PaperPlay Challenges - Simons Says Stamp - Cute Card Thursday

MORNING!! Well today is weekly shopping day *big sigh*. The kids have taken to nibbling at the furniture and the cat has gone into hiding after some very hungry looks from said kids, so I figure it's time to get some food in!!

Today I have 3 cards to share... 

First up is two cards I made for PaperPlay Challenges whose theme is ANYTHING GOES. I used some Waltzing Mouse stamps and they are sponsoring this week.

I am also entering into the Cute Card Thursday which is TEXTING CRAZY - they want to see text being the predominant feature on your card.

On this card I used  Rescue Remedies - which are nestie friendly and compatible with Labels Four. I used London Fog momento ink for stamping the sentiment. The papers are Bo Bunny and the ribbon and button are from my stash.

This card was made using the hearts and a sentiment from Sewing Box Hugs. I stamped out the large heart twice, cut the first one on the outside row of 'stitching' and the second one on the inside row. Then I stamped out the smaller heart from the set. I inked them all and layered them - then added a cream pearl to the centre. Then I added some lace and wild orchid flowers to finish off.

I will be entering this card into Wild Orchid's challenge - Lovely Lace

If you would like a chance to win A FULL SET of fantastic Waltzing Mouse stamps then make sure to play along HERE

Next up is for Simon Says Stamp whose theme is GOING DOTTY and Stamp Something Challenges with SOMETHING FLOWERY.

I used a free Kenny K digi image and coloured her with copic markers. I love how funky these images are. I bought some others but I loved this free one too much not to use it:)

The papers are from my scraps box and are a mix of Pink Paislee & Jenni Bowlin. I punched the border using a MS punch and inked all my papers with Brushed Cordoroy distress ink. Again, I used some WO flowers, dotty ribbon and black gems to embellish.

Wow, what a long post! If you're still with me thanks for popping by today. Have a great Thursday and happy crafting!!
