I printed this image the other day when I was using my House Mouse Cd for my last card and made a quick simple card this afternoon. The sentiment is from the Desert Diva and seemed to fit the image perfectly. The little mouse is almost lost under the huge pile of presents that appear to be beautifully wrapped.

It's always handy to have a get well card ready to post and this image is from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Triple CD, the mouse with the leg injury doesn't seem at all upset at having a bandage applied. I've kept my card really simple for posting and because the image is quite large.The sentiment is from the desert diva who generously offers free sentiments on her blog at least a couple of times a month.
A dull day here so I'm off to do some grocery shopping and have a coffee in Huntly.

This Challenge we are fortunate to have Sharon Duncan as a sponsor. Sharon Duncan has previously sponsored some challenges when we had a prize from a sponsor, and thanks to Pamela contacting her has generously agreed to sponsor this challenge the team,using her Playful Pups Cd.
Remember that to enter and be considered for the prize you must use an element from a Cd and give that Cd credit in your post.
I used 2 of the backing papers with a tonic die, my dog has a "made with love"charm but I'm afraid it doesn't show up against his body.
Pop over and see the teams cards for inspiration.

It seems as though my cards my most recent Christmas makes all feature birds and this is yet another. CAS in style this time coloured with Promarkers and featuring another Stampendous stamp, I smudged the tail feathers , but hopefully managed to disguise the mistake by incorporating the smudge into the tail feathers. Sentiment from TLC

It was a beautiful day yesterday, we spent most of it in the garden tidying up before the weather changes, it's totally satisfying to see the effects of your hard work, I've still to pick the apples and pears from the trees, this has been a great year for them, but will leave that as long as possible, then some will be cooked and frozen and some made into chutneys. My diary is also pretty full for the next 2 weeks, meeting with friends and relatives I haven't seen for a while.
Thank you for your much appreciated comments on my last few cards, I do enjoy reading them.
Today's card is another for the Christmas box which is filling up quite nicely.

I try to have a few thank you cards ready to pop in the post and although the sentiment is "it's the little things" I would use this to say thank you too.
http://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/favourite-flowers-die-cut-or-bought-why.html I favour die cut flowers because they can be cut from papers used in the card

Almost the same as my robin card from last week, I liked the layout I used on it so a few minor changes in the addition of an image from The Best of La Pashe 2012 and fussy cutting the cardinal.
I used Promarkers again but found colouring this stamp much more difficult using only shades of red and some black/grey around the face. I looked at several photographs of cardinals to help me with the shading.
Many thanks to those who visit and continue to leave comments I really appreciate each one.
