Red robin fairy

This time I have played with one of my new DT stamps from sweetpea called red robin fairy (from Elaine Cox' series)

I originally wanted to make it a weddingcard for a blogger. Since she didn't get back to me with her snail mail addy I didn't add her and her future husband's names. Instead I left it blank so it might not look very wedding-like. I still feel like it might be missing a saying or something to the left. I was thinking about writing: "birds of a feather" but I don't know if that saying would be suitable for a wedding?

I like that I used dies as embellishments and not the usual flowers/bling/brads.

I had a couple of challenges in mind when I made it:

Charisma cards - something with a tail (bird)
Creative card crew - cute and girly
Creative inspirations - anything goes
Just girls challenge - wedding
One stop craft challenge - patterns
Simon says stamp - dotty
Stamptacular sunday - out of this world (fairy)

Beautiful blush mouse

I'm so happy to have inked up one of my new house mouse stamps. I ordered a whole box and even if I'm not keeping all of them I've been wanting to play with them.

This is one of my new favs - Amanda playing with blush - she doesn't know where you're supposed to put it, lol.

I'm very happy to have finished a card for a couple of challenges. I'm trying to work on getting my readers back :)
Here's the list of challenges:

house mouse - the letter B (B for blush and beautiful)
colour throwdown - certainly celery, red riding hood, river rock
promarker challenge - green as dominant colour (the pink is just the background paper I photographed on)
midnight madness #64 - sketch
