I'm Fabulous

First rule of craft club - NEVER throw anything away.
So, I dug deep into my redundant stash for this week's
Less is More challenge
 and found some word stickers that I have had FOREVA!

My choice of words was limited to - discover, hope, create, inspire,
laugh, enjoy or fabulous.
It had to be fabulous dahling  :-)

I also got to use my new doggy stamp. I couldn't resist him.
He's really for Christmas, 
but I think he works well on this birthday card too.

You can't really make it out in the pics, but the grey card has a lovely
metallic sheen to it and the letters are felt, so that adds some texture.
(Not sure what make the word stickers are, they have long since lost
their packaging)

Fall Friends

Wow! Things are getting busy here - it's only 2 weeks before my
youngest daughter gets married, 
but I did manage to grab half an hour in my craft room today.

Here's my card.

I've used my new stamps and dies from WPlus9 - 
I just love those cute, little leaves.

Here's a tip for you. 
With these sets of dies, some of them are so tiny, 
that it's VERY easy for them to be swept up with the rubbish 
and scooped into the bin.
When I get a new set I write on the packet how many dies it contains.
Then, when my card is finished I count them all back in.
No more fishing in the bin!

Once again I've followed the sketch over at
Sorry about the pics.
They seem fine on my comp, but when I upload them to blogger
they go a little dark and blurry.

I'm so dizzy, my head is spinning

A quick spinner card for this week's
CASology challenge.

One of these bears is definitely dizzy :-)

Hope the video works so you can see the spin in action.

I got the music in me

I still can't get enough of these band bunnies.
Here they are in purple.

These bunnies die-cut so beautifully,
then they just need a little colouring, and popping up on foam tape.

Today I played along with

which is quickly becoming my favourite challenge.
I love seeing how everyone interprets the sketch so differently.
