It's entirely your choice what you make - card, Lay out, atc, etc anything goes as long as it features at least one House Mouse or Friends image and follows this weeks theme.

Here's what our lovely DT have produced and don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!
Junk................Safety pin.

Junk.........Old ribbon scraps used on the left.
Junk............Twine used on right.
Junk.................Floral wire.

Junk.............Golf tee found in drawer (don't tell her hubby but i think she nicked it from - only joking hun :-)

Fun stuff, girls!! I sure need to clean out my junk drawer, though!

CraftyTracy said...

beautiful Ideas ladies, I really struggled this week.


Els G. said...

What a great idea! The DT cards are really amazing!
I wonder how big 'junk' could be... our central heating fell out 3 days ago (brrr!), maybe a few mice here and there might help to start it up again! Anyway, looking around for junk will definitely keep me warm, lol! I must admit though that life is even a bit more romantic now the house is getting colder: nothing as cozy as the two of us all snuggled up in our couch underneath a big blanket! But I DO miss the comfort of my central heating!
Off now looking for some (minor) junk!
Happy Monday to you all.

Wonderful theme, or least it would be were I at home, I've tons of the stuff (junk that is) but I haven't brought any on holiday with me. I'm sure I'll find something, somewhere.

I just started following your fantastic blog this week after purchasing my first two House Mouse stamps. What a fantastic blog you have here.
I had a try at the challenge for the first time and you can find my attempt on my blog..
I cant work out how to link it...sorry!

Kitty Mom said...

This was a fun challenge. I had to think all week long which piece of junk I would use. I made 2 cards, one using a bamboo skewer (I don't do fondue so why do I have this) and the other I used a scrap of bubble wrap to 'stamp' a background. My cards are in my SCS gallery at
