House Mouse & Friends this time is a ' recipe'. Not the usual card recipe where they tell you what to use - Oh no, this one is to include a recipe on you card!
There are some fabulous inspirational cards from the DT and some great sounding recipes with cute 'foodie' meeces. I did think about using my 'Chocolate Truffle' stamp, but this is one HM stamp that takes a lot of colouring, unlike most of the others I have and time is a bit short at present so I decided on a 'different' kind of recipe - A Recipe for Relaxation and used Relaxing Bubbles with Bumble.
I have used Dawny P's sketch over at Papertake Weekly, I paper piece the bathtub and her arm, and she is coloured with Promarkers, I added Glitter flock and Glamour Dust for the bubbles. The papers are from an old Laura Ashley set. My 'recipe' is all my own work!! printed out then cut with a nestie label. The flowers were cut from pages of an old book which was on its way to the Charity Bag, inked and cut with a scalloped circle nestie, bits of net and ribbon, all scrunched and held together with a brad, then spritzed with mica spray.
I am also entering this card in the following Challenges:
Moving Along with the times - Handmade flowers
Poodles Parlour - Animal Antics
Aud Sentiments - Sentiment for a Girl
DUSU - Friendly Critters
Some Odd Girl - Paper Piecing
Oldie but a Goodie - Sparkle
I would like to say 'hello' to my new followers - I can't believe I actually have 61!! I remember when I started blogging and I got my first 'follower' I couldn't wait to tell my family. Now there's '61' , all I can say to that is WOW!! and Thank You.
Its a miserable afternoon here after a promising start, so, I'm glad we went out early this morning ,which leaves me with nothing to do this afternoon but craft and I need to make a Starting School card for my Godson, going to see his uniform tomorrow!
That's it for now and I hope the weather is better where you are and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
