“Springtime” at House mouse & Friends Challenge Blog

Finally it’s springtime in South Western Ontario, at least until the weekend when the temp. dips again. We have had a couple of fabulous spring days this week. The challenge at House Mouse & Friends is to make a project with something on it that make you think of spring. Lilacs are always a favourite of mine in the spring, the scent from them is so fresh and sweet and there is a bush in the neighbour’s yard, very close to the “line”. Here is my springtime card.
Image……House Mouse “friend” a Gruffie
Cardstock…..Elegant Eggplant, GP White,
DSP….from Stampin’up
Accessories….purple rhinestones flowers, edge punch.
Colouring medium…..prismacolor pencils & oms
I just had a trip to an art’s and crafts store (Curry’s) to pick up a few more of the prismacolor pencils. Several new colours and several replacement ones that are getting a little “short”. I also bought some blending stumps #1 size for those tiny areas and odourless mineral spirits, what a fun, sunny shopping day.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to get out some crayons and colour, it is so therapeutic.
I am entering this in House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. which ends Saturday 4/20/13

I can't wait for the lilacs to bloom, they are such fragrant flowers and oh so pretty. Your Gruffie is enjoying his. Beautifully colored. Your papers are so pretty and love the lilac color scheme to go with your image. Thanks for joining us for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
