House Mouse and Friends Monday ,,,, Fall :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you all had a lovely weekend of Happy Crafting ?? I didn’t do very much at all ,,, busy getting nowhere sort of weekend ,,, :-)

Now it’s time for a new theme on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. We had lots of fabulous entries to our Halloween theme but it would be nice to see more of you, so dust off your cute House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie stamps and join us :-)

Sue Kment chose the theme this week and she chose ,,,

FALL , so anything with Autumnal colours, leaves or Halloween will work !!

I wish I could enter !!! :-)

For my card I used my lovely House Mouse Apple Harvest stamp. When I think of Autumn I think of Cox’s Orange Pippins, lovely english desert apples that I can’t get here, so I tried to colour these apples to look like them ,,, although they do look more like oranges !!! ,,, need more practice :-)

I coloured with Copics, added Rock Candy stickles to the apples, then inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I kept the design very simple as this is a HUGE stamp and there isn’t much room left for anything else ,,, . The papers are Basic Grey, tho I can’t remember the name of the pack . I added some green bias tape from The Ribbon Girl and a charm and twine that were a gift from America and a few green Robins Nest dew Drops to finish.

thanks for looking,our fabulous GD’s and the DT have made some gorgeous ‘Fall’ cards for your inspiration so hop along to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them :-)
