Happy House Mouse Monday my friends!
It’s time again for a new challenge at the House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge blog! Our challenge this week, brought to us by THE nicest, sweetest lady in blogland, my friend Miss America is adding JEWELS or jewelry to your card or project. America not only chose this challenge, she also sent awesome surprise packages to each DT member with LOTS of different jewels, beads, charms … too much to list! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
For this cute little PRIMA Ballerina ~ actually named TWINKLE TOES, I’ve used a string of silver beads – attached with double-sided super sticky tape, a silver charm for her crown (we couldn’t have a PRIMA Ballerina without a crown!), some silver metal flowers to which four teeny, tiny silver circle beads were attached to the center.
Phew … thank goodness for bifocals!
I also decided to take a stab at a Diamond Fold card, using Bette’s tutorial over at Splitcoast … after several attempts at this folding technique, I finally decided that you have to be smarter than the paper! Apparently, I wasn’t for awhile. But, eventually I got and really love the look of this type of card.
You’ll definitely want to take a peek at all the goregous jewel cards from the Design Team!! And, hopefully, you can join us for this fun challenge. All the details can be found HERE.
Hope your week is off to a great start.
