Sally Atkins said...

Scrumptious card, Coops! I am so envious of that little guy who's fallen asleep on a cushion of yummy chocolate icing! I noticed you matted with card that you'd coloured with Promarkers - what a great idea, it hasn't occurred to me to do that before, and it means you get a perfect match! (I'm a bit slow!) xx

you might need to put a disclaimer in the envelope, "not to be eaten" its looks yunmmy, i love the image, the house mouse's are so so cute, i love the pearls that look like chocolate chips, just be careful your kitty cat doesnt find the mice and eats them :)
