Christmas Moose

This Moose just makes me smile when I look at him and he's from Joy Clair Stamps with the fun sentiment to match the trees are from the set too I stamped them in distress they didn't show up very well so I coloured over them with markers. The Paper I stamped on was the backside of some pattern paper I owned and it was a little shiny which didn't really allow the ink dry quickly.  So it could be moved around
I only used ONE colour of Brown on the moose fur and loved how much depth I got from the black ink just tinting the brown here and there. so kewl wish I had more of this paper now to play with.

Joy Claire - May anything goes

This is a prize I won from Lulu there is tons to play with so WOW!!! also there is a score pal on the bottom too.
 Here's a pull back of my space as you can see I'm making some windows again to the left Why I never did this set up before is beyond me it's perfect window to the left and room to cut glass on the right. Love those L shaped spaces . That's window #2 being started out of 12 it looks like but it's going be done over the summer so not in too much of a rush.
 Here's what it looks like all done the glass can't be seen through seeing it's for a hallway so if you want to run from the bathroom to a bedroom naked. SO be it lol, the neighbours can't see nothing !!

Emu vs the Ewe

So here's a clean and simple card I've made just colouring the whole thing up using pencil crayons and chalks for the swirling bg.
There us a little back story to this card. 
I posted this new Digi an Emu in my facebook group its a new image for our progressive challenge and somehow typed in Elmo the Ewe. DIDN'T NOTICE THE MISTAKE !!!  Someone kindly asked isn't it a Emu not an Ewe. OMG too funny I didn't realize that I had made the mistake way to funny so that's how this card was made up and soon an Ewe will be in the shop with Elmo in a new pose or two.

Cards in Envy - Keep it Simple
