House Mouse and Friends Challenge Number One


I've found a new challenge blog which is House Mouse and friends Monday Challenge. It was lovely to find this challenge as I have a few House Mouse stamps, they were almost the first stamps I bought when I started making cards and a lot of them make me laugh.

This is the first week of the challenge and the theme is 'New'. I've made a baby card for my entry using my House Mouse Friends baby bunny stamp. The image is coloured with distress inks and cut out and embossed on the edge with nestabilities. I cut a scalloped circle in lemon card which has been scored in a diagonal pattern on my score board, I was trying to get the effect of a baby quilt and I've added tiny pearls in each scallop. The bunny image is mounted on the scalloped circle using dimension tape over the card blank which has been embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. I stamped the Elzybells sentiment in black, added another pearl to the opposite side and pastel organza ribbon at the top. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

Soooooooo beeeeautiful Chris. Just darling.
I love that challenge too but did'nt have any stamps to fit the theme this week. I too like you bought these stamps when I first started stamping. It's great they are coming back.
