It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 43 - Favourite Colour Combination

Hello everybody             
Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.  This week’s challenge is ‘Favourite Colour Combinations’.
This is such a hard challenge for me because I like so many colour combinations…. In fact I’m  abit of a colour freak….the brighter the better for me. 
After a long hard decision I decided on pink and brown and using the lovely coloured digis and papers and sentiments from the Winston Collection I’ve carried on from last week and this time have made a 70th birthday card for a sewing mad lady!!
Etty is absolutely divine isn’t she?  I’ve printed her out several times and decoupaged her again (my favourite crafting method of all time) and blinged her up with a bit of glitter and used the 70 number and the button embellies from the collection which is available as a CD and download too!!

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 40 - Feeling Cold Ice & Snow

Hello everybody             
Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.  This week’s challenge is ‘Feeling Cold Ice & Snow’.
But before I get onto my make for this week’s DT inspiration -------- get out the cake and bunting as I’ve been on the team with Digi Choosday for a whole year !!!!  Where has that year gone???  I’m still as happy as the first day of joining the team and I hope you will see that my makes have got better and better over the weeks and I’ve really thought out of the box some weeks and extended my crafting repertoire.  Here’s to another year with Digi Choosday.
So onto this week’s make.
A few weeks ago I visited Hobbycraft and bought some little MDF/wooden reindeers (amongst other things) and thought they’d be great for this week’s theme of feeling cold especially if I covered them with some blue snowflake paper.  You see, to me, the colour that conjures up cold is blue and so a quick look through some of the fab papers on the Festive Hollyb…

Visit to Skipton to Yarndale 2015

Hello everybody 
Well as you may or may not already know I'm hooked on all things yarny - crochet, knitting, yarn dyeing and spinning and so with our holidays being booked earlier this year it gave me a chance to visit Yarndale in Skipton last Saturday.  
Me and mum were up at the crack of dawn so that we could take our time getting there.  What a fab journey on the A59 to Skipton.  Straight route with no fuss or trauma en route like I normally have on a journey to somewhere I've not been before.
We landed in Skipton well before the venue opened.  Having never been before we didn't really know what to expect and boy we weren't disappointed.  What a great venue - the cattle auction centre surrounded by hills and fields and beautiful scenery. 
After a quick cuppa from the outside catering van we joined the queue for prepaid tickets and were soon inside and couldn't wait to see all the stalls (around 180 in all) and all the woolly goodness.
