This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge.

We have been given a sketch this week and this is my take on it, inspired by a card on Pinterest just for a change!

I think the snowflake die is from Simon Says Stamp and the sentiment tag is a LOTV stamp, some grey card stock. a little Lawn Fawn twine and some gems from my stash and that's about it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Rudolph Day January Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge - B is for Bows, Bunting or Baking

Good Luck

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, our theme is: Make it Masculine, chosen by ME - alternatively you can enter an Anything Goes card just as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image.

I have used a fun image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Celebration Cardmaking Collection - there are two copies of each image in the pad, I used both images so that I could cut some decoupage layers.

I used papers from Joanna's House Mouse Triple CD and layered everything onto grey card stock and then some pale blue cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Cardmaking Collection and I attached it with a paper clip - the card candy is from my stash.

I have a brand new stamp set the same as the one that I used to make my card for one lucky entrant.

Eggbert Clown

This is my card for the Thursday Challenge over at the Bugaboo 5th Birthday Celebrations and the theme is Send in the Clowns - I have used the fun Eggbert Clown image..

I have coloured him with ProMarkers and cut him out with a Spellbinders die, I printed two images so that I could fussy cut the flower to add a little dimension, I also added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to the balloon and centre of the flower.

My  papers are from Nitwit Collections and the sentiment is from the Forever Friends Good Life collection.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Anyone for a cupcake!

This is my card for the Friday and final Challenge over at the Bugaboo 5th Birthday Celebrations and it is a Recipe Challenge - I have chosen Corn Dogs: Use a food stamp,  I have managed to join in with all seven of the challenges and I have rather enjoyed myself doing so..

I have used the Girl Cupcake Tray image and made another CAS card.  As usual I have used ProMarkers to colour my image and added Wink of Stella glitter to the cupcake icing and 3D Crystal Lacquer to the cherries.

My striped paper is a scrap from Pink Petticoat and I used a Spellbinders die to cut the canopy shape - I though it made it look a little like a Tea Shop.  The sentiment tags are a LOTV stamp and the twine is from Lawn Fawn.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Catch The Bug Friday Challenge - Recipe Challenge: Corn Dogs
Creative Fingers Challenge 64 - Anything Goes

Forget it...

This is my card for the Wednesday Challenge over at the Bugaboo 5th Birthday Celebrations - the theme is Humour Me - as soon as I saw the theme I knew I just had to use my latest Gus image - Gus Wife's Birthday - I think he is so funny!.

I have kept this card very CAS, I coloured Gus with ProMarkers and mounted the image on a matching layer of burgundy card stock, I then attached this to the card base with foam tape, a little
3D Crystal Lacquer added to his glasses and that's it.
