 I told you I'd another ScanNCut card to share when I posted this one yesterday!

It doesn't show too well in the photos but there's lots of glitter  on this one, all around the number edges and on the flower centres.

The card was made suiting my friends likes, red and glittery, the polka dots were a little joke between as I love dotty papers and when we used to craft together, she would save me any off cuts.( I've been known to rifle through bins to retrieve others remnants lol!)

It's too late now as the birthday was a few weeks ago but after seeing the photos I wish I'd also inked the edges of the numbers!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
PTT174, Anything goes,
TTCRD, Anything goes.

From The Prefect!

My son left school last week, an emotional day, well for me anyway, he's only got to go in for his A level exams now and they start next week. Doesn't seem five minutes ago that I held his hand and took him for his very first day at school!

So no guesses for which form my son is prefect for lol! He shared his duties with a girl prefect so as is the norm for this time of year, the Woodware stamps came out again! I love to colour these up to match the school uniform, just wish they wore the compulsory blazer of RMGS.

Well, if you're a regular visitor of my blog you'll know that the card blank was created on my Brother Scan N Cut, don't think I will ever tire of making this kind of card,
 so be prepared to see more, 
I've already got a post lined up with another, sorry!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
ARF9, Anything goes,
LRS105, Add doodling,
CFTH20, Anything goes,
MFC, When I Grow Up,
TSM, Teacher,
OSAAT, Anything goes.

A Little Thank Ewe!

I'm not kidding either! 
The flower is from an ancient Quickutz set, it's a set that you can assemble to make a layered wedding cake with flowers for the top or a slice of cake. It was a set that I thought that I couldn't do without, however, I was so wrong! I think that this is only the second time it has ever been through my Cuttlebug! 
Eunice looks so cute here don't you think!
 I just added the "Thank" before printing it out, and flicked some grass using a gel pen.

I'm using this card for the following challenge:-
LIM173, CAS, Die cut.

Just check out Eunice's veil! I simply did rough cross hatch colouring using my clear Gelly roll stardust pen. I also cheated a bit using the ScanNcut to cut out my image, I inly needed to use a blade to cut the areas that were landlocked like between the heads ans the legs, not bad eh? I can tell you it certainly makes an easy job of it!

I am so excited with this release, it just lends itself to some fun sentiments and I've heard that there is an image suitable for almost every occasion!
Go on have a go:- especially for Ewe, Thank ewe, Wishing ewe a speedy recovery........

Just Another Name

Just another name card using the ScanNcut. this one with some hand cut bunting.

Not much else I can share with you at the moment I'm afraid. I've been sewing instead of creating cards, making some Caterpillars for work, I wish I'd remembered to photograph them before I'd given them to the children to play with. They were really cute and the perfect thing to help them develop the skill involved with buttoning their own clothes. I'm hoping that my crafting buddy Karen may have taken some photos of them the other evening otherwise I'm going to have to photograph the played with version lol! that'll teach me! 

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Crafting at the weekend, Anything goes,
Totally Gorjuss 235, Don't be square,
PPC176, 2 or more dp
TTPurple Haze, Anything but square.

Lavinia's Birthday Girls.

Morning, with the new start date of the second day of the month, it's time for a new theme at 
Lavinia Stamps.
The theme this month is

My first card was made simply by using the scraps on my desk, inking them and stamping, the remains of a die cut that just begged to have the gorgeous Lavendar stamped onto it.

I had some fun making this card,stamping the gorgeous 
Zen Butterfly with a clear versamark randomly over a piece of A4 card and using clear embossing powder.

I then used a selection of ink pads and sponges to gradually build up a lush colourful background. 

I've got a board on pintrest where I pin colour mixes and these colours were inspired by one of them.

I then just stamped into the spaces using a bright pink ink pad and the tiny stars 1 stamp. I just couldn't bring myself to throw away the colourful offcuts after making this card so instead, I cut them into 2.5 cm squares and glued them around the edges of a 10 cm square of card, added inky stitching and popped it onto foam pads after removing the centre to form a patchwork effect frame. I've used this technique in the past, it makes me happy lol!
 The butterfly was stamped and fussy cut before I sponged its wings to match the frame.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
STB Birthday,
SOC, Wings.
