My Time to Craft Challenge - 'Mice' and Easy!

The challenge this week at My Time to Craft is 'Mice' and Easy!
So we would love to see all your cards or projects featuring a little furry fella!!

For my card I used a House Mouse image and coloured it with watercolours then highlighted round the edges with pencils.

I didn't want to over-shadow the image so I simply added a ribbon and peel off greeting.

I'm liking simple style cards at the moment and as I'm on a craft spending ban that's just as well, as I've got to be a little bit more frugal I suppose!!

Thanks for looking as always, I'm behind on my blog hopping this week, but that's nothing new he he!!

Love Becky xx

Simply stunning Becky - I lvoe those iclke mice and the simplicity of this card. I too am going for less fussy cards (most of the time) and the not buying stash until I have used is slowly killing me ... although I did buy a stamp today ... well I have to have something for your Sketch and Stash don't I?
