House Mouse & Friends - Autumn harvest


There's a brand new challenge over at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog today.  The theme this time as chosen by DT member Dorte is

Autumn harvest

We have a fab $25 gift voucher up for grabs from House Mouse Designs which are our sponsors this time.

This cute little guy is from the Joanna Sheen "Tumble" House Mouse stamp set which is available here.  I have coloured him in with my promarkers and flexmarkers.  I was trying out a new dotty highlight effect around my image for a change although I'm still not 100% sure about it!
The papers are from the Prima paperstack that came free with this months Simply cards and Papercrafts magazine which I love.  I have also used my new Tim Holtz "Weathered clock" die that I finally treated myself to so you're going to see it a lot so I can justify actually buying it! Lol
This will actually be my last House Mouse and Friends challenge card for a wee while as I only have about 6 weeks left before my baby is due and my priority is keeping the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog up and running so I've decided to take a little break.   

Hopefully it won't be for too long though as I really love my little meeces!  

Thanks for looking!

  12. This is lovely Paula and the weathered clock looks perfect with your layout. It sounds to me that you are being very sensible by slowing down with alot of your commitments. You are going to need to get as much rest now ready for your bundle of joy, your most perfect creation!
