Here's my card for todays House Mouse Monday Challenge. I made it very quickly as I didn't have much time. I stamped this cutie mouse, watercoloured and added a touch of glitter to his hat. I cut my tag from some christmassy coloured paper and added ribbons. A couple of embellishments from my bits box and finished with some holly berry gem stones. Thats it! a very quick tag card.

Here's my card for the Sketch Saturday Challenge, it's my first one for this challenge, hope its okay.
I used a Penny Black image, which I water-coloured and coloured in with Sakura Gelly Rollpens for a glittery finish. The papers were again taken from some free ones out of one of my craft mags (I set myself a challenge last week to start using up all the free gifts and bits of paper I already have). I finished off with a bit of ribbon and some Prima flowers with brad centers.

Here's my Penny Black Challenge Card. Hopefully you can tell I chose summer. I used a combination of stamps off the Critters Party transparent stamp sheet and Art Impressions clear stamps. The papers are from the K & Co range with ribbon and Flora Doodles to finish it off.
This is my entry to the Cute Card Thursday Challenge - 29. Lots of sparkle.
Sorry about the photo, this card looks better in real life.
I have been playing with some new embossing folders for my bug, so I used a couple of pieces of card,1 embossed with snowflakes and 1 with dots. I added glitter glue in places for added sparkle. The main image is a snow globe stamp, but I'm not sure what make it is. Inside I stamped a small snowman from the cute companions christmas range. I coloured in slightly and glittered the snowglobe base with a dark blue glitter. The whole image was sprinkled with snow glitter and crystal glitter and then thickly coated with 3D crystal laquer to give a real glass finish. Finally a couple of silver snowflake brads. I'm quite pleased with the finished look although my photography leaves a lot to be desired.

Here is my entry for Cute Card Thursday Challenge 28- Food on card. I have used Cheesecake Party, a Penny Black Stamp and some free papers that I got from a magazine some time ago. I usually use quite light colours, mainly pinks, but decided to go a little bolder for a change.
