That is the noise I heard from the study at 12:30; 4:40: 5:30 and 6:35 this morning.
Normally I can ignore it but that is because Phil gets up and tells our DEAR dog to be quiet. He is away for 3 days and so I have to be the disciplinarian. But I needs my sleeps. So I am v. grumpy this afternoon. I wasn't helped by photoshop crashing on me this morning as I was trying to get my card edited for the Little Extra on Daring Cardmakers today. Its all fine now though.
the theme is -oh so juicy - make a card using lemon or orange toned colours. So I did! And I also used two of my brand new cuttlebug embossing folders and dies. You won't thank me for sharing them as they are just too lovely and you will want to buy them too.
Build a flower
Swiss Dot
and I also bought perfect paisley and number collage.
All very reasonably priced from my wonderful local craft shop Imagine That

Its a cream square card; Stamping Up ribbon; Scrapworks Ethan Kate and American Crafts Bookshelf papers

I made this layout on Sunday.

It is honestly square. I have tried putting layouts on walls, between my feet, everything but I still canna get them straight. Its a simple one. Piggy tales papers, circle punches, felt thickers and oodles of doodles

Aww Lythan, I’m sorry to hear that Lucky is giving you sleepless nights again; I thought she was beginning to settle down. Guess she must be missing her dad!

Love you card, so bright and sunny; which I guess is to be expected when you’re using yellow and Orange.

I didn’t realise there were ‘new’ embossing folders. Think I need to shop!

Lovely card, I love, love, love cuttlebug embossing folders! I can never get stuff straight either. Everything is always 'wonky'. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog.

I love your sunny flower card, reminds me of juicy oranges and lemons. I love CB folders too, just ordered a couple of the new ones today....was tempted by the flower die cutter you used and thought I didn't need it...now I am not so sure!
