Oh NUTS ! I missed your birthday ! :-)

Hi all :-) I hope all is well and you’re enjoying the lovely weather :-)

Another Tuesday and that can mean only one thing ,,,time for a new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)

I LOVE Dawny’s sketches and this weeks is a cracker :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $20 spree on offer for one lucky player :-)

I used this very cute House Mouse Nutty Juggler stamp.



I stamped the image twice and coloured with copics. I then cut out the bowl and a few of the nuts and popped these up on pop dots. I inked the edges with one of the new Spring Seasonal distress inks, this is called Peacock Feathers ,, lovely :-) The papers are from a First Edition New Leaf paper pad ( a gift from Debby xx thanks xx :-) ) and I used some Hemptique twine and a fab Peanut charm from Blue Moon. The ‘oh NUTS’ sentiment is quite big so I stamped it onto shrink plastic.



I finished the inside too ,, the sentiment was made using my Silhouette Cameo machine.



Thanks for looking :-) Our GD’s and the DT have made some goregous cards for you so hop on over to the PTW to see them :-)

Lorraine, this is darling! Your really rocked the layout. Super duper!! And this darling House Mouse image is adorable. I've never seen it before. You are so clever to use the shrink plastic for the sentiment. I'm going to have to remember that when I have too large sentiment stamps.

Hugs,
Jennifer
