House Mouse challenge HMFMC114

Well here I am again and it's another House Mouse card for the new challenge over on the House Mouse and Friends blog. This challenge has been set by Lori "I am going to be a Grandma again VERY soon...and it's a GIRL! To celebrate ... my challenge for you is to create a *Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice* project for a precious little in your life".

I couldn't not do this challenge as for those that do not know, I am expecting a pink bundle all of my own at the end of May! I'll share my scan pics with you at the end of the post.

Here's my card

My House Mouse stamps are limited to two sets so I had to raid my box of images and luckily found these two which were perfect, coloured with copics and prismas.

DCWV papers, Martha Stewart heart border , ribbon, nappy pin, charm and candy dots to finnish.

And this is number 5 addition to our family

12 week scan

20 week scan

I'm 27 weeks so on the final leg, won't be long until she's here.

House Mouse Challenge - HMFMC113 Make Wishes Come True

I have finally come to love these little meeces, to begin with their feet put me off lol. Anyway, persuaded myself to buy two sets of the unmounted rubber stamps this week.

Bearing in mind this is only my second attempt at colouring the image, it's not too bad. Once I found the right colours (and I've made a note for next time) it was quite easy, although they are very detailed stamps the coloured image helped. I used copics, E43, E50, E51 and R20 for the mouse itself and added a touch of prisma pencils on top to bring it to life a bit more and finnished with some glamour dust on the icing. The gorgeous papers are Bo Bunny Crazy Love.

I'm going to be brave and enter it into the House Mouse & Friends challenge 113 - Make Wishes Come True (hope I've followed all the rules)

Flowers to brighten the day

Well what a horrible wet and cold day, I haven't made anything for a couple of days so thought I'd show you some cards I made for my Mum to send. She's not really into the cute characters so I attempted some floral ones and must say I was out of my comfort zone! She was pleased with them so that's all that matter.

The images are from Justinklined, I never used to use digi's either as my ink smudged with my copics but it seems fine now (very strange)

Stay warm and happy crafting

on a roll 2nd challenge card

Here's my second card of the day, whilst visiting some blogs I came across the fabulous Sketch n Stash I love the fact they have a catalogue of sketches which is great when the mojo has gone awol and makes life so much simpler.

This weeks challenge is an open sketch and you can chose any from the catalogue, I picked number 12

I have used one of my lovely new digi's from Saturated Canary (my new love) it's called Thank You, I've coloured her with copics and edged with distress inks. The papers I've had for ages and are by Kaisercraft, finnished off with some ribbons and flowers from stash.

Thanks for looking.

First challenges in ages

Well hello everyone, hope you are all keeping warm, we've not had any snow yet, but apparently it's on it's way :( so I intend to stay indoors all weekend with the kettle on standby.

I have finally found my mojo thanks to some gorgeous images by Krista Smith over at Saturated Canary it all started with a freebie then I bought five more this week, you can find them at her etsy shop.

So for my first challenge it was only right I entered one of her blog challenges Pink, Red and White. I ordered some lovely new papers the other day which would have been perfect but they haven't arrived yet and my image was sitting coloured waiting to be used.

I rooted around and found some old freebie Nitwit papers and the image I used is Sweet 16 - Peggy Sue, coloured with copics, the gorgeous flowers are by Petaloo.

ATC's and Fat Pages with Attitude challenge 6

It's another fortnight over at the blogs with Attitude, the rules have now changed slightly in that you are allowed to enter an ATC / Fatpage or Card with an anything goes theme, hopefully this will encourage more of you to enter. The link to both blogs are on my side bar and it would be lovely to see you over there.

Here are my creations for this challenge


I used the "I'm Late" image, coloured with copics, then added Crackle Accents to the clock face and glossy accents to the rim. The background stamp is by Creative Expressions and coloured with Distress Stains.


I used the stunning "Dark Valentine" image and coloured her with copics in rich valentine colours. I love these digi's with lots of shading they are so easy to colour.
