New Home
I love this embossing folder from Cuttlebug, It takes ink really well, which is why this print worked out well. The text is a mix of Memory Box  alphas, and the Happy word from WPlus9. The little house is from a Poppy Stamp strip die of  houses.
CASology's key word this time is HOME so this kinda fits!

Freshly Made Sketch

I really like this layout from Freshly Made Sketches and can see me using it many times over in future.
The DP on this is a scrap from Pink Petticoat which has been in my drawer for a while but I think it looks great in this small strip.
The punched hearts have been embossed with Holographic embossing powder and the font used for the sentiment is 'are you serious'. I thought that the rounded edges of the card matched the style of the font rather well.

Hi Sweetie

I have a few cards to make today and before I crack on with those, I'd just like to post this quickie card for CASology's Candy challenge before it closes.
This image is a digi from Dustin Pike, coloured with Mirage pens, cut out and popped up onto dimensional pads. The sentiment is computer generated in 'my oh my' font. I think it's rather cool... the font that is.
Now to get on with my day!

Little creatures

On Thursday I did a little demo-ing at my local Hobbycraft store. I was doing mainly die-cutting with my new Cuttlebug... my old one was rather like me...showing signs of age!
I met some really lovely people, although my start was delayed by an emergency trip to the dentist after breaking my temporary bridge on Wednesday evening. 
In getting out my stash to take, I suppose the idea for this card came to mind. These dear little ladybird dies are from Elizabeth Designs. (Sometimes it's quicker to check the make of products online rather than scrabbling through my drawer of empty packets to find out.) The branch is Memory Box and the flowers are Sizzix. The edge punch is from Martha Stewart.

More ladybirds here, this time from Impression Obsession. I think they're rather cool
The challenge at "Less is More" this week is Little Creatures... I think these are small enough.
This afternoon I shall be heading off for a little retail therapy with a couple of chums and then we will be joined in the evening by our respective spouses for a meal to celebrate my friend's birthday!
What a nice way to spend a day!
I would like to say hi to Elaine, whom I met in Hobbycraft the other day, I tried to reply to her comment but I'm not sure if it works going through Blogger. So, Hi Elaine and thanks for your kind words!
