Christmas Meeces

Good morning to you all

Wow is it blowy and wet outside.  A perfect day to clear the ironing, put up the new pelmet in the Nursery and then get into some crafting.  Here is a card that I made for my Etsy shop, using those cute House Mouses.


This is a 6" scalloped card blank


I started with the gold base and added some LOTV papers, before adding a circle layer and then the image which is printed from the House Mouse CD Rom.  I added a sentiment from Wild Rose Studio and finished off with the green triple double bow, a gold bell and a fancy button.  Those other touches the gold tonic pearl drops.


The image is so cute.

I have made the difficult decision at this time to leave the House Mouse Design Team, to spend more time with my new family member Joshua, I am going to enjoy my time with him.  So for this card I am going to join in with the team for their current challenge which is

HMFMC #252 Anything Goes OR Fall/Autumn Colors - I went with the anything goes option.


Do hop over and join in with your House Mouse Creations.

Some Bunny Loves You

Good evening

I though I would just hop on a show you a card that I made for an order recently.  The brief was a Wedding Card with script as the person writes and bunnies.  So here is what I came up with.


So this is an 8" card, I made the blank myself


I went with some of those gorgeous papers from Wild Rose Studio and contrasted these with black card.  I added a row of lace along the bottom and a punched panel down the side.  The panel was wrapped in ribbon with pearl strings on the top.  I then embossed a small heart and layered this onto the larger heart to place on to the card.  I cut the little bunnies out from my silhouette on line store and flipping one to make the opposite side.  I added a little heart and two fluffy bunny tails.  I added a sentiment and then added pearl strings around the edge of the card and pearls everywhere, including a pearl heart.  I added a triple double bow, a fancy heart button and a little silver bell, before adding the flowers to complete the look.  

I love how it turned out.

I would like to thank all of my lovely visitors for their recent comments and have today managed to find time to hop around and visit lots of old blog friends, hope to be doing this more soon.

Well off to do some more crafting lots of cards for Xmas to make

hugs to you all

From the Mice at Christmas

Good evening

I have been merrily working on Christmas cards over the last few weeks so I thought I would share one with you.  I decided for a change to use one of the images off my house mouse CD ROM.  I also used some of my Lily of the Valley designer papers.


This is a 6" scallop card blank


I have used gold mirror card for the layers and added a burgundy ribbon, along with a heart rhinestone sparkler, a gold bow and some florals.  You cannot have one of my cards without those key essentials.  I finished off with some copic coloured pearls to match the burgundy bow.

For a change I would like to enter the following challenges.

Merry Christmas Sister

Good morning

Here I am again with my weekly inspiration from


This time I decided to use my spectrum noir pencils on their own, to get a softer look.

I used
Image and Sentiment - Teddy Baubles


This is a 6" scallop card blank


The contrast on this one is silver, which works so well with the softer cooler papers.  I used a spellbinders fancy grand circle and a plain circle to make the layer and a MFT punched rectangle die to create the layer and cut out the image.  I added a strip of ribbon around the card and added on top of this some pearl string, before adding the double triple white bow, a pearl medallion, a snowflake charm and a glittered flower.  I finished off with tonic pearl dots and some tiny pearls.


The image is coloured in Spectrum Noir pencils, with stickles for the fur and a gold gel pen for the bauble details.

Christmas Advent Calendar

Good afternoon all

What a lovely day it is, not too cold and some lovely sunshine.  I have been sat out on the decking with the girls having a cuppa, watching the day go by.  

Anyway this is something I bought about four years ago, and knew that at some point I would eventually get around to creating it and decorating it.  This year is perfect for it to be used as Joshua will need an advent calendar, what we do for our grandchildren :).  It took quite a while to complete but well worth the work.

So here it is


It is a Kaiser Advent Calendar kit.  Matt and I spent half a day undercoating with spray paint and then adding the glitter top coat.  This then allowed me to be creative with everything else on my own.  I created the paper fronts for the draws by making a stencil on my scan n cut and then creating an inset line, this made a perfect size for the front of each draw.  I carefully cut the centre piece and added this.  I used a die I got ages ago from Simon Says Stamp to cut out all the numbers.  I added pearl strings all the way around the inner edge.  I cut my Sentiment in gold mirror on the scan n cut.  I then added, although you cannot see them some bottle lights, the plastic cork and gubbins is under the big poinsettia in the right hand corner.  I added all of the flowers and once dry weaved the lights around the flowers.  I then added the holly and finished off with glitter on all the leaves.  The baubles are little polystyrene balls, sprayed with lacquer and then glitter added.  I had to put a pin in them whilst I was spraying as they kept floating off.

I love how it turned out.

Anyway I hope you are all having a lovely day, what ever you are doing and thank you to all of my visitors for their lovely comments.

Bye for now

Boozy Santa

Good morning

Here I am again with my weekly inspiration from


I wanted the image to really pop off the page so used one of the plain background papers in this paper pack so as not to distract the eye. He looks so content sat there doesn't he.

I used
Image and Sentiment - Boozy Santa


This is a 6" scallop card blank


The contrast on this little card is silver mirror card.  I have used Sue Wilson dies for the background detailing and fussy cut Santa and his big bottle out to sit nicely on the bottom of the card.  I have added pearls, a triple double bow, a fancy button, two little bells and a glittered flower to finish the look.


The image is coloured in copics, adding a white gel pen for highlights, glitter for the champagne and for the fur.

I thank everyone for all of their lovely comments and I will be back again soon and thank you for taking the time to view my blog, my items are now for sale on my etsy shop.
