HMFMC #258 - Guest Designer!

Oh My Goodness!  What an honor to be a guest designer for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenges for the January, February, and March challenges!  I do love House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, and Gruffies stamps, so being a guest designer is like a dream come true!  :)

HMFMC #258 theme is anything goes with an optional challenge theme of LOVE!  I chose to create using the LOVE theme.

For my card, I used the Read my Lips House Mouse wood block rubber stamp.  This stamp features Amanda and Mudpie!  To create my card I used a 5 1/2 inch square cardbase, layered a panel of pink cardstock, the next layer is created using two patterns of designer paper, then a doily, a border of lace and the stamped image layered over the doily; image colored using Chameleon Markers.  Embellishments are some florals and leaves from my stash.  To complete the LOVE theme I used the Love die cut from PaperSmooches.

We hope you'll share your House Mouse, Gruffies, or Happy Hoppers cards with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #258 found HERE.

PIP Challenge #1803 - Anything Goes!

This week's PIP Challenge is sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter.  For my card, I used the Love Mice digi image provided by the challenge sponsor.

A very easy card to create using white cardbase, red layering panel, a heart doily, a strip of cardstock covered with a piece of lace.  The bow was created using cardstock and the SU bow maker punch.  A "candy heart" brad was used to embellish.

We hope you'll play along with this week's PIP Challenge!

The Outlawz CAS Challenge

The CAS Challenge this week is snow!  Include something related to snow on your card or project.

I used a snowman family stamp that I've had for many years for my CAS card; images colored using Chameleon Markers; the snow was created using a 2-way glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter.  The sentiment is from Penny Black Happy Snippets stamp set.

We hope you'll share your snow cards with us at The Outlawz CAS Challenge.
