Using the Negative

How are you?

I have a fun little card for the JUGS challenge which is to use a negative die cut

Moxie Fab World also has a challenge to use a negative die cut and I already entered This card but couldn't resist doing another ... more fun card

... using the lovely PTI 'hello' die 
I cut out the 'U' and the question mark using my cameo and computer generated the text somehow managing to line it up ... I backed the kraft coloured card with a piece of black paper and a small scrap of grey Core'dinations paper

The little mouse which I coloured with Promarkers is part of a digital by Tiffany Doodles ... this is the limit of my colouring skills I'm afraid ... (Keren take note)
Her little tail is just a piece of thin paper which I curled

I just think she's cute!

So how was your weekend? I had a lovely Mother's Day ... Mikey gave me these flowers

... and this sweet little card

... and do you remember my Valentine's flowers? Well I have to show you a photo taken today ... almost 4 weeks later 

Still perfect! A testament to my green fingers? No ... more a testament to how very cold it is in my conservatory!

Before I go I want to just say a Happy Birthday to my beautiful Aunt ... 86 today!
Love you!

I'll be back tomorrow with a new challenge at CCCB ... 
Have a lovely day

Oh, that little mouse is just as precious as can be! LOVE her little bow, too! Happy Mother's Day! And I can't believe your flowers are still so beautiful! My roses wilted the day they arrived. I don't think my hubby will be going to that flower shop again ;).

I always loved the negative shapes of die cuts. These are wonderful cards.
That's what they need, a cool space. The flowers are lovely and happy birthday to your aunt!

Charlene said...

I'm so glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day!! I can't get over how perfect your roses are still!!!

I love both of your cards! I have that Hello and still havent used it. I'm in the midst of cleaning my scrapbook room again and am taking the week off of creating to get it done :-) Have a great week!

She's such a cute little mouse and I love how you coloured her Ros, such nice, soft colours. So pretty, speaking of which: wow, your red roses still look brandnew! Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day. You deserve to be spoilt! Hugs, Ira x

WOW! I'd have to say you have a bit of a green thumb too. Four weeks worth of perfectness is amazing. Your new blooms are lovely too and I am over the moon for that little mouse. So cute peeping out and the tail is genius. Hugs!
