As I've been very short on time lately, I've used a Crafts U Print Decoupage Sheet to make a luxury tag... lots of layers on her skirt and on the fans. I've also used my new Crop-a-Dile Eyelet Setter which I bought with Birthday vouchers... love it so much and is easy to use!!

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's Strictly Come Dancing creations!! I hope you can join us for this fun challenge.

Sorry I've not been around for a while... mum has been very ill but is now improving slowly.  Also my new bed split in two! I'm gutted.... as only had it two months... in process of returning it for a refund... but they are SO slow at collecting it! Meanwhile, I've had to use my daughter's bed or recliner.. I'm in agony and just want to order a new bed... from different shop!! they are due to collect the broken bed today... fingers, toes, everything crossed that they take the blighter away!!!
Hopefully when I get my new bed sorted then I will be able to sleep better, and also do a wee bit of colouring or crafting to relax.
Will catch up with you all soon!
Love and hugs

MAWTT - Purple Haze

 Good morning... it's Team B's turn this fortnight over at

our lovely Jan has chosen a fab theme this week of

Purple Haze

As I'm sure you've already guessed... we want your creations to embrace the colour purple.

I did some brainstorming of the theme, and came up with Jimi Hendrix, Flower Power and good old Rock n Roll !! Have you been watching the Back in Time For the Weekend Programmes? Mum and I have been enjoying them... brings back some wonderful memories... but it's scary how they seem like only yesterday!!!

Paper: Bearly Mine 
Embellies from Stash

I digitally paper pieced the sweater with the design paper before printing out. Then coloured her face and hair with Chameleon Pens. I need more practice with these pens... found them hard at first, as is totally different technique with the blending barrel, but they are growing on me.

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's gorgeous Purple creations!!
You have until Wednesday 16th March 2016 at 6pm GMT to get your entries in.
Three entries per person are allowed and please no backlinking.

Seems ages since I've been able to craft and blog properly. Huge apologies for my lack of commenting... but my chest has been really bad for about a month and also my mum is not too well.  I'm hoping that things will improve. I've just bought some decoupage and digi card kits to make up as they are quick and easy to do when I'm not feeling good. But at least I get to do a bit of crafting and it helps me unwind :-))

 I'm looking forward to some warmer weather and Spring proper! it's SO cold here today!
Take Care
Love and hugs
