Dog with bone


   Friday has come round again meaning that there is a new QKR Stampede challenge.
For this card I have used the digi 'dog with bone', coloured it using Promarkers and fixed it behind a black square card from which I had cut a circular aperture. I then matted and layered this onto grey and then white card. The lacy corner embellishments were cut using a Tattered Lace victorian corner die.

Sunbathing mice


   The theme for this fortnight's challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is here comes summer. I thought these sunbathing mice were just the thing for this topic.
   The image is made using a decoupage sheet from the House Mouse Silly Summer set which was produced by Joanna Sheen. The sunflower paper is a remnant from my stash. I had printed the sheet using a CD ROM some time ago so cannot remember which one it was. Both these items and the yellow card have been matted onto olive green card.
