Super mouse

Good afternoon. Not much else to do around here at the moment as the lounge is still very much out of bounds - see photos at end of this post - so I have been in my little craft haven for most of the day - unfortunately I only have 1 card I can share with you though for now as the others are for my DT work over the next few weeks.
 This month sees the birthdays of my two eldest sons - Jamie will be 27 on 11 June and Aaron will be 25 on 10 June - so I have a number of cards to make for them.

I have made this card for Jack (my youngest son) to send to Jamie - he is definitely his hero.

I knew as soon as I saw this adorable free image from Katharina from Whiff of Joy Stamps that it would be perfect for Jack's card to Jamie. Thank you for the image Katharina.
I have coloured Spider Henry with PM's and even had a little go at some shading - need lots more practice still!!!
DP's are from Pink Petticoat - Big Fella Kit
Matha Stewart border punch
Stars punch
Sentiment - Craftwork cards

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

The Pink Elephant - Bright Fun Colours

So here are day 2 photos of the lounge:

So all that needs to be done now is the floor to be sanded and oiled and new skirting boards put on. Then hopefully the decorator can come in and paint! I'm sure it will be all worth it in the end lol!!

Have a wonderful evening.
Thanks for popping by.
