Card for my niece.

The house mouse stamp collection keeps growing as does my acquisition of them! I just can't resist them!  This one has been coloured with promarkers and plenty of stickles glitter on that frosted icing. Papers are Pink Petticoat, which I also just can't get enough of!

Card for a man.

I bought a stamp plate of these Sheena Douglass stamps to try, and I have to say that I am very pleased with how they stamp. I have coloured this with distress inks.  I am still getting used to them, but I do like the effect that they give here. Promarkers are good, but sometimes you want something a little less " printed", if you know what I mean, and these inks certainly fit the bill.  The papers are Pink Petticoat.

Time to get those stripes out.

This week in the CMLI group on Craftbubble, our uber talented Karen has set us a fantabulous sketch and a twist of getting out our stripes.  I have chosen, this time, to use a very cute Lili of the valley image and some Christmas stripey paper, stripey ribbon and a stripey cuttlebug embossing folder. I think I'm seeing stripes now!

This week's I love promarkers challenge.

This week on I love promarkers challenge blog they have a challenge of Green and purple using your promarkers.  i don't very often get chance to join in with this challenge but this week, being on holiday I have! My new Magnolias arrived and I have had great fun making this card. I have really gone to town with glitter, buttons, beads, gems, stitching, ribbon and paper piecing! I'm very pleased with how it's turned out!
