For my card I chose ,,, New Life ,,, An engagement card for my nephew and his fiance :-)

This is my 2nd engagement card this week !! Both are made using House Mouse stamps :-) This one is called Sunflower Smooch ,,, aww soo cute !! :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink before adding Star Dust stickles to highlight. The papers are from my newest Basic Grey Pyrus paper. I used a Martha Stewart heart border punch and a few Kaiser Champagne pearls and ivory ribbon from my drawer. The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set.

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab voucher to the store for one lucky entrant :-)

I made by card using this super cute House Mouse Christmas Treats stamp :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edges with my fave Stormy Sky Distress ink. I then used loads of crystal glitter and stickles for sparkle :-) I made the snowflake using the same papers and a Martha Stewart Himalayan punch, and Woodware punch and smothered them in glitter :-) I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and a ribbon and charm to finish ;-)

Thanks for looking :-) Please pop by the ABC Christmas Challenge to see what the other girls have been up to !! :-) You have 2 weeks to enter !! so plenty of time and no excuses lol :-)
