Good Morning everyone, hope you are all well. My daughter is now full of the joys of summer again having spent most of Saturday night being sick!!!!! Just relieved it wasn't something more serious - as all Mothers (and Dads of course) I am sure are the same as me - worry that it may be a hospital visit and something life threatening!!
So my card for today - I used a House Mouse stamp. Now I had up till last week only one HM stamp which I purchased on ebay and was not cheap - admittedly it was a big one!!! Nevertheless I have not bought any more for that reason as they were only wood mounted. So as I was watching Create and Craft last week Joanna Sheen came on showing some unmounted HM stamps - boy was I pleased so I waited until they were on the JS site and purchased some (she is still cheaper even with the members 10% discount). This image is from the Birthday Ice Cream set - isn't it fun - as are all the HM stamps.
Here is the closeup....................
I have coloured the image with my trusty water colour crayons - I always go back to them.
The sketch is from Friday Sketchers shown below...........
