Cling Beach Toss

Happy Monday to you all :-) I am here with a reminder for you all to join in with our fun challenge over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge,

you can choose the Anything Goes option too, we would really like to encourage everyone in their love of all things House Mouse :-)

I have recently bought a whole load of the new cling stamps and this Cling Beach Toss is the first to get an inking :-) A day at the beach ! what could be more relaxing ?!

Isn't this CUTE :-) a little mouse playing with his crabby friend. Ellen Jareckie, the artist behind these images has such a lovely imagination, she really does bring them to life !

I paper pieced the beach ball and added a Lawn Fawn sandcastle and some new Simon's Exclusive Chevron Clouds, I used a Copic Air Brush to spray the ink through the die.

I finished the inside, I am really trying to keep this up :-) It does take a little bit extra time but it is worth the effort, makes the cards a bit extra special don't ya think ? :-)

We are sponsored by 

Prize is a $12 Gift Voucher to Di's shop
