Mousey Love

Hi everyone, well I reckon the postie must have read about my last post about my daughters cards as they arrived the very next day - only 4 weeks after being mailed. We're still waiting on the baby to make an appearance and I must admit to sitting by the phone and jumping every time it rings !

Anyway on to my card... the image is one of the many decoupage sheets I printed out from the Joanna Sheen 'House Mouse' decoupage cd (which is still on sale here at half price). The papers are loose sheets and the sentiment, pearls and ribbon are from my stash. The flowers are Poppystamps 'blooming posie' die with Stickles in the centres and the flourish behind the flowers is a Marianne die.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge 'love is all around / anything goes' (2nd entry)
Gruffies & Guests challenge 'a splash of orange for Henry / anything goes'
The ABC challenge 'A is for animals'
Time Out challenge 'inspired by words'
Poppystamps challenge 'crazy in love'
Pearly Sparkles challenge 'all you need is love... and pearls'  This is a new monthly challenge blog
Live & Love Crafts challenge 'love is in the air'
Noor! Design UK challenge 'love'
Paper Creator's Crafts challenge 'must be love'
Creatalicious challenge 'love is in the air'

A new supply of sticky pads arrived in the post today so I'm off now to make up some more of these little meecies. Thanks for popping by and for all your lovely comments.

This is so very pretty Andrea, the pink blooms carry the colours from the image and papers perfectly.

Always makes me wonder where post gets to, I sent some to Canada and the States on the same day, one got there in five days the other took well over a month.

Hope you get that call soon.
