Let's Celebrate

The title of my post is let's celebrate and that's just what I'm doing because I have been invited to join the fabulous House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Design Team. Anyone that knows me will be well aware of how much I love House-Mouse and it's such an honour to be joining such a talented team.

Our theme for this fortnight is 'My Favourite Things' hosted by Sue Kment, for my card I've used one of my favourite Joanna Sheen House-Mouse decoupage Sheets, buttons and twine/string.

My papers were some freebies that came with Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine and the sentiment is a Paper Smooches stamp.  I have embellished my card with a Die-namics die cut corner, along with some buttons and twine from my stash.

We have two fabulous sponsors this week:

Prize:  $25 Gift Certificate.


Prize:  £10 Gift Voucher 

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

Alphabet Challenge - T for Twine
As You Like It Challenge 15 - Spots or Stripes (Spots because they go with anything - even stripes!)

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 'My Favourite Things' challenge.
