A butterfly - I'll make a butterfly card. As some friends just became proud parents - I feel this represents the fragile,- and the beauty of their newborn and will give this card to them.

A new week and a new WOJ challenge!
The challenge this week at a sketch made by Rachel. I do not have to much fall colors and items at the moment but used what I had to show off the new stamps. Made a little vintage look and sew the edges to make it hopefully a bit more in fall season to match the stamped item.

Just Magnolia Challenge - Week 18

The challenge is "friendship" So anything that I would give to a friend that has a Magnolia stamp on will qualify. The challenge can be found here : if you want to join in on the fun.

I had this notebook just waiting to get into some use - so I dressed it up a bit. As I do not have any Magnolia stamps myself this is one I have traded prints for, - and she's so happy to get into some use.

CardPatterns Sketch 27

Today I went a bit out of my comfort zone. I have seen so many cardmakers using the color lime lately that I wanted to give it a try my self. - And it worked perfect with my WOJ stamps from this summer collection. Sadly my HO2 brush didn't cooperate as I wanted this evening, - so must practise coloring a bit more with that brush. But all in all I'm pleased with the result !
I used the sketch from CardPatterns - to be found here :
Good nite,

Cupcake Challenge # 52

Happy Day - and to celebrate todays challenge over att I had to use the Muffin/Cupcake Mouse from WOJ.
Challenge is to use the sketch and colour theme choosen by Tammy on the design team.
I do not have a puncher or a machine so unable to make an oval look good - a circle is easier to cut - so had to edit the sketch a little bit - hope that's ok ;)
Had a lot of fun on this one and here is the result :

I used:
Stamp : WOJ Mouse, Happy Birthday is cut from "How do you wrap a hug HappyBirthday" a stamp from Penny Black. Colored with Distress Ink refillers
Bazzill : 3 different shades of brown and a pale blue (over the pale blue bazzil I have a see through material in ice blue - might not bee easy to see on the photo) and white
Embellishment : ribbon - Panduro, half pearls - BasicGrey
Thank you for having a look and "A cupcake for the cupcake "
