Whiskers And Wings

Hi all, And welcome, it's a new month for Sir Stampalot and Penny Black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Sir Stampalot this month the theme is "Take Flight", So get out your stamps with wings on, and lets see some flying. I decided to use a House Mouse stamp, and it was the first inking of it too, I really enjoyed colouring it with my Distress Inks. I decided to keep this quite simple, and i think it suits the stamp quite well.
We have sponsorship this Month from as always the wonderful Sir Stampalot, and look at this fabulous prize, those papers look delicious.

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

This House mouse creation is for the following challenges:-

1. MAWTT - challenge 157 - Summer

2. Ladybug Crafts - Summerfun

3. Paperplay Challenges - week 31 - Layer It Up

4. Dream Valley - challenge 38 - Die cuts & Punches

And now onto my second challenge creation which is for Penny Black & More @ Allsorts , where the theme is "Whiskers &/or Wings, I chose to use both, a cat and butterflies, So you can use either (whiskers /Wings) for this challenge. I made this card and really liked how it turned out, now I never compliment my own work, in fact i'm my own worst critic, but I do like how this one looks.
We have a new sponsor with us this month called Flonz Craft,

they were really good to us and let the team choose stamps from their shop. I chose and used on my creation the following - Butterflies 01, Happy birthday Greetings Sweetheart, and a Oval Frame with Flowers.
We also have prizes from Penny black, Stampalot, Joanna Sheen and crafts-U-Love.

Morning Tracy,

Two fabulous cards and both are very different despite me not thinking out of the box coming up with two similar themes.

The house mouse one quite delightful and I love how you've kept it simple just clouds in the background and the butterflies to embellish

Colours of your penny black piece beautifully fresh and inviting and such a beautifully coloured image.

Have a lovely Sunday.
