Ballooning for Berries

Sorry If I've not visited you, blogging friends, I've been having internet problems. It's Virgin Media's fault ,3 times now, fingers crossed it's fixed for good now.
When I saw the house mouse challenge this fortnight was fruits, I thought that ruled me out, no fruity hm stamps, then I remembered my lovely blog pal Pinky had sent me some hm stamped images a while ago,quick shufty though , and I found this super cute image called " Ballooning For Berries". The little house mouse better look out for the birds,one poke with their beaks and pop!
I've coloured with promarkers and the papers are raspberry road,mag free gift. The scene is enough on the card,so I kept it simple with just a bit of matt and layering.

This is a beautiful scene and your coloring is superb. I love the background paper and I'm glad to see you let the scene speak for itself by just matting. Of course I love the CAS style anyway. I'm sorry to here Bob's working on his special day. I do hope you enjoy your meal this evening. Thanks for sharing this lovely card with us all today.

Good on Pinky, she's a bit of a HM fan I know.

Great card you created with the image Jane and love the little humming birds (not sure if they are, but they might be).

Hope your tinternet soon gets sorted, can't live with it, can't live without it.

Thanks for joining in at Craft a Scene again this month.

Happy Birthday to Bob, hope he didn't have to work too hard Jane. Love your card and its reminded me of the image so I might squeeze one in lol. Would love to go out for a meal but between my gall stones and my teeth I will have to stick to home made soup lol. Have a lovely evening together.
