Stitched Up


I love the WMS stitched tags die and have probably used them more than any die in my stash.  However there are times when a simple rectangle shape is better and in the last Waltzing Mouse PJ Party I saw a card that made me look at my stitched tags differently.  Anya made this stunning card using a cropped tag.   


And instead of using my guillotine to cut a boring rectangle, it made me think of using the medium stitched tag to carry the sentiment on this card of mine.  


Not only did the sentiment fit perfectly on the tag, but I have an awesome stitched detail along 3 edges.

Twice Blessed


I've been lucky enough to be involved in the early stages of a new group of women who are trying to make a difference.  We're starting a new group of market stall holders and by selling our unique products collectively, we hope to improve the life of others less fortunate than ourselves.  
Our charity - Niche Market - was registered yesterday so we are on our way now.  I'm donating this set of cards as a prize for the raffle on the evening of our first event.


The sentiment is a mix of computer generated and selective stamping from the Waltzing Mouse Country Labels 4 and the labels 4 frame is also from this set.  I tried to continue the country theme with some lovely papers in earthy tones, fabulous chunky buttons, twine and a little faux lace.  


On the inside I used a punched grass border along the bottom.

Nautical but Nice


This is a very last minute card for May's Waltzing Mouse PJ Party using two of my favourite stamp sets - WMS Ocean Bound and WMS Safe Harbour.  I'm entering this one in the old Pyjamas challenge.

Squashed Cracker


I have had so much fun playing with the new Waltzing Mouse Kaboom and Half Tones sets but this is the first card I have actually finished.  It looked a lot better before Simon put something on top of it while the glossy accents on the firework was drying.  Never mind, I'll have even more fun making another one, but I don't want to miss the deadline for this month's Waltzing Mouse PJ party so here it is!
