Congratulations

We have a new challenge at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and I'm a day late - I always have two DT cards to post on a Monday, so I save my House-Mouse one until today, I don't like to bore everyone with multiple posts if I can help it.

Our theme for this fortnight is: Congratulationschosen by Kate - alternatively you can enter an Anything Goes card just as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image.

I have used an adorable decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Home and Garden Decoupage Sheets.


My papers are actually Christmas papers from the Papermania Home for Christmas collection, I have also added a square of Aida Cross Stitch fabric.  The sentiment is part of the decoupage sheet and the ribbon and button are from my stash.


We have four fabulous sponsors for this challenge:
Please check the challenge blog for full details.

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

Come and Get It Challenge - Animals
Craft Your Passion Challenge 267 - Always Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything Goes
Little Red Wagon Challenge 294 - Stitching
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 316 - Anniversary/Wedding
Craft for the Craic June Challenge - The Big Occasion!
Gruffies & Guests Challenge 18 - Lavender & Lace or Anything Goes

Thank you for popping in today, don't forget to take a look at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and join in with our Congratulations challenge.
