So, thank you Andrea for sharing this little fellow with me.
If you are wondering how I created the corners, pop over to the the Cupboard and see how you can make them with Square Nesties.
Hope to catch up with my visiting soon, ikki

I came by this stamp over a year ago from my craft group, but I've forgotten the name and maker. It's cute sticklike image and the football season approaching, made it jump out of the box. So I used the local Premier Team's colours and designed this.
To make it a bit different I made it a "wibbly, wobbly" card (probably not the proper name!). I've seen this done with an acetate strip, but using wire produces a much better wibble, wobble!
I was so pleased with the results of "playing" and with some new ideas that jumped out of my head, that I will be using this card in my tutorial next week. So if you think it interesting - drop by the Cupboard on Monday.
Thanks Stamptacular for the challenge.

Of course, I had to use the Bug and my new Fiskar border punch, which along with my scoreboard made a different kind of spine border and corner. The centre square is a Nestie and with using a smaller Nestie and embossing round it with an embossing pen you get the effect of layering. Mock layering - this could take on! I was amazing at what results I got from one small flower stamp stamped at different angles and decoupaged. Thanks for the challenge, I learned a lot! ikki

I'm fed up with pinks and purples so I thought I'd like to go bright and cheerful for a change and these are the cards I came up with. Different for me, I think you'll agree.
Hope to be back soon. I'm trying to re-organized myself - not sure how successful, or how possible, that it!

I even made a box for it, well two to be honest - the first was a bit rough! Never made one before but must say it made the card look good!

I have managed a few cards - an Easter card for my grandchildren and a Just to say card for friends who were taken ill on holiday. I just love this paper, the colours and image are so spring like. Daffs are my fav in the spring, but at Christmas - no way!

Great challenges from all these sites this week. Really enjoyed joining in.
Pink Elephant challenge was a textured background and layout which I acheived by using Cuttlebug folder Fantasy Flowers
Cute card challenge asked for a family card
Penny Black challenge was for a Spring theme
I think I managed this, but the picture quality is poor.

I have used the Stylized Flower folder and made a modifying folder pad (MFP) which gives a whole new look to the original pattern.
If you would like to know just how I achieved this, pop over to ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard where you will find a tutorial on using this method of embossing.

This week's challenge was for BLING. Now, I'm not normally
a bling girl, (ah, shame) more like a plain Jane (ah, shame),
But for once I had a go and it turned out definitely BLING for me.
It was so bling in fact that I struggled to get a picture of it!
I used a flower punch to punch flowers into the silver glitter card, which I then matted onto Silver Mirror card. The PB image I coloured with prisma pencils and chalked the edges, this I then matted onto black glimmer paper. Gems and more glitter added
to make sure I had the total Bling effect. (Well for me anyway.)
Have a good day!
