The lucky winner is Sarah aka Stressed Stamper ;-) Congratulations Sarah !! :-)

The weeks are flying by and it's time for a new theme on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. This week it was our lovely teamie,Heather's turn to choose ,,,

EMBOSSING !! a nice easy one, you can use any House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper for this one :-)

We are sponsored by One Stop Card Craffts who are offering a £10 voucher to their store + free shipping wordwide :-)

I used this cute House Mouse Party Animals stamp. Coloured with Copics and glittered around the edges with Star Dust Stickles. I have had this paper for ages and have no idea who made it ! I used some green coredinations and a Happy Birthday Enbossing Folder. The flower is from a Prima Esprit tube and I glittered a green button with stickles for the center. I used a Martha Stewart Happy Birthday border punch and added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops to finish ,,,,

oooh,,, and I sewed all the edges too. I must say I am quite enjoying sewing my cards at the mo' but really it is because I have almost run out of DSST !!!! I have ordered this FAB ATG Gun ( I have wanted one for ages ) and am stalking the postman every day !!! :-),,, hope it arrives TODAY !! :-),, no more peeling the backing off and having all the mess !! :-)
