All Mice Today!

Hello everyone, hope your all enjoying the sunshine, I'm spending lots of time in the garden and taking care of my little seedlings and plants, some have actually gone into the ground now and are growing nicely.
It's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Use Your Favourite Stamp' So I really thought about this because as all us crafters know we have a different favourite every week LOL!  But I thought to myself if I could only stamp one more time which would I really love to use, and this adorable little critter won outright.  I used some Tattered Lace dies for the bow and butterflies and frames.  I coloured the image first, then matched the papers

We have sponsorship this Month from

Visible Image 

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

And now onto my second challenge creation which is for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Anything Goes', How easy is that, so come on get out your Penny Black stamps and join in the fun.

I actually don't have the stamp for this, but really need it, it was stamped and sent to me by Debby4000 when I first started blogging and didn't have many images/stamps to use, thank you hun.  I decided to do something different, don't ask me why as I have no idea, but I put my image through an embossing folder once I had coloured it.  Then sat and smoothed out the pattern where the image is so it is surrounded in embossed dots.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Crafty Ribbons, Tonic, Indigo Blu stamp . Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Now if you would like to be a GDT for us, all you need to do is make a creation to fit the theme following our rules.
