I LOVE these new House mouse stamps!

If you have not seen the new unmounted House mouse stamps you really need to check them out. I have LOVED house mouse for a long time but they were always so expensive these unmounted stamps are so affordable. At Donnas Den you can get them for just £8.99 a set (at least 2 main images plus extras) that is cheaper than even getting them direct from Joanna Sheen!!
I have made 2 cards up to star with but have many more to come trust me :D

This first card I have stamped all round the edge with a bauble stamp from the Christmas feathered friends set That is also where the main image is from. I have coloured the image with promarkers that you can get from Crafty Emma's Store then inked round the edge with the darkest colour I used for the baubles and mounted it on foam pads so that it stands out. The great stars are also from Crafty Emma's Store and the sentiment is from Dove craft.
I am entering this card for the following challenges:
House Mouse Challenge Blog - Vintage (darn it I am too late don't you hate that!)
Crazy Challenge - Forest Friends
ABC Christmas challenge - Quick and easy
Stampavie and more - Christmas in summer
Daring Cardmakers - Treemendous

Next I have gone for a different feel and got away from Christmas :D The image is from The poppy set and again I have coloured it with promarkers, get them from Crafty Emma's Store along with the pearls and the gorgeous paper. The paper is from Pink paisley Bayberry cottage 6x6 pad. The sentiment is from Lili of the valley.

This second card is for the following challenges:
Crafty cardmakers - Birthday
Funky Friday - Anything but a square
Crafty catz - Animals
Sweet stampin' - Favourite stamp (Well I can't really pick just one to be honest but it would have to be from these house mouse stamps I hope that's OK).
