Simon Says.....Summer Fruits!

I LOVE summer, and nothing beats the fresh fruit you can buy in the summer! So, to honour that, the challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp is to make a card or project using summer fruits or summer fruit COLOURS. I decided to pull out my House Mouse stamps - they were getting a little dusty (I know....SHOCK!!) & I forgot how much I love these little guys!!!!! AND, I wanted to make something different so I made another A2 card box - this time I filled it with cards! It was so easy and soooo fun!!!! This is the second one I made!!! LOL (see earlier Inky Impressions post!)

Here is the whole package - inside are 4 cards & 4 envelopes.

Here is the top of the box:

And the 4 cards that are inside the box:

A stitch in time.... Inky Impressions Challenge

The challenge this week at the Inky Impressions Challenge blog is A Stitch in Time...... you can use real stitching or faux stitching on your project.

I made an A2 box - the tutorial is on SCS and it was really easy!!! I love it, makes a great gift!!!! So, here is my project, an A2 box full of BLING!! This gift is going to someone who reads my blog, so I can't say who it is for (shhhhhhhhhhhhh!!)

Here is the top view:

I used faux stitching because I am too chicken to thread up this little mini provo craft sewing machine that I have - 3 people have told me how hard it is to thread, and so it sits on my shelf!!! UGH!!! Any tips on threading this little baby??? LOL

And - the side view so you can see the pretty little scallops & butterflies!!

PLEASE join us over at Inky Impressions Challenge Blog for this week's challenge! We would LOVE to see what you can stitch up for us!!!!! While you are there, check out what the other Inspirational Inkettes have stitched up for you!!!!! You will LOVE it!!!! If you don't have any of these cuties, you should head on over to the store and get yourself a couple!!!! THEY ARE SOOOOOOOOO adorable!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!! HAVE a great rest of the week!!!!

Janet's Corrosive Challenge #20

This week's challenge on Janet's Corrosive Challenge Blog is DOGS! Well, I had a HARD time picking a dog stamp....I have about 100 to choose from!!! LOL I hadn't inked this one up in a very long time, so I thought I would use this image from High Hopes! Such a cute image! AND Tim loves to take Brick fishing with him, so it reminds me of them (although Tim has no hair!!)
Paper: Pacific Point; CTMH DP
Stamps: High Hopes; sentiment - Our Craft Corner
Accessories: linen thread; fish dies from Cuttlebug; crystal effects on bobber
Here is the inside. I'm not crazy about how the saying turned out (not an even semi-circle) but it will be ok!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great week!!!!
