I made this card for Cathleen's Hope You Can Cling to Challenge - Sentiments only - where the only stamp you can use is a sentiment. All other embellies are allowed!
I used this great sentiment from Rubbernecker along with Spellbinders Nested mittens - tying them together with rope twine (like when we were kids!) and adding liquid applique 'fur' on the cuffs!
All the edges are sponged with Old Paper ink and the mittens and snowflake are popped up on foam dimensionals. I paper pierced the border. This came out even cuter than I thought it would when I had it in my head!?!

My second card is for the Tuesday Teapot challenge - Cindy inspired us with a black and white teapot with a damask-like deisgn. You can see the whole teapot story here
I used this wonderful Bold Ornament stamp from Rubbernecker and added a sentiment to the center on a punched circle.
I added some dazzling diamonds to give the black and white a little glamour! (can you see it?) This card will be going postal to Joyce and Roy who are currently both having health issues. We hope to lift their spirits a bit with our cards! This also fits Shemaine's Hope You Can Cling To challenge to pop it out - my sentiment is popped up on foam dimensionals.
This also qualifies for the Moxie Fab World challenge - Diggin' On Damask!
Ok - so now I REALLY won't be back until Thursday when I'll have my first sneak peek for you of the new Waltzingmouse stamps! So be sure to drop by!!
