House Mouse and Friends ,,,, Black and White Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to get a little crafty time for yourself.

Before moving onto the challenge we are welcoming 5 new teamies !! Woo Hoo !! A HUGE welcome ( in alphabetical order) to Dorte, Jennifer, Kate, Paula and Tracy. I am sure you will enjoy being part of this fabulous, friendly and close knit group :-) We are sisters:-)

Also our next challenge ,, which will start in 2 weeks ,, will be a HUGE blog hop with LOADS of fabby prizes on offer !! So make sure you make a note and don’t miss it !!

This fortnight on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge it was America’s turn to choose the theme and she chose ,,,,,

BLACK AND WHITE, you are allowed to use skin and fur tones on the image :-)

When I saw that the challenge was black/white, I immediately thought of black and white photo’s and as luck would have it I recently bought this fab Say Cheese House Mouse stamp ,,, isn’t it CUTE :-)

I stamped with Memento ink and coloured slightly with N00, No and N1 copics, didn’t use much ink !! I cut out with Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies and inked the edges with black ink to add definition. The papers are from Doodlebug and I used plain black SU card for layering and for the panel too. The gorgeous lace and gingham ribbons are from The Ribbon Girl and the beautiful button is from Basic Grey Little Black Dress Eclectic Embellishments. The sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn set and I added some Star Dust Stickles around the image and sewed the edges to finish.

We are sponsored by our very own teamie, America, who will be giving one lucky entrant a gorgeous House Mouse stamp with matching sentiment and a fabby selection of charms.


Di’s Digi Downloads who will be giving a fab choice of images too :-)
