Week 190 Theme

For our theme this week we have chosen
For this your card can have any reference to either music or dancing in some form.
It should give you plenty of scope to let your imaginations run!

Here are the examples from us!

 Impression Obsession stamp coloured with Copics.  I much prefer images like this stamped in brown, and have used the same for the SU sentiment.  Edge of card embossed using a portion of an 8" folder

You Rock die-cut sentiment was a lucky freebie ages ago from
Dies to Die for and I've been hanging on to it waiting for the ideal
opportunity to use it ... and here it is.
The guitar has been in my stash for about 10 years! 
Can't remember where it's from it's so old.
For a bit of dazzle ... I've added some nail heads from Josy Rose.

Here is a simple card made with a stamp from Docrafts, coloured with Mirage Pens. 
I loved reading Roald Dahl stories to my kids in school when I was teaching and I'm sure many of your will recognise Willy Wonka from Quentin Blake's illustrations. However, to me he looks as though he is dancing!
The sentiment was computer generated.
The die cuts are Lil Inker and Dienamics with a little of  Couture Creation's Adagio embossing folder for added interest.

As ever there are more illustrations for this challenge on our personal blogs and we would love you to pop by and see those too!

Have fun with this one... Chrissie will be in Guernsey on hols this week so may not have so much chance to pop by with comments, but will try her best.

ShowCASe Week 188

We were delighted with some of the super entries for this unusual colour combo of Chocolate Mint and here are our ShowCASe choices for this week.

What a super simple design, with the sweetest bunny!

We would have liked to have ShowCASed Maria's card number 26 from last week's link up, but her card could not be copied from Flickr!
Well done Maria.

We never fail to be inspired by Birgit's wonderful designs. This is another beauty!

This image looks amazing in these colours. Great stamping Nic!

Please take the ShowCASe badge for your blogs ladies and we hope everyone will be back tomorrow for a new challenge!

Week 189 One Layer Challenge

As mentioned last week we are delighted to have 
as our sponsor once more this month and we are very grateful for their support.
If you haven't visited the web shop do take a look as there are some amazing images.

Our challenge this week is back to one layer once more and we have the theme of 
Any beverage will do; I wonder if our choices say something about us!!
See what we came up with.
This card is me to a T!
The image is from Bugaboo, coloured with Mirage pens and accompanied by a computer generated sentiment in !Paul Maul font.

As you have no doubt guessed I'm besotted with Clearly Besotted
products and even more so when they are on offer as this one was recently.
It's called Warm Wishes. 

I started out by running an MFT pierced rectangle die 
through my Big Shot with a texture plate just to get an impression and add
a little interest to the otherwise plain card blank. Then a little bit of dazzle
with gems and twine from my stash to finish off.
This sentiment, from Acid Drops and What-Nots, makes me laugh every time I see it.  I've teamed it with one of my very early stamp purchases, from a firm called Rubber Romance (promise me you won't Google that without adding stamps into the search!!) and added a stencilled background.  

As ever, please visit the designer's blogs... there are more beverage cards to be seen on each of them and we love to have comments from you too!
