I think my Mum will approve of this thank you card not only does it have a cute house mouse but it also has thanks written in many languages. Maybe I should now get on with the rest of her mega long list!!
My friend asked me to make a card for a friend but she only told me his age and name the rest was up to me to make up! So here is what I ended up making! The backing papers and the "birthday rules" are all from Hot off the Press. The name is written with white rub on letters.
More cards for my Mum's little box. As you can see she was running short of thank you and sympathy cards!!! I used some house mouses as I know how much Non likes them. Added touches are a few diamonds, ribbons and sparkles with a sukura pen.

Another card off my Mum's mega list! Background paper is Hot off the Press to which I added a strip of vellum. I then cut a tag on my sizzix and added yet more vellum. The image was then stamped in black stazon and glittery gel pen and acrylic glittery spots were added. I finished the card off with a name made from K & co letters and a peel off border to cover where I had put the tape to stick the vellum down!

Well my Mum has sent me a MEGA list again so I thought I'd better make a start or she would start to complain! So here is the first one! The background paper is from a free pack with one of the magazines this month. Some fab papers in this pack and usually I store them away on the shelf for another day but not this time! Wonders will never cease. Knowing my Mum's love for my butterflies I thought maybe I should use some to keep her quiet! Hopeshe likes it!
This weeks challenge over on Linda's Alphabet Challenge blog is "E" Here is my effort! E for elephant and elegant edging. I couldn't come up with anything else.

Look at the fab candy I got in the post yesterday from Aimee - The little bottle is full of little dew drops - well as you can imagine I was keen to get playing but I have had little time!!! So eventually this afternoon I found a couple of minutes and made the little card.
Just look at those pretty dew drops on the scallops of the mini card.

I treated myself to some cute frog stamps and here is one of them! Well I think he is cute! I heat embossed him so he was easier to colour in. Some more of my pile of Hot off the Press paper and I also used the very last bit (I think it is anyway!)of the green spotty Funky Fairy paper I had printed off.

Linda's Alphabet Blog Challenge this week is "C". So I made a skinny - the cat is one of Linda's designs and the first of my C's. I stamped and embossed it in gold. Then I added a crown with added jewels - my second C. The corner embossed in gold is another of Linda's designs and my final C.
So 3 C's in all !!

Here is our gorgeous hamster Latte. Adda took this photo of her and it was so very cute I just had to make a page of her. The paper is Basic Grey and I cut the centre shape on my cricut.
This card is made with some of Linda Luckin's fab stamps (well actually these ones do belong to me but Linda designed them!)
Such fab stamps really don't need much doing to them but I have added a touch of sparkle to the images with a sukura gel pen.

Another green card made with a Funky Fairy download. I down loaded this bird paper yesterday for the challenge and printed it off so today I decided to use some of it! I outlined the bird with white gel pen.
This weeks My Time to Craft challenge is "Denim" So I went with denim type paper! I stamped the image twice once on white card then onto denim paper. I then cut out her bag, dress and shoes and added them to the coloured image. Blue embellishments were used to finish off the denim look.

My youngest son Philip always swaps easter cards and eggs with a friend at school. So here is the one we made this year. The die cut rabbit and flowers were from a packet of them I bought in Hobbycraft. We added lots and lots of sparkly things as you can see his friend is a girl !!
On The Funky Fairy Challenge website the theme is green. So I made a very green card. The backing paper is green downloaded from the funky fairy website. Then I printed the swirly pattern also from Funky Fairys onto acetate. I then stamped the quote onto the same patterned paper as the background. The butterfly was also stamped onto the same paper and stickles and a bindi were added. The acetate is then held on with some ribbon!
For this weeks alphabet challenge it was B it's taken me a while to post my design on my own blog!! Better late than never!!! The butterfly and bees are both Linda Luckin Design stamps. I flocked the bees and stamped the butterfly on acetate and added stickles and a bindi. The letter B was coloured using a gold ink pad then the edges of the tag were coloured using gold leafing pen by krylon.
