Three Challenges, One Card And More Snow

I was just in the mood for a challenge-fest today as the weather has scuppered other plans (visiting a friend for hot chocolate and a natter) so I've stayed home, had the hot chocolate and had a little play.  However, I spent so long on this one card that I'll just have to have another play tomorrow.  Shame!

I'd like to enter this one for three challenges:
Sketch Saturday No 85
ABC Challenge L is for Layering and
Cute Card Thursday All New

It's another fabulous Sketch Saturday sketch this week

and it gave me ample opportunity to use loads of layers, a la ABC, and lots of new stuff for CCT!

I've used my new Greeting Farm "Library Mouse" stamp from Bunny-Zoe's Crafts (thanks Nikki), and my new Martha Stewart lattice corner punch and new packet of pink pearls.  Papers are a mix of DCWV and Papermania.  Image coloured with Copics and ProMarkers.  Flowers punched with small and medium Woodware punches.

I know the mouse is better suited to male cards, but I think he works just as well with a pile of "chick lit" in his arms!

And finally, I leave you with an update on the snow .... it's been pretty constant since mid morning and quite heavy.  I reckon we've had at least another inch and a half just today.

Brrrrrr.  Now going to join my little furry fella (and I do mean the cat) in the armchair with a cuppa and my book for a little while before I think about dinner.

Hugs, Squirrel xxx
