House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge


Eek!

It's that time again for another challenge over at the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge blog.  The challenge this time has been set by Lori which is:-

Sugar and spice and all things nice

We want to see all your cards that relate to the above sentiment - How you interpret it is entirely up to you!  

I have used a wood backed stampabilities Happy Hopper stamp which is soooo cute and is actually the first Happy Hopper I've ever done!  I coloured her in with my new spring edition promarker "march hare" which I think looks ok!  

The papers are from a new Docrafts Boofle 12x12 pack of papers which I had leftover from a recent magazine piece.  The circle sentiment is one of my under-used LOTV ones.  
 
The white backing card is from a fab new DCWV 12x12 stack of silky smooth cardstock in neutrals which is so lush to use.  It is a great thickness to give great backing but it's not so thick that it'll ruin your Martha Stewart punches which is great! 


We have several fab sponsors for this challenge and some great prizes up for grabs!!!

A $25 gift card from House Mouse Designs

$10 embellishment package from Pizzazz Aplenty

A free class of your choice from My creative classroom

It is quite a basic card which I make no apologies for as sometimes they are the nicest and most effective especially when you have such a cute image!

I have recently been sent some new goodies from Joanna Sheen for my next batch of samples for Create and Craft TV so I'll be starting those in the next few days.  I've been trying to sort though my craft room as it's still in a bit of a state!  Sometimes I just have no idea where to start and it's sooo dull.  I have quite a few exciting things in the pipeline but I can't share them with you just yet! ;))

We look forward to see you take part!

Thanks for looking!!!

  14. Hi Paula,
    Well your creation today may be simple, as you say, but I think it is adorable and I would be so proud to receive a card like that as to me it's simply sweet.
    Hope you manage to get your craft room sorted and create some fab samples for the shows, though I am certain you will.
    All the best Linda
