This is a landscape version of my leftovers card. This time I cheated as I cut up full sheets of PaperArtsy paper! The trees are from Blonde Moments. Normally I would add some bling, but the colours make it a nice card for a man - possibly my hubby. He doesn't read my blog so he won't know!

Over the years I have trained myself not to keep every scrap of paper -afte all I have enough full size sheets to insulate a house - LOL! But when I have a few papers that go together the old habit comes back. Here I have cut the pieces 1 7/8" square and inked the edges with marmalade distress inks, pulling the colour onto the paper to give a nice border.
Whatever happened to my counter? It was merrily counting a few hundred hits and then it jumped to 7000 and then 12000. Can't flatter myself that it's real and can't remember my password to reset it either!

Here are a couple of quick Christmas cards. Well they would be quick if I didn't faff about so much ;-) hahaha!
The first uses Blonde Moments trees and word stamps, a lovely pearlescent embossed green card and my new Waltzing Mouse frame. The frame works with nestabilities, but here I just cut it out, mounted it onto pearlescent paper and cut that out a touch bigger.
The Tilda card is my attempt to add a bit more to a card - usually I will colour in and stick the image to a smaller square card with no embelishments. It's not easy to see on here but I stamped the red card with little stars.
Now I must stop playing Cafe World on FaceBook and go and do some real cooking...

Here are my two cards. They work so well with this layout that I think it will become one of my favorites.

Thanks to the lovely Neet for my friends award and now I have the difficult task of choosing just six blogs.
I would like to nominate the following lovely people. Why not spend some time browsing their lovely art work for ideas and inspiration.
In honour of National Card Day I decided to get my finger out and use up some of the lovely stuff covering my desk.
Last here is a photo of my son with his new puppy Rosie. he's just back from honeymoon so we all went out for an Indian meal and now I am too stuffed to move!
