HM&F image folder ,,,

Hi All :-) the sun has been shining all day and instead of spending time getting my lily white legs bronzed I shut myself in my craft room and had a play ,,,, I had the house to myself ,, DH at work and DD sitting her art exam ,,, time for me to have a play with no interruptions !! :-)

I made this little folder to hold some House Mouse stamped images.. now for those of you that have received stamped images from me ,, my apologies ,, I generally just pop them in a boring envelope :-/

I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge who are celebrating their 3rd Blogoversary !! Congratulations to them , it is one of my fave challenges and I try to join in as often as poss :-)

I used my very cute Amanda Writes stamp ,,, this has to be THE most versatile stamp ever ,, just write what the occasion is for and no one expects a mouse to write neatly so it doesn’t matter if your handwriting sucks like mine !! :-) I coloured her with copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. The papers are Basic Grey from the Manila paper pad. I used a Martha Stewart Mouse Halloween border punch. I used some Jillibean Soup twine and I used a button as a fastener so a piece of twine, fastened at the back could wrap around it . The mouse feet are made using a very old Penny Black stamp that I think is retired now ,,, shame ,, Sad smile
