Mo Manning's Challenge February 2017

Hi, and welcome to my little cupboard. It's been a busy January for me, trying to escape the grey days of winter I've been cleaning and clearing, - always surprising how much you gather over time! Hey ho keeps me out of mischief :-) 

Anyhoos, here's is my card for Mo's new DP2 Challenge which starts today with a theme of Anything Goes with a Mo image.



Using some of Mo's new images called Mags, Jerry and Dodi, coloured with my Copics and a few dies and sequins. So made me giggle with their cheeky faces! Reminded me of that saying 'Dance like no one is watching'.

So don't forget to take a look at Mo's blog, you could be the lucky one to win a prize this month.

OK, so back to the cleaning I suppose, have fun whatever you do too  x

Mo Manning's Challenge January 2017

Hi and happy new year! Well Christmas came and went in a flash as usual didn't it? I had a lovely time with family over the period, I hope you enjoyed yourself whatever you did.

Mo's monthly DP2 Challenge starts today, we had lots of fabulous entries last month which you can see if you pop over to the blog and we have lots of lovely inspiration from the Dream Team for this month. So why not grab a cuppa, take a look and have a go to win a voucher to spend in Mo's Digital Store.

The theme as always is anything goes and I have used Cheek to Cheek to make my husband an anniversary card. It fitted right in with the musical dies I found and as he is a musician it all seemed very appropriate.


I used an embossing folder to create the textured background , some heart and musical dies and of course my Copics to colour the image in. If you'd like more info please leave me a comment and ask away.

Thanks for looking, I'm off to prepare for my January workshop later this month - time flies and I'll be panicing before you know it if I haven't prepped. We always have great fun, chatting, laughing oh and yes crafting ! I hope you do something to make you laugh and smile this month x

Mo's Blog Hop December 2016 'Snow'

Hi everyone!!

Its that exciting time of the month again for a Mo's Dream Team blog hop and this time its a 'Snow' theme picked by me !


For this card I did some white embossed sbowflakes and ink bending for the background, added a die cut tree line and coloured up the lovely Giggling Snowman from Mo's Digital Shop. A quick and easy card as I've still got a few to do !!

Mo Manning's Challenge - December 2016

Well here we are in December and on the countdown to Christmas! 

With so much to do I made a quick and simple card for this month's sample using A Little Birdie Told Me from Mo's Digital Shop.


Simple, but I thought reflective of the season and sometimes sad times we live in, truly wishing for peace on earth.

More samples are on my teamies blogs, take a look in the sidebar to see them all and pop over to Mo's DP2 Challenge to have a go and maybe win a prize to spend in her store! There were some fabulous entries last month and the theme stays as 'Anything Goes' with a Mo image. So much inspiration and don't forget to check out my page Ellie's Cupboard on Facebook and the galleries on Pinterest.

Craft Fun with Hobbyart



Huge thank you to Jenny Mayes of Hobbyart for a lovely day crafting with her at the All Counties Challenge retreat this weekend in Godalming..

These are the projects we did, love them all but my favourite has to be the little printers tray with four scenes on. Great tips on using the Kuretake pens to colour and blend with. So lucky that because Jenny was local to the area we were a small group and Jenny was able to give individual attention to each of us - priceless!

Fabulous weekend for everyone there who had the choice of working with some other wonderful crafters including John Bloodworth, Leonie Punjol, Sarah Millsop from Beaders Direct, Paula Pascal from Tonic and Dean Wilson who gave their time to support John's chosen charity Mind. Met some lovely people all there to have fun and learn - if you get a chance to go to one of John's events then I would highly recommend it !
