'One Stop Craft Challenge'. The image is a Penny Black stamp - I love these I think they are brilliant - my sense of humour! Stamped with Stazon, I coloured it with Marvy le Plume pens and chalked around the edges. The papers are My Mind's Eye (free with a crafting mag). The scallop edge is punched with an EK Success border punch. The flowers were stamped and punched with a MS punch onto the dotty paper using black Stazon and I added a jewel to the centres. I used grosgrain ribbon to decorated the scallop edge and stamped the happy birthday sentiment. Hope you like it!

Brenda's blog- what a great prize there is to be had donated by Sir Stampalot (will keep my fingers crossed). The card I've made for my son who's moving in with his girlfriend at the end of this month. I cut the shape with my Cricut (Zooballoo cartridge). Covered it with brick effect craft paper that my husband bought years ago when he thought it would be a good idea to make doll's houses - he's never got round to it but the paper was useful lol. Roof tiles I made using thick paper which I ran through a ribbler and cut tiles, a bit time consuming but it had the desired effect. I used ribbon for the curtains and covered the windows with acetate to represent glass. The window boxes where cut out of terracotta coloured card. I made flowers with Flowersoft and punched out some fern like foliage. Cut out a door shape from red card, made a letter box and used peel off numbers and a brad for the handle. The sentiment was computer generated and I cut out a frame with my Cricut to edge it.

'Nitwit Collections'. The image is 'Tilda with Hearts' stamped onto white card. I masked her and stamped the background with Art Impressions Swirls stamp in VersaColor Bisque. This was then mounted onto a piece of red card and cut to mirror the white. Tilda is coloured using Copics. I punched a border with a Martha Stewart border punch 'Valentine Hearts' and wrapped red satin ribbon around it and finished it with a bow. The roses I made using 'Brenda's' fab tutorial and punched out leaves which I then inked with various shades of greens. I stamped the heart and cut around it then mounted it onto a piece of red card and trimmed to shape. I inked all edges with a Brilliance ink pad in 'Poppy' and stamped the sentiment in the same colour. Hope you like it!
