Rainy Day George .......

Meet George - one of our new range of Molly Blooms rubber stamps - they are really cute!  George has been coloured with Copics and matted onto green card.  The background paper is October Afternoon and the ribbon is twill stripe in Celery Green.  I tied a bronze umbrella charm onto the bow with natural button twine.  I don't do many boy cards and would rather have stuck on some lovely flowers and pearls but I finished the card with some pale lime green polka dot buttons and button twine instead!  Molly Blooms stamps, ribbon, charm, buttons and button twine are all from here. I am entering this into Totally Gorjuss Challenge 'Button It', Creative Card Crew 'Something Green'; This is my DT card for Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge No 6 'Green and Yellow' ; For Fun Challenges - A Bit of the Green

Some little mice for Mary ......

I made this card for an old friend, Mary and just had to try out one of my new Lili of the Valley stamp from their new Spring Animals range.  I coloured the image sparingly with Copics and enhanced the 'icing sugar' with stardust stickles.  The stickles and cluny cotton lace in traditional fan pattern is from here and the flowers and metal corner are from Wild Orchid.  The leaves were punched with my Martha Stewart leaf punch and branch punch.

I also added open weave ribbon in fuschia plus a teapot charm held in place with a teardrop pin  (Mary loves her tea with 5 teaspoons of sugar in it, and yes, she still has her own teeth!!) all from Ribbon Girl then finished with some stick on pearls

The inside of the card was decorated and I used one of the lovely LOTV 'recipe' stamps for my message.  I will enter this into the Totally Gorjuss challenge calling for a card with lace and pearls and Wild Orchid Challenge - a project with punching or diecuts.
