Rounding the corners

On 365 cards today the theme is 'I'm rounding the corner'. I found this sketch on Everybody Art challenge 33, which was just right to combine with this. And I deliberately used all BG infuse papers so that I could (very late, but still wanted to do it) link for BG 26: all round.

I can't believe that the challenges on 365 cards have now been going for a whole month - and I've done every one of them.
My new printer was delivered earlier today (the old one - well, it wasn't actually that old - packed up the other day). The new one is a wireless network one, so it is sitting behind me the other side of the room. I tried the printing a while ago and then decided to try scanning this card - not a bad result for a first try.

happy cake and ice cream day!

I had an idea for the challenge on Cuttlebug this week, inspiration 24: Cuttlebug meets cupcake. I had some sticky backed white glistening felt like material that I thought would be just right for icing, so I ran it through the d'vine swirls embossing folder, but you can hardly see the swirls. So I did the background with the hearts embossing folder, but, because it is glitter card, although it has embossed well, it's difficult to see it here, but there really is Cuttlebug embossing on this card!

The current challenge on ABC is G for glitter (gosh, G already and H tomorrow!), so this qualifies for that, and also Secret Crafter 23: have your cake and eat it; linking too for One Stop Craft challenge 22: bling tastic (more bling on this one than the one I linked earlier in the week).

The base of the cake was cut from a coffee cup holder and lots of Poundland bling added on to the icing.

Ladybug or ladybird

Yesterday's prompt on 365 cards was to include a ladybug. Do you say 'ladybug' or 'ladybird'? I think it depends which side of the Atlantic you come from!

Anyway, I used Friday Sketchers challenge 45 sketch for this card:

I'm also linking for Colour Create challenge 7: red and green, with the option of wings (and, yes, ladybirds do have wings - remember the little poem: Fly away, ladybird ...?) and also for Mixed Media Monday: come fly with me!

I'm not sure what the spotty paper is, but the bit behind the ladybird is Anna Griffin and the band across is K & Co.

The ladybird is another of those springy stickers from Poundland (had them for ages and ages - used a dinosaur a couple of days ago and now this).

There is a spring hidden between the two layers of the ladybird, so that she can go 'boing'!!

BF CJ School days

Once again, a great big thank you to everyone who contributed to make this a very special CJ.

Dewdrop Craftz Competition prize

Postie's just brought me my prize from the competition on Dewdrop Craftz - thanks so much, Nikki, for such a fab selection.

It's great that, although I've already got some zoomz, I haven't got these colours and I've never seen the Saturn ones before - I'll enjoy using them.

There's a new competition on Dewdrop Craftz, so why not pop on over there and have a look and join in - you might be a lucky winner, like me!

And postie brought me something else very special this morning - my CJ from the group on BF has come back home to me - I'm taking pictures and will be showing soon.
