House Mousey Play Time

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Today I have been playing, I got up early and cleared all the housework and ran upstairs to my Beach Hut to play with my crafty bits.  I had a couple or so challenge is mind, and had a few DT pieces to do as well.  But spent a good hour photographing a fishing net tutorial.  I had received so many comments and mails asking how to create it that I though I best have a go.  So Matt very kindly obliged, so this will follow soon.

But for now here are my favourite critters, this is another of my Autumn images from my pack which I purchased from Grimsby Crafts, I have to say it was easier on the colouring than the last one :) but equally as fabulous.

Here it is
The card follows the following sketch
from Midnight Madness
of course I was aiming for the House Mouse Challenge

The base colour on the card is a deep chocolate brown this is also the contrast colour.  The papers are from the Papermania Mono range and I adore this particular one.  The ribbon is from the Hobby House as are the Pearls.  The lace is from Grimsby Crafts and believe it or not the little maple leaves are off the floor in my garden, I just added some diamond stickles around the image plate and onto the leaves. The image has been coloured in copics and the sky airbrushed, with a little edge distressing with E31.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 500 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 500 follower candy you can do so here, and thank Feline for advertising my candy for me.

Totally awesome, you guys are amazing................thank you so much :) 632 followers, if you are already follow me please don't forget to put your name in the hat :)  I am now looking at my next candy, not sure at the moment what I will be going for, will have to see what is new in at Grimsby Crafts :)

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!!
