House Mouse Blog Hop


I have been invited to be a guest designer for the month of January at House Mouse Challenge Blog. What a dream come true, I get to work with one of my passions House Mouse, so I didn't have to be asked twice.

There challenge theme is "New Beginnings", it could be a wedding, baby, job, new year etc............. I chose to do a "New Job" for my creation using Paperclip Heart.

It is also a Blog Hop as well, there will be hidden prizes along the way, great sponsorship and House Mouse stamps are among the prizes too.

You should have come here from SUE K and your next stop after me is House Mouse Challenge blog. Please leave a comment to tell us you have been here.

So enjoy yourself and hop on to the next stop


Recipe:-
Stamps - House Mouse Paperclip heart HMOR1010, sentiment computer generated,
Papers - Forever friends Just For Him,
Colouring Mediums - Promarkers, Gel Pens, Distress Inks,
Tools - Fiskars border punch,
Embellishments - ribbon, paperclips,


Happy crafting

Paula said...

What a delightful composition & incorporating real paper clips with the stamped ones is such a good idea - I had to look (&even now I'm not certain) which were real. Love the colouring of the bowl too. That white highlight just does it - a technique I need to learn. The way you've used the colours of the patterned paper for the punched borders & ribbon is great too & I just sat looking for a while learning. Thanks.
