House Mouse and Friends Monday ,,,, Jewellery Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) we had a brilliant time coming to see your ‘Football’ creations ,, oh my goodness you are an inventive lot, some of them really had me laughing out loud !!,,, all of them were very cute :-)

This time it is America’s turn to choose the theme and she chose ,,,


so you can add some jewellery or jewels on your creation

Don't forget you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image to enter this challenge :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp, so a fab $15 spree AND a surprise package from our lovely teamie America too !! :-)

America sent the whole DT a goody bag of things to use for the challenge !! How very kind of her eh !! Thanks America xx

I have just bought this fab House Mouse Java Jumpers stamp ,,, and just HAD to use it ! I knew I had seen coffee bean jewellery in my local store but unfortunately it was gold ( too expensive) and had already been sold ,,, so I had to put my thinking cap on !!

In the bag of goodies that America has sent there was a fab silver circle, I stuck a coffee bean onto that using E6000 glue ( THE best glue EVER ,, that bean isn’t going to fall off !!! ) I then found the leather jewellery whatchamacallems in my jewellery box ,,,, brill ,,, necklace made !! This is fastened onto the card with a simple bow so can be removed easily. Then I made a pair of earrings using a little pair of old studs ,, I just stuck coffee beans on those ,, using the same glue and made a little box to pop them in, did you notice the little silver circles on the top of the box/ ,, these match the circle on the necklace and were in America’s goody bag All of the beans were coated with glossy Accents , I covered some extra ones too and used these as extra embellies Smile. I used SU Chocolate Chip and Ivory card and Basic Grey papers from the Kraft paper pad and the sentiment was printed on my comp.

I used a Penny Black mouse footprint stamp ( now retired I think) and some organza spotty ribbon from my stash ,,
