Here is today's card that I made for the challenge on Our Creative Corner "10", It is a Christmas card for my stash this year, I used white card for the card and used a pale green Bo bunny designer paper for the background and the corners were cut with a Nellie Snellen corner die I used the 6 x 6" paper stack "A Vintage christmas" from Megs Garden, and a tag from the same pad, I shaded the edges of the card with a dull green ink pad that I have had in my stash for a very long time, I enjoyed making this card

I made this card today from inspiration recieved from Shellyhickox.blogspot.com, she makes beautiful cards!!! I made this card for Simon Says Stamp challenge show a bit of brown. I used white card stock with stamps from tim Holtz "life's possibilities", "lost and found", a tim holtz ticket," SOAR'" and a tim holtz flying clock.I used card paper pad 6-1/2" kaisercraft black and white "Timeless". I used tim holtz distress pad "Vintage Photo" for most of the stamping except the unbrella man, who I stamped in Back, I used Provocraft embossing folder "Diamonds in the rough" and used the vintage photo colour to lightly stain the embossed sections, I cut out the small flags myself from Brown card stock, and printed "Hello", it is a gate fold card as I am trying out new shapes.

lovely cards by ShellyHickox.blogspot.com, where she made a beautiful card with the Sizzex Popup Die. As I am on a limited income I wasn't able to buy this die as by the time I bought the die, the pad and the plates it would have cost over $65. and I did not want to pay that for something I would not use too much, so anyway played around and found a pop up on load of scrap.com website that would pop so here it is. I made the card with black cardstock, and used the embossing folder Tim Holtz Sizzex Steampunk set and coloured it with a silver ink pad, I used the Tim Holtz magnet die "Mini gears", and
Spellbinders "Spritely Sprockets", and the paper I used is from a Kaiser craft 6-1/2" pad,
Black & White Timeless. I used the Tim Holtz
