House Mouse And Spellbinders

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Kate's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Monochrome" - Use something on your creation that is all in tones of one colour or the obvious black and white.  I chose to go green as I used my favourite stamp HMPR1010 Sleeping Under flowers, and the prominent colour I used on it is green.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Creative Knockouts - Texturize it
2. Crafting When We can - challenge # 53 - Seasons (I have done Summer)
3. Scribble & Scrap - challenge 1 - Anything Goes

Today's News:-

Look what my lovely Hubby bought me out of his bonus at the weekend.  I was so excited, sounds silly I know, but the only spellbinders I have is basic circles, ovals and Poinsettias.  So to get three new sets is fab, I can do so much more, hope you won't get too bored of seeing them on my creations LOL!
I do look in e-bay but find your nearly paying full price for them in the end and I think these were a a decent price anyway at £15 each from my craft shop as everywhere on line that I have seen they are £19.99.  Have I got a bargain?

Stamps - HMPR1010 Sleeping under Flowers, 
Papers - Nitwits Perfect pair,
Colouring Mediums - Promarkers, distress inks,
Tools - Grand Calibur, Gold Labels Four, embossing folder, Cuttlebug, butterfly punch
Embellishments - gems, ribbon, stickles, 

Thank you for popping by my blog.
Happy crafting
