Sweet Dreams

Afternoon all, how are we?  Nearly the weekend.  Normally that would raise a whoop from me but this weekend means the end of our week off.  Sob!

Anyhoo, I have a card for you for three challenges

And because it is very much a CAS card I am also using is as a reminder for
the first challenge from WITHOUT WORDS
(you still have a week left to enter) with the theme of Autumn.

Sorry that I forgot to write down the name of the stamp but it is definitely House Mouse!  I used up odds and ends from my scraps box for the paper strips, I think they are Basic Grey and Little Sizzlets.  The one word sentiment is LOTV.  Image painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers).

And I would like to show you a couple of quirky items - on Wednesday we went on a brewery tour of Adnams in Southwold.  Imagine my delight to find this

What a shame that it was in their Museum rather than in the shop for sale!

And this morning, on a trip to The Range to stock up on Bristol Board, Toad bought me a money box for my card sales.  I think it's really appropriate

How cool is that?  It's ceramic so I'm gonna have to be careful with it.

Hugs, Sxx

Fabulous card, love those little mice.

The beer is so perfect for you, you'll have to make a label for your bottles.

Wonderful money box and as it's ceramic, no pinching the money out of it!!!! I do have a little trick though! I learned when I was a child, slip a knife in and the money slips out onto the knife!!!! Only thing is I got told off quite severely, when my mother went to open the box and not all was as it should have been, I NEVER did it again, but this brought it back to me, oh! the shame!!!!!!!

What a fun piggy bank! er... pencil bank! I had no idea you had your own brand of beer-how cool. I love the house mouse card! I really like that you did the jelly beans in fall colors--like, that inspired! I would never think to make them any color but pastel and how boring is that? You rock!
