Tracey McNeely Premier at Muse #126

It won't be a surprise that I'd want to play cards with Tracey ... though I know she's 'on the move' I know she'll appreciate that I've given her darling Muse card, with blending, a go!

Here is Tracey's card - don't you love it?

 
Not one penguin in the ocean of stamps sets that I own!! I did have another darling set that will do the trick!
 
 

 
Since I've used the MFT Cool Day set with its matching dies, a MFT Stitched Circles die-cut for the shape of my blended-stenciled 'waves' [compliments of the Brackets stencil from ARTplorations]I'm just going to pop this into the mix at the MFT Sketch challenge, too!  [Look really closely - you'll see it, I promise!?]

 
I'm so happy to be on this team with you Tracey!  Thanks for the darling inspiration this week, and I'm thinking of you =]
 
I'm off now to see how Tracey has inspired the rest of you Muse Club players... thanks for stopping by, and for playing cards with us at Muse!

Ugh, now I 'need' yet another set! You make this one look SO good! Love how you created the 'waves' in the background!

Nice! Brilliant use of a different cold weather critter in place of the penguin that Tracey used. Love this little guy, and the hat and scarf color is a great look for him too! Really a fun card and a nice tribute to Tracey. Have a nice cool night. Bev

Love the critter you chose instead, Michelle. You kept the feel of the card, but worked your own magic. I don't have a penguin either! Perish the thought. Must start a new collection immediately! Meanwhile had much to choose from Tracey's card. Love your 'cool' card!

So very adorable. That polar bear has been on my wish list forever and some day I will get him to San Diego with me. Love your soft colors and those waves you have made in the background.

Michelle said...

Super cute! And your waves are fab!

I do like your take on Tracey's muse!! Love that little iceberg - kinda looks a bit like Australia (minus the island of Tasmania)! That stencil looks just like waves too. Too clever!! Nothing like a bit of chilly fun!!

Your stenciled waves look fantastic! I have loved that set ever since it's release and now you've made me love it even more. The little bundled up bear is SO adorable. What a cool card!!!

Michele...just love your card. I have been a fan of this sweet polar beer forever and I just love how you used him on your card. So darn cute!

Your card is adorable Michele and I love the sweet bear:) xx

I think a Polar Bear is a mighty good choice to relate to a penguin! Fun card...nice and chilly, but yet so warm! :) Thanks for joining us on the MFT Challenge Michele! :)

How cute is that polar bear on his ice floe, navigating the waves? Only immensely so! Super take on Tracey's card! I should get this set, as it doesn't involve a lot of colouring...tee hee!
