Simon Says ,,,, Love is in the Air

Love is in the air ,,,, do you remember that song ?? Oohh I used to think John Paul Young was gorgeous !! :-) You can hear the song on You Tube here :-) Turn it on and listen to it while you're hopping around to see the DT creations :-)

We want to see some 'LOVE' on your creations for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week :-) Valentine's day is fast approaching and lots of challenges are having a similar theme so plenty of scope to combine challenges !! :-)

As always Heidi will be giving a FABULOUS $50 spree to her Simon Says Stamp store and with all the new goodies arriving from the CHA you will be able to choose the very latest up to date goodies !! Woo Hoo !! :-)

Well ,,, I just HAD to use this House Mouse Throwing Daisy Petals stamp !!!! PERFECT for the theme I thought,, and you all know I luves me mousies !!! :-) Oohh ,, we must have had a ickle hole somewhere and we had some of these litte fella's getting into the cupboard under the sink !! We caught them and set them free ,, sooo cute !! Luckily our 7 cats didn't get them first !! Amy wanted us to keep them as pets ,,,, hmmmm ,,, !!!!

I coloured the image with me trusty Copics and inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink. The papers are Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage paper pad and I made the strip with white card, sprayed with Snow Angel Glimmer mist ( very delicate pink). I then stamped a Penny Black mouse footprint stamp along the eges and stamped ' loves me, loves me not' which is a Magnolia stamp accross the middle . I used a Martha Stewart Lace Heart border punch and Frond Leaf punch and added some Prima flowers . The delicate tulle ribbon was in my drawer and the charm was a gift from my HM teamie, America :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous creations for your inspiration so pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them !! :-) Don't forget to spread the LURVE and leave comments too ,, we all appreciate them :-)

Happy Crafting !!

ABC Christmas Challenge ,, C for Clean and Simple

Good Morning all :-)

Its time for a new theme on the ABC Christmas Challenge. This time it is Helen's time to choose the theme ,,

CLEAN AND SIMPLE + Helen's fab sketch to use :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab spree to her store for one lucky entrant !! :-)

I must admit I did struggle a bit with this ,,, but then I went looking for inspiration on Mandi, aka Enchanted Occasions blog . Mandi is fabulous at the CAS look and I CASED this card, thanks Mandi :-) I love this card ,,, so quick and easy to make ,, I intend to make loads of these ready for next Christmas !! :-) The blue card is from SU ( bought from Mandi) and I used some hammered white card and plain white card which was embossed with a Swiss Dots folder. The snowflake is a Spellbinders Snowflake Wonder die cut and I used a Martha Stewart Icicle border punch too. The Noel stamp is from Hero Arts and I stamped it with blue Brilliance ink. For the sparkle I used Crystal ultrafine glitter on the snowflake and stickles everywhere else ,, finished with the ribbon and a few gems :-)

And here is Helen's Fab sketch !! :-)

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

Happy Crafting :-)
