Fun With Dies!

 I made these cards using the SU bird punch - still a fave of mine!

 I stamped two different SU butterflies and cut them out then stacked them together on the blue card above. 
 The gold wings on the cat is a new set of dies.  The wings come in two sizes; these ones are the smaller wings.  The words are a new stamp.  The cat stamp is from Inkadinkado and is from a set of cat stamps.
 The Eiffel Tower, doily and green oblong are all new dies.  The blue card is kind of sparkly.
 I have used butterfly stamps form SU on this card, as well as their small scallop punch.  The word "Bliss" is also from a SU stamp set.
 These bookmarks are made using a dies from Hero Arts.
 The oblong die comes with the scallop oval die and the zig-zag line die.
 The colours are a bit pale on the two book marks above - apologies!
And last but not least is Romeo in his new favourite bed - under the television!!  This was taken in the bright sun so it is a bit pale.  He loves to sleep here and spends most of the day here!  This spot gets the sun most of the day so it keeps Romeo warm & cosy!
Thanks for visiting today!

I Made Some Cards!

 While it poured with heavy rain/hail last weekend, I made cards!  Freezing cold (my house is old and is like a freezer in winter) and bucketing down with rain, I decided it was a good time to make cards!  I made the blue one above using a Stampin Up decoration stamp which I cut out after stamping five of them.  The "Merry Christmas" words are also from a Stampin Up stamp set.
 This black & white card is also made using SU stamps (not the words) and the mini scallop punch.  I enjoy making black & white cards.
 These two butterfly cards were inspired by Dawn (  Please check out her wonderful blog, she is truly inspiring!  Thank you Dawn:-)
 The card by the butterflies is actually a burgundy colour but here it looks black!  The butterflies are from Stampin Up.  The bigger ones I stamped then cut out by hand.  The smaller ones are from an SU die. The words are also form SU.
 These two photo's loaded up in the wrong order:-(  The cat face is on the front of the card, the bum is on the inside and is on a wobbly spring, so it wobbles when you open the card!  So cute!  These stamps, words too, are from Art Impressions.  My friend Robyn inspired this card as she sent me one the same & I fell in love with it & had to buy the stamps!  (Thanks Hastings Rubber Stamps NZ)
The pink heart circle is a die.  I embossed the bottom of the card using my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  (Thank you PAT for sending me that!)
Okay, that's me for today thank you for dropping by!  I hope your Monday is going well!
I am battling an ongoing sore throat at the moment due to sinus trouble which never seems to completely clear up.  Need I say it is driving me crazy!  The only relief I get is from keeping up the painkillers.
Okay, catch yo next time!  {{HUGS}} from me to YOU:-)
