It's February already

How on earth did that happen? I'm sure someone has put the calendar on fast forward!!!

I actually managed a challenge from Just Bex yesterday morning. I had to make some baby cards for the shop and when I went to check out the forum, two of them fitted Nicky's brief!! Scalloped edges are SO very in, darling, so to cash in on the trend, for this challenge you need to make a card featuring a scalloped edge somewhere. You could use appropriate scissors, or scalloped punch, or any kind of die cutter, but if you haven't got any of those, you could always draw some scallops and cut round them (so no excuse for not entering.) I've just noticed that six of my cards fit the challenge :)
All my scallops were cut with punches, embossing was done using various Cuttlebug embossing folders, papers and card were from my offcuts box (so I've not idea what most of them are!) die cuts are a mix of Cuttlebug, Quickutz and Sizzix, flowers are Prima and the other bits were all from my stash :)
No more crafting till tomorrow evening (apart from finishing off a set of wedding stationery). I've just bought another Pink Petticoat cd which is urging me to use it so tomorrow I will play!
I have a couple of appointments today (but they are coming to me so I don't have to go out). I do need to go and get dressed though LOL
Tomorrow I have a wedding fayre at a new (to me) venue so if anyone is thinking of getting married and fancies an amble round a lovely hotel then we are at Hellaby Hall near Rotherham.
TTFN and thanks for looking :)

Some great cards there, Jackie! I especially like the first design (with the four squares) and the scallops finish that one off beautifully!

Best of luck with the wedding fair - hope it goes well for you.
