House Mouse Card

Who stole my week!

I can't believe its over a week since I last posted - and made a card! especially after telling you all of my good intentions to be a better blogger!!!  I think it was John Lennon who said "You make plans and then Life happens"

We had planned to decorate the Living Room earlier in the year, but never quite got round to it, so re-scheduled for the Autumn, but with the weather being a bit cold last week DH decided it was as good a time as any, so thats what happened!

Trying to get back to normal now and have made my card for the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge before its too late.  The theme is Here Comes Summer and I have used one of the unmounted 'Summer' stamps that I won on the last HM & Friens Blog Hop a while ago. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and added Glossy Accents and Glamour Dust on the ice cubes. I added the LOTV Postcard - I wrote the message 'Having a mice time'  - well, they do look as if they are!  The sentiment is one of the unmounted ones as well.

I am also entering this card in - My Time to Craft challenge - Here Comes Summer
    Sparkles Form challenge - At the Beach
Thanks for looking and if you like what you see, please leave a comment and I will come and visit you, but for now I'm off to do a catch up around Blogland to see what everyone has been up to and say hello.

A beautiful card Avril - love the layering and the colours.
I'm sure your finished decor will be well worth the upheaval, although it doesn't seem that way when you are actually doing it!! Hugs, Sylvia xxx
