Birthday Wishes

I need a few cards for my son's teenage friends so I decided to use my Memory Box Happy Birthday Background stamp to make a monochrome card, I think it is suitable for either a male or female.

My papers are from Bearly Mine Designs and I cut the two little banners with my Die-namics Fishtail Flag dies - some pearls from my stash finish this simple card.

Christmas Snowflakes

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.

and our sponsors for this challenge are:

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.
