Mouse Alert

What difference a day makes, feel much better and now I've told myself to go with the flow which is for lumpy cards, I had a successful day and managed to make 9 cards which is a lot for me. With the awful weather we had yesterday I only managed to photo this card in between blustery winds and hailstones but least its not as bad as the poor people up in Cumbria.
My card is following the sketch on Sketch Saturday and using Doodlebug papers I had left over from last year. I've used a Penny Black Mice and an awful lot of stickles on the snowflakes.
I've counted the Christmas cards I've made and I need another 30, so I might have to go missing for a couple of days but we will see how I get on.

Hi Debby,
I'm so sorry I have not been by for a while, especially when you have taken the time to leave me such lovely comments. Sorry you have not been well, but it's good to hear you are on the mend. I just love your style, nobody does Penny Black as well as you. Your colouring is gorgeous. Hey, there's nothing wrong with cute & lumpy. It's what I see every time I look in the mirror. Well lumpy anyway, LOL!!
Hugs,
Andie xx
