Monday candy and House Mouse looking for new home



Hello all you lovely Peeps, time for my weekly DT piece for Pricky Pear and Nicecrane Designs plus Monday Candy of course.

For my Prickly Pear piece I have used the Easter Crosses 2 clear stamp set, stamping one of the four crosses from the set into the aperture and heat embossing with a pink powder. The lily is made using Tonic punch and stamp Lily set and the leaves which are cut on Coredinations is a Cheery Lynn die.


Now for one using an image from the Flower Children design sheets from Nicecrane, some Kaiser DP, die cut corner and stars and some tags onto which I stamped a sentiment - half on each tag.

The winner of the Art Deco goodies from last week is Kevin from his comment on Thursday's post, congratulations Kevin please mail me with your full postal addy so I can send them off.


This weeks I have a paper pack, I have the pad and found it useful year round. Also a House Mouse stamp looking for a new home - it's a biggie but not brand new and has been stamped a few times, but I figured may be more use to someone else than sitting in by stamp draws. If you are not interested in the stamp please just mention in your comment.

To be in with a change of winning this is what you need to do......
  • Post my Monday Candy Poppy logo on your blog sidebar with a link to my blog.
  • Leave a comment on any post between now and next Monday.....comments on two posts and names go into the draw again and so on.
  • Be a follower of my blog and please no candy only followers, I do check winners blogs and any non genuine ones will be discounted.
Hope you all have a good week and thanks for popping in.

Hi Brenda, I'm just here for a visit to see your beautiful designs and not for your lovely candy. You are very kind. Gorgeous Easter design, love the elegance and the lilies. Also the 2nd card is sweet. I have that MB star die in my collection, it was difficult to find! Now of course I need to use it :) Have a great week, I hope you are doing well, Shirleyx

Your first is very striking as an Easter card - the lily looks wonderful with the bright pink stamens & the sublet stamped detail of those petals.
I like the way you picked out the colours of the image in the second card - I love the way your pearl balances that silky multiple bow too.

Beautiful cards Brenda, the cross looks like it was hand stitched- so gorgeous. And loving that beautiful image on the second card. Hope you have a good week!

susiestacey said...

Beautiful cards Brenda, and that little Harebell girl is so sweet (think she is a harebell), it has been a while since l went walking looking at wildflowers which was something l really enjoyed. And the housemouse - well they do love nesting in boots as we have found out in the past in our garage :( they very quickly went in the bin), the disadvantage of living next to fields. The stamp is gorgeous though. Have a good week x Susan x
