Fuzzy and Warm ,,,,,, :-)

Hi all :-) I am back from my little holiday to the UK, well ,, it wasn’t a holiday really ,,, more a trip home to see my family and do a little bit of Christmas shopping :-)

While I was there I bought a fab new dinky camera and some proper lights for my lightbox, so hopefully my piccy’s will be better !! ALSO I found a little mini hair straightener in Boots with 1/3rd off so it was only £10 ,,, works brilliantly as a ribbon iron !!

I feel very rusty, having had a couple of weeks of from making anything, so I decided to get back into it by making a nice n easy House Mouse card :-) The challenge over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is ,,,

FUZZY AND WARM , if you haven’t entered yet you still have loads of time as it is open until 1st January :-)

I followed the fab sketch over on the Midnight Madness Challenge, America, on behalf of the HM&F Monday Challenge is sponsoring so some FAB House Mouse stamps on offer ,,, neither of which I have so I will be keeping me paws crossed :-)

I used an unmounted stamp from a Fireplace Christmas set, isn’t this cute !! Scoopy used this stamp recently and I loved her card so I HAD to ink this one up :-) I coloured with Copics and added Polar White flower soft to the pom-poms and trims and added Star Dust stickles here and there. The papers are Basic Grey from an Eskimo Kisses pack and I added some Martha Stewart punched holly, Jillibean Soup twine and a Hero Arts Blush Dot. I stamped extra sweeties and popped them up on Pop Dots.

Debby gave me a fab tip ages ago about using an embossing tool on the reverse side of the image to round the images and these sweeties really do look real !!

The sentiment was in the set and I used a Spellbinders ribbon tag die to cut it out. I sprayed with a copic marker using an air brush. think thats all ,,,,, Smile
