Card's Galore October Challenge

Good Morning to all my crafty friends and followers

Today it is time for our new challenge this month which is "Have a Mice Day"!!!  Yes we want to see those mice on your cards.  Please hop on over to see the design teams creations using mice.  They are just so cute.  Saying that though I hate the real things and my Tiggy keeps leaving me lovely presents on my garden path, isn't she ever so kind - NOT!

Anyway here is my creation.


Recipe & Method

1.  I have used a Labels One shaped card in cream and folded the front of the card halfway to make an easel card.
2.  I took a piece of Kanban Baroque card and cut out 2 piece of card one for the topper to sit on and the second to matt on the bottom of the card using Spellbinder Labels 1 die. Before matting the bottom layer I have wrapped brown lace around this to act as the stopper and added a sentiment which reads Just for You.
3.  The topper piece of card I have attached halfway on the front of the card. The topper has been printed onto Neenah card and coloured in using my Copics and sponged with Dew Drop VersaMagic Thatched straw. I then cut this out using Spellbinder Scalloped Labels one die and attached to the card.
4.  To finish off I have attached card candi and made a bow with two pieces of ribbon and attached to the card with 2 pearl gems.



Thank you for Stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

I love this card Linda! It's so cute...hang on...I'll ask Jamie his opinion as he's an expert on mice.

"I like this card, it's too cute and I like mice very, very, very much, they're so, so, so, so cute. It's amazing and it's brilliant - but not as brilliant as my mummy's cards!
Love and hugs
Jamie

What a lovely card, Linda, such a cute image and a perfect mix of papers and embellishments. Our cats used to bring us frogs, and we soon learned to recognise the screaming of the frogs and shut the doors. So we didn't get the offerings brought inside for the most part. The pigeon got in before we were awake though - alive! Try catching and getting rid of that. Thank you for your visit this week and your kind comments. I did the insert for that card yesterday and I have to say that my brayering was perfect, thanks to the Splodge mat. Have a good week. xx Maggie
