****Two or more Patterns***

Hello everyone,

Hope this finds you well

We've finally dug out from the winter storm that dumped over 50 cm of snow in some areas 
on Sunday and Monday.  So pretty to look at from the comfort of  home.

Today starts a new challenge at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #543

where our lovely N-Eva has chosen the theme

"Two or more layers"

I had some fun with dies and a paper pad from MFT called Road Trippin'
Lawn Fawn mice stamped and coloured with Copics then die cut.  Sentiment is a SU stamp.


Here is a closeup of my doodling.
 I really was in the groove and might just add some to the inside.
Benefits of being taught cursive I think.

Thanks for visiting today.
Come join us this week..we love to see your creations.

***Checks ***

 Hello everyone,

I'm here to tell you about our new fortnightly challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #540

where our lovely team mate Pat has chosen the theme 

"Check it Out"

so show us your checks, plaids and/or tartans.

No colouring for me today just some fun time with my new dies from Memory Box
This is not a usual colour combo for Christmas but really is on trend this year and I quite like it.
I am a fan of MacKenzie Childs pottery and this reminds me of their Courtly Check.
I pulled out my much loved G45 papers and found this wonderful black and cream check and knew I had to cut into it.  The little acorn is new from MB..a little pesky to assemble but well worth the effort I think.  I also have the larger acorn die set that I will show sometime later this month.  Once again I have used the Stampin-Up sweater embossing folder on the background.


I would like to enter the following challenges:


Thanks for visiting today. 
I hope you play along with us this fortnight.
