A helping hand



   The challenge for the next two weeks at House Mouse and Friends is ‘use your favourite things’. I have chosen Promarkers, an embossing folder, distress ink and card candi as my favourite things.
   I embossed white card using the Darice folder ‘Dots’, putting it through the machine twice in order to emboss the whole area. I then wrapped ribbon round the centre of this before layering onto pale blue mirri card and attaching to a white card blank.
   The image is from the Happy Hoppers set of House Mouse rubber stamps from Joanna Sheen and I coloured it using Promarkers. After inking the edges with distress ink and mounting it onto pale blue mirri card I added glitter to the foam bubbles and water and card candi to the four corners.
   I also matted the stamped sentiment onto pale blue mirri card and added glitter to the capital letters.

   I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Crafting Musketeers – pretty pastels
   Crafty Catz – anything not square
   Creative Fingers – anything goes
   Crafty Ribbons – anything goes with ribbon
   Imagination Crafts – glitter and sparkle
   Creative Creation – sparkle and shine
   ALittle Bit Crafty - sparkle and shine
   Fab’n’Funky – anything goes
   ScrapbookStamp Society –anything goes plus optional dry embossing
   Dream Valley - clean and simple
