Lip Smackin Relaxin' :-)

Happy Monday to you ! 

Did you all have a good weekend ?? I had a great time ! On Saturday I got out the paints and inks and had a creative day making Gelli Prints and decorating the front of my new Shari Carroll Art Journal and then yesterday my lovely friend Dora, aka Especially For You Cards, came from Malta with fellow crafter Pauline and their respective hubby's. It was lovely to meet Pauline for the first time and Dora's and Pauline's husbands too,,, we did have a laugh :-)  

Anyways , I am here today with a friendly reminder that the current challenge over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is 

MONOCHROME 

this is not as easy as it sounds ,,, other colours often sneak in there when you're not looking,,, haha ,,but try to stick to one colour as much as possible.

Our first Sponsor is the one and only House-Mouse Designs®
Offering a lucky player a $25 Gift Certificate.


Our second Sponsor is the fabulous Joanna Sheen
Offering a lucky player a $10 Gift Voucher.





Our third Sponsor is the awesome My Creative Classroom
Offering a lucky player a *FREE* MCC class
That's Three Fabulous Prizes and that means Three chances for you to win! So Come on and play along. 

Blue is my fave colour ,,,, although I love Aqua too,, must be the Pisces in me :-)

This cute image is called 'Lip Smakin' Relaxin' but I think it must be discontinued because I couldn't find a link for it anywhere :-(   Shame cos it is adorable eh !

Wouldn't you just love to soak in a lovely warm bath of hot chocolate with marshmallows to eat ,,,, YUM !! :-)


I used an Impression Obsession Background stamp and inked with HA Mid Tone Cornflower ink and I coloured all the layering card (which was white) with the same ink as I didn't  have the 'right' colour blue in my blues drawer :-)


Thanks for looking :-) several of the DT have joined in with the reminder so please pop over to  the HM&F Challenge to see them :-)

This is a sweet house mouse card! The shading on your tea cup is perfect and your mouse looks like he is in heaven :)

Your blues are perfectly coordinated and I love the dotted embossing, dotted image frame, and the circles background paper...all perfect.
Thank you for playing along with us at Cut It Up.

Hi Lorraine...
Love this cornflower blue but it is tricky to get hold of! Good idea to colour the layered edge! Gorgeous mouse in a teacup image.

Lorraine, love this color blue (love any color blue, but this one is especially pretty). Had to lick my lips when I saw this little mouse in the marshmellows, so cute. Perfect card for the challenge.

Hugs
