HMF #37 - Moving

Happy House Mouse Monday everyone... Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day.... I did... Saw all three of my children, two out of three grand children, had dinner with my parents and Mother-in-law... My husband cooked a delicious steak dinner and had a spa day with my daughter... it can't get much better than that.

I have some wonderful news to share with you. I have been asked to stay on as a permanent member of the HOUSE MOUSE CHALLENGE BLOG.
I feel so very happy and honoured to have been asked to join this amazing team who create the most wonderful cards..

Ok... so today's challenge over at House Mouse and Friends is MOVING.

Make a card or gift for someone who is moving into a new home, new job or someone who has moved into your area... whatever you want. Just make sure you use at least one House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies image on your creation.

I made a gift tag. I'm using mine to hang on a wine bottle. I have been fighting a cold all week and seemed to have lost my mojo... I finally decided on making this gift tag, it took me 3 days on and off to finish it... Then I noticed that Suzy H - had made a gift tag a couple of weeks ago for our Get Well challenge ... I loved her tag so much when I saw it, that I cased it... but changed some of it too... Thanks Suzy for the inspiration....

My adorable stamp is called "Monica's gift". I water coloured the image twice, cut out one image and layered over top of other image. Cut out image with plain circle nesty, cut out two larger rust coloured scalloped circles to matt image.. Sanded edges. Used one of the largest scalloped nesty circles to make gift tag. Ran the dp through the CB with Swiss dot folder. Pierced edges.. Attached the yellow striped ribbon and bead for the hanger. Sentiment inside card is computer generated.

Make sure you hop on over to the House Mouse and Friends blog and check out what the other DT members made to help inspire you.

Happy Stamping, thanks for stopping by.
