I know the last post was a little dark I might have to change the background as the blog looks a little dark itself too...
Anywho I made some thak you cards for all my birthday pressies so making my nans thank you card first I had to make a mouse. You see when I was 6 I made her a badge saying I think mice are rather nice and she sent back the mouse poem...
I think mice are rather nice.
Their tails are long, their faces small
They haven't any chins at all.
Their ears are pink, their teeth are white,
They run about the house all night.

They nibble things they shouldn't touch
And no one seems to like them much.
But I think mice are nice.
So now I buy her a present for christmas and birthday which has to have a mouse theme or a card with a mouse. Hence the thank you card looks like this ...

I am really trying to be a good blogger except things get in the way like work etc. My house has been invaded at the mo by a builder named Steve. He is very good and has put on a new roof to our very old conservatory and is currently plastering the walls which have seen huge leaks (no not the veggie kind!) 
I have been busy at the retreat and have made some really nice cards which I will set up over this week to show you whilst I make more cards :) ... See I am getting ahead of myself Honest!!!

Hiya everyone!!!

Whilst changing my blog getting rid of old widgets etc i thought I would say hi and I'm off to IOW again woohoo! Not only for a craft weekend but I also get one year older (or younger) in my case. I am also putting up some piccies for my friends to see what treats they get too! Yummy, I have really got into this baking lark after getting a Kenwood and it's so easy to cook up a batch of treats such as rocky road and sticky choc chip cake! Hope everyone likes it ;) Julia x
