Tatty Ted

I thought it was about time that Tatty Ted had an airing on a couple of cards - such a cute character and handy for all sorts of occasions. He, or maybe this is a female relative, has been combined with an embossed Die'sire folder) background which was highlighted with some wax and a couple of die cut shapes using a Nellie die set. Once the cutting and embossing was done this was quite a quick and easy card to put together.

House of Cards

We are into the third week at the House of Cards so the theme is CLASSIC AND ELEGANT following the sketch which we have been given as inspiration for the month. Somehow I've managed to miss the first two weeks this month - sorry!

I decided to use a Marianne  corner die cut four times with a floral stamp from Stampin' up onto some Spellbinder oval shapes and a simple computer greeting. Background paper is from my stash - a pad which lost its cover I'm afraid.

The challenge this week at Make My Monday is HALLOWEEN and this will be my second project on this topic, which considering I don't really 'do' Halloween is good going.  This time I decided to take a look at what I have available within Craft Artist and luckily there were some suitable items for me to build up a spooky scene.

One of Those Weeks

Most of my weeks seem to go by in a flash but this last one seems to have been speedier than others - probably because I have been out most days for various reasons.  I'm just scraping in by the skin of my teeth this week for the Make My Monday challenge which has the theme of  TEXTURE.  This card has been made using various embossing folders and dies from Tonic, Creative Expressions and Spellbinders.  The sentiment is a stamp from Stampin' Up.  I've not managed to visit and comment on as many blogs as usual either so apologies to any I've missed - I'll try harder in the coming week!!
