Hi all,
Hope you are enjoying what's left of half term and the weekend. Had half term off :0)
but back to work tomorrow for me! :0(
Still, soon be Christmas! Eeeeeek....what am I saying!
And on that note......... I have given myself a kick up the .... and got on with a few cards.
Lots of lovely sketches & challenges about, but being slow coach me, I have missed most of the dead lines! Still, I enjoy the inspiration.

Just got this one done in time for a challenge. The
Their challenge this week is "Aperture." After some thought I decided to have a go at my first shaker card 1. cos it needs an aperture, & 2. cos I wanted to make a 'snowy' kind a card.
After a lot of changes to my original plan, a very sticky pair of scissors and snow & glitter all over the place! I finally managed to come up with this....

This card was inspired by sketch #26 over at the Papertake challenge......loved the simplicity.

My next card used a sketch again, this time from the Just Magnolia challenge........only trouble is I was so focused on the layout I forgot all about a magnolia element.....oooops!

My final card was made for my daughter's friend, the brief was she likes green & yellow , so here's what I came up with....

Thanks for visiting...
