I have to apologise for the quality of this photo, i do normally take them in daylight, but it was almost dark by the time i snapped this!! Where does the time go? :)
My design today uses another of my fabulous new House Mouse stamps. I think i will never be tired of looking at such cute creatures :) This is my entry for the current sketch challenge over at Friday Sketchers, and this week it was Heidi's turn!
I have stamped my 'Sunny Side Up' using Timber Brown Stazon onto watercolour paper, and coloured in using a waterbrush and Adirondack ink pads. I've also highlighted the seeds in the sunflower with an Inkssentials white opaque pen. Papers are all Basic Grey, Archaic,Sugared and Sultry 6 x 6 pads, and the sentiment printed from the PC.
Sue, a friend of mine suggested that this image would be good for a retirement card, so, i took her advice :0) Now i just need someone i know, to retire!!! :)

Thanks for popping in today, hopefully i will be back very soon with more to share :)
