A Mice Day For Walkies

Well it's definitely autumnal weather and that sets the theme for my card today.

I've used a decoupage sheet from the Joanna Sheen House Mouse Decoupage cd which I printed onto normal cardstock so that I could shape the edges of the pieces better and give a more rounded effect to the dog and mice. I used some cream pearlescent card for matting and I'm not sure of the background paper as it was a loose sheet. The sentiment is LOTV cut with a nesting die and the ribbon, flowers and pearls are from my stash. I do love House Mouse images as these cheeky little mice are guaranteed to break out a smile and brighten even the chilliest autumn day,

and here's a view of the layers

I shall enter this in the following challenges

House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'shape it up or anything goes'
Words 2 Craft By challenge 'happiness is a warm puppy'
Crafty Ribbons challenge 'animal magic'
Simon Says Monday challenge 'autumn'
CD Sunday challenge 'paws'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'any image'
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge 'shades of autumn'

So that's it from me for today. Hope you all have a great weekend and for those in the UK enjoy the extra hour lie in tomorrow.

A delightful card, brings a smile to your face the minute you see it. That's a lot of snipping, but such a great result. Thanks for sharing it with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

This card could not be more endearing! And how fun it was to read all about your creative process! You had such amazing attention to detail and you really brought this scene to life through your coloring skills and the way you arranged all the adorable critters. This made me smile and I'm so glad you shared your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
