Some Mousey NBUS

On Wednesday my card was made using my oldest NBUS stamp and today I'm using my newest NBUS stamp to make another visit to Darnell's Playhouse. There's still a week left for you to sort out your unused crafty schtuff and join in the fun, and as a huge bonus she has a lot of very generous sponsors lined up too.

I received this wonderful House Mouse 'watermelon mice' along with some fabulous candy sent to me by the lovely Lols  (Thank you again for the super goodies) and no way was it going into the cupboard before being inked up. I used my usual Promarkers for colouring and papers which were magazine freebies. The design is kept simple and I decided to keep it sentiment-free to be used for any occasion.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Darnell's NBUS challenge #5 'use your never-before-used-schtuff'

Simon Says STAMPtember challenge 'use a stamp + blog hop'

House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'back to school / anything goes'

Gruffies & Guests challenge 'make it fruity / anything goes'

I Love Promarkers challenge 'sweet treats'
