Hi all I have two cards in this post today before I get onto them I wanted to let you know that I won last weeks Anyone For Anya challenge, I was so thrilled when I saw that I had be chosen as the winner, thank you girls at AFA 
My first card I have made for the following challenges:
For my card I have used one of my all time favourite stamps the Christmas Anya, I used black Momento Tuxedo ink, I coloured her with Promarkers then added glitter to the furry bits and cut her out. I used an oval scalloped die cut to mount her on with silicone glue, I distressed the white nestie with both worn lipstick and vintage photo distress inks, I used red liquid pearls and stamped a holly leaf and mounted above her head.  The papers are a mixture of Docrafts, My Minds Eye and Basic Grey, all the papers shapes have been mounted onto red card.  I added a red lame ribbon and bow, the sentiment I distressed with worn lipstick ink, finally I added a flower and some leaves.

My second card is something I have wanted to try for ages after seeing so many wonderful CAS cards while visiting my blogging buddies.
It is both minimal and black and white, I believe this will be eligible for some of the Halloween Challenges that are around at the moment but if not please delete it.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
For my card I have used an 8x8 white scalloped card base, the layers are all Tapestry embossed card and very treasured, but I just felt I wanted something a little extra as I did not want to use any dp.  The image is from Delicious Doodles which I have had for ages but I love it, the Gargoyle reminds me so much of the many horror films that I love to watch.
I used my SU punch for the corners, I added black card candy and my wide SU black and white ribbon.
I hope that you like my cards, thank you for visiting I will see you later hugs to all.

Hi Lorraine,

2 super cards today and on the opposite sides of the spectrum!

Anya does look so warm and cosy snuggled in her glittery snug! All of those layers are super and add such a great touch of detail.

Meanwhile, on the darker side!!
Great use of the gargoyle, youve really really inspired me to use it now! It does look so striking in the monochrome and I am loving that super b/w ribbon too!
Thanks for playing along at Delicious Doodles (I hope our froggy goes live today when Teri is back from her crafty retreat!).
