The challenge this week is Seasons and i picked winter to get another Christmas card done
I went for a black and white theme and used the cuttelbug snowflake folder and my little Christmas doggie stamp and some lovely black and silver ribbon and a couple of jewels- the photos doesn't really do the embossing justice
There is going to be a new cuttlebug challenge site with the challenges posted on a Wednesday and guess what I am on the design team for it so come along and support your loving cuttlebug and join in the fun.In the process of getting all set up at the moment but the web address will be http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/ The first challenge will be on Wed1st October so come join us I am really excited to be part of this as I just love my cuttlebug and my FunkyHand mate Carol is also on the DT team- woohoo toot toot
The challenge this week is to make a card costing under £1
The snow paper came in a bargain pack and cost roughly 10p a sheet, the jewels would be approx another 10p, the wool about 2p the sentiment about 5p and the embellishment about 5p as this was a bargain pack with loads in it from the pound shop, the card blank was free with a magazine and you could not include you stamp, paint etc

7 Things about me: mmm let me think! this could take a while then... 1.I spent my 40th Birthday in the haunted bedroom of a castle- oops giving my age away 2. I adore Elvis 3.I hate spiders 4. I used to be a punk rocker, then a new romantic- ah the good old days! 5. I, once at work while out on a house visit had to pull up an old woman's tights for her as she was struggling to get dressed and i think she thought I was a nurse and was there to dress her- but I wasn't, but I did anyway - good deed done for that day 6. I want to go to Graceland- and have even bought Elvis embellishments for the scrap book of my trip 7. I love Halloween
