Productive Thursday

I want to thank Shary for the idea of using acetate, as a part of DT of Tilda & Co she had used acetate for the Christmas challenge and reminded me that I wanted to have a go since seeing the article in Simply Cards by Julie Hickey. Things were going fine until the snowflakes and a bit of glue hopefully you can't see it.
The inside still needs a bit of work but the card was taking forever don't think I will be making too many of these.
The papers are scraps of Doodlebug and love the threading water punch. Also used the snowflakes from the Cuttlebug.


This card was inspired by Scrap, Paper, Scissors every day this week there's a tutorial using punches not just for Scrapbooking but there's some fab cards too. I thought the windmills would work great with CPS 77 sketch and I used some Crate paper from last year forgot what it was called.

Also check out the fantastic Blog candy on Enfys she makes the amazing cards especially when using the cricut.
