A Relaxing Day

This is my second DT post today, you can find my Ooh La La Creations card HERE.

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is:  All about Summer hosted by Natascha - a nice easy one for you, just make sure you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image to join in.

I've used a fabulous decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Designs Silly Summer Decoupage sheets and papers from Joanna's Jayne Shasky CD and Pink Petticoat.

The decoupage image on the sheet is actually square and very large, as I wanted to make a smaller card I decided to cut it out using a Spellbinders circle die and mount it onto a Kraft scalloped circle. The border is a Fiskars edge punch and the flower is a Tim Holtz die.

The sentiment is part of the decoupage sheet and the button and twine are from my stash.

This fortnight we are sponsored by

Who are offering one Lucky Player a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of some of these Premium Dye Ink Pads


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

Dream Valley Challenge 86 - Summer
Pile It On Challenge 29 - Summer Fun
Scribble and Scrap Challenge 23 - Anything Goes
That Craft Place Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - Anything Goes

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 our All about Summer challenge.
