Sleepy Mouse

My posts are getting later and later at the moment, I think I must be coming down with something - yesterday I decided to tidy my craft room and today I thought I would change my blog template.  I decided to switch from a 2 column design to a 3 column design - BIG MISTAKE - it took me absolutely ages to sort everything out.

 I have made this card following the great sketch over at The Sweet Stop:

I love House Mouse and I don't make nearly enough cards with them, something I intend to remedy.  I think this image is called 'Poppy bedtime'.  I cut it out with a circle die and added a couple of layers of decoupage.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card as usual:

Card Recipe:

Image:  Joanna Sheen - House Mouse
Papers:  Poppy paper - Joanna Sheen - House Mouse Project Book, stripy paper from stash
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Standard Circle and Scalloped Circle,
Martha Stewart - Scalloped edge punch,
Whimsy Stamps - Corner die
Embellishments: Ribbon, button and twine from stash
Sentiment:  Peel-off from stash
