Truly Scrumtious and Charisma Cardz Challenges

The theme this week on the Charisma Cardz Challenge is 'Hugs and Cuddles'. I followed the 1st Truly Scumptious Challenge sketch for this card.The image is Penny Black Squeeze till I Squeak, but I taped off the large daisy flower and only stamped the mouses :-)
The papers and brads are from papermania. The heart shape was in the blog candy I won, thanks June :-) I stamped this with 'Hugs' which shows up quite well in real life but is all sparkly on the photo ! .The flower was punched out and the small one was cut out from the paper, all fixed together with a sugar coated brad.

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Spoonfull of Sugar,Cute Card Thursday and Daring Cardmakers Challenges :-)

The theme this week at Cute Card Thursday is Signs of Spring,well this stamp is quite spring like isn't it ! the theme on Daring cardmakers is 'feeling green', lotta green on this card !! I followed the sketch on the Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge .
The main image is 'fur ball fun' by Penny Black, the scroll tree and sentiment are both by Hero Arts.I gave the sheep a blue rinse ha ha and I used yellow fun flock on the chicks so in 'real' life they're quite fluffy, the little flowers are made using flower soft :-)

Thanks for looking, i appreciate your comments , so please leave me one !! :-)

Kaboodle Challenge meets The Vicar Of Dibley :-)

Am sure many of you will have seen the Vicar of Dibley episode where Geraldine meets Darcey Bussell ( mot sure if the splling is right !), As soon as I saw the sketch for this challenge I knew I had to make it into a mirror and use this stamp. Unfortunately I don't have the 'other' ballerina from Whipper Snapper, she is a little bit chubby and she would have been perfect for the mirror image !! If you look closely you can see her image which was stamped with hero arts grey shadow ink , then the image was coloured a little bit.
I really had fun making this card, the paper in the mirror is a download from Kaboodle, I needed it to be grey so I just printed in it greyscale ! easy enough !! took me ages to think of it though !! duh. The 'wallpaper' is by papermania. I cut the mirror frame out of silver glitter card twice to 3d it, on my cricut. The 'lights' around the frame are made by punching circles out of holographic paper. I think I've said enough !!
Thanks for looking, I really appreciate your comments so please leave me one before you hop off :-)
