House Mouse Challenge - Not a Card

I set off with what I think is a good idea, I begin and then think "oh why oh why did I start this?". (I've got another why did I start this on the go at the moment). This weeks HM challenge is anything but a card - I thought I know I'll do a notebook. Started it and then worked out I needed to do 10 illustrations - that's like doing 10 single cards - am I stupid or what ?
I have only photographed 5 and there are a couple I haven't even done yet (new HM stamps in post - need to have something to use them on when they arrive) The images are all wtercoloured and the papers are various downloads from Digital Scrpabook Art.



House Mouse stamps
Cuttlebug: Fancy corners and borders dies
Zutter: Bind-it-all
Brads, ribbons & pearls from stash

So beautiful - worth the effort Rica. I haven't got a single housemouse stamp (how sad is that) so I don't enter that challenge, Methinks these are more things to put on my wanted list.
