There is a fairly new challenge blog out there called Gruffles and Friends which is another range of characters from the House Mouse range, and you can enter cards that are anything to do with ellen Jarecki's characters.
So the challenge at the moment is Anything Goes so I thought I would throw in this card which I made using the House Mouse Christmas CD that comes with a wonderful idea book too.
I have to confess that I bought this CD when it forst came out, but didn't get around to using it until this Christmas season, because I got a bit wrapped up in a number of very intricate Thomas Kinkade decoupage cards!
I really love this little image as it is cute but not too cute and a lot of people like to feed the Garden birds in the winter (me included!) so, in this case, this was a perfect card for my In-Laws.
Well that's it from me for today.
I hope you like what you see and I look forward to having you visit again soon.
Bye for now.

Wow - it's been quite some time since I posted! I have to admit, I have had very little time for blogging or crafting lately, but sometimes it's good to take a step back for a while don't you think!
Of course, card making is my first love, crafty wise, especially stamping and colouring, but this year I really want to try out some new crafts - a bit more jewellery making, and I would also like to learn how to crochet!
Meanwhile - back to card making and a picture that didn't come out to well, as the girl looks a bit wishy washy. Unfortunately the card is already gone, so I can't take another photo but hopefully you get the idea :-)
The image is from Sugar Nellie and she is such a sweetie - for some reason I felt like she needed pink hair! The papers that you see are from Nitwits and I really like them because they are predominantly black with just a hint of colour - quite unusual I thought. Finally I used some of my favourite tiny buttons from Do Crafts to finish off.
So - on to a few challenges that I would like to enter:
Thanks for stopping by today. I wish you all a happy and relaxing Sunday and see you all next time.

Sadly, unless you already have the magazine, you won't be able to get these items as they are produced purely to go with the mag and once it's gone it's gone.
The people I made this for were moving to a village, so I kept the colours on this card a little bit vintage, to match with their new surroundings.
As usual I have a few challenges to enter, so here goes:
Thanks for stopping by today and a very Happy New Year to all my visitors.
