MCV 30

There is something different going on over at the Muse Christmas Vision this week .We are being asked for a tag and to link it up with  Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas tags - there is prizes galore ...Christmas coming early !

The theme is red with a Christmas tree (or other greenery) 

Using Clearly Besotted santa baby stamps I made a tag to match a card and santa bag that I am giving to a friends little girl and to make it a little bit more Christmassy and fun for her added the jingle bells, I'm also  hoping it will be also work as an early warning system to her mum,just in case someone decides to have a wee peek !:)

Thanks for taking the time to have a look

Muse 143

This week it is Tracey's turn to be our host over at Muse this week and she has done a really cute christmas card ..love her little reindeer!

Unfortunately I don't have a little cutie like that so decided to go for the bauble 
I stamped the little cottage image twice and then punched one out using my old SU bauble punch and matched it up,then lightly chalked the snow and gold embossed the sentiment  before mounting my red and white panels onto my card...can you spot my mistake ??? as I mounted it my liquid pearl snow hadn't quite dried and I smudged a couple but only the camera picks it up it's not so noticable in RL!

Well I made this card in a couple of hours and it has taken me twice that long to photograph the darned thing!!!

Thanks for taking the time to look

Really really loved betty's card this week over at Muse Christmas Visions thought it was just stunning! but I have very limited Christmas stash (in fact all my stash is quite limited ,though I am working on that!,have you checked out the DT craft rooms on Casology,they are showing their crafty spaces off .... and that is what I aspire to have one day hee he )and so this week I had nothing that fit the bill , so just had to keep it really simple!
I took my inspiration from Betty's :-

Gold sentiment
Holly and berries

This week our Muse is Michele and she has done a beautiful card that incorporates a range of techniques so lots of choice!!!
 My first choice was to go for what popped out at me which was the beautifully water coloured circles ...except when I tried , mine turned into muddy puddles!! :)

Which led me onto :-
Plan B... this was to still take inspiration from Michele's circles ,but  just to use a couple of punches instead! 

I tried to follow Michel's colours, dots ( my new DP from MFT ) and gold embossed sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

Hope you all have a great weekend ...I'm sooo glad its finally here aren't you? we have had another busy week at work, and to top it off so far this week I've scalded my chest with hot coffee (dont ask how but I missed my mouth and it it poured down my front!) and yesterday it was really wet and stormy and I slipped on a leaf and fell  bruising my bottom( and my pride) and  clarted in mud...I trudged home a sorry sight dripping mud and with soggy knickers !!! :)... thank goodness it was dark that's all I can say! :)

But thanks for taking the time to look it is very much appreciated .

Muse 140

Ardyth is this week's Muse and when I saw her fun panda card I knew what I wanted to use but it didn't come easy I must admit and I ended up having penguins skating in all different directions all over my desk !But finally it came together .
I wanted it to look like the penguins were skating but one fell over onto his bottom and his hat was tossed in the air...did it work??? mmmm :)
The penguins and sentiment is from Mama Elephant and boy was that hat fiddly to cut .I loved how Ardyth has inked her bottom  panel to ground her panda's ,I used chalks I find these sooo much easier to use than inks for this kind of job !

I took my inspiration from :-
The movement and layout of Ardyth's pandas
The black and white focal images
The balloon in the air
Inked bottom panel
Sentiment under the images

I would also like to enter it over at the Playground  as the panel and that blooming hats are all snippets!

Many thanks for coming over and taking a look!
Eliz Stewart love your cute and playful dogs!

The Challenge # 48, CASologyand the Playground

My husband is feeling poorly ...its a cold!:) so we decided to have a lazy day ...Yay means I got to play in between housework etc and I had been browsing through my favourite blogs and I found that The Challenge this week is all about weddings .

Great, I have to make a anniversary card thought that I would give it a go.,,and this is what I came up with so not only made one that said for anniversary I made another one for a wedding day too !.
Must admit on my phone the & in this picture looked more silver than it does on the table top one ..oops but I did stamp the heart with a 'flowery' stamp (clearly besotted) so hopefully that is enough inspiration from the photo to qualify!
My sentiment is from Mama Elephant.

It is also a while since I played over at CASology and the cue word is :-

Perfect so will be entering my card over there too.
Finally I would like to add my card over at the Playground  as I have been playing hooky lately and have missed all the fun behind the bikesheds! :( 
Thanks for taking the time to look

Another week at the Muse Christmas Vision blog and a guest designer ,Brigit has given us TWO beautiful inspirational cards !I choose to take my inspiration from the the one above ...awesome colouring by the way Brigit!

- square card panel popped rather than inverted.
- birds, like Brigit mine are wearing a santa hat and sitting on a branch.
-Sentiment in the corner.

I coloured mine with promarkers and flex markers (prefer these to promarkers so flexible for tiny bits!) and added some 'snow glitter' to their hats.
 I used a new stamp set from Hobby Arts
and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant

 Thanks for taking the time to look
