If I was a Mouse....

Happy Saturday Folks.

 If I was a Mouse I would be this one tucking into my bowl of nutella!!!! I love nutella although it does not love my tummy!!! It makes it all big and fatter than usual!! Booooo!!!! But then if you do eat most of a jar with a spoon in one go, what do you expect!!! 
This mouse is my card using  the Progressive Image from Gerda Steiner. The image is called Sweet Tooth Mouse. You can buy him here.  The idea with a Progressive Challenge is that you buy the first image and then play along each month and get the next image from the Designer Free!!!(Thank You!!!) Brilliant and great fun!!!

Where is the Candy... Part 2.

 Hello Everyone,

WOW September already!!! Where is 2017 going to???  

Im  here today with another couple of makes using the Super Cute Where is the Candy 6 x 4 Stamp Set. 
Where is the Candy? 4x6 Clear Stamp Set
For my first creation I have used the pretty Owl and Pumpkin.  I coloured it using Promarkers. I did another monochrome one on the card insert to make it more interesting as well. I finished the outside using the Happy Halloween Stamp too. I love the font that Gerda has used here as it's so easy to read!! 
 I could play all day with Halloween things so I went for a wee Trick or Treat Box for my second make today.  I have a carton die that I ran through my cuttlebug to make the box then colored the Ghost Kitty for my main image. 
I finished it off using the Trick or Treat Sentiment on a tag. These would be great for handing out to all the kids at Halloween.

Where is the Candy...

 Hello Everyone,

Its NEVER too early for Halloween in my House!!!!!! Im here today to share with you a creation I have made using the super new stamp set Where is the Candy? from Gerda Steiner Designs. So Ive a Guest Designer Witch hat on!!!! Getting in the Halloween Spirit!!! 

Where is the Candy? 4x6 Clear Stamp Set


How sweet are these images. They are just adorable. Im sure you wouldnt be too spooked to have them trick or treating you. 


 I decided to make matching background papers with the stamps too and coloured the candy in so the card and papers matched. 

I randomly stamped the sentiment and the candy on the orange card to make a wee pattern. 

I have coloured my main image with promarkers and the sweets on the papers are coloured with Sakura Souffle Pens.
