To celebrate my 9th birthday on Sunday 8th March I asked my Mum if I could have some blog candy. I have the above cute stamp "Cheer Anya" to send to one lucky person. The candy will also include a selection of Anya images and red, white and blue ribbons.

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post. It would be great if you could tell your friends about my candy. On Sunday 8th March at 16:00 GMT I will pick the winners name out of the hat.

This candy is open everyone and if you don't have a blog please email me at

Good Luck!

Club Anya Kids contest

I made this card using the Rock the Farm Anya to take part in the Club Anya Kids contest. The cute little chick is from the McSplendid Farm Set. I coloured the images with my Mum's copics. The paper is from Me and My Big idea's Sunshine pack which I chose when on holiday in Florida last year at Michaels.

Keep your fingers crossed for me as I would love to win an Anya or Ian stamp of my own.

The gorgeous Smirk products were sent to me from my friend Hannah and her Mum Debbie. I loved them so much that my Mum also got me some more of the stamps from The Range.

Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge - Shady Lady

I made this ATC to take part in this weeks Tilda and friends ATC Challenge - Shady Lady. They are asking us to use shades of one main colour, in addition to hair and skin tones or natural backgrounds. I have used High Hopes "Miss Zoe" which if you didn't know already was named after me ;-) Here I am with my cat Gemma wearing my favourite colours. Apart from her hair and Gemma I used my Mum's copics for the colouring.

This is my second post today so be sure to check out my Crafty Monkey's challenge card below.



Crafty Monkey's Challenge 16 - Sketch by Didi

Thank you to everyone for joining in our last challenge at Crafty Monkey's and I loved seeing your love and friendship creations.

This weeks challenge is to follow a sketch by our fabulous guest designer Didi. Isn't her sketch fun and Hannah and I loved working with it. If you haven't checked out Didi's blog before pop on over as she is very talented.

Our prize this week was kindly donated by Nikki from Dewdrop Craftz. The winner of this weeks challenge has the choice of one of the below stamps as their prize.

Nikki asked Hannah and I to be Guest Designers this month for Dewdrop Craftz and the stamp used on my card can be purchased in her store. Thanks again Nikki, I was so happy that you asked me.

The circles and stars on my card were cut on my Mum's Cricut Expression. The paper used on my stars is DCWV Grade School. I coloured my image with my Whisper pens. My sentiment was printed from word.

Hope you join in our challenge and if you know someone who is under 16 who likes crafting please let them know.

Before I go I just wanted to show you this card that I helped my 3 year old Sister Danni make for our Dad's birthday yesterday. The cool dragon Danni picked is High Hopes Ace. When Mum and I make cards Danni also likes to colour images.

Penny Black Challenge - Romance

I made this card to join in the new Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This week their theme is Romance. I just love this sweet stamp. I made this card for a special friend. I had fun using my Mum's nestabilities and her punches. The cute Best of Friends stamp is a 99p stamp by Smirk. My Mum did help me with the design and piecing my card together. The gorgeous papers I pinched from Mum's stash and were kindly sent to her from her friend Karin.

Now I will show you some gorgeous cards and gifts I received over the last couple of days.
This beautiful card is from Debbie. Hannah and Debbie sent me loads of cute Smirk products earlier in the week which I just love. You can see some of the Smirk used on my Crafty Monkey's card on my earlier post.
I received this card from Caz with some sweet Panda images. Thank you so much Caz for your gorgeous card and Mum and I can't wait to see you again in April at Ally Pally.

We received a wonderful Valentines package from Karin, Ruby and Britt. This package contained so many wonderful goodies and gorgeous cards Karin had made for Danni and I. She also made my Mum a beautiful gift set containing lots of Valentine stash. Thank you so much and we loved the Smoeltjes!

I am going to start designing my party invitations today using some of the Smirk papers and stamps.

Have a fun Sunday.

Card for Dad

I made this card today for my Dad's birthday which is later in the month. If anyone knows who this stamp is by I would love to know as I received this cute image in a swap. I coloured with my whisper pens and found some car stickers. I also decorated the inside with stickers.

Danni and I had so much fun today and spent lots of time playing out in our garden and also the front of our house with some neighbours. There is also no school tomorrow so hopefully lots more snow fun!


Snow much fun!

I was so excited as it started to snow yesterday. My friends Mum rang this morning to say the school is closed. I am so happy that we could go out to play as normally when we have a little snow it has all melted by the time school has finished.

Here is our sweet cat Gemma.. I don't think she was having as much fun as us!

Here is my Sister Danni
I was being cheeky and threw this snowball at my Mum as she was going inside.. luckily for me it hit the conservatory door.

Hope you liked my photo's.
