive Frolics and I asked to see cards with Cats and Dogs.
Last week I shared a kitty card, this time its the dog whos made an appearance.

The Sentiment stamp for this card disintegrated when I took it off the stamping platform. Its never been used and Im guessing its a fair few years old. Cant remember how long ago I got it but know it was one time Lindsay was on QVC back in the days that they did crafting there.

Have a lovely Wednesday,

Not all Heros wear capes...

Hi Folks,

Well its the Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK and its started off very windy here in Scotland. We are still in lockdown so its not your usual bank holiday for us Scots. I do hope that folk down south still adhere to the social distancing as I have seen on the TV some beaches packed with folk.

My card today is for Jakes Lynne. She is an Immunisation Nurse and is really busy just now with pre school injection time. I just thought I would send her thanks for keeping on going during the pandemic.

Have a lovely weekend,

Love and Sparkles,

Jakes Birthday...

 Hi Folks,

I hope you're all doing ok in the challenging times we are living in. I have been quite busy in the garden over the last few days. Although today I have been finishing off some wee bits of painting in the crafty room. I had run out of white gloss paint so I now have some more and got the door painted. 
 My eldest son has his birthday on Friday. Im not sure when we will see him as we are still not allowed to meet folks from out with our household. Think from the end of next week we can see folk from other houses from a 2m distance so may get his gifts to him then.

Fezziwigs Midway Reminder..

Morning All,

I hope you are all doing ok. We are still very much in lockdown here in Scotland and quite rightly too.  I think erring on the side of caution is the right move to make at this worrying time.

Today's card is my midway one for the challenge over at Fezziwigs Festive Frolics. My theme is Anything Festive Goes. 
Card Recipe
A6 Card
Sizzix Tree Stamps and Dies
Happy Christmas and Landscape Die from Ebay.
Frantage Embossing Powder.

Heres a handy tip for you all. Ive moved my craft room upstairs and decided to plug the heat tool in directly under my smoke alarm!!! Did you know that heat sets it off in a few seconds!! I told Tom I was just testing it. Oops!!!! Wont do that again in a hurry!! Made me jump!!! And have hopefully made you all have a wee laugh too xx

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

Butterfly Challenge X Card Creation.

 Evening All,

I hope you're having a nice weekend, its freezing cold here and we have just had a hail storm!!! 
 Im here with my card for the Butterfly Challenge this fortnight. I love to play along with ValeryAnnes different shapes of card and this one was again a new idea for me. 
 Pop over and join the fun. I have used my wink of stella pen for some added sparkle on the butterfly, it didn't come up brilliantly on the photo.(Top one.) 
Papers from Stash
Butterfly Stamp from Bundle on Ebay
Coloured with Nuvo Alcohol Pens and Wink Of Stella Pen.

Im off now to wait till 7 to watch The Prime Ministers talk on the Corona Virus Situation. It isnt really applicable to us here in Scotland as our First Minister has rightly said we will continue to be in lockdown as we are running slightly later with illness here in Scotland as it took longer to make its way up to us. Think we will get to go outside to exercise more that once a day. Our slogan will still be Stay Home, Save Lives. Wherever you are in the world though I think we are now in the most worrying time with the nasty wee virus as we start to reduce restrictions, this too shall pass though, Keep Smiling and Crafting!!! 

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

Challenges I would like to enter are-
The Butterfly Challenge - X for X Fold, Xtra Colours and Butterfly. (Just for Fun)

CRAFT Birthday Bloghop...

Good Morning,

Im here with a Guest Designer hat on for the month of May as I was Star of the Month over at the CRAFT Challenge in February.  This is their Birthday week so without further ado here is some info about the challenge. 

This year Craft  Challenge is 11 years old and still going strong.

The team is a group of dedicated, talented, lovely people lead by the only team member who has been present from the start, Jo.

If you feel at any time that you would like to join our fabulous team, then just have a look on our DT Call page, which will inform you of any openings on the team. Or, simply get in touch with us and let us know.

And now it's time for our birthday celebrations. This week our challenge is


(what else could it be?)

Anything that fits in with this subject, qualifies for entering into this challenge.

There is a maximum of 1 entry per person for this challenge and as always it needs to be new work (so created and posted after this challenge has started). Although we love to see your work, it would put those contestants that put more than 1 entry in at an unfair advantage. The same limit exists for the prizes to be won on the blogs of our DT members.

Please also make sure to turn word verification off as this makes leaving a comment on your lovely creations much easier. We do not leave a comment if you have word verification switched on.

The rules this year are very simple:
     1.     Make a project for this challenge and add it to the Craft  Challenge Blog  and your entry will be put in the random draw for the prize from Love To Scrap 2 .
   2.     Visit the blogs of our DT and enter into their Linky or their comments if no Linky is in place to be put in the random draw for the prize on their blog.
    3.     The Top 3 will be chosen as every week and each of the Top 3 will win a prize this week too.

     You should have come here from

and as you can see your next stop is
 Jeni’s Blog  .

The prize on this blog is £10 Voucher

From Crafty Ribbons

 I have used seam binding from Crafty Ribbons on my project but they have so many other ribbons and goodies instore for you to buy!!! 

I hope you have fun with the bloghop.
