More Mice - PIP Challenge

Here's some more mice for you - and just in time for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge too!  It's an Anything Goes challenge so be sure and enter your card or project for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from Di' Digi's!

I used one of Di's Digi's images on my card and kept it very simple.  It's colored in Copics and then mounted on some red and white candy stripe type paper - and a piece of twine added.  As I said, very simple - but still think it makes for a cute card for the holidays.  Gotta love those mice!

T Day is Almost Here

Thanksgiving is almost here.  All the turkeys are heading for the hills to escape the butcher.  However, some of them have gone into disguise.  This one is pretty sure he's still going to be around next year since he has his Groucho Marx disguise on.  (If you don't know who Groucho is, look it up and you'll see what I'm talking about - and yes, I just gave you a hint of my age too.  Yikes)!!!

I used this same design on a Thanksgiving card last year but with a different turkey.  It's almost time to get them in the mail so I basically just "CASED" myself I guess.  The turkey is from Art Impressions and all the paper I used was just some scraps.   Another one of my "git 'er done cards". 

I'll enter this in the challenge at Paper Funday Challenges (Anything goes with twist: Thanksgiving)

Thanks for stopping by..............and have a nice weekend.

Moldy Green Cheese Trees

I made two cards similar to this and then realized, well DUH!!!!!  That's cheese for the Christmas trees and should be the color of the cheese.  UGH!  Just think of them as being moldy cheese trees.   YES! 

The stamp set is from Sunny Studio and I fell in love with it as soon as it was released.  There's just something about mice and Christmas......not sure what that something is, but I love it.  The "snowflakes" in the background are from a Lawn Fawn die and the sentiment from Taylored Expressions.

So, no matter - green cheese trees (trying saying that real fast a couple of times!!!!!) or cheesy looking trees, we still have a Christmas card.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).

On The Road At Christmas........Jan's Digi's

 This is my second post for today................

There's a new challenge - in fact, it's the very FIRST challenge - over at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge!  Yep, new challenge and my first post as a design team member for this very talented artist.  Yahoo!!   Some of you may have seen her work when Sparkle and Sprinkle blog was around. 

We're very excited to begin showcasing Jan's digi's with this new challenge. It's an Anything Goes challenge so stop by and enter your card or project for a chance to win.  Also become a follower if you wish and then keep coming back for more fun challenges.

For my cards today I used Over the River digi stamp.    Her stamps come in pre-colored or black and white.  For my cards today I used the pre-colored version because there's just too pretty not to!  I went over them with colored pencils to make them pop a little and that was it.

Jan's Over the River set is so pretty and I know you'd enjoy making some wonderful cards for Christmas using it.

Be sure and check out our new challenge HERE and Jan's shop HERE.

Fun Elf - PIP Challenges

It's time again for another fun challenge from Pammie's Inky Pinkies!  It's Anything Goes so stop by and enter your card or project.  The winner of this challenge will receive a gift code to use at Mo's Digital Pencil!

I used one of Mo's images for my card today.  Isn't that just about the cutest little elf ever!  Loving those pointed ears!!  It's colored in Copics and then I used a Taylored Expression strip sentiment.

I got this whole thing done, snapped x number of pictures trying to get everything done just right, got it uploaded to the blog - and OMGoodness!  We have a burned out bulb!!!    I just noticed I colored all the light bulbs on the string - except for one.  I'm so thankful the entire string didn't go out with it like they do in real life!

Thanks for stopping by.........and head on over and enter at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge!

A Girl and a Deer - 2 CCC

It's time for another challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  It's always an Anything Goes as long as you use some type of critter on your card or project.  Super easy since we all love the critters!  We're being sponsored this time by The Paper Shelter who so graciously provided images for the design team.

I kept my card very simple today using Holy Night.  The image is colored in Copics although this image does come in the colored version also.   I added glitter to the ground, tree, and snowflakes.  The background paper is from a piece that I had in my stash and no idea where it came from.  I finished it off with some ribbon and pieces of gold twine.

Happy Hallo-weenie!!!

It's a Fun Friday - and it's not even Friday yet!  It's Halloween - or as Rambo says, Hallo-weenie!  I'd been looking for him a light weight t-shirt to wear in the house when it's chilly and finally found this one at a local pet store.  He already has a sweater but needed something light weight.  Like it or not he's getting older and just like a little old man, his hair is starting to thin out some.

He doesn't look happy at all in this picture but he LOVES his t-shirt.  The Trick or Treat words even glow at night.  He really thinks he's sharp looking - and he is!

And since we're talking about weenies...................Um..........

A very CAS card for this Halloween.  I used a stamp from Chicken Girl Design - who is sadly no longer in business.  This was one of the first stamp sets I bought on-line and of course it's filled with tiny little dachshunds.  Love it! 

So, Happy Halloween or Happy Hallo-weenie - whichever you prefer.  Have a great day!
