Sunday Sketch Mice


Whoo Hoo I made a Penny Black card for Saturday and I've just realised how crooked the image is, hope its only me who notices!
I had these mice coloured for a while and the papers were going to be used on another card then I didn't like them so I used it on this card.
The sketch is Sunday Sketch and Stamp but I'm not sure I'll have time to link it will have to use Sis slowest PC in Hampshire maybe I'll get her to try it on her i pad that she got for her Birthday.
The sentiment is from the latest seasonal catalogue from Stampin Up the stamps though are the hostess set. Selection of snowflakes and a bit of ribbon and of course my favourite border die of the moment from MFT.

Here where I cut on the border to help them round the oval obviously I've only marked it so you see where.
And I love the fact you butt the ends together and therefore don't have to worry about covering the join, also here you can see where I line them up along the oval.
It's always worth to try this technique with your border punches and dies, sometime they work and some don't but where they work so well like this border die its a bonus.
Finger crossed Mr Blogger schedule this post, I know he been misbehaving but hopes he loves me a little bit.
