Edwin & The Mad Hatter

Good evening peeps,
I've a quick post tonight as it's past bedtime really but I thought I'd just sneak this one in.
Today I have two little cards to share again, I think I'm getting back in my stride with card making again, there's no stopping me now, oh happy days lol.
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - Pion & Graphic 45
Sentiment - Cats Life Press
Tools - MS Scallop Dot border punch, Whimsey snowflake, Nesties
The gorgeous taffeta ribbon I have been hoarding for I don't know how long but I wish I could remember where I bought it as I love it

I'm entering this little card in the following challenges -
Make It Monday - anything goes, Christmas Inspirations - die cuts/punches, Stamptacular - you choose, CRAFT - 1 ribbon, 2 shapes & some glitter, Creative Belli - chunky glitter

Next up is one of the cards I made for my baby boy for his birthday, he does love his cups of tea so when I saw this image I had to buy it as it's perfect for him and it did make him laugh
Ingredients -
Image - The Mad Hatter, Mo Manning, Medium - Copics, Paper - Tim Holtz, Sentiment - Cats Life Press, Stitch stamp - Magnolia, Ribbon - stash
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Bronte & Bella's (Mo's) & My Mum's Craft Shop - inspired by a song (Tea for Two & Two for Tea), Cards 4 Men - make us laugh, Nettie G's Digital Gems - anything but rectangle, Sketch & Stash - sketch, Altered Alice (wk3 chpt8) - something that twinkles or shines, Sweet Stampin' - for men

That was a bit of a whirlwind for me but that means more time tomorrow for blogging :)
Thanks for stopping by
