House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge # 90 is Multi fold!!

Oh dear!!! - I completely forgot it was Mousie Monday this week and am only just uploading my card. I blame it on the fact that February has some days missing, it really needs a few more and I get confused - nothing new there then!!! This plus the fact my eyes have been bothering me again this weekend so I've hardly been near my computer and now I'm playing catch up again.

I've seen these fabulous envelope cards that my Lili of the Valley teamie the talented Lena Katrine has been making and thought I'd try one. I actually used my Envelobox as a template - but it did turn out rather larger than anticipated and photographing it was a nightmare!!!
I use the image ;Buzzy Friends'. coloured it with Copics, inked the edges with Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint distress inks and cut it out using the Spellbinders curved rectangles. The papers are SU, the butterflies and leaves cut with Crealies dies and the flowers and skeleton leaves with Marianne Creatable dies. The sentiment is TPC Studio and cut with a Go Kreate tag.

Here is a close up of my little Hoppies

This is the back of the card and I used a Nellie's Multi frame, a large brad and some silk cord to fasten the card.

Here is the front which has the Spellbinders curved rectangle as a place to write on a name.

This week we are being sponsored by my lovely mate Di of Di's Digi Downloads and the winner will receive 3 digi downloads of their choice 

Oooh I forgot the challenges I intended to enter this one into!! These are just two of the few I managed to put back after my page disappeared.

Your Hoppies are tremendous - superb colours & so individual. Love your colours on the envelope card too - really stunning. Do take of your eyes - I'm chasing my tail - actually I'll let you into a secret: I'm absolutely convinced that someone removed some hours in some of the February days & so we had fewer hours each day & they hoped we'd not notice - they probably did it whilst we slept. It was only Christmas yesterday!
Much love
Paula (PEP)
