There seems to be a lot of metal art around at the moment and of course I just had to have a go. Have seen some fabulous works of art on blogs, and been sorely tempted to get the tools, especially as my Angel friends, you know who you are, are playing and coming up with some fab creations. We never want to be left out now, do we, but have reined myself in and just purchased some of the metal sheets, inked with alcohol inks, run through an embossing folder on my cuttlebug and used it as a background on a card. Easy and a bit of a cheat, I know, but whats a girl to do without any tools! Here it is.

I happen to have been off work for the last couple of days as my daughter has been quite unwell with a nasty cold and ear infection, so rather than sit on my bum and watch her sleep on the sofa this afternoon I got out my stash and completed a couple of challenges. If you love Sugar Nellie stamps please take a peak at http://sugarbowlblog.blogspot.com/ and join in the challenge which is THREE, papers, buttons, brads or whatever takes your fancy but it must be three. Here's what I have done this afternoon using my Cosmo Cricket stash, which I have to say I have not used, and there's sooooo many goodies in it that I spent a while oooooing and aaarrrrhing over it.

Here's another one I got done in my crafty session, I have seen some gorgeous cards made with Shabby flowers so thought I'd have a go. Thought mine looked a bit too shabby but when I put them together and completed the card am quite pleased with the result, also covered the challenge at http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/ which is spots or circles. Thankyou for looking.
Have not had much time to craft since before Christmas, but got myself settled for a good session as I had a few cards to make and one was for a friend who wanted a wedding card which also covers the above challenge for this week which is favourite colour. Now I find this very difficult as my favourite colour changes with my mood but am partial to shades of purple and have tried some of the new decoupage in the Forever Friends range, just happened to buy a couple of new stamps too! If you like this range have a peek at the new challenge blog http://www.foreverfriendschallengeblog.blogspot.com/
