Crafting this week...

Somehow I don't seem to have had much time for crafting this week...

I started off playing with this die cum stencil. It has been lying around my craft room for ages
 but I have never got around to using it.
 So I ran it through the Big Shot
 and then using a small stencilling brush and Jenni Bowlin's 'cough syrup' ink I got this far:

Now what to do with it?

Well, I had the sketch for the Mojo Monday 284 challenge so I wondered how I might use it there...

I started looking through my stash and found a House Mouse image. I though maybe I could make the card fit the Mojo Monday Sketch and the following challenge too:

It's Ribbons & Pearls for Mousey Challenge #HMFMC140

And this is my card...

Then I noticed a challenge involving silhouettes - and I remembered a stamp set I have from Ippity called 'So this is Love' - there is a lovely silhouette of a bouquet of flowers...

I quickly looked in my 'black' scrap bag and this is what appeared - another double fold gate:

Anyway, bedtime!!
