Still got the blues for you

Yeah I know, I don't have to sing a song for these challenges, but I've been working in BLUE all morning and that tune keeps going round in my head - I love it!

The challenges for this card are actually House Mouse with a vintage theme, the summertime blues for Simon Says (so I ought to be singing that really), and this sketch from Sketch Saturday which again I rotated clockwise. I always seem to chose an image which is the other way round from the sketch - I'm just contrary, hehee.

And I'm just going to say that I'd like to enter the Lili of the Valley challenge of 4 seasons (with summer, obviously) but they've recently changed their rules so that you can only enter if you've used their stamps or die-cuts. I have used one of their sentiments inside - it's worth a try, but I don't blame them if that doesn't count. I did buy a sentiment pack and one other stamp from them, but I couldn't find anything else that got me excited, so I'll probably end up taking them off my list of challenge blogs to follow. This is a shame because their challenges are inspiring and I enjoy the blog, but there it is. A bit of customer feedback there!

So here we are. This adorable stamp is House Mouse of course, coloured with Copics. The blue paper is from Rebecca Sower, and the patterned paper is Crafty Secrets Heart-warming Vintage collection. I punched the doily shape with my Carla Crafts Macaron punch. How cute is that!
