House Mouse

An extra wee project from me.....

My good blogging friend Curt over at www.curtsplayhouse.blogspot.com has become part of the Design Team over at House Mouse.....


If you have not come across these most adorable little characters, you must be hibernating....

Anyway, the latest challenge over at www.housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com is this adorable little double pocket bag.....


When I was visiting Curt's blog I fell in love with his project and had to have a go myself. This is what I came up with.....

Papers used are Making Memories Fa La La and ribbons from stash.....


The stamp, is of course, a House Mouse stamp called "Christmas Tale".....




The House Mouse site directs you to full instructions for making the little bag and then the fun is to decorate it.....




Granddaughter # 1 loves it, she's carrying a load of buttons around in it as we speak!!!!


Thanks Curt for your inspiration xx

This is so AWESOME Jane! I'm so excited that you did one and this image is perfect for it. This project was easy wasn't it? You did a wonderful job with the coloring. And your decorating of the bag is so beautiful. That Bow is PERFECT for this bag. I need to remember that. Just beautiful! Best, Curt
