Fuzzy balloon

I've made an easel card (do people still make them, or am I really behind the times?).  It's been years since I last made one and this is the first time I've made a round one.  I might need to have a lie down in a dark room after all that effort  ;)

Butterflies & ewe

I've had this sweet wee stamp for years, but only used it a few times so thought it was time it had another airing.  I've teamed it with some papers I bought with a voucher I won in a recent blog challenge.

Skating fun

Another Christmas card.  This is technically a new stamp to me because I bought it either just before or just after my mojo left me, but this is the first time I've used it.  When our mojo goes why doesn't the compulsion to buy stamps also go?

I've just noticed that the angle of the photo makes it look as though I've stuck the Card Candi on wonky.

Santa spotting

I'm getting really brave in my old age!  Not only stamping straight onto card blanks but also stamping sentiments right beside images, after I've coloured the images!  That's what I call living dangerously.

Bee costume

A bit of a scary card for me.  It involved not only stamping a sentiment straight onto the card but the image too, eek!  Needless to say, it took more than one attempt to make this card ;)

Sharing spring

Another auction site purchase.  Everyone seems to be selling their Penny Black stamps at the same time I'm trying to add to mine, so it would be rude not to buy.  That's what I keep telling myself anyway ;)

Crazy dog

I've made the following card with one of a set of new stamps I bought recently, using leftover birthday money I had (my birthday was in April, how restrained am I?).  I've seen these stamps used on several blogs and they make me smile every time I see them.  Imagine my excitement when I found out that they had co-ordinating dies!  I also treated myself to a set of border dies, after seeing them used on Helen's blog.  I really need to stop looking at blogs!

This card is a bit out of my comfort zone as I don't really do clean and simple, more like messy and simple.  I really enjoyed making it though so I can see me making more like this, although this is my second attempt as I realised, when the card was finished, that the sentiment was wonky.

Good old Snowy again

Thank goodness I didn't get rid of my favourite stamp, during my craft stash purge, because I recently discovered there's a die for it!  Wahay!  I don't suppose it's one of the hardest stamp images to cut out, but I don't have the patience for that which is probably why I never took to decoupage.  Please excuse the photo, I found this card a right pain in the bum to get a half decent photo of and this is the best of a bad bunch.
