Good morning.... As I am very new to blogging - please forgive any mistakes I make.
A few weeks ago House Mouse & Friends were looking for two new design team members. I was encouraged to try out for one of these spots. While I was checking the House Mouse blog on February 11th I noticed my name along with the very talented ladies Rica and Jami Bova picked to fill these spots. I was so excited and scared at the same time. I called out to my husband (Rob) - come and look at this !!! as I was jumping up and down.... Having this honor has pushed me out of my comfort zone..... Now I am blogging and on a design team - wow.... it is all good - Right!!!!
This weeks House Mouse Monday Challenge is a sketch provided by Jeannette - owner of
2 red bananas AND they are donating a wonderfully sweet prize - PLUS their own DT will be joining in on the sketch challenge to show us even more beautiful cards to look at.
Here is this weeks sketch challenge
The main House Mouse image "Mouse Bounce" from Stampabilities #HMI101, was stamped twice on whisper white. I water coloured both images with Stampin up reinkers. The bottom image was cut out using nestabilities. I reverse masked the image and then sponged on regal rose, apricot appeal and chocolate chip, then I ran it through the cuttlebug with the swiss dot embossing folder to give it texture. I versa marked and clear embossed the thimbles. Cut out the image and popped them up. Matted with pink circle and chocolate chip scalloped circle. Main card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" white, next is pink, then swiss dot embossed chocolate chip. The diamond and striped designer papers are from Making Memories. I really liked the happy spring colours - I thought they went well with the fun image. The diamond panel is matted with white and pink. I sewed all the white lines to add texture. Bottom striped panel is matted with white and pink. I made the shrinky-dink sentiment embellishment a couple of years ago. Tied on the white and pink sheer ribbon and embellishment. All edges were stitched. I hope you like my first DT creation.
Hope you come along and join in on the challenge. Please upload your cards at House Mouse and Friends Blog. Have a look at the other fabulous cards made by both design teams.
