HouseMouse365: Day31

Hello,
Today is my final card for January, and as in the UK this weekend its 'Big garden birdwatch' weekend, i decided to use a bird themed image.
This came from one of the cardmaking packs by Joanna sheen. 
The papers are by Nitwit collections, festive flowers. I avoided the christmasy themed papers and stayed with the plainer patterns which match the colours of the image perfectly.
I added the matching sentiment and some pearls to finish this 7x7 card.

HouseMouse365: Day 30


Hello!
Wow, Day 30, nearly a whole month finished already!
For my card to day, i have used a happy hopper image. Now, this image is one of my most used because it's perfect for friends birthdays, because who hasn't done this when you were a kid? 
Normally, i paper piece the duvet and pillows, but because i've used quite patterned papers, i decided to colour it instead.
The papers are from a trimcraft pad, Serendipity.
I added some polka dot ribbon and bow, and a little sentiment tag.

HouseMouse365: Day 29


Hi,
My card for today is one that im sure many mum's, or even grandma's would like to receive.
I used this sweet image of Amanda and Monica, colored with promarkers and die cut into one of my fancy rectangles.
Because the image doesn't have much in the way of colouring, i used a simple colour combo. These papers are from Potting shed by Nitwit collections and are perfect for anyone who likes paler colours or delicate patterns.
I added some large width lace, heart shaped doily, some flowers, pearl head pins, pearls and a sentiment to finish.

House Mouse 365: Day1


Hello!
Happy New Year!

It's been a while since i last posted anything due to some family issues but i am back. This year, i have decided to challenge myself and use more of my House Mouse stash. So for 2016 i am doing My HouseMouse365, 1 house mouse card a day for a year. It's my own challenge that i have come up with. I have so many images both in stamp and topper form, some that i haven't used that much that i have decided to try and create a card a day. Hopefully it will inspire you to use your own stash more too.

So for Day1, i have created a Happy New Year card using the image Martini mice.
I decided to go for a monochrome colour scheme using some smaller A2 size cards i had left over. I cut the front panels from them and used them as layers. I also added some silver flake ribbon and a sentiment to finish. I kept the image uncoloured to match.

Well, that's day1 over. Come back tomorrow for the next card.
