Where did you come from?

Hi Everyone,hope your weekend was good. My Lovely Mum was 70 at the weekend and we went to visit and celebrate with her. We all had lots of fun and laughs. I will share  a couple of the special things I made for  her later in the week!

This year I have decided to try and use the challenges I enter to make cards for my family and friends as I am really poor at letting my creations go!!!

One of my favourite challenge sites is BBTB2 and they have a current challenge to use the caterpillar cut from Walk in my Garden.  I could have gone down the foliage route but decided  on this particular shaped card as it is for a birthday boy this week. We still haven't any snow here yet but we are now waking up to frosty mornings and what little boy doesn't like bugs?

WIMG - caterpillar cut at .75"
Hello Kitty - snowman card  cut at 6"
Twigs embossed
I hand cut the felt as struggled cutting it on the cricut!

I am entering this card over at the following challenges :-
BBTB2 - caterpillar from WIMG
FCCB - Snow Fun - use a snowman or snowflake
Birthday Sundaes - photo inspiration,must use a snowman,(I included blue and green too)
The Cuttlebug Spot - Winter scene to include texture such as felt
Little Scrap Pieces - Anything goes
It's ages since I've managed to enter multiple challenges with one card and you are all my favourite sites! lol

Thanks for stopping by.
I am playing catch up with commenting but have found just a few of my friends that blogger isn't allowing me to comment! Just wanted those of you that I haven't caught up with to know it's not through lack of trying!

Have a great Monday.
