Fancy A Jaffa Cake? (Other cakes are available)

The new challenge starts at     
  Lavinia Stamps, the theme this time is
 hence the reason for the title of this post, I'm sure that many people can remember the advert where the lady teaches the children about the the phases of the moon with the aid of the fore mentioned sweet treat, saying with each bite:- "Full moon, half moon, total eclipse" as she polishes it off! If you've never seen it I apologise, it just tickles me.

For my first card I used the following images:-
The oh so lovely Mooch
The Moon, was masked as I added a little ink to the sky I adapted its size by stamping through an aperture. I stamped the slender mushrooms beneath the tree..

For my second card I used one of the new cutting files, Bliss, cutting it on my ScanNcut, the cutting files are something new to Lavinia, there are so many to choose from. I love being able to size them perfectly for my needs, I also used the ScanNcut to cut my octagonal card blank and the frame which I inked and stamped using my favourite Background script stamp
I used foam pads to lift the cut image from the stamped background.

I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-
Kitty Bee 87, something new, (cutting file),
Purple Haze 117, Fantasy.
If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning a £40 voucher to spend at Lavinia, ink up you Lavinia stamps and join us in the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by,

Both cards are sensational, I'm very partial to mushrooms having worked in a Mycology Lab for over 3 decades.
