Thank you very much


is this weeks card challenge at Scrapbook Sisters  blog.

There are not enough hours in the day at the moment so I decided on a very simple & quick card for this week.

july2011 011Stamped the little mouse on some white card and coloured him with copics. Cut the image with one of the fancy square nestabilities. Loving nestabities at the moment.

july2011 012The tag was cut using Tim Holtz tiny tags die. I used Vintage photo ink pad to ink the left side of the decorative mat and the tag.

The string looped around the tag and poked through the card to finish off.

july2011 015If you haven’t entered a card yet do have a go. Its great to see all of the different cards you gals come up with.

Thanks for stopping by. ‘Til next time.

A bit late ……….

Evening all. A bit late in posting this but as they say ‘better late than never’.

This is the latest card challenge on the Scrapbook Sisters Blog ‘For the Teacher’.

For this one I decided to do an easel card with Blackboards in the form of flowers/ lollipops.

july2011 001 The scalloped & plain circles were cut using nestabilities and I used markers that can write on black card. Sorry can’t remember the make of them.

I drew the books and cut them out and 3D them onto the base blackboard.

The pencils are made from rolled striped paper with a coloured paper cone.

I’m busy preparing for my next class at Scrapbook Sisters in a couple of weeks  with my first Christmas Digi stamp for this year. It might seem early but if any of you are like me I tend to leave my cards to the last minute and then its panic stations because I have so many to do and not enough time. So my aim this year is to be more organized and the last leg before Christmas can be a little more relaxed. Well that’s the idea anyway- haha!! Watch this space to see whether it happens.

Thanks for stopping by.
