Good morning, Peeps :)

I hope this windy/sunny day finds you all well?

My crafting at the moment is intermittent - apologies for that! Hospital appts etc taking priority and trying to feel well is a big ask!

Anyway, I have managed to create a commissioned card for a lady's 30th birthday.  It wasn't a usual request for flowers, etc - the recipient wanted a card with cheese on it!!  I had a search around for 'cheese' images & came across the wonderful digi world of Meljen's Designs & I must say, I was like a kid in a sweetie shop, I spent tons of time looking at all her wonderful designs - and found this cheeky cheesy mouse image called 'Cheesy Mouse' - super cute little fella!



I spent a relaxing time colouring the image ( I know, room for improvement but I'll get there!) before looking through all my crafty stash for papers, dies etc to put together the card above. The flowers were made by myself too.  I wanted the colour palette to fit the cheesy yellow theme & the mouses' red cheeks ( I don't know why I chose to colour his cheeks red...but hey, I went with it and kinda liked it!).

Anyway, hope you like it!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge(s):
Meljen's Designs ~ Anything goes (08/05)

Have yourselves a good day,

Until next time,
