Sketch Saturday and House Mouse Monday Challenges



I followed the sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge and the theme this week on the House Mouse an friends Monday Challenge is to use chipboard on our creations :-)
I love this HM stamp, 'Confetti Rain', I needed to make a 'get well soon' card for a friend who is having an operation today and thought this stamp is perfect, she loves mice and her favourite colour is purple :-)
The DP is by HOTP, Sarapapers, I also used a little bit of coredinations which I ran through my big shot in the swiss dot folder, the gems are Papermania iridescent diamonds :-) The text is printed on the computer and the chipboard label holder is Tim Holtz grungeboard, I hope this counts as chipboard,if not just slap me wrists !! :-)
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Finger's better - now my daughter has kindly given me a flu type bug that's going round. I can't wait to be 100% fit & healthy again. Not used to being ill!!
