How can that be a mouse?!

Morning all, how are you on this bright and SUNNY Saturday morning?  I've been and had my unruly tail trimmed and coloured - I was starting to look like a dandelion and now I am all neat and tidy again.  Give it a week and I'll soon be refluffed I imagine.

I had the most bizarre start to my day.  I was in bed asleep (but more likely that dozy state between sleep and wake) when I became aware of a noise.  I shot straight up and pinged the light on with my heart pounding.  A mouse!  Gnawing my pillow for heavens sake!  Vince, where are you when I need you?  I sat there, rigid, listening for it again.  Nothing.  Not even a scamper.  After a few minutes I convinced myself that I must have been dreaming and lay down again.  And as my pre-trimmed wild and woolly fur hit the pillow I heard it again.  Oh for heavens sake.  In my tossing and turning nature, one of my curls was now making a bid for freedom and was just behind my ear, poking the pillow.  I felt such a fool.

Anyhoo, there is a huge beef casserole simmering away in the oven for tonight's dinner, so it is playtime but just before I vanish off into the studio I thought I would share this card with you.  I apologise for the photo.  I can't seem to get a picture of a 5x7 card without it looking squint.  

So this stamp is You And Me from LOTV
Stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Bristol Board
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are Dovecraft Back To Basics
Martha Stewart Heart Lace border punch
Paper Smooches sentiment
And an ordinary office hole punch for the dots

No challenges for this one as I haven't got the energy to look for them this morning.

I'm off to do some DT work and to make a card to share with you tomorrow.
Enjoy your weekend, whatever you are up to!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Yeah right! That's. It beef stew! You found the mouse and popped it in the stew pot! Pfft, scratchy hair on the pillow indeed. Lol. Your post titles always reel me in and then I get a humorous post to read with some fab eye candy to look at too. Cuteness, I love it.
Have a great Sunday, hopefully a little less scary than the beginning of the day... X
