I totally forgot it was WOYWW today, chemobrain strikes again!  On my little worktrays on my bed today we cuttlebug (you can tell it has been used a teeny tiny bit huh!) and some die cuts for a card I've been asked to make.  I got these lovely dies from my good friend Gill - thanks Gill - ideal for so many cards I have jiggling around in my head amongst the cobwebs and the tumbleweek!!!
This card is for a Baby Shower and it was to be A4 in size.  I don't make many A4 cards, and of course all the embellies are made for smaller cards, so my cobwebs and tumbleweed got a right shaking up I can tell you!

I drew up a few ideas and sent them to my friends daughter and she chose the colour scheme she liked and the rest is up to me.  Of course, I'll show you the finished product on my blog soon! 

One last thing - does anyone have any House Mouse stamps that have toothbrushes or floss on them???  If you do could you please leave me a comment or email me?  Many many thanking yous!

Happy WOYWW everyone!

Looks like yu are enjoying crafting. And don't mind the tumbleweed. It's a rollercoaster for the spiders living on the cobwebs! !!

I love Alison's comment above me!! So true. Good luck with the A4 card, it's always interesting trying to upscale things, you seem to be coping admirably!
Glad the bit and pieces got there ok :)
Hugs, LLJ 44 xx

I thought after one cut with my Big Kick I needed new pads until someone told me they last a long time. I freak out when the kids us it and bend the pads a little (smiles) Tamika #126

Wow your bug certainly has been used. I read somewhere about turning the plates over every so many uses to help stop them from bowing/bending. Hope you find the HM stamps you want. Have a good week. Take care Zo xx 76

Tumbleweed s, huh? Yea I've been there. Sending well wishes. That's a much loved Cuttlebug! My top cutting plate is almost as bent. There's no way to keep them flat either . Turning them over only works for awhile. Happy WOYWW! Nan 28

Wow. It certainly takes a bit of thinking about to fill an A4 card. Don't think I've ever tried one that big. Don't worry about the tumbleweed. It usually settles and puts down roots again! Your cuttlebug has certainly taken a beating but it still works.
Thanks for dropping by my blog. Sorry I am a bit late doing the rounds this week. Kate x #71
