Mouse on the run!

My second card today was made for the "House Mouse Challenge Blog", house mouse stamps have become my new addiction, the images are lovely and they stamp so well! The theme for the challenge this week was an "all white" card. I have never made an all white card so this was quite a change for me. Recipe:
  • House mouse "Bigfoot" coloured with Promarkers & watercoloured back round.
  • CB embossed card (Swiss dots)
  • Die cut Swirl
  • Ribbon,lace,glitter,flower & gem to embellish

Really enjoyed this challenge for a change!


Sketch Saturday!

  • PB stamped image coloured with Promarkers
  • Daisy & Dandelion "winters tale" papers
  • Die-cut greeting
  • Gold brads
  • Holographic card

Hope you like it, I now have a grand total of 15 cards in my Christmas box,not bad for July!

Well two posts in one day is enough for me as I am off to work tonight boo hoo!!!!
