FS #27 and House Mouse # 13.....Baby Doll!!!!!



Well, I had so much fun with last week's, House Mouse & Friends Challenge, that I thought I would join in again this week! I also wanted to use this weeks fabulous sketch over at Friday Sketchers by Kristine....it was the perfect match!

Now, when I saw that this week's HM&F challenge was to use "JUNK" I was very excited!!! I know that sounds a little strange but I knew exactly how to "JUNK" up my card!!!

You see, I have been saving "JUNK" just for this kind of thing, smile!!! There was just one little problem! I don't own any House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies stamps. Well, I soon rectified that problem with a trip to my LSS....he, he, he!!!


So, I inked up my new Happy Hoppers stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured it with my Copic markers. I cut it out with my square nesties and embossed it too. I distressed it with Walnut Distress Ink and Metallic rub-ons. The card base is made with kraft cardstock and the pp is Kelly Panacci baby paper that I have been hording forever. The "JUNK" is an Old Navy tag that was on a dress that I bought for my daughter last year. I just loved the ribbon and the tag that I couldn't possibly throw it out!


Well, I am pretty happy with how this card turned out! I finally got to use this old tag that I have been hanging on to for a year, I used some old Kelly Panacci pp and even managed to use a sticker from the co-ordinating sticker sheet.

I want to thank everyone for all the kind and supportive comments that you have been leaving for me! I really appreciate it!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look!!!

this is wonderful! I love the look to it! I also save cool tags from clothes (shhh... please don't tell dh!) I should have thought to use them for this challenge. I'm afraid that I have soooo much junk around my house, it was hard to choose! ;)
again, great job!
