Card and a Half

I dont think I have ever found a card challenge that was more "me" than this month's extra challenge at Card and a Half
The lovely Helen wrote "So for this months extra challenge i would love to see some fussy cutting, go get out those scissors girls!!!!"

It's safe to say she didn't have to ask me twice!! Loads and loads of fussy cutting here from a single sheet of "Tranquility" paper from the gorgeous My Little Shoebox "Harmony" range.

My Little Shoebox Layouts

Last night I taught a class at Scraphaven using My Little Shoebox papers.
There were two kits to choose from- one using the "Flying High" range, and the other using the "Away we Go" range. Both kits had a pack of of the gorgeous Glitter Alphabets with them.
We used corrugated cardstock, foam tape and helmar scrap dots to get lots of dimension to the layout.
There are about 3 kits left which Di will have for sale at the Scraphaven retreat! Get in quick if you want to reserve one for yourself!
