CUC/DT/The Pixie Cottage ~~Is it Thanksgiving? don't have to check your calendar to see if it's Thanksgiving & I don't think I've flipped my lid.........yet. LOL Although with the cold & rainy weather we've been having here in southern California in May I'm beginning to wonder if it isn't fall or winter. But I guess every day should be Thanksgiving cuz we're so blessed.'s our halfway point for our Craft Us Crazy challenge blog's 8th challenge. We want to see your "Favorite Embellishment and/or Something New". My FAVorite embellie is flowers and my something new is my DP from Bearly Mine Designs. Wowie..........we've seen so many amazing creations in our challenges. I can't believe that we're already up to almost 300 followers.
Our Sponsor for this half of the challenge is The Pixie Cottage. They gave me this darling image to play with. Isn't that little mouse soooo cute with his full tummy. The image is called "Pumpkin & Pie". I tried to give it a Springtime feel........with the pretty DP & flowers.

I powdered the pie with some Doodlebug sugar coating glitter (cuz I love my 'real' pie with lots of sugary goodness) & I used my 'regular' fine glitter on the pumpkin & background DP. I recently purchased that gorgeous DP from Bearly Mine Designs called 'Spring Blossoms'. The flowers in the DP are made by Trina Clark so I also purchased her 'New Beginnings' digital overlay that compliments the Bearly Mine set. Isn't it pretty! I think I'll be using this set a lot.

These are the Copics I used to color my image:
Mouse: W0, W1, W3, R11 & R20
Pumpkin: YR20, YR21 &E53
Pie: E41 &42
Pie tin: C0 & C1
Outline: W00

The Flowers & Bella's Baubles are from my stash & haven't been used for a very long time.
Tsukinek Dew Drop Brilliance Pearlescent Beige on all edges
Cuttlebug embossing folder D'vine Swirl
NitWits DP (dotted peach)
