Playing with a new toy

Good Morning!  I bought myself a new toy with some birthday money from my kind father-in-law and have spent lots of time playing with it on scrap paper, but here is the first card I'm happy to show off using it.  The toy is by Inkadinkado, it's called Stamping Gear and it's a sort of stamper's spirograph, a terrible time waster and great fun to play with.

I've used it to make another paper piercing card for the Less is More Challenge, stamping my circles off the page in Memento Bahama Blue ink and adding a Joanna Sheen sentiment, some gems and paper piercing. 
My card is for:
Less is More - paper piercing
Charisma Cardz - one layer creations
Cute Card Thursday - simplify
Lexi's Creations - monochromatic

I've also been stashbusting and finished up a couple more Joanna Sheen decoupage cards, in total contrast to my c&s card!  First up is a Faye Whitaker vintage seaside scene, with some elderly K&K paper and twine added.
My card is for:
Love to Create - wrap it up (twine)
Melonhead Friends - for a child/child image
Use Your Stash - summer - both decoupage cards fit this theme!
Robyn's Fetish - use ribbon or twine

Third card is one of my favourite House Mouse images, love this one!  Border uses a Martha Stewart punch and again I've used the K&K paper stash..
My card is for:
Joanna Sheen - layer it up
Created with Love - bright and cheery
Kenny K - layer it up
