eek ,,, midway reminder for the House Mouse ‘Grab some Tea for an Anything Goes Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) did you have a nice weekend ?? I hope so :-) I had a nice time experimenting with my Silhouette Cameo machine, I didn’t make very much but I was learning how to use it and I just LOVE it ,,, my new bestest friend ,,, :-)

Tea and Sympathy ,,,for our Anything Goes Challenge :-)

To join us on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image :-)

I used this very cute ‘Color Me Better’ image, coloured with copics and I inked the edges with Vintage Photo DI. I used paper from Karen Foster and 7 Gypsies, a Martha Stewart border punch, some Hero Arts ribbon and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops. The sentiment is from LOTV and I finished with Star Dust Stickles :-)

My sister fell off her bike and broke a bone in her foot so she is now off work and having to put her feet up so I made this card for her ,,,

Next up is a Tea Bag Dispenser that I made using the Silhouette Cameo machine.

I downloaded the design , cut it out, stuck it together, I used a Tim Holtz Typeset Alphabet die to cut ‘TEA’ and stuck those on the front using glossy accents, I added a TH Hitch Fastener to the top to make the lid handle,, simples ,,, :-)

We are sponsored by House Mouse Designs so a fab $25 gift certificate on offer


Pizzazz Aplenty will be giving away a fab pack of embellies worth $10 ! :-)
