Good Morning!
Whooo! Our Grandson's passed his driving test. not that he can afford a car and our Son's been looking to insure him, it's in the region of £3,000!! 

Two images today both FromtheHeart.  Spring Fence and this cute little mouse  Mouse's Valentine 
Yes! I know hearts are red, but I thought he would blend in lovely with the plant climbing up the fence..A little guy who could be used all year round! Coloured with Copics. Papers from stash..
The embossing folder is from Crafts Too.
Yes! It's sketch time again and I'm a tad earlier than last week.. I really have followed it again this week perhaps my embellishments a little large {Mouse} but, otherwise it ticks the boxes..

Challenges entering..

Cute mouse, love his little sweater!, great interpretation of the sketch and the green hearts do tie in well with the fence image (beautiful colouring!)
Well done to your grandson, better start saving for the insurance!!!

Cute card! I'm totally fine with the green hearts as they fit into the garden scene better that way. So sweet!

Pia S said...

I think this is really sweet. You've created a beautiful spring scene, but I think this mouse would be equally perfect for winter or Christmas too. Great idea coloring the hearts green, they now look like leaves!
