Ooooh! My first Blog Hop !!!

I’m a WALTZING MOUSE !! Actually, not so funny, beacuse I have had to completely gut my craftroom this holiday as we discovered evidence the little bleeps had been in my paper stash… Never mind, job done now and I discovered a TON of stuff to use !

So on with the cards !

I loved Claire’s Teeny Trees when they were previewed, but tried to resist as I have several tree images already ! However, these were too sweet, and my resolve weakened with the arrival of birthday money… ! This is such a great set and I can see lots of cards for lots of occasions coming up !

I’ve also been playing around with my scrap stash, and thought these green papers would be lovely as “grass” (my visiting niece just doesn’t get the idea that stripy paper can be grass -it’s art, dah-ling !!!)

* All images WaltzingMouse Teeny Trees

* Inks – sky is Distress Tumbled Glass, tree solid is Memories Soft Celery, tree leaves are Kaleidacolour Autumn Colours

Thank you for your visit !

    Very pretty cards with lots of potential use. Look forward to other seasons’ versions!

    Margaret, we are so happy that you joined us this month! And what beautiful cards! I would never have thought to do the leaves that way, but now I’m going to have to pinch that idea! lol

    Waltzing mice would never dare eat anyone’s paper. I recently found a baby lizard in my craft room. I don’t mind them in the garden, but not in my house! YUCK!
