New Cards.

I have been finding it hard to get on here lately as with schoolwork and work have been flat. Added to that my computer keeps dropping out. The having trouble getting to re-start it. Finally came on this morning so thought I better jump on and try and upload a few cards I've made lately.
This is a card I cased off another blog, I apologise I can't remember who's, but if I find it again I'll come back and put it in. This is one of those surprise "pop/pull up" cards, I just had to try it. I did the outside with my cuttlebug and the images with the SU froggy friends set. I ummed and aahed over this set, but decided to get it with my demo set instead of the Loads of Love, and am really glad I did. Further down I will show some more I made with it, but find below what happens when you pull the tag:-
I love it, only thing was the pop up was only done on really thin card. Next time I will know to do it on thick stuff. Here is another using this set.
I don't mind this one but was a bit heavy handed with the ink around the edge of the circle. Will have to sponge instead of swiping!
Here is another card using the festive favourites set. The paper was scraps from the xmas paper we have on special at the moment. Details earlier in my blog. We still have a couple of weeks for this paper, but after that it will no longer be available. I love it and it makes card making so much easier. I think I will have to grab a couple more packets before it finishes to keep in my stash. Back to the card, the images were coloured using stamping up pastels then I used some liquid applique for the snow, which doesn't show really well in this photo. The ribbon makes it, but only had this little bit, so will have to get more to whip up some more cards, for christmas. Christmas is coming so quick. I think it is only 39 more days!

Jays teacher Megan has a thing going for christmas, where each year they have to set a theme, than only spend up to the value of only $15 on a gift in that theme. This year it was fruit, so she asked me if I had any ideas! This is what I came up with.
Not a great photo, but it gives the general idea.
The box contains the dry makings for fruit and nut muffins, all you have to do is add margarine and eggs. Behind it is a mini muffin tin, then a xmas teatowel and a wooden spoon. The recipe is on a hanging xmas tree card. The image on it is from SU It's Snow Time and you can't see it very well but the red and green card has been stamped with a flourish from the Scribble this set. Here is a couple of close ups.

Hope this gives a better idea! I loved it and wouldn't say I'd be dissapointed getting one. Megan loved it. I made another one for her using fruit flavoured teas, but with no stamping, am yet to take a photo. I think I better save this and get it on before I lose the lot!

I love the unfrogettable cards. I have that set, coveted actually and once I got it I have issues using it. Very cute!
