Jingles in a tangle


I can now start sharing my cards which were in last month's Making Cards magazine. I love using the kits as a topper and had four cards published all using Jingles from Pink Gem. The papers are Craftwork Cards, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and the die is Memory Box. I backed them with aqua glitter card.

I need to find a bit more time for crafting so I have decided not to enter any challenges for a while. Well, I might enter an odd one but not having to link up challenges when I type my blog posts will save me a lot of time. I have no idea how some people find the time to link up 30 or 40 challenges on their posts and that never seems very fair to me either.  I will still be posting and commenting on blogs every day though. Thanks for your continued visits especially those of you who take the time to comment.

I am at the hospital all day today with my craft stall so I hope people are in Christmas present and card buying mood today. When I get home I will be putting in my order for the new vintage boy stamps from LOTV as the rubber stamps are launching today along with the three cute woodland animal stamps.

Hi Marianne, what a lovely card, such a sweet image and I love the bauble dies. Beautiful colours and papers.
I know what you mean about the challenges, it takes ages, I only do a couple and again only if the theme is a card I can use, as I don't sell my cards I've got tons just lying in my box taking up space.
Hope the stall at the hospital was good, Kate x

Erika said...

I don't seem to get much time to do challenges either, it takes me all my time to keep my blog going, with work, family and the house.
I'm glad I am not alone.

Loving your card, great image, it reminds me so much of me trying to sort the lights at Christmas, no one else will do it.
Great papers and layering too.

Hugs Erika. x

I bought the mag today but not had time to look at it yet. A brilliant fun image and a great card. Challenges!! Never have the time to do all the linking etc. I'd rather be in my craft room making stock for the next craft fair! Hope you had a good day at the hospital and sold heaps of your pretty goodies. Hugs, Carol S.xx
