House Mouse Monday chall.83 Envelope Art

Wowzer another 2wks have gone by & its time for another

 This is a 1st for me never done ENVELOPE ART before thats what
our theme for chall 83 chosen by our teamie Sue K.  We would like
you to decorate an envelope with a HOUSE MOUSE, GRUFFIE or
HAPPY HOPPER  image, think I could have done more on mine but
wasnt sure if it was supposed to be Postable..if you know what I mean???
my teamies awesome creations would have to be hand delivered..
wouldnt trust them in our postal system..!! well would you???  LOL.

The back view as I put some art work on the reverse too.

The cute HM stamps I used are from various sets at  Joanna Sheen
Coloured with Promarkers & Prismas ..I had a lot of trouble colouring mine
as the paper envelopes I used were very absorbent, 6 went in the bin..
The candles were stamped coloured, cut out & stuck on the envelope
was sick of the bleeding of the markers..sentiment stamp is an oddment..

entering this into
 Susies Die Cut Dreams chall.#75...   Anything BUT a card..
Stamp Scrap & Doodle  NO Flowers

Cant wait to see what you all come up with am thinking Crimbo envelopes
 you must see my teamies AWESOME creations Jaw dropping gorgeous..

Thanks for stopping by see you soon

hugs to all Christine xx
