MCV 68

Over at Muse:Christmas Visions Jeanne has given us not only a pretty in pink Christmas card but a prize to be won too !wahoo

I chose to take my inspiration from Jeannes bauble with stripes peeking through and Jeannes stripey background (although I used white  horizontal stripes ...well it is all about inspiration isn't it ?? ;0 )
I also took inspiration from her snowflakes and gems centres.To finish I used the Merry Christmas as my sentiment but stamped rather than die cut and finally I added the string to my bauble to finish.

Thanks for popping in  by for a visit!

It has been a looong time since I joined in over at CASology and I am wondering why now there is so much inspiration over there!

This week as you can see the cue word is CURE and  after my other feel better card I felt the urge to do another.We know there is no cure for the common cold but one thing you definitely need is a box of tissues!:)

I paper pieced the paper smooches images and cut them out before adhering to foam tape and then matted it and added the paper smooches sentiment to finish it off.

Many thanks for popping in to visit !

Cupcake Inspiration 381

Thought I'd show you a bit more of the sparkle though its much more sparkly in RL!


When I  saw this weeks photo inspirations over at Cupcake Inspirations I was delighted...... one of my best friends has been in a rally car accident and though they are both a bit battered and bruised they are both fine... Thankfully!,( as they were travelling at over 100 mph!! )

So my eyes were drawn to the plasters and the colours and how there was three rows so I took my inspiration from that, and as I will be sending it to my friend who does love a bit of sparkle :) I added a wink of stella and a few gems.
I used a Paper smooches image and sentiment.

Thank you for popping in to see me today!

Cupcake Inspirations 380

I headed over to Cupcake Inspirations this week looking for inspiration and I found it ! 

My stock of emergency birthday cards is getting low so decided to break out the water colour wonder set by Altenew and make a card using the colours.It didnt look right on a white card base and then I happened to notice what the cupcakes were sitting on so went with a coloured card base instead.
A few sequins and wink of stella to make it sparkle a bit and another card for the box done! 

Thank you for taking the time to look I really do appreciate it!

Muse DT 188

My turn to be designer over at Muse !!!!

A dear friends birthday is coming up so just had to make one for her this week , decided to use my favourite at the moment colours of versamagic sea breeze.I  also rubbed it over my bottom mat to so they all matched and then added my diecut flower and leaves before adding bit of bling and liquid pearls to finish it off  .

I hope my card will inspire you to part this week and can't wait to see your creations in the gallery!

MCV 65

This week Kimberley at the Muse Christmas Challenge has given us a really cute and fun card!
I took my inspiration from her white card and circle to begin with, and then i couldn't resist using my Mama Elephant penguins again I just love them they are so versatile !!

To mimic Kimberleys snow angel I had my penguin (complete with red woolly hat like Kimberley's monkey ) jump into the snowdrift (he was meant to slide down it but I moved it by mistake and you would have seen the glue so now hes jumping!!) but I actually think it looks like he is jumping on top of the sentiment now....what do you think??
I versamarked some snowflakes on before applying my blue chalk but didn't like it much so added some 'hailstones' with liquid pearls.

 Well I am amazed how much of my Christmas cards I have made now which will leave me plenty of time to do my 'special' ones .

Thank you for taking the time to look
