House Mouse and Friends Thankful Challenge

Hi all :-)

The challenge for the next fortnight on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge was chosen by the lovely Stacy and she chose ,,,

Thank You/Thankful Cards/creations :-)

We all need to keep a few of these handy eh ! :-)

All you have to do is make something to fit the theme and make sure you use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image :-)

We have 2 wonderful sponsors this week ! :-)

PRIZE ; A $15 Gift Card PRIZE to the Simon Says Stamp store!


PRIZE ; $10 of embellishments from Pizzazz Aplenty

We have 2 fabulous Guest Designers joining us for November, welcome aboard Julia and NanaConnie :-)

I love this Amanda Writes stamp, it is so versatile you can use it for any occasion,, just write what you like !! Happy Birthday, ‘Hello’, Merry Christmas even !! I coloured with Copics and used a glaze pen on the fountain pen. I scored 2 lines across the bottom and stamped a continuous ‘Just a note to say’ in between them. The papers are from SU ( thanks Mandy) and I used a Sizzix Dots folder and a Martha Stewart border punch for the strip. I had some navy ribbon in my drawer and I used a red button, some black twine and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops. I wrote ‘thanks’, not too neatly ( yes deliberately !!! ) and faux stitched the edge ,,, added some Star Dust stickles to finish.:-)

Thanks for looking :-) Julia, Connie and the DT have all made fabulous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.
