Addicted to CAS challenge #27 Code Word Pet

Hello lovely ladies.

Time for a new code word at ATCAS and a big thank you from me to all who joined in our Anniversary celebrations. Check back on Monday to see who are my winners,  we had some fabulous entries and you really have made it tough for me.

Onto the challenge at hand and this time our lovely and talented Vicki has chosen a fantastic theme for the next fortnight

ATCAS - code word pet

When I first saw this I was so excited as I have three doglets Bailey and  Rosy whom I named my blog after and the newest entry Molly who I’ve had for about a month now . I then realized that I don’t own a single animal or pet related stamp ! Not to fear My Cameo once again to the rescue. I can’t say I’m totally overjoyed with the results but have been having some health related issues again which make my right hand and shoulder very painful so was put on bed rest ( well that’s my excuse anyway )



Sorry about the poor quality of the photo’s but the weather has been so miserable this week this was the best I could do.

Here’s a  photo of the little monsters looking all cute and cozy


We are once again sponsored most  generously by Digi Darla Designs who is offering five images to the winner

Pop on over to ATCAS to see what the rest of the talented and lovely DT ladies have come up with to inspire you all . I have to say I’m so lucky to be part of this very talented team.

Right back off to bed doctors orders !

Take care


Get Creative October Challenge winners

During the course of October Get Creative celebrated its birthday and in honor of that we once again had a marathon card challenge with each member of the design team setting their own theme and offering a prize. We had an incredible response once again with 297 entries !!!!! Each DT member had the huge task of picking just one winner and boy was that hard, so many amazing entries and so difficult to pin it down to just one card.

I chose hearts for my theme  as I adore them but was running out of inspiration . So a big thank you to all of the lovely ladies that took part and helped me out !

So without further ado my winner is


Marie Card

I loved this clever card and the beautiful vellum heart with the sequins inside it really caught my eye. Look forward to receiving your address Mandy so I can send off your gift.

As it was sooooooo difficult to choose I would like to share some other cards with you and  here are my top three in no particular order

Joy’s Craft


What an amazing card ! Looks very complicated to me Joy ! fantastic layout and design



Loved the gorgeous texture and pretty colors on her fantastic card

Last but not least….

Amy Petrou


I loved her Tin Man he really captured my heart !

Thank you all so much for taking part and helping me out with my inspiration.

Get Creative will be taking a little break but will be back next year refreshed and revitalized and full of new and exciting challenges so from all of the Design Team at Get Creative thank you for making our last challenge this year a one to remember

Take care
