House Mouse and Friends Monday,,,, Way To Go

Good Morning all :-) I hope you’re all enjoying the long Easter weekend and managing to get in a little bit of crafty time too :-)

The challenge for the next fortnight on the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge was chosen by Sue Drees and she chose

WAY TO GO / TRAVEL,,,,,, ( can be anything that gets you from one place to another) :-)

We are sponsored by our very own teamie, America ,this time and she will be giving away a fabulous HM stamp to one lucky entrant ,,, pop over to the challenge blog to see which one it is ,,, soooo CUTE !! :-)

For my card I used this very cute House Mouse Butterfly Express image, my mouse is hitching a ride from this very obliging flutterby :-) I coloured the image with Copics, then masked and sprayed the sky background with my Copic Air Brush. I decoupaged the wing and glittered with Star Dust stickles.The papers are Prima Sparkling Spring from Crafty Emma’s Store ( these were a gift from Scoopy and Joey xx I used a EK Success Swirl border punch, a Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and a Spellbinders swirl die cut. The pearls are from Kaiser Crafts and the ribbon and flower were in my stash. The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks for looking :-) Our lovely GD's Julia and Avril and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile
