Secret Crafter Saturday challenge

The theme for this week is 'Zoo' we have to use an image of an animal we would find in a zoo. I used the very 1st stamp my daughter bought, which is a Polar bear stamp by Anita. My sort of New Year's resolution was to start making Christmas cards in Feb so I'm not still making them on xmas eve, this challenge has got me started !!
This is the 1 st time I used this snowflake folder too and I think it's lovely, will definately be using this alot. The sentiment is PB which I stamped onto shrink plastic and coloured with chalk, then shrunk. The snowflakes are punched out.
Thanks for looking, and I appreciate your comments so please leave me one before you hop off :-)

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

This is the 1st time I've attempted a circular card. I only have the small circle nesties so i made a small card :-) The main image is 'picked for you' and the small hedgie is from the 'well wishers' stamp. I chose hedgie images cos they can curl themselves up intio a ball and 'roll' !! Well not really, but my DD did ask me if I had chosen hedgehogs for that reason :-)
The sentiment is from the WOJ sentiment set.

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments

My 1st card as Guest Designer for the Sketch and Stash Challenge :-)

What a nerve wracking experience making a card as a Guest designer for the Sketch and Stash Challenge, not as easy as I thought, when I'd finished it I was happy with it but thought maybe I should start again ,,,,,
Anyway, there it is, I hope you like it.This fab sketch is by Becky :-) The Tilda is a new 'comfy tilda' which i bought from The Glitter Pot and new buttons by Papermania from Binky Crafts The tulip stamp is by Hampton Art and have had it forever,, the birds are hand drawn :-) The DP is from a 6x6 book of background papers by Crafty Individuals aand the purple distressed paper is a download from Funky Fairy's. I used my oval nesties,the scalloped one is made using purple core'dinations which have then been cuttlebugged with the script folder. I also used a strip of black/purple core'dinations underneath the ribbon too. The text is also new and is from the Whiff Of Joy sentiment set
Thanks for looking, your comments are very much appreciated :-)
