Aww... Get Well Soon

Another one of my favourite stamps. This little guy is again very versatile and can hold, or catch, almost anything. I am entering him in the Friday Sketchers challenge, sketch No. 3. The stamp is a Stampabilities House-Mouse stamp entitled 'I can Catch it' and the plaster was a bargain bucket stamp from katie & Co entitled 'Get Well Soon'.

Catch you later.

How do you wrap a hug?

Another cute little guy, cute enough for the Cute Card Thursday challenge.
This week it's a sketch and I am actually posting early for once. The bear (Gift Wrap) and sentiment (Wrap a Hug) are from Penny Black.
Thanks for looking, have a great week.

In full bloom

Could not resist this week's papertake challenge, luscious lime and lilac, two of my favourite colour combinations. I have made this card many times before but never is these colours and I think it works really well. This is a great card for all occassions, Birthday, Thank You, Get Well, Mother's Day. The flowers were cut out by the Cricut, but the Paper Shaper 'Retro Flower' punch works just as well and is the prefect size. You can even make the leaves from the Retro Flower punch, which is what I have done here, by cutting each petal to a point at the centre of the flower. One flower will give you 5 leaves. The vase and flowers have been stuck onto a tall thin card approx. 6.5cm in width by 20cm in length.

Thanks for looking.

You've got mail

I love any stamp that is versatile and this little character is perfect. He has such a cute face and because his arms are hanging, he can hold many things, today its a card. As I 3D'd his body and head I thought I would enter him in the Arty Girlz Challenge . He is a Whipper Snappper stamp and the card he is holding is from a Dovecraft clear set. The sentiments were done on my computer.

Thanks for stopping by.

Best Fishes on your Birthday

I know I'm a bit late but one of the challenges over at Daring Cardmakers this week was to use this sketch, so I thought I would have a go. The stamps are from 'Rubbernecker'.
Thanks for looking.
