Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep

Hi all I made this card for the following challenges:
I have used one of my House Mouse images stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black ink, I have used my fancy square die cuts, my label die cut and bird cage die cut, I have added card candy and punched butterflies, the sentiment is fabric, the papers are Bo Bunny.

Thank you for all your comments on my 'lost' die, I finally found it somewhere I never thought of looking, it was totally by accident that I saw it, I am so pleased I just hope that I don't lose it again, lol.

I have just started doing the second round of my commenting and I was so glad to see that some of you have changed your comment boxes to the 'pop up' style this is so much easier and makes it possible for commenting on more than one card without all the bother of going in and out of the blog.  I love it.
I am going back to my commenting so I will see you all later, hugs to all.

Digi Doodles Shop Challenge #91

Hi all sorry but I am a little late posting my DT card for the new weekly challenge at
 I have been searching all morning for a new Memory Box Die that I bought, I have two of them but do you think I can find the one I  I have had all my craft desk out I have up ended my bin, all the boxes and cupboards have been searched and it is nowhere to be seen.  The dies are all brand new and I hadn't even taken them out of the packaging, I feel like I could cry.  I bet if I order another one, which I will, it will turn up.

Anyway here is my DT card following this weeks theme
Browns and Blues
I have used one of the Body Tot images which I absolutely adore, then are such a fun lot to work with.  This one is called Aunt Venie.
I have coloured her with Copics, the papers are from a Joanna Sheen pad and the brown one is from Bearlymine Designs.  I have added some SU seam binding ribbon, gems, flowers and sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I hope that you will come join us this week at
We would to see you.

I really hope to be visiting you all today I apologise for not commenting yesterday but I was not very well, however, I do thank you all so very much for your wonderful comments on my postings, they are such a joy to read.
Hugs to all.

Happy Birthday in Red and Blue

Hi all today I have two cards to show you that I have made but before that I would like to share some news with you. 
I have been so very lucky and have won 2 challenges the first was Totally Tilda and the second was Creative Craft Challenge, I have been so happy that my cards were chosen, thank you ladies.

These are my two cards
The first card is in Blue, I have used one of my Morehead Stamp sets, I have only used this once before and that was along time ago.  I coloured her with Copics, I used Momento black Tuxedo ink for stamping both the image and the dragonflies.  I used a little TH Vintage Photo ink for lightly distressing around the image.  The paper is from a Joanna Sheen paper pad, I have added flowers, ribbon, gems, tags and sentiment.

My second card is in Red, I have used my Elusive Images Flower Stamp set, another set that i have had for so long but haven't used for a while, I stamped two sizes of blooms with Versamark Dazzle then embossed with Judikins Metallic Bronze powder, I cut all the flowers out and snipped into the petals so that I could mould them this way and that.  The bp is from Bearly Mine Extreme Vol 1, I used a scalloped circle Nestie for the red spot paper, I used a Nellie Snellen flower die on white linen card for the flower to be mounted on, I used pearls for the centre of the flower.  I added white ribbon, butterflies, gems and sentiment. 

The challenges that I would like to enter are as follows:

Well that's it from me today but I will be around to see you all later, hugs to all.

I'm In the Club

The Christmas Card Club that is, lol, I joined some fabulous ladies who have the same idea that I chose for my New Years Resolution and that is to make Christmas cards all year round.  I was so happy that I joined as it gives me that little bit extra incentive and encouragement, if you would like to visit the other ladies their links are in my side bar.
The theme chosen for this particular card is Think Thin, to make a Christmas card that is thin enough to pass through the 5mm limit set by the Post Office, so it will not cost extra if you want to post the card to a family member or friend.  
I decided to use my Nordic stamp set, I told you that I would be using these a lot, lol.
I used the colour combo of Black, White and Red, the white card is Linen effect, I have used Versafine and Momento ink pads, I used the double Reindeer stamp and sentiment that I cut out with a nestie die cut, I punched two holes to thread some thin red ribbon through then adhered it to the card. I did add some small red and black gems but they are only titchy.
I have taken a picture of the side view to show you that this card is definitely thin. 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I hope that you like my card and maybe be inspired to make your Christmas cards all year round, I really do not want to end up buying Christmas cards again, lol.
Hugs to all see you in a bit.
