Everybody's Art Challenge is back - Hurrah!!!

Everybody Art Challenge  is back this week and we are starting gently with an Anything Goes  challenge.
I started with one of the fabulous Saturated Canary image and is called 'Hand me Down'. 
I have been practicing with use pink again - this is a very 'blue pink'  but had the problem of not having the right shade of accessories. 
The card us from Core-dinations and the pattern is a piece in my scrap box. I also added a couple of  flowers and leaves I found negleccted.
The ribbon was from the Ribbon Girl and the pearls from The Hobby House.
I hope you manage to join us with our Anything Goes challenge.

Make it Monday

House Mice go back to school!!

**We are very proudly SPONSORED by**

One lucky winner will get a $25 Gift Certificate to shop at the official House-Mouse Designs store

A Second Prize
In addition, America is giving away this new, unused, hard-to-find, Design of the Month House-Mouse Stamp from April 1999, called "Computer Tutors", and featuring Monica, Maxwell and Mudpie...  This fun prize will go out to a second lucky player.

Another Ooops - I did the wrong challenge -  so this ended up a bit of a rush - not only that I couldn't find the image I wanted - I had it not long since but ???? I have obviously put it in the wrong box. I am so dizzy these days -  I used to be so efficient and organized - ran a business, took card for his and her's children (him as well??) - now I packed it in, took my foot of the pedal and then acquired  Dizzy in abundance ???

My image is cakked 'Mice Penmenship' and coloured mixed media - copics and Poychromos.
I used plain black card representing a blackboard, the sentiment is by Sizzix - I've had for ages and can barely use what it is called - I think it is  'Serif'.
The papers are from 'My Mind;s Eye' - rather bright of me !!!

A Reminder from House-Mouse Designs

The DT's pop along and see the fabulous creations - they put me to shame!!!
I hope you in the UK have a brilliant Bank Holiday and you all have a brilliant sweet.

Bon Voyage

Wee it had been a strange the last few days, I have had an electricity power, no be able to use Yahoo and Google has keep asking to log in every time I movrd.  I surrendered eventually - Google now seems to be OK - perhaps he just heeded a rest!!!
In the meantime I started caught up with some the challenges I needed and make a couple of who are sat coloured waiting to be making into them card and this his one, I can't remember show long ago this image has been waining in vain.

 The image is one of Mo's called ByeBye and I coloured in a mixture betwen Copics and Polychromos.
The papers are from Rico and the hearts are cut by Spellbinders. The sentiment is one I found in a 'Printshop' programme I have - just perfect for the image.
I have missed entering Mo's challenge for ages - I do enjoy it but I can't get my act together - I have decided I really need to re-organise my schedule.

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

The design team  are have created some awesome projects for your inspiration, we are all featuring Sizzix products (all except me - with out being to use a Die Cutter!!), you don't have to use them to join in but I am sure most of you will have something so dig them out and join in !! They have such a wide range of awesome dies and embossing folders :-)

I used a crossover envelope card and added with two little bookmarks.                                                   My image is for  House Mouse and called Mice Penmanship coloured with  Copics.
The basic card is Core-dinations and the dp is Papers American Crafts called Neopolitan
The borders were cut by Martha Stewart's Cherish
 We-r-memory-keepers Crop-A-Dile Eyelets were used for the bookmarks and attached them with Eyelets .  I laminated my bookmarks without out thinking  -  from previous experience I know how difficult it is to photograph  laminated

My last Tuesday post - until EAC resumes !!!

Next week Everybody Art challenge is back with us next week, I'm really looking forward to the start.
Here is my last image - once with a few with die cuts on put main without once my cuttlebug has blown apart.

Image is  Wee Stamp called 'Silver Fairy' and coloured with Copics
The basic papers is Bazzile is the the paper and the old dp are from my stock.
Before my cuttlebug  had it's Hissy Fit I  used a Spellbinders 'Romantic Rectangles' and the border cut with  Crealies, the Cheery Lynn's 'Faciful Flourish' and finally the smaller Memory Box Bella Bloom.
This is where it ends and the small satin flowers in the center of the flowers are some I used when I sold wedding day card.
The ribbon is for lavender/white spot organza from the Ribbon Girl.

 The inside of the card is the same but refereed to colours.


How hopefully my new Cuttlebug will arrive - at least the Postman is - he is getting a little nervous as I have started to 'stalking' him.

Midweek for Double Trouble

These are the two generous sponsors with us for this challenge

Simon Says Stamp

As some of you heard by wails and crying last week - my cuttlebug shot into pieces on the last Friday - although I have manage to replace it but how long before it arrive - who knows ????
Managing without is weird  - I have really had to rethink myself - I have  rummaged around looking for thing to replace my dies.  
My Image is called 'Nose to Nose' and coloured with Copics
The papers are from my 'bit box' and I used a Martha Stesart for the border punch, the leave is a ancient Woodware punch and the crotcheted flower my freind Moni has sent me and I added a pearl brad and metal charm.
I had the lace border and plaited some narrow ribbon to attached to the sentient.
