Afternoon crafters,quite pleasant here today, warm with a bit of sun. The couple who's wedding we went to where so lucky as the sun shone on beautiful North Wales all day and the evening was so warm. You would think the weather for July would be ok ,but after the heavy rain we have had since forever it seems that is not the case, so they were very blessed .
I went to Hobby Craft again last week ,for another mooch round ,and spotted these gorgeous retro papers "Happy Days" by do crafts , going on a stand. Quick flick through the 12x12 pad and then into my basket. I've used them on my card, cutting the adverts and a ticket out as a sentiment. I've teamed them with this adorable House Mouse image ,sew mice , unmounted set by Joanna Sheen.
The image is coloured with promarkers and a few eyelets and buttons for a finishing touch.
It's my Bob's birthday soon and I think he would like this card, he likes cute animals like me. We have 2 little girl cats,called Violet and Tipsy, that coming visiting the garden all the time,we have been fussing them today, Bob would love us to have them, Alfie my white poodle is having none of it!

with all the work and socialising I've done this past 2 weeks I'll be glad for a bit of peace and quite. Still got some of the loft to empty, the worse job ever. I have 3 big multi coloured bruises from being up there the other day,the car was full to the brim and headed for the local tip and my neighbours have lots of wood to burn on there stove.My hubby has asthma so can't go up there but is very happy to send me ,one of the boards I stood on sprang up , hit me on the shin and caused a great lump, I got down the ladder after about 2 hours, black from dirt and black and blue from bruises. Take my advice don't horde (this is rich coming from a crafter ) but if you do don't stick it in the loft.
enjoy the rest of the weekend. janex

Oh no - I don't do lofts. Nasty creepy crawlies get in there somehow.

Fab card.

No way would I go into the attack Jane, I cringe going into the shed lol. I am not a hoarder by nature but hubby is unfortunately and all the kids! Hope the bruises aren't too painful. Would you believe I have a big black bruise on my face from the dentist! I love your card, boy what a find with those papers, so brilliant. Will be keeping an eye out for those.Your card is just gorgeous.

Fab card Jane, I love how you've used the papers.

Clearing out the loft is well overdue in our house!

Hi Jane! I just love this fun card! The dp is PERFECT with your House Mouse stamp! And I love that you colored the pin cushion the pretty aqua color! LOVE IT!
So sorry to read about your bruises. They sound horribly painful! Please do take care!
