NanaConnie said: Bugaboo Stamps image "Skull Tree."  It was such a wonderful silhouette, I printed it large enough to fill the entire card front and my only embellishment was the added bits of glitter to the eyes and the pumpkin.  Nice CAS design.

For my card, I chose the adorable Strawberry Mouse by Karen Middleton at Sweet Pea Stamps. I coloured this little cutie with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop him up with foam tape.  I made a fun background with some angled panels.  I started by stamping a leaf cluster with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.  Then I did some ink blending with the same Distress Ink.  I layered red, green, and black cardstock strips and some strawberry-patterned paper strips.  I die-cut the Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks in red and added some punny words with my Dymo label maker.  I added a strawberry charm from my stash, tied with baker's twine, and finished off the card with a number of white sequins.


For this heart easel card, I´m working with "How to tame the beast", design by Charity Dauenhauer and provided by Sweet Pea Stamps.

My tower is to the charming CLYDE, who kindly gives us the sponsor BUGABOO DIGI STAMPS !!!!

Hi! This week my animal magic is the beautiful and mysterious unicorn. In my card, the adorable  Unicorn   of  our sponsor BUGABOO DIGI .

For my second card for this challenge I've used the same image as last week, but instead of using light colours I've gone for darker shades and loads of gems and glitter. The papers I've used this time are called 'Neighbourwood'. Half of the 48 sheets are already glittered. There's leaves, acorns, tree bark, flowers, butterflies and sheets with animlas, which I've punched out. The little bottle contains magical purple fary dust! It's a little cord necklace for someone who's a Pisces... There's a little fairy charm attached too!
Unfortunetly my intended Bugaboo card (which was rabbits and elephants on some rabbit rainbow backing paper) got covered in dust after hubby sandpapered the walls in my near empty craft room and worse still, he can't remember where he put my box of Promarkers! So...here's an oldie from last year, featuring a chick and an elephant.

For this card I used the Monster Rose-Colored, and this is a little different because you don´t need to paint, this cute monster is already colored. Just print and cut it. As additional elements I used a button, orange floss and little Love sentiment.

I had to show you this image and sentiment combo, it makes me laugh so much! I've already seen Christmas tins of biscuits and chocolates in the shops! This is called Halloween Christmas Owl Trio from Bugaboo.

This is a very quick Christmas card to follow on from the owls, using Snowflake Silhouette Reindeer  from Bugaboo, to which I added a lilac shadow then covered in glitter film before die cutting.
