Sweet Stampin with Sketch and Stash on a Cute Card Thursday

Want us to make "Just a Note" this week and my teamies have come up with some splendid note card designs!  Our sponsor this month is Wink Wink Ink who are giving the lucky randomly picked entrant three  digi stamps of their choice!
I combined my DT requirement with the challenge over at Sketch and Stash which is a "sketch" and this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge who want us to make a "play on words".  I am not sure whether or not my play on words will be understood internationally but in England we have a very well known adhesive that comes in a tube and is called UHU (prounounced "Yoo Hoo") so I used my new image by Wink Wink Ink of a little mouse fixing the broken shell on this turtle with a tube of sticky glue and added a little tube of glue of my own.  The back end of the tube is curled over the layer with the image and I popped the shell, the mouse's forequarters and the front of the tube to add dimension. Papers are Basic Grey and the sentiment is word processed.
Do have a go at the challenge over at Sweet Stampin this week and check out the great makes of the team.

Hello my little Fluffer! I think this is such a cool card. I love how much thought you put into your creations and then follow it up by details like popping out the shell. You rock! xxx

That glue tube is brilliant! I was admiring your colouring and didn't notice it immediately! Do they still make UHU, haven't seen it in years it seems (although you can bet now I'll be seeing it everywhere!)

Love it x

A very clever card Lesley, and beautifully coloured too. You were asking about the cutting my flowers on the cricut. I didn't use a catridge but cut my own created flower shapes using Make the Cut Software. Hope that helps.

Loving the dimension on this one and the play on words is great, although I admit I wouldn't have gotten it right away without your explanation, as I always pronounce it in the german way and didn't think about it at first...
Love, Alex
