Wee memories challenge:week 73 'Free for all'

Hi here is my card entry for this weeks challenge at Wee Memories. This week the challenge was to make a project with your own inspiration. So as Christmas will be here soon I made this Christmas card to add to my cards to send out. I stitched the edges of the green paper, layered up some other papers and used my border punch along the bottom. I then added this snowman cut with my cricut to finish off the card. This year I am really enjoying making my Christmas cards as I am normally unorganized and only make a few, which is naughty as I then have to go out and buy a huge stock of cards. Not ideal when you are a cardmaker he he.

The design team have done another amazing job this week at Wee Memories, go and take a look and get ready to be very inspired:

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day!

Wee memories challenge 'holiday madness'.

Hello, here is my card for the Wee Memories challenge 'Holiday Madness'. I thought I would make a Christmas card as I need to make a start and thought this would be a good way to do so. I never make enough Christmas cards but I will start making some more soon.  I thought this mouse and reindeer was so cute so I used my cricut to cut them out, and gave the reindeer a cute scarf and nose. The ribbon is actually an old ribbon from a Christmas present a few years ago so at least im recyling :)

There are loads of lovely cards on the wee memories blog:
The design team are amazing! Thank you for stopping by,

Shabby tea room week 82: A shabby Autumn

Hi, here is this weeks challenge at the shabby tea room 'A shabby Autumn'. Head on over to their beautiful blog and take a look at all the lovely cards. 

My shabby autumn card was made by sewing an orange cardstock base to the front of my card, I then used my border punches across the bottom. The greeting is embossed and I also added a scallop edge to the side. My witch was from the graphics fairy and i thought she looked really sweet so I added her onto the card as the main image.

I actually made the flower and I also folded up a piece of ribbon to stick along the top. So this was my finished card, I really enjoyed this challenge as I love autumn and all the yellow and brown colours it makes me feel cosy :)

Thanks for looking ;)
