Wild things!

Firstly I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has visited my blog and especially those who have left such fab comments. It's great to know who's stopping by and although I haven't been able to return the favour cause of a hectic week, I plan on setting aside some blog reading time as soon as I can!

This weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge was set by the wonderful Kathy, to use animals on your card, but not just iddy diddy ones, big beastly ones!

I made a cute little dinosaur card using my scallop scissors, (surprise surprise there eh!) K&Co paper, ink and a 2 Peas Dingbat font called boys will be boys. If you want to know how to do the fancy bow on the right hand side I've done a tutorial for the Wedding Crafter and all the step by step instructions are there.


I forgot to share my Santas little extra helper card the other day too. Its made in a similar way, DCWV Christmas 6x6 paper, ribbon and the Santa, with the oh so cute hat, it's one letter from the 2Peas Santa dingbat, printed on red card, cut out by hand and decorated the hat with white EP.

OOh Rhi hehe thats tooooo cute! I have to say you inspired me to get out my scissors! I bought a huge pack at Hobby craft years ago with loads of different shapes that I hardly used! Although I thing I need a chunkier pair of scallop shapes ones!

The card is tooooo cute!

Fabby card Rhi - love the different fold style and the 'carry over' of the pp to the inside, too. Your colouring of the dino looks great!
