Cards and Winter Gloves!

I am just sharing a couple of cards today.  The first one is one I did for my guest designer spot with Scrapology in January.  I was sure I had put this up on my blog but I am obviously going crazy because I hadn't!!  We had a love is... theme and the sponsor was Crafty Ribbons so we used some ribbons from there.
I kept my card quite clean and simple and had some fun with my edge punches :)


My second card was done for the Bo Bunny blog for a focus on the stunning Enchanted range!  I chose to do a birthday card for my hubby :)

Totally random but we had lots of snow on Saturday and the kids were out playing in it the whole day today so they had each gone through 2 pairs of very wet gloves so I went to go and find them another pair in their drawers and this is what I found... 

 Now seriously there was not one matching set of gloves in their drawers!  What happens to all the other gloves, are they all off  living in some invisible land with all the lost socks of the world?  My kids end up going through at least 4 sets each through winter, although if I think about it that is probably all my youngest as my eldest son does not really tend to wear gloves except in the snow so my youngest son nicks all of his when he can't find his own.  So I do know who the main culprit is :)

My box full of all the new amazingly gorgeous Bo Bunny products arrived this week and my oh my is it all just totally beautiful, I can't wait to get stuck into it all!  I just have a couple of commissions to finish and then I can play with all the new goodies! :) :) :)

I love the "Knight" card as will he! You'll have to use the gloves on your layouts!

That top card is my favourite - very striking. Smiled at the gloves: send 'em out in non-matching pairs!

LOL at the gloves - you need to put them on tape and thread them through their coats - they will be so embarrassed they will never lose them again LOL!!!!!

Two adorable cards xx

lol! our glove draw is similar and I have a odd sock box too.

Great cards i thought the first one was embossed at first - nice way to use those punches.

I LOVE the card you did for Scrapology - so elegant and stylish! Such a funny story about the gloves, though I doubt you think so! :lol:

I love the black and white card you made your husband. My kids lose gloves too, so I just got in the habit of stocking up when they go on sale. What I want to know, is why is it always the right glove that they lose. At least if they lost both equally, then they could wear mismatched pairs.

Hahaha! No gloves here but we have that same problem with socks!! Wow I love your cards - especially the tone on tone first one...Now on the MME stuff I certainly couldn't afford it all but I did get a little bit of each range, just posted the pics from the shops website!

Oh Carin your cards are fantastic. I love the way you've used your edge punch on the top card so it looks embossed. That is really stunning. Hugs xox
