late night blogging...

Hello crafty friends!
I've got a card to share combining TSG116 (I'm a first time player, I found a link and stunning card for this challenge at Chupa's blog) and...

also the sketch #35 from Cardabilities (such a great site, pop over for some inspiration!)

Oh... almost posted without adding my cards... I think it's almost bedtime hehe
here it is :)

here is a close up of the awesome Cosmo Cricket Upcycle mini deck paper I used.

And I also made this fun card using Crate Paper - neighbourhood 6x6 paper pad following the new sketch #3 over at Card and a Half. Helen has a HUGE prize lined up... pop over and check it out!

 Before I go I'd like to share my DT card for Sketch #123 over at ICS this week, we have a prize sponsored by Some Odd Girl... great inspiration on the blog, we would love to see what you can do with the same sketch!

My accordion flower card. Little bit off centre lol. Got myself a cheap hot glue gun in k-mart today as double sided tape didn't hold this one together for long.

And a shout out to say if you haven't visited The Stamp Spot blog this month you may not have heard we have a new monthly challenge! For July we challenge you to use the quilt below as inspiration... the best part? Michelle is offering a $20 store voucher for the winner!!

teal & orange colour kits

Quickly stopping by to share some cards created for Michelle over at The Stamp Spot online store. She recently sent me a heap of teal and orange goodies as she is sorting out some paper craft kits for the store... sounds exciting doesn't it!

I used Iwona's @ Random acts of Creativity sketch for inspiration for this card, she shares a weekly sketch for you to play along with... Sketchbook Saturday it is called :)

Anyway here are 3 of the cards I have made so far, and if your interested in finding out more about the kits please email Michelle thru The Stamp Spot as she hasn't got them in store yet...  her new grandchild is keeping her occupied!
They are great value for money and would make fantastic gifts for the young or beginner card maker/scrap booker.
Well that's for stopping by, hope to see you back here tomorrow!
