Where Does Time Go?

Where does time go, I just seem to be chasing my tale at the moment with the kids being off of school, so if I haven't popped by your blog this week, I promise I will be round either over the weekend or the start of the week. So please do accept my apologies.

I had to do the challenge over at House Mouse this time and it gave me a chance to use one of my favourite stamps, aren't these little critters so cute sheltering from the rain under these Autumn leaves.

I used this stamp which is called Autumn Sprinkles, and cut up one of my favourite papers which I have been saving for I don't know what, but it just went so well with the colours I had used for this stamp. The other reason for today's card is House Mouse & friends challenge blog posted about a challenge over at Midnight Madness Sketch challenge, where there are four fantastic House Mouse stamps up for grabs, I just couldn't resist as they are so gorgeous. Below is the sketch I followed, but I turned it on it's side.

2. Midnight Madness - MMSK # 127 - Sketch
