Waltzing Mouse Challenge

I haven't played along with the Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge before as I only have two WMS sets and one of those is a Christmas set and the other is Frame It, but my friend Sharon set a little challenge to join her this week so here is my very clean and simple try!

The star were die cut with  Papertrey dies out of ocean tides felt and paper with a little embellishing!  You can see all about the challenge here.

Big Bold Valentine

Tonight I am taking things big! The challenge today for the next anniversary giveaway is to create a project that incorporates something unexpectedly mega-sized!

I think this is the biggest card I have ever crafted but then my DH does like a big card (he always buys me a larger than A5) and so I thought I'd try and please this year!  The card base is a whole sheet of pure poppy cardstock folded in half with the craft card topped by some of the large images from Heart Prints stamp set.

The hearts and sentiment were stamped in versafine onyx  and I hand stitched the hearts to the craft card with black embroidery floss.  The edge is cut with a Martha Stewart round the page punch that hasn't seen much love this last year.

Thanks for stopping by this weekend - I hope you are having a good one!

Papertrey Frame Tags

It's the frst time this week that I have had a chance to take part in one of the Papertrey anniversary challenges - today it is to make a tag with a frame and the prize is a fantastic set of fillable frames!

I only have one tag die and one of the fillable frames so that's what I went with.  I double cut the tag so I could slide it open for a message.  These are now just waiting to be added as a gift tag to birthday presents.

Apologies for the lousy photo - it's very late and dark and I'm a useless photographer!
