Challenge me Monday card

Hi back this week with my card for the challenge over on Fantabulous Cricut, pop over and see what else the design team have to share with you.
I have used Plantin Schoolbook and Cricut Design Studio. I love this more than the new Craftroom as it's so easy to use if you don't have the best Internet connection, sorry Cricut but have to speak the truth.
I have also used my embossing folder to create the music notes around the boarder. Not forget this is a shaker card (sorry the photo doesn't show it off to well) which is full of music notes and stars.
I have used one of my stamps to stamp the star with musical note sheet.

Thanks for popping in hope you'll pop back very soon.
Like i said early the challenge this is for is:-

Ally Birthday card

Back today with a little make.

I just thought I would share to card I made for him with you all.
I used some papers from my little stash, so sorry i don't know who it's by. The image is a Mo Manning digi image.
I have coloured the image with my promarkers (which haven't been out for a while !!).

Birthdays come around

Today's make is another challenge card for the Cuttlebug Spot, this week it's Round and Round it goes.
I have used my Cricut to centre and cut the the circle out of a square.
Who couldn't resist it the good ols faithful swiss dots embossing folder (I know it one of my favorite and a must have for us all)
The ballons are made as spinners so they travel around the circle. I have used some crochet thread which I have coloured to match my colour scheme and tied to the balloons. The ribbon has also been coloured to match as well.

WOW - great news

Well how to make a girl very happy after coming back form a long journey for a very sad occasion I received a lovely email to say i had won, yeah little old me won something (happy dance and big smile). I had entered a challenge over on the Cuttlebug spot (triangles) the other week and was most surprised and happy to have been chosen as  the winner (big thanks to the DT team).
Pop over and take a look

Back with a short post for you today.
I've made a couple of banners for my nieces bedrooms.
 I need something to keep my mind distracted as I had some very sad news on Friday. 
My uncle passed away so I wanted a little project to distract me and put a smile
 on someones face.
I had a little womble about and found cuttlebug challenge and felt my little make would fit in just great
I cut the banner on my cricut along with the letters.
These have been inked around the edge and letters put through swiss dots embossing folder.
Ribbon has been threaded through with bows at each joint.
 Not forgetting a bit of bling it just wouldn't be complete without.

Thanks for popping by
