It's a Girl

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is: Paper Piecing hosted by Dorte - you can also enter a card with an anything goes theme as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image that will be fine.

I really struggled with this challenge as I couldn't find any stamps that could really be paper pieced so I decided to use my Huge Woodware Baby stamp for the paper piecing and added two adorable little house mouse images from Joanna Sheen's Allsorts rubber stamp set.


I coloured my images with ProMarkers and used papers from NitWit Collections for my paper piecing and backing paper, I have used Kraft card stock for layering.

Our fabulous sponsors this week are:
