House Mouse Die-cuts and / or Punches

Morning everyone, hope you all had a great weekend. We took my Dad to a nursery (garden type) yesterday afternoon and of course we came home with a car boot full of plants - and all of them for Dad. His next crafty project will be with wood making some planters to put them in!!

But onto my card for today which is for my GDT spot over at House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge hosted this fortnight by Sue Kment. The theme is 'use die-cuts and/or punches' but don't worry if you haven't got any dies or punches as you can always join in with the alternative theme of 'anything goes' and there are some fabulous prizesto be won.

I was very lucky to be one of the HM April winners and my prize from that challenge hostess Kelly Smith was the adorable House Mouse stamp that I've used for my card today. It's called 'nap time' and I coloured it with Promarkers. I used a Die'sire Embossalicious folder 'petite dots' to emboss the background and Spellbinders 'opulent ovals to cut and layer the image. The flowers are made using Cheery Lynn 'large rose', Dovecraft 'daisy' punch and gems from my stash and the lovely pink ribbon was also from Kelly. Finally the sentiment stamp was a magazine freebie.

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
A Little Bit Crafty challenge 'Child's play' (2nd entry)
Whimsy Stamps challenge 'Tic-tac-toe' (ribbon / flowers / sentiment)
Stamping Sensations challenge 'Animal antics'
Bunny Zoe Crafts challenge 'Layers'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Ink it up'
Gruffies & Guests challenge 'Anything goes + option patchwork'
CAS(E) this Sketch challenge 'sketch'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'Use snippets' (used for flowers and sentiment)

Thanks for popping by and I do hope you can join in the challenge with your House Mouse, Gruffies or Happy Hoppers.
