Waltzingmouse Fanatics Sketch Challenge

Hi, this time my card is for the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge, Sketch 5, there is still time to enter this challenge.

I used the Waltzingmosue Stamps : French Country Set with the lovely lace band, backgrounds from Pic Nic set, Heirloom Patterns and Gingham & Co, getting a kitchen theme using shades of green and the sentiment "Good Morning"
I  have assembled as a peg notice board, for holding notes.

The above is my basic design, below a picture showing the "To Do List" in place, but still blank !!

I am going to get a frame from our local shop and then hang up in my kitchen.

I was the choice of the ladies at WMSFanatics for No 1 fan with my peg board design. I am thrilled

Thank you for visiting

Waltzingmouse Pajama Party March

Hi, this is a card challenge for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Pajama Party, Challenge 1, To Die For :

I made this card a while ago for a colour challenge, using Waltzingmouse stamps and die cut for the little lantern set, with a plaid stamped background. Hope that you like it.

Time is running away today, I had hoped to create a design using the funky feathers stamps and die cut.

I got my second card completed, not quite how I expected, using the funky feathers stamps and dies to create a fan, mounted on embossed kraft card and using Ritz background

Thank you for visiting, still time to enter your design check out the Waltzingmouse stamps blog for entry details.

Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge No 12

Hi, this is a card for the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge Number 12, For the Boys.

I do not make many cards that are not floral and feminine, so this was a true challenge for me. Using one of my Waltzingmouse sets that was suitable, the Ocean Bound set, and a spellbinders die set, so that my card could be very simple and not fussy, masculine, hopefully. I took inspiration from Claire and the Waltzingmouse Blog for the splatted sea stamp and a favourite Spellbinders die set was used.

Stamped using Marine Blue & Summer Sky inks with a kraft card contrast mount. My first choice with the Anchor.

Then tried out other sentiments from the set, for a "Bon Voyage" card

Final photograph is of a trio of cards all in the same style and colourways, my two previous cards and a third one with the sentiment "Anchors Away --- Sailor Boy" My thoughts were for another Bon Voyage travelling card.

Hope that you enjoyed looking at my designs, thank you for visiting

Yesterday we had eleven buzzards in our top field, have not seen so many together before.
