HM&F Monday Challenge ,,, Make a Splash :-)

It is time for a new theme on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge but before we move onto the theme I would like to wish our boss, America a Very Happy Birthday :-)

Smiley from

Hope you have a lovely day with lots of pressies, cards and cake :-)

This week it is Heather’s turn to choose the theme and she chose ,,,

MAKE A SPLASH ,, have water somewhere :-)

Don’t forget to enter this challenge you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 voucher to spend in her fabulous store. Smile

For my card I used this very cute House Mouse Bathing Babies stamp ,, the poor Mum has her hands full eh, I love the expression on the face of the little one climbing out at the front ,, soo cute !! :-)

I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass distress ink. The paper is from SU and I embossed some Whitewash Coredinations with a Cuttlebug bubbles folder. The letters were made using my new Tim Holtz Typeset Die, cut out of cream card and glittered with Star Dust stickles. I added a bias ribbon and made a triple bow with a bow easy and wrapped a brad around the middle, then I finished with a few Robins Nest Dew Drops.

Thanks for looking, our lovely GD's Gill and Kat and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge blog to see them Smile
