The Best Of Friends with the HM&F Monday Challenge DT

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next fabulous challenge over at the  


The theme is 

Friendship
Anything to do with friends and friendship

and was  chosen by the very talented Tracy

with two fabulous sponsors

and the other will get from 
A $10 voucher for the winner

Here is what I created for my design team piece, but do hop over to the main challenge site to see the rest of the awesome creations

The base colour and contrast here is pink card.  The papers are that old that I am sorry I just do not know the make or name of them.  The swirl of pearls are from the Hobby House, the roses are airbrushed in R83 and were originally the ivory ones from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The die cut leaves and lace are from Grimsby Crafts.

The image coloured in copics to match the paper.  The image is called "Mice Typing" and is available from Simon Says Stamp
Do hop over and join us for the challenge :)  Don't forget, you too may submit your House-Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers creations directly to THE Official House-Mouse Designs site found HERE!
