Feeder Friends

It's time for our mid challenge reminder  at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and this fortnight our theme is: Flowers & Flourishes chosen by Kelly.

For my card I've used a fabulous decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Spring is Mice Decoupage Collection and papers from Joanna's Jayne Netley Mayhew Part 2 CD.

I used a Spellbinders die to cut my scalloped edge and another for the flourish.  The flowers and rub on sentiment are from by stash.

We have three fabulous sponsors this week:

Who are offering one lucky winner a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of some of these Premium Dye Ink Pads


who are offering a surprise package of embellishments worth $15.00. 
(Due to increased postage costs, the winner for this prize must reside in the USA)

and we also want to welcome back our amazing SPONSOR...

One Lucky winner will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to go shopping at the official House-Mouse Designs store.

Winners, please note that where ever it is applicable, the shipping fees, the handling fees and the tax fees are the winner's responsibility.


Another lucky player will get this sweet House-Mouse Designs stamp - generously brought to you by our talented Teamie and challenge Hostess, Kelly Smith.

THAT's FOUR Fabulous Prizes, and that means FOUR Chances for you to win. 

The Lucky winners will also be offered a GUEST DESIGNER SPOT with our Mousey Team for the next two months, (May and June 2014).

So what are you waiting for, one of these awesome prizes could be yours if you play along.

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

The Corrosive Challenge 197 - Pretty Pastels
V's Sweet Ideas Challenge 22 - Technique (Decoupage)
