All Paperclipped

I'm just loving House Mouse, and this fun image was great to work with. I have used Promarkers this time instead of my usual Distress inks, I love the Denim Blue I used to colour the paperclip jar. I've tried to embellish without flowers today, thats a task in itself.

This creation is for the following challenges:-

1. House Mouse - challenge # 70 - Goodbye/Farewell

2. Passion For Promarkers - week 53 - Anything Goes

3. Cute Card Thursday - challenge 113 - sketch

4. Incy Wincy Designs - challenge # 43 - Button up

5. Creative Inspiration wednesday - challenge 62 - Distressed

6. Simon Says Stamp - Blue, Brown Green

7. Crafts and Me - challenge # 5 - Distressed

Well the weather has definately changed, quite cold today and trying to rain. It's my Hubby's birthday today and I bought him a new watch as his has broken.

Happy Birthday John xxx

Happy crafting
