Penny Black Anniversary Mice

Men they make plans to be out of the house Saturday night and all day Sunday and then cancel them, I just don't get as much done as I plan when he's under foot never mind it makes a change from hubby working. I did manage to make a card for Penny Black Challenge who are celebrating their 1st Birthday, so you had to make a celebration card, I went with an Anniversary card so I could use these cute mice, the papers are K & Company, BerrySweet and blame Bev for the roses she had a link to Wild Orchid and these roses are such a good price. Just need to use them a lot to get them out of my system.
So while on holiday DD and I got out our books and popped the bookmark on the cover of the book for safe keeping while we read and hubby says where's mine, this is the man that reads one book a year. So I kept my promise and made him one using scraps, I used Simon Says Stamps, Deer with Forest Family set,
I did manage to do my CJ entry which took a bit longer than I planned too, but it worked out brilliantly but can't show it yet.
