Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party (November – Thank you very much for being my …), Colour Q #216 (Kraft, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, More Mustard), SSS Monday 18/11 (Mystery), SSS Wednesday 20/11 (Sketch)

Monsieur Mojo was a bit quiet this week … till today when he gave me a hand with a couple of cards … one here, and one to follow.  I’ve accepted the invitation to attend the Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party for the first time this month … this card’s for the ‘Thank you very much for being my …’ theme.  It’s also my first time playing along at the Colour Q, where the colours are kraft, pumpkin pie, bashful blue and more mustard, and as WMS and CQ are both unknown to me (and therefore could be described as mysteries!), I’m linking up to Simon Says Stamp Monday where there’s a ‘mystery’ theme.  The layout comes from the sketch at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday so I’m joining in there too.

The feathers are from Waltzingmouse, stamped and trimmed out, and the banners are dry embossed and sponged.  I mounted one banner flat and one on low foam dots, and adhered the feathers with high foam dots along the spines.  The twine was wrapped round the base panel and knotted round the quills of the feathers, and I finished off with the WMS sentiment.

I’m rushing a bit to get this linked and my next card photographed, posted and linked … all before the party finishes at WMS (I have 49 minutes!), so I’ll get on!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight!  Anita 🙂

    Anita…this is just beautiful! I love your feathers, so pretty. So happy to see that Monsieur showed up in your craft area…please send him to California when you are finished with him please. Who ever you send this to will just love it.

    Gorgeous card Anita. Love those colours together – not a combo I would have thought of but they really work. Those feathers are fab with the graduated colours.

    I can’t believe you’ve never joined in at Colour Q before Anita! This is just gorgeous..I love how you’ve done the multicoloured feathers. I’ve got this set too so I may just have to try that. Thanks for joining in with Colour Q this week!

    OMGorgeous, Anita! LOVE the colours, the layout, the feathers (I’m getting closer to joining the trend, but I’ll likely be too late!!), the tags and the lovely font ‘thank you.’ Winner, winner on this one: for the challenges and for all of us who are thrilled to see it! So pretty!!

    This is an outstanding design, Anita! I have had a feather die for some time now and I’m glad to find a design for using it that I like, so TFS!! Great colors, too! Hugs, Darnell

    Wow – the inked banners are gorgeous! How did mange NOT to get blobs of ink where you didn’t want it? Creates such a soft feel to the embossed images.

    The fussy cut feathers….yep, gorgeous….no….beyond gorgeous! Pairing these colors, the feathers with the twine wrap – brilliant! Love the variation of depth that you have captured using the different sizes of foam dots.

    So, here it is again…WINNER, WINNER!
