Simple but pretty

Hello everyone,

Has anyone seen that mouse................................................................it WAS in the bath.

But it ain't no more............................................................................................................

Under exteme stress and fear of a tiny runaway mouse that has grown to the size of a small dog in only a few  hours since my last post,I managed to pull a card together.




Gorgeous image was a freebie from Carmen but this link takes you to her 'Steampunk boots' they rock...

I dont think the links last too long, but she has some fabulous freebies.

Coloured with my pencils and added glitter here and there on the wings, the border along the bottom of the boat is my Fiskars lacy punch, punched card stock in navy and white for the sea, added some blings.

The lonely butterfly up the top was added as I had a boo boo and you could see it.

Entering this card in a challenge at Flutter by Wednesday

OK...I've checked behind me...and he's not there....time to move on.....

Luv CHRISSYxx

You are such a hoot......laughing myself silly with that last post, got to be a classic and one of a kind story. Keep the plug in the bathtub so he can't come back up the drain. Pesky little animals...definately time to call the exterminator. Now with that said, the card is so pretty with those gorgeous butterflies. Now if you hadn't told us we'd never know that was to cover a boo boo.......LOL Have a fab weekend! "Love & Hugs" Carol

Hi Chrissy, I expect the little fellow has gone to join his family members who are MILES away, he probably got a cab a couple of hours ago, you'll never see him again!....Great card and I love the lacey sea, very clever idea and as always your colouring is fab, great image with those butterfly sails, I love it! Have a great day, hugs, Teresa x
