Cutie Lil Mousey xx

Ohh I love him xxx

And I thought he was perfect to have a go at this weeks WOJ challenge whch is based on a beautiful sketch by Donalda xxx

Up until today, I only had 2 WOJ stamps to me name, and I felt a bit left out not being able to do their challenges. Well I could have, but only at Christmas cos they are both seasonal images!!!

So I was a teeny bit naughty and I treated myself to a couple. Well 4 to be exact, unless my other half is reading this, in which case it was just the one love, lol xxx

I can't remember the last time I did a card that was not square, apart from when I've been doing nestie demos!! It was a bit of a change, but I am more in my comfort zone with a 6x6 square card base.

The papers are PP and Willow and the punch is .... not my MSBP, but a Fiskars lovely. The photo corners I got from the Paper Mill Shop and the flowers were punched and coloured and generally tarted up by moi (PMs and doodles). The buttons were from Poppicrafts

Not the usual angle cos I couldn't get my head around the best way to take this. But at least you can see them there flower things I did.

I'm doing an all day workshop tomorrow for Creative Pastimes. And I've only gone and tipped a scalding hot just been made drink of herbal tea (raspberry and echinacea, whatever that is!!) all over my hand - dope!!! That's what you get when you are too busy watching Bob Geldoff telling all and sundry that he does not like Mondays!! Well matey boy, I don't like hot tea all over me hand so I know how you feel !!! It's ok now - cold water is a wonderful thing, but what a dozy mare I am at times!!!

So I'm off to watch the rest of the top 100 No 1s on one of the MTV channels!! Rich and I are having a bet on what will be the top No 1. We both thought Bohemian Rhapsody would be in the top 3 but that is only No 9.

What will it be I wonder? I'll let you know tomorrow.

Have a fab Saturday xxxx

Love this hun, this is such a fab image and I adore WOJ too - seems wrong not to order few, in fact it would be just plain rude, lol. Hope you rhand is ok now. Didn't see the number 1's so come on who was it??? I am thinking an x factor person but depends when programme was made. Have a fab day - wish I lived closer cos I could come and learn all your craftiness and ask loads of dumb questions (well, there is always one isn't there!!)
