Ballooning For Berries

Today see's a new challenge over at Oldie But A Goodie, the theme has been chosen by our lovely Lisa Jane , and she has chosen "The Great Outdoors". This is the great prize that is up for grabs :-

The team have made really gorgeous creations, if you want to take a peek, so if you'd like to join in please remember no Digi's and your stamp must be over 6 months old.

For my card it had to be House Mouse, they get up to allsorts in the great outdoors, and this little critter is no different. It does make me smile this image. I had another go using the cloud technique, this image called for it as there was a bit of an empty space behind the main image.

This is also for the following challenges:-

1. I ♥ Promarkers - challenge 77 - Things with wings (I used Aquamarkers)

2. Ladybug Crafts - challenge # 36 - Favourite Stamps (all House Mouse are my favourite, but this one is so cute)

3. Crafts & Me - challenge 46 - Anything Goes

4. A spoonful Of Sugar - challenge 162 - Happy Birthday

5. Papertake Weekly - Grow Your Own (Used punched flowers)


Stamps - House Mouse HMTR1032 Ballooning for berries, Woodlandfolk sentiments,

Papers - Papermania Henbury Lane,

Colouring Mediums - Aquamarkers,

Tools - butterfly punch, border punch,

Embellishments - stickles, gems,

Hope you all have a good week, thanks for popping by my post.

Happy crafting
