Butterfly Express

Well what a difference a couple of days make!!!, today i'm back in my jeans and anorak !!!, oh well it will save us running up a huge water bill (as we are on a water meter), as we had new lawn laid on Tuesday.

Right on to todays card - 'House Mouse' stamps are another of my favourites, yet this is only the 2nd ever card i have made with 1 and yet i bought 5 of them last year in 'HobbyLobby' in Houston for between $2 and $4 !!!, with the view to have a go - although i have been told the more simpler designs are the easiest to colour in ???

Right on to the challenges :

Housemouse Challenge - are up to Challenge No: 70 and the theme is 'Goodbye' and it's also their first blog hop with loads of fabby candy

Papertake Weekly - are up to Challenge No 41 and it's a fabby sketch

Image - House Mouse Designs / Stampabilities - 'Butterfly Express'
Paper - Basic Grey - 'Urban Prairie'
Sentiment - Penny Black - 'Sentiments' - 'T for Transparent'

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
