Chocolate Mouse

Hi everyone and thank you for all your best wishes and lovely comments about my new baby granddaughter. I've still got a smile a mile wide when I look at her photo. Carole who is one of the playmates over at Pixie's Playground has also just become a grandma to a wonderful baby boy so we may just be doing a bit of matchmaking in the future.

I'm just popping by with a very quick make today using another of those House Mouse decoupage sheets I printed off. I matted it onto a piece of red paper which I salvaged from a christmas card and then stuck it straight onto a card blank. I did the same with the sentiment and then added all the leftover 'sweets'

I shall enter this in the following challenges

House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'rain or shine / anything goes'
Gruffies & Guests challenge 'a splash of orange for Henry / anything goes'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'anything goes + option of a sketch'
Sparkles Monthly challenge 'something for the males'

Well I'm off now to search for my mojo (which is probably hiding in a box of chocolates somewhere) as there are a couple of challenges I want to join in with. Thanks for popping by and for taking the time to leave your greatly appreciated comments.
