Cuddly bear

I have been experimenting further with my Cricut today, and have managed to use the end caps button succesfully, cutting out a worded tag. The stamped image is a beautiful design by Linda Luckin. Once again I am using all my old stash.

Feeling blue

This card I have made is for a friend's birthday. I've always coloured in this image as a red racing car, so thought I would use blue for a change, and I think I prefer it.

One for Mum

It's my Mum's Birthday on Thursday and this is the card I have made for her. She is shoe mad, so this rubber stamp was very appropriate. Stamped with black stazon and watercoloured. I have used ribbon and a curly thing-me-bob to embellish and the lettering is cut with my Cricut.

Girly cards

I've made 2 cute and simple girly cards with my Magnolia stamps. I have stamped the image and the used watercolour pencils for the colouring. Once again I have been using up my scraps of paper for the backgrounds and finally finishing them off with a message from Craftwork CArds.

House Mouse and Happy Hoppers

These stamps are some of my favourites and my collection is slowly growing. Here are some more cards I have made for throughout the year. I am determined to make hundreds of cards just to use some stash so I can buy more.

All ages

I've made 3 cards for friends and family who have 'big' birthdays approaching. I've cut the numbers using my trusty Cricut. My Hubby has told me that I'm not allowed to buy anything else (apart from glue and blank cards) until I have used up some of my many papers that I have, so I've made a start.

Chalking for a change

For a change I stamped this image using a clear embossing pad and then chalked with blue and green. I added a matching background paper, some eyelets and ribbon and finished with a peel off message.

House Mouse

Using one of my favourite House Mouse stamped images (actually I love them all). I've made a card by stamping and water colouring the image, and adding a rub on message.

Cards for little girls

I'm still managing to produce cards and I'm loving it. Here are some cards that I have made today.

Cards for men

I struggle to make cards for men usually, but found the 'take it easy' stamp when I was tidying which was free with Craft Stamper magazine, and an old fashioned bike stamp.

30th card

A simple 30th card, using my Cricut to cut the numbers.

Christmas Scrapbooking

At last I've got my mojo back. I thought it would never happen, but I've been busy this morning completing 3 layouts for the January scrapbook challenge set by Lesley over at Craftswap Forum. They are 3 very different layouts from different years and are all of my daughter. The colours are not your traditional red and green Christmas colours, but rather a more modern twist.

You will also see that I had a helper in one of the photo's.
