Play it again.....

Evening Folks!
I managed to get a little time to play today and I'm squeaking in at the last minute for another challenge!! This one is for one of my fav challenges - House Mouse and Friends, where they'd like to see you ink up a stamp you haven't used before. Now, I must confess there are quite a few in my HM collection that fall in to that category so it was a tough choice!! This one is from a Joanna Sheen set called Friends like you.

I just love the look of concentration on his face as he thumps the keys!! Pretty much my own piano playing style!
He is of course coloured with promarkers (nearly all the shades of grey!!) and the papers are mainly papermania capsule collection.

Thanks for visiting and for any comments you leave!!
I'd also like to enter the challenges at:
Crafty Cardmakers - Black and white
Craft your passion - Face the music
Papertake weekly - Bow Dies
Passion for promarkers - Ribbon, lace or twine 
Gruffies and guests - Anything goes

Buddy's Balloon

Afternoon Folks!
A quick post from me today, I want to enter the Winter Wonderland challenge that finishes tonight!! 
My mojo has been hiding for a while so I tried to tempt it to play by buying a new digi stamp at the weekend - it's called Buddy's Balloon from Bunny Zoes - so cute! Here's my card, quite simple but at least I made something instead of throwing it in the bin!!

All the papers are from my scraps box and I've paper pieced the balloon! the sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Thanks for visiting today!!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland - A dog is not just for Christmas
That Craft Place - Colour palette

The squirrel and the fox - New stuff (new digi)
Stampin for the weekend - Happy Birthday
Aud Sentiments - Any sentiment
Without words - Spots and / or stripes
& Sweet Stampin' - Your favourite style - I think this card shows my favourite style - quite CAS with few embellishments, an animal or bear stamp,  and promarkers to colour!

Edited to Add: Top 3 pick at
