Inspired by the Glitz and Glamour of the Red Carpet

It is mid-way inspiration time over at the Clear it Out Challenge Blog, the sponsor is Bugaboo, what cute, cute images they have too, if you join the challenge at Clear it out you might win some of their great digis.
The image I was thrilled to play with is called Heels…….Big Bow and as soon as I saw it I thought of the glitz and glamour of the red carpet I coloured the image with prismacolour pencils and odourless mineral spirits, my something glittery from my stash is the red rhinestones and the glitter glue I have had for eons. Most everything on the card but the black glitter cardstock I have had for a long time.
Thanks for stopping by today to have a look at what I have been crafting. Don’t forget to join us at the Clear it Out Challenge Blog and you might win some digis from Bugaboo

Let’s have a BIG hug!!!

I made this card for a friend’s anniversary, I don’t use Yellow often but these cute hugging geese were the perfect match. The image is a cling mount (also available in wood mount) from Penny Black Designs coloured with my favourite medium,pencil crayons and odourless mineral spirits.
Of course not a whole lot of colouring here. Fleur dis Lis rectangle spellbinder was used for the white frame around the image.
Thanks for stopping by and come back again soon there is more crafting going on.

London 2012……The Olympics

It took me a while to get my head around the challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge, There is still a little time left to get your project on the Challenge Blog, it ends Saturday midnight EST.
I checked out my endless stash of House Mouse and Happy Hoppers and didn’t have anything suitable so I put my thinking cap on and this is what I came up with.
The stamp is from House Mouse Designs, friend and Monica are the Canadian Flag Bearer, I used the colours of our country,  red and white.. The Canadian flog is from the $1.50 basket at Michaels. The images are coloured with prisma pencils and odouless  mineral spirits.
Thanks for stopping by today to check out my card for Olympics.

In Honour of Milk Chocolate Day……Hot Chocolate!!!

At the Drunken Stampers Challenge Blog they are celebrating National Milk chocolate day and National Hamburger Day for a challenge. You can choose one or the other or you might as well do both, the challenge is open until August 31st.
Since I am a House Mouse addict I chose Mudpie in a scrumptious, marshmallow filled hot chocolate. The stamp is from Stampabilities, but the mice have their own web site. House Mouse.Drop in and see the cute little critters.
I used close to cocoa, night of navy cardstock, I cut with a “Nellie” die, the fancy tag is from spellbinder, As you can see from the picture I am at the cottage and my punches are at home so the sentiment will  be added at a later date.
Thanks for coming by today, I hope you enjoyed my favourite little rodent. Remember still time to get in on the challenge at the Drunken Stampers the challenge ends on August 31st/

Clear it Out and Dude Time Doodles present a Challenge

It is Team “A” time with Dude Time Doodles for this weeks challenge at Clear it Out “One for the Boys”, your stash item is  two or more patterned papers. Masculine cards are so much harder for me than the cute or frilly feminine ones. The image I choose is “rough night Rodney” he sure looks like he had one too.
The three patterned papers are from a hostess pack from Stampin’up that I received over 5 years ago and I’m still working on it. All the girly colours are gone though. The cardstock and paper are both Night of Navy, the image and layer were cut with  the long rectangle spellbinders. Kick back and relax is from Stampabilities.
Thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget to head to the challenge  at  Clear it Out and show us your masculine themed project……remember to use your patterned paper “stash”.
