Good Afternoon!
Been doing a bit of gardening today. There's forecast of rain and I'd pulled some dandelions out of the lawns.  So been patching up and popping grass seeds down. Looks as though we have mole hills now when you look out the window!

Now this little sweetie lives at Bugaboo Stamps and it's called Mouse Balloons
Coloured with Copics... I've used a spellbinder die to 'cut' out one of the balloons to turn it into a shaker card...Papers from stash...Fence Magnolia die and the felt clouds Memory Box die.
 Okay the clouds seem a bit dark now I've taken the photo? but, they do match the mouse lol.

He is a little cutie Chrissy and love your shaker balloon..if I pricked out the dandelions in my lawn there would only be dirt'd rather have mole hills I think..


Chris said...

Love that fat little mouse, he's sooo cute, the shaker balloon is a brilliant idea! Looks as if he might be in for a soaking with those grey rainclouds :))
Have a lovely weekend.

I'm used to seeing dark clouds on the sky, plenty of them this spring, so nothing looking unusual to me, lol. Great idea making the image part of the shaker design, cutting out one balloon. Sweet!

Well first of all I hope you keep those rain clouds over your neck of the woods as I have a lot of washing to do!
What a really, really lovely super cute image and love the huge balloons that the little chappy is holding.
Sorry if I have not commented during the past 10 days but I have been on holiday, but thanks for your comments.
