Mice Summer Days

It's another lovely day here in the East Midlands and I've managed to get the last pair of curtains washed and hung out on the line. I don't know about you but I love drying washing outside in the sun as it feels and smells so fresh (gosh, don't I sound a sad old person but at least I'm easily pleased!)

Anyway here's my card featuring one of those fabulous Joanna Sheen House Mouse decoupage sheets. The larger background paper is Dovecraft and the checked piece is from my snippets box. I used a LOTV stamp for the sentiment and the ribbon, flowers and pearls are from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'all about holidays / anything goes'
Gruffies & Guests challenge 'lavender and lace / anything goes'
The Ribbon Girl card challenge 'animals'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'summer colours'
Live & Love Crafts challenge 'in the garden'
Paper Creator's Crafts challenge 'anything goes'
Crafting From the Heart challenge 'anything goes'
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge 'fun in the sun' (2nd entry)

Thanks for popping by today and I hope the rest of the week goes well for you. I'm off to have a bit off fun in the garden - or at least sit out and soak up the sun.


  1. A fabulous card Andrea, such a wonder summer image and great decoupage.
    I must be easily pleased as well, I love to get the washing dried outside - it's easier to iron as well!

  2. I think I need to move up your way Andrea, would you believe we have had the heating back on the last few days.

    But at least your card is bright and sunny with all those pretty flowers and colours.
