Relax

It's time for a fabulous new challenge 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 image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Designs Summer Drinks Stamp set, coloured with ProMarkers and papers from the Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine collection.


I've cut my image out with a Spellbinders die and the sun is a Lawn Fawn die cut.  I used Distress Inks to create the cloudy sky and the ribbon is from my stash.


This fortnight we are sponsored by
