I decided to you a Saturated Canary image today - this one is called Geekin' It and coloured her with Copics. I've used very colourful card today - not like my usual at all - the papers are from one of Simon Says Monthly Kit
This week we are showcasing My Favorite Things products. I had two intending to use - I rushed ahead make the card and Ooops forget to end my MFT dies. I've been a manic week and at the last minute - couldn't restart my card so I succeeded by adding some of MFT Stacking Stars Dies - I love these stars - they are so useful and fit in many occasions!!!
I also added a small wooden ruler - (EDITED -  Maya Road Wood Mini Ruler) I searched the store but couldn't find them - I do know they are there but I ran out of time - I have loosing my internet on and off all morning and started panicking about be so late!!!

House Mouse & Friends.................Mid Weed challenge !!

Welcome back mousey lovers to our Mid-Week squeakkkkkkkkk
We have some more DT inspiration to share with you for our current chall theme of

~No Coloring of Images~
 on a Thinking of You / Get-Well Card

Teamie America Kuhn is hosting and has chosen the new theme to honour our lovely Mousey Teamies Sue Drees and Sue Kment.  We wanted to show them how much we care and let them know we are thinking of them during this difficult time. 


The added Thinking of You /Get Well theme is optional. You can have colour/colours everywhere on your project, or no colours at all. Whatever colorful or non-colorful thing you'd like to do is great, just be sure you DO NOT COLOUR in, or, on, your image.  

Check out the Team's amazing samples to see their creative takes for various ideas to help you get started.  If you prefer, remember that ALL challenges have the alternate option of *ANYTHING GOES* too!  So everyone can PLAY ALONG using HMD House-Mouse, Happy Hoppers, or Gruffies stamps, CD collections or decoupage.

Super Candy prize from AMERICA
She has this yummy CANDY lot of two House Mouse stamps and 150+ charms going to a third LUCKY WINNER...

Well this is a really tough challenge to me - colouring is my favourite part of making a card, so leaving an image uncoloured really hurts me!!! I did end up colouring the leaves in the fish tank as I thought they blended with die-cut leaves around the edge.
The image is from Joanna Sheens House Mouse CD collection - they have quite a few digi stamps. I have linked most of the products although there are some I couldn't link.



I am still sorting out all my 'stuff' in some sort of order - I might be finished by Christmas - If I'm lucky!!!
Thanks so much for dropping by and hope you all have a good week!!!

LIM.........................Animals !!



I've managed another card this week for Less is More but I've shocked myself to be so early. I usually spend several days to decide what to use but this one fell into my hands as I was sorting out and putting away all my images. This week challenge is the theme......

ANIMAL

I have always loved this Stamps Happen Inc image called 'Bluebird' and was a delight to use it again. I coloured her with copics and the Sentiment is by C.C. Design's Amy A.
I'm not sure whether birds and insects are classified as Animals - if not you will have to disqualify me - anyway time allowing I shall try and enter another card if I can find other 'animals'.


I hope you are all having a brilliant weekend and thanks so much for dropping by

LIM - Foliage !!


I've managed another card for  Less is More - I'm determined to make one every week.
The currently it is a 'One Layer Challenge......

FOLIAGE.

I have many leaves etc. mainly by Hero Arts -  sadly they haven't re-appeared  from storage. as yet.  I did have some little House Mouse ones - the one called Fall Flight is also hiding so I decided to use this one Christmas card. This one is called Chin Up and is coloured with Copics. The top sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Like your Style and the lower one from Paula Pascale.

I'm slowly putting my life back together and hope I will soon  normal (whatever that is) !!!
