The story behind this is my daughter (Tinks) has just got a new hamster, she wanted a mouse but we researched it and were told they weren’t great pets to keep so we got a hamster instead. Just to confuse things she’s called her Mouse! I made this card from her mouse thanking Tinks for being her friend! She nearly got sent back (the hamster that is, not our daughter!) because she kept us awake half the night when she arrived trying a little Houdini act and practising morse code on her cage bars, but she is much, much happier now.
(This is her in the shop, she now has a very lovely house to live in and is pampered like a princess lol)
We’re always making coffee in our house, we’re officially addicts, so it worked perfectly that the little mouse was peeping out from behind a latte!
I got to play with my new MFT jumbo ric rac die, isn’t it fab! The papers are by Basic Grey
Here are the colours I’ve used. I meant to take a pic when I photographed my card and forgot, but the weather here is grim today, really overcast and rainy so it’s too dark to take a decent pic now.
Cup: B69, B29, B28, B24
Cup Label: BG10
Mouse: W5, W3, W1
Ears: R85, R83, R81
