House Mouse 3rd Birthday


No internet for a week!  Its amazing just how much we rely on it now, and only 20 years ago it didn't exhist. Normal life can now resume - after 2  new  modems and a 'Virgin' man.  There was a good side though - no blogging  meant more crafting time!  I made quite a number of cards, and this House Mouse was one of them, it is for the 3rd Birthday of the HM Challenge, where the theme is - you guessed - Birthday - with the option of flowers,  there is a 'blog hop'  and some the original DT have joined in to celebrate, so if you have any HM stamps, join in.
I have used   Cupcake Birthday with Mudpie & Muzzy  image and coloured with Promarkers. The pink embossed Birthday is cut from a CB Birthday folder. Papers are 'snippets' from stash.
I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
  Daring Cardmakers - Birthday (they have a fab prize of a Funky Hand Papercraft CD)
  Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
  Lexi's Creations - Card for a Child
  Stamp with Fun - Anything Goes
  Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Birthday

I would just like to say 'HELLO' to my new follower Craftin Suzie.

Well that's it from me - I'm off on a blog hop!

Gorgeous card Avril! Another fab HM image and perfect sweet and sugary coloured papers. Lovely! I remember one of my university lecturers telling me about this new thing called the internet and how it would change our lives. He wanted me to do an essay about how it could be used in schools. I thought he was nuts because it'd never catch on, lol!! xx
