House Mouse Challenge

OMG!!! I won a prize on the HM Blog hop, it was from DT Christine's blog,(this lady creates some gorgeous cards). I won a set of unmounted House Mouse stamps which arrived yesterday, thanks Christine. It was nice to have won from Christine's blog because she is one of my 'special' followers (I say special - because I only have 11 followers and you are ALL 'special')

Anyway, back to the card, for this fortnights House Mouse challenge, its 'Embossing'. I have used a Happy Hoppers stamp - Relaxing Bubbles, this bunny looks so chilled out!
For the little colouring involved I have used Promarkers, chalked the edges and then stickled. I used glitter flock and glitter for the bubbles, they look fluffy and sparkly in daylight, but not to sure if it show in the pic. The papers are the last little bit of a Papermania Capsul paper and although its quite a dark paper, I think it works with this image. Flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts, coloured with Promarkers to match (ribbon from a smellies gift box) and the sentiment is computer generated.

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Challege which is 'Bingo' and I have picked - Ribbon - Embosssing and a Die cut.

House Mouse & Friends Monthly Challenge is Celebrate

Fab & Funky's challenge this week is Animal Magic - and this bunny is magic!

Creative Craft Challenges is Monochrommatic madness - its all purple

The challenge at Fuzzywuzzy this month is Anything Goes - as long as you use an animal in you image

Crafts & Me challenge is monochrome this week so entering there as well!

That's it for now, but I hope to be back later to show some birthday cards I made in November, but didn't get the chance to upload.

Thanks for looking and if you like what you see, please pop back.
