I finally managed to get the time for some pics of the Exploding Box cards that I mentioned in an earlier post.
Between knit picking over last minute craft show details and playing waaaayyyyy too much Just Dance with the kids (extremely addictive game) I'm exhausted! So I'm putting both cards into this one post.
This is my Christmas Box card.

I also made a Hello Kitty card. I had a lot of fun with this one.

Bright Christmas.

This card is for this weeks challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. Tag You're It.

My first idea was to have the card be mostly computer generated.

Not bad but I decided it would look better if I used stamps. Doesn't it always?! Plus that bundle of twine..... supposed to be a pom-pom. Apparently, unlike yarn or thread, twine just doesn't fluff out into a pom-pom! Live and learn!
This is the second attempt...

...... I like it better this way.

Over the Edge.

Too long since my last post. I've been getting a lot done, just not taking the time to post it. 3 weeks til the craft show so it's all been rush rush rush. And I made a couple exploding box cards that (in my opinion) turned out great so I was gonna get some pics today and share them but when I opened them up a bunch of the pieces fell off! Apparently my All Purpose Super Heavy Duty Glue should actually be labelled All Purpose Super Heavy Duty Glue*
*only pretends to work on acetate. Will hold tight for 3 days then promptly dissolve.

Tomorrow I will fix them with my always faithful glue gun.
Today I show you my card that I made for,

CAS-ual Fridays and the Champion Medallions challenge at Moxie Fab World.

This card also uses acetate. I've given it a pre-emptive re-gluing.

Thanks for looking,

I Love Kit Kats.

And I love Halloween. We all had a great time trick-or-treating and the kids had a blast. Also, that last sentence shows how hip I'm becoming.... click HERE to see why!
Ok so now it's November. That means we have a new challenge starting at Just Tracy's Crafts!
It's a sketch.

Flip it, rotate it, make a card, make a layout, so many fun options. This month we're sponsored by our very own Linda! She's a Stampin' Up demonstrator so you know the prize is outstanding!

I personally enjoyed this sketch as it has so many elements, I found I had a few ideas for what to do with it but as I needed a little boy's birthday card, this is what I came up with.

A lot of tissue paper and a lot of bright colours.

I hope you'll play along, you have all month!!
