Sketch and Stash and House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenges

I have been a bit naughty this week ,, I have combined the Sketch and Stash Challenge with the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ,,,, I promise not to make a habit of it but time has been flying past and I really need to make a start on Christmas !!! I even have to make loads of cards to send having sold many of the ones I had already made.

We have a lovely skectch designed by the lovely Sue again for the next fortnight on the Sketch and Stash Challenge ,, it is a lovely sketch and perfect for larger images :-)
For the House Mouse and Friends Challenge the theme is

Oh Charming Christmas Tree ,,,, so we would like to see a tree and a charm on your card :-) the tree could be on the paper or it could be a christmas tree charm !! As long as you use a House Mouse or friends stamp too :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp for both challenges so a fab $20 trolly dash around her store for one lucky entrant in the Sketch and Stash Challenge and a House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper stamp of your choice for the HM&F Monday Challenge :-)

You could combine to 2 challenges too !!!! :-)

Don't you just LOVE these cute bunnies decorating their tree with carrots !! I just love the designer of these stamps ,, she is clever eh !! This stamp is called Carrot Tree and was a lovely gift from Heidi a while ago :-) Thanks Heidi xx I coloured the image with Copics and added Rock Candy stickles to the carrots. I think that product was made specifically for these carrots lol :-) I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink . The papers are from a lovely Basic Grey Jovial collection. I addrd Star Dust stickles around the edge of the image and dotted it on the paper too ,, very sparkly IRL :-) The ribbon is SU Chocolate Chip , as is the card for matting ( available from the lovely Mandi aka Enchanted Occasions ) I used a Tim Holtz Ticket Die and stamp from the Odds and Ends set . I used a few Robins Nest dew drops and a punched snowflake with a button and last but not least ,,, the lovely tree charm was a gift from our fabulous and very generous teamie, America. America sent all the DT a lovely parcel recently FILLED with lots of gorgeous goodies !!!

The DT on both teams have made some fabulous creations for your inspiration so please hop on over to see them and leave comments too :-)
