Mice are nice

Hello everyone, hope you have been enjoying the sunshine today.  At last a chance to get into the garden and start potting and pruning. One person I know who loves to do this is my mother in Law Pauline so I thought this card would be just right for her as a celebration of mothers day.  She has a beautiful garden and has even won a Birmingham in bloom competion recentley so I thought she would love these helpful little mice from Lilli of the Valley and have used them as the main design on the card.

The front of the card I coloured the image using spectrum noir pens trying to keep to the colours of the paper.

The stamp is the pottting shed Mice are nice

Opened up The papers I have used are from the LOTV pad Timeless Victorian one of my favorites

I used my favourite sentiment stamps also by LOTV

Bottom left corner
Bottom Right Corner a mini bouquet

I added some flowers from Ribbon Girl and from Hobby Craft to the top right hand corner
The sentiment from the front back panel

The inside sentiment was a stamp from the do crafts range which I put through an embossing folder and then inked with a little of Tim Holtz weathered wood distress ink

It is all packed up and ready for the post tomorrow so I hope she likes it

Thank you for droping by

Love from Maria
