This weeks challenge is a recipe - a circle, a scallop and 2 squares brought to by: Amy!

I love High Hopes little 'Mouse Tales' and thought he looked like a really studious little guy! I embossed him in black and coloured him with Tombows and Distress Inks. I used a denim colour for the card and added some navy cardstock and red cardstock. In my scrap bin I found this little red gingham check. I used my EK success punch to make the edges on the navy layer. I added an apple at the bottom, a ruler, and a couple of funky paper clips as embellishments. I see a school theme here. Great card for a teacher don't you think.

Okay so I used my Stickles too - but I was not too impressed with what it did to the book my little mouse buddy is holding. I always use a little paint brush to put my Stickles on with but this time I used red Stickles (there was my first mistake - as it didn't match as I expected) and I usually just go along the edge but I didn't like it so I spread it with my paint brush -second mistake) Oh well in the picture it kinda looks, well like suede. Yeah suede! There's an upside to everything LOL...

Stickles is the last thing I put on my cards so when its not to my liking I'm stuck with it (no pun intended).

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week! May your Stickles always land where you want it to!!
