Birthday Thanksgiving + GIVEAWAY

Today is a day that's been a few years in coming. 4 decades in fact. Yes, today is my 40th Birthday. It also happens to be Thanksgiving in the USA, so I also want to share my birthday happiness and thank all of you who read and comment on my blog, watch my videos and interact with me on Instagram. You can read about my Thank You GIVEAWAY below my card :)

To my card! I'm actually getting through my NBUS quite well - just as I get a whole load more as presents - but today's card had to be those Harvest Mice by MFT that I got in my recent win.


I started with a Kraft panel cut with my SSS Stitched Rectangle and stamped the mouse, sentiment and pumpkins, with a bit of masking, in VersaFine Onyx Black.

I then coloured with my Polychromos Pencils. If you haven't seen Stephanie Klauck's recent pencil colouring videos, please sit down with a cuppa and watch and be amazed! 


Mr Mouse's purple shoes were chosen by my eldest who loves all things pink and purple.

I distress inked an A2 card panel with Wild Honey, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade and added the panel on top with foam tape, finishing off with some enamel dots.

So onto the GIVEAWAY! I picked 4 things that I love - one for each decade. 

1. Sven, the Avery Elle Viking.
2. A set from Clearly Besotted Stamps - some cute Bookworms.
3. A Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Crystal Clear
4. Some of Lucy's Shaker Sequins - these are Twinkle Lights.

Here they are


And I'll send them to you in one of my pouches that I've become slightly addicted to making. They will fit Copics, if you have any, and I use mine for taking on holiday with me.

There's a Moose Loose....

Hello there! I hope you've all had a good weekend? I thought I'd start the week with this cheery moose from Reverse Confetti. I am so glad I popped him into my basket over at Seven Hills Crafts back in October as he's proving a lot of fun.



I took some watercolour card (this is Arches Cold Press) and stamped my images, with some masking of the moose for the trees in archival ink. I then did some wet on wet water colouring with my Gansai Tambi paints. I love the slightly messy look and have been watching a lot of Debby Hughes' videos lately.



Once it had dried, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom - don't you just love that pun?? Now the observant of you will notice there is a mark over the word 'time'. Did I boob and squidge my ink? Nope. Once I'd taken the stamp off my block I noticed an extra piece of photopolymer on it. Thankfully it wasn't actually attached to the word, as I managed to peel it off, but somehow during the printing process, it had rolled on top. I will now check my stamps thoroughly before I use them!

A very simple piece of grey twine was attached at the top and I then adhered it to an A2 card base with foam tape.



I've decided to call him Kristoff, and I do hope he and Sven will get on! I'm also linking this up to The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge.
