I've made this card using the sketch over on
Friday Sketchers and I'm also entering it into the "Anything goes" challenge over on Stamp Something. I used Stampin' up cardstock and designer paper, My Sweet Pea stamp set and felt pieces, along with twill tape.

A Spoon full of sugar

I stumbled across a blog that I found really inspiring, so I decided to try "casing" a card. This is the blog...It's All About Stamping
I really hope that Wendy doesn't mind me copying her style...

This card also is entry for this weeks challenge over on A Spoon Full of Sugar which is "Thank you cards".
please excuse the wonky pierced dots along the top and bottom!

A great tip for your Hamster cage...

I just thought I'd share this snippet of useful information... my daughter got herself a hamster for christmas, and someone told her that if you put a jam jar inside the cage, the hamster will wee in it! What a brilliant tip - I did just this (I was very sceptical, mind!), and low and behold, the hamster does wee in the jam jar which means that it can be cleaned out every day or two (just the jam jar), so the cage doesn't smell (as they tend to do after a day or two, usually). So, thanks to the person who told her this (not sure who it was - some lady we met at a wedding on New Years Eve), and if you have a hamster... try it... it works!!!

Sketch Saturday

I've finally found some more inspiration to make 2 more cards - yippee!! (It's been lacking for some time now!) Anyway, they have been made using the sketch from Sketch Saturday, and now I can't wait to get back down there and make some more!!!

Stamps used: Born to Shop Inks used: stazon Colouring method: Stampin' Up markers Other Embellishments: glitter flock, mulberry paper
