Mint Magic

Hi everyone, hope you’re having a lovely Sunday! Here’s a card I made yesterday at the Craft Barn and just had to finish off at home today. The cute as can be House Mouse stamp ‘Mint Tea’ is water coloured with distress inks and I added the Mothers Day sentiment, lots of stickles for the steam and some gems to the image then matted it onto Wisteria bazzil card. The background paper is from the BasicGrey Wisteria collection, the punched edge is an MS border punch ‘embossed zig-zag’ and I finished off with a pretty ribbon.
Hello to Fiona, Julie and Sharon, it was lovely to see you yesterday and Fiona, they’re all gone ;D!!
I’m entering my card into these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp ‘Mothers Day’
Creative Card Crew  ‘It’s a celebration’
My time to craft ‘Just for Mum’
TFL and have a nice evening.

Hi Chris,
I'm just back from my few days in Kent, great to see your House Mouse now finished, its delightful. Love the way you've done the steam. I meant to ask you on Saturday where you got the waxed thread you used on your card, (28th Feb)- been looking all over for this.
Glad to hear they're all gone :)
