Sophisticats Week 7 meets Crafty Creations and Paper Blooms



First of all thank you all so much for the wonderful messages of support you've left me regarding our break-in, I'm really touched and appreciate the support & love you've all sent - thanks so much. Feeling ok this morning and determined to put it all behind me, Kev's sorting us a house alarm today, which we didn't have because we thought we were safe here! Obviously not, but it's onwards and upwards and thanks again for all your support.

It's week 7 over at Sophisticats and this week we've got a great sketch set by Lisa.

I'm also entering my card over at Paper Blooms, their theme is Monochrome and also at Crafty Creations as their theme is Blue and my card is done using Stampin' Up! Bashful Blue cardstock and Bashful Blue DSP's, which are gorgeous, I'm not normally a blue kinda gal, but I love Bashful Blue and use it again & again. My cute little mouse is from DigiStamp Boutique and I've just coloured his paws using PM's, a bit of grey around the outline and blue on the snowflake which I've then added glitter to. I've also added a tiny bit of blue chalk around the edge of the circle, which isn't too clear from the pic.

The sentiment is SU! from the set Circle of Friendship (you'll be seeing a lot of this one on my Christmas cards!), layered onto a circle of Bashful Blue, which I've also glittered. I've added some snowflake brads from my stash and that's it!

Hope you can join in the fun this week at Sophisticats.
