Allsorts Challenge

Morning Folks..and yes I am almost done and dusted with all my crafty stuff...and am now beginning to get in holiday mood but time for another challenge card.   I was lucky enough to be voted in the Top 5 last week over at the Allsorts Challenge along with my lovely Funky Hand teamies....ALLISON and DOLLY...hey well done girls....three cheers for the Funky Hand Girlies...3 out of 5 ain't bad.
And the challenge this week is.........


Background: Basic Grey
Hearts stamped with Hero Arts: Fill Your Heart Stamp Set
Image: Penny Black....Have a Micey Day Collection
Sentiment: Hero Arts: Tiny Text Alphabet
Flowers: Prima & Crafty Bitz
Now I may have cheated a little bit here as there is a touch of brown on the hearts to tie in with the colour of the mice....and hope I am not going to be disqualified and sent to the corner with the dunces cap on....of course... you do get pink and white mice.....remember those fondant mice you used to get at Christmas with the string tails....haven't seen them for years.  The small circles were coloured with Hero Arts new shadow ink....Blossom.....there has been quite a discussion on the Hero Arts Flickr Group about this colour....lots of folks don't like it....think it is too bright.....I have to disagree....I think it is just the most gorgeous pink and tones in perfectly with the paper and the Primas...but hey it would be a boring world if everyone liked the same thing.......will be back later with some thank you's for two lovely bloggy buds.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
