Afternoon all
So Once again I find myself apologising for the lack of bloggery!  BUT I come bearing an olive branch in the form of a quite special giveaway!
So as you may know, I am launching a brand new collection on Friday on Create and Craft as a Pick of the Week – the Makey Bakey Mice, who are the cutest, most adorable set of little meeces you will ever see, and they all love to make and bake just like me, so they’re very close to my heart.  I always want to break out into Billy Rae Cyrus … But don’t tell the mice , the Makey Bakey Mice, I just don’t think they’d understand, and if you tell the mice the Makey Bakey Mice they may just come and pinch your stash (OK the ending may not rhyme so well, but it makes me giggle!)
The design Team have been crafting up a storm, so I have picked a few of my favourite samples to share with you here to give you a little sneak peek of what is coming up and what you are going to be able to do with them.
I’ve included them all in a slideshow below :)

Anything But A Card Challenge At Lexis Creations

Morning all hope you are all well, I am so sorry I haven't been around much this week, Jodie was rushed into hospital on Wed at only 30 weeks pregnant, with heavy bleeding and contractions, she is home now but it's possible it can happen again, so each day is a bonus for baby to get stronger and bigger, he or she is 2lb 15 at the moments, so we are keeping our fingers crossed .

Today is the start of a new Challenge at Lexis Creations, we are sponsored this week by Fairy Dust Crafts the winner can choose 5 digis of their choice.

The theme for this challenge is anything but a card, so I decided to do a door hanger and I have used my New Snowman and Snowdog collection, it had to be quick as I didn't have much time with everything that's happened, but I managed it.
I used one of the card blanks to cover the Door Hanger and I had some glitterations  silver circles to go around the whole, A topper from the kit, bow from my Die'sire dies and some snowflake blue ribbon, I also had some Marianne designs winter gems so I added a couple of snowflakes.

The Challenge I would like to enter my Door Hanger into are:-

Make It Monday - Anything Goes.
Pattie's Creations Design Challenge - Anything Goes ( Must always use an image).
Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Anything Goes, Must use Ribbon.
