Hello to all of you out there in blogland - something weird has happened to my blog this morning - not sure whether you have the same view of the page as I do but my pink front has flown away into the ether - there's just a big space there now! Haven't a clue how to get it back so my blog certainly looks different!!! Just opened my blog today and everything seems back to normal yipee!
Anyway I'm posting a card for the Christmas Cards All Year Round DT. The theme this month is 'cute critters' and you can win two cling mount Christmas stamps from Platypus Creek Stamps - well worth entering our challenge eh??
When I thought of cute critters I thought of House Mouse and I do have a 'few' of these unmounted stamps which I don't use often enough. This image made me smile just because of the look of resignation on the hamster's face - poor old thing.
6" x 6" card blank cut from sheet of Centura Pearl (Crafters Companion)
'Christmas Opening Presents' - House Mouse rubber stamp from Joanna Sheen
Decorative Rectangle Layers die - Tattered Lace Dies
Poinsettia dies - Britannia Dies from Joanna Sheen
Small Ivy die - Britannia Dies from Joanna Sheen
Frosty Border die - Memory Box Dies
Small Label die - Side Stepper Card die from Tattered Lace Dies
Papers fro stash
I am loving being a member of this DT - there are some super monthly themes on the horizon which I know you will enjoy and there is the added bonus that you should have some great cards for Christmas, with not so much of the last minute rush!!! Pop over to CCAYR to check out my teamies' cards they're a very talented bunch indeed.
Thank you so much for checking out my blog today and if you have had the time to leave a comment or two, that is brilliant 'cos I love reading them. You all know that I am a bad blogger !!! 'cos I get so into my DT work and making cards (I'm not the fastest crafter in the world and one card will take me 3 or 4 days - a commissioned card could take me up to two weeks) that I forget to comment on my friends' blogs - I do have a look at your cards and tell myself I will be back later to leave a word or two - but I then forget! I apologise now if you have left me a comment and I have not reciprocated - please know that this is not because I don't like your work .. it's just me being dozy and breathing thin air on Planet Susie!!!
Lots of lovaggles and hugs to you all
