House mice that look strangely like bears

It is so nice that the sun has come back even if it is not as sunny as it has been. I really need to do a lot of work in my garden it is such a mess. Maybe I will give it a go tomorrow.
My card is for the brilliant house mouse blog hop there are loads of prises up for grabs so it is well worth taking a look :D
Now I know that these two do look strangely like bears but they are gruffies which are created by the same people. This image is available as a stamp but I have used the Joanna sheen decoupage version. It took quite a while to cut it out but I am happy with the result. I am going to give this to my Dad as he is going away for a motor biking weekend and I thought this image was just perfect :D
Oh and if you like the papers they are from 2 different digi set gingham and checks and simple dotty that you can get from Bearly Mine along with many more gorgeous digi sets and discs. They are brilliant value and you can print the papers again and again. If that was not good enough they will be having a bank holiday sale from tomorrow (Fri 28th) so they will be even better value!
This card is for the following challenges:
House Mouse Challenge Blog - Good bye
My Time to craft - Vivid colours
Charisma Cardz - Going round in circles
