Allsorts week 465 - All About Pets

It is the turn of our lovely Brenda to host this week challenge and she has chosen the theme of 
All about Pets
As it is National Pet awareness week and also R.S.P.C.A. week and World Veterinary Day.

Here are this weeks prizes.
First up is this Woodware stamp
and three smaller stamps as the second prize.

Here is my card

The image is from Hobby House which I fussy cut, really nervous trying this but quite pleased with the result.
I chose goldfish as it was the only pet my Daughters were allowed to have and the same with the Grandsons, except the Grandsons fish had to be kept at our house. Unfortunately they are now swimming in the great big Ocean in the sky.
It reminds me of Ethans face coming out of the shop carrying the goldfish.
I think we got it from PetsRus, something like that any way. Talk about third degree questioning it was unbelievable.

Thank you all for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave, have a great week.
Don't know about you but we have snow forecast for next week, can you Adam and Eve it.

Rudolph Day - April 2018

These RD days seem to come round so very quickly but at least the cards are mounting up, in fact I will have to stop making five of everyone as I will have too many,I did make five of these but only showing one, they are all the same, trust me,  my i-cloud is getting pretty full

The snowflake stamp is an Hero Arts wood block stamp from 2003
The sentiment is SU
A turquoise glitter card for the backing
and some turquoise glitter added to the image.
Went for the CAS or plain and simple design for this card and it does look quite good IRL.

Allsorts 462 - Be there or be square

Good Morning, hope you all had a good Easter.
It is my turn to host the challenge over at Allsorts this week. There is no catch in the title of this challenge I just used a very old saying that was popular in my late teens... a very long time ago.

Be there, or be square.
Basically I would like to see square cards, images and sentiments so no circles, or rectangles or fancy shapes.

This is the prize for this week.

This is my card.
I have used a really lovely stamp set from Magenta.
It is called Puzzle Sets.

I also made this card 
I have used the Penny Black image Garden Poems just because I haven't used it for ages.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.
Have a great week.
