Good evening to you all in the land of blog
I came home from work today and had no DT pieces to create, so decided to create something for Easter with my favourite little critters, yes you got it my little House Mousies :) (OK Mice)

I spotted the sketch at the Sketch and Stash challenge and I was away with it, pure relaxation time :)

So here is my creation
I converted back to the good old fashioned easel for this one.  I used a textured mint green card and believe it or not some vintage style papers that were free on a magazine I picked up, they are so pretty, not sure who they are by though sorry.  The bows and ribbon from a local department store, the little roses from Hobby Craft and the little pearls from stash.  Marianne Creatables used for the corners and Nellie Snellen Ovals for the image frame.  A decorative nesties tag holds the "Eggs" individual letter stamped sentiment.

So I am entering this into the following challenges
Sketch and Stash - Sketch (neglected stamp over two year old)
House Mouse - Easter 
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
OLLB - Happy Easter
Stamps R Us - Easter
Woodware - Anything Goes
Crafty Hos - Pastel Pink and Spring Green
Let's Ink It Up - Easter Creations

I would like to say hello to my new followers and thank you to my lovely visitors for the inspirational comments.

Have a great day tomorrow

Hugs Kate xx
