Hi everyone!!!!

I had some fun playing with the sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog!!!!
Here's the sketch:

and the first card I made using the sketch:

The snowman and snowflake stamps are part of a set of free stamps I got with a magazine very long ago.
I've embossed the snowflakes with clear EP and did the sponging with Stormy Sky DI.
Flourish and Notepad Edge dies from MFT.
Sentiment stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Music paper form my stash.

While I was busy with my Christmas card I got the idea to make a shaker card, so I made this:

It's a piece of cork and micro beads on the inside of the shaker.
Flower and leaves dies from MFT.
EFs from Cuttlebug.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

Can you believe this is my very first shaker card!!!  Am I late at the party or what????

Thank you so much for visiting and have a great weekend!!!!

DT call card

Hi everyone!!!!

Ka, from Stamping Smiles Designs is having a DT call for a new Tic-Tac-Toe challenge she is going to start next year.  I had such a lot of fun creating a card to be considered for a DT spot!!!!


I choose the diagonal row,   'Twine - Embossing - Thank You Card',    to work with.
This is the card I created:

I've heat embossed the leaves and flower with clear EP.  Flower coloured with DI.
Swiss dot EF from Cuttlebug.
Leaves stamp from PTI.
Flower stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Sentiment stamp and small circle stamp from Altenew.
Notepad edge die from MFT.

Not much time left to link my card!!!!

Thank you so much for popping in - always a pleasure to have you visiting!!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

Hi everyone!!!

I've got two cards to share this morning!!!!  Both cards were inspired by the current sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.
This is the sketch:

and the first card I made:

I've sponged the tags with DIs and heat embossed the swirl and butterfly with clear EP.  The tags are price tags that I've bought at a local stationary shop.
Swirl stamp from PTI.
Butterfly stamp from Crafty Individuals.
Small circle stamp from Altenew.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.
The one tag looks as if it's not neatly lined up with the swirl on the card front, but that's because of the angle at which I photographed the card and the fact that I've slightly curled up the bottom corners of the tags.

On the second card I have taken it a bit too far to link at the challenge - don't think this will go through as a  CAS card!!!!
This is what my card looks like:

Flowers hand punched.
Chevrons cut with Tim Holtz Chevron die.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

OK, I'll leave you with that for now!!!  Thanks so much for spending some time with me!!!

Have a great day!!!
