I'm a bit tired, went to bed really late (3am) as my OH was working nights so it was an excuse to stay up and craft lol I was woken up 9 by my friend's hubby cos their puppy got into our garden. They are few doors away from us but she pushes in the gate on the bottom but can't get out, I'm glad it's wet out there and I didn't let the bunnys out she chases them non-stop
Ok I stopped being gobby and I get on with my post

Here is my first card what I made for TioT DT and the Theme is "Spring has Sprung" but with a twist you need a moveable part
I bought a bookbinding book and I seen a cool technique and I wanted to give a go, my circle moves round and it's not with brad, in the inside there is an other circle to cover up the mechanizer I forgot to take a pic of it though

Here you can see I can turn it, poor little ant is upside down lol
I used High Hopes image called "Sweet Little Thing" and coloured him with my watercolour pencils. My BP/DP comes from one of my Crafter's Companion Cd what I printed out yrs ago and just was waiting there to be used, I've got way to many scrap what I don't use cos they not organised and I have no idea what I have. The ribbon is from my stash  

The sweet sentiment is a new one came with a Lotv stamp

I just stapled the ribbon on then I undone it and put some seed-beads on it, now that was a bit fidly I can tell you that BUT looks really cool

I'll be entering this card into the fallowing challenges

WOW tons of flowers and being spring mine got a bit too

My 2nd card is my Delicious Doodles DT card and oh boy was I out of my comfort zone with this one. The theme is "Anything Goth" ha-ha-ha no idea which one of my teamies thought about it but thanks for the challenge lol
Well anyway this is what I came up with. I've used "I'm Ba-aack"  and my new Spillbinder die

I made a pic with the flash too so you can see the high lights I put in with my Shakura gel pen. My BP is from my stash I distressed the edges then I scrunched up und with TH distress ink I gave some places a bit more definition. The flower is made out of ribbon then out of 7 little paper flowers I made the centre from the left over black paper

She is sooooooooo scary I wonder what the "Boss" was thinking when she was drawing here lol

This cool WA is from Create with TLC's last club but I'm sure it's in her shop too just pop over to her blog as and brows round there are tons of freebies there too
