House Mouse - Fruity?

Well - where has the week gone! I can't blame DD this time, as she went back to Preston on Friday.
I think its just a case of catching up on everything - blog comments - which was a priority  as well as washing, ironing, housework and of course homework for the never ending curtains. One pair is finished and they look great, although not up yet, but the finished look with 'hand-made' is worth the effort!

I had planned a 'play day' today, but DH asked for a 'hand' with the "finishing" of the Summerhouse (yes the one he started months ago) - I  couldn't really say 'no' as I had been out most of yesterday meeting some friends for a 'girly' lunch. So, this is another short post to enter my card for the House Mouse challenge, which is 'To see fruit '.  I didn't have a stamp with HM and Fruit so this (lemonade! or whatever) image was the nearest - I did add extra lemons to the image, so I hope this will do.  Its not that long since I made a card using this image so to make it different I made it into an easel card. The papers are 'old' freebies from some magazine, the image is  coloured with Promarkers, and I used stickles and  Glossy Accents on the ice cubes. The sentiment was done on the computer.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
  Simon Says - Food & Drink
  Anything Goes challenge - Birthdays
  Celebrate the Occasion - Easel card
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
  Frosted Designs - Friday challenge - Animals
  I Love Promarkers - Easel Card

That's it for now and thanks for looking.
