I have been really busy.........

You know when things just need to be done? So you do them, then your Camera packs up, as the batteries are flat because Middlest has taken the charger to College with him for 2 weeks, gggrrrrrrr! I was not a happy Bunny I can tell you!!
I have done LOADS of cards, but most of it is either for Challenges, or TOP SECRET Squirrel stuff, so cant be shown.....................but the Camera is home now so I have a couple of cards I can show.....
 These are from the Debbees Cd 26 Crosses, and again are Easter Cards. This one is using images and Backing paper from the Crosses 10 folder. I used the sheet of toppers, and backing paper to create a simple Waterfall card. The only Embellishments were some Yellow and Green Glitter on some red DST top and Bottom, and a piece of Yellow Organza ribbon  for the tag.

Another card from the same folder, and papers, but this time decoupaged, from the decoupage sheet.............
 I decided to use an Octagonal Easel shape for this card, and trimmed the papers to fit the top and base. The two papers are slightly different, the same design, but one is Kaleidoscoped, and one isnt. I decoupaged the Cross, from the sheet, and then mounted it onto some yellow base card to match the card Blank I had created. I added some tiny silver peel offs in each corner, in place of brads. I crossed some Yellow organza ribbon in an X shape, and then mounted the topper onto the card.I used a Large white Lily from a collection by The Glitter Girls, a couple of long leaves from some My Craft Studio Paper Flowers, and some Larger Cream Organza Ribbon for a bow, just peeking out under the Flower.
The base I again covered, and then mounted a small Plaque from the  remains of the Waterfall above onto some yellow card, and raised it with some foam tape. I placed some of the tiny peel offs in the corners of the Plaque so it co-ordinates perfectly with the Topper.. The banner across the cross has been glazed with Anita's 3D clear Gloss.

So you can see I havent Given up crafting lol, but I just can post what I have been up to just yet.......xxxx
While I'm on about Debbees Cds why not pop over to her Blog, and download the papers she puts up for every challenge and create a card of your own. The CD I have used for my Easter cards, was my choice of CD's for winning the January Challenge, such a generous lady, Thanks Deb, xxx
