Today I saw some brilliant Nestie's cards on various friends blogs so I felt inspired to have a bash myself. The only problem is now I want the scalloped Nestie circles to expand my range!!!! They will definatley have to wait til next month!!!!

Halloween Kitty for cute card Thursday challenge

I have made a few of these for Zack to give to his little pals for Halloween, healthier than sweets lol!!!!! I used PB stamp "jack o lantern" & CB skulls embossing folder. I used chalks for a dusky effect. I think it looks unfinished so will put a greeting on the bottom, need to have a think!!!!

Snow Family Fun!!!!

Really enjoyed using my new stamp from Spiral whisper, and have used Cuddly Buddly circle christmas greetings (Loving theese!). Snowflake CB embossing folder provides the backing. I embellished with ribbon & glitter glue(much more sparkly in real life!). This image is close to my heart as it reminds me of my little family!!! Happy crafting x

Penny Black Saturday Challenge card

This is the first time I have entered the PB challenge so I hope it is OK. "Thanks a bunch" theme this week. I used vellum on my card as inspired by my blogging pal Nessy, makes a change as I rarely use it! I also enjoyed using my new circle nestabilities & found that the cuddly buddly circle stamps fit in the smaller circle perfectly!!!! This means no more poorly cut circle greetings, hooray!!!!!!

Tilda & friends ATC challenge & uncle's B'day card

I enjoyed doing the ATC as Ive not done one for ages. Backing paper free from a magazine, Tilda coloured with watercolours & gel pens. Button added to embellish her pinafore. Birthday card proved a bit more challenging, but the inspiration finally struck!!!! PB frog coloured with watercolours, mounted on to CB embossed card, glittery 80 added to the top. Hope you all have a good week. I managed to clean & tidy the craft shed yesterday so looking forward to getting in their & making some more cards this week, time permitting..........
