A Mouse & Two Bears

Morning all, it's the real Squirrel here today, just popping by with a little card for the House Mouse & Friends challenge 154 which this time is Monochrome.

This is a House Mouse cling stamp from Stampendous
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment is Kaisercraft
Papers are a mixture of Papermania and Nitwits
Border is from stash
The only "tool" used was the shaped corner punch

It has been a fabulous week's holiday with Toad.  We have had a very relaxing time and he has even managed to get a new batch of home brew on the go.

On Wednesday we hopped on a train and took ourselves off to Cambridge for the day.  It's such a beautiful city but neither of us have been more than a couple of times in the past.  We had a super day, including a visit to the Build-A-Bear Workshop in the Grand Arcade.
Let me introduce you to Arnie and Elvis, sitting by the river in Christ's Piece, watching the ducks and swans swimming by.  If you think they look fat, they have just scoffed their lunch.

Right, we are off to the seaside today, after a visit to my parents, so let's hope the sun keeps shining.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Hello Squirrel.
Your card is gorgeous, adorable image and wonderful layout.
Elvis and Arnie are adorable. My girls love the Build-A-Bear Workshop, they used to go there nearly every birthday when they were younger so now have a lovely collection of bears and clothes.
I hope you have a nice time at the seaside
