House Mouse "summer days" just chill

Well I wouldn't call it a hot summers day , but the sun is out ,the flowers are blooming and the washing is blowing on the line.

I've not used my house mouse and friends for a while , they are well over due an airing . This cute stamp from the summer chill out set bey Joanna Sheen is perfect for the "House Mouse challenge : sunny days "
I  coloured with pro and flex markers and highlighted the lemon peel with modge podge (you can see this in the picture taken in the garden above ). The bp is man made by first edition. My card is for a man so I've not put on any fancy embellishments just  simply let the cute  image and fab paper stand out.

other challenges : 
Rubies rainbow : animals
I love pro markers : what ever the weather
Tip Top Tuesday : here comes summer

hope you enjoy some sun today . janex

At least it's an improvement on all that rain Jane, we had well over and inch yesterday - hubby said we needed it of course.

Super card here, that's certainly got a summer feel to it.

So glad you dusted your HM stamp off and joined us for the fun at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Love your card, and how you matched the colors in the background paper to your image. Sentiment is perfect!

Ah, yes, who doesn't enjoy a refreshingly cool glass of lemonade on a hot summer's day -- or a sunny day itself! Great card, and I love this yellow and teal color combination. Thanks for entering the House Mouse challenge and good luck on the draw.
