Simon Says: Be Square On The Monday Challenge

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week we are challenging you to

Be Square

You could choose to make a square card or box or use a square element on your creation! Whatever you decide to make we will be looking forward to seeing your project!
Please pop over to see what the DT and our lovely guest Autumn made too!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I made a square Post-It Note holder using a Tim Holtz Mini Crazy Cat and a Memory Box Grand Stick Frame Die  

I actually made this for my craft room, I use a lot of post it notes for jotting down little reminders to myself and I also use them for masking. However, when my daughter saw it she thought it would be a lovely birthday gift for her flatmate so I will be sending it off to Scotland along with this coordinating card. I will have to make me another one ;-) 

I used a Prima Paintables Salvage District Paper Pack for the background, I love that these resist the paints, and then coloured with Distress Crayons Set 1 , blending with my fingers and getting all messy ;-)  I then distressed the edges and inked with Gathered Twigs Ink. 

I love the Memory Box Grand Stick Frame Die  layered a coupler of the die cuts to create a frame for the inked and textured panels. I will link all the products I used at the bottom of this post. 

Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

House Mouse 'Friend Wishes'

We are back with a 'New' theme on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge after a long Christmas break! did you miss us? ;-)

The lovely America is hosting this challenge and the theme is 

Something New 
it could be a New Job, New Baby, new Home, new Crafty Stash, you can also choose the Anything Goes theme but whatever you choose have fun with these super cute images :-)

I used a new  'Friend Wishes'Clear Stamp Set
I love that it has a few mousey stamps and several sentiments, a perfect set :-)

Isn't this little mouse cute with a flower on his head ;-) I thought he would be perfect for an 'Under The weather' kind'a card. I have a couple of friends who are going through some difficult times at the moment so I thought these might cheer them up a bit and make them smile :-)

I kept the cards CAS and just added plashes of star dust stickles for the rain. 

Thanks for looking! I hope you will all join in and spread the love for these cute House Mouse, Happy Hoppers and Gruffie images ;-)
