Crafty birthday!

Hi all!
I've had a busy day or two (and weekend) and haven't made alot this week except this card, which I'm entering into a competition over at Crafters Companion for their 11th birthday celebrations!
The company labelling/logo is purple so that's the colour I've used to make this birthday card.
Along with die-cutting, stamping and heat embossing, I've incorporated photography with extra light to highlight the card better! In other words, I used a table lamp without the lampshade to give brighter light when capturing the image (which I don't usually bother with!) and I think it worked!
Something I'll have to do more often methinks.

So, here's my entry into the comp :

It's a tent-fold base with a large aperture in the front.

Hope you like it and I hope Crafters Companion do too!

Have a great week, crafty peeps!

Hi all!
Here's a link to the post on Cardmaking and Papercrafts' blog where I won the "baking" challenge!

Spooky Starts Early!!!

Hi all!
Today I have a couple of spooky (!) hallowe'en cards for you!
They are both intended for the Hallowe'en card challenge at Cardmaking and papercraft mag.

The first is a stepper card and I've used the Graphic 45 Rare Oddities collection, with other little bits n bobs from my stash!

This is my "Grown-up" card!

My second is my "fun" card!
I used different papers to create the two pumpkins ( spot the mini one hanging down the side!)

The background is actually red but showing up as pink on here! The card papers are black and orange.

Well, that's my lot for today.
I've been to the GP this morning and had my flu jab - ouch! This afternoon I'm off to weigh-in at Chubby-Club (Slimming World!!!) so wish me luck as I don't think I've done any weight losing this week!!!
