Lucky Lucky Me!!!

Good morning all! How are you today - I hope you are feeling well and happy - and if not here's a big hug ....huggle huuggle huggle .... Hope thats better! I'm feeling a bit tired - but will be back on form soon I hope.

Before I launch into todays post I just want to tell you about something thats happening at the weekend - there's going to be a mini release on the 9th and 10th of June at Crafty Sentiments and the DT work for this release will be on the Inspirational blog on those days.

Today I've got a house mouse card to share with you made using the triple house mouse CD Rom that I was very lucky to win from the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog. I couldn't believe my luck! Anyway - here's the first card I've done using the CD. I'm not really a CD crafter but it does come in handy and I just love this CD - the only problem was which image and paper to choose. I decided to try to fit the themes of the current house mouse and Joanna Sheen challenges - and this is what I came up with:

The decoupage image and bottom papers are both from the CD - the top paper was pinched from my mum when I was crafting there the other day - it may have been a first editiion pad from trimcraft. The card is 8x8 inches.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

House Mousehousemouse-challenge: For a male
Joanna Sheenjoannasheenchallenge: Spots and Stripes
Card Crafters Circlecardcrafterscircle: Stripes
Penny'spennyschallenges: Birthdays
Simon sayssimonsaysstampschallenge: Masculine
