Finally i have cards that i can post!!! i have been productive on the card front but to some of my blog buds & i want them to receive them before i pop them on my blog.
Well over at Scrap Therapy they have had their April Cybercrop. I only managed to get the card challenge finished after a busy weekend but this was the first time i have played along on this fab forum.
The card challenge was set by Lisa & the challenge was to make a pair of cards that are non themed specific & to use two or more patterned papers on each card. Lisa also wanted us to use something into the mix that we have not used for a while.
The materials i used was Cosmo Cricket pp, Penny Black images, Prima Flowers, Organza Ribbon, Spellbinders Nesties & Shapeabilities, bling & Dimensional Magic.
The thing that i have not used for a while is a non-stamped image. I love my stamps but opted for a Penny Black transfer which i mounted onto acetate & covered with DM for a 3D effect.

Pop over to Scrap Therapy & go check out this great Aussie site which caters for scrappers, cardmakers & altered projects.


Well i thought you would like a little update on our little spikey friends. Minni & Ernie are still shacked up together in the origional cabin & seem to be totally inseperable! I have been spying on the little one's every night & i feel so blessed to beable to witness them & they seem so unphased by me being around.
Everynight before i go to bed i collect Bert & Simones leftovers from dinner (cat meat) & go put it out for the fox in his dish. Well minni & Ernie are quite happy to carry on eating while i do this! obviously i am very gentle & quiet but Minni even let me touch her/him on Friday night. They also seem really playfull too. I have witnessed them nudging each other playfully & they follow each other everywhere. I can also tell Minni from Ernie (apart from her/him being a little smaller). Minni has a patch of very light spikes on her back so that is great for me to tell which is which.
They are really enjoying their food & they come everynight like clockwork to eat.

Can you imagine if they are male & female? how wonderful to have some little hoglets in the summertime!!! i know im just a big old romantic!

Will keep you all posted. Thanks for stopping by. Lots of love & hugs Clare xxx
