Guinea Pig Makes for today

Hello everyone gosh it feels like such a long time since I actually did some normal card making!  I have been sat at my desk all of this morning and some of yesterday just creating away.  As some of you know I run a forum with my great friend Anne which is all about guinea pigs and every so often I make a few cards for there.  So this past few days I have been creating some simple little cards with guinea pigs on.  
Here they are...

All the guinea pig images are from a old retired set of Jolly nation Decoupage sheets. Papers are various including Dcwv and the Paper mania  Hampstead range.  The punch is my xcut punch, gems and pearls are paper mania.  Nesties Lables 1, marianne creatables die, Bazzil card stock and just about everything else is from my stash.

Next on list is Teachers cards which I still have to finish, a birthday card and this weeks Little Musings freebie creation.  So busy busy busy!

Catch you all soon
