Cornwall is so lovely. Beautiful countryside, peace and quiet. We spent a few days just outside Liskeard with friends in a log cabin. Nice and rustic with a hot tub for chilling in the evenings all washed down with a glass of wine. We visited Port Issac, Padstow, Polperro and Looe, enjoyed some great lunches, pasties and of course cream teas. Well, I didn't because I don't like clotted cream!!

Less is More - Stars

Why is it that things happen in 3's. 1) leaky radiator pipe, 2) washing machine wouldn't spin and 3) some shoes I ordered were awful!! Thankfully I have a hubby that's good at fixing things, so everything is working now. But I had to send the shoes back :)

I haven't joined in over at Less is More for ages. The theme this week is stars, so here's my card for the challenge. Checkout the blog to see everyone's fantastic designs.

Materials used - White card stock, Cricut plus George, Echo Park Summer Days paper pad, Onefourzero stamp, Glitter and Star gems.

The Cuttlebug Spot is back

Tuesday, 1 November 2011

I can't believe we've had a 6 month break, but it's great to be back playing along with a my Cuttlebug Spot friends. The challenges will now be every 2 weeks and we're going to add some Cricut and stamping to our projects. For our first card, it's Anything Goes. So with Christmas coming up, I thought I'd share these little cards I made with a cute little stamp I bought from a friend. I was going to paper piece the mouse and bauble, but it was so fiddly, I decided to colour with my Promarkers. At Christmas I have so many cards to make, that I kept the layout the same, but just used whatever papers and ribbon I had to hand.

Christmas Mouse

Materials used - 4" square card blanks, Cuttlebug plus Sizzix Phrases, Wishes & Kisses and Snowflakes texture plates, Sizzix Snowflakes embossing folder, Stampendous Max Bobble stamp, Sizzix Oval die, Assorted Promarkers, Papers and ribbon from my stash, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Woodware Tiny Phrases clear stamp and Glitter.
