House Mouse & Friends - Flower power?

Hiya everyone, 

As today is monday I have a House Mouse & Friends DT card to share with you.  The theme today as chosen by my teamie Stacy is:-

Joanna Sheen is our sponsor this time with a £10 gift voucher 
to give away to a lucky winner!
I have used this fab lilac image which is just one of the fab toppers on the New Joanna Sheen Triple CD Rom that has just come out!  The backing papers I used are also off the CD as is the sentiment although I cut mine out with a round tag die.  I have also used my memory box corner bow die and my Joy crafts butterfly garden die.  This was actually one of my many samples that I made for the launch of the CD on Create and Craft TV.
Thanks for looking!

Wild Rose Studio - Bella

 Hiya everyone, 

This is one of my Wild Rose Studio samples that I made that I thought I'd share as part of the A little bit crafty "KRAFT it!" challenge.

This gorgeous Bella one is called "flower heart" and has been coloured in with my promarkers.  The papers are from my Wild Rose Studio "Always and Forever" paperstack and I have used my Doo hickey Doily flower die.  The sentiment is a craftwork cards one that I coloured with my promarker to tone it down.

This theme was a great one for me as I love using kraft card.  It's great as it tends to go with most colourways so you don't have to worry about having the wrong shade of whatever you're working with!

We have some fab sponsors of this challenge so there are some fab prizes up for grabs!!!

Music & Lyrics

Hiya everyone, 
Apologies for being a bit absent recently but I've been so busy with DT work that most of my spare time has been in my craft room making projects that I can't share yet.

Luckily, today has a brand new challenge starting over at the Joanna Sheen challenge and the theme this time is "Music & Lyrics" so anything music themed or based on a song title/lyrics.  All the DT were sent some fab house mouse images and I was lucky to be sent this wee cutie.  The papers are from my First Edition "Daydream" paperstack.
Tomorrow there is a new House Mouse and Friends challenge starting so I will be posting another wee cute mouse tomorrow!
 Thanks for looking!
