Small cards (6x3in) made with Banana Frog stamps (whirligig, pharmacy, joe iv, and scribble flowers) and on the top card a panel (mmmm swiss dots card stock from Bazzill) cut with my 'Slice' machine. Got to work on the spacing of the 'happy' on the bottom card - it got a bit lost in the background pattern...
a couple of simple tags that I was playing with while making my Banana Frog 'Project of the day' this month.... I was going to include the green tag but at the time it lacked 'something' and then a week or so later that 'something' arrived in the form of my new Martha Stewart border punch - see close-up... mmmm nice - I like that a lot - prepare for it to be on LOTS of my layouts, cards etc lol.

I really didn't want to make yet another horrible - but right - decision like this again so soon but yesterday we had to have Fredd put to sleep. I'd had him for almost 14 years and a lot's happened in that time and he purred (loudly!) through most of it. He was such an adorable cat. So sad.

It was ssssoooooooooooooooo sad - very understated and nicely done but oooooooooh sooooo sad! I blubbed.. a lot! Fantastic TV.
I also finished watching 'The Devil's Whore' from before christmas - anyone who didn't see that should watch it - brilliant series - I watched it and then immediately wanted to watch it again!
I watch recorded programmes first thing in the morning with my breakfast to ease myself into the day - not sure Devils Whore was such a good choice - slightly too much blood, gore and beheadings for 7.30 in the morning!

Here are a few sneak peeks of my classes....
Oops, they're all looking a bit pink (and green) aren't they - there are other colour choices planned - honest!
Part of my New Year Resolutions (which weren't many) was to not use white as a card base - broaden out into other colours.... maybe I should include 'do not use pink & green' in those plans. :o)

At least I can say that now without chuckling to myself and grinning like a cheshire cat! (M said I was randomly chuckling to myself during the drive to see friends yesterday evening! he'd ask 'banana frog?' and I'd chuckle again! lol)
Am very excited and looking forward to what's in store... Am chuffed!!

Look how nice/interesting the cut pieces start to become once they've been fed through the cuttlebug (bottom right and top right pieces), or stamped on - 'button' top left, or hand embellished - '2008'.. oooooh the possibilities...... and while you're looking could I draw your attention to the GORGEOUS dots paper (frame, centre of pic) (from Bazzill I think) - how lovely is that paper!
The machine has its limits - only cuts up to 4inches, and only through thin media (no chipboard) but its really portable, and for anything thicker - there's the Cuttlebug, and anything bigger there's the Cricut or Silhouette.. definitely filling a hole in the die-cut market...
I'm a happy little crafter!! (and for more reasons than just receiving a 'Slice' - more about that tomorrow!!)
