House Mouse - Springtime!

Afternoon from a sunny Scotland today!! Perfect for my day off!!

So what challenge to do today was the question - My beloved Mousies have been abandoned of late so with a theme of Springtime over at the House Mouse Challenge and a spring in my step!! LOL Out they came to play and my watercolours were happy too because they also got an airing!!

I love these colours together but I must say this card did not start off well in fact it almost got binned so after a couple of hissy fits and ripped up paper here and there at last it was done then I couldn't get a bloomin' decent photo too bright - Aaagh I was cracking up but here it is finalllllly!!! That spring in my step didn't take long to disappear I can tell ya!

What a lovely stamp - I haven't seen that one before. I love the colourway you've used and it was well worth finishing it and not chucking it.
