Hi there folks - here's my card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge mid month reminder - oops!  Our theme this month is 'Let it Snow' so there's lots of images you could use for this one.

Here's my card with a touch of poetic licence 'cos I thought a brown chipmunk would stand out a tad too much - so here on Planet Susie he's an Arctic chipmunk!  Woo hoo!

We have two sponsors this month - Di's Digi Stamps and Fabrika Fantasy (where my little chippy came from).  They are offering great prizes - a $12 in store voucher from Di's Digis and digis from Fabrika.  Lovely to start off the New Year!


7" x 7" White card base - Anna Marie Designs
'Chipmunk' digi from Fabrika Fantasy
Paper - Docrafts 'Bellissima' Christmas
Embossing folder - Free with Papercraft Inspirations - very popular!!
Impression Obsession Dies - Snowflake die DIE024-X
Impression Obsession Dies - Snowflakes die DIE100-F
Memory Box Dies - Frostyville Wreath die
Memory Box Dies - Bianca Snowflake die
Cheery Lynn Dies - Snowflakes die C146
Graph'it and Flexmarkers
Sentiment printed and then foiled on my Minc machine.

I know you will be very busy this time of the year but if you can find the time to make a creation we'd love to see it.  Check out what my teamies have made over on the Crafty Calendar challenge site.

Just off to administer to Biscuit's wound - like Blossom he had a lump on his tum and had it removed yesterday - not sure what it is but it was definitely pricey!  Bless him though he's a lovely boy even if he is dribbling everywhere - they've put a drain in his tum eeeew - too much information peeps???

Take care all of you - especially out there in this wet weather.

Lots of love and hugs

Sunday 13 December 2015


Hi everyone out there - is it me or does it feel as if Christmas is nearly here??  The same thing is happening again - I've suddenly been asked if I have any cards going spare.  So here I go again, I hate saying no so that means I need to make a few more - and as you know I just can't do quick cards - well only very rarely!  I guess having a mumble helps - not!  Anyway this fortnight the OSAAT theme is Anything Goes with the colour Red - so I chose to make this little milk carton gift box using a beautiful little digi from Beary Dust at the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.

This is our last challenge until January and we have the following prize for you to win


Digi - 'Hot Chocolate' by Beary Dust from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet
Stardust card - stash
Milk carton gift box template - internet tutorial
Ancient Peel-off Stickers - Create and Craft
Spellbinders Dies - Long Classic Rectangles Large die
Britannia Dies - Poinsettia die
Signature Dies - Joanna Sheen's 'Holly Berries'
Copic markers
'Stardust' glitter glue
Ribbon and Tassel - stash - again very ancient!
Very yummy mini Marshmallows (I didn't scoff many 'cos they were soooo sweet)

I'm really pleased with this little gift box and it was so easy to make - which is a huge bonus!  Hope you can find time to enter our last challenge of 2015, you have until round about January 8 2016 to enter.

Take care all of you and in case I don't post until after Christmas (hope not, but you never know!) enjoy yourselves and have a peaceful and relaxing time.

Hugs to you all.

Love Sue xxx
