Blow out the candle and make a wish...
I was lucky enough to bid for a couple of House Mouse stamps on Ebay and get them for a good price, made this card with one of them, isn't it a sweet image? I've followed Wilma's sketch from Dutch Dare Card Challenges. Charisma Card's Challenge this week is to use anything new, so that's ideal for my new (well new to me)stamp :). Also One Stop Card Challenges calls for fancy edges or corners. I've only one corner punch, which I've used on this. However I've used a Martha Stewart lattice punch and a border sticker from Basic Grey to make a very fancy edge, as well as the deckled edge to the main image, made with a Nestie.
Image coloured with Copics and cut out and matted with Nestabilities dies. Sentiment is Hero Arts. All DP is Basic Grey Nook and Pantry, including the border sticker.
Today is supposed to be Blue Monday according to the paper. Well maybe, but almost all the snow has gone from the ground and life is so much easier as a consquence, so I refuse to be blue :)
