Sleeping House Mouse


Hi everyone, a card for Secret Crafter where the challenge this week is 'cute as a button' and also for House Mouse and a challenge of 'Use your junk'. Not sure if I can really justify the junk element as I couldn't find anything suitable and so searched in my oddments box and found the buttons, I actually found lots of buttons in colours I didn't know I had! Hopefully this is ok. The House Mouse image is marker coloured and dotted with glamour dust, mounted on bazzil card and dimension tape, the scalloped quarter circles were cut with nestabilities from Basic Grey 'Euphoria' paper. Added ribbon, buttons and Elzybells sentiment to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

I just love your cards Chris, they always make me go 'ooooh' and 'awwww', lol! This one is adorable and I love the purple card you've used. I think you pass with the buttons, they're certainly junk in my sewing box because I cannot sew for anything! xx

I really must not fall behind with my blog hopping - been a while since I managed to catch up with your blog - love these cards, especially that gorgous spring time one. Those House Mouse stamps are just spot on when it comes to images with pure charm and as always you have coloured it to perfection!
