Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens

 
I made this card especially for the current challenge at Fashionable Stamping This months theme is to use the first verse from  "My Favourite things" from The Sound of Music. Of  course ever since reading this I  have been singing that song - luckily for everyone else I have only been singing it in my head!

"Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things"

I thought about what stamps and whatnots I had  to fit in with the theme. I decided to use a Kraft card for the brown paper packages, and tied a raffia ribbon for the string. For the raindrops I used a versamarker pen on a raindrops stencil, and then followed with clear embossing powder. I don't often emboss as I am unable to reach the electric plug, but someone put it on for me today, so I embossed away! I used a cat stamp for whiskers on kittens, and a window outlooking onto a rainy day. I drew a vase and a rose, to encompass the rose in the song.I added a "Happy Rainy Day" sentiment at the bottom.

It is a bit of an unusual card but my Mum is a Sound of Music fan, and she said she would like it!

Mardi Gras

 

There is a wonderful Blog Challenge called Words to Craft By  Each month they give you a poem to create with. This month the verse is 

"It has been said that a Scotchman has not seen the world until he has seen Edinburgh; 

and I think that I may say that an American has not seen the United States 
until he has seen Mardi-Gras in New Orleans." ─ Mark Twain

I have a friend who plays Dixieland Jazz, and he has visited New Orleans many times. I have the trumpet player stamp just to create cards for him! I added lots of streamers, stars and glitter in the traditional Mardi Gras colours. Unfortunately the photo makes it look paler and less vibrant than it is in real life.

I created this card especially for the Words To Craft By Challenge. Why not stop by and join in the challenge too!


Thank you so much for visiting me today.

Pride and Prejudice

 

This months theme at Indigoblu is All You Need Is Love.

One of English Literatures most famous romantic writers was Jane Austen. Amongst many other classic novels she of course wrote "Pride and Prejudice".I thought that it would be fitting to pay a her a special tribute, she did give us Mr Darcy after all!

You can read all the details about how I made this tribute on the Indigoblu Blog
