Suzie's 365 photos day 177: sizzling

We just happen to be having sausages tonight - low fat, of course, so not so bad for the waistline!, so here is my photo for day 177: sizzling:

Must get back to kitchen so that they aren't burnt sausages!

Material card

I bought this Christmas material years ago and have never used any of it until today:

I've used the sketch for Always playing with paper merry Monday 26:

The material is for Festive Friday 24 product challenge: fabric, also for Tando creative June challenge: fabric.

It's a simple card with the material stuck around a square which was then mounted on to the gold background. The scalloped circle with the little house etc was rescued from a card received a few years ago and the sentiments from stash - I put a small strip of 3D foam on the left hand edge to even up the height.

Why is it that sometimes photos make cards look crooked? And the colour of the sentiment panel IRL is more like the green on the material - ah well!

This is also for:

Make my Monday 55: red, white/cream and green
ABC Christmas: L for lyrics - 'The holly bears a berry ...'

Mouse love

For this card I've used the what if sketch J1312 on The house that stamps built:

The bunting is cut from offcuts of Bo Bunny persuasion my sweet. I used a piece to stamp on to with the lovely Penny Black 'mouse love' and coloured with copics. The epoxy hearts are from stash (can't remember where they came from originally). As I've only used snippets this is another for Pixie's crafty snippets 26.

This is also for:

Penny Black 207: fly the flags
Oldie but a goodie: banners or banting - the stamp is older than six months
Stampin' sisters in Christ 145: use flags or banners
Ruby's rainbow 31: black, white + 1 other colour
My time to craft 182: weddings (think this is suitable with a 'congratulations on your wedding day' insert
Card crafters circle 28: wedding
Just some lines: let's see some wedding creations
Craft room: furry four legged family

Bright dotty birthday

For this card I've used the sketch for Cards und more 58:

I've used hot summer colours - all papers are from my offcuts box, so a Monday morning quick go on the swings in the playground at Pixie's crafty snippets 26.

Colours were inspired by the photo given for Die cuttin' divas 70: summer colours - red, orange and yellow:

The rose stamp is an unknown make that I've had for years - coloured with copics. The sentiment scalloped circle was cut with a nestie; flowers and gems from stash.
