House Mouse Challenge #12 - A recipe
This week's challenge for HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS CHALLENGE BLOGSPOT is "a recipe"! But this isn't your typical how to bake a cake kind of recipe. This card making recipe challenge was to use the following ingredients on your House Mouse card: 2 buttons, ribbon, a scalloped edge and FELT! Yes, I said felt. Not velvet, not flocking but felt.
This was fun! At first I thought of several ways I could use felt on my card but then, when I remembered this House Mouse stamp, called Mouse Bounce, I knew immediately that Marshmallows would be perfect for the card making recipe requiring felt. The prize for this week's challenge is a two week stint as a guest design team member!
For the scallop I used a Martha Stewart border punch. The ribbons and buttons are from my stash of supplies. I colored the mice with prismacolor pencils.
Who used to watch The Waltons on t.v.? I loved that show and when I saw the requirements for this card to use "the recipe" I chuckled to myself as I pictured the Baldwin sisters and their "recipe." Do you remember Miss Emily and Miss Mamie Baldwin and how Grandpa used to love to visit them for a little sip of their "recipe"?
Hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful week!
