House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge


It's that time again for a brand new challenge over at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.  This challenge is being hosted by DT member Sue Drees with a theme of

Circles and polka dot - all "round" fun!

We have some great sponsors this time which are as follows:-

 $25 gift voucher

$10 embellishment package

My card has been made with this cute stamp from the Joanna Sheen "cosy toes" set which you can buy here.    I have coloured the image with my promarkers - this is the first image I have coloured in for a least 2 months!   I have used a few funky fairy printable papers in a baby pink colour which you sadly can no longer buy.  The sentiment ticket is from a fab range over at the Crafty Pad stamp designs which you can get here and I have used half a doily.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  

I have made this for my crafty friend Sarah who is due to give birth to a little girl in about 2 weeks time.  She really has had enough now bless her!  I have all the back pain and uncomfortable, sleepless nights to come - the joys of pregnancy!  I am feeling well though and I can feel that I am slowly but surely regaining my interest in doing stuff - crafty and non-crafty.  It's a horrible feeling not being interested in things you normally enjoy.  I have been enjoying spending time with Tayla and generally taking it easy when I've not been at work.  I am running the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog which I do in my spare time which means I am still involved in all things crafty even if I've not been making stuff myself.  

I hope you're all well and I'm sorry that I don't get to look over all your blogs like I used to - there just aren't enough hours in a day!

Thanks for looking!
