Pest Control

Hi all, Pest Control Officer Squirrel here, how are you today?  We've got mice in the garage.  Again.  We were getting ready to go out this morning and Toad went to the garage to get a rain coat.  Next thing I hear is him squealing like a girl.  Apparently he was "attacked" by a mouse.  Right.

Anyway, after a very nice trip out to a garden centre I had a rummage about in the garage and found the little meeces had made a very cozy nest in an old handbag.  Unfortunately, two escaped before I could get the bag outside, and number three is going to emerge to find a new home in the greenhouse.  I have baited a couple of no-kill traps with honey roast peanut butter so we'll wait and see what happens.

No use putting Vince out there, he's scared of mice ..........!

I made a quick CAS card this morning, and here it is:


Say hello to Aviator by Sugar Nellie.  Isn't he adorable?  And he was a joy to colour.  Sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set.  Simple DCWV matting and done.  Painting with Distress Inks (ReInkers).

Hugs, Sxx

What a cutie. Love how you've coloured him Squirrel. I've had a day off and so has hubby so we went out for the day. On my own I'd have happily stayed at home all day and done some crafting,

OMG what a fab job. When I saw this image on SN I fell in love with it but thought it would be too difficult to colour. Will have to have a rethink now. Hope your meeces move out v soon. Debs xx

Chrissy said...

Alas...our meecies are back too...Harry got one..with his big paw, but I think he only wanted to play, but a big Hunterway knows no better...

Gorgeous card, love this image and your fantastic colouring...

Luv CHRISSYxx

What an adorable hedgie! Poor Toad, being attacked by a mouse! As for Vincent, he should be ashamed of himself, scared of mice! What's the world coming to when a cat like Vince is scared of a mouse? Hope you can get them dealt with since the Toad and the cat won't...Squirrel to the rescue!
