Anything Goes Challenge # 17 'Cute'

Hurrah, I have made it for the Anything Goes Challenge this week!! I also saw that we have 100 followers, hurrah again!

This week the theme is cute and I can do cute! While I absolutely love the grungy look, I really have to try hard, but cute comes much more easily!

I have made a House Mouse card. Some time ago Lynne very kindly lent me a couple of her House Mouse stamps and I stamped half a dozen of each to colour later on and here is one. How cute are these little fellas having a shower to wash off all the yummy berry juice. I have used a mixture of copics and promarkers to colour the image and added glossy accent details on the water and the berries. The punches are all MS, bo bunny ribbon and bazzill cardstock, all from Craft Den. The flowers and basic grey paper are from stash.

THE album is finished, duly presented on Sunday and enjoyed. What a relief, mum was really pleased and she took it with us to the lovely family meal we had to show it around to everyone. We had a good lot of my family there, aunties, cousins, family friends etc so it was a really lovely afternoon and time rushed by. Mum had a lovely time as well, which was the main thing. She is going to write on a piece of paper who is who in each layout in her album and put it behind the pages so that Emma knows who they all are in years to come. I am not one for journaling on my pages, but I never thought to put anything for Emma in between each page to tell her about the photo, where it was, what occasion etc. It's a really good idea so I'm going to make a start on that myself as well. Well I have nothing else on at the moment, LOL. Plastering all done, just four rooms to decorate now! Christmas cards started as well. I would sleep if I hadn't caught the crafting disease some years ago now.

Hope you like, K x
