Papertakes Black, White + 1 Challenge
This weeks challenge at Papertakes is to use black, white plus 1 other colour on your card. I dug out one of my old Penny Black xmas stamps and stamped it with black Versafine and embossed it with Crystal Translucent embossing powder. I have added lots of Glamour Dust as well so it really sparkles in real life. (If you click on the pic yo can see all the bling!)
The border punch is from Martha Stewart and I have actually managed to use some of the holographic card which has been lurking in my paper drawers for the past 6/7 years!!! I only used a little piece though!
I am so pleased to be back making cards for Papertakes and I'd like to than Dawny and the girls for letting me take a short break.

Cute Card Thursday 'Pink + Green' Challenge, New Sarah Kay + Tilly!!
This weeks challenge at Cute Card Thursday is to use a pink and green colour combo on your card. I have used one of my favourite Magnolia Xmas stamps, the cute little snowman and papers from MME. The snowflake has been cut with the Nestabilities Create a Flake die 1 and an EK Success punch. I have used the Martha Stewart Icicle punch for the strip.I actually had time to make another card yesterday using one of the new Sarah Kay stamps which I got from Sir Stampalot. This is such a sweet image and one which I think I will be using a lot this year. The label has been cut using the Storybook Font cart and the Cricut, as I decided I really should start using my Cricut again!And finally here is a picture of Tilly (she has been to the vets and is officially a girl!!). We also found out that the reason she has weird feet is because she has a toe missing on each of her front feet, this doesn't stop her running around or doing anything though!Supplies

Cute Card Thursday, Spoonfull of Sugar + Timmy
Lots to show you today, the first card is my DT card for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is back to school. Seeing as the theme was the same as Tilda and Friends, I decided to make yesterday's ATC into a quick card.Here is a card for this weeks Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge made with 1 of the new Magnolia Tilda's from the Autumn Stamp Club kit. Their theme is distressing so I have used distress inks around the edge of the image. This is such a cute little Tilda and she looks perfect with the Magnolia papers from the Lazy Summer Days Collection. Have you seen the papers to match the new Yummy Tummy range, they look gorgeous! You can see them (and pre order) at Sir Stampalot, where you can also pre order the new Magnolia Ink magazine.

Finally here is a picture of Timmy - although we are still not sure if it is a he or she yet, I think it's name will be Timmy either way. He/she is getting really friendly now and seems to be settling in well.
