Christmas is coming quickly.

I have just made Gift Tags for our secret santa at work. I thought if I made all the tags, it would help keep secret santa a secret!!

Here's a special card for my special uncle's 90th birthday. I've made this using Tim Holtz "Old Jalopy" die. I hadn't used this die before and I am very happy with the result.

Two posts in one day!!

I was trying to do this card for IBSIC Challenge #54 - colour combination of green, yellow and white.
Was rather busy at the end of last week, so didn't make it, but I was able to finish it today.
I am quite pleased with the effect.

I've embossed Stampin'Up card stock with Craft Concepts Sun Rays embossing folder.

The bird cage is a beautiful die from Marianne Designs and the butterflies are the five largest from the seven Cheery Lyn Mini Dimensional Butterflies with Angel Wings (I didn't use the Angel Wings this time).

Both the greeting and label punch are from Stampin'Up, as are the pearls.

Hope the birthday girl likes it, too!!
Here's a card I've made for Fusion Challenge No 8.

Unusual colour combination but it's turned out very effective.

StampinUp card stock and DSP as well as label punch.

Couture creations Nesting die and Marianne Creatable flower die.

Martha Stewart edge punch.

Bling from my stash.

Another card for the latest Fusion Challenge - No 5

Again I've combined the sketch and the colour challenges - Fusion!!

I've used StampinUp card stock, DSP, punches and greeting stamp.

The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn die - with angel wings!

Today I made this card for Fusion Challenge No 3. My aim was to fulfill both the sketch and the inspiration photo.

I bought the Fancy That Bird on a Wire die and Die-namics Leafy Flourish die at the Sydney Paper Crafts Festival a few weeks ago and this is the first time I have used them - very happy with the results. The punch, greeting and embossing folder are from StampinUp. The flower sticker and card were from my stash.
