House Mouse Challenge Blog hop



Have actually managed to finish this card, its taken all week! I really love these cute mice and the DT's on the House Mouse challenge 'New Beginnings' have done some great cards!

My image is from one of the unmounted Summer sets but thought it was just right for a retirement card that I needed to make. I coloured him with ProMarkers and used the Blender pen for his body in the glass and to make it look 'liquid' I added 3D Gloss, it doesn't show too well in the photo though, the weatherman promised 'sunny spells' but they haven't arrived, so a dull photo I'm afraid.

The House Mouse & Friends Monthly challenge is 'Celebrate' so this card fits that one as well

That's it for now, off to the 'blog hop' (my afternoon taken care of)

Thanks for looking,

Avril
