Blogtober the 30th - penultimate day!

The end of Blogtoberfest is in sight... I'd worry about what on earth to blog through November, except (a) I have Blogging for Scrapbookers to sustain me, and (b) I've never yet run out of stuff to say!!

Here are a few cards I made last night:

They're all dinky little A7 size, very simply put together - strips of my hoarded scraps in rainbow colours, and a tiny peel-off greeting (these tiny greetings are among the few peel-offs that I actually like!) I wanted gold greetings - you know, like the gold at the end of the rainbow - but I only had one gold peel-off that said the right thing so the rest are black. And actually, the black greeting on white card with rainbow brights looks pretty good anyway :-) I like this colour combination - as can be seen here, and in various other projects I'm sure I'll share some time!

I must just mention a couple of kits on offer at Can You Pixel This? I can vouch for the quality of Jess' work and her excellent taste, on account of me having received this from her last week. Her latest offering is a kit to help you make some beautiful little magnets, something like this:

Better yet, the kit comes in this cute little tin:

I've also got my eye on a traveler kit that comes in orange or blue (I'm after the blue one):

Have a great weekend, everybody :-)

It is pitiful that I cannot even keep away from the computer for more than 24 hrs! I LOVE THE MAGNETS!
