Time For Tea...

Morning everyone.  Thanks so much for your kind comments on my last post.  It was so nice to hear from you all!!!  Please bear with me - I still can't spend very long at the computer but hope to visit all your blogs soon :)

Today I thought I'd share one of the cards that I made for my demo at The Craft Barn on Saturday.  This mice is just soooooooo sweet.  Infact all the mice are from this particular stamp sheet by Artemio.  The papers are from the Daydream First Edition paper pad and the die-cut label is Nestabilities Seventeen.  I didn't have any appropriate wording for this stamp so I handwrote 'Time for tea...'

Here's a closer look at the cute little mouse which of course I coloured using Copics.

Mouse - W7, W5, W3 and W1 Warm Greys
              R20 and R000
Yellows - YR23, YR21 and YR000
Oranges - YR68, YR61 and YR000
Browns - E77, E71 and E70
Greens - YG67, YG63 and G20

 I've decided that you lot know me too well as you were spot on with lilac featuring in my new craft room!!  Brown will feature too in due course as that will be the colour of my worktop.  Here's what my craft room looks like at the moment -
Still a way to go before I can start to move all my stuff in but I'm REALLY looking forward to it!!
