The new chall theme at House Mouse & Friends Monday chall is hosted by

ANYTHING popped up ie: decoupage, on foam pads, just put your thinking cap
on & take inspiration from my teamies awesome creations.. plz remember to use a
House Mouse/Happy Hopper or Gruffie stamped image/CD rom or Decoupage
I decided to play safe & make an easel card which has a bow popped up & the stopper at the
bottom is also Popped Up...The cute image is a Happy Hopper called “Will knit for Fiends”
I can just hear that likkle chick shouting to his foster mum to hurry up knitting his new coat..lol
The Spring themed DP is Echo Park “Sweet day” SU coloured card stock, Magnolia swirl flourish,
Lil inkers bow die, MS PATP scallop set. & B/fy, Lala land Scroll die.

Love this image and your Popped up yarn and needles is a wonderful addition. Those are the best uses for cocktail sticks and beads I've ever seen. Love that bow also on your top portion of this very special card. Enjoy your day.
