A Christmas Goose, Custard and a Mouse

Uggh it's been a horrible mizzly day today, I don't think I've been across the door!  Poor wee Ruby has been sitting gazing out at the rain all day, she's dying to get out for a bark at the back gate ;)

So today's make is a Christmas card, using an olide Penny Black stamp.  I've coloured him with watercolour pencils and added clear gloss / glitter to his hat, and Spectrum Noir sparkle to his carol sheet and the snowflakes.  Clear gloss also added to his beak and feet.

I couldn't get a decent pic of my cards today, must be the low cloud!
My second card today was sent to my good bloggy buddy, Jo (from Just a Dotty Pudding)  
Sorry Jo, I got my colouring wrong on my kitty ... I forgot that Custard is black AND white.  Doh!
And I got a chance too to fix up my teacher's card from yesterday and put the right name on it!  Do you think I got away with it??  


  1. Hi Lynne saw your title and thought it was a recipe, lol, never tried Goose love custard but not a lover of the mouse......until I saw your card that is, lol, in fact I love all three, the images are cute the card designs are as lovely as ever, wonderful creations

  2. Lovely cards, Lynne, especially the one you sent to me! Just laughing at Lorraine's comment... In our house everything comes 'with Custard!', Jo x

  3. Wow - three great cards in a day! I'm rarely that productive. I really like the layout of your Christmas card. I need to remember the configuration of your DSP strips. They're much more interesting than just ascending or descending.

  4. What a gorgeous Christmas card! The olive music paper looks fabulous with the snowflakes scattered on top. Your colouring is great! Thanks so much for joining us at As You See It this week.

  5. Fabulous cards and yes, you got away with the change of name!

  6. I love all three cards, esp the Christmas goose.
    And yes, you altered your mistake, and turned out even prettier than the orig!

  7. Super cool cards and I love the kitty :-) Sorry your weather is not so purr-fect and I hope poor little Ruby can get out for a bark real soon :-D
    Thank you for purring along to play at SUYP Cats Challenges.

  16. Fab cards, you totally pulled off the cover up too! Cara x

  17. Awww . . . these are all so cute! Love that first one; your little caroler is adorable and I like your take on the sketch. Ack!! You don't own a Christmas stamp??? Oh, the travesty!! I jest (mostly). But this card is super cute! I would never have guess that the snowmen are part of a piece of patterned paper. They fit perfectly in those windows. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.

  18. I'm so sorry if my previous comment had some extra comments that didn't make sense. Apparently, when I copy and pasted the "Thanks for playing . . ." I copied part of a comment I left for someone else. Argg . . . must remember to check those things. So sorry!

  19. These are very cute cards! I love the goose, what a great take on the sketch. The stitched die is so perfect for your kitty! Thanks so much for joining us at A You Like It Challenge this week!
