Cute Card Thursday 479 - CAS

New Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday with the theme CAS. And we are sponsored by Bugaboo this week.  Now most of my cards are pretty simple so I went with what I thought was CAS. And boy do I struggle with these kind. But I'm kinda happy with the result.


I have used this oldie from Bugaboo. Bugaboo have some fab images of all styles. Not much to say about my card as I haven't even used any DP. I know right.

Cute Card Thursday 476 - Anything Goes

Another week, another challenge. The theme this week over at Cute Card Thursday is Anything Goes. Super easy - right. We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps and boy do they have some super cute stamps (do check out their Penguins)


Well for my card I have used one of those super cute penguins. This one is rubber Penguin and Pup. I have coloured them up with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper stumps. The papers are from K and Co from many years ago. But I don't buy paper suitable for boys too often. So I dug out some oldies. I have also used an old sketch from Sketch Saturday so would like to enter it over there.

Cute Card Thursday 474 - Birthdays

Onto a new challenge at Cute Card Thursday (well yesterday anyway) and we have a super easy theme of Birthdays. We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps.


I decided to get one of my many Gorjuss Girl stamps coloured and onto a card. So I chose this one by Personnal Impressions (no longer available though). Although you can get a slightly smaller version now by Do crafts. She is stuck down a bit squint, so I added some seaweed to try and disguise it. I looks a bit better anyway. But I also like how the seaweed looks - result. The seaweed is a mixture of dies from Lala Land and Joanna Sheen and the shells are from Marianne Designs. The tag is an MFT die and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Sweet Sixteen by Melissa Bennett. She is coloured with Copics for a change. And a few pearls added to finish. I am going to enter this into the challenge over at In the Pink - pink with Pearls. I think I have covered both of them.

Another week by and another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. This week we have the theme of more than one fold. We are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps.


I decided to go with a box card thingie. It actually turned out better than I thought. I used the super cute Summer Swing. Cut it out and hung it to make it look like it was swinging. I have used a selection of dies. The fish bone tag and stitched rectangle are MFT. The tree and some of the grass are Lea'bilities. The bird is Memory Box. The pink flowers are X cut and the sentiment is Mama Elephant. Oh and the gingham is from Pink Petticoat (but I don't think they are still on the go.


And a close up of the wee puddy cat. Isn't it cute.

Another super easy Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday for you all. It's an anything goes theme, so come on what you waiting for. We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps this week.

Well another week and that means another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. We have a Valentine theme going on this week. We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps this week.


For my project this week, I've made a bag / box thingie. Yep technical name. I found some heart doilies in a box that I must have had for years, so why not use one - right. Black card for the box (nightmare to take a photo if though) and some red paper for the bottom. I used an old Martha Stewart border punch for the border. A bit of ribbon, some sequins and heart gems. Oh, and don't forget the cute Penguin. He is from Whimsy Stamps and is digital - so instant - Yay. You can find the tutorial for the bag here.

That's another week gone by. And another Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme this week is cool colours/tones. We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps.This one nearly had me stumped - I'm not quite ready to be making Christmas cards (OK, so I should get starting them), but that's OK, blue is a cool colour right. So a New Baby Boy card we have. I have used this wee cutie from Lili of the Valley. I can only find him in digi form, but that means no waiting on the Postie.
