Flowers and Flourishes at House Mouse & friends..

House Mouse & Friends Secrets
The last couple of days in the UK have finally felt like Spring   yahhhhh !!
We have a new theme  starting over at House Mouse & Friends Monday chall
Our teamie Kelly is the host for the new theme of Flowers and Flourishes..
plz remember to use a House Mouse/Happy Hopper or Gruffie stamped image/CD rom or Decoupage

Our 2 Guest designers Carol and Chrissy  have gorgeous mousey creations to share thank you ladies..
 I used the Triple HM CD (a 1st for me) it does make a nice quick easy card when short of time..
This lovely image with the sweet mice sheltering in a post box from the Spring rain..lol..
base card stock is SU..flourish is a magnolia die, image is matt & layered to make it pop..
DP I made myself on a Greeting card factory programme,with a poppy image scattered
 about reverse image & there you have it a DIY DP..lol
The Poppy flower is also DIY from SB “Rose creations dies” crumpled up
lots of layers some glue & thick black glitter for the centre..thats my take on the
chall theme lets see yours..4 awesome prizes up for grabs..
