Flying high

No I'm not taking drugs lol I realize that with a title like that it might make you think that I am...  I came home late again... worked 'til 7pm again... and got in early and ate at my desk... yup pretty crazy time!  Anyway, I figured I needed some craft time just for the fun of it... no expectations, just fun.

So I turned to some new stamps that I had purchased on sale over at Joanna Sheen.  Just loooove that store, free shipping after purchase of £9 including over seas!!!  How fabulous.  And good prices and products.  And super fast delivery.  So yup... I go shopping there... too much actually.  Anyway that's not the point... the point is I got around to using the great little House Mouse stamp set Feathered Friends - Flying high.  I thought it was just perfect to play in the new challenge over at House Mouse and friends which is transportation... and also at the Joanna Sheen challenge which is Pink.

So here's my card with this in mind.

This was so therapeutic!  Love those little mouse ;o) just brings a smile to my face.  The paper is from MME - Ohh la la set.  I used some ribbon flowers and lace that I purchased from a fellow crafter (actually her craft room is pretty much in my now lol - Right Beth?!?).  I added some little pearls from my stash.  I used my petite label 1, label 8 and decorative label 8 from Spellbinder.  The great flourish is Leafy Flourish SD0013 and it's from the new signature series die from Joanna Sheen!  Totally fabulous!!!

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC
I had so much fun!  Feeling a bit more relaxed lol

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. House mouse-challenge - Transport
  2. Joanna sheen challenge - Pretty in pink
  3. Pile it on challenge - Designer paper
  4. Created with love challenges - Anything goes
  5. art - Ribbon and pearls - ribbon flowers here and some pearls
  6. Cute card thursday - Things with wings
  7. Happy campers - Use a stamp
  8. Inky impressions challenges - Animals
That's it for me tonight!!!  Hope you had a great day.  Tomorrow is Friday YAY and it's Labor day weekend so that means an extra day off.... But I'll be going away for part of the weekend... so that means not much crafting... oh well.  I'll be bringing some copics to color at least lol
