Sweet Stampin GDT- Cute and Cuddly

Hi everyone! I hope you're all well and feelin crafty!! I've been very lucky the last couple of weeks. First of all I find out that I was "in the spotlight" over at Sweet Stampin Challenges for my strawberry card I made a couple of weeks ago but then the lovely ladies ask me if I'd like to be guest designer for July!!

I also won the challenge over at Fuzzy Wuzzy and won $20 of House Mouse stamps so the card I've made today has been made using one of the stamps I picked when I won!

So the challenge over at the lovely Sweet Stampin Challenge is "Cute and Cuddly". As I said I used this cute House Mouse stamp. I coloured with watercolour pencils and cut out using a nestie using a technique I found here. I did some paper piecing on the kite and sponged the background. These beautiful summery papers are by October Afternoon and are actually called "Fly a Kite"! The sentiment is Pink Petticoat punched out with a Stampin Up window punch.

Do visit the girls at Sweet Stampin, there are some seriously cute cards on display this week!

Usual close up! Such a cute bunny!
