House Mouse Love




I  won this stamp last year in a House Mouse Blog Hop, thank you Christine, this is the first time I have used it, it's a real cutie. Lots of layers and some paper piecing too.

We weren't flooded this week but the burn beside us rose to within about a foot of my husbands workshop, and our son was stranded in Aberdeen overnight, the trains north were cancelled and the A96 was flooded in several places which meant that we were unable to drive the 50 odd miles to collect him, there were services cancelled yesterday as well because train crews were stranded away from base. Hopefully things will be back to normal next week.


Stamp by House Mouse Design
Papers from Nitwit Collections
Dies from Cheery Lynn, Sizzix and Spellbinder.

What a lovely card Meg. Well done winning that lovely stamp. As always the layers look beautiful and I like how you've embellished with matching paperclips. I glad to hear that you are safe from the floods. I think all our hearts go out to the poor people suffering from the flooding. I hadn't thought of the implications of people being cut off though till I read your post. Take care. Barbxx

Great card Meg - and so lovely to see that wonderful image so perfectly coloured. Love how you paper pieced the wee dish :) Clever touch to add the paper clips as well!

I do hope things return to normal for you - our friends in Inverurie were high enough to be OK thankfully but their daughter was evacuated to them in the middle of the night when the River Don burst its banks. What a nightmare - and it just keeps getting worse :(

Hugs

Hi Meg, thank goodness you are not affected by the floods, it's just heartbreaking for all the folk who have been flooded, I don't know how they cope with it.

A super cute card, Meg! Great colourings. Thanks for sharing it with us at stamping sensations for our stamp and Die challenge and good luck!

Pia S said...

Haha, this would be perfect for a friend of mine and she will know exactly why. A day about 15 years ago she had to participate in a training at her workplace. They had spent almost a full day where they had to come up with all possible ideas on what they could use paper clips for... It was kind of a creative mind type of training, not something my friend is very keen on...

SARN said...
