WOW at Creative Inspirations and a little claire club card make

Good morning Lovelies! How are you today? I hope you are well and happy. I'm feeling a little more organised after buying the mulled wine and mince pies for the school christmas fair and sorting out some gift bags for the secret mums gift stall. I even managed to buy a Christmas cake for the luxury hamper we'll be raffling - and put posters up and secured some more help on the day! All good news!!

There's a new challenge today over at Creative Inspirations cinspirations and we're sponsored by the stamp fairy - that means I got to use one of the fab images of Barry - don't you just love him? Here's my card:




I used an embossalicious grande dots folder for the background along with a memory box border top and bottom and some trees cut from die'sire dies to the left - the sentiment is from LOTV. The image itself has been coloured with promarkers and I added a faux frame using the die as a mask.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I have another card to show you too made from the stamps and cards that I get monthly from the Little Claire stamp club. I kept a few of the card packs and took them with me when I was away over half term as something to do in the evening - this is one of the ones I did:





Hope you have a great wednesday - I'm running this morning then preparing for rainbows this afternoon - we're going to be having fun with shaving foam and inks and also doing some die cutting - should be fun!!! Thanks for dropping by today and for any comments you may leave! I really do appreciate each and every one and look forward to reading what you think!

Big Hugs

Rachel
