It has been a busy few days on my Blog and today is Canberra's 100th birthday so I am trying to limit my computer time (LOL) I have a quick post today, sharing the cards I am teaching at my Card Design Class this week

I love the collage style card  and my first card is created using Penny Black Inc butterfly suite image and added a few extra touches.  The image has been cut out using the Spellbinders A2 Distressed Edges  Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Card Creator and the the Grand Calibur Machine.

The masculine card is created using a set of Hero Arts stamps that my DH got me a couple of years ago and have only just seen ink (shhhh)  I was inspired by a card on Pinterest and will come back and link it as soon as I find what board I pinned it too!  Both cards have Want2Scrap bling - I love the way bling can be used on masculine cards too - even if it is minimal!

These cards are for the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes 
Eclectic Ellapu - Birthdays (card two)
 Gingerloft - The Colour Green
 Glitter n Sparkle - St.Pat`s/Use Green 
Great Impressions - Going Green 
Stamptacular Sunday - To Die For  
Catch The Bug - Theme, Green Thumb 
Card Makin' Mamas - Green 
Creative Corner - Go Green 
Simply Create Too - St Patricks day or use mostly green

I told you this would be a quick post - we are going to make the most of a Public Holiday - but I do know there will be some crafting time a bit later - if you know me you will know that is a given! Thank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!! Your encouragement is such a blessing for me - it makes my day! God bless you!
