House Mouse Recipe....




The ladies at House Mouse Challenge this week have a great recipe for us:

Cute little furry animals (As much as possible)
Sprinkling of Personality (Well there is loads of that)
Few drops of Humour (Mudpie's Antics take care of that!!) !!!LOL

Here is the proper recipe for our creations!!

2 Buttons

Ribbon

Felt

Scalloped Edge
I love this cute image of Muzzy, Amanda and Monica under the mistletoe!
I used Basic Grey papers, the scalloped edge on the right came from my lovely blogging buddy Dawny, I edged the scallop with green Dew Drops ink, the mice are coloured with Derwent watercolour pencils - Oooh I'm really liking those!!
Added my buttons threaded with ribbon and cord, the flower is felt with a little dew drop in the centre, I then added my charm with a safety pin and tied some ribbon round the pin.
I don't know what it was about this card but I couldn't get a decent picture - three times and loads of photos later this is the best I could do!! Grrrr!!
