Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog Challenge No. 40

I like to Move It, Move It,

I like to Move It, Move It

I like to MOVE IT!

Ok, confession – I am a bit of a fan of the film Madagascar and no I don’t have any children so I can not even pretend I like the movie because of them!

This week’s Quixotic Challenge is right up my street:

“Move it, move it”

That means have something on your project that moves in some way… a tag you pull, a flap, slider card, spinner card, double slider card, flower pot pocket or even a shaker card.

Here is my Move It make – Cute and creepy Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp Mitzi Mummy looking for some brains to eat! BRAINS! Mwahaha!

Ok – I’m scaring myself now!


I’ve matched her with the lovely Memory Box Black Bird Papers and used my Shimmerz Spritz paints to sparkle up and darken some floral felt ribbon. The little corner pearls were made with my Viva Decor Walnut Gloss pen.

You can get all these lovely goodies from Quixotic Paperie and the Shimmerz is all on special offer!

Well, what about the movement I hear you ask? If you look to the right of the image you will see the little pumpkin, which comes with this stamp. If you move the pumpkin up or down the Mummy comes alive and starts eating brains!

ARrrrrgghhhhhhh! Ok scared again!


Think I better go hide behind the sofa – that well known technique for eluding scary, brain-eating Mummies.

But before I quiver away, have you seen Amy Young’s gorgeous new Twisted Sisters for the C.C. Designs Sweet November range? Elaine has them all at Quixotic Paperie waiting to be rehomed – they are gorgeous!

Mwahaha!

Quixotic Challenge Blog First Challenge

Today is a special day, it is the first challenge from the Quixotic Paperie Challenge blog, and it is Elaine’s, the owner of Quixotic Paperie, birthday.

So the theme, as chosen by Elaine, is ‘Birthdays’

For my birthday card I’ve used the lovely Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Moonlight Whispers – Francesca with the My Mind’s Eye Wild Asparagus Papers and some ribbon jute.


I’ve coloured the image with Primacolor pencils and sansodor.


The hearts are from the great wooden shapes range Elaine has in stock here. I’ve punched a hole through the large heart with my crop-a-dile and painted the hearts with white crackle paint then painted over with Shimmer Paints Gold Glimmer Blingz and Wed Wagon.

Happy Birthday Elaine
