House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ,, Lets Get Fruity :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you are all fit and well and looking forward to another week of crafting :-) I really enjoyed the ATC challenge last time and will definitely be making more of them, fab way to use up all your scraps ! Your entries were all amazing and what brilliant ideas ,, it really is amazing how much detail you can fit into such a small space :-)

This fortnight it is my turn to choose the theme ,,,,


there are so many House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffie images that involve fruits that I am sure you will all find one to fit ,, if not you can always adapt and use fruity papers/charms etc instead :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Judy at Pizzazz Aplenty, one lucky entrant will win a surprise pack of goodies worth $10 !! :-)

( I was lucky enough to win the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge recently and won a prize ,, it was fabulous ! lots of yummy goodies for me to enjoy :-) ,, thanks Judy xx )

We are also sponsored by K’nK Designs so some lovely digi images on offer too :-) Thanks K Joy :-)

For my card I used this super cute Full of Hot Air image, don’t you just love all the effort he is putting into blowing out the candle ha ha :-) I coloured with my trusty copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink, I added a few dabs of Star Dust stickles here and there and glossy accents to the candle :-) I cut the image and a mat out using a Spellbinders Wonky Rectangle and added an eyelet to hang a strawberry charm through, the charm and beige twine was a RAK from America xx The papers are Basic Grey from the Life of the Party pack ( LOVE this pack ! ) I tied some Jillibean Twine around the card, made a bow and popped on a button, I then added some Hero Arts Blush Dots to finish.

Our fabulous GD’s ,Gemma and Squirrel and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so please hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them Smile
