Astronaut



   Another Friday means another QKR Stampede challenge the theme of which is as usual - anything goes.
   I have used the astronaut digi and coloured it using Promarkers. I matted and layered it onto silver mirri, black card, cloud mirri and finally white card. The cloud design mirri, although it appears dark in the photo, is in fact paler than the coloured image. I cut a black circle and an oval of mirri to make the 'planet' on which to put the peel off sentiment.

Warming up


   This image from QKR Stampede called warming up made me chuckle so I had to use it sometime for my DT design for their challenge. I coloured it using Promarkers and cut it out using a pearl rectangle tattered Lace die. It is matted and layered onto paper printed using a House Mouse Design CD ROM and blue card. Before matting it onto white card I wrapped ribbon round the layers  adding a bow and a peel off sentiment to it.

Quilted three

   Firstly I would like to thank all the sponsors and all those who took part in the Send A Smile 4 kids blog hop and for all the lovely comments. The random winner from my post is 
Stephanie Johnson
for information on how to claim your prize.



   The new challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids beginning today has the simple theme of anything goes. I like these quilted numbers with the differing animals from Beccy's Place and thought the design paper with the stitching on it was just the thing to go with them.
   The digi image was coloured using Promarkers and fussy cut leaving a narrow white edge before attaching it to the paper which was matted onto green and the white card. The pink sentiment was cut using a die from a Tattered Lace magazine.

Little witch

Snuggling up by candle light



   This little mouse looks so warm and cosy. It is one of the House Mouse designs which I have decoupaged and used it to decorate an easel card. The bunch of holly in the corner was made using a Tattered Lace die and coloured using Promarkers. I then added a little bow to it, Liquid Pearls to the base of each berry and Stickles  to the snow in the image.
