The first is using a Forever Friends image I got sent in a swap, with a sentiment stamp from a set by Studio G:
The image on this one is called 'Winter Pup' by Hero Arts - I've decoupaged his head, but you can't see that very well in the photo, and the green paper has been embossed with the 'Swiss Dots' folder:
The last one has a Penny Black image from the set 'Christmas Critters':

The card was tricky to photograph because of all the shiny paper...but at least it clearly shows the embossing!
If you're a Cuttlebug fan, and haven't seen this challenge before, have a look here for some fabulous projects and great ideas of new ways of using your bug.
This is the first time I've made a card for Mojo Monday, but as it's half-term (yippee!), I have a bit more time to craft. I've stretched the sketch to make a square card, but have left it quite simple, as I'm trying to keep some of my Christmas cards flat for posting!
I've used another Penny Black stamp ('Reindeer Pup') for my main image, and papers by DCWV from 'Christmas Wishes' and last year's 'Christmas' stacks. The sentiment stamp is by Three Bugs in a Rug.

The image I've used is one by Penny Black ('Kickin'') that was gifted to me by my lovely friend Karen. The papers are by Papermania ('Sweet Nothings'), the green panel of card was embossed with the Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder the sentiment stamp (stamped in two sections) is from a clear set ('Anytime Messages') by Hero Arts, and flowers are all by Prima - the large pink one with text on was sent to me by Pauline in a gorgeous friendship card a few months ago.

I thought I'd use this sketch for another Christmas card...well it is less than two months away now! lol
I've used a Penny Black stamped image ('Candle-Lit Night') that I was sent in a swap with my lovely friend Samantha. I've combined him with some papers from the DCWV 'Christmas Wishes' that I bought yesterday, and a sentiment stamp by Studio G. I've stuck quite closely to the sketch, but I did add some brads to the corners.
As I didn't have any suitable papers, I've used a combination of plain coloured cardstock (the green embossed with the 'Tiny Bubbles' embossing folder) in Halloween type colours, finished off with a piece of bright orange ribbon, and some die-cut letters to spell out a greeting.
I know that he's not exactly 'scary', and that I've had to doctor the image a bit, but hopefully this counts!

She had mentioned a few Penny Black stamps that she particularly liked, as well as mauve/purple colours, and she wanted it to have the word 'Mum' on it.
I chose the 'Cheesecake Parade' stamp - I don't actually own this stamp, but had an image left from a swap a while ago with my friend Samantha. I cut the letters using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet, the sentiment stamp (which reads 'have a fabulous birthday') is by Hero Arts, and the floral backing paper is from the 'Pocket full of posies' mat stack by DCWV. I've used the 'Swiss Dots' border embossing folder along the edge of the plain cardstock, and a few small Prima flowers to finish it off.
Now I need to go and make the card from me, and put the finishing touches to my present as I'm taking them with me when I go for a visit next week...
I'd love to pass this award on to all my blogging buddies, but the deal is that I can only pass it on to six friends...so here goes:
Happy Autumn Girls!
I had thought that I'd mount this on to a card, but in keeping with the spirit of ATCs, I've decided to swap him...so if anyone would like to offer him a good home, let me know!

I've just found the card I made on Saturday for this week's Friday Sketchers challenge...I'd put it 'somewhere safe' while the glitter dried, and forgot about it!
It took me ages to decide what to do with this sketch...I'm not sure why, as I really like the combination of different shapes.
I've used stamps from the 'Cupcakes' clear set by Hero Arts (topped with a button for a cherry), combined with cupcake backing papers from the 'Sweet Nothings' pack by Papermania. I've embossed the plain cardstock with my 'Swiss Dots' folder, and all of the shapes were cut using Nestabilities...what DID I do before I got my Cuttlebug???

I used more DCWV 'Christmas Stack' papers on the second card, with a stamp by Anita's.
