Good evening! Firstly I have to say I haven't been the best blogger this week... sorry if I haven't visited you but I really haven't been on the computer much... or done any crafting for that matter! Sometimes we need a little time out!

However... I have done one card... it's for the Wags 'n Whiskers challenge which is "Charming"... the W & W team would like to see some metal on your project. Here's my interpretation...

I've used "Bear Hug" stamp from Wags 'n Whiskers, coloured with Promarkers. I have to say I think she's sweet as a red head! The papers are Basic Grey "Cupcake", the sentiment is part of a Penny Black stamp (You are in my heart & thoughts), ribbon is Papermania and the border is done with my MS punch. The metal elements are the heart charm (from Bunny Zoe's Crafts) and the little paw brads I found in my stash.

I've also used the recipe from Totally Papercrafts Challenge " 3 embellishments (ribbon, charm, brads) , 2 papers and 1 image.

Finally there's a fantastic challenge over at Brenda's blog to make a card with the theme of "Moving"... this can also be interpreted by a moving object on your creation so I've chosen to add this sweet heart charm. The challenge is to celebrate the recent move of Sir Stampalot to larger premises, and they're offering some super prizes!

It's totally freezing here... hope you're all wrapped up warm! Have a cosy evening!
