House Mouse & Friends wish you a Happy 4th July

A very Happy 4th July to all my American friends but very special wishes to our lovely, adorable House Mouse & Friends leader America whose birthday it is today.
Have a wonderful,magical day sweetie - love you loads xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This week we are happy to welcome our July Guest Designers Gill and Kat, look forward to working with you both.

This week we welcome back our wonderful SPONSOR; SIMON SAY STAMP
This week, we are happy to welcome back our FABULOUS SPONSOR, Simon Says Stamp!!! SSS will be offering one lucky YOU a $15 Gift Card to the wonderful Simon Says Stamp store! 

Right, onto my card,  it was my turn to choose the theme this week so as the lovely Christine chose 'Here comes Summer' for the last challenge so I thought we would have 'Make a Splash' this time - in other words a typical British summer theme!!!

I chose this image, called 'Tin Can Shower' and coloured it with the usual Copics. I decided to keep a fairly CAS look as I couldn't decide which embellishments would suit the image. The border is punched with a Martha Stewart punch, the corners and hearts with cuttlebug dies.

I used Diamond stickles on the water and if you are eagle eyed you might just be able to see it in the above photograph.

Hope you all have a great day and a great week

The shading on that watering can is terrific & I can see the Stickles. Love the way the shape within those corners is echoed both by the ribbon bow & the border shaping of the image panel.

I love the CaS look about this, and the British summer reference - yup that's about right usually but my Mum has been complaining about the drought this year! I'm sure it will make up for it once we get back though LOL.
