Just Because...

I wonder how many of you send "just because" cards ???

 We all spend so much time on social media we forget to make and send a card just because !! The shame of it is,  we all love to receive something in the post other than BILLS !!

Anyhoo my "just because" card came about because my lovely friend Nicki went to Ally Pally and as well as buying herself a few crafty presents she also bought me a few fab presents "just because", how sweet was that !! One was this fantastic Heartfelt Creations stamp set called "Sugar Hollow Hangout"

 If you're not a fussy cutter out like I am then I recommend you buy the die set that goes with this set of stamps....the tree is a bit fiddly to cut out. Done my usual of making my ink cloud background, stamped, fussy cut and then coloured my tree, owl and swing, punched then shaped a few flowers adding pearls to centres and loads of faux stitching. Finished off with some lace, lace bow and big pearl centre !!

House Mouse & Stampendous Blog Hop midway !!

Morning guys !!

"Use stencils with our HMD Characters"

Here's my mid-way Challenge Blog Hop inspiration for you using again Dreamweavers gloss embossing paste and "Vintage Decor" stencil !!

My very happy mousey friend is HMD "Jelly Bean Nap"

Made my very colourful border by pasting through just the top of the stencil with gloss paste onto squares of card and then covering with micro beads while still wet !! This is best done holding over a large container as micro beads bounce all over the place !!  Great fun was had !!

Stamped and coloured my litte friend using distress inks and spectrum noir pens.
