Just by using this free cute digi image of a girl sitting on a pumpkin?

Well then, just pop over to the Nutcrafters challenge and enter a card - you don't have to use this one, you could use any of their of fabulous digi images, but you have to be quick because entries close at 5pm on Tuesday!

This is my entry, I used up some scraps to punch out the leaves and coloured her with my promarkers, and guess what -the pumpkins were coloured using the orange shade called Pumpkin!!

I've done a bit of Scrappin'

Here's something you don't see from me very often -new pages for my family scrapbook.

I don't often feel in the mood for scrapping, cards are so much quicker and easier to make!

But today I have put together a few pages, they are still works in progress - that's the fun of scrapping, you can always come back and add a few more embellishments!

Another Scottie dog Card!

This is such a cute stamp (free from Quick Cards Magazine), that I'm going to make several similar Christmas cards for my dog loving friends this year.

The Old with the New !

I just love these cute stamps that were free with Quick Cards and Papercraft Essential Magazines this month - and I've teamed them up with old Xmas papers and sentiments from my stash.

They might be last years or even the year befores!

Christmas Is Coming ...

And not only am I making this years Christmas cards, I'm off to book my Christmas Day dinner at a local pub tomorrow.

I know they get booked up quickly and I don't want to miss out, because I hate cooking.

Nitwit Strawberry Mouse Cards

A couple of Good Luck cards made with papers from the cute BERRY PRECIOUS range by NITWIT.

These papers were free from Creative Cardmaking magazine, but I have downloaded several other the Nitwit collections and used them alot!

I've not had much chance at cardmaking as my 96 year old Grandmother has been in hospital following a fall. Until now she has lived alone, but it is now time she went into a care home, so we have been looking around for the right one.

Tres Chic!

I visited Bury St Edmunds yesterday and popped into the Stamp Hut for a few crafting essentials (as you do!). Whilst there I spotted an old edition of Creative Cardmaking magazine that I had missed in the bargain bin and snapped it up.

The free papers were by Cardwork Cards, one of my favourite companies from their Tres Chic range. I just love the hot pink, baby pink and black combo and it certainly lives up to it's name.

None of these cards are birthday cards as I decided again to stock up on other types, so I now have some 'get well soon', 'thinking of you' and 'just because' cards.
