New Challenge blog on the block ;-)

One Mouse Band :-)

Am back again with another cute House Mouse card using one of my new stamps from Simon Says Stamp :-) This is called One Mouse Band ,,, and as an ex trumet/bugle blower myself this is a special one for me :-) ( For those of you in Yorkshire I used to be cornet player for Grimethorpe Colliery Junior Brass Band,, bit of useless info for ya :-))

I coloured the image with my trusty copics and added stardust stickles everywhere ( what did we do before stardust stickles ?? ) The papers are a mix of SU, the Lovely Lilac card and the background DP, the little panel of flowers is from the Wild Rose Studio Floral Paper pack. The flowers are Prima Hydrangeas which have been glimmer misted, stickled and curled. The velvet brad is doodlebug and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set. I finished it off with a little lilac ribbon from my drawer and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops, I love these ,, I boought a little tower of them in all different colours ,, gorgeous they are, click here to see them, definitely one of my better buys :-)

Papertake Weekly Dawny's Sketch Challenge :-)

WOW :-) We had alot of fun coming to see all your FUN cards :-) Thank you to everyone for joining us :-)

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge Dawny has once again come up with a fabulous sketch for us to follow :-)

We are sponsored this week by Lilac Lemon Designs and they are offering a fabulous prize :-)

In addition to the sketch some of the DT made cards using Lilac and Lemon Colours :-)

For my card I used my lovely new Fairytale Tilda and Castle Background
stamps that I bought from Simon Says Stamp. I coloured the images with copics and popped Tilda in front. The papers are from a Wild Rose Studio Japan paper pad. The ribbon was in my drawer and the rose is a Prima one, sprayed with glimmer mist and stickled with stardust. I added some Robins Nest Dew Drops and a Melissa Frances rub on sentiment to finish :-)

Our GD and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so pop on over to the PTW Challenge blog to see them :-) Please leave comments too :-)
