I made these cards the other weekend, I liked the simplicity of the design that I made them in a couple of different colours, I used the scalloped circle nesties for the aperture, that seems to be the only way I use my nesties now lol, I love the effect, hope you agree.

I had a lovely two weeks on the lovely island of Menorca, we stayed at the resort of Cala'n Forcat at the Hotel Los Delfines, the weather was beautiful, apart from the last two days when it was overcast and it rained on the last night, but you can't ask for much at this time of year.
I had my first experience of being stung by a bee while I was there, not something I wish to do again I might add, cos it hurt lol, anyway I was in much better condition than the bee after it.
I made a couple of cards before I went away and didn't get round to putting them on here so thought I would do that now, I am a bit naughty though as one of them should have been on it's way to a friend of mine in America, but I forgot to post it.......ooooops, I'm sure I will be forgiven....hopefully, anyway hope you like them.
Thanks for stopping by.

Here is the card I made for the card swap card over on the Crafts Beautiful Forum.
The theme was magical and glittery, I'm afraid I don't normally do fairies and things,
not that I don't like them, it's just I can never seem to get them to go together,
anyway I had a try at this one and think it worked ok, I quite like it and so did the person I sent it too.

This first card was made using my new circle scalloped nestabilities, I wanted to use bright spring colours and green and yellow came to mind, the colours are really fresh.
The second card came about by accident, when I cut the green card for the first card, I didn't realise that I had cut a square card and that the 'hole' that was left could actually be used to make another card, but that's just what I did.
I stamped and embossed the front of the card, then placed acetate behind the aperture, then added a butterfly and some flowers, and voila I had made another card from my nesties.
I'm hoping to make some more of this kind of card as a lot of people have said they like it, and I'm hoping that when I come to do another that it turns out just as well as my 'flukey' one.

Well I finally managed to get round to having a go with my new toy, this is the end product.
I looked at a few videos before even taking it out of the box so that I had an idea of how to use it.
Well I don't think it has turned out too bad, but I must get different sizes of wires (more shopping lol) I did find it a bit of a pain cutting all the individual papers to go inside as I used my own size to make this up, so if anybody has got any hints on how to do it quicker then please let me know, it's ok if you do the size from Zutter as you can buy them ready made, had a look at the Dreamkutz, but wow is it expensive, so don't think that will be falling into my shopping basket lol.
Thanks for taking the time to look, and please leave a comment if you have visited as it's nice to know that humans are acutally looking at my blog and not a computer lol.
