No bowling tonight! The other team couldn't raise a team because of holidays.
So we will be playing one Wednesday in the middle of August instead.. So time to play.

I've used a Impression Obsession 'Cover a Card' stamp called Bubbles for the background..Stamped with VersaMark and WOW Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter.. The House Mouse is a Stamp from 'Christmas Fireplace'. Coloured with Copics and Lots of Glitter on their little hats...I've covered the image with Acetate and used Gelly Roll pen for the 'snow'....

The sentiment is recycled  from a last year's  Christmas card .
