Gruffies go shopping and Floral pins and needles

I've got a bit of catching up to do in blogland, so 2 cards to show today.

My first card features a stampendous cling stamp called flower fields ,coloured with promarkers and the edges inked with mustard seed Tim Holtz distress inks. The papers prima botanical collection,free gift with simply cards and papercraft.Inspired by Brenda I've made my own fancy pins with pearls and beads (watch out for the glue gun ,it's hot!). Ribbon, roses and a few feathers complete the look.

challenges entered :

Papertake weekly : pins and needles
2 sisters : in the garden
Divas by design : anything goes
lets craft and create : stamp it

The second card features a Christmas Gruffies stamp, from the Bearlytastic set by Joanna Sheen.I've coloured with promarkers and the super bliny snow is German glass glitter from the hobby house.The paper is my minds eye, winter papers and the berry branch my new memory box die.

challenges entered :
house mouse and friends : double trouble (to feature either 2 mice or their friends)
The crafty pad : to die for
Fab N Funky : use leaves somewhere
card mania :anything goes

have a great day, very dull here, but dry so far. janex
