There's a moose loose about this hoose

Oh ok, so it isn't a real moose, after all, you would surely notice if there was one of those on the loose in your house.  The footprints would be a dead giveaway.

I'm showing my age with the title of this post, oh those blissful mornings of Junior Choice with Ed Stewpot Stewart!  And if you are wondering ..... have a listen

Anyhoo, in case you have been living in a cupboard for the past week, there is a new Lili of The Valley release on the way (sooner if you are at the NEC this week) on 10 November.  

This adorable little Harvest Mouse is part of the Woodland Friends stamp (with a Squirrel and a Hedgehog)
I've painted him with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
The straw paper is an ancient remnant, in fact I think it was the last of what I had
Brown card is Bazzil
MFT double stitched circle die, Tonic plain circle dies, Memory Box stitched scalloped circle die
Lawn Fawn Scripty For You die (double cut for the shadow effect)
Martha Stewart grass border punch
Viva Pearl Pen - gold

Keep your purse on standby!

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

He's fabulous and yes, I agree, that straw paper is perfect for him.
Lovely image made even more lovely by your soft golden colouring.

A perfect autumnal card Squirrel and the straw paper is brilliant. I remember Junior choice and actually saw Ed Stewpot Stewart at wembley stadium in 1982 on a school trip to watch an England v Ireland ladies hockey match!! xx

Hahah! I now have that song going round my head - and that silly Maynards wine gum advert they used it on. This is so super cute - reminds me of the Rabbie Burns poem I had to recite when I was 10 at school 'Tae a Mouse'....

Squirrel, this is beautiful such gorgeous delicate colour work - anyway, I too remember Junior Choice, I had a song played for me on there on my 7th Birthday, asked for by my cousins, it was 'Tom Tom Turnaround' - giving my age away or what! So glad someone else remembers those halcyon days!
