Seasons Greetings from the meeces

September 1st and that means the new Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge is up and its "Christmas Bingo" this month! See the attached Bingo Card to the Christmas Thread. I went diagonal with pearls, image and ribbon for my creation.


 These darling house mouse are called Silent Mice. They are colored with Copic markers with a little bit of stickles added to the leaves. Wrapped my ribbon and lace trim which I know... you can't see. That wasn't planned out very well when I was die cutting with my Grand Dies from spellbinders but oh well I know its there. HA! Added my textures with swiss dots and voila! Hope you can play along this month!

Fall or Summer? This is still the question

Our weather took a nose dive into the 80's this week and plans to stay in this range. I guess we are into fall now, yea!  ;-)  This weeks Featured Stamper 395 is Kathy aka Rosekathleenr. I choose this Beautiful Juliet card to case. Kept the over all design, colors, a stemmed delicate image and ribbon. Changed the dies, image and moved the ribbon placement.


My stamp is from Sunny Harvest that I stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. I then die cut using Spellbinders ovals, layered onto a garden green layer of another die. Added swiss dots to the burgundy card stock layered onto the garden green Spellbinders shape. Wrapped the ribbon around the base and tied my bow with a few pearls. Voila! Hope you can play along this week!

Sweet thoughts to brighten your day

Happy Friday! I don't know about you but this week went by super fast! We have a longer weekend being Monday is Labor day so woot woot!!!  Okay onto my card today...


Grabbed my Farmers Market and played with the apples again, this time in green. Yumo!  They are stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. Scored around my border and added a few pearls to the front and dimensionals to the back. I have some fun green polka dotted paper for my background with lace trim and a ribbon bow. My sentiment is die cut with a Spellbinders die and I sponged over the die before I removed the card stock then added a pearl. Voila!


Don't forget about  the Peep of the Week Challenge! You may be selected for the Power Poppy Customer Board on Pinterest, as well as being featured on the Power Poppy BlogAND -- at the end of the month ALL the players from ALL the challenges are entered into a random drawing to win a stamp set of their choice. Would you like a chance to win a Power Poppy set? Again this week it’s “anything goes” as long as you use a Power Poppy image. Remember, there are digis available here so you can have something to play with right away.  That’s actually TWO chances to win stamps!

Have a Grape day


I do like this pun of a sentiment! This adorable fat happy mouse is called Grape Dreams and I am not sure he is even available anymore with House Mouse. Sorry if he isn't. I stamped him on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. My sentiment is stamped with black ink on vellum paper and placed over the image. Really softens up the coloring doesn't it? Fun gingham like general paper for a background with a fancy Spellbinders oval shape for the frame. Voila!  This is yet another card for the friend who does not like mice. hee hee  Although I have to say she is getting a kick out of all these mice cards.  :-)  So have yourself a Grape day!

What do I see

School starting! ha ha  Yep school officially started today. Time sure does fly by when you have fun. Excited for the new year and all it has to offer. The boys are in football for the first time and being that I LOVE football it is exciting to see them play. We found out what position they will both be playing. I have one as Quarterback (swoon) and one as Wide Receiver (swoon), needless to say I am in heaven! They came off the practice field for the first time in full pads... ACK!!! I am going to be fighting the girls off with a stick I tell you what! ha ha  Anyways.... I will have a photo of them all geared up here in a few weeks. Until then how about a cute card?


This darling little guy is called Henry with seagull. I have him on white card stock colored with various Copic markers. Die cut in an oval and popped up on dimensonals. A simple card with a Die-Light Nostaglia  with a ribbon panel cut in kraft card stock and a few jewels added to the banners. Voila!
Have a fantastic day!

FS394 Hot flash or just hot?

This weeks Featured Stamper 394 is Coconutmuffn. I choose this Go For the Icing to case. Kept most of the layers (was a sketch so I removed a few), kept similar colors and a bunny. Changed the papers, layers and omitted one of the ribbons.


This happy hopper is called Air head. Adorable right! I have some sparkle added to the fan breeze as he keeps cool. Tied my ribbon off with a button and twine combo. I gave this to a friend as it was in the 100's and super hot at the time. She got a kick out of it. :-)  Hope you can play along this week! Have a great day.

Fun in the water


If we all looked this cute in the water we might never come out. HA!!  Diver Henry is on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. Fun background using Large Nested Tag Die Light, cut in navy blue card stock. Added some fun colored banners with Small Banners Die Light and some silver brads added. Easy Peasy.
We have football practice, bbq and a swim party today. Full day for us, how about you? Whatever your plans I hope you have a great day!
