The Official Joanna Sheen Challenge blog!!

 Hello folks!  Well here I am with another announcement..... The news is out! .... The Official Joanna Sheen Challenge blog goes live on 1st December and I'm on the design team! Yay! (ok that's enough exclamation marks for now) To celebrate the launch we will be having a blog hop during the week running up to the first challenge.  There are 9 prizes up for grabs... one with each of the DT members (super talented gals).  It will be from 24th-30th November.
 What better way to share the news than with a House Mouse card.  I made this one for Joanna's recent HM launch on Create & Craft.  The papers are by Papermania.  The image is coloured using Alcohol Markers.  I have used my Cricut  to die cut the the lattice border, the leaves, the oval and scalloped oval frame.  The flower is die cut using Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Sizzix die.  
 I used my Nestabilities to die cut the parenthesis square mats for my sentiment.
And added self adhesive pearls for the finishing touch.
I hope you'll be able to join in with lots of challenges over the coming months.  I can't wait to see what we create together.
Ciao for now!

Congrats Sandra, what a thrill, but Joanna would have been a fool not to have you on the DT, and Joanna is no fool.

This card is so sweet I love the way you have coloured the bird as he tones in so beautifully with the backing paper.

PS Looking forward to the challenges at La Sheen!
