Hi, everyone, hope you are all well. Its another miserable day - the rain seems to be back with a vengeance.
Sorry I haven't been around much, we are understaffed at work and by the time I get home I'm too tired to do anything. I have however managed to make a card - I was determined. My card has been inspired by a couple of my new dies, which I was determined to use, and this is what I came up with, (sorry the photo isn't very good, the light is terrible)


papers - papermania 'lucy cromwell'
image - house mouse - 'spring - tulip'
fence die - marianne creatable
arboscello tree/fancy blossoms - memory box
leaves/swirls - cheery lynn
gems - bazzill bling
coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Joanna Sheen Challenge - 'summer daze'
Allsorts Challenge - week #161 'in bloom'
I love Promarkers - challenge #123 'anything goes' 
Penny Black & More @ Allsorts - July Challenge 'summer blooms'

Papertake Weekly Challenge - anything goes'
Tuesday Throwdown - challenge #104 'summertime'
The Poodles Parlour - 'cute and/or cuddly'
Tuesday Alchemy - challenge #21 'anything goes'


  1. Hi Kim
    I can fully understand your absence now and again and I wouldn't give it another thought sweetie. Our crafting must stay fun or what is the point. If we rush to do something just to fill the blog, we have defeated its purpose.
    However, it is lovely to see your card and thanks for sharing it.
    I adore the diecuts, especially that tree, it really looks like the mouse is falling out of it. I hope you have a good rest this evening.
    Regards Linda x

  2. Hello Kim..

    Your card is lovely, those dies are gorgeous. Love how you have made the mouse look like it's in the tree. It flows so well..BEAUTIFUL..

    Hope you manage to get a good rest this evening.. Life just never seems to have enough hours in the day.. I totally understand what you mean about being too tired. I spend most of my days thinking and looking forward to evenings when all jobs are done and the boys are in bed but by then I am usually ready for bed myself.. lol.

    Hugs Kelly
