It's time for a little mouse

Well it was a good thing I made this early in the morning as the day off did not go to plan. My Dad popped over and though I got a few cards done before he arrived I have got nothing done since as I ended up getting his help and some of his power tools to attack the ivy that is threatening to take over the back of my house. well a few bags later and with believe it or not the use of a power saw we have cut it down now I just need to get some killer stuff to paint all over it. I do HATE ivy I have no idea why the lady we rent from wanted it but I just can't stand it anymore and it is going to wreck her house so now I am doing battle with it wish me luck lol :D
Right now what you are really here for my card for the current House mouse challenge. Well this time it is a first for me as I don't think I have ever made and ATC before but that is what the lovely DT at House Mouse Challenge Blog.

I have been itching to get this little cutie inked up and it is just the perfect size for an ATC. she is from the close shave set from Joanna Sheen. I have coloured him with pro markers. All the edges have been inked with brilliance so they sparkle. I made the ATC then put it on a card. It is strange but I think part of the reason I have not made any ATC's is that I had no idea what I would do with them. Now I know so get ready for some more as this was a lot of fun to make :D The DP is from First Editions bird song pack available from Crafty Emma's Store and so is the sentiment. The ribbon is from my stash. The flowers are from Mulberry Crafts UK I have added some sparkle to them with a clear sakura stardust pen.


I am entering this card/ATC for the following challenges:
House /mouse challenge - Make and ATC
Anything goes - Flowers
Craft your passion - Anything goes
Sparkles Challenge - One for the girls
