White and One Other Colour for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Now you would have thought that as I had most of last week off, that I would have posted more than I have, unfortunately I spent my week catching up on the housework and making boxes for cards :) you see I love making the cards but never actually get around to the boxes for them, so spent a good two days making boxes....................."mental note to my altered ego 'Bridget'.......must make the boxes as I go from now on.

Although with this horrid cough making boxes was the easier option, must also avoid standing near people that are coughing horridly, to avoid catching nasty bug yuk!!!!!

On another point hasn't blogger been a nightmare for commenting this week, wish he would sort his act out.

So with that off my chest (sorry could not miss that one out), not that it is a big chest at all would not want to give you that impression..... we move on swiftly to the next challenge at the

with the fabulous theme chosen by the very talented Wendy aka the boss of

White and One Other Colour

Pop over and see who has joined us in the Design Team and go show them some love :) along with checking out the rest of the design teams inspiration, which is as always fabulous

So trying to avoid the waffling, here is my design team inspirational piece for this week
I made a friendship card with my favourite little critters.
The base colour and contrast is white, with some of those gorgeous Papermania Mono papers from the Heather range I believe (have so many of them I do forget)
The image is of course House Mouse and the layers have all been distressed and glittered up, a girl can never have enough glitter.  Marianne Dies used for foliage with the Wild Orchid flowers which have been distressed as has the image plate with Tim Holtz mulled lavender and some fabulous diamond stickles. The sentiment is a matching pair from My Sentiments Exactly.

Here is a quick close up of the image, just what a friend is for don't you think?
Don't you just love those gorgeous Violet copic colours.
