Whoops


It's a new challenge on Penny Black Saturday Challenge but you won't find my card there because someone had a serious senior moment or it could wishful thinking but the challenge is for Anything but a card and not Anything Goes.

So as you can see here's my CARD. The little mouse is from a clear set from Penny Black called Jolly Friends. I think the sketch could be Retro Sketch it seemed a good idea but there's a bit too much white and maybe a smaller card would be better.

The papers you should know by now are Doodlebug Here comes Christmas, think I better get another one. The snowflakes are Simon Says Stamp Aubrey and the Stitched Snowflakes.

The sentiment is Simon Says Stamp Christmas Essential which I haven't bothered to put away and is on a clear stamp block ready to be used.

I'm of to a crop tomorrow morning hopefully Mr Blogger plays ball with this schedule post. I'm not scrapbooking though I'm taking my colouring pencils with some Christmas images and my crocheting if I need a break from colouring.

So pretty. Love the papers and adorable image. I think it has the right amount of white space. It showcases those lovely papers and image so well.

This is fabulous Debby and the colours are really pretty. I love the way you have the stocking hanging from the banner, and the beautiful two toned snowflakes with the lovely red gem centres are a great finishing touch. Have fun at the crop and enjoy your colouring and crocheting. x

No Deb, it's not too much white-just think of it as snow! Super cute card. Love the colors and papers, too.

Hello Debbie: I found your blog on Pinterest one afternoon and I was totally blown away by your amazing cards, I love how you give such incredible dimension to the images by just stamping them several times and then fussy cut them and paper piece them.
I went to look at some of the other fabulous cards you've created and I was just wondering if any stamp can be done this way? Are some stamps better than others to achieve this beautiful 3D look? I have some of the Penny Black little mice sets so I'm tempted to try your technique.
I saw your tutorial and it's wonderful, thank you.
