A few more random cards

I was playing around with my Nesties - curved rectangle set & came up with this card. I just love this House Mouse - it is SO how I feel most days at work!!!! Inside it says "Don't ask, it's been one of those days!" LOL
Another House Mouse card - this image was sent to me from Lena, from SCS - she sent me a whole SCHWACK of HM images....can't wait to colour them all!!! I made this one for my niece, she LOVES pigs!!! I added Crystal Effects on the bottle to give it dimension, stickles to the flowers and my sakura gelly pen to the handle of the bucket.

This is Jack - he is Mimi's friend from Pink Gem Designs in the UK. I just checked out their website and they have some CUTE stamps!!!! Hmmmmmmmmmm

Another one with Willow - nothing fancy about this one, I was just in a Riding Hood Red/Bella Rose kick and this is another one I made!!
Thanks for stopping by & checking it out!!! HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!

Some random cards I made this week

This is Mimi from Pink Gem Designs...isn't she cute? I used Riding Hood Red CS & Bella Rose DP.
This bunny is from Sugar Nellie...cute eh?
One of my beloved Hanglar & Stanglar stamps. I tried a sketch challenge from Paperworks & Co. It was a tough one - I'm not very good with angles!!! LOL
This dragon is from High Hopes - cute eh? They have a whole bunch of these dragons - I love them!!!! I used Riding Hood Red CS and Bella Rose DP for this one too.
Another Dragon from High Hopes. This one is for the High Hopes blog challenge #12 - to use torn paper. The paper is Pixie Pink & Elegant Eggplant CS and the DP is Flowers for you.
Have a great weekend!!!! Thanks for stopping by!!
