It's Friday so Friday Snippets Time

Good Evening Peeps

Yes I know.  It is not Friday.  But you see I started the post on Friday but err, fell asleep whilst having a hug on the settee with Hubby and err, woke up on Saturday!  So I folded away the laptop and now I am posting it on Saturday night!

I have here two birthday cards, which I have made for lickle people but in different colourways.  Top one for Ryan who was two this week and the lower one for Carmen who will be 6 next week.  

As you may tell, I am now using circles!  If you know me, you will know that I cannot cut circles to save my life.  My secret??  Treated myself to a set of Nesties in, yep, you guessed it, circles!!  Lurve them!  It is great that you can line the stamping up and cut whilst seeing what you are doing!
I did buy a circle cutter a while ago, but I don't get very good results with it and am generally disappointed with it and it was not cheap :-(

Anyhoo, both designs are House Mouse stamps which were coloured using Copics (love them), stamped with a freebie from Do Crafts.  All papers came out of my Snippets box (es) so that means I get to play in the Playground with our lovely Leader Di (aka Piglet!).

Right, just come back from a fabby meal with the family for my Brother's 50th.  Will show you his card later this week!

Hello you dirty late night stop out!

LOVE both these cute cards. With you all the way on the circle Nesties. It's the best way to make circles for sure.
