Offcuts & Quickutz

This is my card made with the 2Sketches4you sketch, I had in mind what I wanted to achieve (which always helps!) and wanted to use the gorgeous cosmo cricket paper, just love the colours, which as you can see were the inspiration for my card. I have added a close up picture so you can see more detail, like the text on the swirl and the3d effect

I then went on to make some more cards with the offcuts, a good habit to get into!!! And used the smaller offcuts to make another card based on one which I made before using smaller pieces, and that's where the Quickutz comes in handy!

P.s. Blog candy here on Arty Party blog (part of the rules to leave a link)

"Rejoice, Rejoice and again I say Rejoice"

This weeks SALT challenge is 'REJOICE' 'The Bible says to Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS. This is a verse that I keep meditating on as its one of those that pops into your head, but is very hard for your heart to grasp sometimes.When we go through trials, or we can see others suffering, getting to the truth of this verse is vital.It doesn't say Rejoice for the sake of it, it says Rejoice in the LORD, the one who has saved us from the punishment we deserve, the ALMIGHTY one, who LOVES us so much. ' I put my rejoice stamp to good use... I love doing hangings as I have them on display and what better way of reminding me to REJOICE in the LORD always!

One for Jadon!

Happy Birthday to my youngest nephew who is One tomorrow! Here is the card I made for him. I am going to be sneaky and incorporate it into the DCM Wheels challenge 'I'd like you to feature wheels ON your cards, or as part of them. So you could have cars, bikes etc on your card, or maybe you could actually make a card that moves along on some wheels', (sneaky cos I already made the card, and had already made the fathers day ones before I noticed the challenge! so thought I would submit this one anyway)... Hey ho...
