Feeding Time

It's time for a new challenge at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, our theme is: Spring, chosen by Tracy - alternatively you can enter an Anything Goes card just as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image.

I have used a cute decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's Flower Power Decoupage Sheets and matching floral papers from the House-Mouse Inserts CD ROM, the dotty papers are from Pink Petticoat.


I printed an extra sheet of the floral papers slightly larger so that I could cut out some flowers to embellish my card, the sentiment is a LOTV stamp.

A Golden Oldie

I have decided to join some of my blogging buddies and visit Erika at Snappy Crafts today to show a golden oldie, I hope she doesn't mind.  This is the very first card that I ever blogged back in April 2011.


The stamp is Outdoor Adventure by Sugar Nellie, coloured with ProMarkers and the sentiment is a Polkadoodles stamp.  The standard of photography hasn't improved much - hubby is going to buy me a new camera for my Birthday, hopefully that will help!

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, hubby is going out for the day on Sunday so guess what I will be doing!

Thank you for visiting me today, your company is much appreciated.
