Penny Black Mice Again

Well Mr Mojo has left the building but there is nothing like a pair of mice to help him return. It's been hard to get motivated but I coloured these mice and I used my fave Bo Bunny papers from last year that I found in a craft shop while up MIL. I've followed the sketch over on A spoonful of sugar, I did find this a bit tricky cos I didn't want a boring circle behind the image so my extra large Daisy punch came in handy for this.
It seems ages ago we went up to MIL but even that didn't go according to plans. DS and DD were coming with us but DD went to work on Weds morning and came home with a frightful head cold and she had a red nose like Rudolph only it didn't flash.
Then Thurs morn while we were getting ready to leave DS rings to say he's been awake all night with chills, cough and a terrible headache, we're pretty sure he had flu not sure whether he oinked, so we left them both at home.
The following day DD who didn't feel too bad and definitely suffering from a cold had to go and pick up Tamiflu for her brother, good job she had her swine flu jab a few weeks ago.
Like I said I did manage a visit to a craft shop and popped into The Range too but there wasn't much there.
Enough waffling, need to finish a layout, CJ and I've a few images coloured ready to be used for cards.

Absolutely adorable card! Where did you get your daisy and retro flowers punches? Are they punches or die cuts? Who makes them? I love them when I see them on your cards and would love to get my hands on them!

Hope your DD and DS soon recover, great mice and beautiful daisy, papers and layout. Love the daisy instead of circle, I hate circles on cards unless the image is in it.
Happy crafting
