Cute Card Thursday ~ Renew, reuse, recycle

Here is my creation for Cute Card Thursday.  The theme this week is Reuse, Renew and Recycle!
I used an old tag from a garment and the two ribbons on the handles were from some gift packaging. 
The image is a Whimsy digital image by Crissy Armstrong called 'Maya making wishes', she is such a sweetie! I also used the fabulous Whimsy stamps ticket sentiment stamps designed by Ann Vento aka Raindrop Echo Designs.   Whimsy have a brand new digital release coming up next Thursday July 1st, I can't wait to see them all!  I am unfortunately stepping down from the Whimsy Design Team officially next week so won't be taking part in the release but I am so excited to see the new images!

Think of me this morning, I am at the dentist sorting a tooth that has been giving me pain for 2 days, I had to give in, even though I dread going! Hope you are having a better day! 
Thanks for dropping by!

Cute Card Thursday ~ A Sketch by Claudia

WE have a fantastic sketch over at Cute Card Thursday this week by Claudia.
Apologies for the very simple card, I made a different card originally then discovered I had followed the wrong sketch so managed to whip this one up in a half hour, some kind of miracle for me!  I did already have the image coloured so that helped!
We are so sad to say goodbye to Andrea on CCT, hopefully only temporarily, fingers crossed she will be back in the not too distant future! 
We are holding a DT call so if you are interested please apply following the directions on this week's CCT post.  There is also a DT call running on the Whimsy Website but do hurry it closes on friday 18th June!
The image I used on my card this week is from the very talented MelJen Designs, so love her images.  This one is called Bulldogs bear.  The papers are Basic Grey 'Max and Whiskers'
Thank you for dropping by and apologies for not visiting, we are busy and having such a lovely time with family visiting just now.  I will get around everyone very soon!
Have a fab day!

Cute Card Thursday ~ Anything but a square

The Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week is asking for anything but a square.  I know this looks a little like a square but when it is opened not so much!  I didn't have time for anything more creative unfortunately!
I used this super cute little fellow, 'Happy Little Gnome' from Whimsy Stamps, a digi illustrated by Melissa Jenkins.

If you saw my post from yesterday you will know why I am not around much, have family visiting from the Uk and also it is now school summer vacation so we are busy, busy, busy.  I will drop in with a card from time to time and visit when I can but just can't promise anything!
Hope you are all having a fabulous week and thank you for dropping by!

Nothing, it is as bare as Old Mother Hubbard's Cupboard!
Just dropping in to let you know I am not going to be around very often in the next few weeks.
It is school Summer Vacation here now and  we have family visiting from the UK so I won't have much time for either creating or blogging! 
I do have  a card for CCT for tomorrow and I will try to drop in weekly but we will see!
have a great day!
I will leave you with one of the coasters!
