Happy Halloween!

The lanterns are ready, cakes made, costumes waiting to be put on (this will happen 2 seconds after the kids walk through the door after school!) and the house is decorated!
Hope you all have a fun filled evening!

Sugar Nellie ~ Rory

Couldn't resist making a card with the cute Rory from Sugar Nellie! He arrived yesterday with a few other yummy stamps I couldn't resist buying at the weekend from Funky Kits! The papers are new too, they are Fancy Pants and the note is from K&Co Blue Awning Journal Pad, love these, they add instant appeal!
With some flowers this image could easily be adapted for a feminine card but I decided to stick to buttons for a more masculine look!
This is my first card in about 3 weeks, can you believe it? I nearly didn't know where to start and was seriously lacking in confidence - must not take such long breaks in future!
Thanks for visiting!
Supplies: Stamp ~ Sugar Nellie 'Rory'
DP ~ Fancy Pants 'Papa'
Embellishments ~ K&Co Blue Awning journal pad, buttons, photo corners and ticket from RAK, Star charm from Jeneca Beads

I'm Home

Just got back from our jollies last night, there is still a mountain of laundry to wade through but it is good to be home. We had a fabulous holiday in Lanzarote, some lovely sunshine, we had a well-earned rest and the kids had a ball! Shame about the weather back here in the UK though!
Got back to some fab news, I made it as a guest DT member for Sugar Nellie! Can't wait and of course couldn't resist some of the new stamps just released tonight so don't think it will be long before I have something to show!
Thank you all so much for all your sweet comments, as soon as I am sorted out I will be dropping by to see what you have all been up to!
Hope you are having a great weekend!

Sorry for the lack of new cards, I am taking a break for a few weeks, having a holiday and catching up with decorating the house. I hope to still drop by and visit you all when I can, in between coats of paint and when I need a coffee break!

Cute Card Thursday ~ Christmas Animals

The Cute Card Thursday challenge this week is
Christmas Animals!
I couldn't think of a better Christmas animal than a reindeer! A great excuse for me to use my Whiff of Joy Charlotte in Sledge. I found this fabulous Basic Grey paper with reindeer on, so perfect for this card, the paper is from the Blitzen range, how appropriate!
Check out the amazing DT cards and check out the Team's blogs for more ideas and inspiration!

A little studio G stamp for inside, no wonder I have no time, I can't make a card now without decorating the inside! You can just see where I added an extra layer here for some dimension. Debby does this on almost all her cards and they always look fabulous!
Supplies: DP ~ Basic Grey 'Blitzen'
Cardstock ~ SU 'ruby red'
Stamps ~ whiff of joy 'Charlotte in sledge', Autumn Leaves 'For the record 2', Studio G
Embellishments ~ Prima festive pail, Dovecraft Brads, Rub-on Sentiment by Letraset
