CCC Week 31 - Its a Celebration

Happy Tuesday morning to you all. Can you believe its week 31 already on the Creativve Card Crew Challenge? and this week we want to see you "Celebration" cards. Interpret this however you wish. I decided to go for halloween, as it is fast approaching, and i had some lovely papers downloaded from the Forest Friends kit at the Creative Cottage, that seemed perfectly fitting! along with this lovely halloween stamp sent to me by my lovely friend Shirley. Its the first time ive had chance to use it, but im loving this adorable tilda and will be using her again very soon.

Here are some more of the downloads from the Forest Friends kit, aren't they just adorable. I cut up the main image sheet to make the small tiles on the left hand side that i glossy accented.
Also glossy accents on the tree baubles.

As you all know i have not been feeling too well lately, due to a headcold and also a lot of personal problems that have come to test us. Because of this my crafting time has been reduced as has my blogging time. I want to thank everyone who has emailed me or left comments, they mean so very much, i love you all!
Crafting is a great release for me, and i have made a couple of quick cards over the last week again, some using some images again that my daughter Jasmine has coloured for me. Hope you like them.

I just adore these happy hopper images, i would love my children to pull me about in one of these!

I am a huge fan of the delightful hanglar images, just wish i was able to get my hands on more of these beauties. A very special friend sent me this image, you know who you are, thank you.

You probably can all tell how much i am loving the adorable Lili of the Valley die cut images, perfect for those quickie cards!
Well i hope to be back later with some more cards, hope you have a great afternoon. Its my daughters birthday today, she is 11 years old. Where did the last 11 years go????? my baby is no longer a baby, i am very proud of her, she is a very thoughtful, beautiful young lady. Happy birthday Princess!
Hugs to you all Linda x
