Crafting Frenzy

Hi All!
Have had a tiny Crafting Frenzy over the last 24 hours and here are my humble efforts. I am sorry that the information is either brief or vague - I really must get into the habit of keeping a scribble pad by my workspace to make a note of the name of the stamp and what papers I am using. Any errors in info are entirely my mistake.

OK, card No 1 - Penny Black stamp "Xmas Kiss" on an 8x3 card with Papermania old Christmas paper for the background. The little tag was cut using Mini Labels on my CBug.

Card No 2 - I really like this one, despite the simplicity. Penny Black "Christmas Tidings" stamp (one of the new releases). Background stamped using Versafine Smokey Grey. Main image highlighted with ProMarkers. Text stamp is also a Penny Black.

Card No 3 - A Whipper Snapper image (ain't she just the cutest) but for the life of me I can't remember her name. Backing papers are PaperCellar Easter/Spring collection and Bazzil Basic card. Greeting is from a Hero Arts clear set.

Card No 4 - ah yes, the Cinderella card. This one was an order from a friend. Last year I did her a Disney castle themed engagement card and this is the wedding card for the same couple.

Card No 5 - my first Gorjuss Girls stamp "Little Miss Attitude" - I am so in love with this l'il darlin'. Backing papers are DCVW Floral Stack, gold embossed card from Create & Craft, flowers are Prima Esprite Brown.

Card No 6 - another of the new Penny Black stamps "Home For Christmas". I wanted to keep this straightforward so it is simple stamping in Versafine Majestic Blue with a few little gems as a twinkly surprise. Tree paper is Anita's and blue from Daisy & Dandelion "A Winters Tale" collection.

Card No 7 - and just for the fun of it, using the Penny Black Saturday Sketch Challenge No 61 for inspiration (I won't enter it, it is nowhere near their amazing standard). I can't remember the name of this stamp either (it's an older one and probably discontinued). Didn't look to see what the papers were either (how senile am I getting?) but the flower is from the pink collection from WHSmith!

PS. Have now been nagged by Carol so am desperately trying to work out how you add a link .... aaargh this is not working! Anyone have an idiots guide please?!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Sketch 61.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to wade through this lot! Hope to see you all again soon.

First thing's first - HOW DARE YOU NOT ENTER YOUR PB CARD! Your card is well worthy of a place in their challenge - get over there now girl and link it! Consider yourself told!

Now my blood has stopped bubbling..... All of your cards are GORGEOUS, that WS image is so cute - I love her! I was trying to work out which my fav card was to tell you - but it kept changing, so I'll go with all of them!

I really like the Whippersnapper card-such a sweet image. I wondered if Whippersnapper was still around so I looked them up. Cute stamps but shipping is insane. Ah well, I didn't need them anyway.
