I made this card to enter some challenges. I adapted an old Creative Pointe SVG cutting file for the snow globe. The snowman is a Purple Onion stamp and the sentiment is Hero Arts.  Finally, I used lots og white gel pen.

Cheesy Birthday


I made this card for my grandson - when his mum asked him how he wanted his birthday cake decorated, he said he wanted it like a big cheese! I don't know why! But it gave me the idea for this card. 

I used two sets from Heffy Doodles - the mice and cheese stamps, coloured with Promakers, were easy to  cut out with scissors, and the sentiment was put together using stamps from the other set.  The number 11 is shiny dimensional stickers.

Inkspirational - Autumn Leaves


Our new challenge at Inkspirational  is Autumn Leaves. 

In our garden we have a huge old oak tree that sheds zillions of leaves every autumn and guess who gets the thankless task of clearing them up every autumn weekend? Not me, I can tell you!  Well, thankless task no more - this year, my dear partner will receive a thank you card for his labour! 

So, for my DT card I used fox and leaves stamps by Sugar Pea Designs, coloured with Promarkers and framed with a stencilled leaf  shape that I cut on my Silhouette cutting machine.

As You Like It  - fave wild animal is the fox as we get a lot of these in the garden too.
