Mini Book Memories

Hi All.
Its been a lovely day here today in North Wales and after a day out and about watching rallying with family, I' now back home catching up with a little 'light' surfing before tea ha! ha!

Thought you may be getting a bit boggled with Mices (although I'm getting withdrawls already) so I thought I'd show you part of a little mini album I made using envelopes of our Scottish holiday in the Highlands. Hope you like it - got all creative with the glimmer mists, inks, scrunched up flowers and generally had a great time reliving our holiday memories!
I'd like to enter this in the Spoonful of Sugar challenge - Let's get Punchy - and the SimonSaysStampChallenge - Punch Em -as I used small flower punches and nestabilities dies to make the large distressed flowers and swirls on the front cover.
Bye for now

Even More Mice...

Hi All...
Just thought you might like to see a couple more of my House Mouse decoupage cards created for Joanna Sheen using her fab 'Just the Two of Us' range. Hope you like them!
I love the purple colour theme of the easel card - didn't want to part with it really ha! ha! Then I carried on this purply theme by toning it down to lilac for the little mice in the chocolate box. Do you ever get stuck on one colour theme or is it just me??
Back soon with more arriving soon so I'd better get my skates on!
Bye for now

Flowery Mice

Evening Everyone! Well, these nights (and days) are certainly getting colder and we're starting to feel the winter chill. Nothing quite like being snuggled up inside crafting when the dark nights draw in!

I've had a busy month so far and also had some great news.

Recently I was contacted by the Joanna Sheen Team and asked to be on their Design Team - I was chuffed to bits and have enjoyed working with some of the lovely products that they sent me - especially the gorgous House Mouse decoupage and stamps. My first samples were shown on the Create and Craft House Mouse Saturday Show last saturday so above are just some of the images that I'd like to share with you - hope you like them as much as me! The images were from the latest 'Just the Two of Us' decoupage set - available from Joanna's website. If you've never given decoupage a go, then why not try these - the designs are fab and quirky and will appeal to everyone in your family!

The flowery mice design I'd like to enter in thie weeks ABC challenge of 'Flowers' - hope these mice asleep in the flowers count!
Anyway, bye for now... happy crafting!

PS - Sorry about the colouring on the pics - these dark nights are no good for photography sessions!

Get Spooky!

Hi Crafters! This month I was lucky enough to win a slot as Guest Designer over on the By The Cute and Girly blog - this is just one of my samples that I made. If you're in the mood to 'Get Spooky' then why not pop over there and join in their challenge.
I love the combination of orange and black so really enjoyed making this card and I thought the sentiment - which I found on the internet - was a bit of fun and very apt for Halloween.

Since we'll be celebrating Halloween in a couple of weeks I'd like to enter the Something to Celebrate challenge over on the Stamp Something blog.
Bye for now and happy crafting!
