Lovable Mice


Well it's cold but sunny here and i'm just chilling out, after a busy weekend.

I'm so shocked and honoured, as i have just found out i've been picked as todays Daily Spot for Challenge 3-2-1, on Joanna Sheen's Challenge Blog and the card is here.

Today's image is one i saw on an auction site and thought mmm i like that, but i wasn't convinced it was a  PB, so i checked it out and found it was from 1997 and it's code was 716E, so a very old one, as you can see i was fortunate enough to win it and i have so enjoyed using it too.  The papers are Carta Bella - 'Devoted', I've used Sizzix - 'Easy Peasy' for the letters, the heart pearls were in a pack from 'The Works' and i've distressed it with Tim Holtz - 'Aged Mahogany'.

Today's Card And Challenges Are :

Delightful Challenges  - where the Challenge is 'Red And White'

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Monochromatic'

My Time To Craft - where Challenge No: 207 is 'Love Is In The Air'

Sweet Stampin  - where the Challenge is 'Love Is All Around'

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where February's Challenge is 'Love And Marriage'

Sweet Stop Sketches - where they are up to Sketch 'SSS196' and it was just what i was looking for, thanks

Cutie Pie  - where Challenge No: 37 is 'Valentines' - i wasn't going to enter this challenge as well (as i don't like to be greedy), but my lovely friends Sue and Susan, said i should.

Image - Penny Black - 'Lovable Mice' - 716E
Papers - Carta Bella - 'Devoted'
Letters cut with - Sizzix - 'Easy Peasy'
Heart Pearls - The Works
Twine from my stash.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, all are appreciated, Luv Sam x

Hi Sam

Super lovely.

Those little mice are so cute and your papers are fabby. A really great finished look.

I didn't recognise the stamp either .. .. and I call myself a Penny Black fan!!! Tee hee!!

So if ever I am bidding for a Penny Black stamp the chances are we are bidding against each other!! Perhaps you should just move next door and we will share. We will save ourselves lots of pennies LOL!!!

Love Jules xx
