House Mouse Monday and Cupcake Craft Challenges




I didn't know what Mojo was ! I had heard of people losing it but didn t know what they were talking about,,,, till today ! I think mine went walkies with Jessie and she lost it when she was bouncing through the fields :-)
This card took hours and hours to make ! I know it doesn't look it !!
Anyway here is my effort for the Cupcake Craft Challenge which is to use this sketch. I combined it with the House Mouse Monday challenge which is 'Mother' :-) My mum see's my blog so,,, ' Just that you know mum this isn't for you really '!!!
The HM stamp is a new stamp that I bought from Simon Says Stamps, I just wish I'd bought a few more !!I also used a Penny Black mouse paw print stamp and the stripes on the paper were made using a Judikins bollio, these were stamped with a purplish colorbox pigment ink and embossed with plum sparkle EP. I used pink stardream card to cut 2 frames on my cricut and to layer the paper too, the papers are from HOTP. the text was printed on the computer and the flowers were made with a daisy punch and my cricut machine.
Thanks for looking , I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

You card looks great and I know your Mom will love it. Lorraine I know what you mean about the Mojo. I've been going through that lately, one day it took me 4 hours to come up with a card that looked like it was made by a 5 year old and the next day I turned out 3 cards in an hour and they all looked fab.
