House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ,,,

Hi all :-) Happy Valentine's Day :-) I hope you all receive a card and maybe a lovely bunch of flowers ,,, I haven't got anything ,, yet ,,,I am still hopefull but not holding my breath lol :-)

This week it is Lisa's turn to choose the theme and she chose ,,,

Your Favourite House Mouse Stamp
( it can be a Gruffie or Happy Hopper too :-))

This was a really difficult one for me ,,, I don't have favourites I love them all ,,, so I just chose the one I wanted to use ,,,, !!

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab voucher for one lucky entrant !!

I used this very cute House Mouse Fragrant Shower image ,, this is a huge stamp so not much space for embellies ,,, :-) I stamped the image twice so that I could make part of it into a shaker card without too much faffing about :-) I coloured the image with Copics and added my fave Star Dust stickles here and there, I inked around the edges with 2 colours of green Distress ink. The papers are Kaiser Craft ,,, not that you can see much of it ,,, but it is lovely ,,, :-) I used a MS border punch and a small heart punch to make confetti in the shaker :-)

Our lovely GD Anne aka Stargroves and the DT have all made gorgeous cards and one even baked cookies ,,, yum !! I will pop the kettle on ,,,, :-) Pop by the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them :-)

Lorraine, this is pure purple pretty. Those mice are so cute in the shaker circle, what a brilliant idea! Great sparkle, this is a huge stamp and by using the shaker it has made it so much more beautiful.
