Tuesday Twitters

Hi, I've had a lovely day playing in my craft room!
This weeks Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge is "Black". Taking me out of my comfort zone and a challenge in more ways than one. Though I've found a way to use the Platinum redit Card Charm from my box of goodies. The easle card was cut using Grand Lables one and my Grand Calibur. The tall DL card saw me playing with faux photo lots of different ideas. Have a look and, hopefully you will be inspired!
First up is "All is not lost" from Funky Kits. The frame is a Bigz die. Papers from Papermania. I made the button embellishment.

 Next up is 5th Avenue, also from Funky Kits. Card from my stash, charm from Al's crafts (Cokermouth). Heart button embellishments from a pack available in Dunelm.

Well, that's all for today. See you tomorrow.

Having a really bad time. Yesterday I had to take my youngest Shih Tzu, Holly, to the vet yesterday. She had a cist on her front leg, which erupted. Today, I've had to take Holly's mum Cindy, to the vet. They've kept Cindy in to do tests and a scan. Don't know what the problem is..either a damaged back or something wrong with her womb. Sat waiting for vet to ring....

Never the less, here are the projects I've completed..
This is a tag top card from Crafts U Print
and I made for a lovely couple who are neighbours
This is another card from Crafts U Print...a lovely envelope/tag card on a stand.

This is my 2nd entry for the "Snow" challenge on Faebooks Sugar Nellie group.
I used reverse stamping technique, for this one. Stamp is "Snow Buddies" from Funky Kits

 This is my 2nd entry for the"Snow" challenge on FBook Sugar Nellie group. Stamp is Santa with Lantern, from Funky Kits
Well, that's it from me for today, off to wait for Vets phonecall.

.This is my last one for today!!Honest!!

This is the message inside the card
