Anyone for Tea?

This is my final card as a guest designer for the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, I love these adorable little characters and have really enjoyed being a part of the challenges over the past couple of months.

I have exciting news though - the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge team is having a  blog hop and I'm delighted to be taking part - you know how it goes, you visit the mousey teams creations and leave them all a comment to be in with the chance to win one of the fab prizes on offer.

Besides our generous sponsor prizes some of the team have candy prizes to give away too.  You must hop to every team member and leave a comment - we will check, to be in with the chance of a prize. You should have arrived here from the very talented Annie and after you have left a comment hop on over to visit the fabulous America Kuhn.  If you get stuck hop back to


and check the list.

The theme this fortnight is Anything Goes with TWINE - so any theme and any House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper image as long as you include some TWINE.

Make sure you pop over the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog for more details and to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and great prizes.

I used a fabulous decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Food and Drink Decoupage Sheets with papers from Joanna Sheen's Jane Shasky CD and Bearly Mine Designs Gingham collection.


I have kept my design quite clean again - Kraft card stock, a punched border, a couple of LOTV tag sentiments - attached with my twine, and some gems from my stash.

I think you can see the decoupage layers a little more in this photograph, there are five layers altogether - just as well this card is for my niece and I will be able to give it to her rather than having to post it.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Scrapper's Delights Challenge 9 - Decoupage
Nutcrafters Challenge 54 - Lots of Layers
Charisma Cardz Challenge Week 41 - Greed/Food (sugar lumps)
Bugaboo October Bingo Challenge - 2 Designer Papers, Bling, Punch and Punch, Players Choice, Sentiment
Totally Gorjuss Challenge 206 - String
Stamping Sensations October Challenge - All Creatures Great and Small
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge 33 - How Adorable

Thank you for popping in today, don't forget to take a look at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and join in with the blog hop and Anything Goes with TWINE challenge.
