I have been having a little play around with paper cutting recently - that's with a scalpel, not my wonderful eclips. 
 I cut the one above for my brother's birthday - he has lots of Queens on his walls! 
And this one is a Paper Panda design, but I did cut it and am quite pleased with how it turned out!
Thanks for popping by and don't forget our Aud Sentiments blog hop!

Aud Sentiments Happy Birthday

Wow!  Three years old!!!  Seriously, who can imagine that?

Now, hopefully, you have arrived to me from Mel's blog - wasn't her creation gorgeous?  Phew, hard act to follow!....

If you didn't come here from Mel, then why not pop over to AudSentiments and find out all the information about our birthday celebrations?

So here is my card....the image was from My Heart Pieces....and I cut out the frame and lace edge with sizzix eclips machine - gotta love that!  The cut files were from Lettering Delights (oblong frame) and SVG Cuts (crochet edging).  

Regulation close up of image!  I did enjoy colouring this one - just such a gorgeous image! 

Now, you are on your way again - short but sweet visit!  Your next stop is Sandra's blog....WAIT!!!  Don't forget to leave me a comment to be in with a chance of the prize!  .....Ok, now you can go hop along! 

thanks so much for popping by....Ruthie x

Aud Sentiments - for a guy!

I know, I know...bad blogger, naughty blogger!!!!  I just seem to be really busy at the moment - have taken on a new horse, learning sign language,  started craft club at work, mum, full time work etc etc etc.  Mad!  AND those are all just excuses really because I am pretty certain I could squeeze the crafting in if I want to!  MOJO, where are you????

I couldn't refuse the chance to join in with this challenge though!  I LOVE Bugaboo!  The challenge over at AudSentiments is to make something for a guy and include a sentiment.

 I wanted to showcase the images completely!  BUT I was also aware that posting them on my blog as individual cards might allow the images to be copied.  So, I just took the pics as you see them.  Each of them use different images and I just wanted some quick and easy cards as standbys!  I quite like them uncoloured - I think it shows just how easy it is to use Bugaboo images, no fuss, no bother!  

Anyhow - thanks for not deserting me completely and popping by!  I have been doing some papercutting, so will post up images for that in a while!
