Rogue Redheads and Craft Room Challenges.......

Hi, its been a hectic few days, but managed to finish two projects for two challenges.  The first one is for Rogue Redheads who are asking for DieCut Divas!!




Apologise for the photos but it is really dark and wet here today.  The Rogue Redhead stamps I used are from the Carnival Dreams plate, not usually used for a Christmas card, but this one is for my dear hubby.
To be honest I don't usually make him one, so hope this will be a nice surprise........

The large tag below is for the Craft Room Challenge - Birds



Using various stamps including Sam Poole and Keepsake Craft, the bird stamp was a gift from Kevin McCrafty  a couple of years ago,  a terrific cardmaker.  I chose the words because I thought the bird was testing the water (so to speak) one foot in and one foot out.........which pretty much describes me.

My Gelli plate arrived but am not allowed to use it until 31 October (yep am a Halloween child), in the meantime have been watching a lot of video's on UTube, making copious notes in a book ready for the big day.

Have a great week and will catch up with you shortly to see what you have been up to.
Take care, hugs Annette x

Oohh...I had my Gelli plate for my birthday and had to wait to use it, knowing it was in the house was torture !! I spend hours browsing u-tube, blog sites and making notes, and end up not having time to play !! I love your tag, great bright colours and the sentiment and bird go together perfectly !
