House Mouse # 54 'Movies' meets Colour Create # 29 'Red, Yellow, Black and White'.....


Good morning folks!

I'm back again with another card, on a bit of a roll this week!! This card is for the House Mouse Challenge where the theme is movies and also Colour Create where the colours this fortnight are red, yellow, black and white.


I think the House Mouse theme is a brilliant idea and I had a good laugh looking at all the DT entries..... some brilliant ideas girls! Well I don't have too many HM stamps but my fave is definitely the one of used here and straight away I thought of The Bee Movie. It's a great kids film but there's lots of clever reference to stuff which adults can appreciate, I can thoroughly recommend it if you haven't yet seen it! The colours at Colour Create are certainly quite a challenge, but I was able to create the idea of film reels across the top and bottom of my card to incorporate the black and then of course the bee costumes are yellow. Overall I've had quite a bright and colourful week so far, haven't I?

The papers I've used are from the Basic Grey June Bug collection again....... it's well and truly getting an airing now!! The film strips are Bazzill Just the Edge strips and I've coloured the little rabbits with Poly and Koh pencils and added some glitter to the wings..... everything else is from my stash.

Well I'll love you and leave you then, working again (groan)....... enjoy the rest of your day ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xx

Great job combining these two challenges, Tara. I also think you did a great job with the June Bug papers...for some reason I find this the most difficult collection to work with. Don't get me wrong, I like it as much as many of the BG collections, I just have a more difficult time with it. Love the combo you used :)

This card is even more stunning in real life, thank you so much Tara ! The colour combo is just fantastic and the details you have added are amazing like the film strip and the pearls and glittery wings.

Thank you also for my beautiful present, you really cheered me up when I most needed it too. What a true and special friend you really are.

Huge hugs to you,
