Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Thanks/Thanksgiving

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week the challenge is


With Thanksgiving in the United States being on the last Thursday of the month we thought it would be nice to join in with the celebrations. Whether you decide to make cards or decorations, we will be looking forward to seeing what you create!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
I made a Thanksgiving card in autumnal shades using Simon's Exclusive Leaves and Scribbles Stamp and Coordinating Dies and a Thankful Die.

I love the golden colours or autumn and after blending Gathered Twigs and Shabby Shutters distress ink over Distress Woodgrain Cardstock I stamped a Simon's Leaves Background with Gold Pigment Ink.  I then used a Bubble Stencil, Embossing Paste and Vintage Platinum Dust sprinkled over the top to add dimension. 

For the leaves I used a MISTI tool and inked the stamp with Spiced Marmalade and then Forest Moss Distress Inks, spritzing lightly before stamping to create a watercolored effect.

I finished the inside too ;-)

Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

House Mouse 'Sharing Mints'

This week on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge it's the lovely Natascha's turn to choose the theme and she chose

Turquoise/Purple + One Neutral Colour
you can always choose the anything goes option too, the main thing is to enjoy House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or the lovely Gruffie images and spread the love :-)

Christmas will soon be here and I still need to make quite a few cards so I used a Stampendous Carrying Gifts Cling Stamp and love these non traditional colours :-)

Isn't Monica a clever little mouse carrying all those sweeties, it doesn't matter that she dropped a few does it ;-) 

I finished the inside using a Santa Mouse Cling Stamp 

Thanks for looking! I hope you will join in with the challenge, we need to spread the love of these little critters. Please join in ;-)
