The challenge this week is to make a card with a secret, doesn’t that sound intriguing, you will find all the information about the challenge at the Drunken Stamper’s Challenge Blog.
I made a simple Birthday card although it took me long enough to finish it. The embossing folder is from Stampin’up and I added some rhinestones to the centre if the flowers. Added some polka dot ribbon and a peel and stick sentiment. I have not used them much except in class. The cardstock is pretty in pink from Stampin’up. Now for my secret you will have to scroll down to find out what it is.
A bookmark is hidden in the slot in the front of the card. I put a pink brad and a scrap of the same polka dot ribbon as a pull tab to remove the hidden sentiment.
Thanks for visiting today and don’t forget to stop by the Drunken Stamper’s challenge blog found HERE and join in the fun.

It is team Flirtini’s week for the challenge but I so wanted to join them and make a Christmas card, it is so much easier if you have a theme to use. The Drunken Stampers challenge found HERE is to use Buttons or Brads on your project. As soon as I saw the challenge I knew I wanted to use my “oldest” and favourite snowman. It is from Hero Arts and was one of my first stamps I bought. I knew that “buttons” would look fabulous on him.

I decided to use one of the “stash” colours and that is my favourite one……PURPLE. I made my card while at the cottage and since it is getting close to packing it in for the winter I have very little crafting things there now but like all places there is lots of stash. Only the image is new, everything else is at least one year old. ‘
The image can be found in here in this section of Bugaboo, they have both digital images and rubber ones as well. Thanks for stopping by today and check out the challenge at Clear it Out.

To celebrate Fall/Autumn House Mouse & Friends are having a challenge to use Fall themed or fall colour inspired projects. A number of the design team posted the image I thought about using so I went to my second choice. Just Dandy from 2009 featuring Monica.

I had a chance to use a Halloween image from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps, it is just adorable, Everything on my card with the exception of the image is from my stash. I used my prisma colour pencils to colour the image and blended it with odourless mineral spirits. The flower was from a prize package I got a year ago. The button from my button jar. I covered the ghost with stickles to make him sparkle.
Thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget to add your project to the Clear it Out blog and you might win digis from our sponsor for this challenge Bugaboo Stamps
