However, lusting after the new Accessorize stickers could well help this. I have always had a healthy appreciation (aka mad obsession) with stickers - although peel offs don't do anything for me - and these puffy stickers are just cute. Can feel a trip to Monsoon coming on...

The design is from a challenge sketch, which I rotated 90 degrees, and papers are from Kirsty Wiseman's Colour me Crazy CD - she has designed some fab male themed papers in colours that I love working with.
The Daring Cardmakers challenge blog has some lovely prizes from Sarah's Cards (http://www.sarahscardsltd.com/) and Nikki Sivils (http://www.nikkisivils.com/index.php) - her designs are beautiful. Why not have a go yourself?
Also made a card for FIL:

I wanted to make a card to enter into the Which Crafts? one colour challenge, so used Inkscape to weld the Thanks message (black) and the papers are Basic Grey (green).

Create a Critter cart provided the mats and "tweet", Prima paper and doodlebug rub ons did the rest! Just need to find someone who is moving house to send it to...
I can't believe that it's been 6 months since the little one was born - he's such a sweetie (even though his top teeth are coming through - and they are sharp!). Here's a pic - I could just eat him up!

fab'n'funky's challenge blog is sponsored by Doodle Dragon Studio this week, and on the sponsor's blog, they have lots of cute digi freebies. This week, they are asking if anyone can send in a card for an 18 year old who has MS - the bundle (hopefully from all over the world) will then be presented to her as a gift.
If you can help (will need posting to the US), and more about why they are asking this, here's the link:

I love my Tonic Butterfly punch (a recent purchase). The butterfly is so pretty and if you just glue down the centre line, it becomes added dimension on your projects.
Paper is from Kirsty Wiseman, Kaiser gemstones, AC thickers and I've also used my new border punch and a trusty scallop punch. Here's some detail:
This is the simplest card to make - a scrap of paper, inked at the edges, a stamped chick and a Chipboard heart inked and covered in crackle glaze. It's also one of my most favourite cards that I am struggling to give away. I'm hopeful that if I post pics of cards I love, then I can give them away and still have a pic to remind me!

It was entered in this week's challenge and was a lovely surprise to see it there! There are some other fab designs on there too - great for inspiration when your mojo goes for a burton!
PS Husband response to my news: "Oh great - what do you want on your toast?"

The challenge was to use emerald, the May birthstone, as inspiration and incorporate green. I've used October Afternoon papers and a Happy Birthday greeting that I designed to fit in a 1.5" punch. Topped off with Basic Grey Square emerald gems.
I really enjoy the simple style and love the colours.

I've been trying to keep the designs simple and use my scalloped punches and some papers I got free with a magazine last year. Managed to get 15 cards done - let's hope I manage some more before December.

I have been making more cards than scrapbooking pages recently, including samples for the lovely Kirsty Wiseman's fab new CD, "Colourful Burst of Fanciful Things" - keep an eye out for them on Create & Craft!:
If you are inspired, Kirsty's new CD is available here: http://www.kirstywiseman.com/cds/cds.html and is full of the most wonderful designs, including everything you might need for a cute tea party.
Kirsty will also be on Create and Craft this Saturday (20 March) demonstrating the CD and showing the wonderful card designs everyone has made.
