Apples and mice.......




Happy Sunday to everyone... Yes I know it is almost the end of the weekend, but what the heck it is only the second week of the year. Here in SA we are having a rainy cool day.... I usually love it, but we have had so many rainy cool days and our summer is going by very quickly. At least I have been able to make a few cards. Here is one of them.
I am entering this one in the Karen's doodles challenge No.44 following the sketch given.

Paper - Red card, matted white and DP from Marieke Vermeulen designs that I printed.
Image from Karen's doodles coloured with Distress inkpads, cut with a Nestability and mounted onto a red cutout.

Borders were cut in red and green with a die from Crealies.
Sentiment was computer generated and cut with a scolloped Nestie.
Finished off with an apple brad.
On the inside I used the same DP paper that had an apple in the corner and a white cutout for the message.

Hope you all have a wonderful week. Will be back soon. Warm wishes.

This rain can really stop now! I know we need it, but this is ridiculous!
Love your card. Work starts tomorrow, so I won't be around as much or have as much time to play, but at least I will be able to buy some new stash soon>

Send some rain our way, but not too much now, we don't want floods! I just LOVE your card Ursula. Such lovely colours and I adore gingham paper. Happy Sunday to you.

Beautiful card, Ursula. The little mouse is so cute and the gingham paper "pop" that image.
