My Numbers card uses a Cuttlebug background. I have added chalk inks directly to the negative side of the Cutlebug folder, popped in my white card and embossed. The images come from the Card Toonz Professional Nuttyness CD. Faux stitching detail and a computer generated text ribbon finish the card.

I stamped the jeans pocket twice and decoupaged the pocket and belt loops. I added ribbon through the belt loops and brads to the pocket. I distressed around the edges and mounted it onto silver card then onto a black card blank. For the mobile phone, I cut a rectangle of black card and rounded all the edges, then using silver mirror card I cut out a rectangle for the screen and rounded two of the edges then punched out 9 small circles to which I wrote numbers 1 - 9, then assembled it and popped it in the pocket.

I cut out a house, and inked it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I added a strip of tape measure paper and stamped various background stamps containing numbers. I cut out a couple of clock faces and stamped the main saying (by Paper Artsy) and added some Primas, butterflies and a brad to finish off.

I made my card using blue and brown cardstock and added a verse about being 'Sixteen'. I watercoloured my Bunny stamp - by Bootiful Stampz - and embellished with some pearl beads, flowers, black check ribbon, buttons and string.

I traced around a template onto patterned paper to create the number 3 and the added some faux stitching detail. I also stamped Birthday Hamish and coloured him with Distress Inks. I finally added some doodling, Prima flowers, Dovecraft brads, a Penny Black sentiment and Doodlebug rub-ons.

For this weeks challenge I started with the paper artsy number stamp. I stamped it with brown versafine then punched the edge with a stampin' up bind punch and inked the edges. I stamped lots of other images using the same ink and inked all the edges. The daisy was then stamped onto white paper and cut out - bindis have been added to the centre.
The butterfly has been made to sparkle with stickles and a bindi body. I finished it off with a phototurn and a couple of brads.

Well, better late than never--I guess that is my motto this week!

I've entered a card with a number on it. I had to make one for a 50th anniversary, so decided to enter it. It also fits another challenge, so it a 2 for 1 card.

When you get to my blog, choose the Sassafras and Gingerbread site and it will take you right to the card.
