Graduation Mouse

This is the last of the Graduation cards I made for my 60 year old Aunt who has graduated. Just had to use this cute mouse, he is so adorable, and I absolutely love House Mouse stamps, and it looks lovely sat in a matching gift box.

I am entering this into :-

House Mouse challenge - challenge 74 - "The letter B" (my B's are - Black, bow, blooms, box, brad)

Papertake Weekly - "Cutie Patootie" (I think all House Mouse images are cute )

Just an update with my sister's condition for my regular followers. My Sister was allowed to come home yesterday afternoon, my hubby went to pick her up, we got her some shopping and my Auntie sat with her for a bit. I have checked she is ok, as I wanted her to sleep at my house, but she said I just want to get into my own bed and sleep. So she's all set up with everything she needs and her phone beside her, we don't live far from each other so if she needs me I can get straight there. Besides I need to be at home as her kids are dropped of at my house at 6.30am on a morning. We are not letting her own kids know she's home yet so they don't get upset as she's not strong enough to see to them. But Thursday or Friday I'm going to take them home all being well. Then she's off to join my mam and Dad for a week in Blackpool as they are there on holiday for a fortnight. So things are looking up for her.

I went out and bought Bobby and the twins some bits of toys to play with today, three of everything so they don't fight LOl! They had everything the same, colour the lot and they still found something to fight about. But thats kids for you!!!!!!

Thank you for calling by my blog and for such wonderful comments you all leave, they really do keep me going.

Happy crafting
