To the moon…

Evening or morning depending where you are reading this from.

I found some time tonight to make a card for the following challenges

Waltzing Mouse Pajama Party – Sketch challengePAJAMA-PARTY-sketch-2


Twisted Tuesday

2TC58 ~ Primary Colors with Buttons

Grab our badge!




I have used Waltzing Mouse Half Pint Heros coloured with alcohol markers. I cut my shape using Fiskars shape cutter and template – about time they were shown some love.  I sponged using Stampin UP! Pacific Point, The card stock is from My Minds Eye Party Time – something else needing some love.  The red stars are die cut from PTI die in Stampin UP! real red. Lastly the lovely buttons are hand made from Jane of I was lucky to get some happy mail last week. They are lovely and bright perfect for this card.


I have had a great day watching primary school children sing, dance, act and the odd joke at a performing arts afternoon. Miss A did a good job in the choir. Miss S had her first dance concert for the weekend earlier – off to see that tomorrow night.

Enjoy your weekend




Pajama Party…

Waltzing Mouse Stamps are having a Pajama Party this weekend. Last week I received my first order of their stamps so I’m joining in. Warning this is pic heavy!


Challenge 1 – Knot or twine


I have used Half Pint Heroines stamped onto various papers including Kaisercraft La Di Da Collection 6″ paper pad and scrap papers and fussy cut.  I masked the clouds and sponged on some colour. I then used glitter for the clouds – it needed a bit of sparkle! The sentiment is from Half Pint Heros and is punched using Stampin UP! Modern Label punch. I also used Calypso coral cardstock. This challenge needed a knot or twine. I used some twine from the Rusty Rose on the hot air balloon.

Challenge 2 – Nautical


I used Half heros coloured with alcohol markers. I made the life buoy using 1 3/4″ and 1 1/8″ circle punches and scraps of cardstock.  I added twine from Hemptique which is threaded through a button from my stash.

Challenge 3 – Colour Challenge



I used stamps from Teeny Trees stamped in Stampin UP! Basic Black, Pacific Point, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Cherry Cobbler. The mount cardstock is pacific point.

Challenge 4 – Oldest stamp or oldest WMS


I think my oldest stamp is a Stampin UP! wood mount seeing spots. I still use it sometimes but seeing in this challenge I could opt to use my oldest WMS and seeing I only just got mine I had to ink up another set. For this card I used Eat Cake with silver and white embossing powder some punched flowers (punch brand unknown), some rhinestones and Pacific point ink and cardstock.

Another pic – bit hard to get a pic of the white embossing.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping.
