A pinch and a punch for the 1st of the month

I can’t believe it’s November all ready – this year has flown by. Miss K is in the middle of a reading frenzy which leaves me with time to craft!

First is a card for:

Let’s Squash It is a new challenge all about embossing folders and encouraging us to get them out- I have about 55 in my ‘collection’ so I’m thankful for the inspiration. I used a Stampin Up stamp set ‘Geared Up Garage’ and the metal plate embossing folder. I thought the sketch worked beautifully with this folder.

Next is a card for the Alphabet Challenge – O is for old folk!

I have a girlfriend that I have known for 50 years and interpreted this challenge in a slightly different way (old friendship not old age!) – I decided to make a card for her birthday to recognise this fact. I used the ‘Senior Years’ stamp set from Stampin Up.

Next is a card for:

I created an alcohol ink background and then added a die cut sentiment from Uniquely Creative cut from some gold glitter paper.

Well, that’s it for today, thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
