Tickling the ivories

'Tickling the ivories' is the name of the House Mouse stamp I've used for this card - I love this stamp, but haven't used it for a while, but when I saw that House mouse 111 was to make a black and white card I thought of it. It was simply stamped with memento tuxedo black and mounted on black card. The background music paper was taken printed My Craftwork Studio tinkering with steampunk CD, changing it to black and white. I then used a couple of strips of Tim Holtz tissue tape mounted on to black card across the top - this is another card for this week's Daring cardmaker's wishi washi challenge.

Simply thanks

This is a simple card using scraps that were still out from making previous cards - they didn't even make it into my offcuts box (although there are still some scraps left that will). Anyway, it's for the sketch for Mojo Monday 225:

 As I used scraps this is my first card of the week for Pixie's Crafty Snippets 5:

In the pink for Christmas

Today's challenge on Facebook's Sunday's with Santa is to use unconventional colours for our Christmas cards. Christmas cards all year round for January are also asking for non traditional colours, so these are also for that.

Paper is DCWV plus Kanban topper, for Catered crop: print, also for Shelly's terrifically thrilling Thursday: text me :


Paper is Basic Grey eskimo kisses plus Kanban topper - colours for Dancing in pajamas TCP 193:

Christmas critters

It's time for a challenge among the Christmas Card Club girls and this time Pinky has asked us to include a critter on our card. Mine is a very simple card, using a Kanban topper. The background paper is another delightful one from Websters Pages (I'll be really sorry when I've used the last of these ... although it will be a good excuse to buy more).  Please click on the links on my sidebar to see what the rest of the CCC girls have been up to with this challenge.
