CP. August card swap

This month i was matched up with Cazarol. Now i do think she is very talented. I tried to make one of these cards and i must say, It was a total disaster lol. Cazarol also sent me some fabulous stamped images and flowers. Which i will no doubt have super fun colouring in :O) Thank You so much Cazarol. x

Choccys' spendy elf

Over on MSE theres been alot of talk of my spendy elf... The clever little tyke learnt my card number and was known to put lots of craft stuff into my basket. Then without me knowing pop in the card number and pay for the stuff !!! Well heres a picture that i caught of him hiding up the tree last Christmas...

Note to other parents... Never invite an elf into your house, They cost alot and get up to lots of mischief !!!

Crafty Place christmas in August

There was a challenge on the Crafty Place to make a Christmas card with no green,red or gold. Well its not called a challenge for nothing !! Heres my blue card :O) With a white tree a silver metal snowflake and white glitter card. Even my sweet noseless ones are coloured in blues and pinks and purples. I thoroughly enjoyed making this card. Even though i didnt think i would do.

More Saturday cards

I also had great fun with more of my 'noseless ones'. Can you see a pattern here with the cards i made ? I think i need to rename Saturday 'magnoliaday' ;O)
Edwin fishing was a stamp that i had seen and it had to come and live here. I searched high and low for little fishes but these were all that i could find. I dont think they look too bad though ?

The tilda standing in flowers was from the new Summer 09 set. The background stamp was a stamp i received in my alota grab bag,it just seemed to go with her. The little resin butterflies were from a back that i bought in a clearance sale.

Chasing Edwin is from the Butterflies set,as is the background.The background was coloured using my watercolour pencil crayons and Edwin was with my Whispers pens,apart from skin tones which are promarkers.

Saturday night cards

With the haloween card i embossed the haunted house using my cuttlebug folder.
