PBSC - White on White!

Good Morning!
This week we have a fantastic theme for you at PBSC, at first I didn't think it would look too good but I can safely say after making my card I am in love with this colour scheme!
The cards look fab when they're in real life I think I may have to do a few more like this!
The only colour you can use on it is on the Stamped Image.
I hope you all enjoy this challenge, the DT work is fab!

I love this stamp I have used, it is one of the new stamps in their Slapstick Range, I also got the one of the 3 mice around the lampost as I adore the small version of it in the T-Set.
I have used some Twinklets on the snowflakes to give extra sparkler but it doesn't show well in this pic :(

* PB 'Winter Swing' Slapstick Stamp
* PB Sentiment Inside & FunkyKits Sentiment on Front
* White & Off White Card
* Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' and 'Snowflakes' Embossing Folders

Creative Inspirations - Decorate A Paper Bag!

Good Morning!
This week at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS we have a new challenge for you all to try ...
Decorating A Paper Bag!
Now I know some people might not like this challenge but there are many ways to do this, I decided to make mine into a Christmas Card :)

This was simple to do, all you have to do is fold a brown paper bag in half so it is 6x6 and decorate the front and inside. You can make a little Tag to go with it but I decided to make one page with a writing space so I didn't need to do.

* Cute Companions 'Let It Snow' Stamp Set
* Imaginisce Papers
* Cuttlebug 'Snowflake' Embossing Folder
* Prima Flowers
* Robins Nest Dew Drops

Thanks for Stopping By I Hope You Join In!

Everybody Art - Halloween!

Good Morning!
Well it's reaching the end of October already so we all know what that means... Halloween!
I loved the stamps that were available this year for it, Penny Blacks and the stamped Images by Hanglar one of my friends sent me.
As you can guess this weeks theme at EAC is Halloween and I have combined it with this weeks sketch over at FRIDAY SKETCHERS.

I absolutely adore the Basic Grey Papers I have used, they are great for this theme as you don't really see many halloween papers!

For the inside I have used the Embossing Folder for the background instead of using patterned paper.

I am absolutely in love with the stamp I used, my fellow PB Team Member Jacqui was kind enough to send me it for my Birthday last Tuesday, Thank You again :)

Hope you all like the card, if the colouring looks a bit pale it's because I took the photo before I put the gloss onto it.
