New House Mouse Cuddlebugs ,,,, :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend and for those of you going to the Ally Pally have a good day,,,,, I wish I was there too :-)

I have made these 2 cards using the new House Mouse stamp of the month for March, this is called Cuddlebug ,, very cute :-)

For my fist card I followed the lovely sketch on the Seems A Little Sketchy Challenge.

I coloured with copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo DI the papers are First Edition New Leaf ( thanks Debby xx ) I distressed all the edges and glittered with Platinum Stickles. I added some footprint twill ribbon and some hemptique twine. The sentiment is from a Simon Says Exclusives sentiment set.

For my next card I decided to make a shaped one :-)

I coloured the image using copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky DI. I used a Grand Calibur and cut out a Grand Scalloped Circle from plain white card and a Grand Circle from Tim Holtz Kraft Core. I used nestie Ovals to cut out the image and mat. The papers are from Stampin’ Up and I added some hemptique twine and a lovely rose from a Prima Londonerry pack. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Thanks for looking :-) These 2 cards have already been received my my 2 friends Vicky ( who bought me the lovely stamp) and Scoopy who bought me a lovely birthday pressie too :-)
