House Mouse and Friends Monday,,,,, Easter Challenge

Hi all, the weeks are whizzing by and Easter is here !! Time for lots of choccy Yum ! This fortnight on the HM&F Monday Challenge the theme was chosen by Scoopy and is ,,,, not surprisingly ,, EASTER !! I think there will be lots of challenegs doing the same theme :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and one lucky entrant will have a chance to win a fab $15 voucher to the store :-)



For my card I followed Marie’s fab sketch on the Bearly Mine Challenge . I used this very cute Happy Hopper stamp, this one is called Egg-Cellent Painting . I coloured the image with Copics, inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added Star Dust Stickles. The papers are my current faves from Basic Grey, these are from the Hopscotch paper pad. I used a Cuttlebug Bubbles Embossing Folder and added a pure silk ribbon, some flowers and card candy to finish.
