The frog and turtle

'The frog and turtle' sounds like a wacky name for a pub! Anyway, there's a frog and a turtle on this post-it note holder - the holder itself was made by using my Hougie board to score lines for the folds to surround the post-it notes.

The card I used was recycled from a stationery set (it was part of the cover) - too good to waste.

This is for:

The pink elephant 121: scoring (sorry, you can't actually see it, but scoring was used with my Hougie board to create the wrap-around to house the sticky notes)
Die cuttin' divas 37: scaly, cold-blooded reptiles (the turtle)
Cuddly buddly 16: anything but a card
The crafty pad 143: monochromatic

A little bird told me ...

This week's Less is more challenge 37 is 'cocktail' - I was going to make a card featuring a cocktail drink and then I decided to make one featuring a cockerel instead. I've used a Woodware stamp by Jennifer Garant that I received quite a while ago as part of a prize for winning a Woodware USA challenge.

One layer Wednesday 68 is asking us to 'get triangular' - the shape of the cockerel.

The theme for this week's Daring cardmakers is 'A little bird told us ...' - the challenge is being sponsored by The Ribbon Reel - so I'm also linking for that.

Yet another card made with AG materials. This time it's another one for my CHNC challenge 42: baubles or anything hanging. If you haven't yet discovered my Christmas challenge blog please click on the link and have a look - it would be lovely if you could join in - it's time to think seriously about making those Christmas cards before time goes and panic begins to set in.

More jolly holly

Yes, it's another card made with Anna Griffin materials - simply put together, but I like it. This time I layered up on to a 7 x 5 card, matted with some tartan paper from my offcuts box.
