Utterly adorable! I can see how addictive those little house mouse stamps could be - I'd better not even start down that road! Thank you for listing your Promarker colours. I have recently bought some and am practising hard at the moment! I've always used coloured pencils and mineral oil up to now. It's very helpful to see exactly what you used as it will help me learn about some colour combinations that work. xx

Hi Nic gorgeous card - great colours and fab image and colouring as always. Sorry to hear you have had such a bad day at work. I think we all have days like that once in a while but we need to look forward and be positive - at least you have your wonderful creations to take your mind off it. Sarahxx

Hey Coops, you're human. Don't let it get to ya. I had several melt downs in work at one point my boss was afraid to ask me to do anything incase I burst into tears so hey there's always a plus side. Desperate attempt to make ya smile... sorry. Great card, saw these house mouse stamps and i'm thinking I'm gonna like them a lot too.
