SWEETS :-) ,..... Yummy :-)

We are sponsored this week by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and she will be giving one lucky entrant a fab shopping spree to her store and she will pay the potage costs too :-)

I LOVE this cute House Mouse Truffles stamp ,, it is a big one tho so not much space for much else on your card ,,, unless you maka a 8x8 one !! :-)
I inked the stamp with Rich Cocoa ink to keep everything brown :-) I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink I also used some clear glaze to the icing on the truffles. The papers are GORGEOUS Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby ones, perfect with this image eh !! it even has de Chocolat written on it :-) The fancy edge across the bottom is a Tim Holtz On the edge Sizzix die . The ribbon was in my drawer and the rose is Prima which I sprayed brown with my fab copic air brush system :-) I then just finished it with some flat backed brown pearls :-)

edited : I bought a box of yummy looking choccies especially for this piccy ,, and they were absolutely foul ughguh they all went in the bin :-(

The DT have made some amazing cards for you to see ,,, so pop on over to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge to see them :-)

Sketch and Stash Challenge , Becky's Sketch :-)

Good Morning and time for a new challenge over on the Sketch and Stash Challenge :-) becky has made a lovely sketch for you to follow, I am sure you will all like this one :-) We also like to know what your new or neglected stash is too :-)

We are being sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and one lucky entrant will win a $20 spree to the Simon says Stamp Store :-) Heidi will pay the shipping costs too :-)

and this is the fabby sketch :-)

I used my fairly new , but neglected Hero Arts Silhouette Flower cling stamp. I must admit I do love the cling ones ,, easy to use and store :-) I inked the stamp with pink chalk ink, then stamped over it with a dry script stamp, this just removed some of the ink. I then stamped it again on a separate piece of card and stuck them together to make the stalks a little longer as this is a square stamp, and covered the join with the ribbon.

The papers I think are Basic Grey, they were a RAK from a buddy so not quite sure, the flowers are Prima and I have had them in my drawer FOREVER !! I do love them tho and was just waiting for the right card to use them on :-) For the circle bit I inked a script cuttlebug folder with the same ink and cuttlebugged it :-) The gorgeous butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch, I punched it in white card ,, which was coloured with the same pink chalk and then the vellum was inked, sprinkled with sparkle EP and punched too. The pearls are from Kaiser Craft.

I am entering this into the following challenges :-

Allsorts ,,,,,,,,Strawberries and Cream

Create4Fun,,,, Black/White + one colour

Crafty Calendar ,,,,,, Bugs and beasties with the optional extra of wings :-)
