I used some of my new nesties to cut out this card. (It opens from the top) Using my snowman cuttlebug die & folder, I punched out the baubles etc then embossed them. I added some bows & some KindyGlitz & that was it! I wasn't sure whether or not to add some string for the baubles, the jury is still out on that one! This card was easy & quick to make & fun! Thanks for visiting & have a great week!
I used my Fiskars circle punch to punch out the dark silver circle. I then used a plain circle nestie to cut out the centre of it. I used a scallop nestie for the pale silver scallop circle. On a white piece of scrap card I stamped the girl image & then used a plain circle nestie to cut it out to fit inside the dark silver circle. I used my copics to colour the image. I put the circles together & adhered them to the card with sponge tape. I put the blue ribbon across the card first. I added two pale silver flowers (using a punch) & put a blue flower gem on top. Lastly I added the gold corners & lines around the card - both are stickers.

After doing the laundry, posting the mail, grocery shopping & a visit to the physio for my hip, I still had time to make these two cards! (see post below for 2nd card) I did well today! Been trying out my latest nesties, they are so much fun!
Thanks for visiting & have a great week & a great Christmas! This card & the one below (Wintergirl) were inspired by cards I saw on Becs blog, make sure you pop across & have a look, she has some awesome card idea's!! And check out her online shop, it is amazing!! I buy all my nesties from here, her prices are great too! www.bizzybecscardmakingscrapbooking.com.au Thanks for the inspiration Bec! PS Bec has some great competitions going right now...don't miss out!!
I used my nesties to cut out the two shapes (white & burgundy) then stamped the girl, masked her & then stamped the tree's behind her. I used my copics to colour the whole card. I lightly sponged the sky in blue. I added some brads to the corners. I used my cuttlebug die for the big snowflake. It is cut from a sparkly sort of fibre material/paper. Much prettier IRL! I used one of my cuttlebug embossing folders for the dots (in green) behind the girl. It's not the Swiss Dots one, this one has bigger dots & comes with a die with baby words on. A fun card to make!

I love to photograph Bumblebee's, so I wandered around ny garden today looking for some! If you look closely at this photo you will see I found THREE on this one flower! I don't think I've ever done that before! They are only tiny BB's, but BB's they are!! I used the sports setting because they move so quickly & they end up just a blur! Ok, that's me for today, have a lovely weekend & I will be back soon with more cards...or something! And just incase I don't blog again before Christmas, have a wonderful Christmas everyone who reads this! (Happy Summer Solstice!) Thank you so much for visiting - heart hugs from me!
I don't know why I am still making Christmas cards, I have sent & received all of mine for this year! I used my nesties to cut the shapes around the reindeer & the scalloped heart. The ribbon is chocolate brown with a gold edge. Not much to this card really! Thanksfor visiting!
Oops! I was in a bit of a rush & forgot to crop this before I posted it:-( Anyway, I've used the Lace Tree embossing folder for this card. It looks much better IRL:-) I also made some on white card but needed to get them into the post asap, so they never got posted! The stars on this card are all silver & glittery! (No wonder I go out covered in glitter..) I have been making a few cards lately but have either sent them in the mail or hand delivered them without scanning them. I've also been doing more photography too.
Been playing with my new embossing folders & have made a Christmas card wit one of them. I hope to download t & post it soon...watch out for it!
Thanks for visiting & I will see you again next time:-)

Here are some 'action' shots of "Bella" playing with a (very dead) bird she had just caught. She was very proud of her 'catch' & after bringing it inside to show me, she took it outside on the lawn! I nearly had a purple fit when I discovered her in the lounge with a (dead) bird sitting ont he floor in front of her!! Not MY idea of fun, that's for sure! After a bit of encouragement from me she took it outside:-)
That's when the "action" began! I don't like the idea of cats killing birds, but I know it happens & I have to accept it.
I took about 30 + cards I had made, to the local hospital the other day & they were very grateful. They will sell them in their shop. I get alot of pleasure from donating my cards to them. Well it's LATE, & I am off to bed now!
Thanks for visiting & I hope to have some more stamped cards soon! Take care & have a great Friday!

Here is one of the 8 cat cards I made today! They are all simple easy cards to make that didn't take alot of time to make. "Simple & Easy" is my motto right now! This stamp is a "Stamps By Judith" stamp. One I have had for many years.
Thanks for visiting & I hope you all had a great weekend!
I used my new cuttlebug folder to emboss this silver card. The card didn't need much added to it so I just glued 3 paper flowers to it. The card looks blue but IRL it is silver! A sort of sparkly silver. I also added some tiny pearls to the center of each flower.
This is a really cute stamp! Just love those little mice curled up in puss' arms! I embossed a scallop circle (cut with my nesties) with my snowflake folder & stuck the card with the cat on, on top. I had fun making these cat cards, they are all quick & easy cards to make & were alot of fun! (Fun is important!)
