Another Chocolate Anyone?

Hi everyone. Sorry I've not been around visiting for a few days but I've been so busy and had no time at all for crafting and very little time for switching on the laptop. Don't you just hate it when everyday things get in the way of crafty time!! - anyway I've managed to get a card made today.

Now I like mice and think they are actually such cute little creatures as shown in this fabulous decoupage which is from the House Mouse 'Fruit and Nut' collection. The spotty paper is one of my loose sheets, the flowers are cut from another sheet of paper and the sentiment is recycled from an old card.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Gruffies & Guests challenge 'Anything goes + option lace'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Anything goes'
My Craft Creations challenge 'Anything goes'
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT challenge 'Birthday'
As You Like It challenge 'Favourite animal and why'
Divas By Design challenge 'Anything goes + birthday blog hop'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything goes + option easter treat holder'
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'Happy birthday'
Totally PaperCrafts challenge 'Pastels'
Live & Love Crafts challenge 'Chocolate'

Thanks for popping by and I'll be round to see you over the weekend

Nearly back to normal, scary just how lost I've been a week without a computer.

Had I had one I was going to mail you to say what a genius little stitching stamp in that set, I always struggle with the sewing machine and the stamp is brilliant.

Super card and hope you have a good weekend.

Lovely card. I've had the same problem with everyday life getting in the way of crafting.! At least there's a bank holiday on the horizon! Have a good weekend.

Fabulous card Andrea. I don't mind mice either...I had a white one when I was a teenager! I love how the image just pops from your card. The pink polka dot paper suits the image perfectly. Thanks so much for joining our Birthday challenge at LCI this fortnight xx

Hi Andrea,
Sweet card with an adorable stamp! That's how I felt yesterday after having finished off what was left of the blueberry cheese cake and toffee sauce. :-) Happy Easter!
