Looky here!

LinkReal eggs (you can tell by how dirty they are) courtesy of hen, hen, hen and chicken (or is it the other way round?). we are going to be able to give away eggs again which is lovely. well done ladies.

I have been a lot less productive recently thanks to my cold migrating into feeling really blah. I'm a lot better now but still very deaf and gungy. Phil and I have solos to sing on Friday and are both hoping madly that our voices will be clear by then.

I have managed to make a few cards and even some layouts but I will save those for another day. Here are some more small square cards - I really love them right now. I've been trying to use up my BG Origins papers and chipboard. I have made quite a few cards with them but have had to put them away now as I can't face the sight of them any more. Just need about 4 more cards and they are officially done with, which will feel good!
(based on a Waltzing Mouse sketch)
Ditto. Both used Imagine That stamps too.
This one has no sketch but uses Waltzing Mouse stamps

OK if you are called Erica or Terry you have to step away now as I made the next card for you. It was my turn to set the Dare for Daring Cardmakers this week. And my card is only just being added right now (blush). As they are getting married soon I thought it would be nice to feature cards with something old, new, yadda yadda on them. The team have done such a fabby job I reckon. Here is my take

Old: the initial cards - also Blue. I have had these knocking around since the Self Addressed kit days. I keep nearly throwing them out as they just take up space but then use them and think "no, they are still good". But I have lost the details of who made them. Also old - ribbon and heart shape ribbon holder
New: Prima Papers - which i chopped up a bit. The cherries are from the co-ordinating sticker set
Borrowed: Can't tell you yet! It is something small that is an added extra to something that will make you go "yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" if you are a scrap booker or card maker but won't make you quite so excited if you are not. Can you guess what it is? To find out more you need to get to Imagine That on 16th July or at the very least, subscribe to the blog for more details!
Flowers, leaves, pins and glass thing (to use its technical name) are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I will do my best to comment on cards this week. The last few weeks life has rather got in the way and I fear it may be the same this week too. If you have participated in the dare - I thank you!
