The Food Of Love

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Sue's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Food" - Use something on your creation related to food.  As soon as I saw the theme I knew which stamp I had to use, I adore this stamp, my favourite mice eating my favourite food.  How sweet are they, so adorable.  And the little one who has over indulged and needs a nap in the napkin!
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

Today's News:-
Yesterday we went to The White Rose shopping centre to get my Mum's birthday presents and there was a Bird Of Prey rescue centre there.  Of course my seven year old Bobby was mesmerised, the way he loves animals.  He was stroking a Barn Owl and asking loads of questions, I think he'd charmed them as they asked him if he would like to hold an African White Faced Owl, it was only small and so beautiful.  He was over the moon, so elated, here he is

He has some little bruises where the talons dug into his arm but he doesn't care, the hand part of the glove is really padded but not so much on the part that covered Bobby's arm.  I suppose it's because older people have the owls sat on their hand not like Bobby and on the arm with him being so small.
There was some really big Birds Of Prey there and Bobby stroked them all, wasn't scared or worried what so ever.  What an experience for him.

That was right up Bobbies Street Tracy, the birds of prey are always so fascinating. We have a raptor centre just up the road and Zachary did his work experience there and really loved it.

The card is a different colour for you but beautifully put together as always.
