CCT Cute Critters

This week's theme at CCT is Cute Critters a perfect theme for me as I love cute stamps. I made this card for my daughter's birthday using the Mama Elephant The Dog's Woof stamp and die set. I coloured the images with Copics and added clear Wink of Stella to the balloons and hats. The sentiment is from the Party Animals stamp set by Lawn Fawn.

We had a lovely few days in Budapest and managed to do lots of sightseeing even though it was very cold.

The sentiment is from a set by Autumn Leaves which I have had for many years.

CCT Anything Goes

I hope you had a good Christmas and got lots of lovely presents. The theme at CCT this week is Anything Goes. I have made a couple of gift card holders for my nieces.  The cards are made with the recently released Lawn Fawn Woodland Critter Huggers and Stitched Gift Card Pocket dies. I love these critters they are so cute and easy to make. I'm looking forward to having a play with them in the new year to see what other animals I can come up with. The cardstock is also Lawn Fawn.

Happy New Year x
