House Mouse ,,,,,,, 'Something New' Challenge :-)


Hi all :-) ,,,well that went quick !! one minute we were posting cards and the next it’s all over for another year !! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year :-)

We had a nice little break but we’re back now with a ‘NEW’ theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge !

The challenge is to make Something New eg, New Job, New Home, use a New stamp ,,, etc ,,,, easy !! Don’t forget tho, you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or a Gruffie image to join in :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stampo so a fab $25 voucher on offer

Simon Says Stamp


Pizzaz Aplenty

who will give one lucky entrant a fab pack of embellies worth $10 ! :-)

I went with ‘New Baby’ ! Hubby’s niece has just had a baby girl so I made this album and card for her

For the card I used this very cute Happy Hopper Baby Itty Bit stamp ,,, sooo cute ! I coloured with copics and used a Spellbinders Oval to cut it out. I made the background card by inking white card with Pumice Stone Distress Ink, I used pink gingham and spotty papers, I do love gingham especially for baby cards :-) I used a Martha Stewart scalloped heart border punch, a perfect charm from America ( thanks me darlins xxxx ) and some lovely gingham ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.

For the album I used a Love Bunny stamp ,, basically it was made the same way as the card and I added a charm ( thanks again America) , pearls and I used a Magnolia Heart Swirl die and added a few little rosebuds. I used my fab Bind It All to finish

I made this box to pop them in. The bias tape was coloured with the Pumice stone DI and has photographed much darker than it is IRL ,,,, The tag was made with a MFT Tag You're It set.

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous creations for you to see so please pop over to the challenge blog to see them,,, but before you rush off please leave me a comment so I know that you popped by :-)

Gorgeous Lols. I really love your makes. I think I need to enter this challenge. I don't need a baby card at the moment but it doesn't hurt to have one spare.
