Lili of the Valley Card

It's me again - second post of the day!  This is a Welsh 70th Birthday card I made for a lady who loves to bake cakes.  This stamp from Lily of the Valley was perfect and I used some freebies from a magazine - the wooden spoon and whisk!  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used my MS punch to create the border.  It's an easel card which I find really hard to photograph!!.  I'd like to enter this card in the Lili of the Valley Birthday Card competition.  Thanks for looking xx

Layer it Up

Hi crafters,
I've made a card 'For a Special Mum' using some House Mouse decoupage - I love these little mice, they seem to be perfect for any occasion! I embossed the background then distressed the edges with some Tim Holtz distress inks, added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and some Card Candy for the corners.  I'd like to enter this card in the 'Layer it up' challenge on
Thanks for looking xx

New Baby Boy

Hi crafters,

This is a card I made for a new grandson.  I used a cute House Mouse stamp and used my Martha Stewart punch around the card - I love this punch.  I used an embossing folder from Spellbinders called 'Garden Lattice', flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a couple of heart pins and pearls to give the finishing touches. I would like to enter this card in the 'Lace and/or pearls Challenge' on the I ♥ ProMarkers challenge. Thanks for looking xx

House Mouse Sewing

Hi Bloggers,
This is a Welsh House Mouse Birthday Card I made for a 16 year old who's keen on sewing.  I coloured my image with promarkers and added a bit of glitter!  I printed some spools on my PC and added cotton in coordinating colours.  A cute sewing machine charm was added to the bow and a few Wild Orchid Craft flowers to finishes it off.  I'm entering this card in the 'Love You Sew Much' Challenge on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.  Thanks for looking xx
