I am so happy today. The creative memories party i went to on Saturday i did splash out and spend money (don't do that much these days as i am now on limited funds ) well i brought a geometric multi-maker punch i am so happy it was delivered today (even happier as i thought that i would have to wait weeks but no only 2 days wow that was quick for a party plan ) Anyways i have made one card today and lots of other things ready though. This card of course was using the multi punch and then i weaved paper strips in and then i added a darcies bee bear matted on yellow and black and since i lined the card in yellow and used the multi punch on the lining i used the punched out pieces to add a little effect to the matting

Pop up card

I love these frog saying stamps by third coast and today i was going through my darcies stamps and found the nappy stamp so i inked it up to it looks like underpants and not nappy and then thought of the wording and went and got my inkadinkado frog stamp and made it into a pop up card. ENJOY

Tools of the trade

Alota rubberstamps were used for the tools and word stamp was darcies rubberstamps

Robot friends

this one was made using bampop robot stamp (one i cut his legs and arms so i could make him sit down ) and cuttlebug for the backgrounds
