Sugar 'n Spice

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is: White on White hosted by Kelly - you can also enter a card with an anything goes theme as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image that will be fine.

I have used a fabulous image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Christmas 'Gingerbread House' stamp set and coloured it with ProMarkers.


I cut out my image with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die and placed it inside two other frames cut with the same die set.  The base layer has been embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder and the sentiment is from the House-Mouse stamp set.


I have added a bow tied with Seam Binding from The Ribbon Girl and a little snowflake button from my stash.


Our fabulous sponsors this week are:




one lucky winner will receive a Fabulous $20 Reward Card
(Winner must be a USA Resident, it's Territories or Canada)

AND


Di's Digi Stamps are offering a second lucky winner a $12 voucher

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sorry I have been gone so long. I was busy purging items in preparation for our move. The new house is slightly smaller...mostly in the kraft room and breakfast room. Had to give a way a lot of items...finally finished and can take a break for a couple of months untill it is time to start packing. Hope to get by more often now!
