A card for my Mum


Well it's spitting and blowing a gale outside so glad to be inside - miserable weather.  I've had to make a few get well soon cards this week due to family members picking up that nasty cold and flu bug that keeps hanging on in there.  I'm drowning under a pile of washing.  Where does it come from??????  It's empty one day then full the next.  Well it's been a nice steady week in the Johns household another room in the house got gutted and cleaned with the help of my daughter.  It was her room and with it being half term what better time to crack on and use the help.
It would be rude not to.  Here's another housemouse card:
I used: Wild Rose Studios gingham papers, card, card candi, sentiment from my stash, Housemouse Birthdays Poppy stamp set coloured with promarkers, xcut postage stamp die and a flower die cut sent from dies to die for which came as an extra something with some stamps I won I while back.

crafty catz weekly challenge 120 - favourite things ( Housemous stamp, ginghams and card candi)
dieing for a challenge - our first challenge -anything goes must use a Dies to Die for product
sirstampalot february challenge - in the garden theme
sarah hurley challenges 60-die cuts
stamp,scrap & doodle challenge - more than two layers

I've loved this stamp since the first time I got it but this is the first time I've used it - so cute.  Over the last few days I've been trying not to have to much dimension to my cards as it costs extra to post, I'm quite liking the change.  Just found out my butterfly card was picked 'In the Spotlight' over on Lets ink it up - whoopee! I also won crafty hazelnut's christmas challenge with my Tatty Teddy xmas card it was a redraw - wow!

Thanks for popping by.
