House mouse & Friends Blog hop



I have been trying to find time all week to make this card, what with daughters visit last week and then catching up with 'normal' things like housework, and a busy Bank Holiday I thought I might miss this challenge, and what a shame that would be with such prizes to be won!

The theme is Goodbye. I have used my favourite HM stamp 'Fancy Pants', she is so versatile, and so girlie! I have gone for a purple theme with Papermania's Capsule Collection for the background and then some matching card stock embossed with Devine Swirls. I didn't have purple glitter card, so made my own with d/side tape and the same glitter I used for her bag and shoes. Again I just had to give her a 'pearl' necklace. The flower is one of the Marianne flower dies, which my crafting buddie Diane loaned me, thanks Diane!

Thats it for now, I better get on this blog hop before I run out of time!

Thanks for looking,

Avril
