Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice

Here I am again!! Yep, another House Mouse card. On Monday, I went on a shopping bus trip to Proserpine which is about two hours north of here. We went to quite a few shops and one of them was Iddy Biddy Cottage where I found some lovely patty cake ribbon. Well I couldn't resist it. Before you ask, yes I did buy other things there. Then on Tuesday, I was in town and I saw the new Kaisercraft Sugar Sugar papers and matching brads. Mmmmm well, the ribbon went exactly with the papers. Bargain!! rofl
The House Mouse Monday challenge this week is a card for Mother. Well my Mum isn't here anymore, but I dedicate this card to her. The image I used always gives me a chuckle and Mum would have liked too. I did a bit of a search today looking for a suitable sketch and found this one, Mojo Monday Week 73. Perfect. I didn't add very many embellishments ├žause I wanted to showcase the image, with the paper and ribbon.
Thanks for looking and hope you like my card. I do apologise for the photo. I'm pretty sure everything is straight. Must be my bedtime.
