These Mice are Breeding!!!

And so are the birthday cards for Paul!! This is the last one for him, I promise LOL (least I hope!)

Anyway these little mice are breeding, I had another play with a different image and made up a different card, this one will probably be from Maddison for her Daddy.


The papers are basic grey, the deep brown one I used to mount the image and also added part of it to the card which I embossed with the cuttlebug. The card being quite thick cracked in places and left bits of white showing through, so I just dragged my craft knife (scalpel) over it to rough up a few more edges! 
The colour of the cheese is far from perfect, this was attempt number 4 at colouring this cheese and believe it or not, there are 8 different colours on there just trying to get it right!! Can anyone give me some good copic or promarker colours for cheese please then I may be able to use this stamp again! ARGH! 
I used my EK success binder punch and added a sentiment from the same set of House Mouse Stamps. 

I also decorated the inside of this one as well! 


This little mousey I absolutely love, but feel he is too small to make a nice card with him unless it was a tiny card, maybe I should make a couple of tiny ones! 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges please. 



Now before you run away the one and only Fabulous Mary J has given me an award!! 


For this award, I have to tell you 3 things about myself, now then where do I start ...
1.
2.
3. 

Nope sorry, I just can't think what to put, other than the fact I am so shattered, my beautiful Princess Maddison is very very poorly and keeps me up most nights, she seems to be an insomniac just like her Daddy!! 

Anyway I have to pass it onto 5 people ... 

Rainmac - Sarah
Flourgirl - Karen
Marg - Margaret
Wanna-Be-Rich - Claire
K's Crafty Corner - K (can't tell you her real name or she might send skulls to kill me! LOL)

Anyway thanks Mary honey! I appreciate it xxx
