Carol's Fun Sketch meets DieCut Dreams (and a sneaky sneak-peak!)

Good morning all, bit of a dull day here in Shropshire but the sun is threatening to pop through the clouds, so fingers crossed.

This is my entry for challenges over at Carol's Fun Sketch and DieCut Dreams, whose theme this week is "Tea for Two"

The image is a HouseMouse stamp, that my wonderful friend Carly stamped out for me cos she knows I'm a HUGE HouseMouse fan, I think they're so sweet, I just love 'em to bits (I'm a big fan of mice and rats in real life too) and so as soon as I saw the theme I knew I was going to use this image and I've coloured him with ProMarkers. The other stamp on the side of the card is another sneak peek from the new Stampin' Up! catty and is from the same set as the mushrooms on my card the other day - Queue Up! I thought it would make a good border and used it instead of a ribbon down the side of my card, I've coloured this with SU! markers to match up with the DSP's & cardstock -both SU! The c/s is Tempting Turquoise and the DSPs is from Rainbow Sherbert, another set sadly retiring at the end of this month! The sentiment has been done on my 'puter and the flower is from my stash.

The card's much brighter in real life, but I took the pic last night, so it's a bit dull

I love this card, but it's because of the image, I don't think it's possible to make a bad card with this little fella! Let's hope I don't prove myself wrong now LOL!!!

TFL & have a good day
