Another quick couple of cards...

Please take a look at my Candy here

Card #1

The first card I am going to show you is a Birthday card I needed to make for my brother-in-law.
How many candles?? 
Well quite a lot really - 65!

Anyway I used the Bubaboo image Candles Set coloured with Promarkers.

The white rectangular card base was matted with turquoise card then layered with some starry DP from my stash, then a topnote shape cut with my Bigshot in the same turquoise card.
Next I added the image and two banners - the words printed on the computer and the '65' gold stickers.

I will link this to the Catch the Bug February AG Challenge

Card #2

Yesterday I was delighted to receive a prize from Lost Coast Designs

Mini cracked Critters...

I couldn't wait to start playing with them so this morning I mounted the stamps on foam
 and just used one to make a triple stamped card - 'Falling Critters'

In triple stamping, three rectangles of card of three sizes are placed on top of each other. Images are then stamped randomly across the three layers. Each card is then matted onto a slightly larger piece of contrasting card and the three parts are layered to gether matching up the pictures.
I added this to a red card blank and then embellished with pearls, bows and googly eyes.

I was also delighted to find I was January winner at Dream In Darkness
I will link this weird little creation at the February Challenge there

Happy Crafting!
