CMM 90

Hello there and hope your weekend has got of to a good start. I have a really busy few days now as it is Dave's 70th Birthday on Monday.  Tonight we are going out for dinner with his closest friends to celebrate.  Tomorrow there will be 17 of us going out for lunch then coming back home for cake and champagne.  On Monday Dave and I are going to the Inn at Whitewell to spend the night and have a meal.  Whew!!

Over at Card Makin' Mamas we have a new challenge starting and the theme is Mini Cards or Tags.  So you can do either a mini card (smaller than 4.25" x 5.5") or a tag I have done both:

I used the You're A Hoot set from Clearly Besotted, using the matching die to cut the owl out.  Paper is from Sweet Shoppe Design.  Spellbinders Circle die and Ribbon Banner Die, Dienamics Mini Scallop Border Die and Cutting Edge die for the tag.  As you can see the card is 4" square:

We have a fabulous sponsor this month:

Challenges I would like to enter:

QKR Stampede - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes
That's Crafty - Keep It Simple
Crafting By Designs - Anything Goes
Emerald Faeries - Things With Wings

Thank you so much for looking and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Susan - it is a wooden stamp and we have recently found a new site with free P&P the prices look a bit crazy for some of them so be careful - also they come from USA, l ordered 4 stamps then realised l might get stung from customs but the order was split into two packages and no paperwork was included. Thorny affair is on offer.
