25 January 2009
I just sketched out the shape of kittys head on some core-dinations black magic card and then embossed it with the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder then rubbed it back. Added on the features then made a background with some patterned paper off cuts and some more core-dinations, this time torn to reveal the core colour. Jammed the whole thing together and finished with the chipboard heart and the tape writer message.
Thanks for another fab dare!
I've got a sewing project to share tomorrow, if you have a Nintendo DS and like me you are good at leaving the little cartridges everywhere then losing them you might like it ;-)
Oh and don't forget about blog candy, here. End date for blog candy draw is the 1st of Feb.

So anyway all this creative-ness has made me think I should update my blog with not just card things but try and include other makes to share so that's my aim for this year for defo. I'm also working my way though my stash piles and I've decided to do an A-Z of manufacturers challenge so for A I picked out American Crafts and I've only allowed myself to use American Crafts goodies. You can play along if you want to or make your own A-Z challenge up to get your inspro going. It's come in really handy for me already because my calendar in January and early Feb is full of birthdays...
A for American Crafts
I used lots of their lush patterned papers, Guesthouse Foam shapes, Minimark rub-ons, ribbon, Flair and Thickers. Everything is American Crafts apart from a little bit of felt and that one paper blossom and button, hey it's my challenge, my rules :P
OK on to blog candy business, I did say that I would do a give-away when I got to my 100th post so here is what I came up with. I plundered the office draw that has a load of spare goodies in from past Crafty Templates kits, added a few extra bits and pieces and made up two kits to giveaway!
1. Boy cards
