House Mouse 8/11

This week at House Mouse & Friends we have the theme 'You Gotta Have Friends and was set by our sweet and  fabulous Team Mate Sue Drees. We are to create a House Mouse & friends project keeping it "ALL  ABOUT FRIENDS".

I've used the image 'A Carrot between Friends' and coloured it with Copcics. The papers are Basic Grey's Green at Heart and I've used the Tim Holtz Sizzix  on the edge alterations die to create the frame. I've used the negative cut away aspects top and bottom and the positive portions in the middle. The flowers and leaves are cut with Crealies dies and the sentiment with Spellbinders Fancy Tags. The sentiment panel is cut out with the SU punch and I can't for the life in me remember who the sentiment stamp is by - and as I'm still in the UK I can't  have a look.

ONE HOUSE MOUSE or HAPPY HOPPER stamp of choice will go to one lucky winner from our very GENEROUS sponsor Simon Says Stamp
Simon Says Stamp started in 2002 and now has over 100,000 items in stock. They strive to bring you a wide range of rubber stamps, Altered Art, Scrapbooking, ATC and papercrafting

I had a brilliant time at the NEC and it was so lovely to meet up with bloggy friends again and to meet so many more for the first time. I have photographs I hope to be able to show tomorrow if I can commandeer my grandson's computer and he doesn't snatch it back.

Heather, I am in awe of your beautiful coloring each time I see one of your cards. This one is no exception.....image just pops off the paper!!
The card design is wonderful and fits that stamp perfectly.

Sounds like you had a great time, can't wait to see pictures.

How do you manage to take a cutesy stamp and turn it into a card fit for a blokey? That's a definite Heather-talent. Beautifully designed and coloured as always.

And yes, I wanna see the piccies of rainy old Brum too!

Enjoy your trip, and stay safe!

Your use of both positives & negatives is brilliant - love that paper with the floral pattern & it just really suits the whole composition. Your colouring of that carrot is unbelievable - it just glows & I love these mice. House Mouse & Co. remain on my wish list - NEC provided me with 120 colours to colour them with instead. Glad you had a brilliant time & have a safe journey home again.
Much love
