House Mouse

As I said in my earlier post today,  the weather wasn't very good yesterday - perfect for crafting, so gave myself the 'day off' - well I deserved it!  DD's boyfriend has been staying this last week, and this weekend they have gone back to Preston for his Graduation on Monday, then back here to stay until next weekend, so I had to make the most of the peace and quiet!

I made my card for the current House Mouse Challenge which is - Make a Splash.  I'm not too sure whether this is water in the glass, doesn't look like it from the look on his cute face - but it is wet!  The image is coloured with Promarkers and I added Glossy Accents mixed with Glamour Dust to the ice cubes to make them stand out, and Glamour Dust around the glass.  The flower petals have pink glitter on them as the flower started out 'pink' but after picking the papers, (Picnic in the Park) which were a freebie with a card mag, it was changed to red.  The flower us punched using a 5 petal punch and a smaller cherry blossom one.
The sentiment was done on the computer.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
  Sweet Stampin - Cute & Cuddly
  Dutch Dare - Summer Fun
  Fussy Wuzzy - Get Punchy
  Crafty Calendar - Water Theme
  Totally Gorjuss - Summer Fun

Almost forgot to tell you, I was picked as One of the Top Three for my Clarity Corset - Circle card at Delicious Doodles !!!

That's it for now,

Thanks for looking, and if you like what you see, let me know and I will come and visit you.
