Thanks House Mouse, and Thanks again

A couple of Thank You cards as you can see, using House Mouse. These are part of a decoupage collection. In both cases I've used section 2 of the decoupage pages, leaving the rest to actually turn into decoupage and use on other cards....I like to get the most out of my little housie mousies. 

On this first card I coloured my background with chalks, just a random dusting. It looks better in person than in the pic. In both cards my paper is digital from Bearly Mine Designs, the ribbon binding and yellow striped button is ribbon girl, the flower prima (coloured with promarkers) and the beautiful pins are from Linda at Creative Harmony. Except for the flower, stamp and Linda's pins, nothing I've used is less than a year old, and some much, much older. I'm getting quite good at shopping my stash.

I've used a new technique on the inside. I coloured my stamp with promarkers, then damped the page with a baby wipe. That reactivated the promarkers to produce a 'distressed' looking image. I quite like the effect and think I'll have another play using more than one colour on the stamp. Sorry, I can't remember where in blogland I saw if it was you, please let me know and I'll credit you for it.

Get Well cuddles

A card I made for a little girl with chicken pox, caught from her brother, his card is a few posts down lol. A Mo's DP if you couldn't guess, she's called 'Your my best'. She is coloured with promarkers, and lyca pencils. My stacked up prima flowers are coloured with two shades of promarker, and I've outlined all edges with them too. My sentiment is handwritten with Sakura gel pen. The paper is glittered, get back to you with make, and button from stash and coloured with promarker...busy little pens.

Lovely Linda's Luxurious Pins

No, I'm not singing my own praises, these beautiful pins were made by Linda Burrows (Lindyloo) of Creative Harmony. I recently sent her some of my handmade bits and pieces and she sent these, all boxed up in sets of four, aren't they stunning.

This first four are my absolute favourites
and will be kept to be admired. 

I will eventually force myself to use the rest in projects lol

And this is how they look all boxed up, pretty eh!!

Before I go I'd like to give a shout out for Christine who has just started blogging at Christine's Cards and Crafts. Previously I've seen Christine's projects showcased on Linda's blog, and they are stunning. Hope you'll go over and say hello, we all remember when we first started blogging don't we.

Adding Sunshine to My day.

This fun card is made for the Chalk N Stock #3 Challenge, Bingo. My paper is from the Mystery Pack I had from Sarah Wright Designs. I chalked all around the edges to distress it a little, and also chalked the white card behind my digi's. I merged the Sun digi and sentiment in PaintNet. I coloured Image with promarkers, and Lyra pencils, and outlined my cardstock with promarker too. My stickers, ribbon and buttons are stash. My digi's are a special set was created for Jennifer Scull who is battling cancer. All proceeds from the set will go directly to Jen's family. I know she'd be pleased if you popped over and gave her some some, she's a lovely and  inspirational lady.
