Cute Card Thursday - Hanglar Fiskekille


Here is my card for this weeks Cute Card Thursday. I am so pleased with how this card came together and it has been made for my FIL for Father's Day. This weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge is to make a card using Katharina's fantastic sketch - see below. I have used my Hanglar Fisher boy Fiskekille. It is coloured using my Prismacolours pencils with use of Sansodor and paper stumps to blend. Used my Sakura Stardust pen to add a bit of shimmer to the fishy scales. The Fishy paper is by Provo Craft. The Bazzill has been embossed with Cuttlebug folder Spots and Dots. I used my nestabilites to cut the oval and scalloped oval shapes. The little fish sentiments were cut using my Cricut Expression and distressed with Versamagic. The sentiment was then handwritten. Other accessories: brad and fibre for seaweed. The ribbon and scalloped edging were from this months kit at Rebecca's Scrapbooking Stash. Hope you like it.

Wishing all my blogging friends a great weekend,
Hugs,





Nestabilities
I have been asked a few questions about Spellbinders nestabilities and thought this may help. I buy mine from a US company called Cut @ Home. If you register with them they will send you a 40% off voucher once a month, which is good for one item. They sell sets of four nestabilities and this is classed as one item. Including postage this will come to just over £30 including shipping. I was lucky in that I did not incur customs charges as they marked the package a low value. Don't forget to put the offer code in the notes entry and they will adjust you balance later and confirm this by email. I can fit a set of four nestie’s nicely in a cd jewel case to store. Hope this helps.





I would just like to thank Ila for passing this award to me today. This means so much to receive this from her as I totally idolise her and her work is so amazing. If you have never visited her blog before pop on over and say hello.
