Card pattern #4

Week #3 at Card Patterns was a huge one, with 74 beautiful cards submitted!

Choosing a winner was no easy task, each and every card was brilliant! However, a winner had to be chosen and this week we choose...Vicky! Take a look at her card HERE.

Below, is the sketch for this weeks challenge. Up for grabs are two digital stamps from Sweet n Sassy. The design team members were each treated to a digital stamp from Sweet n Sassy to use on our takes of this weeks sketch.

Now us Kiwis are just not partaking in the fun at Card patterns as yet, but I know you can all do this!! Have a go!

Here is a peek at Sweet n Sassy's digital stamps. Now as I mentioned above, the winner gets two of these - any two of the digi stamps below.

Here is my take on the challenge, now my mouse looks like he is stuck in a trap doesn't he!! I am sure all of you can make a better job of this sketch than I have!

I turned my digi stamp around in Photoshop, and printed it out three times so I could build up the layers and have my mouse popping off the page.

The balloons are also layered and I have added some thread between the balloons and mouse's hand.

I cut the flower and butterfly's separately from the mouse image and placed them just where I wanted them on my card.

Thank you Michelle for the wonderful sketch and to Sweet n sassy for putting up the prise, and thank you also for my mouse, I had fun with this digi stamp and will use it again I'm sure!

Here I am again! :-)))
Cats are fed, but the car was smeared with sludge (the road in the feeding area is going to be renewed, so the rain this morning made everything deeply muddy.) and now we are glad that we are back home.

Now, how cute is this card! Such lovely ideas, like that thread in the mouse`s hand, the stitches at the bottom, the cutting and layering and the mouse peeking over the ribbon. And you coulored so beautifully!
Hugs, Renate

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
