Some Challenges.

I used the great sketch from Mojo Monday and watercoloured this cute House Mouse image to make this card. The DPs are anonymous! I really have no idea what they are!! The main dark brown one actually has some random flowers on it. I stitched round it and the plain brown ones which had been put through the cuttlebug in the swiss dots folder. Then I distressed round the edges and the dots and rubbed over them with orange chalk. Everything was matted onto the same orange card as the base card. I used my Martha Stewart heart edge punch to edge the lower piece of DP. The spotted ribbon, flowers, jewels and brad are from my stash.

The challenges I am entering are:-

Mojo Monday 103:- Sketch.
House Mouse Monday Challenge:- Song title/lyrics "Love me do"
Die Cut Dreams:- Chocolate and orange.
Whimsy:- Sewing.

I love House Mouse they are such cute stamps. I was struggling to find a song title or lyrics in the ones I have. Most of them are Christmas stamps and I think only one features a Rudolph type, then I found this one and another which seemed a bit big for a card this size!! In real life this card is quite a nice colour, a bit more colourful than the picture implies.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Unfortunately when the weekend is over I have to work full-time next week. For the last time though because I think my colleague will have had all her days. I've got four sets of Saturdays and Mondays still to take and possibly more days when my daughter has her baby. A friend text me and asked if I wanted to go to a crop later this month. Naturally I would lol! I thought I could go on the Saturday afternoon after work but by great good luck I am off that day and so is another friend so we can both go all day - fantastic!!

See you tomorrow.
