Friday again and time to dig out some forgotten item from my stash to make something for Judith's challenge - why don''t you have a go as well? This week I'd been looking through folders on the computer at my digi images and I seem to have loads which have been used very rarely if at all which is a shame as I bought them because I liked them at the time. This giraffe is from Pink Gem Designs; background papers are from my stash; I've added a ribbon with daisies and punched out some little daisies to match. along with leaves using a Stampin Up punch.

I was asked to make a Golden Wedding Aniversary card recently and for this I printed a background paper onto gold pearlised paper from Decadent Brocade CD and stamped and gold embossed two hearts using Damask Hearts stamps - both products from Chocolate Baroque. A piece of toning card was embossed using a heart Cuttlebug embossing folder and then sprayed with gold Glimmer Mist.. Sentiment and the number were produced on the computer. I've been a bit quiet on the blog this week because I've been concentrating on playing catch-up with a mystery quilt project which I should have started in January when we had the first set of instructions and I purchased the fabric. Thankfully I am almost there now and will take a photograph when it is completed.

The Make My Monday challenge this week is still on the vintage theme but this week they are asking for embossing and I've included both dry and heat embossing. Background paper is by Basic Grey - a pad which I've had a long time and it has been overstamped with small stamps from Paper Artsy and Chocolate Baroque to give it a more vintage look. The dry embossing is done with a Tim Holtz folder; the main image from Paper Artsy was stamped with Distress ink and clear embossed; the border was cut using a TH Sizzix die and the ticket sentiment cut with a TH Sizzix die also. I thought I'd go for the male vintage look this week for a change instead of using lace and flowers.

The folks at Humbug Hall this week are asking for meeces looking seasonal and I remembered there was a cute mouse on Polkadoodles Magical Winter CD so how lucky was that because I'm sure I don't have any Christmas mouse stamps. I printed the image twice so that I could cut part of the mouse out and layer it; background papers are from the CD and I've just added a few die cut poinsettias and a swirl.
