Celebrate !!!

I made this card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge which is celebrating it's blogoversary :-) They have asked us to choose any theme from the last year. Well as I didn't find the time to join in last week and had already planned what I was going to do I thought I would do it now :-) So this is a song title ,, Celebrate by Kool and the Gang I thought it quite fitting !! :-) I also followed the sketch from Challenge 48 ;-)
I am also entering this into the Stamp Something Challenge
they are asking us to use our favourite papers or colours,,, I chose both :-)

The images is my new HM Party Ribbons and the HM Celebrate stamps which I recently bought from Simon Says Stamp,, cute eh !! :-) I coloured them with copics and 3D'd the mouse ,, added ice stickles and some red and pink gift wrap ribbons.

The papers are my favourite new Fancy Flourish set from Funky Fairys Papercrafts I also used It's so Distressing Vol 1 papers too. I know I am on the DT and you may think I am biased ,,, but truly these papers are fabulous and so convenient !! one of my fave colour combos is red/black so I chose to use them too :-)

On the sketch it said ribbon to go across the card ,, but I stamped footprints instead :-) The black fancy ribbon is from Bunny Zoe Crafts :-)

I have made this for my daughter's friend's 16th birthday,, Emma came with us to England recently and told her mum it was the best holiday she had ever had ,,, she's been to Disneyland Florida,, a Caribbean cruise etc !! BUT she preferred YORKSHIRE !!! :-) Brilliant !! lol :-)

I would love to read your comments so don't forget to leave me one before you go :-) Also I have a blog candy at the top of my blog if you would like to enter ,, there are conditions tho !! :-)

Just Magnolia Papertake Weekly and Sophisti-cat Challenges :-)

I made this card following Bev's lovely sketch on the Just Magnolia Challenge

The image is a new Magnolia one ,, this one is called Jam Tilda from the Yummy In My Tummy Collection and will soon be available in the Simon Says Stamp Store ,,, they are winging their way towards the shelves right now :-)

I coloured both this image and the one on the bag with copics and used a little copic glitter pens too ,, they're fabulous, I coloured the background paper they are sitting on with Dusty Concorde distress ink which was diluted with a spray of water. The papers are all Funky Fairys Papercrafts . I used the brand new released Fancy Flourish set and It's so Distressing Vol 1 papers

I made this gift bag for the Sophisticat Challenge which I am very sorry to say I missed their first week last week ,,, :-(
I saw a gorgeous bag made by Jacqui on her blog yesterday, incidentally she is giving hers away with some fabby blog candy :-) I followed the link to the SCS website where there ia a tutorial on how to make this. you can see the Box in a Bag tutorial here.
As you can see I did faux stitching on the card and the bag using the lovely copic glitter pens so I am also entering these into the Papertake Weekly Challenge too :-)

It was so easy to make and will definitely be making more of these in future,,, lovely gift bag eh ! The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on available in the Simon Says Stamp Store ,,,, I love these :-)

I have a weekly blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if anyone would like to take a look it is at the top of my blog.

Please don't forget to leave me a comment so I know you've dropped in for a visit :-)
